Two Awesome Travel Gifts

I received two awesome aviation gifts over the holidays that I think are worth sharing.  If you (or someone you love) are into flying, aviation, travel, or art then both of these items should go on your wish list.

Assouline produces some amazing coffee table books.  The Art of Flying came out earlier this year and it now has a permanent home on my coffee table.  The book is absolutely gorgeous and is contained within a hard sided box of sorts.  The book slides out easily.  

While not cheap, the book is a great edition to our living room and I've enjoyed looking at the amazing pictures of aviation over the years.

08 Left is one of my favorite aviation themed online stores.  I've purchased coasters and t-shirts for myself - both have been high quality and I've been really impressed with their customer service and price point.  They have SO many airports/cities (350+) that you can use to customize t-shirts, pillows, art, etc...

08 Left "our world"
We've been looking for an aviation themed piece of art for our home and finally found it before the holidays.  Titled "our world" and sold over the holidays as a fine art print, (vs. the metal prints currently for sale) the piece contains images of 30 airport control towers from around the world.  Hopefully they will bring back the lower cost print ($299) soon!

Framed and hanging on the wall, the piece feels really unique and totally matches our style and interest.  I would highly recommend a piece of art from 08 Left for your home.
