  1. One of the thoughts whirring through my head in the middle of the night is the thought of what to get my wife for Christmas. At least that’s one problem now solved. Thank you for some inspired suggestions.

  2. Finishing off a week working in London where I saw a couple of those leather satchels. Now I know how to source them as I’m sure that my wife would adore one.

  3. Wow, what a luxurious and diverse collection of travel-inspired gifts! The PROPS® carry-on with its innovative leg system is a game-changer, and the Cambridge Satchel Portrait Backpack beautifully merges tradition with modern convenience. The Starlet Luggage exudes glamor, and Tom & Teddy’s swim shorts are not just stylish but practical too. The MAG:3 charging tray and Lunya’s cashmere travel set add thoughtful touches of convenience and comfort. The Oblio wireless charger with a built-in UV sanitizer is truly cutting-edge. This guide unfolds a panorama of possibilities, showcasing elegance, innovation, and style for the wanderlust in all of us.

  4. I’m hopeless when it comes to presents.

    My problem is that I don’t think wide enough.

    90% of the suggestions here I would never have thought of. Once someone gives me an idea I know what would work as a present for my girlfriend.

  5. It really is time that my partner upgraded her luggage, some of it is in danger of disintegrating.

    But it’s not that simple a choice I think she’d be more than delighted to receive the on the go wellness kit or the travel kit.

    Time for me to do some thinking.

  6. Swimwear from Tom and Teddy could be one of those presents that promises a lot more. We’ve blanked out the gift 2 weeks of February for a holiday that’s a lot warmer than Ohio.

    1. Thanks, Kenny – we’ve been running these for quite a few years now and, if anything, they’ve just got bigger each year, so certainly no intention of stopping. In fact, in 2024, we are planning on more regular gift and product round-ups to keep people informed of new products as they become avaialble.

  7. It has to be “The Hero” for my partner. Praise like that from Vogue is rare and a real compliment to be called the Rolls Royce of vanity cases.

  8. Coming to golf at a relatively late age my wife was reluctant to wear a golf glove to start with. Steadily she realised that playing over here on the warm California coast her hands can get quite clammy which can lead to a hook.

    Recently her game has improved a lot from wearing a fairly basic glove. I think she could shave more shots from her handicap with a glove from Vivan Tee Golf. It’s so beautifully designed that it’s almost a fashion accessory.

    1. I’m sure all the finer details gradually add up to make a difference on the course. Yes, you can have good and bad days… but if you’re putting all the basics in place to the best of your ability, then you should reap dividends. The same is true with sailing which is a sport I’m more familiar with, but even things like running too… I’m sure it’s probably true with all sports. Have a great Christmas, Jez, and may it be filled with birdies of the turkey variety!

  9. It’s December. Time to switch on and focus on Christmas. This is the weekend to get it over and done with – ONLINE.

  10. This is an exclusive selection of gifts across the very broad theme of travel. What’s more it has clearly been curated with two very discerning filters in place for quality and style.

  11. How user friendly is that DJI drone? How do you learn to use it? Video or instruction manual? How long is it on average before you start to get reasonable results?

    1. I don’t have this specific model, Kev, but I have had several DJI drones over the years, and they have all been super-easy to operate. I’d say the main issue is one of getting the firmware updated, and ensuring your app is compatible with your device, but operationally I would say they are super-easy to run.

  12. Am I right in thinking that luggage is one of the things that you never buy for yourself? I know that when I go on a trip I reach for case at the last minute, think for 30 seconds that it needs replacing, forget about it and pack. Thats what makes receiving luggage as a present such a luxury.

    1. I’d never really thought about it, Attesh, but you could be right! Much better to buy it in advance (have chance to choose what you’d like, etc.) than wait for it to truly fail (broken zip, wheels, or whatever) whilst in use, and have to purchase a replacement in a hurry.

  13. It was beginning to prey on my mind that I didn’t have anything lined up for my wife’s Christmas present.

    Last year I got the impression that she wasn’t impressed with a top-up of her regular perfume. After checking this post I should do better this year.
