Frequent Travelers Like Gifts That Have a Dual Purpose



I’ll be honest, it wasn’t until recently that I wanted a ScotteVest item.  But with the new additions of the hoodie, vest and fabulous trench coat, a ScotteVest item (or 2) is on my list of wants.   These jackets- in mens and womens styles- are a combination of coat and travel bag.  Each item has “hidden” pockets to hold personal and electronic items safely and without adding unattractive bulk.  From $60

Luggage Is Always a Great Gift for theTraveler
