    I'd love a ticket to Europe, but more realistically, I'm hoping for Flight 001's intelligent gadget holder, the Grid-It!

    By Dorothy E. on December 17, 2010 2:54 AM

    I'd love an iPod!

    By shabbir ghadiyali on December 17, 2010 2:58 AM

    By kris yoho on December 17, 2010 3:17 AM

    This year I'm giving one of my favorite travel bags to several of my girlfriends...the "Mini Maxi Shopper" from German company Reisenthel. I always carry one in my purse or backpack when out traveling and shopping. Folded, it's about 6 inches, unfolded it's a great shopping bag size. It’s been called the “ultimate takeaway bag” and is a great alternative to plastic bags. The Mini Maxi Shopper is available in many colors and stylish patterns (less than $10).

    By Mike Leger on December 17, 2010 3:18 AM

    I am giving my wife and I two weekends this winter at the Mainstay Best Western in Newport RI. I would like to receive the same. While there we spend time accross the street at the Newport Grand Casino. We are always treated very well at the Mainstay and recomend it to all our friends. We often spend our February and April vacations at the Mainstay.

    By Joe A. on December 17, 2010 3:18 AM

    I'd Love to give an SUV to my wife.

    By Harry on December 17, 2010 3:36 AM

    I would love to give the BestWestern Travel gift to a child that needs to have some warmth and love in their life. It is better to give than to receive.

    I would like any gift related to travel be it hotel gift cards,restaurant gift cards,gas cards or other.Since we are retired now it is more difficult to feed my passion as frequently as I would like and gift cards enable us to do that!

    By Thomas on December 17, 2010 4:17 AM

    A cruise would be nice.

    By Karen Wilson on December 17, 2010 4:33 AM

    A GPS would be my gift of choice to give or receive. Peace of mind is a wonderful thing when your're traveling in an unfamiliar city. A GPS makes a new environment much more friendly.

    By Mrs G on December 17, 2010 4:40 AM

    I would love to use the money for our snowmobile trip. It is always a great time! This is my vacation for the year so I would like to make it a great one. The money sure would help tremendously!!!!

    By Susan Gaczewski on December 17, 2010 4:43 AM

    My daughter and I would love to be able to travel back to Dallas for the holidays and visit our old friends and "family". We moved away about 21/2 years ago. We have had some financial set backs this year and I'm not sure we will be able to make the trip.

    By Mark on December 17, 2010 4:43 AM

    I would like more time with the family, since I have worked out of state so much the last year.

    By wilbur scarbrough on December 17, 2010 4:43 AM

    i want a new case pocket knife and a pair of blue jeans.

    By Mirdza Malins on December 17, 2010 4:43 AM

    As I am advanced in age, (I am 86), I would really appreciate a Best Western gift card. The hotel is around the corner from my son's home in Niagara-on-the-Lake...and with the care I receive there and the warmth from visiting family it is ideal.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win something so meaningful at this special time of year!
    Mirdza

    By Mark on December 17, 2010 4:45 AM

    I would like to have a little more time with my family, cause I have been on the road so much this year.

    By Gary Shaw on December 17, 2010 4:45 AM

    We've used BW travel gift cards a lot over the years. Since we travel quite a bit in North America we find them very helpful. If everyone bought us BW gift cards we'd be happy.

    By Sharyn on December 17, 2010 4:48 AM

    We took our granddaughter to Niagara Falls Best Western a few weeks ago and she said it was the best trip she has ever been on. She met a great friend in the fantastic pool. We aren't able to splurge on her very often and we would love to do more but seniors with limited funds.

    By Kirk C. on December 17, 2010 4:53 AM

    I would like to receive a free room upgrade and extra bonus points for every stay. I'm a little short on my gold crown club upgrade status to the Diamond Elite level. and next year bonus points would be great.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years....may everyone have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!

    By Dora on December 17, 2010 4:53 AM

    I would love to have a lap top. We love to stay at the Best Western in Santee, South Carolina.

    All I would like for Christmas is for everyone to remember the true meaning of the season. Also, for my family, friends and relatives to have a safe holiday!

    By Heather on December 17, 2010 4:57 AM

    Can't think of a gift I would appreciate more than a BW gift card (Honestly! I know it just sounds like I want to win the contest). We've found our favourite place to stay. Taking the kids away for some fun is a luxury we can't often do on our own- so what a gift! It's the gift of memories!

    By Carol on December 17, 2010 5:00 AM

    I would love to receive a lap top this year so I can download pictures from my camera while we are traveling!

    Merry Christmas everyone and Happy traveling!

    By Heather on December 17, 2010 5:00 AM

    Honestly BW gift cards would be the best. They make a surprise getaway for our whole family- it's the gift of memories!

    By Michelle on December 17, 2010 5:06 AM

    I would like to give my husband the piece of luggage he would need for travelling in 2011. It seems the OGIO brand of bag is best one to suit his needs.

    By Vaune on December 17, 2010 5:07 AM

    I'd love to win a trip to a lodge somewhere snowy to take my kids skiing.

    By Prabaharan Ganeshan on December 17, 2010 5:10 AM

    I would love to get few days off so I can spend some time with my family. Because I have been sooo busy this year and didn't have much time for my kids.

    By Rick on December 17, 2010 5:12 AM

    a motorcycle for my wife so that we could travel to all the best western on the eastern seaboard

    Merry Christmas to all

    By diane on December 17, 2010 5:13 AM

    I would love to receive a travel gift card to use toward a carribean vacation. I have two girls in college, so you know I'm not going anywhere soon. Family time is and has always been so important to us and this gift would enable us to have some family time together.

    By Karen on December 17, 2010 5:13 AM

    A Best Western Travel Card would fit nicely in a small box, but when opened by my husband, would give him a memorable life experience!

    By Ben on December 17, 2010 5:16 AM

    Luggage the airlines can't destroy would be very nice.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Years

    By Phil McLellan on December 17, 2010 5:18 AM

    A new set of luggage would be nice...

    Phil & Kaye

    By Tim on December 17, 2010 5:18 AM

    I'd love a paid golfing trip to Arizona

    By Roger Costello on December 17, 2010 5:18 AM

    To give everyone the true Christmas Spirit to enjoy throughout the coming new year.

    By Brian on December 17, 2010 5:18 AM

    I like to give the opportunity for everyone to travel home for the holidays and spend Christmas with friends/family. However, I'd settle with giving a suitcase that converts to a backpack. I ahd one when I traveled Europe and it was great.

    By Rayman on December 17, 2010 5:20 AM

    A computerized telescope.

    By BJ Russell on December 17, 2010 5:23 AM

    We were stuck in the airport for a REALLY LONG time once. A travel Scrabble game would of helped with the boredom.

    By don on December 17, 2010 5:25 AM

    i would like a cruise around the world for christmas

    By hilljs on December 17, 2010 5:28 AM

    An e-reader is a great travel gift. No more space taking heavy books to deal with, and if you run out of books on the e-reader, you can update!

    By Jeannie Lehman on December 17, 2010 5:30 AM

    I want time with family members for a road trip in the United States. I love a road trip. Almost anywhere would be find. There is so much to see and do all over America.

    By Laura Smith on December 17, 2010 5:30 AM

    I would love to go on a road trip this year or save for a trip to Europe in 2012 for my sister's birthday.

    By Ronnie B on December 17, 2010 5:32 AM

    I would like to receive an all-paid for rental car for two weeks to take my husband to New England during the fall to see the gorgeous colors. We don't get that in central Texas.

    By Kathy Varey on December 17, 2010 5:32 AM

    I would love a GPS! I have absolutely no sense of direction and it would save me gas & stress! Have a safe & happy holiday season!

    By Melissa Jean on December 17, 2010 5:34 AM

    I would love to go to Disneyland for Christmas with my children.

    By Sue Anne Fones on December 17, 2010 5:36 AM

    A GPS and a bendy travel pillow that can be put in various different positions would be my favorites to give or get. You can't beat security and comfort.

    By ABW on December 17, 2010 5:42 AM

    The gift of time. - so i an spend it with my loved ones!

    By Brenda Markel on December 17, 2010 5:46 AM

    By KGB on December 17, 2010 5:49 AM

    I would like a 40 foot recreational vehicle to travel the United States.

    By Debbie B on December 17, 2010 5:51 AM

    I would love the idea of a travel gift card so each person can get a special gift when we go on vacation. Souvenirs are so expensive but it would be nice to get something for the children that they can remember the trip by. Also seeing everything is for the children all the time it would be nice for mom and dad to get a special massage or special dinner for just us.

    By Doug J on December 17, 2010 5:54 AM

    Our grandson lives in Ann Arbor, 1,000 miles away so we don't get to see him much. Tickets to MI would be great or even a place to stay when we do get there would be nice. In March, our grandson will be joined by a brother or sister as well!!

    By ben silva on December 17, 2010 5:55 AM


    I'd love my grand children to get travel luggage , boy 12 ,girl 9 . And some good hotel / motel deals .

    By Robert Laggan on December 17, 2010 5:57 AM

    A good gift to give would be one of the new electronic readers. We don't read enough any more.

    By Dianne Boykin on December 17, 2010 6:01 AM

    I would love to have a laptop.
    Merry Christmas to all and God Bless.

    By Karen Elliott on December 17, 2010 6:22 AM

    A great gift for me would be a weekend away at a Best Western...just about anywhere would be great....maybe Niagara Falls ....or Chicago or Kitchener to see my grandkids.....oh....if not that, then an ebook would be great

    By MariaN on December 17, 2010 6:22 AM

    The best travel gifts I can imagine are: good travel companions, a comfortable and safe vehicle, a road less-traveled, and an excellent book that can be read aloud from time-to-time. Yes, I think the journey is as important as the destination, but a comfortable bed and welcoming staff at a clean, smoke-free hotel are tops in my book!! A gift card for any of the above would brighten my day.

    By Grant on December 17, 2010 6:23 AM

    A gps with the Spot tracker would be fabulous! I do alot of back country hiking. So to keep in touch is essential.

    By Angela S. on December 17, 2010 6:23 AM

    I would like a trip for 2 to Hawaii. My husband and I have been married 25years and have never had a honeymoon.

    By Sheila on December 17, 2010 6:24 AM

    I would love a travel voucher to visit friends in Texas!

    By Ryan Ingram on December 17, 2010 6:27 AM

    I would like a nice traveling fishing rod and a guided trip in California at Lake Castaic or Lake Casitas! A kindle for the plane ride would be cool too!

    By Colleen Fitzpatrick on December 17, 2010 6:27 AM

    I think a Kobo electronic reader is a fabulous travel gift. Bring all the books you want on your relaxing vacation all on one slim, light pad. You can carry it in your purse too!

    By angela ryder on December 17, 2010 6:28 AM

    I would love a night hotel stay somewhere for my family and dog where we can enjoy each others company and remember the true meaning of the holidays - being with each other.

    By Linda on December 17, 2010 6:30 AM

    I would like to give my adult daughter her dream vacation - a trip to England and Ireland...land of her heritage.
    For myself I would like a Caribbean cruise in celebration of our 37th anniversary.

    I will Be working this Hioliday Season, But would love to recieve a Nook color ereader. I love to Read

    By Lizzie on December 17, 2010 6:31 AM

    I am giving my 18 year old nephew a couple of gas gift cards, gift card for oil filter/oil change, so that he can travel and stay at a Best Western. He is in college and works part time, so in addition to some gifts he really wants, some practical gift cards will help him out.

    Merry Christmas to all !!!!!

    By Daryl W on December 17, 2010 6:32 AM

    An iPad would be the best gift because then I could use the WorldMate Application & book reader

    I would love a Tom Tom high end GPS

    By NIck Alexanders on December 17, 2010 6:33 AM

    I would love to be able to get up to 25% discount gift certificates on most any stay at Best Western and maybe a 20% discount on some airfares for a combined package.
    I stay mostly at Best Western when I can and and I would like to be able to also offer this to my friends through loaning them this discount. This would be an awesome gift as I live so far away from most of them and it would make it easier form to come and visit. I mostly go visit them so this way they could not say they can't come and visit my family here.

    Thks and a Merry Xmas to All

    By tim on December 17, 2010 6:36 AM

    Ipad so when I'm laying in my cozy bestwestern bed I can keep up with things

    By Janella on December 17, 2010 6:38 AM

    "Teflon" traveling clothes that can be rinsed off as you take a shower so you don't have to lug suitcases into the hotel each night of an extended road trip.

    A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

    By Francine on December 17, 2010 6:38 AM

    By Judy Hurst on December 17, 2010 6:41 AM

    As we get older it seems we spend less and less time with our adult children. I have wanted to take our 3 adult children and grandchildren on a great vacation. My husband and I talk about it year after year but another expense always comes up. Maybe a cruise, or a trip to Disney ,or to my brother's in beautiful British Columbia. Wouldn't that be a great Christmas gift?

    By Joanna on December 17, 2010 6:41 AM

    An airline travel voucher to give or receive and a Best Western gift card to give or receive.

    By Linda Levenhagen on December 17, 2010 6:41 AM

    I'd like a gps that also functions as a good geocacher. I could use the unit in the car to keep from getting lost and then have the fun of finding cache's in sites around the country.

    By Laurie on December 17, 2010 6:45 AM

    I'd love to receive a roundtrip ticket to NYC. It's one of the most wonderful spots to be in to get in the Christmas mood! It doesn't hurt that my daughter lives there either!

    By Barry on December 17, 2010 6:45 AM

    Merry Christmas to all. No I have my two front teeth. A gift certificate would make more sense to send.

    By Margaret Edler on December 17, 2010 6:45 AM

    I would like receiving a Gift Card so I could visit my children. We try to visit around the holidays. Being on a fixed income makes travel a little more difficult with the economy the way it is.

    Hope everyone has a happy & safe hoilday.

    By Deidre Wood on December 17, 2010 6:45 AM

    I would love a trip to Greece. But most importantly i want a happy holiday with family.

    By Barry on December 17, 2010 6:47 AM

    Merry Christmas to all. No I have my two front teeth. A gift certificate would make more sense to send.

    By Cynthia on December 17, 2010 6:47 AM

    I would like to give each of my 3 kids (10, 12 & 14) the chance to visit their great granddad (Pap Pap) in Florida. It would be wonderful for them to spend time with him and learn first hand our family history.

    By Ma on December 17, 2010 6:48 AM

    I got my boyfriend luggage to replace his ratty old duffel bag that he uses when traveling and some 3 oz liquids for carry-on. I would love an Ipad or a trip to somewhere warm.

    By Jason Russell on December 17, 2010 6:49 AM

    We have a family with 6 children, so we need 2 motel rooms when ever we travel. It would be nice to have a Best Western Travel Card to be able to stay the night at a Best Western Hotel

    By Rich S on December 17, 2010 6:50 AM

    I'd like a GPS for vehicle to help navigate in new locations. One that you can remove and use walking would be great.

    By Robert Wilmot on December 17, 2010 6:50 AM

    Gift Cards are great for travelers and help family and friends get together.

    By Wendy on December 17, 2010 6:51 AM

    I would love to get tickets to the Phantom of the Opera in NYC to take my kids there. They've never been to NYC and I want to show them the magic of the city and to the best broadway show that I've ever seen!

    By Melissa Rhine on December 17, 2010 6:53 AM

    I think the it would be great if I had a rich uncle or aunt and they sent me and my family on a world cruise with enough money to be able to pay all our bills while we were gone. Three months of heaven.

    By Oceansong on December 17, 2010 6:54 AM

    An iPad to keep in touch with those who are not near us this holiday season.

    By Jennifer Donovan on December 17, 2010 6:54 AM

    My best travel gift would be books, since I am always getting stuck in airports and on planes, finishing the book I brought with me, and having to buy an incredibly expensive paperback somewhere.

    By Linda on December 17, 2010 6:57 AM

    I would like a spinner carry-on and a gift certificate for air travel.

    By Diane Tuciker on December 17, 2010 7:01 AM

    I would like an ipod or gps or gift cards. Just about anything would be a nice surprise, maybe a trip for 2 to Rome....

    By Kathleen on December 17, 2010 7:01 AM

    I'd like points to be able to stay in BW Hotels, our very fav. places to stay while traveling for the rest of our lives (and if not that long, how about for a few years?).

    Thanks a ton for making this a possible dream come true,
    Kathleen & Michael

    I would love to go visit my one son in Barcelona, whom won't be able to come home for the Christmas Holidays. I have 3 beautiful children, 2 gorgeous grand daughters, and the most amazing husband. This will be our very first year ever that we won't all be together during the holidays. Besides wanting to go see him, we are all just wanting good health and happiness for the following years ahead, and hope everyone feels the love we have to give and offer. Merry Christmas !!

    By Grace W on December 17, 2010 7:02 AM

    I would love to win a trip to Walt Disney World/Epcot for my husband and myself with my daughter's family - including all three grandchildren would be a fantastic way to spend Christmas and or New Year's.

    A Kindle would be a good addition so grandma (me) could read stories to the three girls.

    By Al E. on December 17, 2010 7:02 AM

    I would love to receive a fishing trip to Alaska.

    By Ron Walker on December 17, 2010 7:02 AM

    I think a travel gift card - especially a Best Western gift card - would be the best gift to give or receive. A gift card gives the flexibility to travel when and where you want, and expense is most often the barrier to the travel we want to do. An upgrade from a flea bag motel to a BW would make a big difference.

    By Kathleen on December 17, 2010 7:03 AM

    I'd like points to be able to stay in BW Hotels, our very fav. places to stay while traveling for the rest of our lives (and if not that long, how about for a few years?).

    Thanks a ton for making this a possible dream come true,
    Kathleen & Michael

    By Kenneth Yung on December 17, 2010 7:03 AM

    I wish to get a 2 free nights stay voucher from BW and spend time with my family.

    By Lawson Tremellen on December 17, 2010 7:04 AM

    I would really like to receive an e-reader so that there is always a good book with us whenever and wherever travel we travel. A good book takes away the tedium of flying and is there to add to the enjoyment of a comfortable hotel room.

    By A Donovan on December 17, 2010 7:04 AM

    A GPS for road trips and a blue tooth to keep driving safe!

    By Amy on December 17, 2010 7:04 AM

    We would love to receive a matching set of luggage. Or just gift cards related to travel as I am in graduate school and we have no extra money.

    By Dennis on December 17, 2010 7:05 AM

    A certificate for travel so that my wife and I can celebrate our 30th anniversary next year with a trip.

    By Scott Ferguson on December 17, 2010 7:05 AM

    I would love to take my daughters to a pop concert of their choice - IE: Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake. My wife and I would definitely tag along for the ride and perhaps we'd spent the weekend enjoying one of the Great Best Western's available around the world!

    By Diane Stephens on December 17, 2010 7:06 AM

    I want a free night's stay at the Best Western of my choice in the United States.

    By Nancy on December 17, 2010 7:08 AM

    Best Western card is great to have and I can send it to my son as a x'mas gift.

    By Lawson Tremellen on December 17, 2010 7:13 AM

    I would really like to receive an e-reader so that there is always a good book with us whenever and wherever travel we travel.

    By Don Hennion on December 17, 2010 7:14 AM

    I would like a BW gift card to use while on a return trip to the BW in Lido, Italy. A recent visit with friends was outstanding!! A GPS to use exploring the rest of Italy would be nice.

    By Robert Hansford on December 17, 2010 7:17 AM

    I would love to receive a trip to Disney World in Florida. We have
    never visited Florida and would love to do that
    Thanks

    By Jen Engh on December 17, 2010 7:18 AM

    I will be giving my neice a baby doll!

    By Candace Mullins on December 17, 2010 7:18 AM

    I would love to get a Best Western gift card...then we could take our new baby on her first trip and not worry about travel expenses!!! Also a great gift to have while traveling is an Ipod and a smartphone!

    By William Kremer on December 17, 2010 7:18 AM

    I'd love to get free nights at BW, anywhere in the U.S.

    By donna on December 17, 2010 7:19 AM

    By Ed Livezey on December 17, 2010 7:21 AM

    A Best Western card that i could use on a planned North Western driving trip

    By Sharmela Garcia-Martin on December 17, 2010 7:23 AM

    I would love to fundraise enough money to help people in need who are struggling with these difficult and trying times both in the United States and in other countries. My husband and I are not working right now but it is better to give to others than want something for myself. Happy Holidays to everyone and a wonderful New Year!

    By Sue Ohnemus on December 17, 2010 7:23 AM

    I would love to be able to visit my 88 year old father and rest of the family for Christmas.

    I would love to get a ticket to Italy to spend New Years Day in Rome.

    By Terry Bisset on December 17, 2010 7:25 AM

    I would love an I Pad, or an Mac laptop.

    By fschleicher on December 17, 2010 7:27 AM

    An I-pad and supply of books to read while flying or waiting in airports and then to use in keeping up with e-mails while on the go.

    By Gary M on December 17, 2010 7:28 AM

    The best travel gift for me is having my wife come along with me. She keeps me calm when issues arise and jus generally makes my travelling more comfortable and fun. So I got my Christmas present early when she said she could accopmany on a business trip this winter.

    By Mark Harman on December 17, 2010 7:30 AM

    I think an IPad would be great holiday travel gift. It has GPS so you won't get lost, plenty of apps to keep you entertained, and Wifi to stay connected.

    By Donna Schmidt on December 17, 2010 7:31 AM

    We are taking our adult children to Mexico this year for Christmas, That is there Christmas wish and we granted it......Then off to the Best western Hotel in Scottsdale for the Barrett Jackson Auction in January...Nice....

    By David Sargent on December 17, 2010 7:32 AM

    I will give travel clothing gift cards and would love to receive an airline gift card. I would plan a fall trip to New England to see teh colors and consume gallons of clam chowder.

    By Pat Conway on December 17, 2010 7:33 AM

    I would love to get a free night (or two), at Best Western. I love the Best Western chain, and want to stay there again on my next trip in Jan.

    By Laurie on December 17, 2010 7:34 AM

    I would love Best Western gift cards to do some traveling next year. It will be our 30 year wedding anniversary next year and we would like to do something special. We always stay at Best Western and are never disappointed.

    By Janie on December 17, 2010 7:34 AM

    Well, for auto travel a gps...
    But at age 60, I think I would like to go on a super-exciting trip....to Africa to see wildlife and pyramids.
    Or the Northern Lights in Iceland
    I'm ready!

    By Brent W on December 17, 2010 7:34 AM

    I'm just starting to do a lot of travel and am always pulling out my laptop when I want to listen to music or make a skype call.
    What would be more convenient would be an ipod touch. Plus think of all those games that would keep me occupied while waiting on flight transfers. :)
    Happy Holidays!!!

    By Jim on December 17, 2010 7:37 AM

    I would love any kind of E book reader for traveling. It would save space and entertain while waiting for your plane.

    By GR on December 17, 2010 7:37 AM

    I like gift cards in various amounts from all vendors as they are the easiest to work with!

    By leo uebele on December 17, 2010 7:38 AM

    I would enjoy an Ipad for using at airports.
    i travel and it would relieve the boredom.

    By Murray Gratto on December 17, 2010 7:45 AM

    A Kindle or Barnes & Noble Reader for those times when you are waiting or travelling. You could read your favorite book or any magazine that you subscibe to on your reader. They are thin enough to fit into any carry-on luggage and not as clumbersome as a laptop computer.

    A "Reader" is my choice for a travel gift!

    By Stefan on December 17, 2010 7:46 AM

    Love to have an iphone or ipad for keeping in touch while in the airport

    By Kaz on December 17, 2010 7:47 AM

    A collapsible stroller, Graco Spree Travel System for my niece who is having a baby this month for their first family travel.

    I would love to have a travel bag for cosmetics.

    By Neil Dabb on December 17, 2010 7:49 AM

    I prefer to travel after the holidays are over and would like to go any where warm. Hawaii, southern California,

    By RB on December 17, 2010 7:51 AM

    My favourite gift is having the ability to make life better for someone else. This year I am already supplying my sister with Best Western Travel cards so she has a place to stay while she attends a training course. The additional travel card would make the package complete for the entire course; allowing her an opportunity to develop herself and move back from Europe to Canada to be with her family and qualify for employment..

    By JohnZ on December 17, 2010 7:57 AM

    Like a tablet pc for traveling.

    By Carolyn on December 17, 2010 8:00 AM

    I wish that my ENTIRE FAMILY could get together in one location for at least three days and just relax. The family is in FL, PA and GA. It would be wonderful to get together not for a funeral, but just to get together and stay, of course, at a Best Western.

    By Michele on December 17, 2010 8:00 AM

    I would love to get a GPS because I will be traveling for my job next year and don't want to get lost!!

    By SharonM on December 17, 2010 8:03 AM

    I would love a trip to Cuba or Mexico. I just had knee surgery and could use a relaxing time on a beach soaking up the sun.

    By BevA on December 17, 2010 8:08 AM

    I'd love and IPad for travel. It's compact and light so it's easy to carry without a seperate computer case, and they connect quickly and easily to wifi for use at airports. Additonally, you can listen to music or download various apps to use for business or pleasure on your trip.

    By Irwint on December 17, 2010 8:09 AM

    Adult Christmas weekend in
    Walt Disney World.
    nice getaway from working world

    By Ronnie W on December 17, 2010 8:09 AM

    I would like a trip to Disney World for my Grandkids and my wife so that we can get them all together. They live in different part of the country and they only get to see each other when we can get them. Which is every two are three years.

