Having dreams to travel the world is one thing, but being well equiped to make the trip smooth sailing is a whole other ball game. With new gadgets out every month and travel tech also booming, there are plenty of ideas for presents under the tree. Here are our favourites:
Carrying bulky equipment isn’t ideal for the part-time photographer. Instead, an adventure camera like the GoPro HERO 8 is the perfect addition to anyone’s luggage – capable of capturing idyllic sunsets or tracking every movement through harsh terrains. If they don’t have one, Christmas is the perfect time to hand one over.
Having travelled to over 10 countries in the last two years, there’s one thing i’ve learned: your luggage bag will get battered and bruised. And if you aren’t willing to invest in a quality piece, you’ll find yourself replacing your suitcase every year. Victorinox’ hard shell option is both minimalist and robust. Your relative might skimp out but you know better – gift them a piece that will go the distance.
Scouring though documents at check-in isn’t ideal, nor is having your passport and tickets floating around the hotel room. If you know someone who hasn’t yet invested in a great travel wallet, this is the perfect item to complete their travel checklist. Coach has been around for nearly 60 years so you know you’re investing in a great product.
Much like a travel wallet, a toiletry bag is crucial to organisation and simplifying the packing side of things. Again, a toiletry bag will get tossed and turned countless time – shelling out on a quality piece will ensure they won’t have to replace it every year.
Just like a suitcase, your trusted backpack will need to a withstand of barrage of traffic. So again, give them something that will last and the Crumper backpack fits the bill. It’s also a simple style so you know it’s a safe option as a present.
There’s nothing worse than finding yourself stranded in a foreign city with no mobile battery or your camera dying at just the wrong time. Give the gift of battery life with a Belkin power bank. Belkin are known for their reliability with the 10,000mah version able to supply up to 70 hours of additional battery life to your iPhone. If you know someone always on the move, this is a seriously handy present.
What’s a trip without a fresh pair of boardies? Whether they’re island jumping in Europe or exploring the pacific, any beach-side holiday requires summer-inspired kit. And with the Aussie hot season around the corner, this is the perfect time to freshen up their wardrobe these slick Vacay boardies.
