Top 5 Gifts for the Travel Lover

Posted on

Ding dong merrily on the high street… It’s that time of year again, and if you’ve been wondering what to get for the travel lover in your life then wonder no longer. Not only can get you the best deals on all your train ticketsflights and hotels: you also get loyalty points to spend on amazing travel gifts!

ScotteVest Fleece 7.0

Question: how do you protect your gadgets, hide your valuables and get ready for any weather without filling a suitcase? You put everything you need in 23 cleverly concealed pockets in your coat, of course. The Fleece 7.0 has it all: bespoke hiding places for everything from an iPad to a smart phone, removable sleeves and padded protection for breakables. It looks great, too. From the top of a Himalayan Alp to the foot of the Empire State, travel chic doesn’t get much better than this.

Moleskine travel journal

Nothing says serious travel like a swanky notebook. Write down your thoughts in it, compose the next chapter of your latest novel – or use the back pocket to collect train tickets from all the places you’ve visited. Pick classic leather for the old school globetrotter look, or fabric bound for something a bit different. The important thing is to make sure it’s tough enough to withstand being thrown into rucksacks day after day, and big enough not to lose. Moleskine do a range of super-trendy notebooks in ruled and plain versions. They’re the favourite notebook of legendary travel scribe Brue Chatwin, too.

Camelbak “All Clear” water purification bottle

Anyone who’s ever made the mistake of drinking tap water in an exotic destination will understand the genius behind the Camelbak All Clear – a water bottle whose lid is also a UV purifier. Just 60 seconds in the portal and you’re good to go. Say farewell to funky tummy, and hello to not having to worry about how far you are from a toilet. It isn’t cheap, but it is worth it. Outstanding.

Bowers and Wilkins P5 headphones

Tired of being that guy – the one whose music is no secret to anyone else on the plane? Kick public playlists to the curb in style with the P5 heaphones from legendary audiophile manufacturers Bowers and Wilkins. Noise isolating ear cushions prevent any rogue beats from slipping out into the cabin, and they look amazing. Rock it, roll it, and hippity hop it all the way to your next destination. The only one who knows what’s really going on in there is you.

A personalised traveller’s map

Not all Christmas travel gifts are about the journey. Give the traveller in your life the perfect conversation starter with a personalised traveller’s map (you can get a great one from the loyalty scheme via Present Finder). You get a bag of 100 pins, colour coded five ways so you can create your own key to destinations: ones you’ve been to, ones you’d love to go to, ones you’ve lived in. Brilliant.

Got any favourite Christmas travel gifts of your own? Let us know about the best (and worst) ones you ever got! And don’t forget, when you book your train tickets and other travel arrangements through, you’ll earn points you can redeem in the loyalty scheme.
