As much I try and not ‘buy’ into the capitalist and consumerist holiday that is Christmas, sometimes I see it as saving the economy and making the world go round. One thing that does make the world go round is travel – at some point or another, we are always going somewhere whether it be domestic or international. That leads me nicely on to some gift ideas for the travellers in your life. And hey if you don’t have any travellers in your life, maybe it’s you? So as I would say ‘treat yourself’. Book the flight and maybe buy a few of the following to help you on your journey…
Do you know someone who likes documenting their travels via the written word? A budding blogger or maybe someone who likes to do things ‘old school’. And as much as we all love technology at times, a paper and pen doesn’t require charging.
This little A7 sized notebook from LILIPAD + LILIPUT* is perfect for those spur of the moment ideas, plans and if you need to write down someone’s number…
For all you shoppers, there is also a slot for your credit card (and receipts).
Do you have the friend in your life who you would call ‘extra’ or just likes shiny things? You may not be able to see them as their jewellery walks in the room before they do… When it comes to travel you’re usually short on space and that’s where accessories come in. They take outfits to the next level, from day to night and just add that extra oomph.
These are perfect for yourself, a partner or a friend who deserves to look good. I love the tennis bracelet for simple outfits or when attending a destination wedding. Best of all it comes in rose gold and gold too so you can layer them or mix and match depending on your mood. Or if you’re purchasing something for someone getting married in the next year, why not get them the gift of a wedding veil?
All jewellery can be found here.
Do you have that friend or family member who is always travelling for business? They’re probably getting up early, catching the first flight of the day or a redeye and working flat out. But their expenses are usually paid so the joke is on them. This business card case* is a small but robust gift that will see them from the boardroom to networking at the bar. It’s a hard life…
The world means business after all.
We all have that one friend whose passport looks like 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ album cover and frankly there is no excuse. Give them the hint with a new passport case* and they’ll be able to explore the world in style in 2020.
By Jess D liquid lipsticks are the perfect gift for the traveller in your life obsessed with beauty aka me.
Best of all when it comes to beauty there are no rules. Liquid lipsticks double as eyeshadow and a blush when blended out, so essentially you’re getting three for the price of one. Oh fun.
It’s simply a one 50ml daily bottle, which has proven faster absorption rates, higher optimisation rates and are more easily digestible, than other methods of taking supplements. Nutritional supplements exist to ensure that your body is getting enough of the proper vitamins and nutrients needed for your hair, skin and nails to thrive.
Do you have that friend who you’ve never seen without lashes? Do they spend longer deciding what lashes to put on than picking and outfit? Then the Ardell Faux Mink Lashes Gift Set* is for them. Not only is it affordable at £12.95, it slots perfectly into hand luggage and it means they’ll be batting those lashes from day to night.
…and who doesn’t love a discount?
If none of the gift ideas above are suitable nothing is better than travel or accommodation vouchers. That way they can choose the flights and accommodation style to suit their trip needs.

I love concerts, 6am flights, 90s R&B, cancelled plans and wine. My blog Memoirs and Musings is all about documenting my travels infusing my personal experiences (memoirs) and a few musings along the way.