    By Karen E. on December 17, 2010 8:11 AM

    The best travel gifts to give, particularly to someone in need, are gas cards. Family should be together at Christmas and the economy is making it tough for some this year.

    By Eduardo Muniz on December 17, 2010 8:13 AM

    I am going to New York in May so airline tickets would be Great.

    By laura passek on December 17, 2010 8:13 AM

    I would love to have a voucher to take my family back to where my parents grew up and show my son his grandparents area they lived in Ontario Vermillion bay, but one day we will get their. I would just love to have family together for xmas and be thankfull we are all still healthy.

    By Joe B on December 17, 2010 8:15 AM

    I would like a two week vacation to Australia for my wife and I plus an iPad to while away the travel time.

    By Alain AMBAMANI on December 17, 2010 8:15 AM

    I would love to get together with my family with a trip to any Country in Africa or Europe. My wife, Kid and I will appreciate it going somewhere for the new year.

    By Susan Kimsey on December 17, 2010 8:16 AM

    I will get the best Christmas this year. My four sons live a couple of states away, now that I've relocated to help elderly parents. They are all coming down for Christmas, along with my two wonderful daughter-in-laws, and my brand new grandson, first grandchild and great-grandchild on my side of the family. The best gift of all is the laughter of a baby, and the best things in life are not things, but moments
    Have a blessed and joyful Christmas.

    By Annie DW on December 17, 2010 8:18 AM

    An unlocked IPhone one a super light carry on would be brilliant!

    An Ipad or Garmin Zumo gps would be nice.

    By Bev Knight on December 17, 2010 8:23 AM

    By JOHN L GATZ on December 17, 2010 8:24 AM

    If I were selected, my first choice would be a Best Western travel card.

    By Suzy Nicholson on December 17, 2010 8:25 AM

    Since this is a contest, I guess I will think of myself.. Would love to go somewhere warm - like on a cruise and or a spa/where it's warm...Otherwise I'd wish for all the left behind dogs to have warm homes, and no more abuse ! Thank you ...

    By christie twaites on December 17, 2010 8:26 AM

    a GPX most definitely. we have found alot of places with it, that we probably would not have.

    By Dan Murphy on December 17, 2010 8:28 AM

    For all our children to return home for the Holidays

    By Patrick H. carden on December 17, 2010 8:28 AM

    Blessings for our Military.The hard times they endure and what they sacrifice to keep us safe and free. So when we are all bundled up and cozy in our homes for the holidays, take a minute of your time to reflect on that...
    PROUD MILITARY DAD...... Oh yea i'd like an i-pad please.

    By KIM SMALL on December 17, 2010 8:29 AM

    I will be receiving the best possible travel gift of all. My son is going to be home for x-mas from Iraq. I thank God for giving me this gift when there are so many who wont have this privilege.

    By Ang eoods on December 17, 2010 8:31 AM

    love a best western gift card, iPhone or iPad

    By Dana T on December 17, 2010 8:31 AM

    Travel and discovery go hand in hand. My family depends on Best Western to provied us with a comfortable and safe place to stay while we discover the wonders of the world.
    Ideal travel giftsfor us are iPhone, ereaders, iPads, blankies, and multi-language translaters.

    By Brandee on December 17, 2010 8:32 AM

    For the car - on a budget, a plug- in heated blanket; for a splurge- an IPhone.

    For a plane - on a budget, a blow up pillow/ head rest; for a splurge- sound blocking headphones.

    By Rebecca Smith on December 17, 2010 8:32 AM

    Spa weekend getaway!

    By Chuck Rinzler on December 17, 2010 8:32 AM

    My favoite holiday gift this year would be an electronic book reader. It would help me pass the time while staying in a Best Western.

    By susan c on December 17, 2010 8:33 AM

    I am down to my last $20.00 Best Western Gift Card so of course more gift cards for Christmas would be ideal. I would also like a 'professional packer' for each trip that I take to pack ALL the things I need for a week in one carry on bag.

    Happy 2011 everyone!!!!

    By Sandy on December 17, 2010 8:33 AM

    I would love a trip to Belize to visit my brother and sister-in-law, for my husband, Mom and I.

    By kami Stevens on December 17, 2010 8:37 AM

    My husband gave me a Kindle. It is the best gift for travel hands down. Whether you are the passenger, or the drive, (it can read out loud to you), or whatever. In a car plane, train, waiting at the Dr. Office, etc. etc. It is the best gift for traveling anywhere!

    By Cary Ediger on December 17, 2010 8:38 AM

    We are' the people who have everything' and that makes us hard to buy for , but we love to travel, especially on our motorcycle, and are hoping to get more accessories for some trips. Hotel accomodations are a nice touch.

    By Alvena on December 17, 2010 8:43 AM

    The ideal travel gift I would use is an IPad, so easy to carry, stay connected to friends and family and great entertainment apps.

    By David O'Neal on December 17, 2010 8:44 AM

    Travel gift cards are always greatly appreciated. That is what I am hoping to receive from Santa this year!

    By CAC on December 17, 2010 8:44 AM

    My suitcase is a yellow hard-sided Samsonite from the 70's. Could use a new suitcase- even one with wheels that I used to laugh at. My late husband and I planned to travel in retirement. Although he only got one week, I hope to fulfill our dreams.

    By Marc C on December 17, 2010 8:45 AM

    Dito, love to motorcycle. Will be going to southern Arkansa this spring. Hotel rooms sure would come in handy.

    I would love to get an ipad as it looks like a lot of fun for traveling.

    By Murray G on December 17, 2010 9:02 AM

    A Kindle, or Barnes & Noble, or other type of "Reader" for those times when you are waiting at the airport, train station, etc., or when travelling and the times are boring (like an overseas flight).

    You could read a favorite book, or a magazine, etc. that you subscibe to that is uploaded onto your "reader". They are thin enough and have hardley any weight so it could easily fit into any carry-on luggage, a backpack, large purse, etc. and they are not as heavy or clumbersome as a laptop or notebook computer.

    A "Reader" is my choice for a travel gift!

    By Stacy Hadley on December 17, 2010 9:03 AM

    I would love an IPhone this year.

    By Bill on December 17, 2010 9:03 AM

    A great holiday travel gift would be airline tickets or voucher to help us visit our grandchildren on the other side of Canada.

    By Marj Fauvel on December 17, 2010 9:10 AM

    I would really love to have a gift card to stay in a Best Western so I could afford to travel somewhere. Airline tickets, cruise tickets or anything would be a real boon this Christmas. Thanks.

    By Gord Turner on December 17, 2010 9:14 AM

    I think a first-class golf-travel bag would be the best gift for me. Right now the bag I'm using needs to be taped


    By Mary Ann on December 17, 2010 9:15 AM

    It would be nice to win a ticket for two on our next anniversary in 2011

    By Steph on December 17, 2010 9:15 AM

    A Kindle or iPad would be great, something to keep you entertained while you are on the plane (or waiting in the airpot) and it is small, lightweight and easy to take with you.

    A GPS would be great; also Best Western travel gift cards or vouchers to use while on travel (Disney World, Hawaii, etc.).

    By David Cheung on December 17, 2010 9:15 AM

    The best gift would be airline miles to take me to a new destination or an iPad to keep me occupied at the airport!

    By chuck seyler on December 17, 2010 9:16 AM

    would love a trip to Venice, Italy, to see it before it sinks into the sea.

    By Karen on December 17, 2010 9:17 AM

    A GPS is a travel must these days! I don't leave for a trip without mine!

    By Mary Ann P on December 17, 2010 9:18 AM

    I'll take a two night or a ticket for our next anniversary on 2011

    By Cara on December 17, 2010 9:19 AM

    I would love to be able to give my family a trip to Hawaii! That would be the ultimate travel gift. They will have to settle for smaller travel gifts such as an overnight to see family in Southern California. Happy Holidays!

    By Beverly Ketlo on December 17, 2010 9:21 AM

    I wish to see the bright lights of Las Vegas.

    By Carole on December 17, 2010 9:21 AM

    My favorite is gift cards....
    BW, Starbucks,....................
    but I wouldn't mind a cruise after having spent a very stressful 6 weeks with family health issues.

    By Jan Eastman on December 17, 2010 9:24 AM

    I've seen advertising for those vests with all the pockets...they say you can pack all kinds of stuff for air travel into the pockets and avoid checking luggage. I wonder how well they would really work, but they do look fun!

    By Colleen on December 17, 2010 9:24 AM

    Travel....Travel....Travel!!!!

    By Wes Kohlman on December 17, 2010 9:27 AM

    I am giving ave my sons a GPS so they can find directions from the Airport in Phoenix to a condo we rent in Fountain Hills, AZ. Also gave them travel size toiletries for their flights should they decide to come..
    The travel cards, well we use those when we drive from Canada to Phoenix and back. I think the travel cards make great gifts - for ourselves or for those traveling. We are blessed to be able to travel and use them! A lot of folks cannot travel anymore.
    Merry Christmas to you all!

    By Deanna Schultz on December 17, 2010 9:27 AM

    I dream of a trip to Universal studio for my 2 kids who love Harry Potter!!!!

    By Kim on December 17, 2010 9:27 AM

    I'd love a gift of a trip somewhere for me and my wife, a week away from regular life so we can reconnect.....PLEASE!

    By Chris Almon on December 17, 2010 9:28 AM

    Traveling with an I-Pad, I-Pod or Blackberry that has internet access and a GPS function is incredibly handy for direction challenged people like me! A great gift!!

    I'd love to win 2 airline tickets to fly my sister, Barbara Young, from Broken Arrow, OK to California to visit my family. She has been on the Oklahoma Liver Transplant waiting list for 2 years and 8 months. With a caregiver, I am confident she can make the journey. Her profile is on the National Foundation for Transplants website. We remain faithful she will recieve a priceless organ donation. Merry Christmas to all!

She was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago but still wants to see the world and is never down about her illness.

    A gift card is the best travel companion.

    By Don and Melinda on December 17, 2010 11:36 AM

    As frequent travelers we enjoy gifts that make our road trips more fun and less costly. Gift cards for restaurants or gasoline would be great. An e-book reader like a Kindle would also be nice. Maybe best of all might be a free night at a BW near a national park of our choice!

    By MGrundmeier on December 17, 2010 11:38 AM

    I would love an I Phone for the GPS features.

    By Kathi Foster on December 17, 2010 11:39 AM

    The best gifts come from the Heart, I recieved some really great gifts for my birthday but the ones I treasure the most are the two birthday cards my daughters made by hand. Merry x-mas to all.


    By Nanette Kemp on December 17, 2010 11:58 AM

    I would love to be able to provide my girls with a trip to Hershey, PA using a gift card for a stay at Best Western. My two daughters and my neice who is under foster care has been wanting to go on a trip like this for some time but as a single mother it's hard. We recently planned a local trip and stayed at a Best Western in Rockford, IL. Unfortunately the room was not up to the usual Best Western standards as the room had bugs and wasn't clean. Staff apoplogized but we would love to get a do over with a Best Western vacation to Hershey, PA and see how nice Best Western really is!

    By Holly Allison-Kay on December 17, 2010 12:02 PM

    I would love world peace and good health for all...wouldn't that be a wonderful gift! I am truly blessed to have a loving husband and triplet daughters. My best gift is an evening when we can all cuddle up together and watch a family movie...not much to some, but everything to me. Perhaps movie rental gift cards? or resatuarant gift cards for an opportunity to have all of us share a meal out together! God bless all of you during this blessed season.

    By Debbie Opdahl on December 17, 2010 12:05 PM

    My travel wish was to have our son come home for Christmas. He has not been home for the Holidays for 4 years. So this year I decided it was time for him to come home. So I paid for tickets for him and his girlfriend to come home. This is the best money I have ever spent. Family is so much more important than me planning where I want to go on vacation.

    By Jim Silvers on December 17, 2010 12:08 PM

    I would like to have the card to give it to my daughter and her boyfriend so they could enjoy a couple of days way from the San Fernando Velley (who wouldn't) as things are knd of tight these days.

    By Barb R. on December 17, 2010 12:13 PM

    By Joy on December 17, 2010 12:25 PM

    A couple of years ago we went to Las Vegas. I hated it and said I would never go there again. Well, we had to go again and it was somewhat better. However, I would like to stay in a "nice" room next time and maybe a private car to go from casino to casino. The traffic is horrendous. Thank you.

    By Marcia on December 17, 2010 12:26 PM

    I would love to give my family a vacation (with me of course). Disneyland or a Cruise.
    An Ipod touch for all three would be nice to pass the time waiting for planes, on the plane etc.

    By Bob Thomas on December 17, 2010 12:31 PM

    Probably just a nice get away for us.Wife's in the service and I know she could use a break.Quite sure Best Western would figure into the picture.

    By Robert on December 17, 2010 12:34 PM

    Peace for a friend that has cancer

    By Cathy M on December 17, 2010 12:41 PM

    I would use the travel card to bring my family together. It has been too many years that we sat around the tree. Family is the best gift one could receive. Merry Christmas to all!!!

    An iPad

    By Leslie on December 17, 2010 1:03 PM

    My husband gave me a set of luggage for our first anniversary, 20 years ago. That luggage has been many, many places. Now the wheels stick, the zipper is very hard to zip and the handle is falling apart!

    I would love a new set of luggage - one that has bags that stack on each other so I don't have to "juggle" my way through airports and hotel lobbys. Then I can spend another 20 years on the road with my one and only!

    By Allane on December 17, 2010 1:12 PM

    The perfect present would be the ability to retire comfortably enough to enjoy travel, family, and friends with my wonderful husband!

    By Scott on December 17, 2010 1:17 PM

    I am hoping to pull of that trip to Hawaii the wife has always wanted.

    By Lilian on December 17, 2010 1:22 PM

    An iPhone would be awesome to keep in touch, camera ready and for movies/music.

    By Dave on December 17, 2010 1:26 PM

    The perfect gift would be travel cards for all of the family members for a Disney vacation. The grandkids and the older kids would love to all have fun together.

    By Janice Asad on December 17, 2010 1:27 PM

    The best travel gift I could have would be some quality time with my husband to renew our vows. God Bless you all.

    The best gift I could receive is continued health for my Husband of 50 years who has had cancer and a visit from our Son and his family whom we haven't seen for 7 years.

    By Mindy Spiridon on December 17, 2010 1:33 PM

    I really, really want to go to Disney World with my family so I'd love to receive anything that would help us get there (plane tickets, a travel voucher, hotel gift card, etc.). I'm crossing my fingers that Santa knows that I've been good this year. :)

    By Ira Barbe on December 17, 2010 1:43 PM

    The best travel gift to give or receive is a gift card which can be used for any purpose...lodging, dining, rental car, flight, whatever. I know that I would be very glad to receive such a gift, and I hope that a recipient would be happy to receive such a gift from me.

    By Thea Fermin on December 18, 2010 1:47 AM

    It would be out of this world to receive tons and tons of letters with positive and encouraging words so I can heal, be strong and go on having a great life with my 3 daughters, my husband, my five dogs and my cat!!!

    By Cliff McPherson on December 18, 2010 3:18 AM

    A couple of plane tickets to any place in the US would be a great start!

    By Diane Gallant on December 18, 2010 4:20 AM

    I would like an i phone

    By Julia on December 18, 2010 4:39 AM

    A nice carribean holiday or a cruise would be nice.

    By Tanya H on December 18, 2010 4:57 AM

    My husband and I are so blessed already. If I could have anything more, it would be for he and I and all our kids and grandkids to take a vacation together somewhere warm in February. It would give us a break from the cold and allow us to spend time together.

    By Heidi on December 18, 2010 5:23 AM

    I'd love to receive a new iphone with face-time ability.

    By Tricia on December 18, 2010 5:47 AM

    I would love to take a trip away from the everyday of work & school.

    By Mary Lou Corrigan on December 18, 2010 6:01 AM

    I think the best wish or gift I can give to my family is the gift of time spent enjoying each others company. It will start the New Year out positive, reminding us how important we are to each other.

    By Lorrie on December 20, 2010 8:27 AM

    I give gift cards so they can go on a holiday and decide where they would like to travel.

    By Natasha on December 20, 2010 8:39 AM

    My husband and I would like money for our upcoming trip to France this spring.

    By Marlene Elder on December 20, 2010 8:40 AM

    a portable reading light because hotel lighting is often less than adequate

    By Madalyn on December 20, 2010 8:45 AM

    We received a Garmin GPS 2 Christmases ago and we love it. We have since upgraded it and gifted relatives the same.

    By Brent Reid on December 20, 2010 8:46 AM

    Once less hungry child

    By Wilhelmina on December 20, 2010 8:59 AM

    The best gift of all for Christmas is GOOD HEALTH.
    Thank the Lord and Santa for that one.

    By kathleen m on December 20, 2010 9:01 AM

    i would like a bigger purse- one big enough to keep a days worth of supplies and clothes in, just in case. seems more and more people are getting stuck at airports overnight and are not prepared. my husband would like and e-reader. the kids want new video games for their dsi- need to keep them from getting bored too!

    By Dennis W.L. on December 20, 2010 9:07 AM

    We visit family and would use a Best Western Travel Card.
    Cheers.

    By Jack on December 20, 2010 9:09 AM

    I would love to give my wife a trip to Paris to celebrate her 70th birthday next spring.

    By Russell Bellerose on December 20, 2010 9:15 AM

    While staying at my favorite Best Western property in St. Thomas I would love to receive gift certificates to the great New Years Eve dinner they always put on!

    By Mary on December 20, 2010 9:16 AM

    I'm giving Kindles this year

    By Emily on December 20, 2010 9:17 AM

    I am getting my husband the book Watch It Made in the U.S.A.: A Visitor's Guide to the Best Factory Tours and Company Museums by Karen Axelrod and Bruce Brumberg. We saw this book when we went to Kenosha, WI last year and took a Jelly Belly factory tour. It was a great trip, and now we can plan other fun trips for the family!

    By CJ on December 20, 2010 9:19 AM

    I would like to give and receive a few nights up to two weeks in a hotel. My wife and I are pastors and our kids usually get short changed on the holidays as we have services. We therefore take unusual vacations sometimes taking them out of school and taking along work for them to do.

    By Kimberly Simon on December 20, 2010 9:23 AM

    I would love for. My family to be healthy and full of love for the upcoming year

    By Michele McGuirl on December 20, 2010 9:23 AM

    the best travel gift are tire chains - once you own them, you never seem to need them!

    By Sheila on December 20, 2010 9:27 AM

    I would love a vacation with all my children and some times a little get away is great however when traveling I would enjoy an i-pad so I would be able to keep connected with my travel plans such as hotel reserveration, car rental, flight information as well as contacting friends and family while waiting in airports etc. It would also be a means of knowing what type of weather is ahead of me.
    However I know I am getting what I want for Christmas, A house full of family and friends.

    By Tracy Kintzel on December 20, 2010 9:29 AM

    I would love a Hawaiin Island cruise for 2! That would be most fabulous!

    By Alan on December 20, 2010 9:29 AM

    I have my wife and 3 kids, so, how about a little world peace.

    By Kameron on December 20, 2010 9:34 AM

    I'd like to get my guy a GPS, as he is "directionally challenged".

    By Nathalie H. on December 20, 2010 9:35 AM

    I would love a GPS you never know when your going to need it, either for directions to family and friends or just information to the nearest services station.

    By KC on December 20, 2010 9:37 AM

    I would love a DisneyWorld vacation for our "soon-to-be" family.

    By Brian S. on December 20, 2010 9:38 AM

    Ipads are what I'm giving this year

    By Carrie Warlaumont on December 20, 2010 9:46 AM

    I think a great travel gift to give would be an i-pad. Useful in the airport while on layovers.....useful for getting directions in whatever city or country you're in.....useful for finding good places to see or dine at your destination. Plus, you can watch movies in your own language, read books, listen to music....
    Yep. That is the perfect gift to give a traveler, I think. Well, that and an upgraded ticked to first class!

    By Wendy on December 20, 2010 9:48 AM

    My brothers and sisters are all over the country - I would love to be able to see them. Either a ticket to them or rooms to see all seven of them would be awesome. Merry Christmas!

    By A McDougall on December 20, 2010 9:48 AM

    The best gift you can give or recieve is the love of another. 2nd would be friendship. 3rd would be a electronic reader.

    By Jim C on December 20, 2010 9:50 AM

    Need a Kindle. Bored!!!

    By Halina on December 20, 2010 9:52 AM

    My family travels a lot and we also like to read a lot so that means taking all sorts of books with us and with the new weight and size restrictions on the airlines an electronic reader is great. You can download a ton of books and they weigh almost nothing. I wish I had invented this but alas I did not so have to buy one! Would love to get one!

    By Nancy Morrell on December 20, 2010 9:52 AM

    Great travel gifts would include a GPS, hotel gift certificates and lovely carry on luggage.

    By Karen B on December 20, 2010 9:55 AM

    I absolutely hands down love to read a book on the plane! For my hubby I would give the new Tom Clancy book!

    By Monica Cowan on December 20, 2010 9:55 AM

    My family and I would love to have some colorful hard shell suitcases, as our old soft luggage keeps ripping apart with all the tear and wear at airports.

    By debi ferguson on December 20, 2010 9:58 AM

    A nice warm vacation for two to Figi in February when cold and snow get a little old here in Montana!

    By Mary Rogers on December 20, 2010 10:01 AM

    Hands down, its' gotta be a GPS but some gas gift cards would be nice as well!

    By Mary LeClair on December 20, 2010 10:06 AM

    I would love to take my daughters to Hawaii as a girls get-away!

    By Jen on December 20, 2010 10:27 AM

    I love to give travel-related books such as Bill Bryson's books about traveling throughout Australia, the UK, and the States. This year, I'm planning to give my hiker friends "A Walk in the Woods" and some camping gear. Fun and useful gifts!

    By Mary Myers-Gilman on December 20, 2010 10:35 AM

    I would love gas cards and hotel gift certificates so I can take my granddaughter on spur of the moment travel adventures. She's been dying to take the train to NYC to see the sights....maybe this year?

    By Patty Morrison on December 20, 2010 10:40 AM

    For Christmas I would like and e-book and heating pad, to enjoy the cold winter days in style.

    By Janet on December 20, 2010 10:57 AM

    I would love to take my husband to the East Coast to visit the Liberty bell, and other History.

    By cas on December 20, 2010 11:02 AM

    GPS is a great travel gift. It takes the stress out of visiting a new location.

    By ru on December 20, 2010 11:10 AM

    hmm the best travel gifts are suitcases that are unique for easy retrieval when one is tired and all the bags look similar

    By marvin on December 20, 2010 11:11 AM

    PS3 for the whole family

    By Steve A on December 20, 2010 11:13 AM

    A gift that most travellers would appreciate is a Sudoku puzzle book. Solving the puzzles is a great way to pass time travelling or waiting (especially at the airports). You stay alert and keep your mind sharp. Put a book in each Christmas stocking and don't forget to include a pen!

    By Karen on December 20, 2010 11:23 AM

    I would love airline tickets for our family to some place warm this winter

    By DJS on December 20, 2010 11:23 AM

    Would love to visit NYC with my (2) daughters and go to a couple Broadway shows. It's always been a dream of ours!

    By djs on December 20, 2010 11:27 AM

    The best holiday gift would be a gift certificate for Best Western in order to travel to a dream location with my two (2) daughters, like NYC to take in a couple Broadway shows. That's one of our dreams!

    By Ginny on December 20, 2010 11:35 AM

    This has been a very stressful year with the economy. I would like to take my family away for a couple days to relax and enjoy each other.

    Merry Christmas!

    By John Lyons on December 20, 2010 12:02 PM

    A GPS would be a NICE gift!

    By H Jailos on December 20, 2010 12:34 PM

    A cruise to the southern Caribbean would be a nice gift.

    By shana on December 20, 2010 12:49 PM

    I would like to be sitting in a cabin at the snow be a warm fire chilling

    By Rita Hagar on December 20, 2010 12:49 PM

    More time at the hotel pool. It's a super place to relax.

    By BP on December 20, 2010 12:53 PM

    I would love to get a travel package to take my family out somewhere fun to have some good family bonding time.

    By Joan Rigby on December 20, 2010 1:37 PM

    A great gift for myself would be a Weii with a exercise type game.

    By Joan Rigby on December 20, 2010 1:41 PM

    My one and only try just came back saying that I had tried to many times? What's up?

    By lauren g on December 20, 2010 1:42 PM

    My best travel gift would be a trip with my new husband who has never traveled out of the state where we live. So to take the car and visit my 80 year old parents in NY while showing him how wonderful and scenic this country is would be the best gift ever. Than you for this awesome opportunity.

    By leann f on December 20, 2010 2:35 PM

    By heather vedova on December 20, 2010 2:39 PM

    By Bernie Savoie on December 20, 2010 2:56 PM

    I'd love to give my wife the gift of travel to a nice golf destination (hopefully with a Best Western nearby) this winter as she is celebrating a very special birthday. I of course would accompany her which would be my gift.

    By Bing on December 20, 2010 3:32 PM

    iPAD

    By Don Sankey on December 20, 2010 3:36 PM

    My wife and I would like to have a small lap top to take on our travels.

