We all know that person who spends more time in exotic locations than at home. They seem to always be visiting some beautiful beach or luxurious hotel, scaling a mountain or touring ancient ruins. It makes buying them a Christmas present really hard! They don’t need anything for the home because they are rarely in it and they travel light. So, what do you get the travel fan for Christmas? Here are a few ideas.
LUMIX DMC-TZ100 CAMERA
This one tops the list of presents because, as someone who travels a lot, there’s nothing better than taking plenty of pictures. But carrying around a large, heavy camera isn’t ideal and is always at risk during the baggage transfer process! That’s why Panasonic have created the Lumix DMC-TZ100 with its small size and big features. The camera is the right size to fit into a jacket pocket but still comes with a crystal-clear LEICA zoom lens and powerful 20.1-megapixel image resolution. It also takes 4K videos yet weighs just 310 grams. It even comes in three case colour options for the fashion-conscious traveller!
When you are travelling, there is always the concern that your devices run out of charge and you can’t get in touch with anyone or take those magic photos. That’s why the second best present for a travel fan is a power bank and there are plenty to choose from. The Anker PowerCore is one of the most popular and combines power with a small size and light weight. It can charge major phone brands such as the iPhone and the Samsung models as well as many other devices that charge via a USB connection.
Some devices we use are waterproof but others are not so when the traveller is at the poolside, near the sea or anywhere close to water, those devices are at risk. The Aquapac is a handy case that you can pop an iPad or other device into and seal it to protect it from water damage. It has a conductive splash proof cover and you can still use the touch screen device while inside the bag.
FUN STOCKING FILLERS
Sometimes you just want fun little items to fill a stocking or to show someone you are thinking about them and there are plenty to choose from. Collapsible cups, mugs and water bottles are ideal when you want to save space in your luggage while a travel washing line lets you air your laundry no matter where you are. And don’t forget the mini duct tape roll – you never know what you might need that for!
