 Flight 001 packing cubes

I’ve been using packing cubes for years and they are a travel game changer. Mine are cheap as chips packing cubes from Amazon. The dream packing cubes however are from Flight 001.  They are high quality packing bags with gorgeous prints and colors and they are double sided so you can put your dirty laundry on the other side . The site also sell lots of other travel essentials  such as adapters and  toiletry bags .  A set of packing cubes start from about $100 .

Gift cards for travel agents / airlines

A gift card/voucher for an airline or travel agent  is a great idea for a Christmas gift. Many European budget airlines do vouchers / gift cards or go with a travel agent if you’re not sure what airline the recipient wants to fly with  . In Ireland and the UK Trailfinders is a good option.

Gorilla Pod Tripod

A tripod is an essential for any travel lover who like to take photos (and who doesn’t take photos ?!). The Gorilla Pod is a lightweight flexible camera tripod perfect for a variety of camera and because it’s bendy and light it’s perfect for packing even in the smallest of carry on bags.
