Christmas Gift Guide 2019: 15 gadget gift ideas for travellers and explorers

Go from rookie roamer to expert explorer with these globetrotting gifts

It’s about the journey not the destination, they say – but it’s hard to be a happy traveller when a dusting of snow has delayed your flight and this year’s Christmas is happening at Heathrow.

Upgrade your getaway with these nomadic items: from backpacks to trackers to self-cleaning bottles, this globetrotting gear offers a one-way ticket to smarter travel – no miles necessary.

Sure, it won’t do anything to hasten your departure, but at least you’ll feel like you’re ready for adventure. Provided Father Christmas gets clearance to land, of course.
