Aesop has put together a set especially made for helping you look and feel your best after a flight. Complete with hand soap and cream, a face mask, lip cream, and toothpaste you’ll be able to pamper yourself when you’re thousands of feet up in the air.

One of the worst feelings in the world is when you reach for your phone to take a picture or look at a map and have it die on you right then and there. That’s why a portable charger is one of the best investments a traveller can make. Compact and easy to carry around, it won’t have you frantically running around looking for the nearest power outlet. Anker makes some of the best power banks on the market, with most of them providing up to 20% faster charging so you won’t have to wait too long before you can Google what your next destination should be.

Everlane Weekender Bag

Finding the perfect bag has got to be one of the biggest struggles for a traveller. It’s got to be the right size, weight, material, and maybe even colour if that’s one of your priorities (don’t worry, we don’t judge). Lucky for us, there are some pretty good options out there. One that we would recommend is Everlane’s ReNew Transit Weekender bag. It’s a very versatile bag with a size that could work either for a short weekend trip, as the name suggests, or to complement your larger suitcase for when you head on longer trips. Each bag is also made from 36 recycled plastic bottles which gives us a more environmentally friendly alternative to other bags on the market.

Sony’s Noise Cancelling Headphones

Forget earplugs, good quality noise cancelling headphones are a godsend, especially on noisy flights or train journeys. A good pair can help you forget that you’re even squeezed into a cramp seat and instead help you relax and move along time. An option we’d like to recommend is Sony’s WH-1000MX3 noise cancelling wireless headphones. They’re a great set with superb sound quality, great noise cancelling capabilities and a sleek look to back it all up. With these, you won’t have to worry about any crying babies ruining your beauty sleep.

Scratch Map

Once you’ve come back home from your latest trip, there’s usually a sense of achievement and satisfaction. A sense of ‘We’ve done it, and we had the best time of our lives.’ One way of bottling up that beautiful feeling is with a scratch map. If you’re not familiar with the concept, a scratch map is essentially a world map where you can scratch off the cities and countries you’ve been to which will reveal their different colour. What you’re left with is a personalised, visual representation of your travel goals and achievements.

Available for £14.36. Click here to check it out.

We know that buying presents can sometimes be a bit of a stressful time, but we guarantee any of these recommendations will set a wanderluster’s heart a-fluttering. Next time when they go out on their next adventure and use some time you’ve given them, they’ll definitely be thinking of you with a smile on their face.
