$500 Razors And Other Travel Must-Haves

What do you get the high end traveler that has everything? Fox News says that when you’re “going to pretend to pay big money,” you need to go after high-end brand names and their takes on travel necessities.

Take, for example, the Elsa Peretti men’s razor (pictured at Tiffany & Co. Sheathed in ruthenium, it’ll set you back nearly $500 before tax. The metal means it won’t tarnish, and the shape does look easy to hold in the hand. It takes Gillette Mach 3 and Mach 3 Turbo razor cartridges for simplicity’s sake.

There are also the wrap-around video sunglasses that have been around forever. Costing a few hundred dollars, they look like Oakley’s headphone/earphones but project any video source with a composite output. Other goodies that might turn the eye include all-leather carry-ons from Ferrari and other makers that run in the low thousands of dollars range

And, just on the off chance that there are non-millionaires that read the NileGuide Blog, here are a few alternatives: The stock Mach 3 razor for men and women costs less than $20 with cartridges included. A military-spec duffel bag will last for years, as long as you don’t mind it not matching your outfit. And tablets or DVD players can be had for a hundred dollars or so, and play movies themselves.
