As fascinating as a famous hat can be, in some ways the real star of the Old Red Museum is the Old Red Courthouse that houses it. Built in 1892, it is a lovely building, and the restoration work done on it is impressive. Tours of the Old Red Courthouse are free with admission to the Old Red Museum, and I highly recommend taking one. Also, ask an employee in the Gift Shop to let you have a look at the restored vault. It’s pretty nifty.

Canary Wireless Hotspotter: This one’s for the guy who can’t live without his wireless connection. It’s a bit geeky, but he’ll love it when he’s in a small town in Greece and having trouble finding a Wi-Fi signal. With a single click of a button, the Hotspotter will find up to 20 Wi-Fi networks and give you their signal strengths and everything else you need to know to get connected. We learned about this gadget from a tech geek we know. The only thing he doesn’t like about it is that everyone he meets on his travels bugs him to find Wi-Fi connections for them.
EnerG iPhone Case: If he doesn’t have an iPhone, then you may have to add one of those to his gift list, but if he does, he will probably break into tears when he opens this great gadget. The EnerG iPhone case contains a built-in lithium battery that extends the time between iPhone recharges by up to 13 hours. This gives him plenty of battery life to watch movies in flight, use Google maps to find his way around Florence or London or talk to you on the phone while he’s traveling.
