Every traveler wishes for an extra pair of hands once in a while. We've all been there - juggling tickets, passport, several currencies, more than one piece of luggage, a book and a magazine to read on the flight,a laptop, a camera, a mobile phone and often nowadays lunch as well. If you've ever found yourself shedding vital bits of travel kit as you raced for a plane or train, you'll appreciate travel gadgets that are like helping hands for harassed travelers.
Remember when you could toss any old thing into your carry on bag at the last minute? Do I want the round hair brush or the flat one - oh what the hey, take both. Today, you need to take travel space savers seriously because, between new weight and size restrictions for carry-ons, airline charges for checked bags and the security rules - which seem to change every few months - packing for a trip has become an advanced science. Small, light, dual-purpose travel accessories are trave; essentials and great gifts.
Travel comfort accessories to carry aboard a long flight can make a big difference to the first few days of a UK vacation. At London's airports, you can always tell the recent arrivals from North America, Australia, India and the Far East. They look like all they want is a good day's sleep. What a shame to waste a day that could be exciting and full of new experiences sleeping off an overnight flight. These five travel comfort accessories make a good night's sleep a lot easier to achieve in-flight so a UK holiday or vacation gets off to a really good start. What a thoughtful gift idea.
Coffee may be international but in Britain, even coffee drinkers like nothing better than a nice cup of tea, with or without milk, of an afternoon. And they'll have none of those fancy, spiced or gourmet teas if you please. Just good, solid black teas, brewed to perfection and served in the right sort of cup. These teas, teapots and kettles will deliver the real British cuppa for the tea lovers, British expats or anglophiles on your holiday list.
