December 19  #TMOM Twitter Party –  Last Minute Travel Gifts

Every year, my kids make a countdown chain. Each day, they remove a link, and the length of the chain indicates how much longer they’ll wait for Christmas.

The chain mocks me. It grows shorter and shorter, and I grow more and more desperate. I’m out of time and I’m out of ideas. What do I buy the people on my holiday gift list? I want them to feel loved, special to me. Somehow, a gift certificate just won’t cut it.

So it’s TravelingMom to the rescue! Your friends at #TMOM know all about giving great gifts (after all, we’re moms!). And even at the last minute, we can come through with great stocking stuffers, presents, and Pollyannas – especially for those on your list who like to travel. (And who doesn’t?)

One of our favorite ideas, of course, is giving the gift of travel itself. After all, how many video games can one kid need? We suggest turning off the tech and plugging into each other – and what better than travel to make those connections? A gift of travel can benefit the whole family (and leave you with the gift of memories as well).

Need something that fits in a box or stocking? Travel gifts come in all sizes, shapes and price ranges. Whether it’s the perfect travel accessory, a state of the art gadget,  a new piece of luggage, or a great camera, there’s something for everyone on your list. So join us as we finish up this year’s  holiday shopping – TravelingMom style!

Need more ideas – or want to share your own last minute gift success stories? Join the December 19 #TMOM Twitter Party, when we invest an hour to make holiday gift giving easier. You’ll leave with a smile – and great gift ideas for everyone on your nice list.