    Thanks

    By Catherine on December 20, 2010 4:42 PM

    I would love to get several gift cards for the Best Western in Millwaukee for when I go to my Bead and Button convention in June. I love doing beaded jewerly and I go to this convention every year when I can.

    By Linda on December 20, 2010 6:19 PM

    I would love to get an IPad, you can use it for all kinds of things. So I can keep busy while waiting on the airplane or someone else is driving on a long trip.

    By Harry on December 20, 2010 6:36 PM

    I love a sudoku book for my travel.

    By Wendy on December 20, 2010 6:59 PM

    A good travel gift for me would be a new cell phone that is bluetooth compatable as that is the law in Ontario, Canada.

    By Vicky Fitzpatrick on December 20, 2010 7:21 PM

    I would love and evening out with my husband.

    By Anne on December 20, 2010 7:39 PM

    A perfect gift would be a trip to Las Vegas.

    By Judi Glenn on December 20, 2010 7:41 PM

    I would like to win a week long stay and the Best Western Shaffsbury, Paddington, London during the week of the Royal Wedding in April, 2011.

    By sylvia bengisoy on December 20, 2010 8:47 PM

    I would go with the basics . . . a gas card for my brother and a major tune-up for his jalopy.

    By Frederick Valdez on December 21, 2010 12:13 AM

    I would like to spend a three day weekend in a Best Western for a Honey Moon that my Wife and Myself never got take when we got married 34 years ago!!!

    I would like to have free internet and phone wherever I go.

    By Annette Stelk on December 21, 2010 7:46 AM

    I would like a new vacuum cleaner so I can travel from room to room and clean up the dog and cat hair everywhere.

    By Natasha Kovach on December 21, 2010 7:48 AM

    I would love to gift flights to all my siblings so I could see all of them for Christmas! :)

    By Victor L on December 21, 2010 7:50 AM

    It might sound funny as a gift. But the best travel gift for me would be a emergency kit for when we do those road trips. Ie: first aid kit, blanket, flares, tools, flashlight. It works for me.

    By Agnes L on December 21, 2010 7:53 AM

    I bought my husband a GPS for Christmas so would love to receive BW travel cards so we can test out the GPS.

    By Judy Castellan on December 21, 2010 7:56 AM

    The gift of TIME. Take a child skating, a parent out to see the sights, sounds,smells of Christmas, a friend to get their nails done together, a partner to lunch.

    By Huberte Poirier-Vachon on December 21, 2010 7:58 AM

    I would dearly love to get an I-Pod or I-Pad for Christmas.

    By Graham Rignall on December 21, 2010 8:08 AM

    I would love an ipad

    By kathy on December 21, 2010 8:10 AM

    By Carol Pickup on December 21, 2010 8:17 AM

    I would love a travelcard so I could spend a stormy winter day at Tofino watching the huge waves pound in from the Pacific Ocean!!

    By Crystal Drew on December 21, 2010 8:28 AM

    Nothing suites me better than Best Western Travel Cards. I always redeem Air Miles Points for Best Western Cards. Having some " gifted " to me would sure be swell !!!

    By Shana Bickford on December 21, 2010 8:38 AM

    I want a trip to the Best Western Cliffe Hotel in Bath, Great Britain. As a child I was in England under unfortunate circumstances over 30 years ago when I flew in from a developing nation and was ill with dysentery. I was in the hospital for a couple of weeks and never got to see England because when I left I was taken from the hospital to the airport. My friend just moved home to Bournemouth from Colorado and I found the Cliffe Hotel on the Best Western site while searching for locations in or near Bournemouth. I would give this gift too if I could.

    By Deborah on December 21, 2010 8:52 AM

    Best travel gift for us this year - an e-reader!

    By Donna Cowie on December 21, 2010 8:57 AM

    new luggage for my cruise next summer.

    By Donna Cowie on December 21, 2010 8:59 AM

    new luggage for a cruise next summer.

    By Jerry Atamanchuk on December 21, 2010 9:02 AM

    A family reunion - everyone to be together for Christmas!

    By Donna Cowie on December 21, 2010 9:03 AM

    I would love new luggage for my next trip.

    By KrysAdlers on December 21, 2010 9:09 AM

    An iPhone to be able to use the BW apps!

    By Wes van der Lee on December 21, 2010 9:25 AM

    I would love a Best Western Travel card that my wife and I could use on our next trip to the Netherlands. Wes van der Lee

    By Angela McLeod on December 21, 2010 9:37 AM

    We travel frequently with our old ratty luggage. New luggage would be such a treat.

    By Dev K on December 21, 2010 9:51 AM

    Love to go to Paris with family

    By Carl on December 21, 2010 10:00 AM

    I would lie to have enough points, to pay for the wedding party, of our son, next July.

    By Kathie on December 21, 2010 10:06 AM

    I would love to take my family on a vacation together.

    By Arlene on December 21, 2010 10:24 AM

    I'd love Best Western travel gift cards, a weekend away would be great!

    By Kathlene McCuaig on December 21, 2010 10:41 AM


    It would be just a fabulous gift to see my birth mother this Christmas, as she will be celebrating her 60th birthday, and we have only met once, over 15years ago. Her health is not good, and she lives in Thunder Bay, which is an expensive plane ticket or long trip in the car. I think of her often, and hope that she is well.

    By Diane Purdon on December 21, 2010 10:55 AM

    I would love to have a Best Western travel card to use on our next trip where
    ever that may be.

    By qi on December 21, 2010 11:54 AM

    I would love to have an IPad so I can get access to information easily, watch news or movies with my family while waiting at the airport, write emails, and everything else you name it!

    By Elizabeth Hilborn on December 21, 2010 12:00 PM

    The absolute best gift to give is a combination of BW travel cards and an IPad. With the apps available, it takes the place of a GPS, gives one something to do in the airport while waiting, and can keep the kids occupied on long trips. the travel cards ensure that those who recieve them always stay at the best hotels!

    By Deb on December 21, 2010 12:08 PM

    I would love a contribution towards a flight for my Mom in England to come see me for the first time in Canada.

    By Mitchell on December 21, 2010 12:11 PM

    iPad

    By Laura Opsal on December 21, 2010 12:17 PM

    I would like to give 'gift cards' for hotel /airfare to my sister who lives away. Would also be very nice to receive the same so my mother and I could visit her.

    By Hilary Larmour on December 21, 2010 12:21 PM

    Hil & Ken,

    As we are turning the big -"65" -in June & August we would like to go back to Dallas and Arizona again.
    We had a fantastic time last year and would very much like to return.

    The gift card of ($250.00), would sure help with our stays at the Best Westerns along our way.

    Thanks
    P.S. Have A Happy Holiday Season & A Safe New Year.

    By tommy gee on December 21, 2010 12:21 PM

    a excellent xmas gift would be enough Best Western travel gift cards to be able to speng one relaxing long weekend a month, with a "special someone". A I Phone with Gps would be a great addition to the "getaways" so I could then keep track of my wife. Merry Christmas to me, hahaha oops hohoho

    By Richard Grass on December 21, 2010 12:23 PM

    A GPS is essential for all travels..

    By Roy Sutton on December 21, 2010 12:28 PM

    We would like to fly out west to visit our sons in Alberta and B. C.

    By Cindy Minke on December 21, 2010 12:39 PM

    I prefer the Best Western gift cards. I use them all the time when I meet up with my high school friends (30 years ago). I was wonderful on our last visit. Since our room was paid for with the certificates, we splurged on a spa day at the hotel!!

    By Mary-Anne Falk on December 21, 2010 12:45 PM

    My family needs new luggage; I would love to receive that for Christmas!

    By Marla Willier on December 21, 2010 12:46 PM

    I like the versatility of having the gift cards. I can run away for a day or two whenever I need a break and most cities have a Best Western.

    By Bob Reid on December 21, 2010 12:46 PM

    I would like an iPod to carry with me when I travel in 2011.

    By Keith & Renate Pollock on December 21, 2010 12:50 PM

    A river boat cruise of Europe!

    By Daniel Couture on December 21, 2010 12:53 PM

    I would love to have and IPad.

    By Kristi on December 21, 2010 12:55 PM

    I'd love to have a new entertainment system.

    By Daniel Couture on December 21, 2010 12:56 PM

    I would love to have an IPad.

    By Lynn Boyd on December 21, 2010 12:56 PM

    I would like a trip to Florence, Italy.

    By Tyne on December 21, 2010 12:58 PM

    For Christmas, I am giving a GPS with bluetooth. That way, my hubby will be safe while traveling.
    Since I travel so much for business, I would love to receive an IPad. Then I'd be able to check my personal emails, make my hotel reservations, book flights, read local newspapers and be able to read books.

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    By Kathryn Graham on December 21, 2010 12:58 PM

    I would love a trip to Europe!!

    By Ian on December 21, 2010 12:59 PM

    plane tickets to a warm sandy beach!

    By LGG on December 21, 2010 12:59 PM

    My wife has been using the same cell phone for almost 10 years, a nice new touch phone for her would be awesome!

    By Emilie Kitteringham on December 21, 2010 1:00 PM

    I would love to spend another week at the BW Hotel Posada Freeman by the ocean. sigh.........

    By ellen on December 21, 2010 1:01 PM

    to gift or receive an ipad would be awesome. it has so many possibilities.

    By Dave Jenkinson on December 21, 2010 1:05 PM

    While I love to read books in their original "paper" form, one of the e-readers would allow me to take many more books on holiday.

    By Michel Gagnon on December 21, 2010 1:06 PM

    one of the best gift i can receive would be a i phone4 to replace my blackberry.

    happy holidays to all

    By Lisa Blair on December 21, 2010 1:06 PM

    I would love to spend a long weekend at BW Icicle Inn at Leavenworth, WA one of the suites. I have chronic pain and the hot tubs are to die for it just melts all of my pain and troubles away. Plus the little german town is fun and the food is great.

    By Susan on December 21, 2010 1:07 PM

    A gps would be great for finding our way when we travel. Rental car companies charge about $10 a day to rent one.

    By asccn on December 21, 2010 1:10 PM

    I'd like to work four weeks and have the rest of the year as vacation, but if I had to rely on one thing, I would say it would have to be a Samsung Galaxy S phone, not only because I would be able to phone ahead, but GPS is handy and games for my 10 year old.

    By Debbie Sprieszl on December 21, 2010 1:11 PM

    I would love a trip for 2 anywhere.

    By EM on December 21, 2010 1:12 PM

    I would love to give my wife a trip to Europe. Happy Holidays to all!

    By Ken Favrholdt on December 21, 2010 1:12 PM

    I would like to take my wife to Fresno, California to visit my 84 year old uncle. That would be a real treat!

    By Sharon Swales on December 21, 2010 1:12 PM

    I find the Best Western travel cards are more versitile when travelling. It allows the gift to be used for hotel accommodation as well as other charges you may incur while staying at a Best Western Hotel. They come in a wide variety of demoninations and you don not have to worry if it fit or not.

    By mb on December 21, 2010 1:13 PM

    I would like to go to mediteranean cruise

    By VJM on December 21, 2010 1:15 PM

    I am very techy-challenged so don't know anything about those games, etc. But,.. a GPS would help me NOT get lost!
    An iPod touch or iPhone would be another amazing gift. My cell phone is on its last legs (VERY old). Of course, someone would then have to teach me how to use/do everything!

    By Bob B on December 21, 2010 1:16 PM

    A great gift would be a Walt Disney FL trip at a BW for a needy family. The joy that would bring would make everyone associated with it feel good.

    By Chris Jay on December 21, 2010 1:17 PM

    I would love a ipad, or possibly a nice weekend away at St. Jacobs Best Western.

    By hawkind on December 21, 2010 1:18 PM

    Travel card, nothing like them, it feels like free money.

    By Linda Cleary on December 21, 2010 1:20 PM


    I have been looking at Alaska cruises, and a new camera to photograph
    all of the wildlife and scenery would be great!!

    By Saz on December 21, 2010 1:24 PM

    I would love to give a travel tickets so that my family in the uk could join us for Christmas in Calgary Canada . Good Times :)

    By Charity Goetzinger on December 21, 2010 1:29 PM

    I would love a Tumi Alpha Frequent Traveler 22-inch Carry-on!

    By Sam Nan on December 21, 2010 1:30 PM

    I'm a Best Western kind of guy (nothing wrong with that, especially on this site), my wife is a Four Seasons kind of gal (again, nothing wrong with that). We travel a lot and I would like to see if I can change her perceptions, just a little bit, with a stay at one of the Best Western Premium hotels. So, I guess, what I want for Christmas is a chance to change perspective in 2011...it would do wonders for our travel spend.

    By Janice Kantola on December 21, 2010 1:34 PM

    I would like a new gnome, and a new suitcase for him so he could travel with me.

    By Vincent Athey on December 21, 2010 1:34 PM

    I like the gift of good health when we travel

    By Terry Ivan on December 21, 2010 1:40 PM

    At our ages, we want peace and quiet. Health - both mental and physical.
    To take small trips throughout the year. And enjoy every mile/kilometer on that trip. Meet new people. See new things. And then go to The Best Western and relax.

    By dj on December 21, 2010 1:44 PM

    I would love a Dremel grinder.

    By Rhonda Dupusi on December 21, 2010 1:45 PM

    I'd love to win an all inclusive vacation to a tropical island.

    By Prashant Padwal on December 21, 2010 1:47 PM

    Ipad

    By Jack Keller on December 21, 2010 1:49 PM

    the philosopher in me just wants to be happy but the materialist would like a nice 6 piece spey rod so i can indulge my passion, cope with my disability, and still get it on the plane.

    By Carole Reid on December 21, 2010 1:50 PM

    A trip across Canada!

    By Hasan Malek on December 21, 2010 1:51 PM

    A laptop to remain connected while on the move.

    By John Graykoski on December 21, 2010 1:55 PM

    If Santa would give me two first class round trip tickets on Sun Country Airlines, I would send him a thank you note from Puerto Vallarta

    By bob G on December 21, 2010 1:56 PM

    I would really like a new set of golf clubs to enjoy my retirement; my current set cost $100 at Boscov's

    Tickets for 2011 NHL winter classic in Pittsburgh against Caps :)

    By Anne DeVries on December 21, 2010 2:02 PM

    We love traveling all over either driving or flying to our destination. I would love an e reader so I do not have to take bags of books along. It would be great to pull an e reader out of my purse while waiting for a flight it relaxing by a pool

    By DEE on December 21, 2010 2:03 PM

    I would love an IPAD to keep me up-to-date or a Gift card to a Best Western Hotel so that we can visit our family members who live on each coast.

    By Corey Carter on December 21, 2010 2:09 PM

    I would love to give my wife an IPAD. She has stuck it out with my work being slow. If I can get her one of these Iit would make me more happy giving it to her than she would receiving it.

    By Bob on December 21, 2010 2:09 PM

    Health and happiness for my wife and me !

    By C.I. Lee on December 21, 2010 2:11 PM

    I want to go Melbourne in January to watch Aussie Open with Jung.

    By Margo on December 21, 2010 2:12 PM

    The best gift would be the South African vacation I am hoping for, but in the absence of that I will take a trip to Indianapolis to see Peyton and the Colts and a visit to the Wolf reserve nearby.

    By David Endresen on December 21, 2010 2:18 PM

    I would use a Best Western Gift card to visit Yellow Stone National Park and stay at your Best Western Just outside the Park.

    By MP on December 21, 2010 2:19 PM

    The best travel gifts are good guidebooks, like DK Eyewitness Travel Guides. They have great maps and diagrams that save you lots of steps. And with their explanations, you know exactly what you're looking at.

    By Larry Thomas on December 21, 2010 2:22 PM


    Anything that's not 'material.'

    My daughter is going to Europe with her school next spring so I am giving her the gift of a passport holder, some pounds and a suitcase, those I think are great travel gifts!

    By Warren Ulrich on December 21, 2010 2:26 PM

    As we are part of the snowbird flock, the best travel gifts for us are the Best Western Gift cards. We also have grandchildren back on the Canadian Prairies that we visit several times a year. Best Western Gift cards for sure!

    By Stacym on December 21, 2010 2:28 PM

    I would love a ruby red overnite bag and a Best western gift card so I can go away for a relaxing break!

    By Lil on December 21, 2010 2:48 PM

    Hi! I would love to have a Best Western travel card to go someplace sunny and warm. Thank you.

    By D L Varnam on December 21, 2010 2:48 PM

    The best gift would be a visit to our grandchildren in AZ or CA. $ 250 would go a long way into letting that happen

    By Lesley on December 21, 2010 2:51 PM

    I would like a new car stereo for Christmas! But if I don't get that, a BW travel card sure would be nice.

    By Chris W on December 21, 2010 2:51 PM

    I would love a computer carry-on bag that is large enough to serve as a "weekender" bag also.

    By Marian C. Mac Donald on December 21, 2010 2:54 PM

    I would love to have an Ipad so that I can stay connected with family and savour the moments with photos.My Mom will be "95" and those moments are precious.

    By Eileen Shulenbarger on December 21, 2010 3:09 PM

    I would like a motor home so we could tour the country, stopping at Best Westerns along the way, of course. A GPS would be nice, too.

    I believe that a decent GPS (TOM TOM) would be an affordable and useful gift.

    By Jerry Terrio on December 21, 2010 3:19 PM

    Since my daughter is home for the holidays and playing her Ipod I've decided that I'm not too old to enjoy a gadget like this also!!

    By Marty Bitter on December 21, 2010 3:20 PM

    GPS. What else do you need when you travel over 40 weeks a year. Right?

    By Barbara Golstein on December 21, 2010 3:20 PM

    By Marla skroch on December 21, 2010 3:27 PM

    I would love to give the gift of Best Western Travel cards because they can take you any where in the world and they are quick and easy to use. For myself, I would love B.W. travel cards too, but a GPS for my car would also be nice. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone.

    By Lindasue on December 21, 2010 3:32 PM

    A portable DVD player, some good paperbacks, and a water bottle with built-in filter. Then I would be ready to go anywhere!

    By diane on December 21, 2010 4:09 PM

    I would give a TomTom and a best western gift card. That way the traveler couldnt get lost and would have a great place to stay.

    By kim on December 21, 2010 4:11 PM

    I would love to have the gift card to travel somewhere warm this winter.

    By Mary Jo Hawkins on December 21, 2010 4:16 PM

    I would like to give a military family a reunion at one of your warmest
    Best Western locations, when a military personnel gets their next leave,
    especially over the holidays.

    They are so far away from their famiies during this holiday season,
    and I know their hearts ache just for the sight of their family.

    Mary Jo Hawkins,
    Charlotte, N.C.

    By Jarvis Turkell on December 21, 2010 4:35 PM

    I would really like three pit tickets to a Monster Jam. My 4 year old really likes monster trucks.

    I would like the Travel Card to travel to Ky to see a friend in a nursing home and a brother-in-law who had a stroke.

    By Cheryl on December 21, 2010 4:40 PM

    I REALLY need to get a new GPS for the motorcyle...have a GPS that has never been updated....well we were on our way back from Colorado Springs (we live in Chicago) and we were looking for a nice place to have a good lunch....well we talked to a couple of other bikers and they gave us somewhat directions to the location.....well I plugged in the town and my GPS led us into a cow pasture!! Yep...it did not know that the bridge was out so it sent us the wrong way! Needless to say I need a new GPS,,,,before the riding season begins again in 2011!!!
    PS we love staying at Best Westerns....they are awesome and they take VERY good care of the bikers!!!!

    By Joan on December 21, 2010 4:41 PM

    I would like to be able to take a family vacation, not just to visit family, but an actual vacation with my husband and daughter. We took our first family vacation this past July (my daughter is 22) to Boston, and we had a blast. We could only manage 5 days, but it was great!!! I would really like to be able to take a trip annually. There is no greater gift than time with your family!

    By Shareen on December 21, 2010 4:42 PM

    My wish is to check off an item on my "bucket list" by taking my 83 year old Mom and traveling to Mesa Verde National Park. A Best Western gift card to use on a room in the area would be wonderful!

    By Zlata Sankovic on December 21, 2010 4:43 PM

    I would like a Best Western gift card to do some traveling and also travel tickets to see other country

    By Randy Morton on December 21, 2010 4:43 PM

    I think the best gift to give would be a Tuscan holiday in the April/May
    timeframe to a very deserving older couple.

    By Andi on December 21, 2010 4:44 PM

    I would like new tires for my van, so when I hit the road I won't slide off of it!

    By Meredith on December 21, 2010 4:45 PM

    Always appreciate a travel card with lots of flexibility to give and receive as a gift.

    By Adrienne on December 21, 2010 4:46 PM

    I would love to try a Best Western in another country!

    By pam on December 21, 2010 4:46 PM

    I would love to send my daughter and her friends to Universal Studios Florida to visit Hogwarts Castle and Harry Potter.

    By Lorri on December 21, 2010 4:48 PM

    All I want for Christmas is a Best Western Gift Card so I can visit family, but not impose on them and still have my privacy. Can't think of a better gift to give or receive!!!
    P.S. Dear Kids, I prefer a Queen Size Bed, Non Smoking Room with a Microwave & Frig. Love Mom

    By Denise Leigh on December 21, 2010 4:48 PM

    I would love to receive a travel JOB working for Best Western so I will be able to stay at Best Western hotels as part of my job.

    By Ernie Thompson on December 21, 2010 4:53 PM

    By Don Sims on December 21, 2010 4:55 PM

    I hope that all the people and kids I work with have a wonderful holiday season and that anyone out and about makes it home safely!

    By Michael J. M. on December 21, 2010 4:59 PM

    What is MOST important? Well, the first thing you do when traveling, is get on the plane. So, I either take along shoes I can easily kick off, or bring those little scrunchy elastic hospital things that stretch over your feet (then pack the good shoes). Next, a few snack bars - as long as they don’t have any foil in the wrappers. Follow those with a good paperback book. So, now we’re on the plane. Wohoo. Upon arrival, if you actually get to your actual destination, maybe you should have a $250 gift card in hand, one of those major names, you know - just in case. You never know when you might have to spend a night or three in a flophouse hotel that’s next to a field of cows...I surely did. And on top of that, it was snowing, and all of the restaurants were closed. Another thing I usually bring is a little, yet bright, flashlight. If you’ve ever been somewhere when the lights have cut out - you’d have paid good money for one. And, of course, I never go anywhere without my iPhone and it’s charger.

    By Tony Barnes on December 21, 2010 5:02 PM

    An e-book is an absolute essential for me to travel with!

    By mike s on December 21, 2010 5:02 PM

    The only thing I would like is a day off from work. Otherwise I have
    What I want.

    By Teri Cook on December 21, 2010 5:07 PM

    A friend of mine just found out her 6-year old son has cancer. The treatments are done in a hospital 6 hours away and are on going until at least March. So I bought a $100 Best Western Gift Card and a $50 gas card (all I could afford) for them to help with travel expenses.

    By Mary White on December 21, 2010 5:13 PM

    I just want my new granddaughter to be born healthy and for my grandson to live a long and enjoyable life. Also I would like for all of our troops to be home with their families this holiday season.

    By Maryjean Makela on December 21, 2010 5:19 PM

    A Kindle loaded with lots of great reads!

    By Phantom007 on December 21, 2010 5:19 PM

    My wife and I are giving each other a trip to Victoria then Edmonton to visit family. Flying out and driving home. Doesn't matter what else I recieve for christmas but the GPS would be fun for the trip back

    By G Massie on December 21, 2010 5:33 PM

    A Kindle for sure - I don't read as much as I used to but I'd sure like to!

    By Doug on December 21, 2010 5:33 PM

    I would like to gift a dozen room nights to the non-profit Andre Sobel River of Life Foundation which provides emergency support to families with ill children that have run out of financial resources to keep the family together while the child is getting care. As for me, I have all that I could ask for - a love of life and an appreciation of the people in my life. Thank you.

    By L Childers on December 21, 2010 5:36 PM

    I would love to have a Kindle or some other type of e-reader and I would love to read on it while traveling to a Smoky Mountain Christmas!

    By Bob on December 21, 2010 5:40 PM

    I would be very sad to have to travel without an IPAD.

    By gary gunn on December 21, 2010 5:43 PM

    Just wishing to get to spend time with family. It would be great if our youngest daughter could be home for Christmas but any that come will be welcome

    By Joe Kelley on December 21, 2010 5:44 PM

    I would like new tires for my truck.

    By Jean on December 21, 2010 5:45 PM

    I'd love a Kindle. With a Kindle I could bring as many books as I want without worring about space or weight in my luggage!

    By Gail Sampson on December 21, 2010 5:46 PM

    I'd love to stay at the Best Western in Venice, Italy!

    By K. Trask on December 21, 2010 5:49 PM

    My husband is treating his parents to a trip to Skyland/Shenandoah National Park for their 60th Anniversary, so it would be great to treat him to a stay in a BW at the next place he wants to go...Mt. Rushmore!

    By Kim on December 21, 2010 5:51 PM

    The best travel gift for this Christmas would be to take my family to Disneyland.

    By Harry on December 21, 2010 5:53 PM

    Continued good health is at the top of my list!

    By LINDA WICKERSHAM on December 21, 2010 5:56 PM

    By Vicki on December 21, 2010 5:57 PM

    A trip to my favorite Best Western in California!

