Christmas Gift Ideas for Frequent Travelers and Travel Lovers

Monday, November 24, 2014

I love picking out the perfect gifts for my family and friends. This year I decided to make a gift guide for travel lovers, which basically consists of things I've been loving this year or things I'd love to receive as a gift. From this list I most want the travel coffee pouches. My friend, K, shared a bunch of them with us as we were hanging out in Lugu Lake, Chia. They are perfect for travel - especially in Asia where coffee isn't as common.

Stay tuned until the end of this post for a giveaway!

The Bookworm Giveaway

Because who doesn't love books?

The Prize

Sixteen Kindle ebooks that are so good I'm already planning on reading all of them. Since we all just chose one of our favorite books to recommend, there's an awesome mix of genres.

The Terms

1) The Amazon Kindle app is available for a variety of devices, including PCs and Macs. If you're a diehard physical book lover who absolutely loathes digital reading, this might not be the giveaway for you. While we love physical books too, ebooks won because they're usually cheaper and can be sent instantly worldwide. No mail mishaps here. 2) Regardless, the winner will need a Kindle or Kindle app on some device, and be able to send me the email address associated with said account within 48 hours once notified of her status. If no contact has been made within 48 hours, I will select another winner. And naturally, I'll check the entries. 3) Once I have the email address, the winner should receive all ebooks within another 48 hours. 4) Giveaway is open internationally - but with conditions. If you're living abroad (and don't have a US billing address associated with your Amazon account) there may be copyright issues restricting what you can receive. In that case, instead of the ebook, you would automatically receive Amazon credit. If there's a problem with getting credit or receiving your books, contact me because 1) I'd like to know if there's an issue for future reference and 2) I'd like to help.

The Books

I tend to make things unnecessarily complicated and I always forget something. It probably would have been a good idea to ask for a short description of the books. . .but I totally didn't think of that until someone brought it up a few days ago. So I stole and/or paraphrased some bits from Amazon instead. Click on the slider image for the book link; the contributors are below.
