Gifting your loved ones this set of travel minis from REN Skincare takes the panic out of packing, and is ideal for both men and women.

Pack thousands of books!

As much as we love books, they can be cumbersome to carry around and their heaviness does no favours to limiting baggage weights.

E-readers first started appearing on lilos and sunbeds a few years ago now, and they’ve become a staple for travelling bookworms who enjoy a good read just as much as they do experiencing new places.

There are various options on the market, but one of the best has to be Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite. Waterproof and with an impressive 8GB of memory, there’s space for thousands of books to enjoy when relaxing by the pool.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite from £119.99

Capture memories on a camera

Mobile phones have eclipsed the compact camera in recent years, but let your loved ones enjoy a detox from social media, emails and the like with a handy little camera to take snaps with.

The Panasonic Lumix is a light digital camera that’s a great option for travellers, with an impressive zoom and full HD video all included in this slim design.

With built-in Wifi, it also makes sharing and synching images with laptops and tablets easy once the holiday is over.

Make packing easy

No traveller would be complete without a backpack and we love the range from Fjällräven Kånke.

Made from durable and water-resistant fabric, the backpack features a large main compartment and two handy side pockets for a water bottle and any travelling snacks.

Plus, with a range of colours to choose from, there’s something to suit every globe trotter.

Enhance travel comfort

Model wears Travelwrap

It’s important to be comfortable when travelling. How we feel on arrival after hours in an aeroplane (and its air conditioning) can make a huge difference to the start of a trip or holiday.

Ensure your loved ones get their trip off to the best start with a Travelwrap. These luxurious cashmere shawls wrap around the body with ease, and can also be a useful cover up on chilly evenings or if attending religious buildings.

Plus, for a limited time only, Liz Earle Wellbeing readers can enjoy an exclusive 10% discount off a Travelwrap enter the code LIZLOVES21 at checkout.
