If you have a travel lover in your life the following are some gorgeous gift ideas for the holiday season. Any of the below that I don’t already have are definitely on my wish list ( hint hint anyone ?!)
Away luggage is the travel gift dream . Their modern stylish design, pretty color options, 360 degree swivel wheels and clever extras such as the charging battery within the case make it top of the luggage wish list . Carry on suitcases start from €245 . You can add a monogram to the suitcase for €50 .
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.
Smaller gift ideas
