The Hikelite 18 Rucksack from Osprey is ideal for day trips and will hold everything you need for your day out. The rucksack is great for weekend hikes as it is for daily commute to work.

Overall, it is a well-made and versatile rucksack.

SunGod Sunglasses


Eye protection while travelling is serious business and most travel lovers would appreciate receiving a good pair of sunglasses. Whether one is travelling to tropical destinations or a glacial locale, good eye gear will offer excellent eye protection in all weather conditions.

SunGod Sunglasses

SunGod Sunglasses offer high performance and high quality sunglasses that can be customised online. And all this at a price that is difficult to argue with. Bhavin has been using these sunglasses (a customised Sierra with matte black Tortoise frame and Polarised 4KO® blue lenses) for a couple of weeks now and finds the pair great for travel. Let me share the reasons why...

The main aspect of any sunglass is the lenses' quality. And SunGod's Polarised 4KO® lenses have been engineered from a 2mm Polycarbonate core and feature 5 refined lens tints offering enhanced contrast and optimised clarity whatever the landscape. The lenses also have a triple-layer scratch resistance ensuring that they remain in good condition. Another key feature of these lenses is that they are lightweight and combined with the lightweight frames, it makes them comfortable to wear all day long. No nose slide and no marks on the nose! The frames also built from Adventurepoof material which allows them to be flexed without breaking. Great idea! SunGod are so sure of their products performance and durability that they offer Lifetime Guarantee on their frames.

The sunglasses also score well on the style front. Overall, these are good-quality, scratch-resistant, polarised lenses in an adventure-proof frame and in a classic style. The Lifetime Guarantee on the frames is an added bonus. And finally the price, £65, which in our opinion is a very good price. These SunGod sunglasses would make an excellent and useful gift for any travel lover.

Customise and grab a pair from SunGod's website.

Hydroflask

Hydroflask

Solidly made, this flask keeps water cold all day long (and hot drinks hot for a good 8-10 hours). If you know of someone who is trying to reduce their usage of 'use and throw' plastic bottles, this flask would make a great gift. It is made with 18/8 Pro grade Stainless Steel and is BPA and Pthalate free. The flask outer has a sweat-free powder coat finish which makes it comfortable to hold and offers good grip. I have been using this flask for a long time now and love it. The only minus point is that because of its size, it doesn't fit in the side pockets of all backpacks. Having said that the flask is a good quality, looks lovely, is easy to clean and is perfect for those who are always on the go.

Price: RRP £26.95, Available here.


Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 GORE-TEX Walking Boots

Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 GORE-TEX Walking Boots

Know someone who enjoys walking? Then the Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 GORE-TEX walking boots would make a great gift for them. Stable, comfortable and fully waterproof, the X Ultra Mid 3 GTX is one of Salomon's best sellers and is a good choice for fast-paced walking. The boots boast of 'Descent Control' technology for enhanced performance on technical terrain and tough descents. Bhavin has been using these boots for over a year and loves the boot's lightweight construction. Other features that are commendable are its waterproofing, support & stability and good traction on all kinds of surfaces. Highly recommended. Just check the sizing prior to ordering as those with wide feet might feed the sizing narrow.

Price: RRP £145, Available to but from Amazon UK.


Antler Prism 4-Wheel Spinner Cabin Suitcase

Antler Prism 4-Wheel Spinner Cabin Suitcase

Another great gift for the globe trotter would be the Antler Prism cabin suitcase. Stylish, durable (we have had ours for a few years now and it is as good as new even after umpteen trips) and affordable, the Antler Prism suitcase would make for a very useful gift for anyone who always seem to going on trips. It fits perfectly in the overhead compartment in airplanes, is the ideal size for short trips away, is spacious & convenient and easy to move around as well. Overall, a great little case!

Price: RRP £185 but is currently available on a discounted rate on Amazon UK.
