Frequent travelers to Las Vegas will welcome a clever new invention by locals Gena and Matt Marler: The Vegas Box. This 20-by-17-by-12-inch lockable storage box can be used to hold personal items, such as shampoo, conditioner, and shaving kits, or business supplies and convention materials. The durable plastic box is delivered to travelers at their hotel room upon arrival, and then picked up after they leave and moved to a secure, climate-controlled warehouse until their next visit. It helps travelers save on baggage fees and the hassle of clearing security with toiletries. The box comes with dividers, breakaway security locks (customers can supply their own locks), one year of storage, and two hotel deliveries for $99. Additional deliveries cost $20 each per trip.
