    When I traveled for work I would get the kids snow globes and pennants (state or college) from each airport. easy to buy light to carry.

    Couldn’t do that now. TSA considers snow globes to be potential dangers – that liquid could be bomb material!

    Snow globes and key chains are a good idea!

    If the airport is big enough, they’ll usually have one store that has more unique items than the usual souvenir junk. I’ve bought some nice souvenirs in the Madrid airport that everyone compliments, but I’ve never found them elsewhere.

    What?? John, you should have gotten them some wind-up chattering teeth from the convention. The kids would have loved them. ;-)

    It was so easy in The “Beanie Baby Craze”

    If I knew someone expected a gift, I’d shop before I got to the airport. The only thing I ever bought at the airport (other than drinks or a magazine) was a stole to keep warm

    John was at a dentist’s convention. You can’t find much for your kids there.

    You can get some really cool things at airport stores. You just have to know where to look. I think it’s nice that he wants to get the kids something. :-)

    The last time I travelled, I made sure I had everything I needed, such as batteries for the camera. (film in the old days) I noted these items were available at the connecting airports – but no stated price! This means you pay full flaming retail – about double what you’d paid at home.

    Lynn ‘s Notes:
    The gift from the airport gift shop was a subject that brought a number of responses. Some letters came from travellers who bemoaned the fact that a small gift was expected. Others enjoyed shopping for treasure and the surprise it would bring. It was a really divisive subject and I learned that when it comes to gifts and the business traveller, it’s much better to receive. Personally, I love to shop for “gifties” and sometimes the airport has the best shops!

    Does any one remember when the kids were grown, Michael has a family, Elizabeth was about to get married, then zap we’re back at the beginning?
