Memobottle A5 Water Bottle

Price: $49.95

There’s nothing we hate more than a water bottle getting all up in our leg room on a flight. The A5 Memobottle is flat—about the same size as an A5 notebook, funnily enough— and fits into the seat pocket (or your bag) like an absolute dream. Buy it here.

Travel Gift Guide

The Laundress On The Spot Kit

Price: $47

The Laundress has done us all a solid and brought out a travel pack which should be in every traveller's kit. The Crease Release is a godsend for your threads after being stuffed in your suitcase for hours, and everyone should have a couple of the stain removal towelettes on the person at all times, in our opinion. Get it here.

There’s nothing worse than setting up a shop in a hotel room and realising there’s no speaker and you’re going to have to listen to your tunes through your mobile phone. This speaker is light enough (and small enough) to take anywhere, plus it’s waterproof and it even floats. Get your hands on it here.

Beats Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones

Price: $450

Whether it’s for a long haul flight or just to drown out the sound of the city in a hotel room that’s a little too close to the street, noise cancelling headphones are an absolute must for every well-worn traveller.
