Travel Gifts for Beach Lovers
Tesalate Beach Towel
I wrote a blog post a few months back talking about planning to wear a bikini for the first time in eight years, and here is the evidence! My Tesalate towel was so comfy to lie on, and didn’t leave any of that funny bumpy towel-print you get on your skin, when you lie on a normal towel.
Tesalate have developed their own high-tech fabric called AbsorbLite™ microfiber. It’s so absorbent that it can hold up to a litre of water!
Sunglasses with a Folding Case
The vintage-style sunglasses I’m wearing in the photos above are from Golden Hour Vision and come in a fab origami folding case. I found them to be perfect for travel as the case is sturdy enough to pop in your bag, so the sunglasses don’t get crushed, but folds flat when you’re wearing them. You can read more about these luxurious sunglasses on my full review here.
I’ve long been a huge fan of Salt-Water Sandals, for many reasons. They have never given me blisters. Ever. You soak them in water when you buy them, and wear them until they are dry and they mould to your feet. I have two pairs, the matte gold, and shiny pastel pink and can’t choose my favourites. Salt-water Sandals are the ideal travel shoes, as you only need one pair if packing space is tight, as they can be worn in sun and the rain, or even in the sea! You can also hand wash them in a gentle detergent if needed.

Perfect Bags for Travel
Fjallraven Kanken Backpack
I treated myself to this pretty, yet practical backpack before my trip to Nashville. It’s the ideal size for hand luggage and can fit so much in it. I bought the 15″ version, which you can buy in lots of different colours through this affiliate link. It comes in several different sizes, but I think this is the best for hand luggage, and carrying a laptop.

Elsa’s Organic Skin Foods Deodorant
I’ve written before about my love for Elsa’s Organic Skin Foods’ natural deodorants, and now they come in travel-friendly tins too, which are easier to recycle. These two cute little tins have 100% natural, yet effective deodorant pastes smell great and work well, what’s not to love? You can buy these organic natural deodorants here. (Products gifted.)

Gifts to Make Travel Easier
Trtl Travel Neck Wrap
This may not be the most attractive thing I’ve ever worn, but the Trtl Travel Neck Pillow does make aeroplane travel ever so slightly more bearable! It is made of fleece with a lightweight frame that supports your head. It folds up for travel so it fits in your hand luggage easily. You can buy a Trtl Neck Pillow in several colours through my affiliate link here.
Pack Mate Roll Up Vacuum Travel Storage Bags
I used these vacuum storage bags on recent trips and they are a revelation. I’ve used the larger ones that use a vacuum cleaner nozzle to suck the air out for years. These ones simply roll up so you don’t need a hoover. The air is removed quickly and easily by rolling them up with the clothes inside. You can buy roll up travel vacuum bags in several sizes through my affiliate link here.
See how much you can fit in, and how small they go? Amazing!
