5 Travel Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

unusual-valentines-gifts

If your better half has got the travel bug (clues: they’re forever rifling through Lonely Planet and have started using made up words like ‘wanderlust’), then it’s a safe bet that they’d love a travel related gift for Valentine’s Day. But with so many on the market, it’s hard to find an unusual gift that’s going to cut the mustard. Whether your partner is into trekking through the wilderness in South East Asia or just mooching around the English countryside, this handy V-Day gift guide for the travel obsessed lover has got it covered.

Tag Me Luggage Tag is a cute little airplane shaped bag tag that makes the perfect gift for the traveller that likes to accessorise. It’s also great for tackling those awkward moments at airports when trying to prove that plain black suitcase really is yours without rifling through your sundries mid airport lounge. It’s also available in two colours – perfect for adding a bit of style to your journey!

This next gift is great for anyone that’s been the unfortunate victim of a pesky pick pocket on their travels. Not only is the Undercover Phone Sleeve big enough to keep your MP3 player, keys, camera and bank card safe from prying hands, but it’s shockproof, splash proof, and tear proof! Cleverly disguised as an old envelope, it’ll keep your loved one’s valuables safe, and means that you can continue with those treasured Skype calls while they’re away!

Travelogue Travel Journal makes a great Valentines present for the wordsmiths among us – it’s a journal that’s ready made to plan trips with miniature Scratch Map® maps to complete on route, AND room to tuck in boarding passes, polaroids and notes. Why not up the ante and write a soppy Valentine’s Day note in the front, or hide some loving letters in the pages for your sweetheart to find on their travels?

If your other half is forever returning from trips with a pocketful of useless shrapnel in a myriad of currencies then this present won’t go unappreciated by both of you. Currency Money Bank is a piggy bank with a difference – six separate compartments mean your partner can organise their travel cash with ease! That and they’ll stop accidentally trying to buy you a Costa with Yen…

If your lover is forever asking you to sit on their suitcase while they fight with the zip, then this makes a great unusual gift to give them a helping hand. And not only does it keep the dust and dirt from getting on their clothes, but it also keeps their stinky trekking shoes from contaminating the rest of the hotel. It’s so effective it’ll have you wondering whether it’s really a present for them or for you!

5 Secret Santa Gift Ideas

secret-santa-gifts

Secret Santa is one of those traditions that sounds super fun, but when you pull a name out of a hat and realise you don’t know who the hell it is (let alone what they’d think was an awesome Christmas gift), it becomes more of a chore than a festivity. Here are a few ideas to get you out of a few sticky secret santa situations, from getting the creepy guy in the office to pulling out the names of people you’re still at the ‘how was your weekend?’ stage with.

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for the Office

Brown Paper Lunch Bag is the perfect gift for anyone at work that is, say, a little particular about their lunching habits. If they can always be heard complaining that someone’s taken their sandwiches or squished their fruit then this is the perfect gift for them. Designed to resemble the iconic American paper lunch bag, it’s also durable, reusable and insulated, keeping their hot food hot or cold drinks cold. Oh and they can personalise it too, so should they feel the need to write a passive aggressive ‘Keep Out’ note on it they can…

If you’ve got a colleague that you’re forever asking to complete tasks for you then finding out four months down the line your request went unheeded, give them a subtle yet festive hint with Robin Reindeer Memo. A smart looking memo holder that you can pop your notes in to remind Judy from accounts that you’re still waiting for her to pay that invoice from February…

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for your Family

It’s sometimes best to play it safe with family secret santa… Whilst you and your sister might find it hilarious to buy each other rude presents, Grandma might not find them as amusing. With that in mind, the Umbrella tea infuser makes the perfect gift for those family members that enjoy a nice cuppa – let’s face it, it’s bound to be most of them! Simply pop your favourite loose leaf tea inside the umbrella and watch it brew – a perfect stocking filler for all tea lovers.

And for the younger (or at least young at heart) contingent of the family, there’s the OMY Giant Colouring Poster. Designed to keep the littlens busy for hours, this poster sized colouring paper comes in a range of designs from Paris to Magic and there’s even a Christmas themed poster perfect for those seasonal colouring sessions. So if you need a rest from the excitement of children on a Christmas morning, give them this awesome present and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet.

Secret Santa Gift Ideas for your Friends

All groups of friends have a joker among them – the one who lifts the group spirits and is always on hand with a quip or an anecdote. If you’re lucky enough to pull their name out of the hat then buy them the Rubber Jonny – a pencil eraser that looks just like a condom. Designed to break the tension at any secret santa big reveals, it’s bound to raise a few smiles. That, and it’ll be great to see how many sexual innuendos follow!

Our next present is for the friend that you’re super pleased you got in the secret santa sweepstake. You Complete Me Christmas is a wooden jigsaw shaped like a Christmas tree that is not only festive and fun, but also houses a handwritten message of your choosing on the back. Put a personal joke you both share or just a cute little festive message and watch them piece the puzzle (literally) together of who gave it to them.
