Kimberley shares her top 5 holiday gifts for travellers on CityLine.ca.

1. Slippers from Bucky: ‘They are plush interiors, they are ballet style, they come with their own little bag, and as soon as the plane is settled and I’ve got my seatbelt on, I’m taking my shoes off and I’m putting on my Bucky’s,’ says Kimberley. ‘They’re also great for hotel rooms, too, because you don’t want to run around in your bare feet in a hotel room!’

2. Sunscreen from Sun Bum: If you’re travelling only with carry-on luggage, how do you pack your sunscreen? ‘I found some wonderful travel-sized sunscreens from Sun Bum,’ says Kimberley. ‘You’d expect a company that comes from Cocoa Beach, Florida to know something about sun products!’

3. SuitSuit hard case luggage: ‘One of my frustrations when I’m travelling is when you’re waiting for your bag to come off the belt and your black bag looks like everybody’s black bag! So I looked for suitcases that are really identifiable, like the ones from SuitSuit. They’re hard cases, high-impact graphics, and they’re really, really a lot of fun,’ enthuses Kimberley.

4. Powermonkey portable charger: ‘Another dilemma that hits us when we’re travelling is how do you charge your iPod, your iPad, all the things that you want to travel with you,’ explains Kimberley. ‘So there’s a wonderful portable power charger called Powermonkey which you can pre-charge and use that to power up all your electronics and it’s a really great thing to have with you when you’re on the road.’

5. Designer Bags on Wheels: ‘This is a wonderfully practical laptop bag that looks very stylish that has a pull-up handle so you can wheel it as a carry-on. It’s chic enough to take with you to the next home show or any kind of a weekend trip, as well,’ says Kimberley.To read more Holiday Gift Guides from the experts on CityLine, visit CityLine.ca.

Gifts Made Easy

Someone once said that Christmas is a race to see which gives out first, your money or your feet.

Save your Sanity and Holiday Shop like a Pro

Someone once said that Christmas is a race to see which gives out first, your money or your feet. Well, save your feet! We spent the past weeks sourcing those perfect gifts for foodies of every age and stumbled on a well-stocked resource, our local pharmacy. From Gourmet Hot Cocoa for her to a Baileys Irish Cream for him, and even a Kinder Surprise for the wee one in your life, these gift ideas are sure to please all of the foodies on your list.

Don’t let the tick tock of the countdown clock (How many days until Christmas?) give you a panic. Since you’re likely to be stopping by the pharmacy on your way home from work anyway, this option maximizes the one commodity that’s even less plentiful than money…time. Plus, prices are competitive with any retail store and opening hours are usually much longer. But don’t let me convince you, check out the great gift ideas below.

1.Baileys Original or Baileys Irish Cream (180g) ~ $8.99 each;2.Indulge 5 Minute Chocolate Cupcake Mix ~ $9.99;3.Starbucks Gift Basket ~ $19.99;4.Indulge Coffee and Green Tea Set (available in 3 flavours) ~ $9.99 each;5.Indulge Gourmet Hot Cocoa Cup & Saucer Gift Set ~ $9.99;6.New Kinder Mix, Includes Plush Toy and Assortment of Chocolate (116g) ~ $10.99;7.Hot Chocolate Hottie Set ~ $19.99;8.Cranberry Tangerine Cosmopolitan Mix or Pomegranate Martini Mix ~ $7.99 each;9.Ferrero Rocher Cone (350g) ~ $17.99.