    By Kim on December 21, 2010 6:04 PM

    This year I would love to give my EXHAUSTED sister-in-law a portable DVD player so the kids would have something to watch during the 5+ hour drive to see the rest of the family! Actually ideally, more than one- to cater to each child but I don't want to be greedy and am NOT made of money! For 40 years I have known the long and trying ride.....I can't imagine the pain and patience it takes with a 6 and 2 year old!

    By Nancee Rostad on December 21, 2010 6:06 PM

    I would love to receive a Nook color reader because I tend to bring several books along on any of my travels. Having all my books on a Nook reader would make my suitcase much lighter.

    By LTrx on December 21, 2010 6:08 PM

    The ability and good fortune to be able to continue to travel and see more of the world, with my spouse of over 50 years. One really couldn't ask for much more..

    By dirk rietdijk on December 21, 2010 6:12 PM

    i would love a ski trip to the canadian rockies

    By HJ on December 21, 2010 6:13 PM

    Just simple peace and quiet - that's a greater gift than anything material!

    By John Klenke on December 21, 2010 6:13 PM

    A Macbook pro that can get all the local tourist info and buy tickets online - not to mention to search for the nearest Best Western.

    By mark rossi on December 21, 2010 6:14 PM

    I would love to give the gift of Itay to my mom ( who is from southern Italy,,,and has never been back to see any of her family...She is 83, and I would love to see her eyes on christmas day when she sees ,,her family right in front of her...that would be the best gift I could ever wish to give or get from anyone

    By Robin K on December 21, 2010 6:15 PM

    We are new to Best Western rewards and we love your hotels and motels. We no longer have to guess at what waits for us when we arrive. I would love to have a $250 certificate for Best Western and go visit my family in Scappoose, Oregon, and stay at the lovely Best Western in St Helens, Oregon.

    By Pat Kehr on December 21, 2010 6:20 PM

    A Kindle would be a perfect travel gift. So easy to carry and lots to read. I would love to receive it and also give it!.

    By hiroyuki fujita on December 21, 2010 6:22 PM

    With the 250 certificate, I would have traditional japanese mochi for the entire staff at the Best Western Mikado in North Hollywood on New Years Day.

    By Sue W. on December 21, 2010 6:22 PM

    I think a ipad would be awesome!!

    By Brent B on December 21, 2010 6:23 PM

    I wish everyone safe travels this holiday season. This would be absolute worse time of the year to have any bad news.

    By Larry Kipper on December 21, 2010 6:24 PM

    I would like a GPS - to keep me from getting lost in LARGE cities.
    We like to stay at the Best Western Cotton Tree at 900 Lindsay Blvd
    in Idaho Falls, ID - close to freeway & close to gas station.

    By Donna Boone on December 21, 2010 6:26 PM

    I would love to win a trip to Seaside Oregon, and yes there is a BW there right on the boardwalk....

    I would love to get a new SUV, as we love road trips and our old one has 145,000 miles on it! And how about an i-phone, so we can keep in touch while on the road!!

    By Laura L on December 21, 2010 6:43 PM

    I would like an Ipad, which would be very handy on trips. And any books on Croatia, Turkey, Tanzania or Zanzibar, all places I want to go - soon!

    By doug armstrong on December 21, 2010 6:46 PM

    I will be travelling to Sydney Australia in February to visit my daughter in University and boy would it come in handy down under.

    By Ellen Brown on December 21, 2010 6:48 PM

    Personally, I am tired of shopping to find gifts for everyone that are purely useless. This Christmas, our family all decided to only buy consumable and useable gifts. We have bought Gift Cards. The most practical Travel gift and one of my favourite gifts of all are Travel Cards from Best Western. I purchased a lot of these and I will be giving them out as presents. I also bought my kids Gift Cards at Grocery stores, we bought coffee cards and food cards at various restaurants. As my husband and I travel a lot in the summer on our motorcycles, gift cards to restaurants are so very useful. We have fun with the wrapping of the cards, different size boxes so they are undetectible, search and find all over the house. I am only hoping that we will get BW Travel cards because we always can use them. We always stay at Best Westerns and only stay elsewhere if there are no BW's in the vicinity.

    By Rick on December 21, 2010 6:50 PM

    I think gift cards are good for me such as gas,restaurant and hotel stays.

    By MALEK YANES on December 21, 2010 6:51 PM

    Sandi in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico
    I would love to have my kitchen remodeled. I had an accident in June and need a better working area and a dishwasher. A GPS would be real helpful when we travel so we can't get lost. Turn by turn, street by street. A trip to New Orleans would please my hubby.
    Thanks

    By Ruth on December 21, 2010 7:00 PM

    Hand held game devices and a neck pillow would make my trip more enjoyable or a good book!

    By Carey on December 21, 2010 7:01 PM

    I would love a notebook so I can look up places of interests, restuaruants etc. while we are travelling and most importantly so I can do my online check in for the trip home!

    By Al on December 21, 2010 7:01 PM

    As retirement approaches travel has been on our mind. A trip to Costa Rica would be just the kick off.

    By Maureen Jackman on December 21, 2010 7:03 PM

    to spend with loved ones. Plan to give back to the community this
    coming year.

    By Mike Lowry on December 21, 2010 7:26 PM

    Gift cards are the best gift fr the traveler--never have to worry about wrong size, wrong color, if person will really want the item. The cards let the traveler pick exactly what they want.

    By peter cruise on December 21, 2010 7:27 PM

    an illuminated magnifying glass for reading fine print on maps

    By Gary on December 21, 2010 7:28 PM

    By Clarissa on December 21, 2010 7:32 PM

    DVD PLAYER=QUIET KIDS! Our portable DVD player broke this summer, so it was a LONG trip back home! However, they DID count cows, played the "Alphabet Game", and sang travel songs...that was nice. But nothing beats silence after 5 days of Amusement Parks! Yes, we definitely would like a new portable DVD player....ha, ha! Thanks!

    By Kim on December 21, 2010 7:33 PM

    I would love to receive an e-book reader! This would help to catch up on all of my daily newspaper, magazines, and fun reading materials, whenever I had the time. I travel for my job, so this would be a great way to stay current with local and nationwide media forms.

    By rs on December 21, 2010 7:44 PM

    By bonnie on December 21, 2010 7:46 PM

    By Lisa on December 21, 2010 7:48 PM

    I would like an iPad.

    By Jeff on December 21, 2010 7:49 PM

    The best gifts to give would be a new kindle, or ipod touch. If they already own a ipod dock/alarm clock is a good gift too. I love going on vacation so a $100 best western travel card w/ the accompanying bonus $10 gift card or bonus points make a great gift

    By susan frost on December 21, 2010 7:57 PM

    I would like to spend a week on Maui

    By Toni on December 21, 2010 8:08 PM

    I feel the best gifts to give/receive would be the travel book or gift cards. A GPS may not be needed and a PSP is just something more to pack along.
    Travel book or gift cards can be used by everyone.

    By KIM HAVEL on December 21, 2010 8:10 PM

    The best travel gift to give this year is a vacation book for Dummies. We had a Las Vegas for Dummies book and it was great. We found out all kinds of neat info that helped us plan before we even got there.

    By James Mitchell on December 21, 2010 8:14 PM

    By Genevieve on December 21, 2010 8:27 PM

    I have always wanted to take a trip with my children but as a single mom money was tight. They are now grown and have children of their own. I still hope to take them on a real vacation before I leave this earth.

    I would love to take our kids (young adults) their family and the granddaughter to Disney World for a week.

    By Dede on December 21, 2010 8:36 PM

    I would like more weekends together with our kids who are just growing up too fast in front of our very eyes. Short weekend getaways cramping in one room, just like when they were small.... I long to re-live those memories again. Time together is the best gift to give & to receive always.

    By MMYQ on December 21, 2010 8:36 PM

    Directionally challenged and would love a GPS

    By Mark Murillo on December 21, 2010 8:37 PM

    I would really enjoy receiving Christmas Day off. I would like to spend it in New York City with my family. I havent had it off from work in 15 years.

    Would love a big screen HD TV

    By Margarita on December 21, 2010 8:45 PM

    I would like at least five days in one of your hotels. So ,I can be able to have a honeymoon!

    By Bobby on December 21, 2010 8:51 PM

    Would love to be able to give an unexpected gift on the spur of the moment to someone in need whether it be a much needed car or home repair, or outfit a family and send them on a vacation they've never had. I've always said it wouldn't do for me to be rich. I'd give it all away.

    By Kelly Applegate on December 21, 2010 8:55 PM

    I think an overnight stay at any of the Best Western's near the ocean in Northern California would be so great. We rarely get a break from work and kiddos these days and my very hard working husband really needs it. It would be a real blessing to us.

    By Phillip Saddler on December 21, 2010 9:03 PM

    My wish is for the family to fly first class from Boston to Seattle and stay at the Best Western close to the hospital where my daughter was born. It would be a good anniversary treat for us.

    By Nora Davis on December 21, 2010 9:06 PM

    I would like to receive a weekend at a Best Western where I could my daughter to enjoy the outdoors. She has special needs with one of her diagnosis being autism. She loves to stay at motels but instead of a stay for a doctor visit I would like for her to have one to enjoy the outdoors and relax.

    By Christy Barber on December 21, 2010 9:17 PM

    I would like a light backpack that also has wheels so that I can manoever wherever I go.

    By Kathie Hunwick on December 21, 2010 9:19 PM

    I really don't need anything special this Christmas as I have a wonderful family which is the best gift! I would, though, love to give the gift of life to others in less fortunate circumstances; clean water to those without, clothing to those who are needy, and love to the lonely.

    By valerie on December 21, 2010 9:25 PM

    i would give a bw gift card and tickets to disneyland to a family that has never been and couldnt afford it on their own

    By wjdunham on December 21, 2010 9:27 PM

    3 weeks in San Diego CA during February or March would be heaven.

    By william corwin on December 21, 2010 9:30 PM

    I would like to receive a HTC EVO or Samsung galaxy tab. Both would be great holiday travel gifts.

    By Miles Constantine on December 21, 2010 9:41 PM

    I would like to receive the gift of all our troops being out of harms way and heading home. I would love to give my wife a Kindle so she can easily read books while traveling.

    By Leslie Dickson on December 21, 2010 9:42 PM

    I would like to have a couple of notebooks for our kids. We homeschool and it would really help with lessons on the road while we road school.

    By ellen richards on December 21, 2010 9:43 PM

    a great travel gift would be a kindle and an i-music item. no matter where I was,beach or station, waiting or relaxing I would be entertained.
    also..a carry on toiletry bag that does have enough room for all the stuff I like to carry.

    By Kathy Campbell on December 21, 2010 9:43 PM

    We are so blessed this year with the arrival of new grandbaby, and we stay 10 days at a time at the Best Western Carriage Inn in Sherman Oaks so that we can be nearby. So my wish is for a Best Western Travel card to be given to another set of new grandparents so that they too can experience the joy of an extended visit to a new baby!

    By cynthia Kirk on December 21, 2010 9:50 PM

    The best travel gift one could receive would be a weeklong vacation to somewhere warm and exotic with your loved one.....

    By Susie Zweigler on December 21, 2010 9:52 PM

    I'd love a GPS system to help me get to my clients. Thank you!

    Susie Zweigler

    By Robin Johnson on December 21, 2010 9:55 PM

    I would like to give my sister the trip to paris she has always dreamed about since she was very young! I love my sister and she has always been my best friend. And I know she would charish that gift forever!!

    By Charles Lopez on December 21, 2010 10:06 PM

    I would like $2,000 to offset some expenses

    By Tina S on December 21, 2010 10:29 PM

    I would love to have a new thermos to hold my hot beverage on-the-go this winter. I was on my way out of the house the yesterday and I accidentally banged my thermos against concrete and the glass inside broke into a million pieces.

    By Dawn on December 21, 2010 10:32 PM

    I would love a GPS that is compatible with Australia as it was nightmare driving around Melbourne!! On a bigger scale I would love a round the world plane ticket and an IPhone to take with me.

    By Dee on December 21, 2010 10:48 PM

    My favourite would be a gift card for lodging or air travel. This is a great help when looking for a launching site for a trip ... and it helps keep the itinerary open.

    By Dwight (BlueStreak) on December 21, 2010 10:57 PM

    What I really need, since most of my travel is by Chevy SSR, is a lot of gas cards. It is a ball to drive but a bit pricey since it wants premium fuel. The trip is already planned for 2011 (about 10k miles) now I need to find the way to pay for it. Best Western will definitely be a part of the trip.

    By margie on December 21, 2010 11:08 PM

    I'd like summer camp trips for all the foster kids in my town.

    By John on December 21, 2010 11:17 PM

    I would like a nice Panama Canal Cruise.

    By Lorene on December 21, 2010 11:21 PM

    I'm with the others here that have said they'd like an e-reader - no more need the the old book bag!

    By m petree on December 21, 2010 11:36 PM

    I'd like a one week respite in a Best Western location for my lovely wife with a friend after the holidays where she can relax somewhere warm.

    By Dennis on December 21, 2010 11:38 PM

    An IPad would be nice

    By Pam V. on December 22, 2010 12:13 AM

    I would love to take my husband on a trip to the New England area of the U.S. where he's been wanting to go for a long time, but be able to fly first class so he could actually make the long trip.

    By wai yuen Siu on December 22, 2010 12:47 AM

    I like an iphone 4 with GPS function.

    By Larry on December 22, 2010 1:45 AM

    A white Christmas. A holiday trip up from the rainy Bay Area to hopefully a snowing Lake Tahoe and crackling fireplaces with a bottle or two of Champagne stashed in the trunk.

    By Andrea on December 22, 2010 2:03 AM

    Like they say... Diamonds are a girls best friend :)

    By ANGELA on December 22, 2010 3:18 AM

    I WOULD LOVE AN IPAD THE MOST

    By j mant on December 22, 2010 3:23 AM

    i think a GPS would be a wonderful gift for anyone. it is so frustrating not to know a city when travelling and knowing that a GPS would stop you from having to go to gas stations to ask directions.

    By Jeanie on December 22, 2010 3:23 AM

    I think the best Holiday or Anytime travel gift is a Best Western gift card! We travel to Oregon two or more times a year to see family and we stay at Best Western on the way. Being retired, the gift cards help with the expense of traveling.

    By Sharon King on December 22, 2010 3:28 AM

    The best travel gift I can think of would be the arrangements already made, bags packed and first class seats to vist my daughters and grandson. Then maybe enjoy reading the kindle and listening to an Ipod and having crubside car service. Of course this all would be paid for by someone else while still being paid vacation time at work.

    By Myron Jones on December 22, 2010 3:39 AM

    I would like an i pad for travel. It would be lighter and easier to carry.

    By Lynn Jacobson on December 22, 2010 3:42 AM

    A Nook to read whether at an airport or quietly sitting and relaxing at a great Best Western location!

    By Ann Dowdy on December 22, 2010 3:54 AM

    If you are on a budget a thoughtful give is to give small travel sizes of the recipients favorite lotions and potions. Spending more? The Kindle has to be one of the top gifts for the frequent traveler. And, the ultimate gift...tickets to somewhere that the recipient really wants to go! And, maybe you could buy a ticket for you to go too.

    By leeann condie on December 22, 2010 4:02 AM

    i was able to give al aptop and wireles printer. my grandson will be so happy

    By travelenthusiast on December 22, 2010 4:05 AM

    By Kent Stanzel on December 22, 2010 4:09 AM

    Tickets to an Edmonton Oilers game. My son is a hugh hockey/oilers fan and hasn't seen them play live. Joy for my family is the greatest gift

    By Karen Peters on December 22, 2010 4:10 AM

    I would love for me and my husband to fly to Kauai, Hawaii. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen. But my husband won't fly so I would like to go to Florida to the white sandy beaches.

    By Donna Blagg on December 22, 2010 4:10 AM

    I would love to have a gift card so we can travel anywere on our motorcycles and so we could buy Christmas gifts. Right now we are down to one income. It is very hard right now.

    By Charles Wirth on December 22, 2010 4:17 AM

    Gift cards are great!

    By Chris Kitchin on December 22, 2010 4:23 AM

    I would love to take my husband somwhere with warm sandy beaches, clear turquoise water, and waving palm trees -- so we can escape the cold Northeast winter and actually use that snorkle gear we bought last year.

    By mo on December 22, 2010 4:32 AM

    i could really use help with auto repair - my suburban has some issues - overheats(water pump? radiator?), door handle broke,and no heat. with a 3rd son who will start driving soon, it would be nice for him to get himself around.

    By Tiffany N on December 22, 2010 4:33 AM

    I'd love a Mediterrian cruise, just like our honeymoon's.

    By Sherri F on December 22, 2010 4:34 AM

    I would give a travel book to someone who wants to travel but thinks they can't afford it. There are a lot of great places to go without spending a lot of money. They'd have a great time doing something they always wanted to do, and they'd have a memorable vacation.

    By Daniel Nadeau on December 22, 2010 4:34 AM

    Kindles or any ereader is great for reading on the road.

    By Dieu V. on December 22, 2010 4:37 AM

    I was able to send my wife to see our grandkids instead of us staying home.

    By Mark Smith on December 22, 2010 4:37 AM

    I have just got to see my children after 3 yrs away from them (ex wife would not allow me to see them). They are now 12 and 15 and I would love to take them on a beach trip and spend some much needed quality time with. Catch up on some lost time.

    By Orville Pierce on December 22, 2010 4:49 AM

    As many of our family members together for CHRISTmas and lower gas prices. A new suit case would be nice.

    By Mz A on December 22, 2010 4:56 AM

    Be able to visit my daughter who is away at school and donate to a Family in need.

    By Allen Russell on December 22, 2010 4:58 AM

    The travel gift I would like most to receive is air fare and/or lodging gift cards. The travel gift I often give is GPS

    By Karen Matson on December 22, 2010 4:58 AM

    I'd love a trip to Hawaii to see my son and daughter-in-law.

    By William Cook on December 22, 2010 4:58 AM

    I wish I could give more money than I do to my Grandkids college funds! As to a gift for me. I want continued decent health and the ability to continue traveling. with that I wish for lower gas prices! Merry Christmas.

    By Bob Norris on December 22, 2010 5:13 AM

    The best travel gift this year would be an IPad.

    A Kindle--so I always have something to read.

    By Dan Landis on December 22, 2010 5:27 AM

    I'd love a Kindle loaded with books to read en route.

    By JennyE on December 22, 2010 5:27 AM

    For Christmas this year, I would love to receive gift cards to use on our 2nd anniversary trip next summer! Gift cards are so easy to use while traveling--a few Best Western travel cards would be the perfect stocking stuffer!

    By Judy C on December 22, 2010 5:28 AM

    Gotta love those e-book readers if you get trapped in a long airline delay - 11 hours for us last week trying to get from LAX to Toronto. The ability to download a new book while stuck on the airport runway can be a big plus!

    By alyce on December 22, 2010 5:29 AM

    I would love a skiing trip for the family.

    By Darrell Danielson on December 22, 2010 5:30 AM

    I would love to take my family on a weekend getaway. My son is a senior and my daughter is a junior, and both are getting ready to spread their wings and fly. My son takes off for basic training as soon as he graduates, so time is short. My girl is heading straight to college soon after. A little break would be great!

    By Lori Bav. on December 22, 2010 5:43 AM

    Being that I stay at all Best Westerns and think very highly of the hotel, I'd like to give my brother the gift of staying a the Mainstay Best Western in RI as it's one of my favorite stays. He's undergone a lot of personal issues this past year, has many of us have, but no one is more deserving than him. With all the he's undergoing, he tries to put his family before everything. I would love to treat him to a stay but I'm unable to afford it myself. Have a Happy Holiday season!!!!

    By Carl on December 22, 2010 5:45 AM

    My travel gift would be an Apple Ipad. Since e go on alot of road trips this would keep us entertained for hours.

    By Tamika Wilks on December 22, 2010 5:45 AM

    I Would Love, Love, Airline Tickets to bring my Daughter home from the ARMY for the Holidays!!

    By Santa on December 22, 2010 5:49 AM

    I like to give my soon to be ex-sister in law a vacation somewhere but that not realistic for me at the moment. She has very limited family for support during this unfortunate time. She can really use a day or two of pampering for herself. She's not afraid to travel alone so a stay at one of these great hotels in CT, MA, RI, VT would be a great Christmas surprise.

    By Andy on December 22, 2010 5:50 AM

    I would love a airfare or hotel gift card for our summer vacation. We enjoyed Glacier and Banff National last year so much. We are thinking of returning and this time just going to Canada and visiting Banff and Jasper.

    By Sharyn on December 22, 2010 5:51 AM

    Do they have a Best Western in Kenya. I would give anything to go on an African Safari - it is on my buckekt list but can't afford it.

    By Jan on December 22, 2010 5:53 AM

    An Ipad!

    By DW on December 22, 2010 5:58 AM

    By Mary Lou on December 22, 2010 5:58 AM

    For the Holiday season I would like for my whole family who are spread across the US to be together.

    By Brian on December 22, 2010 6:04 AM

    A Kindle seems like a great travel gift due to its small size, light weight, and extreme connectibility to access myriad reading materials at the airport, coffee shop, or poolside.

    By Tim P. on December 22, 2010 6:05 AM

    I would love to receive a 2011 GMC Acadia, but I'd settle for two tickets to Las Vegas.

    By Robert Dixon on December 22, 2010 6:05 AM

    Best Western travel card would be great

    By Liz on December 22, 2010 6:07 AM

    By Debbie Doolittle on December 22, 2010 6:08 AM

    I would love to give my husband a GPS for when we are traveling. A Best Western travel card would be a nice gift.

    By Walter Thobois on December 22, 2010 6:16 AM

    I'd love to use my points to give my relatives Ipod Touches, great for when they stay at Best Westerns, or when stuck at the airport. Perhaps with a Itunes gift card so they can customize them to their tastes. As for myself I'd be thrilled with a travel card to get away from the same family I adore, maybe with a gas card to get there?

    By Romany Norris on December 22, 2010 6:18 AM

    I'd love to have an extra paid day off fro work so I can have a long weekend to travel somewhere!

    By Sharon F. on December 22, 2010 6:19 AM

    I would love to have a gift card for air and/or hotel for travels within the United States or a gift card from Visa, MC or AMEX so I can use for any store purchases. A 32 to 42 inch HDTV, a PSP3 game or XBOX 360 which may come with a gift card for purchase of a game or two. A big wish that my Mom receives a blessing for a home makeover which she desparately needs.

    By Mrlene4 on December 22, 2010 6:19 AM

    By Daniel Wyatt on December 22, 2010 6:24 AM

    I like to give my traveling friends little all-weather dry bags to carry their wallet and valuables and protect them from the weather. I always wanted something to consolidate everything I have to take out of my pocket for a scanner at the airport, so I started carrying a little dry bag that can also double as a way to protect my wallet, IPOD, watch, etc while on the streets in case of bad weather.

    My husband and I love to travel to Hawaii to snorkel and see all of those beautiful fish. I am not a great swimmer, but it has been one of my favorite things to do. Hawaii is such a special place and we have traveled there for our 25th wedding anniversary. I would just love to give a travel gift to my husband for another anniversary trip. I hope everyone travels to Hawaii in their lifetime - all places there are so special and beautiful.

    By Rags on December 22, 2010 7:07 AM

    A great gift to receive would be a trip to a national Park out West like, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park with all costs covered. Happy Holidays !

    By DMauzy on December 22, 2010 7:15 AM

    By Rosa Lee Miller on December 22, 2010 7:16 AM

    I wish that I could go to Oklahoma to see my grandson. Then I would wish to continue to San Diego, to see my son, who is in the Navy.

    I want to hold them both in my arms and tell them just how much I love them. That's it...nothing more...

    By Michelle Johnson on December 22, 2010 7:22 AM

    We always stay at BW whenever we visit relatives. But in 17 years of marriage, 20 years of work and 2 kids later, we would all like to take a real family vacation away from the relatives. Merry Christmas BW family!!!

    By Cindy Harbin on December 22, 2010 7:23 AM

    I would love to take a much needed trip with my family to anywhere. It has been along time since we have had a family vacation. We are a close family but have'nt had the funds to do so at this time. So anywhere would be great. Thank you so much.

    By Rose Fry on December 22, 2010 7:23 AM

    By Suzanne on December 22, 2010 7:28 AM

    As far as a "dream travel gift," I would so love to be able to give my little boy a trip to Disney World. For his age, he is incredibly sweet and understanding that something like that is not within our budget right now, but it would make him very happy!

    By Rosie Fry on December 22, 2010 7:29 AM

    Free nights at Best Western or an Alaska Marine Highway gift certificate.

    By Sherrill Huffman on December 22, 2010 7:34 AM

    I gave my son a new laptop for Christmas. He is currently in Milan and has already been to London and Paris. He is 20, went on his own and is enjoying his adventure. I am so proud of him for that. He recieved his gift early and we are all benefitting from it as we can now communicate daily.

    By Sarah Cross on December 22, 2010 7:37 AM

    I have never been to vegas and would love to take my husband for his birthday next April. We work so hard all the time and have a 3 year old son. We have never had a vacation and have been married 5 years.

