Airfly Pro

The airfly pro is a travel gift idea for people who own wireless bluetooth headphones

These days more people use Bluetooth headphones compared to wired headphones. The Airfly Pro from Twelve South lets you use your Bluetooth headphones on a plane. We recommend also getting a plane audio adapter as many planes use dual sockets. With the Airfly Pro you'll be able to use headphones like the AirPods Pro which feature vastly better noise cancellation than most airline headsets.

Apple AirTags

Apple Airtags

Apple AirTags are the ultimate tracking tag for your valuables. Unlike the Tile, AirTags can help you find your lost item, even when it's out of range of your iPhone as they can securely connect to any iPhone. I use an AirTag in my wallet and backpack when travelling and it gives me peace of mind knowing I can track them down if I leave them behind. It's also become more common for people to pop an AirTag in their checked-in luggage so they can track it if it gets lost during travel.

July Carry On

July Carry On Bag

The July Carry-On is one of the best pieces of luggage you can buy. It features a super tough polycarbonate shell that will last forever. The wheels are extremely quiet and will literally glide through the airport and the handle can be raised and lowered to any position making it a joy to hold. The carry-on has a built-in (and removable) USB power hub, laundry bag and a compression system.

I've used July bags on my world travels and they've been the best bag I've had. You can also personalise these bags to make them a truly unique and special gift.

Billabong 'The Crusher' Straw Hat

Billabong Crusher Hat is a great gift idea for someone planning a backpacking trip

I've been asked by strangers multiple times on my travels where I've got my hat. It's The Crusher Hat by Billabong. This hat can be thrown into your luggage (and literally crushed). It's made from paper straw and looks great. The vegan leather band has saved my hat from blowing away numerous times. While this is sold as a men's hat, it will look good on anyone.

Kathmandu Heli Lightweight Down Jacket

The Kathmandu Heli Jacket is a lightweight down jacket that has minimum weight but maximum warmth. You'll hardly notice you've packed this jacket but it will come in handy when the weather gets nippy. It packs down into its own pocket which makes it super convenient for travel. It's available in fits for both men and women.

Louenhide Maggie Cosmetic Case

Maggie Cosmetic Case

The Maggie Cosmetic Case from Louenhide features three zipped compartments to store your skincare, makeup and toiletries all in one bag. It comes with a hanging hook and is made from Vegan Leather.
