Looking for an inspiring gift for someone who loves to travel? We’ve got 10 of the best travel gifts that make the perfect present, including our favourite way to personalise luggage.
We might not be able to travel at the moment, but restrictions will be lifted at some point and we’re full of hope for the future. Perhaps it’s for a birthday or anniversary, or just a Friday pick-me-up. Whatever your reason, sending a travel inspired gift with a promise for a future full of travel is guaranteed to brighten someone’s day. You never know, when the time comes, you might even get to go along for the ride.
1. Personalised luggage strap, £35
A thoughtful gift will go down even better at the moment, when we can’t be together. Our personalised luggage straps add a little extra security to your hold luggage and make your suitcase easy to spot on the luggage carousel. They can be monogrammed with up to three letters in silver or gold foil and are the perfect personalised travel gift. They fit a medium or large suitcase and are designed to fit perfectly around the silhouette of our Clifton suitcase. They come in a choice of four colours—mint, taupe, blush or black.
2. Chelsea overnight bag, £120
We might be biased but we think our Chelsea overnight bag is one of the best travel holdalls on the market, and our customers seem to agree. It’s the perfect piece of hand luggage as it slots neatly under the seat in front of you for plane travel, and is also a great gym bag. It comes with twin carry handles and a shoulder strap, with a laptop slip pocket inside that fits a screen up to 13”.
3. Personalised bag tag, £19.50
Another great travel gift that will show you’ve gone to extra effort, our personalised bag tags are a chic addition to a handbag, backpack or holdall. They can be monogrammed with up to two letters in silver or gold foil, though we think just one initial is the chicest way to go. Like our personalised luggage straps, they come in four colours—mint, taupe, blush or black.
4. Stirling umbrella, £35
We’re a British brand, so it would be remiss of us not to include this classic umbrella in our round up of best travel gifts. This smart design comes in a chic, matte sleeve and has a Teflon coated canopy. It’s perfect for the man in your life and is built to withstand even the wildest of weather.
5. Packing cubes, £45 set of 6, £30, set of 4
Our travel packing cubes really are a travel game changer, so if you know a frequent traveller, then trust us, this will be one of the best travel gifts they’ve ever received. Use them to separate tops from bottoms and keep your suitcase neat and tidy. They’re sized to drop neatly into our Clifton suitcase, though they will of course work in any suitcase. The mesh lid means you can see at a glance what’s inside, and the strong compression zip means you can pack even more in.
6. Smart shirt packing cube, £30
Another great travel gift for the boys, the innovative design of this packing cube fits two shirts and keeps collars crisp and shirts crease-free. It zips up neatly and drops into a suitcase to keep packing extremely organised; the perfect travel accessory.
7. Clifton cabin case, £164
We think our best-selling suitcase is one of the best travel gifts you’ll find, and it’s sure to elevate your travel wardrobe, wherever you’re heading. Clifton now comes in two new colours of cornflower blue and sage green and in three sizes—cabin, medium and large. Its best features? It’s lightweight but still extremely strong, it has a twist-grip handle to ease pressure on your wrist when packed full, and it’s super easy to wheel. Trust us when we say that this is an extremely covetable piece of hand luggage. Gift this, and you’ll be in their good books forever.
8. Stirling lie-flat holdall, £185
One of our most innovative designs and more formal pieces of luggage, what this travel holdall doesn’t feature isn’t worth worrying about. It has pockets for every purpose, and even comes with a complimentary garment carrier for a suit jacket or dress. It unzips to lie flat so it’s really easy to pack, and even has a base pocket designed to house a wet umbrella. Yep, we’re still British.
9. Chelsea daypack, £80
A smart and chic slimline backpack, this classic bag makes a great travel gift and has a zipped pocket for a laptop with a screen up to 13”. It’s got a neat silhouette and is perfect for the daily commute.
10. Bridgford holdall, £69
A carefully crafted piece of casual luggage, this holdall comes in a charcoal grey marl and has a handy shoe compartment on the outside to keep your clothes and other packing away from your dirty soles. It’s the perfect bag for a weekend away in the countryside, so if you play your cards right, perhaps you can engineer that too?