    By Jason Head on December 22, 2010 7:38 AM

    I NEED!!!!!!!! a GPS as my wife and I have to travel a lot these days as we grow older and finally have to drive on trips on our own. I'm a typical male who DOES NOT wan't to ask for directions SOOOOOO, I find a way to get lost or to turn on a one way street ALL THE TIME. Needless to say, a GPS will save me from being lost as well as being in the wrong state lost! Thanks and Merry Christmas!

    By Homayoun Modarresifar on December 22, 2010 8:06 AM

    I like to receive two open dated tickets to Iran; for my wife and myself. My wife has just came from a very large, vibrant and attaractive city(Tehran with over 12 million population) to a small town of 55000 population in Tennessee and she is really homesick. I am missing the family gatherings and good weather in Iran.

    By Richard Wallace on December 22, 2010 8:09 AM

    By CathyM on December 22, 2010 8:29 AM

    I would love new luggage. My luggage is starting to get holes in it from airline travel and age. I keep looking but so far nothing has caught my eye. Now that I have the opportunity to travel for work the luggage is becoming a need. Happy Holidays to all.

    By David Olsen on December 22, 2010 8:32 AM

    I am a truck driver and for Christmas I would like someone to take my load to Wyoming so that I can relax in the Best Western in St. George, Utah where it is warmer.

    By Gerry A on December 22, 2010 8:34 AM

    By Bev B. on December 22, 2010 8:38 AM

    This year, everyone is getting a passport cover in his/her Christmas stocking. They look great and keep our personal information safe.

    By Sandy on December 22, 2010 8:38 AM

    A fantastic train trip - it doesn't matter where! In North America I'd like to go either across Canada or down the west coast of the US. I'd take any of the great train trips in Australia. And who wouldn't want the Orient Express!

    By rob symchyck on December 22, 2010 8:41 AM

    the amout I travel, would love a Ipad touch to keep in touch with my daughter, as well as the reader, to read the bedtime stories to my daughter.
    Merry Christmas,
    Rob

    By Teresa on December 22, 2010 8:50 AM

    I would love a new set of luggage. I am the only person my family and friends know who has a "big suitcase" so they've all borrowed it again and again until the zipper broke, it ripped on the corner, it just looks worse for the wear. I've only used it three times...lol. I am going to be traveling more often now and I would like a new set of luggage for me! I'll keep "old faithful" around for my family and friends, but at least when I travel, I'll have a nice looking suitcase again! :)

    By Barbara on December 22, 2010 8:51 AM

    I'd love a flight to Alaska to complete my goal of traveling to all the states in the USA.

    By Mark on December 22, 2010 8:51 AM

    I would love the gift of health for my daughter whom had some concussions playing basketball with her college team so she can come back to the game she loves and assist her team as well as not have any long term affects.

    By Mary L. on December 22, 2010 8:52 AM

    I would like to give my niece, her two daughters and husband a trip home for the holidays. He is in the Marines thousands of miles away. I miss them. Also, I have not seen my new great-niece yet.
    Bless them all,
    Mary

    By Kathy Bohlin on December 22, 2010 8:55 AM

    Noise reduction headphones for long trip on airplane. Or to be really really extravagant and dream a lot -- a lifetime pass for first class air travel.

    By Kathy Bohlin on December 22, 2010 8:57 AM

    Noise reduction headphones or, a really really extravagant dream is a lifetime pass for first class air travel.

    By Michael on December 22, 2010 9:00 AM

    Our 3 year old would LOVE an iPad. He loves to play ABC games and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom on YouTube.

    By Deb Mitchler on December 22, 2010 9:03 AM

    I would love to give airline tickets for my two step-children and their significant others to visit us in Florida. Since my husband transferred from his job in Wisconsin to Florida in 2004, his son and daughter have not visited us . This gift would be two-fold; one, for my husband to have his family together and two, his children to have a vacation.

    Debbie

    By Alain P. AMBAMANI on December 22, 2010 9:07 AM

    I would love to give my family a dream trip of their life. This is will be a big surprise.

    By Nancy McChesney on December 22, 2010 9:21 AM

    Dear Santa, I've been very good this year, although still unemployed. I would really love an Ipad, Ipod, or Iphone for Christmas, but I'd be thrilled with any travel gift card to use on a vacation of my choice! Thanks, Santa!

    By Susan Veilleux on December 22, 2010 9:21 AM

    I think an electronic book reader would be a great travel gift. It would help pass the time on long flights, layovers and when you get to your destination you could still use it to relax. If not, I'll take a trip to Tahiti!

    By sharonw on December 22, 2010 9:23 AM

    I wish for good health, and the continued ability to travel far and wide

    By Nancy Bray on December 22, 2010 9:24 AM

    A train trip across the US. Rode the Amtrak a few times when younger. My children have never been on one and I would love atrip we could all go on.

    By Noreen on December 22, 2010 9:29 AM

    I would like Santa to bring a devise to use so that our family can join in on the Geocache Craze!

    By L. on December 22, 2010 9:31 AM

    A wonderful gift would be the gift of good health...and a travel gift card to go with it!

    By Jayne on December 22, 2010 9:31 AM

    Although I live in California and most people are heading west to stay warm, I would like a trip back east to visit my family. Being with loved ones is worth more than money or any thing it can buy.

    By AussieInDC on December 22, 2010 9:32 AM

    A scenic helicopter flight at night above the New York City skyline would be incredible to an Aussie expat who is a country girl at heart. Happy Holidays!

    By Linda on December 22, 2010 9:34 AM

    I would love to give my hubby a cruise as he really needs a vacation.

    By Ang on December 22, 2010 9:35 AM

    Miles, miles, miles. Good for giving and getting.

    By Janet on December 22, 2010 9:40 AM

    A weekend trip to the Oregon Coast. Yummy.

    By Dan on December 22, 2010 9:55 AM

    I would like a built in coffee pot with a spigot on the dash to make fresh mochas while on the road.

    By Cheryl on December 22, 2010 10:01 AM

    I would love a weekend getaway with my husband to San Simeon/Cambria, CA. We both have very stressful jobs and need the stress relief. With the economy being what it is, we have both suffered major pay cuts so we just don't have the money for our getaways anymore. I wish I could surprise him with a weekend getaway to our favorite Motel 6 in San Simeon.

    By Rose on December 22, 2010 10:04 AM

    A gift card would be the best gift for me. This could be used on a rental car, hotel, cruise or flight. It allows the most flexability for creating a vacation.

    By Shirley on December 22, 2010 10:06 AM

    I always like to recieve a free flight! I have lots of children to visit across the country.

    By Kathy on December 22, 2010 10:08 AM

    I would like an Alaskan Cruise with optional excursions for my dad and I. He has always wanted to see Alaska and now that he's 83, doesn't feel he can. He took my mom to Hawaii for her dream vacation, but broke his back the year they were supposed to go to Alaska. He's never been able to replan the trip and now my mom is gone. My travel tip is always have access to a GPS! I drive around the country a few times a year and never have to worry about going somewhere new and getting lost!

    By Cheryl on December 22, 2010 10:08 AM

    Sorry, I meant Best Western Cavalier, I have NO idea why I typed Motel 6. Must be the stress. :^)

    By Shelly B on December 22, 2010 10:08 AM

    I would love a coupon for a ski vacation to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Hopefully it would cover all expenses including airfare, condo rental, lift tickets and equipment rental. Throw in all meals and shopping too!

    By Clint on December 22, 2010 10:11 AM

    A ticket for two to fly anywhere in the world.

    By kathy Campbell-Barton on December 22, 2010 10:12 AM

    Health and the opportunity to travel even if it is only in close to home in the beautiful state of Oregon.

    By Myrle on December 22, 2010 10:12 AM

    The best travel gift is when you get to visit family or they get to visit you. With family spread far and wide with lives that are busy and often stress-filled, a relaxing visit with people you love (and that love you) would be just the right present.

    By Amos Buriak on December 22, 2010 10:13 AM

    My wish would be for travel coupons with which I could travel to see my family in Thailand. Maybe in time to celebrate my upcoming 40th birthday this January!

    By Susan on December 22, 2010 10:18 AM

    Best travel gift? I like small LED flashlights as gifts for travelers. I'm giving one to each of my grown children plus a whistle for my daughter-in-law who sometimes has to travel alone for work. You can never be too safe or too careful.

    By Jennifer on December 22, 2010 10:28 AM

    I would love to get and give a winter away from the cold north! Anywhere warm will do!

    By Arlo Petersen on December 22, 2010 10:30 AM

    By Patt on December 22, 2010 10:30 AM

    I would love an IPad , a Mac Laptop or Kindle reader...I'd take all 3!

    By Johnnie on December 22, 2010 10:34 AM

    I have been blessed to help others this year, and in returned I have been Blessed to recieve the same help when needed. I would continue the same thing if I received the card. I would also go and see my family since at the time I am unable to do so.

    By Barb on December 22, 2010 10:36 AM

    Travel gift cards of money, gas, or Best Western Hotel! for our family cross-country trip in the year 2011.

    I would love to win this I am planning a trip to Texas with my grandchildren.
    My grandson James is graduating from High School in 2011 and this is the trip he want to take. We will be there for 9 days traveling Texas. So would come in handy

    By Jerry on December 22, 2010 10:41 AM

    In these economically challenging times of my life, It would be great to have a $250 Best Western Travel Card®, then I could get my car tuned up and be able to buy gas for my car in the up comming year. That way I could visit my 92 year old mother in her nursing home in Huntsville, Alabama and stay at the Best Western too.

    By Doris on December 22, 2010 10:42 AM

    I want an I phone so I can keep in touch, take picture, find a great restaurant etc.., everything I need to do in one gadget.

    By John Courtney on December 22, 2010 10:45 AM

    With the cost of fuel going up all the time, I would like gas cards to keep my tank full for visiting friends and family over the holidays.

    By Bobbi on December 22, 2010 10:46 AM

    I love to travel, but have limited funds, and so an ideal gift would be a Best Western Travel card. I would love to go to Hawaii and one of my favourite spots is The Best Western Coconut Plaza in Waikiki. Would love to return there as I haven't been able to go since 2005.

    By scott on December 22, 2010 10:46 AM

    My vacation destination of choice is Turkey. My goal is to stay at every Best Western hotel in Turkey. So far I have stay at the Best Western Citadel Istanbul, Best Western President Istanbul and the Best Western Kahn Antalya. The best gift that I could give and I would like to receive as well is Rosetta Stone / Turkish. Turkey is an amazing country and I believe everyone should experience Turkish hospitality.

    By Larry on December 22, 2010 10:52 AM

    It would be nice to get a GPS or travel cards as we are getting ready to travel to Florida.

    By John S on December 22, 2010 10:59 AM

    I want an I phone so I can be updated with the new technology. Then I can not only travel, but stay in touch.

    By Karen Sutton on December 22, 2010 11:02 AM

    I'd love to get some new luggage, preferably in a color other than black.

    By Ivy on December 22, 2010 11:03 AM

    I would love to give my family a vacation somewhere warm this winter or somewhere unique such as an African Safari and go as a group and I would love a trip to Portugal.

    By J Klein on December 22, 2010 11:11 AM

    The gift of travel is one of the best gifts a person can receive! It is very unique and unexpected.

    By Joy on December 22, 2010 11:24 AM

    Spending time with family & friends is the best gift of all esp. while showing off my new Ipad would be special ! wink. :) Happy JOYous Holidays to all!

    By Barbara Messer on December 22, 2010 11:26 AM

    I would like to win a trip (with my Husband) to Germany next Christmas, so that we could spend the Holidays with our Godson and his family.

    By Cynthia Torres on December 22, 2010 11:28 AM

    An all expense paid hotel package to Kalahari Water Park for my family and for a friend's family.....so we can enjoy our kids and the company of our friends too. :)

    By Liz Komar on December 22, 2010 11:28 AM

    A chance to travel and be with family that is so far away.

    By Mary on December 22, 2010 11:33 AM

    We woke up the morning of departure to find our car battery was dead! My neighbor loaned us his portable generator for our trip, but I would love to have one of my own!

    By Nadra McClain on December 22, 2010 11:36 AM

    My daughter is in college, 150 miles away from me. I would love to win a gift card to stay in the Best Western Albany, so that I do not have to make 300 mile round trips every time I go to visit her. Thank you.

    By Preston on December 22, 2010 11:50 AM

    The travel gift I would really like would be... (I think a car would be cheating, and a phone with GPS would be too, even though I would use both for travel) ... I'l take some airline tickets to see my new day old nephew.

    By G. Walker on December 22, 2010 11:57 AM

    I certainly cannot travel without my GPS. I would love to give one to my son.

    By Laura on December 22, 2010 12:01 PM

    We are starting the holiday season by sending out goodies to family and friends. Times are tight and can not afford to travel to see family at 3.00 a gallon from Ohio to New York and then the hotel costs on top of that! We have been wanting to stay there for New Years Eve for years however we can not afford it! Winning a card to help with the costs would be wonderful. All I asked for this year was health and happiness. That is most important to me as I watch my family loose another member to cancer again this year at the holidays. Merry Christmas to all!

    By Steve on December 22, 2010 12:05 PM

    I would love a travel gift to Texas to see my brother. He moved there nearly 3 years ago and I haven't been able to see him since.

    By Ruth on December 22, 2010 12:08 PM

    How about a new DSLR Camera to capture all those travel memories!

    By cindy on December 22, 2010 12:19 PM

    Bose headsets to block out the airplane noise and sometimes the "noisy neighbors" is always a blessing for us road warriors. Clear passes are appreciated too to get us through the TSA lines faster.

    By Stephanie on December 22, 2010 12:21 PM

    I would love to give a vacation away to some friends so we could all escape the cold and go somewhere tropical for a weekend.

    By Barry Collins on December 22, 2010 12:25 PM

    I would like to receive a GPS to keep you from getting lost when I travel

    By Rhonda Eickholt on December 22, 2010 12:25 PM

    A nook or touch to read on the plane or airport. The rest of the gifts this year are homemade and spending time together. A gift card to bring in family would be wonderful

    By John on December 22, 2010 12:26 PM

    Dear Santa, A GPS for the harley & truck would be great1

    By Brenda Aschenbach on December 22, 2010 12:39 PM

    I would love to have gift cards for my sons and families. One lives in Virginia and the other in Texas. Both boys were here when I had heart surgery this past September, but we are unable to be together for the holidays due to the economy crunch.
    I would be so happy to repay them in some way for all the wonderful things they did for me to help speed my recovery.

    By carl on December 22, 2010 12:43 PM

    I travel alot and need new luggage every year.

    By wang tao on December 22, 2010 12:48 PM

    IPHONE 4

    By Dawn on December 22, 2010 12:48 PM

    I would love a trip to Chicago to see a couple of shows!

    By stephani on December 22, 2010 12:53 PM

    I'd like to get a radar detector since I seem to get stopped by the police for just about every little thing - including the latest, not dimming my brights while passing through a small ghost like town at 3 oclock in the morning. Go figure! (At least it was just a warning)!!

    By Robert Seigel on December 22, 2010 12:54 PM

    I think a good travel gift to recieve or get would be a good GPS or a laptop/notebook. That way you won't get lost, and you can occupy your downtime.

    By Nikki on December 22, 2010 1:04 PM

    I think the best travel gift to give is a PSP honestly. its small so easy to travel with, can access the internet, watch movies, and play games. So it is a very smart thing to take along on a long flight to keep entertained. What i would like plane tickets for me, my fiance' and my 4 month old to texas to see his grandmother for the holidays. My family is so spread out across the U.S. my child hardly knows any of my family because of that. so it would be nice to get the chance to take him to meet the rest of his family.

    By Ival Hobbs on December 22, 2010 1:11 PM

    I would love a Nook to travel with I could use it myself or load childrens books to read to my grandsons...

    By Mark Kusnir on December 22, 2010 1:19 PM

    safe journey home to see family

    By Margaret Scholz on December 22, 2010 1:26 PM

    I would like for my cousin Kenneth to return safe from his tour of duty in Afgahnistan. That would be a gift for my whole family.

    For myself, a trip to New Mexico to see my aunt and the beautiful state she lives in.

    By Janet M. Powers on December 22, 2010 1:27 PM

    My best travel gift would be four nights at the Best Western motel in Sun City, AZ so that I could afford to visit my father who just turned 100 in November.

    By Linda S on December 22, 2010 1:31 PM

    I would like to give and receive Nook Color readers for my family

    By Shirley on December 22, 2010 1:31 PM

    I'd like a GPS phone for travelling, I have no sense of direction !

    By Michael Ziemke on December 22, 2010 1:36 PM

    I would love for my wife & I to go on a nice fishing trip.

    By Margaret McFadyen on December 22, 2010 1:44 PM

    I would like a trip to San Diego.

    By CC on December 22, 2010 1:44 PM

    I would like to give the gift of airline miles so all 4 generations of the family can be together for a holiday in 2011

    By George E on December 22, 2010 1:47 PM

    I would love a guided fishing trip to Montana

    By Laurie D on December 22, 2010 1:58 PM

    I would like to cruise, fly, or even just relax in a hotel with roomservice somewhere. I just want a much needed vacation.

    By Jan M on December 22, 2010 2:00 PM

    The perfect gift for me would be a couple of nights in a luxury suite on the beach. A hot tub on the deck would be nice too!

    By Jeanette on December 22, 2010 2:02 PM

    The best travel gift would be a travel guide book and a travel gift certificate to go with it.

    By Dan on December 22, 2010 2:05 PM

    The best travel gift would be an IPOD loaded with all kinds of music.

    By Pushpa N on December 22, 2010 2:12 PM

    I would like to get a new Xbox 360 kinect for my daughter :)

    By Jacleen on December 22, 2010 2:14 PM

    The best travel gift would be free travel for a year.

    By Jason on December 22, 2010 2:15 PM

    I'd like to give the gift of airfare. My wife’s Uncle in Vietnam was unable to pass the interview with United States VISA officials to come visit family in the United States. His wife did and she is here now for a few months before she has to go back home. I’d like to give them the gift of airfare to get to Australia as it is a lot easier to pass the interviews to travel there and visit relatives. Due to the $150 USD interview fee (he took it twice and VISA officials denied him both times) they no longer have the money for two people to fly to another country.

    By Rebecca on December 22, 2010 2:17 PM

    I'd like some tickets to some Seattle Mariners games next year, along with lodging at the BW we found last year in Tukwila. A friend and I go once a year, but would love to go to a few more and even take my 3-year old niece who, like I, also loves Ichiro!!

    By Binoy on December 22, 2010 2:18 PM

    Of course a free travel gift certificate for 5 nights at Hawaii for me and my wife.

    By Scott on December 22, 2010 2:22 PM

    I would like to GIVE a backpack to my sheltered friend, to encourage him to get out a see/explore the real world.

    By John darnell on December 22, 2010 2:47 PM

    The perfect gift that I Would like to give a friend or loved one would be the BOSE NOISE CANCELING HEADPHONES. Whether listening to music or watching a video or just wonderful peace and quiet. For any type of travel its the #1 practicle gift. In fact, it would be nice to GET that as a gift for mysef :)

    By Julia Viger on December 22, 2010 2:55 PM

    An ipod would be great but an ipad would be FABULOUS!

    By Marsha on December 22, 2010 3:15 PM

    I would appreciate a Best Western gift card.

    By Mark on December 22, 2010 3:27 PM

    A perfect travel gift for the weary traveller (me!) would have to be an I-phone four. With all the applications available, you have a phone, a GPS, an e-reader, an alarm clock, an emergency light, an I-pod/MP3 player, internet access, a calculator, and a game device, just to name a few. Sort of like the Swiss Army knife of electronic devices. That and a ticket to the BCS championship game on January 10th to see my beloved Ducks play Auburn for all the marbles!

    By Adele on December 22, 2010 3:27 PM

    A week with my family and a few friends on a tropical island.

    By John & Betty Rossimel on December 22, 2010 3:28 PM

    I would like a trip for my wife and I of San Franisco and the Wine Country including the unique Napa Valley Wine Train and Southern Calfornia. We would so be looking forward to all the major sites, attractions and hidden gems along the way. We know this will be quite an adventure with remarkable scenery, national parks and prominent landmarks.

    By Kathy F on December 22, 2010 3:52 PM

    I'd love to get a small collection of interchangeable clothes (that are not black) that pack and travel famously in smaller bags, and at an affordable price. I love to travel!

    By Barbara on December 22, 2010 3:58 PM

    I'd love an i pad

    By Virginia Evans on December 22, 2010 4:25 PM

    I would love to receive an ipad.

    By John on December 22, 2010 4:26 PM

    As my travel is mainly leasure, a book or two is all I want.

    By Tyler Disley on December 22, 2010 4:27 PM

    I'd love for my family to be reconciled. That'd be the ultimate gift this holiday season for me.

    By Ronnie M. on December 22, 2010 4:29 PM

    I'd like to get a new Kindle for my son. We were on a trip recently and his camera, ipod, and Kindle got washed away when he was on the beach. Expensive lesson learned. Always buy travel insurance!

    By Herman on December 22, 2010 4:31 PM

    I'd love a trip to Disney for two

    By Sharon on December 22, 2010 4:38 PM

    I'd like a Kindle for my travels. I'd give my family and friends a debit card so they could get what they are wishing for.

    By Irene on December 22, 2010 4:39 PM

    My best travel gift would be a Best Western Gift Card or a Jet Blue Gift Card. I fly to New York City alot and I always stay at the Best Western President which as you know is pricey so these are the two things that I actually asked for this Christmas to help me out on my visits there. I asked for them last Christmas too but I never got either. I'll keep my fingers crossed that just maybe I'll have one under the tree this year.

    By Laurie on December 22, 2010 4:44 PM

    I would like a GPS for Christmas. I use my husband's when I travel places, which only works if he is not using it that particular day. It would be much more convenient if I had my own. 4v2nxr

    By Candace Thompson on December 22, 2010 4:47 PM

    I would love to drive down to Florida to visit my Sister. We have not seen each other in over 5 years.

    By Ellen on December 22, 2010 5:02 PM

    Wow, I'd just like the gift card of $250. to have it for Hotel cost when we do travel. Hotels, bills add to the cost of a vacation. This would be great to have to use for those bills.

    Thanks....BW.

    By Abraham Zorger on December 22, 2010 5:04 PM

    i would like to get a new laptop comuter for myself ..since my wife always uses it ..so i cant use it for whenver i want to use it ..

    By William R Thomas II on December 22, 2010 5:09 PM

    Going to Disney in January with the five year old twin grand kids. Could we use the prize money? You bet. Disney or bust.

    By Valerie on December 22, 2010 5:12 PM

    I would like to have a hair dryer and electric rollers that work in Europe.
    I would like travel books for the country I would like to see, and plenty of maps of the cities.

    Valerie

    By Lori F on December 22, 2010 5:14 PM

    I'd love a Synergy Green Chevy Camaro with sunroof, racing stripes and fantastic sound system so I could make my runs up and down the west coast in serious style! The GPS I'd use in it was actually my Christmas present two years ago....

    By Sharon Bokma on December 22, 2010 5:22 PM

    We could use a long weekend downtown Chicago (Best Western) and take in all the holiday festivities maybe even the New Year's Eve party.

    We work full time, take care of my Mom and are always giving to others. We are tired and need a couple's weekend.


    Sharon from Huntley

    By C. Hughes on December 22, 2010 5:35 PM

    My wish would be the travel gift cards. Then when we go somewhere most of the vacation would be prepaid, so we wouldn't have a big bill at the end of a relaxing time.

    By Caroline Bailey on December 22, 2010 5:39 PM

    I would like to give a gift of travel to an elderly neighbor who has not been on holiday for years since her hubby passed away.

    By Anne T. Kahn on December 22, 2010 5:55 PM

    The one travel gift that would be the very most use would be a Best Western gift card! It's something you can use anywhere in the world.

    By NORMA on December 22, 2010 5:56 PM

    ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MY HEALTH SO I CAN TRAVEL TO MY OLDEST GRANDSONS HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION..

    By Belinda Jobe on December 22, 2010 5:59 PM

    Travel cards and a Kindle would be the best travel gifts ever

    By Karen Hill on December 22, 2010 6:03 PM

    A Rand McNally road atlas of the US - mine is so tattered I can barely read it anymore!

    By Denise on December 22, 2010 6:07 PM

    a great gift for friends or family who travel often are gas gift cards or gift cards for car rentals. I want some myself!

    By Robert Love on December 22, 2010 6:14 PM

    Dear Santa: I would like a DPS

    By David G on December 22, 2010 6:15 PM

    I would love to receive a round-trip ticket to Australia. But, more realistically, a currency coverter kit would be nice.

    By L. Hubers on December 22, 2010 6:25 PM

    New lightweight luggage and an IPad for games, internet, and books all in one package.

    By Wendy Jensen on December 22, 2010 6:40 PM

    The greatest Christmas Present would be return tickets for my husband and I to Vanuatu where our daughter is presently working for the Red Cross. It is a beautiful, safe place - not like some she has been posted to - and we could stay with her.

    By Louise Sandberg on December 22, 2010 6:41 PM

    I'd like to go on an African Safari !!!! Wah-hoooooo !!! Live every day like it is your last !!!

    By Eleanor Remenda on December 22, 2010 6:41 PM

    Being that we live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the winters are so-o-o cold. I would really like a remote start for my vehicle.

