Traveller Presents fit for a Queen

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth!!

In Australia we celebrate the Queen’s birthday on the second Monday in June (well all states except for Western Australia…). This year Queen Elizabeth turned the big 9-0 – well her actually birthday is on the 21st of April but don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story. The Queen has travelled pretty much all over the world but in her old age she has chosen to stay in the merry old UK. In honour of the Queen Elizabeth’s birthday, here is a list of 10 awesome gifts to give a traveller.

1 – Scratchable world map

2- A mammoth book of sudokus

Cost – $15AUD

I love travelling with a book of sudokus as it is easy to entertain myself when I am having difficulty with technology (which is actually quite often….).

3- Luggage scale

Cost – $20AD

I would be lost without this little gadget. There have been many times when I wasn’t sure if I was over my weight limit but this little bad boy has helped me shuffle things around without being that awkward person in the airport with the open suitcase moving things around.

4- Cute luggage tags

Cost – $17AUD

No luggage is complete for a traveller without having a cute tag on their bag. Personalise it anyway you want and make it easy for you or your special traveller to spot at the airport!

5- Travel stubs diary
