Travel still has that romantic, escapist pull — even if security lines at the airport dim the glow of the jet-set life just a bit — and we all have something in our possession that reminds us of a travel experience. When we do travel, the things we carry with us become our best friends, and a source of familiarity and comfort when we're far away from home. With those things in mind, we culled 15 gifts that range from the practical — travel bags, passport holders — to the indulgent — say, a mask pendant necklace that looks like it was snatched from a treasure chest or a coin-covered scarf. If you have someone in your life who loves to travel, or simply dreams of far off places, these gifts are ideal to give for the holidays. You'll be forever associated with your friend's dream destinations, and that's a positive connotation, indeed.