    By Timo on December 22, 2010 7:08 PM

    I would love to have an IPOD Touch!!

    By Dianne Wilke on December 22, 2010 7:16 PM

    I would LOVE a Mexican vacation, delayed until late February when it's -20 degrees and your breath freezes.

    By Judith Y on December 22, 2010 7:17 PM

    Noise canceling ear buds would be perfect, if available!

    By Deb on December 22, 2010 7:26 PM

    Even though I have a GPS on my cell phone, it would be great to give one to friends and myself so that it can be installed on the car dashboard!

    By Adrian Kretler on December 22, 2010 7:32 PM

    I will be giving my husband a Mexican cruise out of San Diego and we will be staying at the Seven Seas Best Western as I am also giving him two $100 travel cards from Best Western. We stayed at this location about three years ago and they were great as are most of our experiences with the Best Western chain.

    By Anne on December 22, 2010 7:41 PM

    I want "Maui Revealed" to use to plan our trip to Maui.

    By Karen E. on December 22, 2010 7:50 PM

    I saw an I Pod Touch Pad the other day and fell in love. What a cool gadget!
    I have a HTC Smart phone and it's pretty neat, too. I'll definitely be using my smart phone while we're away on vacation in Mexico this winter, and again this spring when we stay at the Best Western in Vancouver.

    By Debbie W on December 22, 2010 7:53 PM

    I would love to give a trip to Yosemite at the Awahnee to my friend - so she could take me along. It's one of the most beautiful places. A Garmin GPS would be nice especially when I visit cities I'm not familiar with, to find a Best Western of course. Merry Christmas and a Wonderful Peaceful New Year!

    By DanCin Nichols on December 22, 2010 8:01 PM

    Luggage (Samsonite is the greatest) with the 360-degree SPINNER wheels. Travel is a breeze when you're wheeling through airports, parking lots and lodging.

    By Katrina on December 22, 2010 8:13 PM

    I would love to take my family on a Rocky Mountaineer Train Trip!

    By TLJohnston on December 22, 2010 8:22 PM

    I noticed many people wanting lots of fine things for Christmas. This year let's truly remember what the Christmas Holiday Season is all about, the birth of Christ our Savior.

    My wish is very simple. I want to give my youngest daughter a nice graduation gift of either a trip to Egypt, Alaskan Cruise, a Caribbean Cruise or a trip to Hawaii.

    Each of my children earned a trip and it is her time now. She will be heading off to college in the fall and I want to continue making memories for her. Because of my disabilities, I won't be around for too much longer and I just want to make this trip a happy time for her.

    God Bless each of you and Merry Christmas

    TJ

    By Beverly A. on December 22, 2010 8:44 PM

    I would like a Best Western Travel Card. I travel for a non profit organization to work with people who have neuropathy. Help with travel expenses is always needed.


    By Joan on December 22, 2010 8:47 PM

    WOW! I've never made a Christmas wish list ... I'm quite content, but I'm sure I would enjoy a laptop computer that I could take anywhere with me, to keep in touch with our family while we are away.

    By Alan on December 22, 2010 8:54 PM

    I would like to take my family on vacation in Europe with a Best Western Gift card in hand.

    By Judi on December 22, 2010 9:12 PM

    By Cynda on December 22, 2010 10:54 PM

    What I need is a new suitcase. Mine has wheels but is of the style that has the pull strap, and you know that thing does not follow you around just like your dog doesn't on it's leash. I'm not even asking for the 360 degree wheels. Just a simple one with a telescoping handle and some color or pattern that will scream at me on the baggage carousel.

    By Linda NImark on December 22, 2010 11:55 PM

    I would like good health, and that my back surgery turns out good.

    By Megan on December 23, 2010 12:25 AM

    I need a new (or used) Eagle Creek backpack to replace the one I have. It's taken me through Asia, Australia, Europe, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and the US and is on its last threads.

    By Marissa on December 23, 2010 12:36 AM

    I am giving a new roller suitcase to my daughter, so she will quit borrowing mine. I do not like the spinning wheels because it is easier on my wrist to push a bag. I like Samsonite bags the best.

    By Marcia on December 23, 2010 4:56 AM

    I would like to bring all my family here for the holidays. They are scattered all around the US and I miss them, especially this time of year.

    By Roy Sutton on December 23, 2010 5:50 AM

    We would like to go west to visit our sons.

    By Peggy C on December 23, 2010 6:09 AM

    I would love a plane trrip to see my grandson in SLC.

    By Liette on December 23, 2010 6:42 AM

    Travel gift cards!!!! I'm giving some this year and would love to get some!!!

    By Bob T on December 23, 2010 6:47 AM

    We plan on travelling to Newfoundland this summer. The perfect gift would be a travel guide of Newfoundland / Labrador to help us with the planning of our trip.

    By Rheal on December 23, 2010 7:00 AM

    I want to go to my sons PHD graduation in Sweden . Would love gift card for our stay

    By Jim H on December 23, 2010 7:41 AM

    A Best Western Gift Card would be a great Gift. It does not take up much room in Santa's sled and it does not weigh much which I'm sure Rudolph and the boys would appreciate!
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

    By Emily on December 23, 2010 7:42 AM

    I would like to get a Best Western Travel Card because I always stay at a BW when I travel during the year and it would help the vacation budget a lot!

    By georgetta on December 23, 2010 8:11 AM

    I would like a new camera

    By FCF on December 23, 2010 9:22 AM

    A Wii system with bowling, tennis, etc. -- for all-family entertainment and some occasional exercise to boot!

    By Angie on December 23, 2010 10:10 AM

    Best Western Travel Card for satisfies my travel needs!

    By Terri Hoshell on December 23, 2010 10:53 AM

    I'd love a kit that would allow me to take my shampoo, etc in my carry-on bags, that is easy to fill, sturdy, adn will never leak!

    By andrew bailey on December 23, 2010 11:23 AM

    By Robin Richey on December 23, 2010 12:50 PM

    I would love to take a trip to Spain with just me and my husband; and leave the kids with Grandma

    By Lynda Richard on December 23, 2010 1:37 PM

    My favourite travel gift would be the Best Western Travel Cards. I use them every chance I get! They never expire and you don't have to pre-book your room, so are great for road trips.

    By Judy Charbonneau on December 23, 2010 2:19 PM

    I would love an I pad or a B.W. travel card.

    By Linda D Brown on December 23, 2010 2:42 PM

    I would love to receive an iPad or BW Travel Card.

    By Patti T on December 23, 2010 3:02 PM

    I would love to travel to the East Coast to visit the sites where history was made in our great country! The museums and landmarks that tell the story of the US through the years! I can't walk as well as I used to, so I'd wish to take in as many of the sites as I can, before I can't travel anymore.

    By Gregory T on December 23, 2010 5:12 PM

    My choice for a Christmas gift this year would be a job, as I"ve been hunting for one for most of this year!

    By Woody Morris on December 23, 2010 5:12 PM

    I really like to receive Best Western Travel Cards so when I travel I know I will always be staying at one of the best motels in the industry!!

    By Carole on December 23, 2010 5:36 PM

    When the weather is cold and snowy in Pennsylvania this winter, I'd like a trip to warm and sunny climes!

    By connie watts on December 23, 2010 5:39 PM

    Best Western gift cards would be the best gift. Our family likes to travel to different locations in Ontario. After a long day of driving or activities, its nice to have a great place to relax for the night.

    By AnnMarie on December 23, 2010 5:44 PM

    The best travel gift I could give would be to both my daughters who have to travel on the NYS thruway to and from college, would be train tickets. That way I know they're safe and not having to drive, especially in snow storms.

    By Kathleen on December 23, 2010 7:04 PM

    The best travel gift is 2 plane tickets to somewhere in the world that is new and exciting, preferably near water. This would be a gift for my husband. To make it even better would be 4 tickets rather than 2 so our long time friends and wonderful travel buddies could join us.

    By Barbara on December 23, 2010 8:13 PM

    The best travel gift for me is Best Western gift cards so I can use them as time allows.

    By Linda Smith on December 23, 2010 9:59 PM

    The gift i would love to give my husband is a trip to Alaska. This has been a dream of his for several years and i know we would both enjoy a relaxing view of the nature Alaska has to offer. Best Western always has the best places to offer in many of the locations i travel and i look forward to many more Best Western stays.

    By John Chamberlain on December 23, 2010 10:48 PM

    A GPS so I can get from Best Western to Best Western without getting lost.

    By Linda on December 23, 2010 11:19 PM

    I plan to give my daughter a duffel, so she has her own piece of luggage. I'd like to give my husband a Kindle for his extended business trips as books can be a bit awkward. I also want to give my son a cellphone so he can complain about us to his friends when on the road to swim meets. Teenagers!

    By JoAnn on December 24, 2010 12:51 AM

    Would like a new GPS.

    By Sarah R. on December 24, 2010 5:07 AM

    A travel converter for my mother's bi-pap machine would make our next trip to Mayo Clinic a little more comfortable for my mom. My 67 year old mother, Sandra, was diagnosed with ALS this past March. Our family has been forever changed. I try to find the little things that will make her life more comfortable so she can have some quality of life. She uses her bi-pap machine daily, so a travel converter would be an excellent travel gift for her. If you read this and believe in prayer, please pray for my mom. I hope she will be strong enough in 3.5 weeks to make the trip to Mayo Clinic for the next ALS Clinic. A converter might make this happen. She is the best mom! Merry Christmas to all!

    By Nicole on December 24, 2010 7:07 AM

    Since the worst part of traveling is the traveling part, I think an Ipad would be a fabulous gift to alleviate the tedium as it would cover all entertainment and communication needs on the road. As far as comfort goes, lets have a round of applause for noise cancelling headphones, quality neck pillows, and wheeled carryons that don't tip over and have a pocket for your ziploced liquids handy. Other than that, if I could give them, time and health for my family and friends so we could enjoy traveling and spending time together.

    By Ed Livezey on December 24, 2010 7:08 AM

    A new 2011 Ford Explorer for improved gas milage over the old 2003 so I can still afford to travel comfortably!

    By Dan K. on December 24, 2010 7:13 AM

    I would like an IPAD for my family when traveling. The IPAD can be used to entertain the kids while on long car rides. It then can be used when you get to a destination to find places to eat and local attractions in the area. It is the perfect gift for anyone who travels. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

    By Sue W on December 24, 2010 7:42 AM

    I would love to receive a simple, but roomy overnight bag that I could use for weekend travel.

    By Nancy Fugleberg on December 24, 2010 7:51 AM

    I would love to receive a family vacation cruise so we may spend time together before my son heads back to college!

    By Ken McGee on December 24, 2010 8:25 AM

    Sweet Christmas, I most definitely need a GPS for my travels.

    By George Hohenwater on December 24, 2010 8:34 AM

    we are having our 50 th weding in july,and would love to go on a cruise ,I have lost my sight in the last year and my wife has taken over all the work around the house she needs a rest .

    By Lesia on December 24, 2010 8:41 AM

    A golfing package get away to someplace warm!

    By Joan on December 24, 2010 9:02 AM

    My husband has just survived emergency surgery and a life-threatening illness but is recovering. We'd sure like to return to Hawaii which we had to cancel in September.

    By Jean on December 24, 2010 9:03 AM

    Double points for Best Western stays during the holidays

    By johnny on December 24, 2010 9:59 AM

    a trip to Legazpi City, Philippines would be nice. Was there this past Feb, where the weather was sunny and in the 80-90 degree range, while back home in NC, there was snow, ice, and cold cold wind. So my best travel gift would be 2 airline tics to sunny, beautiful, and friendly, Legazpi City, Philippines

    By MJ on December 24, 2010 10:42 AM

    For travel, we really like to restaurant gift cards such as Darden, Applebee's and Chili's to use for lunches on the road.

    By Mo on December 24, 2010 10:54 AM

    A most boring item, but most necessary also: gasoline! My car still uses it, so a gift card for that item would be wonderful... thanks for the contest.

    By Karolyn S on December 24, 2010 11:16 AM

    Just a vacation away from the stress of a 4 family household in a 3 bedroom house that includes 2 one year old boys.

    By Kimberli D on December 24, 2010 11:36 AM

    I would love a free stay anywhere in Italy at your Bestwestern Hotels! I have stayed at your hotels in Italy and they are incredible!!!!!!
    I love Bestwestern!!!!!

    By Valarie H on December 24, 2010 1:21 PM

    I do a lot of road trips, so gas gift cards would help a lot.

    By Angelina Aiken on December 24, 2010 1:59 PM

    Go to China!

    By Sharon K on December 24, 2010 2:11 PM

    I would like to get a new digital camera for this next year when we head out for a three week vacation to visit Glacier National Park, the Yellowstone National Park, then back to home. The memories on film would be great to show our grandchildren.

    By gerald haley on December 24, 2010 4:13 PM

    I would like to use the travel card to stay in the Best Western hotel in the city in south Texas where my wife and I started our life together fifty years ago this June.

    By Jeff on December 24, 2010 4:37 PM

    I'd like to go back to the island of Rota in the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands. Wonderful island with very little commercial development.

    By Ann C on December 24, 2010 6:41 PM

    Would love to have the luxury of a 3night-stay in the downtown Best Western on Union Avenue in Nashville, Tennessee, and tickets to the February 14 production at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

    By Ann Chambless on December 24, 2010 6:49 PM

    Would love to have a February 3-night stay at the Downtown Best Western
    on Union Avenue in Nashville, Tennessee, plus 2 tickets to Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center on February 14, 2011

    By RICHARD B. on December 24, 2010 6:57 PM

    A best western travel card.

    By Martin on December 24, 2010 7:26 PM

    I would like a travel cable pack for the cell phone to carry on trips. Car & wall charger, USB cable & audio cable to plug into rental cars etc. That would keep from having to gather normal usage stuff from our cars/home etc.

    By Tomas on December 24, 2010 9:24 PM

    I'm planning a LONG Harley trip next summer across the U.S. and Canada, and would like nothing better than the Road Tech Zumo 665 to help guide me across the U.S., into Canada, and back home to California! Thanks for the opportunity!

    By Marlene on December 25, 2010 1:23 AM

    I would love anything related to travel. A GPS for my car or motorcycle would be very nice. A place to stay in Hawaii would be most appreciated.

    By paul w on December 25, 2010 3:45 AM

    Looking to get the much rumored Verizon I-phone when available in the next couple months

    By Vicki on December 25, 2010 9:35 AM

    If I had to pick a tangible 'travel' gift, absolute best is a GPS while traveling! Detours, bad weather, traffic hazards...all, no problem when you trust your navigator! Best gift of all is what God gave us by sending His Son, Jesus...and family celebrating His birth...and the true meaning of Christmas!

    By Candy on December 25, 2010 1:30 PM

    I think a GPS is the best travel gift. You can use it whether driving, walking or hiking.

    By Candy on December 25, 2010 1:32 PM

    I think a GPS is the perfect gift!

    By Sue on December 25, 2010 3:45 PM

    The travel cards would be my choice. It would be nice to get one to give and one to use myself.

    By Meg on December 25, 2010 4:09 PM

    I'd like a certificate for a massage!

    By Michael on December 25, 2010 9:30 PM

    I would like an ipad

    By Gary Leather man on December 26, 2010 8:47 AM

    It would be a GPS for our motorcyle rides, But my wife said I would have to listen to the directions

    By Jan on December 26, 2010 10:59 AM

    I have given, and would like to receive, a Tom-Tom GPS.

    By Ronald Devey on December 26, 2010 11:59 AM

    I would like to send my 4 great grandchildren and their parents to Disneyworld

    By Denise Asselin on December 26, 2010 3:19 PM

    2 hard sided, waterproof carry on roller bags, with 4 wheels - one for me and one for my husband. Ideal for air travel as well as motorcycle travel

    By Lorali on December 26, 2010 3:41 PM

    Truth be told I would L♥VE a Best Western gift card!!!

    By Christine Patterson on December 26, 2010 10:20 PM

    Best Travel present, AAA Plus Membership. Awesome discounts and amazing coverage.

    By Irene on December 26, 2010 10:52 PM

    I'd love to give my family a vacation in Alaska and give the same to myself.

    By jack on December 26, 2010 11:00 PM

    I'd give my family a trip to the southwest and hope to receive the same.

    By jazcat on December 27, 2010 2:28 AM

    I would love a trip to New Orleans this year.

    By Susan Richardson on December 27, 2010 8:06 AM

    I love road trips so besides a gift card for fuel, I would love a gift basket or tote filled with items to keep in my trunk just in case. Blanket, bottled water, snacks, flashlight, crank radio, batteries, flares, books or magazines.

    By James Flanery on December 27, 2010 8:11 AM

    The gift I think would be the greatest is the gift of presence, either my daughter and her husband (with our first grandchild on the way) coming here, or us being able to visit there. From Illinois to California is a long, long way away from home.

    By George L. on December 27, 2010 8:43 AM

    Cheap airfares to and hotel rates in Phoenix so I can attend a friend's 104th birthday party.

    By Glenda Biedler on December 27, 2010 8:47 AM

    Thank-you Best Western for the opportunity to win something! We would be happy to stay at any Best Western hotel in the world. We are planning a trip next year to Germany and it would be awesome to stay at our favourite hotel on the other side of the world from us.

    Peace & Happiness!

    By GERMAN MANRIQUE on December 27, 2010 8:49 AM

    GPS will be great

    By Val L on December 27, 2010 8:49 AM

    Airline tickets so I can fly in and surprise my granddaughter on her birthday. We live across the country from all family and have to pick and choose which holidays we can fly to visit. It would be nice not to have to choose!

    By Ken W. on December 27, 2010 8:50 AM

    I like to give and receive restuarant gift cards. I can use them on a road trips or they can make life easier for my wife and kids while I'm away on business.

    By Jacqueline MacNeil on December 27, 2010 8:51 AM

    A round trip for two to London, Engand, from LAX, business class for a week with two tickets to see "Billy Elliot" on stage while there.

    By Natalie Bickert on December 27, 2010 8:52 AM

    Besides travelling with family, some of the best travel gifts are: Name brand sunglasses, a PSP, a bathing suit, Snowboard gear, an ipod touch or travel gift cards.

    By Tom M on December 27, 2010 8:53 AM

    I would love to recieve a nice get away trip for 2 to Orlando, FL.

    Sort of a second Honeymoon type trip for my partner and I
    to go on.

    Encluded would be hotel and air and car.

    By Glenda Biedler on December 27, 2010 8:53 AM

    Thank-you Best Western for the opportunity to win something! We would be happy to stay at any Best Western hotel in the world. We are planning a trip next year to Germany and it would be awesome to stay at our favourite hotel on the other side of the world from us.

    Peace & Happiness!

    By Jackie on December 27, 2010 8:55 AM

    The Vera Bradley travel bag with the cosmetics compartments is the best !!

    By Lisa B. on December 27, 2010 8:55 AM

    My dream travel Christmas present would be a pop-up camper w/ electric, A/C & heat and comfy bedding! We would love to be able to travel the U.S. to eat, shop for antiques, research (genealogy), and see historical sites. Of course we would stay at a Best Western about every third night for a nice hot shower, comfortable bed and TV to catch up on the news!

    By Jarod Gryba on December 27, 2010 8:55 AM

    Would love to go on a trip to Kelowna again this Spring/2011

    By GarthB on December 27, 2010 8:56 AM

    best travel gift would be skype credits to call home.

    By Martine Villemure on December 27, 2010 8:56 AM

    I love... I stay at Montreal at the bestwestern for 2 nights and the good hotel and the best city

    By Linda Owens on December 27, 2010 8:56 AM

    I wanted a laptop or Ipad but didn't get either.

    By bob seluk on December 27, 2010 8:56 AM

    I would love to get my wife a car to replace her suv lease that expires this February.

    By joel montenegro on December 27, 2010 8:57 AM

    I gave my girlfriend a Kindle, because whenever we drive somewhere on vacation she likes to read while sitting in the car.

    By aprilmae on December 27, 2010 8:58 AM

    The ideal travel gift today would be "SNOW TIRES" so we could drive to the nearest Best Western to get out of this weather!!

    By Cynthia Nichols on December 27, 2010 8:59 AM

    Preparedness for travel is a flashlight which runs on battery or you can crank wind it if the batteries go dead. Perfect for suitcase carry-on. Or for vehicles the flashlight comes with seat-belt cutter, glass breaker, radio, compass, and siren.

    By Matt B on December 27, 2010 8:59 AM

    I gave my wife a GPS for Christmas. A must have to find her way there and back.

    By theresa Chartrand on December 27, 2010 9:01 AM


    It would be such a pleasure to go on a cruise with my husband.

    By Daphne Brown on December 27, 2010 9:03 AM

    I think that a good GPS would make a great gift....although it needs to be up to date, or you might end up going in circles with all the new road constructions going on! I also think that gift cards for Best Western stays would be appreciated by all!
    I would simply love to have the new IPad!
    But I didn't get any of the above items this year..... :(

    By Mary K on December 27, 2010 9:04 AM

    I would love to have new IPOD touch with lots of memory so that when I am traveling I will have something to do to pass the time in the airport. And, since I don't have any $$ to do any traveling right now, some $$ for that would be great also!

    By Martine Villemure on December 27, 2010 9:05 AM

    C'est toujours super de choisir votre hotel

    By David longnecker on December 27, 2010 9:05 AM

    Since I travel to new places everytime I perform audits for work I often have to use on-line map searches. My ideal gift would be a Garmin or Tom-Tom navigator. This I received for Christmas but the really neat thing is my wife programed all the Best Westerns Hotel I stay in Washington State. I only need to plug in the address where I need to go and after work hit the Best Western Hotel that my reservations are at to get me home for the night.

    By Allen Ichide on December 27, 2010 9:06 AM

    My idea of a great holiday gift would be a two day at any best western hotel with rental car packages and a tour of the local area hot spots. All you need to do is just relax and enjoy!

    By Daphne Brown on December 27, 2010 9:06 AM

    The new Ipad would be a great gift! It lets you do anything you need to do while on the road!
    I also would have liked to have a Best Western gift card in my stocking....maybe next year!

    By G Travelbea on December 27, 2010 9:06 AM

    We loaned our GPS to our son and his wife, and we think they would love one of their own. A great gift.

    By Martine Villemure on December 27, 2010 9:08 AM

    J'aime les promotions que je reçoit. Elles sont toujours pratique pour tous mes déplacements

    By Jamey W on December 27, 2010 9:09 AM

    I would like to have a bicycle trainer so I can ride/workout with my bike indoors all winter and be ready for some great mountain rides when the snow melts.

    By Annie on December 27, 2010 9:10 AM

    I think it's a portable DVD player... so the kids don't complain as much as to when we're getting there! That way we can do longer trips and more often since mom and dad aren't as 'tired' of this ;)

    By Sue on December 27, 2010 9:10 AM

    I printed out a one night's stay at a Best Western (travel card) for my Hubby's Christmas birthday and put it in a gift bag with a hat, gloves, hand warmers... for a fun family sledding outing! We'd love to get to stay at a Best Western for a longer stay! :)

    By Michael VanVelkenburg on December 27, 2010 9:13 AM

    A good gift for people traveliong would be a map of the city and things to see and places to go and gift card like VISA or MC or AMEX that can be used everywhere.

    By Lisa Wolf Johnson on December 27, 2010 9:14 AM

    A Kindle with several works of fiction plus travel guidebooks would be an excellent travel gift, especially for those days when there are travel delays and otherwise boring downtime.

    By donald foerster on December 27, 2010 9:14 AM

    Since we live in different citites I would love to take my wife, my two sons and two daughters-in-law on a vacation out west.

    By carmen on December 27, 2010 9:14 AM

    I just bought a Tom Tom and love ti so would be happy to give one to my friends and family.

    By Sybil on December 27, 2010 9:14 AM

    I would love to recieve a gift card from Best Western that I could use at any Best Western Hotel when I travel.

    By Bashir V on December 27, 2010 9:17 AM

    Round trip airline tickets for me and my wife to travel to Seattle, Washington. Also Best Western gift card to stay in Seattle.

    By Marie on December 27, 2010 9:17 AM

    I would like to give (and receive) a trip for two to Scotland. It is time for my Scottie husband to find his roots. And I want to share that experience with him. Travel has been good for our relationship over the last 31 years.

    By Melanie on December 27, 2010 9:18 AM

    I like to give ski cards to family to encourage us to go on ski trips together.

    By Linda Brown on December 27, 2010 9:18 AM

    The Best Travel gift is travel. My husband and I forgo traditional gifts for Christmas and other special days. Our gift to each other is selecting 3 to 4 weeks of great adventure travel. (It may soun like alot of time and money, but just think about how much money is spent on gifts we never use). We spend quality time planning our trips and truly enjoy spending time exploring our vacation destinations when we arrive. I guess you could say that the best travel gift is the gift of time we spend with each other.

    By Sue on December 27, 2010 9:18 AM

    This year for my hubby's Christmas Birthday I gave him a giftcard, an overnight to a Best Western, with a warm hat, gloves, and handwarmers. So we could go sledding as a family! :)

    By Ann Campbell on December 27, 2010 9:19 AM

    I love giving and receiving gift cards for travel, restaurants and hotels for all occasions. I especially enjoy the Island Palms in San Diego. A Best Western gift card would be great!

