Holiday Travel: What Not to Give
Isn't it one of the cruel ironies of life that the worst gifts come from the people who can actually afford to spend a few bucks? Case in point: Scarlett Johansson recently appeared on Jay Leno and graciously presented the audience with...a used napkin full of her ScarJo kooties. She claims that since her cold is courtesy of costar Samuel L. Jackson, it has more value than ordinary snotty tissues and therefore people should bid to win this "prize" on eBay. Two words: Delusional... Hey, look at that, I only needed one.
David Letterman was the recipient of another bad celebrity gift when Jennifer Aniston stopped by to promote her new film on Wednesday. Letterman received the tie from Aniston's recent photo shoot for GQ. Granted, the strategically positioned tie did play a key role in keeping the photographs from the slush pile of Playboy, but really, Jennifer, a used tie?
These celebs should take a lesson in gift giving. What do we all really want this holiday season? A fabulous getaway, of course. So in the spirit of all things warm and fuzzy, here are some fabulous travel deals that you can find right now (prices may be subject to change):
Costa Rica: The new Hilton Garden Inn Liberia Airport is celebrating its opening with special rates as low as $79.
Sheraton: For every weeknight you pay the regular rate, you can get the next night 50 percent off. The Sheraton Seattle Hotel rates start at $139.
Las Vegas: The economic downturn has crushed Sin City. But at least you can reap the benefits of its misery by snagging unbelievable deals! The swanky Bellagio has deluxe rooms for $129 midweek. Not to be outdone, Hard Rock Hotel has rates starting at $59, and the Venetian offers you the Suite Life for $199 per night (includes breakfast, SpaClub passports, and other amenities). Even if you don't gamble, it's worth the trip to see Vegas' bizarre snow storm.
Take note, gift-giving celebs!
