TRANSIT-FRIENDLY GIFTS TO HELP REACH HIS TRAVELLING GOALS
If he has travelling as one of his new year’s resolutions, it’s only right that you gift accordingly. Get him a Christmas present that will take him places this year, so he can hop on a plane knowing he’s set for his adventures.
When it comes to buying Christmas gifts for someone who loves to travel, there are a few pieces of criteria to hit – comfortable, easy to pack and useful. Let’s start with the obvious: travel luggage. This leather holdall is ideal for overnight stays in the UK, flights and longer trips (if he can pack light). If he’s shoving his toothbrush in with his socks, give him the gift of organisation with this black grained leather wash bag. With a grained finish similar to the leather holdall to match, it’s a functional and beautifully constructed accessory that he won’t have realised he’s been missing.
Sticking with accessories, this baseball cap in an autumnal chestnut tone is an absolute must. A classic piece of casual headwear, it’s made from 100% brushed wool that will keep his head warm in the cooler months. As functionality goes, you can’t beat it – it can also double up as a mask for a late-night flight, or keep the sun out of their eyes if they’re jetting off somewhere warmer.
Another underrated gift idea for the traveller is an easy to wear overshirt. Our take is crafted from a fine cotton needlecord with added stretch for comfort. Overshirts are ideal for layering, useful for when you’re hopping on and off the plane and regularly changing temperatures. For something warmer, this navy wadded jacket is just the ticket for travelling to cooler destinations, which can also wear it under a thicker coat when the cold really bites.
