We’ve just got back from our trip to Thailand (you can see lots of our photos on instagram) and we are having to make a very swift transition from beach life straight into Christmas!
So to pull the two themes together I’ve created a list of gifts for the travel lover. Hopefully thinking about presents will focus my mind that we’ve less than a month to go! Eeep!
For while they’re away
A happy sunny bag
Keep it clean
This is such a practical idea I really wish I had spotted this before we left for Thailand. The Scrubba Wash Bag is a bag you put your dirty clothes in and, using the scrubbing board inside, you wash them! It also doubles up as a dry bag, which is useful for boat trips and also on the beach for keeping your wet bikini separate from dry things in a bag. They claim it is twice as effective as hand washing, and as it packs up really small, I would love to give this a try, and probably so would any travel lover with a trip coming up where their baggage allowance isn’t too generous. (rrp £44.08)
There’s nothing worse than being out and about while running out of battery power. To ensure this doesn’t happen, gift your travel loving friend a power bank. This one looks particularly good because it can hold enough juice for two devices and it doubles as a torch – perfect for when there’s a electricity failure in small far-flung places. (rrp £29.99 but currently on offer with £10 off).
Perfect to slip into cabin baggage, this is a totally practical gift for your travel enthusiast friend. A plug adapter for all destinations, this also has a USB slot to avoid that need for an extra outlet. (rrp £30.00)
Fun stuff at home
Sometimes all you do as a travel lover is wish you were somewhere else. Make their home cosy with a little print for their wall. (from £15)
This is such a fun cushion for travel enthusiasts (and lots of other folk too!), and would look sweet on most sofas. (rrp £28)
This is another fun print for lovers of the French capital (and who doesn’t love Paris?) and will be sure to be loved to brighten up the walls of a travel lover.
I hope you liked these gift ideas for travelers. If you’d like anything from this guide, be sure to share this post with your friends to drop the hint!
