Great Christmas gifts for travellers!

As you may know, alongside this travel blog I have the Travel Store, an online store selling luggage and travel accessories which I have been running for exactly two years now. I’m loving it!

At this stage in the business I am only shipping NZ-wide and my luggage is all supplied from around New Zealand via distributors for some of the world’s biggest brands like Antler, Delsey, Lojel, All Blacks, Verage and Voyager.

But what I’ve been loving most is buying clever and practical accessories so that the Travel Store will soon become a one-stop-shop for all your travel needs whether it be a new suitcase, a neck pillow, packing cells or cute yet functional compression socks.

I’ve put together this list of items for you to quickly scroll through and if you like anything, just click on the image or the title and it will take you through to the Travel Store to check it out in more detail.


We’re having a Xmas Sale until December 16!

Take another 10% off everything in store!
Just enter the code XMAS10 at checkout, and also get FREE shipping orders over $40

If you want to get your goodies in time for the 25th, you’ll need to order by the 14th to be safe.
