If you’re planning on travelling around Christmas time, you might want to bring some festive cheer with you on your journey. Travel-friendly gifts are ideal for explorer families. Keep in-car squabbles to the minimum by filling your loved ones’ stockings with some of these presents this year.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Just because you’ve brought your kids along with you on your winter holiday, it doesn’t mean that you have to put up with everyone else’s. We’ve all been on that flight with the screaming baby or the fighting couple. Buy your family noise cancelling headphones this year, so they can enjoy their favourite music or the latest film in peace.
A parent with a bookworm for a child will know the frustration that comes with packing heavy suitcases full of novels into the car. Save money on extra luggage and make your life easier by buying your bibliophile a Kindle for Christmas. If you want to purchase them something a little more all-encompassing, some tablets include a Kindle function, so shop around.
When you’re enjoying fun days out with the family, you’ll want to preserve the memories. Turn everyone into a budding photographer by purchasing digital cameras this Christmas. Matched with a scrapbook, your kids can store their favourite moments of the trip and show their friends.
The ultimate cool present, binoculars allow your kids to get close up views of the local wildlife and scenery. Enhance your exploration of new shores with magnified vision.
Perhaps more for the girls than the boys, a steampunk, compass necklace looks not only awesome and vintage but is also extremely practical for long walks! A true explorer never leaves the house without one. A compass will look fantastic with every holiday outfit you wear.
Is your teenager useless without their morning coffee? Give them a storm kettle for a no-fuss caffeine fix on-the-go. Leave behind the complex camping stove. All you’ll need for the storm kettle is a sheet of newspaper, matches, and some twigs. The storm kettle boils water in minutes!
If you’re on a camping holiday this winter (you must be crazy), get everyone a Selk’bag for Christmas. Warm and comfortable, this is a sleeping bag with a difference. A Selk’bag is ideal for people who find camping uncomfortable. Shaped to your body, you can walk around and do things easily instead of being cocooned within a traditional sleeping bag.
Taking a toddler on holiday can be a nightmare luggage-wise. It’s amazing how much equipment and provisions a little one needs! Leave the high chair at home with the totseat. This cloth harness attaches safely and easily to adult chairs, keeping your baby secure at meal time.
Not the most glamorous stocking-filler, but largely practical, the sheewee makes squatting down in the bushes a thing of the past. Now ladies too can have the convenience of answering the call of nature easily.
