The Perfect Cruise Gifts for Stocking Stuffers:

  • Towel clips These perfect gadgets will solve all your tanning dilemmas while laying out in the Caribbean sun on your next cruise. Just clip to secure your towel to the chair and no more blowing in the wind.
  • Travel luggage scale– Always worried that your suitcases will weigh in at more than 50 lbs. at the airport? Well, worry no more because this portable scale will allow you to weigh your luggage when packing to ensure it is less than 50 lbs. and avoid those embarrassing moments at the airport.
  • Extra power outlets– We cruisers all know that outlets are very limited on ships, so it is always a good idea to bring a small multi-charger tool to allow for extra charging locations for all those portable devices.
  • Luggage tags – All luggage tends to look the same, so make yours stand out. Whether it is colorful, meaningful, or sparkly, a personalized luggage tag that expresses your special traveler’s personality is a great little item to add to his or her stocking.
  • Passport case – We all know you need the proper paper work to make sure your trip goes off without a hitch. With a passport holder, you can secure all these important documents in one place while adding a little touch of style at the same time.

Even though she may say, “Baby, All I Want for Christmas is You”, These are the Top 5 Cruise Gifts the Princess in your Life Really Wants:

5. Double wine bottle protector – The perfect gift to secure those 2 bottles of wine she is allowed to bring onboard that next cruise. Remember what they say, “Happy wife; happy life.” And wine always helps that!

4. Carry-on– Every woman needs a durable and fashionable carry-on bag to stow away those essentials for the plane ride and time aboard the ship before her luggage arrives. So why not surprise her with that perfect piece of luggage that suits her style.

3. Sunglasses– Whatever your Mrs. Claus’ style is, a new pair of shades is sure to put a smile on her face and make her feel a bit more fashionable on your next cruise.

2. Spa Treatment – If you have an upcoming cruise planned, why not purchase your honey a relaxing day at the spa. Whether you chose to buy her a pre-cruise spa day where she can get a manicure and pedicure in preparation for the cruise or you purchase her an onboard spa treatment where she can enjoy a massage or facial, she will definitely be much appreciative of this gift.

1. Jewelry– Every woman likes to get dressed up and feel glamorous once in a while. What better gift than a nice piece of jewelry that she can showcase in all those formal portraits you will be taking on your next cruise?

Now here are the Top 5  Cruise Gifts for the Darling Hubby in your Life:

5. Digital photobook – He is going to take a ton of picture on the cruise, but you know he will procrastinate about getting them organized. So whether you purchase a photo album full on memories from previous cruises or a gift card to use for an upcoming trip, you can be sure that his photography will provide lasting memories.

4. Shavetech Razor – Even though he hates getting ready for formal pictures, he reluctantly does so to make you happy. Make sure he looks as sharp as possible for these photo-ops with this slim travel razor. It charges with a USB connection and fits nicely in his luggage, taking up virtually no room. Less complaining and more clean-shaven smiles!

3. Travel Backpack – He wants to bring all of his digital gadgets along for the trip, so he will need a place to store them. A versatile day pack that contains plenty of storage pockets would make a great gift. Consider one made of waterproof material to ensure his items won’t get damaged during your next beach break or shore excursion.

2. Go Pro– The tech savvy guy in your life will love this gadget. It is sure to be a great gift for capturing videos of all the memorable occasions on your next vacation.

1. Kindle– If he likes to pick up a good book while relaxing, why not save some space in the carry on and preload some of his favorite reads to a new Kindle. He will certainly enjoy reading on this new gadget by the pool on your next cruise vacation.
