Tinggly Experience Packages
Tinggly Experience Packages

Tinggly is a unique company that provides you with a more adventurous option for gift giving. I’ve always said that things are worthless, but experiences are priceless. Instead of gifting the usual things that mean little and carry little value, why not let Tinggly hook you up with an Experience Gift Box that will allow your friend to choose from hundreds of experiences around the world?

We’ve used the gift box to explore lots of fun places and activities, like this beer tour in Amsterdam or this amazing wine paired dinner in Paris. It’s a great way to give something a little bit different, and be sure they’ll love it. You don’ t even have to do the choosing for them. Just give them a gift box and they can choose from hundreds of activities all over the world. It’s easy to use and just takes a few clicks of a mouse.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about the travel clothing made by Bluffworks , like their fantastic travel pants, and blazer, and travel shirt for men, and their incredibly soft T-Shirts, blouse and dress for women. They are made from a quick-dry polyester material that looks and feels amazing, but has a bit of stretch and is wrinkle resistant.

These are just the kind of clothes a sophisticated traveler needs. You can fold them up in your suitcase (they’re really lightweight!), and pull them out to wear immediately without worrying about wrinkles.

Universal Travel AdapterLearn More

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...Learn More

We’ve had many different travel adapters over the years and they’ve mostly all been clunky and not super helpful, but this upgraded power adapter is super streamlined, and it works in over 200 countries with US/UK/EU/AUS plugs and 4 USB ports. You can charge 5 different devices at a time on this thing. Super useful!

Portable Mobile Phone ChargerLearn More

Everyone with a smartphone needs one of these portable charger packs. This one is one of the most powerful ones I’ve seen and it gets fantastic ratings on Amazon from users. It has the capacity to charge your phone 6 times, or your tablet twice. You can also charge multiple devices at the same time with the 3 USB ports.

I’m fairly certain the cell phone makers purposefully make the battery run out faster and faster as you approach 2 years of use. If you’re in that stage, you really need to get one of these, so you’ll never end up in a situation with no battery left.

If the person you’re buying for likes to travel for wine, like we do, then this is the perfect gift to give them. You can securely pack up to 12 bottles of wine in this suitcase. The secure, padded spaces make sure the wine stays secure during transit.

You can also remove one or both of the inserts and use it for clothing, or a mix of both. The suitcase has spinner wheels, so it’s easy to push. And it conforms to all TSA airline standards.

If you or a friend are a wine lover, you absolutely must sign up for the Naked Wine Club. It’s a great way to get better prices on better wine.

Here’s how it works: When you sign up for the wine club, you become an Angel. You invest $20 or more a month into your Naked Wines piggy bank. Naked Wines uses that money to invest in talented, independent winemakers. In return, they give you exclusive wines at insider prices (25%-50% off retail).
