With Christmas day approaching, we decided to put together this useful gift guide for someone who often travels for business or just loves to go on holiday. The time to buy presents is now. Here is a list of gifts that any frequent traveller will adore!
It’s a traveller’s best friend and for the lighter traveller it’s the only luggage they’ll take. Pick a practical yet stylish bag for friends or family who are on the go. Hand luggage may be the best route to take when looking at bags as it cuts time spent in the airport and they are easier and more comfortable to move around with.
– Neck rest
We’ve all been through the dilemma of wanting to sleep on a plane but having nowhere but the hard window, a stranger’s shoulder or your own lap to rest your head. Why not solve this problem for a keen traveller by buying them a neck rest?
A new and useful gadget that has only been released recently is the ‘SleepPhones’. This pillow friendly take on traditional headphones consists of a headband that plugs into your phone and plays your music through clever inbuilt speakers. This way you are sure to get a good rest anywhere you are without uncomfortable ear plugs or clunky headphones. This could be a good gift for people who spend long hours travelling.

With internet access and a camera the smartphone’s uses for travellers abroad are many. Setting the Doro phone apart from the competition is its ‘Anywhere Sim’, allowing you to phone whilst you’re abroad at no extra charge; this means you can always stay in touch with family and friends whether you want to make them jealous with your holiday photos or just let them know you’ve arrived safely. Doro is also renowned for its reliability ‘the most reliable phone brand on the market’ (Which? Magazine).
Avoid getting bored while travelling – a tablet is perfect for watching films, surfing the web, working, talking, shopping etc. The tablet could perhaps be the ultimate item for the modern day traveller. It also means there’s no need to carry around DVD’s and a portable player. They may not be cheap but with a little research you can find some great value tablets.
-Scratch Map world poster