    By DCournoyer on December 27, 2010 9:22 AM

    What I would really like, would be an Altimeter, Barometer, Thermometer and Compass Watch. This would be great for all the mointain hiking trips planned with my kids for the coming year.
    Thanks

    By Kelly on December 27, 2010 9:22 AM

    I would love an e-reader either from Amazon.ca. I have researched it but it is still a little too costly for me to purchase!

    By DCournoyer on December 27, 2010 9:23 AM

    What I would really like, would be an Altimeter, Barometer, Thermometer and Compass Watch. This would be great for all the mointain hiking trips planned with my kids for the coming year.
    Thanks

    By L Isley on December 27, 2010 9:23 AM

    The best travel gift any time of year, is seeing family you don't get to see very often. It's been over 5 years since my gal's seen any of her family so a trip to Hawaii, California or Texas would be nice. I would like to be able to take her to any one of these places. Until then pictures, e-mails, letters and quite fishing trips together to a not so well known lake will have to do.

    By Glenn on December 27, 2010 9:25 AM

    An IPad

    By Cris Ellis on December 27, 2010 9:25 AM

    The perfect gift is a gift certificate to the Best Western Resort Hotel in Palm Desert, CA. Then I could have my family all together for a fun time. If you can't have fun in Palm Desert, you can't have fun anywhere. So much to do, and the hotel is located close to everything.

    By Lynne Peirce on December 27, 2010 9:26 AM

    I asked for and received a book light that attaches to my book so I can read without a lamp or overhead light. Great for traveling at night, especially in the car!

    By Dean Storey on December 27, 2010 9:27 AM

    We gave our adult kids framed maps of the world and pins so they can track and display their travels.

    By Pat Hightower on December 27, 2010 9:29 AM

    I'd love a couple of weeks in Hawaii. A portable GPS and I Pad would be a wonderful benefit gift.

    By darrel on December 27, 2010 9:30 AM

    i enjoy getting travel cards and ideas on diffrent places to travel as my kids are in there early teens and want to experiance as much as posible before they move on in life.

    By Dan on December 27, 2010 9:30 AM

    The best Christmas gift would be a trip to Isreal (Stay at the Tel Aviv BW) and visit Bethleham on Christmas Eve to see, experience and feel the true meaning of Christmas!

    By drbob on December 27, 2010 9:30 AM

    I would like a road trip to NM for Kris wedding in April and an extended trip to MI to spend some time with Chris (my Nephew)

    By Peg on December 27, 2010 9:31 AM

    A gas card to keep our Prius on the road for a cross America road trip...and a book of hikling trails in the glove box!

    By Helen Cressman on December 27, 2010 9:31 AM

    The best gift for anyone at any time of the year is a Best Western Gift Card. For people who like to travel, it's a great idea. You can always rely on Best Western hotels to be a great place to stay (they are our favourite) and the cards can be used both for lodging and even meals (if the hotel has a restaurant) or gift shop purchases. Also you can get the card in various denominations so it's possible to find one you can afford.

    By Tom on December 27, 2010 9:33 AM

    A week in Bora Bora with family and friends.

    By Dan on December 27, 2010 9:34 AM

    We're on our way from Barrie, Ontario to New York City to bring in the New Year with Gov't Mule at the Beacon.!

    By Geraldine Fabb on December 27, 2010 9:34 AM

    I would like a neck pillow to help me be more comfortable while on a long trip.

    By David R on December 27, 2010 9:37 AM

    For a long trip, I would like an i-Pad or similar reader stocked with some good mysteries.

    By Sheryl on December 27, 2010 9:38 AM

    I think a GPS is a great travel gift so you don't get lost.
    Also, an Ameribag to carry your stuff without killing your back!

    By william hawes on December 27, 2010 9:40 AM

    i like gift cards and gps, and psp to play on the way , and best western gift cards ,for my free stay

    By Sue on December 27, 2010 9:41 AM

    I would like a gift certificate for a fine meal out!

    By Angela Shepard on December 27, 2010 9:44 AM

    I would love to get a GPS and give my son a portable DVD player.

    By yulia on December 27, 2010 9:46 AM

    We are going to Disneyland and staying 4 nights at Best Western .The best location the best place to stay. We always stay in Best Western wherever we go.

    By Debbie Hennek on December 27, 2010 9:46 AM

    The best gift? A NOA Portable Weather Radio, of course! Anywhere you are, it scans and picks up the closest weather reports!

    By Jean Sleater on December 27, 2010 9:47 AM

    An ideal travel gift for a frequent traveler is a Kindle or similar E-reader. When traveling on extensive trips I have been taking 5 or 6 books along which take up a lot of luggage room. With an E-reader you can take hundreds of books in one small space.

    By James Wright on December 27, 2010 9:49 AM

    I`d love to get gift cards for Best Western, with an open choice of where I would use them

    By deborah comay on December 27, 2010 9:53 AM

    netbook

    By Rachel Rose on December 27, 2010 9:53 AM

    A gift certificate would be awesome.

    By Jim Szatkowski on December 27, 2010 9:54 AM

    Adroid phone with GPS and all the goodies

    By Debra Bryson on December 27, 2010 9:55 AM

    We recently were able to travel to New Zealand - a trip that took years to plan for - and while there stayed at the Best Western outside of Auckland - the people running the hotel were so friendly and helpful to us. Hotels are an important part of any trip, so, getting great service is certainly one of our top priorities - no matter where we travel....

    By Mike L. on December 27, 2010 9:57 AM

    The travel gift I'd like is gas gift cards. I'd do anything to fill my tank without emptying my wallet.

    By jim wise on December 27, 2010 10:02 AM

    I would like hotel rooms for our youth group as they travel on their annual mission trip helping the needy.

    By Diane on December 27, 2010 10:03 AM

    Best Western Gift Cards would be great.

    By Debra Bryson on December 27, 2010 10:04 AM

Hotels are an important part of any trip, so, getting great service is certainly one of our top priorities - no matter where we travel.....................We would love an ipod to be able to stay in touch with our families. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2011 to everyone!!!

    By Deb Idiens on December 27, 2010 10:06 AM

    We love to travel and one thing I am drooling over that have yet to purchase is an ipad. I am envious of those watching movies and reading as they fly through the skies and that would be the perfect gift.

    By Geri Schneider on December 27, 2010 10:06 AM

    My choice would be Best Western Travel Cards so I could use them wherever I travel

    By CST on December 27, 2010 10:08 AM

    I stay in a hotel 90-120 per year for work, and another 14-21 for pleasure. My travel schedule is quite hectic, so I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to travel planning -- particularly travel packing. I haven't checked a bag in years, even though most of my trips are 3+ weeks, and I have plenty of work items that I need to carry.

    For technology:
    -Netbook (when travelling for business or pleasure). In and out of your bag with ease for Airport Security screening.
    -Ipad (for strictly personal travel). A long battery life makes it great for watching movies. Wireless access makes it great to check the occasional email, or get directions.
    -GPS ANd make sure the maps are updated prior to your trip! I can't tell you how many wild goose chases and outdated GPS can take you on. Businesses close; new roads get built -- you need updated maps!

    For practicality:
    -Prepare a completely separate toiletry bag for travel only. Stock it with the necessities. That way, when there is an amazing hotel deal or seat sale, you can just grab the bag and go. Reversely, when you return home from your trip, you don't have to unpack right away because your toothbrush is still in the bathroom waiting for you. So my ideal travel gift would be a 3 ounce version of all of my toiletry necessities!

    I'm nothing, if not practical.

    My husband recently came home from Iraq and we havnt been able to take a trip and get away together, so I would love to give him a romantic getaway together. I already got what I wanted, my husband's home!

    By Matt Wilson on December 27, 2010 10:15 AM

    All I want for Christmas is a Blackberry for instant connections when I travel.

    By katrina mccauley on December 27, 2010 10:15 AM

    I HAVE TWO. A PORTABLE DVD PLAYER TO WATCH WHILE ON STAND BY AND OF COURSE A GPS AFTER I ARRIVE.

    By D Tindale on December 27, 2010 10:15 AM

    I am a proud grandmother of 5 and I just love to make those grandchildren happy. My favorite present would be a stay at Niagara Falls Bestwestern for a few days for the kids, parents and us the grandparents. The hotel on Lundays Lane is fantastic for kids, parents and grandparents. It has a great pool, hot tub and games etc. just for kids and family.

    By james kahr on December 27, 2010 10:17 AM

    Gift cards are welcomed. A GPS would be most appreciated and useful.
    A fine quality bottle of white wine would be savored. An intimate evening at a preferred Hotel with swimming pool and jaquzzi would be heaven.
    Shall I continue? Life is wonderful with giving and receiving.
    Enjoy the holidays.

    By B.L.B. on December 27, 2010 10:17 AM

    I would love to be able to give my family all-expenses paid cruises, like my grandpa did for us. That would be the best.

    By Lori on December 27, 2010 10:18 AM

    I think what would be a nice gift to give would be a weekend hotel stay to a family in need one who really can't afford a vacation or much of anything else, or the other thing would be a GPS so that we could always find our way no matter what.

    By Vickie Verhoff on December 27, 2010 10:20 AM

    My husband & I would love to see our friends in Florida. We miss them so very much. Even more this time of year.

    By Leanne Anderson on December 27, 2010 10:22 AM

    I love little getaways. Having a small suitcase and extra spending money is the best. We are planning a family trip after hockey season is over and gave the kids US money to start their spending money stash. Destination unknown, Cant wait for April.

    By Duc on December 27, 2010 10:24 AM

    A porche 911 cabriolet will be welcome.

    By sue on December 27, 2010 10:26 AM

    I think a visit from my family would be so heart warming. They could stay at Best Western. Our house is too small for all of them. Then we could get together. Its been a long, too long, time.

    By Rusty K. on December 27, 2010 10:26 AM

    The best travel gift for 2011 is gift cards! Cards for Best Western, so I don't have to overload my credit card; gift cards for gas, so I don't have to use my credit card in an unsecure place; and gift cards for food, so I don't have to carry as much cash! It's all about keeping the debt down and the security up!

    By Mary B on December 27, 2010 10:32 AM

    A toy, something to take you away from the everyday.

    By Marcia D on December 27, 2010 10:35 AM

    My husband and I stay very frequently at a Best Western in PA. Best Western Travel Cards are the perfect gift for us!

    By Gary Rasmussen on December 27, 2010 10:37 AM

    a GPS that would allow you to make reservations at hotels.

    By Scott H. on December 27, 2010 10:39 AM

    I would Love to give my wife an Apple IPad to ring in the New Year with wireless capability. She is an unselfish person who thinks of others before herself. I know this gift would make her 2011 a fantastic year and bring the biggest smile to her face!!!

    By B.R. on December 27, 2010 10:39 AM

    With so many choices, apps for getting to the destinations, for selecting accommodations for the destination of choice, and for navigating at the destination could be the perfect gift for your favorite iPhone or Smart Phone user! Alternately, a tried and true gift card that could be used for any part of the journey would be most welcome. Of course, Best Western would be at the top of the accommodation list!

    By lisa on December 27, 2010 10:42 AM

    A GPS to keep from getting lost.

    By Tracey S on December 27, 2010 10:50 AM

    I think the perfect travel gift would be an Ipad. I could read my favorite book, watch a movie, keep up to my email etc, all in one small pkg.

    By Mrs. Mary P. Williams on December 27, 2010 10:53 AM

    A gift I would like to give is a travel gift card for my grandson who will be coming stateside for leave from his tour of duty in Iraq. I would like to give him the gift of relaxing at his favorite beach hotel. We took him to the Best Western Cavalier Inn and Resort in San Simeon, CA, years ago when he was a little boy and have pictures of him laughing as he ran in and out of the surf on the beach, and I would like for him to be able to go back there again.

    Thank you,

    By Miriam Williams on December 27, 2010 10:55 AM

    I would love to get an ipad - either as a gift, or something I purchase for myself.

    By Roger G on December 27, 2010 10:57 AM

    I'd like to give my wife a trip to Scotland.

    By HENRY NICOL on December 27, 2010 10:57 AM

    First choice 2 round trip tickets to Europe with free nights in a Best Western hotel.

    Second choice 2 round trip tickets from Denver, CO to Arizona, N.M. to visit the Grand Canyon and stay in a Best western hotel close to the airport in Arizona.

    Third choice a cruise for 2 people to the Caribbean and a stay for one night at a Best Western hotel.

    By Al G on December 27, 2010 10:57 AM

    I love to travel so gift cards for motels and hotels, cruises, gasoline, etc. would be perfect for me.

    By Tom Uhle on December 27, 2010 10:57 AM

    For travel I hope to get ankle-less athletic socks. I wear them in the hotel room when I get up in the morning, then later use them to jog if weather allows. Merry Christmas!

    By B.B. on December 27, 2010 11:05 AM

    I would love to be able to visit my boyfriend in Kansas City,for New Years Eve, i lost my job just after Thanksgiving and cant afford to visit him

    By Tom on December 27, 2010 11:06 AM

    A history book to better understand the region I am travelling

    By Jennifer K on December 27, 2010 11:06 AM

    If you can't afford any expensive gadgits, books are very helpful way to pass the time. Though people are right about the ipad or laptop. You can do more than just read. We usually just bring our laptop, then we can research our trip, play games, & google map areas we want to familiarize ourselves with, & bookmark coupons & deals we can utilize. If I find a coupon I just print it off when we get to the hotel. We have also found from past experiences that a GPS also comes in very handy when driving around your vacation destinations. Either items make great travel gifts.

    By Mary Bottoms on December 27, 2010 11:10 AM

    I would love to take our family on a cruiseand share those memories together always.

    By Sheila on December 27, 2010 11:13 AM

    Travel tickets to get the whole family together in one place for an old fashioned simple Christmas would be the best holiday gift for me!

    By Tom Pearl on December 27, 2010 11:16 AM

    The best Christmas gift would be to have all our children and grandchildren to be able to be together at one time.

    By Andre Lord on December 27, 2010 11:17 AM

    My best travel gift idea would be to take my wife on a trip to her favorite destination, Australia. It is a wish of hers to see this country once in her life. We have heard so much about Australia that we would love to experience all its beauties, at least once in our life.

    By Henry Nicol on December 27, 2010 11:24 AM

    $250 TRAVEL GIFT CARD FROM BEST WESTERN FOR HOTEL STAYS

    By Keith Cunningham on December 27, 2010 11:25 AM

    The best travel gift would be Best Western gift cards

    By ru on December 27, 2010 11:28 AM

    would love to win anything as im usually unlucky with such things

    By carol on December 27, 2010 11:29 AM

    The best travel gift was one my husband gave me - it was a Nintendo DS. The games and puzzles help to distract me when we fly anywhere. The DS is small and easy to carry in my purse. I LOVE it.
    As for travel, we would both love to see Denmark and Norway. I was very pleasantly surprised to see a Best Western in Copenhagen.

    By Mary on December 27, 2010 11:31 AM

    I would love to get a day at the spa.

    By David Fairbrother on December 27, 2010 11:33 AM

    Ever since I became friends with a person who grew up on a tiny island in the South Pacific Ocean I have always wanted to take a trip with my wife to Fiji or the Cook Islands. I would love to find a rustic resort on a tiny island.

    By Nikki on December 27, 2010 11:35 AM

    I have 4 children and gave each of them a weekend away as their Christmas gift. The Best Western Gift Card was a great idea. The 2 older children are going away with their families and I am taking the 2 younger children. It's fun to see them planning their trips and looking forward to their getaways. My husbands gift was a weekend away without any of the children!

    By Margi on December 27, 2010 11:38 AM

    I would like to give travel cards to family and friends.

    By Ellie Muelrath on December 27, 2010 11:41 AM

    One of the greatest travel gifts I could give this holiday season would be a California State Parks pass. There are so many beautiful parks in the United States, and California alone has over 200! No matter what part of the state you are in there is sure to be a park nearby, and my family and I make sure to visit a park every time we take a trip. My favorite are Armstrong woods and the coastal parks in Sonoma, Mendocino, and Monterey counties. This is a gift that would continue to give all year long, as well as allow us to pass on our love of California's wild places to our three children.

    By Melinda Cooper on December 27, 2010 11:42 AM

    I would love to bring my family together for my son's wedding this summer.

    By Phil Muelrath on December 27, 2010 11:44 AM

    I would love a weekend getaway to the Sierras, just my wife and I.

    By Nancy on December 27, 2010 11:49 AM

    We bought our frequent traveling friends, nifty hand-held baggage scales to insure that they can avoid those annoying airline baggage fees for bags over 50 lbs.

    By Jackie Mac on December 27, 2010 11:54 AM

    I think a Best Western Gift Card would be the best present for the busy housewife who has to cook all through the holidays. A wonderful couple of days rest in a nice hotel would be heaven.

    By john on December 27, 2010 11:58 AM

    Give my Wife $10,000.00 to pay off her bills.

    By Andrée B. du Québec on December 27, 2010 11:59 AM

    J'aimerais recevoir en cadeau un séjour en Autriche ou en Allemagne, pour aller voir les marchés de Noël.

    By Alan Stewart on December 27, 2010 11:59 AM

    A multi power plug suitable for hot points in new Zealand, USA, Europe, UK and everywhere.

    By Gordon on December 27, 2010 11:59 AM

    As our Christmas gift to each other for the last ten years we have purchased a cruise, usually to the Caribbean islands. Since we usually stay in a BestWestern Hotel the night before embarking the ship in Fort Lauderdale, a travel card from BestWestern would be an ideal gift.

    By Bill Ukrainec on December 27, 2010 12:04 PM

    luggage

    By Billy Meskel on December 27, 2010 12:09 PM

    I'd like a Best Western Travel Card!

    By David on December 27, 2010 12:16 PM

    Id love to have the use of a private jet for a vacation.

    By NaShonna Fontenot on December 27, 2010 12:18 PM

    A GPS would be great for road trip travel. If i was to have a trip for the holidays it would be to Jamaica or Las Vegas and a iphone or ipod would be great for either travel.

    By Robin on December 27, 2010 12:20 PM

    I got to find out I was going to be a grandmother, so that will definately change how I travel. Maybe I need a car seat now.

    By Louise H on December 27, 2010 12:25 PM

    A Best Western Travel Card to use at the Best Western Abby Inn in St. George, Utah next October for the Huntsmen's World Senior Games.

    By Ron Minaker on December 27, 2010 12:30 PM

    All the best in the new year to my freinds at the Best Westerns I have stayed at in the past and in the future. Just keep giving that warm courteous service that I have grown a custom to at my stays at the Best Western Hotels and that my freinds is a gift you just cant put a price on..

    By Grant McLean on December 27, 2010 12:32 PM

    The best holiday travel gift for giving (or receiving) is a Best Western Gift Card....it's always the right size and colour.

    By Philippe on December 27, 2010 12:33 PM

    As I am planning a 2011 summer trip to Utah, Wyoming and Montana , a 25% discount card for all Best Western hotels in this area would be great !

    By Ron on December 27, 2010 12:35 PM

    I received a Nook from B&N ...my 1st purchase will be NIV Bible.

    By Maryh on December 27, 2010 12:38 PM

    I'd like for all our children to be happy, healthy, safe and with us for Christmas.

    By Mike Roe on December 27, 2010 12:44 PM

    A gift bag of travel necessity items. Blankets, crosswords, music downloads.

    By Bernadette on December 27, 2010 12:47 PM

    I wish we could travel to Vermont to see my family. Haven't been home for 6 years. Would love to see them again soon. Travel gift cards would be wonderful

    By Carrie B. on December 27, 2010 12:48 PM

    I'd like to give my husband a GPS so when we are on our motorcycle trips it will be easier for him to locate the next Best Western Hotel.

    By Lorraine Murdoch on December 27, 2010 12:52 PM

    I think the best travel gift to give or receive would be a GPS or A CAA membership or a hotel gift certificate - preferably to a Best Western.

    By Paula B on December 27, 2010 12:55 PM

    The best gift this year would be an apple ipad.
    Love the color screen.

    By Will Duff on December 27, 2010 12:57 PM

    I would like a very effecient backpacking water purifier so the family could carry far less water, and drink from streams & rivers. Oh, and of course some gas for the car and a Best West night/shower over.

    By Carol on December 27, 2010 1:01 PM

    I gave my hubby a GPS for his Christmas present. I'm giving our 2 daughters a trip with me on Mother's day to Hawaii. Can't wait! That's their Christmas present. So winning the Travel card would help alot and make my present.

    By Ellen on December 27, 2010 1:12 PM

    The best travel gift for anyone driving somewhere would be a GPS unit but if they were flying or taking a bus or train the best gift would be an e-reader so they could download a lot of books in a little space and be able to read more books without the heaviness of print books.

    By sherry meade on December 27, 2010 1:18 PM

    My holiday gift this year to the men were eliminator mobile power invertors so that anything could be charged or used via the lighter plugin where ever they travel. can be used in a car truck boat suv rv etc giving a 3 prong household power! no excuse to not have the cell phone charged lol!

    By Rose Archibald on December 27, 2010 1:33 PM

    We are planning a trip to Costa Rica. This has been a long awaited opportunity and we want to enjoy every moment of it. We wish for wonderful weather and a fantastic experience. That's all we are want.

    By Rose Archibald on December 27, 2010 1:35 PM

    We are taking a long awaited trip to Costa Rica in the Spring. All we wish for is wonderful weather and a fantastice experienc. If you can help us with that, we would be very happy.

    By luis prieto on December 27, 2010 1:47 PM

    Definitely an IPad.

    By troy on December 27, 2010 1:49 PM

    A netbook to use the free wifi at hotels!

    By Robin on December 27, 2010 1:51 PM

    a great gift for us would be more time!! hoping for that this year to travel more

    By akikuts on December 27, 2010 1:59 PM

    We got the super sleek Garmin nuvi for our trip to Italy and it turned out to be quite the gem. I highly recommend it for anyone who travels.

    By Deborah on December 27, 2010 2:06 PM

    My daughter would agree, I need a gps. I'm very easily turned around when we are traveling and always head in the wrong direction. My daughter will be graduating in May '11 and no matter where she goes off to continue her education, I want to be able to visit.

    By Ellen on December 27, 2010 2:08 PM

    My idea of a great travlel gift would be to have the money to help my newly enlisted son(U.S. Army)pay to have his 'fiance' fly out and stay for a weekend visit. He may be deployed early in the new year and would like to be able to see her, and buy her a ring, before that happens. He just doesn't have enough for both the ring and the trip.

    By Margaret on December 27, 2010 2:12 PM

    A GPS is a great gift for anyone that loves road trips.

    By MarkH on December 27, 2010 2:19 PM

    An e-reader with web browsing capabilities is ideal for travelling, you get reading choices as well as up to date news,weather, travel ideas from the web.

    By wanda on December 27, 2010 2:58 PM

    a small soft neck pillow, a night eye mask, and a good book

    By Laurie H on December 27, 2010 3:03 PM

    The perfect gift would be a 75 dollar gas card and a weekend stay at a Best Western for the weekend.. The perfect get-a-way for the couple .. after a busy Christmas holiday...

    By paula on December 27, 2010 3:04 PM

    A GPS would be nice. I recently got lost while sightsseeing in New Orleans.

    By patricia scott on December 27, 2010 3:10 PM

    I WOULD LIKE TO MY GRANDCHILDREN A GPS.

    By Ron on December 27, 2010 3:21 PM

    It would be a gas/gift card and a couple nights hotel away from the kids for us. We haven't been away from the kids for several years.

    By Irene N. on December 27, 2010 3:25 PM

    We give our close friends B.W. gift cards for Christmas so that during the year we can take mini trips together

    By Cathy McNeil on December 27, 2010 3:27 PM

    Since Best Western is our hotel chain of choice, a Best Western gift certificate would be awesome. Our travel is primarily by car within the U.S. so a gift certificate for a major fuel provider would be nice. Thank you Best Western for always exceeding our expectations!

    By W.L. Chapuis on December 27, 2010 3:34 PM

    I'dike to give my friends a couple nights stay at Best Western in Birmingham so they can do some shopping at the wonderful Summitt Mall

    By Donna Burkett on December 27, 2010 3:38 PM

    I like to give gift cards to my kids so that they may get what they want. Amazon is a good place, but they know they can ask for a specific store or website for a gift card if they have something specific they are wanting. I also give my mother a gift card for her favorite restaurant. She lives in California, I live in Vermont, this way I can take her out to dinner!

    My fantasy gift I would like to receive would be a airline ticket to Australia. My son is living there and I haven't seen him in over two years. Would love to go!

    By Sharell Carney on December 27, 2010 3:42 PM

    I would like to receive 3 nights stay at the Best Western in Los Angles in Feb. before going on the Panama Cruise with my husband. We often stay at the Best Western in the USA and love it.

    By Mike Lakes on December 27, 2010 3:46 PM

    I would like to give a needy family a travel gift card so they can get together with family that they have not been able to see

    By Karen Schooler on December 27, 2010 4:05 PM

    I want to give my husband a weekly planner* 2011, with our Anniversary date circled, and a gift cert. for BestWestern.

    By Susan on December 27, 2010 4:14 PM

    I think a great pair of ear buds are the only thing to have for plane travel. So small, so simple and you can't live without them!!!!!!

