Christmas Gifts for Travel Lovers

Stylish, silly, functional and fashionable. Enjoy our hand-chosen selection of Christmas gifts for travel lovers!


Christmas Gifts Astis Mittens

Astis long-cuff ski-mittens are so cool! I would recommend the lovely brown Selous style with black cuffs. I love the beautiful beadwork designs, all hand-sewn on high quality suede leather, lined with Polartec® Thermal Pro® High Loft insulation and injected with silicone during the tanning process for further waterproofing. Their length and cut allows for a ski jacket to fit snugly inside the fur trim, protecting the wrists and hands from the snow. They are made in the USA and can be bought at Lone Mountain Ranch, or you can order them through us. TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts Anthropologie Ornaments

Anthropologie's felt Christmas ornaments are colourful and quirky, adding fun and sparkle to your festive foliage! If I had to pick a favourite it would be this adorable rabbit with gold boots, scarf and a tiny Christmas wreath. These make fantastic little gifts for anyone you're seeing in the lead up to Christmas. I also love the glittery llama which bring back memories of my travels to Machu Picchu. It's almost impossible to choose between the charming sledding mouse, figure-skating fox, polar bear in a jolly red jumper, regal beagle and patchwork reindeer... Best take them all!

Christmas Gifts Metier London

The divine Wanderer Messenger bag by Metier London is perfect for travelling. Whilst it comes with a serious price tag, it is very cool, elegant and perfect for a smart work-trip as well as a stylish luxury holiday. The style is both classic and functional (cross-body strap and spacious interior with three separate compartments), made from high-quality durable leather, with colours ranging from smooth calfskin mushroom to buffalo cognac, brown suede and Atelier calfskin black. It's my favourite flight carry-on bag (after my trusty, everlasting Louis Vuitton bag!). TAKE ME THERE >


Christmas Gifts Aspinalls Travel Wallet

Travel wallets are so practical, keeping everything you need in one place and well-organised. Even though most people now use an app for flight details and boarding passes, you have to rely on your phone battery to last, which is why I always travel with hard-copies as back up. These beautiful Aspinalls travel wallets, hand-crafted from fine Italian calf leather with a soft suede interior, have separate tabbed sections for currency, passport, visa and documents. They come in many lovely colours, but I personally love the bright blue saffiano slimline travel wallet, which costs £135, plus £15 to be personalised with embossed initials. Splashing out on a special, elegant travel wallet add's even more excitement to jetting off on an adventure. TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts Smythson Notebook

Keep a journal on your travels with this neat little 'Travels and Experiences' Panama pocket notebook by Smythsons. Handcrafted in England using the finest crossgrain leather, this notebook is lightweight, featuring 128 leaves of gilt-edged, pale blue Featherweight paper, and comes in brilliant colours: emerald, ochre, burnt orange, sea green and pink. Smythson's range of travel accessories include a Travel Pouch, Travel Jewellery box, Travel Backgammon and Travel Passport Case, all of which make wonderful presents that will be used again and again.

Christmas Gifts Tiffany Co Luggage Label

Tiffany & Co. offer a range of luxurious travel accessories for the modern adventurer. Amongst their fabulous globetrotter suitcases, globe keyrings, passport covers and luggage tags, there are plenty of gift options, large and small, that would be perfect for a Christmas treat. The passport covers are particularly cool because they have three interior credit card slots. The luggage labels are also excellent gifts, and if like me you have numerous suitcases and carry-on bags that you use for different occasions, you can never have too many luggage tags. These are finished in the iconic Tiffany Blue®; an elegant grain leather design with adjustable buckle strap and I.D. window. TAKE ME THERE >


Christmas Gifts Ugg Slippers

These UGG Woodlyn Moc slippers are great for slipping on as soon as you're back from a day's skiing. They're made of soft suede moc with three layers of cushioning foam - lovely for barefeet, have a rubber sole for protection and are very flexible. They're not at all naff like some slippers can be to wear in public and they work really well for wandering around a chalet. They're my favourite new thing, coming in either black or chestnut (which I prefer), and make you feel smart, warm and cosy. I also think they're great to travel with in your carry-on, slipping on as soon as you're settled into your plane seat and want to relax on the journey. TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts By Terry Lip Balm

Baume de Rose Le Soin levres is my winter lip care of choice. It's sold at Space NK and I'd recommend getting the tub as it's thicker. This is brilliant for travelling as your lips get so dry on flights. It's a must-pack for skiing holidays when protecting your lips from the elements is so important. I find this lip-balm to be very nourishing, fast-working and thankfully it leaves a non-sticky finish. It is vitamin-rich, the rose blossom essential wax helps to soothe, repair and combat dryness, whilst the shea butter, antioxidant vitamin E and ceramides help strengthen and protect. Everyone should travel with one in their carry-on! TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts M & S Jumper

Everyone has to have a naff woolly jumper to get into the Christmas spirit and spread some cheer as winter settles in! M&S novelty Christmas jumpers are fab, there's a range of fun options for men, women and children, and they make great silly presents for skiing holidays or for curling up by the fire on a cold winter's evening. You can choose between the novelty jumpers, more traditional patterns, cosy cable-knits and soft cashmeres. I love the pom-poms, the penguins singing silent night, and the 'Les Trois Vallees' ski jumper. They provide the perfect 'apres-ski' look for those that don't take life too seriously. TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts Belstaff Watch Hat

I love the classic style of Belstaff 'Watch Wool Hats' for men - soft beanies, knitted from lambswool to be thick, warm and versatile for winter adventures. Whilst helmets are a must on the slopes, I like to have a woolly hat in my pocket or rucksack for enjoying lunch al fresco. Go for the classic dark ink colour, or festive Belstaff red. TAKE ME THERE > 


Christmas Gifts Barbour Socks

Barbour Fairisle Boot Socks with Christmas reindeers on them for £15.95 - what more could you wish for! Socks are on everyone's Christmas list, and these are fun and practical, thick-knitted for lasting comfort and shape retention. Their pattern adds some cheer to a wintery country walk with a splash of colour just beneath the boot-cuffs. Plus, they are just as delightful to wear indoors as outdoors. TAKE ME THERE >


Christmas Gifts Swims Penny Loafers

SWIMS have reinvented the classic loafer to offer functional and stylish men's footwear for a beach holiday. Using innovative technology to enhance water resistance, breathability, traction and comfort, these loafers can be worn in the water (great for rocky beaches or avoiding sea urchins), and then kept on for lunch in the smartest waterfront restuarant. Designed in varying styles and colours, SWIMS loafers are complete with a non-marking rubber outsole and comfortable EVA insole, featuring state-of-the-art ventilation and drainage technology. Finally some stylish beach footwear for men! TAKE ME THERE >

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.

Take a look at my travel diaries for food for thought on your next trip...
