Globetrotting used to be the reserve of the rich and famous, but these days people jet all over the world. In this blog, we’re going to look at a selection of gifts for people who are regular travellers with some ideas for handy items for when they are away.

Wash and Wear Travel bag set
A set of two canvas drawstring bags, this set is designed to help you separate dirty washing from fresh clothes when you’re travelling. Featuring two black ribbon ties and labelled “to wash” and “to wear” for easy identification, these bags are perfect for people who travel regularly who like to keep their clothes fresh.
Minipresso Portable Espresso Maker
This compact, portable espresso maker allows you to make barista-quality espresso with nothing more than coffee beans, hot water and your hands. So how does this witchcraft work you ask? Inside the machine it is engineered so that you just have to pop off the top and bottom, fill with ground coffee, fill with hot water and pump it with your hands. After a few pumps, the internal pressure reaches 116PSI (8 Bar) which is the same as a full sized espresso machine. This pressure then forces the coffee out the spout and into your cup, creating a perfect cup of strong coffee. For people who don’t want to carry ground coffee with them, there is a version that uses Nescafe’s Nespresso capsules. This is a perfect gift for travellers that are particular about their coffee.
