Featherweight Luxe 2i from T3 Haircare UK Make way for the ultimate travel hair dryer! T3 introduces the next generation of drying. No longer do you need to use those terrible hotel hair dryers! The Featherweight Luxe 2i is Ion Generator-enhanced for more beautiful results. Dry hair with innovative T3 Tourmaline® and SoftAire™ technologies plus a Tourmaline Ceramic Brush for maximum benefits. Regular dryers can take 30 minutes to dry hair, using a hurricane-like airflow that causes damage, frizz and flyaways. The Featherweight Luxe 2i is clinically proven to dry faster than regular dryers while improving your hair health and appearance. Osmo Pocket from DJI How do you capture those travel moments worth keeping? As the smallest 3-axis stabilized handheld camera DJI has ever designed, the compact and intelligent Osmo Pocket turns any moment into a cinematic memory.

Women’s Lifaloft™ Hybrid Insulator Jacket from Helly Hansen A must have in every adventurer’s wardrobe, this is a great layering or travel piece with a mix of lightweight shell fabric and a slick face stretch fabric. Developed in cooperation with PrimaLoft®, Lifaloft™ is a combination of Lifa®’s unique insulation structure and PrimaLoft®’s extensive knowledge in synthetic insulation. It is lighter and less bulky than standard polyester insulation alternatives, yet is warmer due to the unique structure of Lifa® fibers woven into the construction. It is also a more sustainable choice due to a lower water and carbon foot print. Online photography course from Photography Concentrate Have you ever wondered what the secrets are behind jaw-dropping travel photos, the kind National Geographic photographers take every single day? Buy her a course from Photography Concentrate. Instead of boring explanations about the different camera functions, you learn by seeing and doing – so you’ll learn everything you need to know, as quickly and easily as possible. It gives you all the essential information with absolutely no fluff, so you avoid all those time-sucking guide books, online guides and camera manuals. Travel folio from Bellroy This compact travel folio has a leather divider inside to store your cards and boarding passes, and even hide cash in the back for extra peace of mind. There’s space for multiple passports, plus a micro pen lets you fill in departure cards on the fly. Feel secure, arranged and relaxed. Empressa eau de parfrum from Penhaligons As one would expect of an Empressa, she travels in style: with her abundant pearls, mirrors and fine silks. She is the jewel in the crown. The rose in the desert. She rises above all others in stature, in refinement, in grace and in beauty. Her queenly airs are clothed in splendour. Like her scent, she leaves a seductive and lasting impression., Florals and fruits are exquisitely combined, tamed, because whilst she is certainly sweet she is anything but cloying. A rare find indeed. Chubby Barrel quilted-stripe travel bag from Anya Hindmarsh Anya Hindmarch’s Chubby bag is reworked for Pre-AW18 with barrel bag silhouette, stripe with vibrant rainbow hues. It’s crafted with rolled top handles and a quilted exterior – a hallmark of the namesake collection – and opens to reveal a navy nylon-lined interior with a single zip-fastening pocket. Attach the adjustable shoulder strap before taking it to the gym as well as weekends away. Want to feature in one of our gift round-ups?

  1. Take it from me gentlemen you can’t go wrong with something like the travelwrap. My wife has got half a wardrobe of these kinds of wraps and pashminas etc. If I’m away on business a wrap is often my default option for a present. She says that I don’t understand the need for different shades to give her options with her wardrobe – which makes it easy for me.

  2. Fortunately my partner likes to travel light which does make things easier. She is always very organised but I think the Travel Folio from Bellroy is very cleverly designed. Do they do one that is a little more macho looking for us men?

    1. Hi Geoff… they have another one called the ‘travel wallet’ (as opposed to the ‘travel folio’) which might be more what you’re looking for…? Regards, Paul

  3. Women and hair is one of the great unexplored territories. I don’t know what’s going on. What I do know is that my wife is moaning a lot about her hair dryer and her hair. So if I buy her this Featherweight Luxe 2i thingy it might solve a lot of problems. Christmas present problem sorted. Thanks.

  4. Is there any feedback with the online photography course? Although my partner isn’t the most patient of listeners – it’s OK she doesn’t read ALTB – I still think the best way to learn is with some feedback. Otherwise you can keep on making the same mistakes over and over again. It must be easy to upload your images and get an experienced pro to respond with some pointers.

  5. I’ve heard Penhaligon’s custom makes a scent for you in their store. Would you know how much that would put me back? Or is it just better to buy their pre-made scents?

  6. I’m sorely tempted by the hairdryer. It looks to be both effective and lightweight – you don’t normally get both! I wonder how compact it is… time for a little more research, I think, but so far so good!

  7. My partner struggles with skin problems particularly at this time of year when there are biting chill winds.

    She’s a big fan of the Miracle Broth as it helps to keep her skin moisturised. She thinks it is a good investment so I’ll get her some as a Christmas present.

  8. Christmas and my Birthday are always difficult for my girlfriend. My Birthday’s on 30th December. Too late to roll everything up into a combined Xmas / Birthday present. So there’s always a little gesture present on 25th and something bigger on the 30th.

    Well this year I got something small later,
    the Osmo Pocket Camera, so I ain’t complaining.

  9. I can’t believe Christmas is rapidly rolling around again, I’m not impressed! Can’t say I’m a fan of the C word but I do like checking out gifting ideas. The Osmo Pocket thing is a new one to me as I didn’t know anything like that existed. It’s such a brilliant idea because even with a decent but older model iPhone stabilisation can be a problem. I checked out the website and they do a lot of funky photo related things like the god awful selfie sticks but also tripods, which I’ve been thinking of buying for a little while now. I’ve also been looking for a new waterproof padded coat to replace my old Karrimor one so I’ll have to check out the Helly Hanson one, thanks for the tip! As usual I seem to end up using Christmas gift idea posts to buy myself things!
