Whether travelling for work or pleasure this selection of thoughtful gifts will put a smile on their face on Christmas morning, and will make every future journey that little more luxurious. From smart luggage, to elegant accessories, and skin-plumping products, these gifts make the ultimate travel companions.

Bamford B Silent Night-Time Pillow Mist

I swear by a soothing pillow mist to lull myself into a restful slumber. Combat jet-lag with Bamford's sensorial concoction: formulated from a grounding blend of lavender, earthy frankincense, and fresh marjoram to promote a restful sleep. At 50ml, it’s perfect for stowing in hand luggage, taking a little bit of home with you.  £16, bamford.com

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Give the gift of good skin with this cult-worthy hydrating mask. Filled to the brim with vitamin C for radiance, niacinamide to minimise pores and blur uneven skin tone, and ceramides for plumpness, pop this on post-landing for the illusion of nine hours of sleep. £49, cultbeauty.co.uk

Steamery Cirrus 3 Iron Steamer

Who knew a steamer could be so chic? Compact and lightweight, this efficacious gadget makes light work of creases on suits, silk dresses and beyond, whilst the steam removes dirt and odours to maximise wear between washes. £150, steamery.co.uk

GHD Unplugged Cordless Styler

There’s no excuse for fly away, frizzy hair with GHD’s unplugged hair straighteners to promote a glossy shiny mane wherever you are in the world. Even better, it’s cordless for added ease. £299, GHD.com 

Briggs & Riley Essential Carry On Spinner

The Essential Carry-On is the perfect gift for frequent flyers. The CX expansion technology makes this the Mary Poppins of travel bags, whilst the tri-fold garment holder and garment panels minimises in-journey creasing. There are also myriad external and internal pockets to organise your precious cargo on-the-go. £599, briggs-riley.co.uk

Slip Frequent Flyer Travel Set

A Slip eye mask is every beauty obsessive's bedtime non-negotiable, crafted from 100% organic silk, it protects against fine lines, reduces sleep-induced creases, prevents hair static, and doesn’t absorb as much of that expensive eye cream you’ve just lovingly applied. With a matching neck pillow and face mask, this kit will make long-haul flights infinitely more comfortable. £75, slipsilkpillowcase.co.uk

Strathberry Rose Street Jewellery Box

The ideal gift for jet-setting magpies, this Strathberry jewellery box is perfectly-sized to safely stow a selection of their favourite pieces, from watches, to earrings, and a layer of pendants. £195, strathberry.com

London Velvet The Suede Weekend Bag

Elevate every journey with this capacious holdall. Crafted from rich suede in an array of timeless hues, it makes a truly discerning travel companion.

Opt for added monogramming for an extra personalised touch. £1,495, londonvelvet.co.uk

D.S. & Durga Debaser Eau de Parfum

This intoxicating scent is like a tropical vacation in a bottle. It opens with a fresh green leaf and bergamot note, warming to a jammy fig and coconut milk heart, and grounded in creamy tonka bean. Spritz liberally to be transported to sunnier climes. £155, liberty.com

Dr. Sturm Glow Kit

Give the gift of glowing skin. Skincare aficionados will be delighted to receive this multi-step skincare regime, housed in a chic travel bag for their next adventure.

WNU The Palazzo Set

We already love WNU for their iconic Boyfriend shirt, which we quite frankly own in every colour way now. Now the British independent brand has ventured into equally as covetable lightweight trousers too. Crafted from 100% organic hemp, this co-ord can be worn separately, or styled together for the flight, on the beach, or simply relaxing in the hotel.  £230, withnothingunderneath.com

Polaroid Now Generation 2 i-Type Instant Camera

If you are anything like me, I am fanatical about taking snaps of my travels, but aside from the requisite Instagram post, these photos sit untouched in my camera roll. Enter the next gen of Polaroid, with all the retro charm but modernised with double exposure and a self-timer to capture treasured moments in fun, instant prints. £119, polaroid.com

Smythson Playing Cards

Some of the most thoughtful gifts are essentials made luxe such as these playing cards housed in a smart leather case thanks to purveyors of leather goods, Smythson. The perfect accompaniment to sundowner cocktail or dreaded travel delays. £210, smythson.com