    By sharon on December 27, 2010 4:22 PM

    The best travel gifts are gift cards (national restaurants) or American express cards which can be used internationally

    By Maureen Cooke on December 27, 2010 4:38 PM

    I would love a trip to almost any place would be the best gift. Also would like head set that takes away the airplane sounds so I could sleep.

    By Violet on December 27, 2010 4:57 PM

    The best travel gift would be a free hotel room vs staying with family and friends. For me going on a holiday means I dont have to make the bed and sleep and wake up whenever I want to. I will never be a Queen so let me live like one even for a day or two! Thanks.

    By Rick on December 27, 2010 5:00 PM

    A "HUSH" button on my OnStar to get past the legal nagging and unnecessary pleasantries, as I drive past my exit on the highway

    By Joe Cabla on December 27, 2010 5:03 PM

    PS3 all the way. A little bit of home when on the road ; )

    By janet on December 27, 2010 5:06 PM

    car total tool kit - with seatbelt cutter, glass breaker, glow stick, to get you out of a mess.

    By Paul Adams on December 27, 2010 5:07 PM

    I would like to take my wife back to her home town of Green Bay, Wisconsin for a surprise vacation.

    By Larry on December 27, 2010 5:09 PM

    To give or receive because it just leads to a plus either way: a gift card for a stay at a Best Western. We have known the joy both ways, and you can not beat a win/win situation.

    By Cary on December 27, 2010 5:11 PM

    Have everyone stop giving presents and spend their money on travel to get the family together somewhere for the holidays.

    By LINDA on December 27, 2010 5:15 PM

    I would like to take my wife for a surprise vacation.
    Free lodging would really help!

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    By Marla on December 27, 2010 5:17 PM

    The best vacation would be taking our kids on a mini ski vacation.

    By Janet J on December 27, 2010 5:25 PM

    Taking my Mom and Dad to Missouri to see the great grand daughter they have not yet seen.

    By Carolanne May on December 27, 2010 5:38 PM

    I would like to get a GPS!!!!!

    By Ed Lischin on December 27, 2010 5:40 PM

    I give travel certificates from Best Western which allows recipients the flexibility to plan for themselves.

    By Rich Lathrop on December 27, 2010 6:01 PM

    Anything Harley!!! Preferably the bike BUT I'll take anything.

    By Tim B on December 27, 2010 6:08 PM

    I would love to cruise Alaska.

    By Barbara on December 27, 2010 6:11 PM

    A Best Western gift card, two theatre ticket vouchers and a "homemade" certificate inviting the recipient to use the gift card at the Best Western Chemainus Festival Inn and see a holiday play at the Chemainus Theatre Festival. (Chemainus is a small town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.)

    By Kathy H on December 27, 2010 6:15 PM

    A wireless modem would keep me connected as I travel...thanks for offering this contest

    By Clint Doss on December 27, 2010 6:35 PM

    I would like to give my friends and family a travel tip: www.BestWestern.com I would love to recieve a $250 gift card.

    By Janice on December 27, 2010 6:57 PM

    An ipad is the best travel companion. With the available apps you can store and view photos, GPS, maps, weather, along with a myriad of other subjects including your favorite books. It's light, easy to carry, and can act as your second brain no matter where you travel in the world. A must have for the active traveler.

    By Pat on December 27, 2010 7:10 PM

    ipad is the ticket. Look up your reservation confirmation from mail. Check out local events, surf the web, keep busy with gaming. Unlimited application. I find more uses everyday.

    By Donna Williams on December 27, 2010 7:10 PM

    A GPS would be helpful.

    By Uncle Art on December 27, 2010 7:14 PM

    A gift that a hotel chain could give (and no one is doing it now) is an in-house photo printer, so guests could print their electronic photos the day they're taken, without having to go out after a looooong day of sightseeing...

    By Debra Sheppard on December 27, 2010 7:25 PM

    I would love to take my children to Disney World in Florida. We have never been there and it would be a great vacation for them, and staying at a Best Western would be even better............Thanks!

    By Eileen Cleveland on December 27, 2010 7:35 PM

    A quality pocket camera and convenient camcorder are essentials for any trip.

    By Debra Edstrom on December 27, 2010 7:49 PM

    A lap top would be nice, but it's expensive, so will have to see if Santa will bring it. An e-reader would be nice too. I have to look into more to see what kind I would like if I get one, unless Santa brings it. Jewelry is o.k. too!!!
    I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas.

    By Kelly Bj on December 27, 2010 7:50 PM

    New beach wear for my boyfriend and I. After all the turkey and goodies from Christmas, I don't know if we will still fit into our swimsuits for our next beach holiday.

    By John Henderson on December 27, 2010 7:58 PM

    I would love and I Pad, plus a weekend getaway in Vermont.

    By Delma Wheeler on December 27, 2010 8:17 PM

    I would love an IPad to play with while waiting in airports.

    By RW on December 27, 2010 8:18 PM

    I would like to receive a quality GPS system.

    By Bin Qi on December 27, 2010 8:18 PM

    IPad

    By Linda on December 27, 2010 8:24 PM

    I would love an Ipad also

    By melissat. on December 27, 2010 8:30 PM

    I would love to instill the gift of travel, adventure, culture and language into my children!

    By DIPAK PATHAK on December 27, 2010 8:49 PM

    I would love to receive Best western travel card to enjoy holidays in 2011 with my wife & son in Singapore.

    By Debbie Lichtenberg on December 27, 2010 9:30 PM

    The best travel gifts to me is a travel pillow and blanket. I always keep one with me. For the car, plane etc. In case you get stuck somewhere it is crucial that you have something of comfort. Additionally, you should always have food and water if you travel by car to your destination. Keep safe and sound and happy traveling.

    By agnes chow on December 27, 2010 9:47 PM

    I would like to receive free hotel night stay for my visits to see my kids in school.

    By Dale Mcqueen on December 27, 2010 10:01 PM

    I would like to receive gift cards from Best Western so my husband and I could enjoy little get aways when ever time allows.

    By C Gaile on December 27, 2010 10:24 PM

    Most people already have all the travel gadgets, so I came up with something different...I made thermal-quilted curling iron holders for the ladies. Nothing worse than being in a rush to get going in the morning and your curling iron is too hot to put into your suitcase. There is also a pocket for combs and one for clips, ties, etc., roll it up in the insulated pocket and cotton fabric cover and tie it shut and you are ready to go.

    By nicolas bello on December 28, 2010 12:45 AM

    the best travel gift is a picture of your loved ones still back at home. that helps keep you grounded and reminds you of what is truly important.

    By Judith Randall on December 28, 2010 4:31 AM

    I would like a week long trip to a Luxury Hotel with a spa. At my age I deseve it.

    By John Chace on December 28, 2010 4:46 AM

    Toy Story fiberoptic children's suitcase

    By Sandy Rosier on December 28, 2010 4:51 AM

    An I-Phone is the perfect gift for anyone of any age! On land, air, or at sea; you can keep in touch with family, friends and work. For the occasional holiday traveler or the business traveler, in I phone is perfect!

    By Karon Harrell on December 28, 2010 4:59 AM

    I would like to win an ebook or ipad to use when traveling.

    By Kirsten Clark on December 28, 2010 5:03 AM

    The best travel gift is a trip out west for my kids so that they can spend New Year with their grandmother and their cousins - people they don't get to spend time with nearly as much as they would like.

    By Lynda B on December 28, 2010 5:18 AM

    Travelling anywhere with my husband and daughter is always a gift. We love to buy Best Western Gift cards with our AirMiles.

    By kim h on December 28, 2010 6:01 AM

    It would be the best travel gift to visit my son at college in boston, mass.

    By Donna F on December 28, 2010 6:12 AM

    I'd love to take my kids somewhere sunny and warm to get away from all this snow!

    By Sue O'Connor on December 28, 2010 7:12 AM

    The best travel gift was the GPS system my son gave me before we left for our trip out West. We flew into Calgary, rented a car and went to Banff, down to Kelowna, Abbottsford, Vancouver and Victoria. It was great!!!
    We stayed at all Best Western hotels along the way. It was 10 days awsome sites and getting there safe, quickly, and with reservations waiting waiting our arrivals.

    By Renee on December 28, 2010 7:18 AM

    I would love everything I : IPhone, IPad, IDock, IPod... for me, myself and I

    By Sheila on December 28, 2010 7:56 AM

    I would love a ticket to Memphis, TN to attend my nephew's wedding in May. He's a Green Beret in the Special Services and serving in Afghanistan right now.

    By Janice D on December 28, 2010 8:03 AM

    It's better to give than receive, so I'd give the Best Western Gift card to someone very special, to relax at one of Best Western's many great hotel locations.

    Happy New Year, to All.

    By John Cormack on December 28, 2010 8:24 AM

    Two weeks touring France.

    By Tammy on December 28, 2010 8:36 AM

    A trip to Italy

    By Nancy M on December 28, 2010 8:43 AM

    I travel every week and a GPS would save me paying for one each time I rent a car. As well, Luggage with rotating wheels would make life much easier!

    By wayne coulter on December 28, 2010 8:48 AM

    The gift of a true vacation. Taking off with someone you love and leaving all of your worries at home. The gift of patience and the gift of having fun are all required to truly have a wonderful vacation!! Oh and don't forget to book Best Western as they make your stays enjoyable.

    Thank you Best Western and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all out there and be happy and safe!!!!

    By Ms. Mia on December 28, 2010 8:53 AM

    A personal gaming system such as Nintendo DSi to take with me on long plane rides!

    By Penny Andrews on December 28, 2010 8:54 AM

    I stayed 2 nights at Best Western this summer; the "free night" certificate that I received was transferable to anyone! I gave it to my son, along with a $500 VISA gift card, so he and his new wife could take a vacation. They didn't have a honeymoon because of finances, so now they are going to get a mini-honeymoon.

    By Karen S on December 28, 2010 9:35 AM

    This year I wish that I could give my children (adults) a trip that they will remember. They have been struggling in this economy and I know that a trip to warm weather is out of their budget.
    A trip to Arizona would lift their spirits and warm their souls for the rest of the long Michigan winter.
    I also wish a better 2011 to everyone who is suffering or struggling to get by.

    By Lucie on December 28, 2010 9:43 AM

    An ipod touch

    By Jeanne on December 28, 2010 10:05 AM

    My mom passed away last year and our family stayed at the Best Western in Wausau WI during the funeral. I want to thank the staff there for being so accomodating!
    My hubby and I had the pleasure of celebrating our anniversary at the beautiful and perfect Best Western Emerald Beach in St Thomas. We are so hoping we can again share this beautiful island oasis this year. With two kids in college, this gift of travel would be greatly appreciated.

    By Virgil L. Acton on December 28, 2010 10:18 AM

    It would be really nice to have a Ford Fusion Hybrid. We could afford to travel to many more Best Western Hotel/Motel complexes.

    By Dorothy B on December 28, 2010 10:32 AM

    I would like to get a Kindle for my mom who loves to read. At 82 years of age, it's not that easy for her to get to the library, and I live 900 miles away!

    By Alan Wolfson on December 28, 2010 11:59 AM

    It's so cliche, but I think an I-phone would be great. I'm 51 and going to become a grandpa in about a week. 3 of my 4 kids have cell phones; my wife has a cell phone - but I am the one who earns all the money and I CAN"T AFFORD a cell phone. It would be so nice never to have to use pay phones again!!

    By kathleen on December 28, 2010 12:10 PM

    greatest gift to travel. a camera.. best part of the journey , the lifetime of memories!! and always stay at BESTWESTERN !!!

    By Ami A on December 28, 2010 12:13 PM

    I would love a new iPod. My last one died and driving just is not as entertaining.

    By Mike Weber on December 28, 2010 12:16 PM

    How about a GPS with western Europe pre-loaded?

    By Dave on December 28, 2010 1:37 PM

    I would love an IPad. I would play Angry Birds all day long,

    By Praveen on December 28, 2010 2:23 PM

    I like to get a 3D HDTV......as most future movies, and even some of the previous ones will be in 3D now....That's a real 'into the future' gift!

    By Jody on December 28, 2010 2:46 PM

    Trip to Hawaii for our 40th Wedding Anniversary in July 2011

    By Imran Jaffar on December 28, 2010 3:09 PM

    i would like to have iPod

    By donfraz on December 28, 2010 3:12 PM

    A GPS would be a nice gift for anyone who drives.

    By don on December 28, 2010 3:17 PM

    A cellphone loaded with many popular apps, including the internet, would be a terrific holiday gift.

    By Reiz on December 28, 2010 3:23 PM

    A wii game would be a great gift. It gets you off of the couch and gets you moving. It can draw a family closer together while playing games and a learning strategies.

    By Henrik Rode on December 28, 2010 3:43 PM

    I'd like a really good portable vaporizer for all those times and places when smoking is not convenient.

    By Robin on December 28, 2010 3:58 PM

    The best gift is being with family and friends. We have not seen several family members and friends for many years that live in California and Colorado. A best gift would be a trip to visit with everyone!

    By Jill on December 28, 2010 4:44 PM

    iPad- read, watch movies, surf while waiting for your plane.

    By S Philpott-Adhikary on December 28, 2010 5:37 PM

    All I really want for Christmas is my family altogether in one place, enoying the season in happiness and good health. That would be the best gift in the world! xo

    By Manville Kenney on December 28, 2010 5:47 PM

    A good mystery novel (to curl up with poolside after winning this drawing).

    By Gary Morrell on December 28, 2010 6:42 PM

    I would like a waterproof camera or an iPod

    By Becky Edmonson on December 28, 2010 8:35 PM

    I would love to have a GPS to help guide me everywhere I go, and it would help me find the next "Best Western"!!

    By Helen on December 28, 2010 9:26 PM

    Would just like a free night stay to wherever my next vacation might take me.

    By Rudolph Garrett on December 28, 2010 10:42 PM

    While traveling in Europe this winter, I would like to have an Apple ipad. I could get my e-mails, check the weather, read some books- while being delayed in the airports and train stations (like today) and of course, to fine tune my accomendations along the way. Yes, that's a wish come true!

    By Heidi on December 28, 2010 11:26 PM

    More things to pack and bring along are more of a hindrance than a necessity. It's being able to be vacate the ordinary in our lives that makes the "vacation" real. Too often, it's lack of funds that makes that vacating/vacation difficult. Whenever a hotel chain offers free nights, we take advantage of that. It's a gift that really feels great when you can say: "We went here/there/wherever and it didn't cost us a thing!!!"

    By Mark on December 29, 2010 2:41 AM

    Gift Card for food at the destination I'm traveling to.

    By Dennis George on December 29, 2010 4:40 AM

    A GPS.

    By Janet on December 29, 2010 4:40 AM

    My hubby and sons are going to Boston to see the Montreal Canadiens and would love to book them a surprise gift to stay at a Best Western.

    By Dennis George on December 29, 2010 4:42 AM

    A GPS system.

    By Joan Perry on December 29, 2010 5:40 AM

    A GPS is great if you're travelling by road. However, if you're waiting at an airport for your flight to leave, it may be a good book that is the best travel companion. Reading is for life! Literacy impacts everything we do. Whether it's fiction, non-fiction, or an activity book, it's the wisest gift choice by far! An actual book does not depend upon technology to work (unless it's an e-book) so there are few interruptions once you get into it.

    By Kelley Jacquez on December 29, 2010 6:04 AM

    I think Best Western gift cards for free nights at the traveler's destination would be a wonderful surprise for family members.

    By Harold Hull on December 29, 2010 6:05 AM

    I would like a winter vacation to Florida

    By Donna Wetzel on December 29, 2010 8:00 AM

    I would enjoy un;imited stay at Best Western Inn's for the year. I would use this to take a road trip across the United States

    By Sandy Watson on December 29, 2010 8:29 AM

    It is my wish to travel to all of the provinces and territories of Canada.

    By Diane Tippit on December 29, 2010 8:37 AM

    I would like more free nights stay, more rewards points, free gas card or shopping card. This way I could spend more time staying at Bestwestern Hotels!!!

    By Cynthia on December 29, 2010 9:15 AM

    For my parents a GPS, so they don't get lost.
    For my brother a car rental.
    For my boyfriend, an iTunes gift card so he can download tunes for the road.
    For myself, money to travel with;-)

    By Letitia Mason on December 29, 2010 9:41 AM

    I would give the gift card to my husband because he is always paying for the hotel stays. He could stay at the Ayres Suites in Corona, Ca. where they cook pancakes, potatoes and bacon for breakfast and make the best coffee in town. I have not stayed at Best Western for over 3 months because customer service was poor.

    By Lisa on December 29, 2010 10:38 AM

    We just returned from a sight-seeing vacation & now need a relaxing vacation! We would love a gift of a trip to an all-inclusive resort or spa.

    By Joan on December 29, 2010 11:17 AM

    Since we travel a lot, I would like to have a hotel discount card or free nights stay or free room service. That would help a lot for our travel expenses.

    By Amaral on December 29, 2010 12:48 PM

    I would like to give airlines tickets and hotel stays to families of those who are very sick and can not travel so their families can visit with them one last time.

    By Blondeau Ronald on December 29, 2010 2:34 PM

    Ronald from Canada: I Would like a gift card for travelling.

    By Gail Super on December 29, 2010 3:25 PM

    The best travel gift I ever got was a blank journal to record everything in. I was 19 and off to Europe to backpack for two months. It made me pay attention and record (by hand) the things I did and saw each day. I say back to basics! Thank goodness I filled that journal up and had to buy another one before I came home. I now have wonderful memories in many languages to read over and over.

    By Karla B on December 29, 2010 4:14 PM

    A trip to Kauai, that would be a dream come true

    By Martha V on December 29, 2010 5:24 PM

    A new pair of comfortable walking shoes would be great!

    By Don on December 29, 2010 8:08 PM

    A great holiday gift would be to have peace throughout the earth. People living together in harmony and striving to make life better for all.

    By Frazi on December 29, 2010 8:28 PM

    A trip to Hawii would be a great holiday gift. Relaxation on a nice sandy beach, enjoying the company of my wife and delicious food would be an excellent way to wrap up the holidays.

    By don on December 29, 2010 8:31 PM

    Accomodations curtesy of Best Western would cap off a wonderful holiday.

    By Cindy on December 29, 2010 8:47 PM

    A trip for the whole family to ge together over the holidays

    By steve on December 29, 2010 9:30 PM

    I would like to send my Dad and my three sons on a salmon fishing trip out of the BW Tin Wis Resort in Tofino British Columbia so they could feel the excitement and enjoy the beauty of the West Coast of Vancouver Island British Columbia.

    By Rhonda Gaines on December 29, 2010 10:20 PM

    My daughter is a Marine stationed at Okinawa Japan. I am traveling to see her in March after not seeing her 9 months. MY holiday travel wish is is a travel blanket/travel pillow for the 20 flight and that she not be deployed to Korea before I get there. Semper Fi

    By Allan on December 29, 2010 10:50 PM


    An IPad would be nice....

    By Elaine Monks on December 30, 2010 12:00 AM

    An i phone4 because you can take photos and videos, watch movies, read ebooks, phone friends, use the GPS and also track friends who also have an iphone4, surf the internet, listen to music, email people, play games, book reservations and the list goes on! And by the way, I do not work for Apple or own shares in the company, but I was very lucky to receive one of these for Christmas and only wish I could give all my friends one of these incredible machines!

    By Trevor Smith on December 30, 2010 6:02 AM

    All I wanted was for Christmas was family and friends and the enjoyment of watching my kids unwrap their gifts, oh and good food!!

    By Emmanuel T. Uy on December 30, 2010 6:41 AM

    The gift that I want is for both me and my wife, which is a get-away from this cold weather, a vacation trip to Hawaii, including a week stay to Best Western Top of the line hotel suite fronting the beach, a first class round trip ticket for two to Hawaii, including breakfast/lunch/dinner. Plus including free jet-ski , scuba diving, tours and etc....thanks....

    By Janeen Wilfert on December 30, 2010 8:40 AM

    What I would love most is to be able to do something very special for my husband. Maybe a stay at our favorite hotel in Baraga Michigan. He is a giver and now I would like to be able to give back to him.

    By Gordon on December 30, 2010 10:50 AM

    Ten years ago I suffered a major stroke. Since we had always enjoyed travelling, we now find the most stress-free vacations are a cruise to the Caribbean as a great interruption from our icy snowy Manitoba winters. We like to stay at a Best Western Hotel in Fort Lauderdale the night before we embark. A travel gift card from Best Western would be be a fabulous bonus on our journey!

    By valeri emin on December 30, 2010 11:14 AM

    I love to read and would really enjoy an i pad for reading while travelling.

    By Sandi on December 30, 2010 11:34 AM

    Winter Silk long underwear top with lace trim to use an extra layer for warmth or as camisole look under a jacket. They weigh almost nothing and take up little packing space.

    By Dofa on December 30, 2010 1:44 PM

    A paid off mortgage.

    By Frazi on December 30, 2010 1:53 PM

    A nice digital camera and a gift card from BW would be nice.

    By cdykman on December 30, 2010 2:24 PM

    My perfect travel companion would be a notebook computer so I could upload travel photos and edit, view friends and family photos, manage my itunes playlists, check email/facebook and find the perfect meal, dress, landmark etc. to make it the most fabulous vacation.

    By Linda Wenik on December 30, 2010 2:34 PM

    The best travel gift for me would be the personal luggage scale. After my last trip to upper state NY in Sept., I was flying home out of Burlington VT and when they weighted my luggage it was over 50 lbs and my daughter opened my suitcase right then and there and started pulling things out and stuffing those items into my carryon. Yes indeed I could really use a luggage scale!

    By Dee on December 30, 2010 4:02 PM

    I would LOVE a Best Western Hotel gift card. We really enjoy salmon fishing in Riggins, Idaho while staying at the beautiful Salmon Rapids Lodge. They are so friendly and accomodating to all us hoards of salmon fishermen that descend upon them every spring that it just enhances the whole experience...a highlight of our year.

    By Betty Stewart on December 30, 2010 5:26 PM

    It's a bit late now, but I wish since my hancle refused to come out on my suitcase just after I got off the plane in Vancouver to visit my family in Whister and then over to Victoria that Santa would have sent me one of the new revolving wheel suitcases.

    By Esther on December 30, 2010 7:47 PM

    I would love a set of tickets to go visit the Holy Land along with Best Western stays while there.

    By Elizabeth Shepard on December 31, 2010 4:39 AM

    I would dearly love to receive one of those flexible, doughnut shaped pillows that can be used as a pillow or as lumbar support. I certainly could have used one during my last trip.

    By Melanie Harrington on December 31, 2010 6:54 AM

    I would like to receive a gas card. My kids are active in Texas 4-H Shooting Sports. We travel to/from various county shoots January through July every year. I have a son who's 15 and daughter who's 11. Oh, my son just got his learner's permit too so definitely comes in handy letting him drive and get experience =:D Happy New Year to all!

    By Don on December 31, 2010 7:35 AM

    A pair of tickets to Hawaii with extended stay curtesy of Best Western would be a dream holiday gift.

    By Frado on December 31, 2010 7:41 AM

    A cruise for two and a BW gift card could be nice holiday gift as well as a romantic getaway.

    By Bruce Holland on December 31, 2010 8:18 AM

    I think a GPS is a good travel gift..

    By Sandie on December 31, 2010 9:47 AM

    I think a nice trip to Ottawa for two and a BW gift card would be a wonderful gift to receive, and really anywhere would be nice.

    By Lea Parker on December 31, 2010 10:03 AM

    A GPS is essential , to find your way around unfamiliar cities and country sides, we have been lost before , our daughter gave us one for christmas this year (nice gift).

    By Donna S on December 31, 2010 11:07 AM

    Even though this is the last day of the contest, it would be great to receive a BW gift card in order to stay in a warm comfortable place with a hot tub, when we are able to do some upgrades to our 'not so warm' place we live in (and some funds to do the upgrades would be great too). Happy New Year. Thank you.

    By Dan on December 31, 2010 11:38 AM

    The best gifts to give are best western travel gift cards and a best western pillow to use at home for all those times you wished you were at one. I would love to get these gifts and give them. Travel cards are convnient and easy to use. Thank you for all the great hospitatily and have a happy new year.

    By Shirley on December 31, 2010 11:44 AM

    For chirstmas this year my common law partner recieved a GPS system for all the travels we plan to do in the upcomming year, and for all the times we need to find the nearest best western. Getting Best western travel cards are also a favorite gift given and recieved in our family as we all enjoy staying there. If i were to get one in the future it could be used on many of our family adventures in the coming new year. Thanks to all the best western for continued great hospitality and service and all the best in 2011.

    By Jim on January 1, 2011 2:59 PM

    My wife and I retired over a year ago and now, are starting to travel. We would love to go somewhere hot for part of the winter. Anyplace with a Best Western and 30 + C. in the winter.

    By Stephen Mcgraw on January 24, 2011 3:52 PM

    I'd like a nice weekend getaway for 2 just to sit back and take it easy.

    By Donna Yundt on February 7, 2011 7:00 AM

    We travelled out to British Columbia with our Grandbabies last year, and stayed at Best Westerns everywhere we stopped. They were telling me that this year they want to travel out east and stay at the same spots. So, if I had one travel wish it would be to have a Best Western gift card so I could make there dreams come true this year as well. Thanks....

    By Gilberte on February 8, 2011 12:07 PM
