The Vinnibag is a great idea. Basically it means you can take a bottle of wine, or anything else fragile, to all sorts of places without the risk of it getting broken. Now you can even put a bottle of wine or expensive brandy in your suitcase when you're flying.
This would be great for shipping something like a telephoto lens. I recently shipped some honey to a friend in Maryland and, even though the jars were plastic, the post office managed to break one of the lids. Imagine receiving a present which was dripping from the box. Next time I'll use a Vinnibag!
I suggest you go to Vinnibag.com to check out the funny video (they should call it a Vinneo) of someone trying to smash a bottle of wine (in a Vinnibag) inside a suitcase by throwing it down a flight of steps.
We always have trouble shopping at Christmas for my wife's boss. He and his wife (both doctors) make a LOT more money than us. They have kids the same age, and pretty much have all the best toys/accessories well before we even hear about them, let alone ponder giving as a gift (it's freaky, even BOOKS are like that, it's weirding me out!).
Anyway, they kind of have "everything", at least relative to us... And our budget doesn't really reach that level where we could get them a good version of the stuff they like - mostly fine wine and trips to hawaii.
Which is where the Vinnibag comes in... Perfect for travellers, it provides a pretty shock-absorbent/resistant case for a bottle of wine, which you can then take with you on your trip to/from Hawaii, and maybe actually appreciate your employee who got it for you. ;) It's relatively inexpensive without being CHEAP, and it's something that receiving more than one is prefectly fine - between eventually breakage/leakage (isn't it inevitable, really?), loss, and just wanting to bring back a lot of bottles from somewhere, it's a great solution. Heck, they can keep one in each car, and one in each suitcase.
Anyway, just thought others might appreciate the need for a gift item like this, where especially the income disparities at work usually result in a much better gift coming down the chain than going up.
We purchased the Vinnibag after reading reviews on Amazon. We were going on a cruise and wanted to take a bottle of champagne in our luggage. The Vinnibag worked perfectly: no breakage, no spills. We will recommend this product to others.
