Happy humpday all. Everyone else just feeling ready for a big long break to relax and chill? Glad I am not the only one! I can’t wait to have nothing to do – that is never really the case with me unfortunately. Anyways moving swiftly on to the penultimate post in our gift guide series. This one here is for the trendy traveller. So, if you know anyone like me with itchy feet and constantly on the move, or love jetting off to exotic places then hopefully you can grab a great gift for that globetrotter. Our guide is full of pretty and practical items so take a peek below.
These are a fab and thoughtful gift for those who are constantly jetting off to keep tabs on the places they have been. Scratch maps have become really popular in the past year or so and they really are uber cute – not only can they act as a poster, but they also ooze memories as you scratch away where you’ve been! Not only that but they can be a great way to plan your next trip!
Travel mugs are FAB! Whether it’s to keep you smoothie cool or soup hot but most of the time for that flat white, they are sustainable, reusable and just something everyone needs let alone a traveller. However, when going the distance you want the ones that are going to do the job. First up, this festive travel tumbler from Thermos is perfect for those looking to be eco-conscious this winter. Drinks will stay piping hot all day thanks to its Thermos ® vacuum insulation technology – and how cool is the tartan guys?! The Insulated Wide from Klean Kanteen is the best stainless steel coffee mug solution for hot coffee, hot tea or your favourite iced drinks. The climate Lock™ double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks hot for 10 hours and iced for 30 hours! Perfect when hiking round the Lakes.
If you know someone whose super organised when they travel and like to keep everything in one place then listen up. The Glo Travel Wallet ensures you won’t be fumbling at check-in, keeping all your important documents in one neat location.

Now, this is an unusual one but boy would it help me when visiting friends and family. Ever wandered round the city just trying to find somewhere to plonk down and get stuff done. With the Deskmate, I can now sit anywhere! This is such a useful little invention and it even comes in its own carry case. Deskmate encourages people stay more active throughout the day, whilst burning extra calories and improving posture. It’s standing desks.

You can never go wrong with buying someone a bit of festive knitwear to stay warm this winter. Make sure that special someone is travelling around in style with this cute beanie bobble and snug scarf from Buff. These make for idea stocking fillers destined to make your loved one feeling all warm inside and out.
Whether it’s a weekend trip or several weeks, the bags you take along are crucial! I am not one to haul around a load of luggage – I find it heavy and annoying. So, when possible I travel as light as possible – hand luggage is best! This was super chic rucksack from Fact+Fiction had so many different useful compartments and was a lot more spacious than I had expected. I managed to squeeze a weeks worth of clothes, toiletries etc in this trendy piece. I even managed to pack in this smaller eco rucksack from GlobalWakeUp, which I think is really cute – the perfect size for heading to the beach and sustainable too. I often travel with a laptop so when on the train so this stylish, slim bag means I can carry a laptop and accessories safely whilst on the move. The Grace Deluxe is lined with super soft faux fur to keep your laptop scratch free and protected, and the front pocket provides a bit of extra space for cables, pens, phone etc.
