Check these out for yourself or for the perfect gift for friends and family. [Note: click on blue product product names for links to products]

children's animal luggage, best travel products

wireless router, best travel products

RAVPower FileHub Plus Wireless Router

Paying for wifi in a hotel is one of my pet peeves. And it’s even worse when they charge per device. If I’m traveling with my husband, that would be six devices. Which, when I type this, sounds excessive, but I’m betting you’re right there with m. With this wireless router you can easily convert a wired network to a secure wireless one.  It’s portable enough to take along on all your trips; $39.99.
