Whether they’re an avid wanderluster with a thirst for adventure, or a busy business jetsetter, we’ve got some great gifts for the travel inclined. Read on for our top picks.
Fact: you can never have too many travel adaptors. Phones, cameras and laptops all still need charging, no matter where you go, and different countries have different shaped plug outlets. It can be a disaster if you don’t have a reliable electric adaptor – just ask the lady who couldn’t get her flat iron to work. The Cape Union Compact Travel Adaptor is compatible for the UK, Europe, Northern America and Australia, has built-in L-N surge protection, and a power rating of 6A Max. The recipient of this gift will thank you every time they leave the country.
Know someone who always gets nabbed for overweight luggage? This is the gift for them! At just 85 grams it’s convenient to take with when you’re travelling, and super easy to use. No climbing on and off of floor scales and craning your neck to read the weight – simply hook it onto the handle of your luggage and lift for a quick, accurate reading.
Any smart traveller will thank you for this thoughtful gift. Nobody wants to lug full bottles of shampoo and conditioner around on their holiday. They take up space and count towards your weight allowance, and you could get into trouble with airport security if you put them in your carry on. Travelon Smart Tubes are available in 59 and 89ml sizes so that you only take as much as you need, they’re compliant with international carry-on rules, and are reusable. No more sticky surprises when you get to your destination – they’re leak proof, spill proof, and eco-friendly. Use the provided stickers to conveniently label the contents of your tubes.
Any organized traveller will love this gift! The packing cells, crafted from durable polyester, come in a three-pack in sizes small, medium and large. They’re great for organising your luggage and keeping things from wrinkling, or separating clean and dirty clothes.
The way to any traveller’s heart is via new luggage, and the K-Way Travel Buddy is where it’s at. If the ultra-sleek design of this high quality hand luggage fails to impress, the detachable backpack, telescopic handle and Okoban compliancy will do the business. For the best Christmas ever, stick this under the tree as a promise of the many adventures yet to come.
