NEW YORK (AP) — Looking to buy a holiday gift for a loved one who travels?
These gadgets and comfort items will come in handy: a universal travel adapter that converts electric current around the world, portable chargers, power strip, compression storage bags, packing cubes and ultralight nylon packing bags, a hand-held scale for weighing luggage and colorful luggage tags.
To help travelers get some rest, consider ear plugs, eye mask, noise-canceling headphones and a portable white noise machine.
A few new-ish items to consider: the trtle (TUR-tle) travel pillow, which wraps around your neck and supports your head with a rib system, and bike helmets that fold flat, like the Morpher, which is approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
