We’ve all got a jet-setting friend that can be hard to buy for at Christmas. To make your shopping easy, we put together some gift ideas here at AusTraveller HQ that will meet the needs of a frequent flyer lifestyle… Connectivity, convenience and comfort are all included in these gifts.
If you miss the Christmas deadline – don’t worry, these gifts are good year-round! So, here are our “first class” gift ideas (we really want them all!)…
Belroy travel wallet $159
No more shuffling through your bags, looking for your passport. Get them a Bellroy Travel Wallet so they can keep all of their important documents in one place while fitting snugly the your pocket. The wallet has two note sections, a tailored passport pouch, card slots and even a handy pen. Bellroy is an Australian company, and all their products come with a 3 year warranty.
TripIt Pro gift subscription $49
Give a year of stress-free travel with a Trip-It pro gift subscription, one of the most known and loved travel planners on the market. With instant organising power and indispensable real-time alerts, TripIt Pro costs only US$49 a year — a fair price to pay for travel peace of mind. They will love you for it.
Cocoon Grid-It organiser $25
We’re still debating if this is the coolest travel accessory we’ve come across all year… Cocoon has developed a travel organiser called Grid-it, and the name sums it all up. You grid-lock just about anything you want onto these boards. Cords, adapters, chargers, makeup, toiletries – anything!
Trakdot luggage tracker $75
For those who fly regularly with expensive items in their luggage this gift could save them a lot of time, stress and money. Trakdot is a high quality luggage tracking device. Simply place it in your bags, and it automatically talks to your phone throughout the travel process. This little device is very intelligent, it knows when it’s gong through security, in the air and on the baggage line. It’s one of the best ways to track your luggage (or kids!?).
Plaza Premium lounge gift card $147
Your frequent flyer friend may already be a loyalty member to an airline with lounge access, but what happens when you land somewhere that doesn’t have a partner lounge? Plaza Premium lounges are available to anyone to use or who hold a Priority Pass. There’s over 34 lounges to use a Plaza gift card, including here in Sydney and Brisbane International airports. They can put their feet up before the flight, grab a drink or even a massage!
Leather portfolio for laptop and accessories $180
This beautiful leather folio organiser by Savage is stitched using soft cowhide leathers. You can fit an MacBook air or pro, iPad Mini, a notebook/notepad or diary, documents, a mobile phone, business/credit cards, earphones and a pen holder. The surface of the distressed leather will give an rustic aged look after daily use. It would make for a great travel accessory for a business or leisure trip!
