Everyone who’s ever been on a long-haul flight (or short) knows that a travel pillow is a must. There’s nothing worse than having your head rolling around everywhere while you’re trying to sleep.
If your giftee is forever hopping on a flight, gifting them a luxury carry on bag is a wonderful idea. July make some of the best quality luggage on the market and you can also personalise each piece by having it monogrammed.
I don’t know about you, but I could always use help packing, and these packing cubes make it super easy to utilise your luggage space. Any globe hopper would love opening these on Christmas morning.
Upgrade your bestie from the clear clip-seal bag they’ve been using to get through customs and buy them a beautiful clear cosmetics case.
If your giftee is forever losing their passport, give them a passport holder to keep it in, preferably a colourful one as they’ll stand out better at the bottom of a bag.
Everyone needs a good cosmetics cases and this one just happens to come with a range of travel jars and bottles that they can put all their goodies into.
