THE countdown continues. With only four days left before Christmas festivities commence, last-minute shoppers may be in need of a few more gift ideas for the travellers on their list.

Today’s products are available at UN Luggage, located in the heart of Winnipeg’s historic Ex­change District. The company has been serving travellers for over 50 years and offers a wide array of luggage, business cases, handbags, and plenty of stocking-stuffer type accessories. You’ll find them at 175 McDermot Avenue. Happy holidays!

Patagonia lightweight travel pack

If you're looking for a bag that's functional without being bulky, super lightweight at only 10 ounces, and holds tons, then this is the bag for you. It features side water bottle pouches and a few nifty pockets, (inside and out) to keep things organized, and it can be used as a tote, or converted into a backpack. Made from a water repellent parachute-like nylon material, it's washable, dries fast and folds down into a small pack that can easily be stuffed into another bag, no problem.

Price: $85

The 150th reader to e-mail me gets it for free.

 

Fulton tiny umbrella

Exceptionally compact and lightweight, the Fulton umbrella is a perfect travel accessory and a must for your luggage or carry-on. Small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, or a shirt pocket, it folds down flat to measure just 6 cm wide and 15 cm long, for easy storage. It comes in a variety of designs and colours, including this pretty African daisy motif.

Price: $30

Wallpaper city guide

Designed with the avid traveller in mind, Wallpaper guides offer just the right amount of insider information on the world's most popular cities. They include information on where to stay and what to visit, and where you should eat, shop and be seen. Tabbed sections divide the book so you can easily find what you're looking for. It also includes colour-coded city maps, rate and currency cards, coloured photos, and an easy navigational tool. Compiled by the magazine's travel experts, the guides are the ultimate combination of form and function, and are the convenient size of a passport.

Price: $12

I have a Las Vegas Wallpaper City Guide for the 100th reader to e-mail me.
