Business class: The perfect presents
By Josh Noel
If you're stumped about what to get the business traveler in your life for the present-buying season, here are a few of the more interesting things that have come across my desk lately. They achieve a mix of novel, practical and well-enough made that I wouldn't hesitate to put them in my bag for my next work trip.
These solve the age-old problem of how to listen to music while drifting off to sleep. Lying on headphones or ear buds just doesn't work. SleepPhones are headphones within an ultrasoft band that wraps around your head to provide both comfort and a little warmth. They work on an airplane, in a hotel room or beside someone not interested in drifting off to Mazzy Star's lovely brand of spacey folk-country (perfect for bedtime, trust me). The audio isn't the greatest, but it's good enough. And what do you care? You're going to sleep. $49.95; sleepphones.com
