2017 Holiday Gift Guide


olidays always bring thoughts of vacation and travel to us. From families gathering from all over the country to winter getaways in tropical locales, 'tis the season for making memories through experiences and thoughtful gifting! And we wouldn't be travel lovers if we didn't put our own destination spin on holiday gift guides! Since we think there are two kinds of gifting people: perfectly crafted, researched, and curated presents pro or "I'm going to wait for the very last minute to go shopping" aficionado, we like to think we have created a midpoint between the two with our 2017 gift guide collection! This year for Travels, we have designed three country-inspired gifts for your fellow wanderlusters with Mexico, Kenya, and Iceland in mind. Enjoy and may the travel bug bite you in the most festive kind of way!
