Christmas gifts for travel lovers, for under £50

We might have over 100 years of expertise in luggage under our belts, but we don’t just do suitcases. We’ve cooked up a whole host of travel accessories that are designed to make travelling easier than ever. With Christmas around the corner, we’ve rounded up our favourite gifts for travel lovers, each for under £50.

Chelsea wash bag (£20 for the small, £30 for the large)

Neatly designed to be exactly the right size to drop into our Juno and Clifton hard-sided cases, our wash bag sits perfectly alongside our packing cubes – get the whole set and it’s a bit like Tetris (remember that?) but in 3D packing format. The top carry handle of the wash bag means you can lift it out of your suitcase quickly and easily, and it’s made from a tough and durable nylon, that’s water-resistant, naturally. You’ve got two sizes to choose from, and it comes in a classic black or grey.

Stirling smart shirt packing cube (£35)

Know a frequent business traveller? This innovative shirt packing solution is for the person who loves everything just so. It’s designed to fit two shirts, and has a plastic insert that you fold the shirts around, and tuck the collar into, to keep them crisp. Once the shirts are in, folded as if fresh from the shop shelf, you simply zip it up and drop it in your case. It’s the perfect gift for any busy business traveller.

Infinity bamboo sleep mask (£11.50)

We know, they’re a bit like Marmite, but if you know a frequent traveller, then we guarantee this eye mask will be well received. It’s made from bamboo, so it’s naturally anti-microbial, temperature regulating and breathable. The wide band means it’s super comfortable, and will give you full black out, with no daylight or harsh aeroplane light creeping in. It’s part of our curated online shop of travel accessories by other brands we know and love.

Packing cubes (£45 for a set of 6, £30 for a set of 4)

If you haven’t heard of packing cubes – where have you been? This nifty packing hack has gone down a storm on social media recently (@NadiaAnya called them a ‘serious gamechanger’ on her Instagram stories just yesterday in fact) and for good reason. Packing cubes are the ultimate travel accessory – you use them to to organise your suitcase and sort your socks from your tops. You can see what’s in each one at a glance thanks to their mesh lid, and they even have a compression zip, so you can fit even more in your suitcase. They come in a choice of five colours including blush, mint and taupe.

Stirling umbrella (£35)

Did you know we make an umbrella? We’re British, so of course we do. And we know all too well that wherever you’re travelling, especially on home turf, you just never know when you’ll need it. Our umbrella is part of our Stirling collection of business class luggage and accessories so it’s a smart black, hand-finished design. It’s robust, windproof, and has a rubber coated handle that’s soft to the touch and easy to use, with an automatic push button. It comes in a stylish sleeve with a velcro strap for when you need to neatly tidy it away.

Pair of shoe bags (£20 full price) 

Chelsea Shoe Bag - Grey - Interior

OK we admit it, these don’t sound like the sexiest present in the world, but when it comes to packing, a pair of shoe bags is one of the most useful travel accessories you’ll find. Still using plastic bags to pack your shoes in? Come on now. You just place your shoes on top of your clothes without packing them in anything? Really? But think of where they’ve been! Shoe bags are a serious travel essential. Trust us, these will become a much-loved and I-actually-use-them-all-the-time kind of stocking filler.

All prices are quoted as full price, but are subject to change during the Black Friday sales period.
