7 Stylish Gift Ideas For The Travel Lover On Your Christmas List | Liv

The festive season is finally here! In feverish anticipation, I’ve been sprucing up my Christmas lists with gift ideas that make travel easier, greener, and infinitely more stylish. Here’s some inspiration to get you in the holiday spirit.

FOR THE ASPIRING ROCK STAR

If a plain old suitcase just isn’t going to cut it, check out Ookonn. Inspired by rock music and guitar silhouettes, the homegrown Hong Kong brand has designed quirky, unconventionally shaped bags that you can personalise with a monogram or meaningful song lyrics.

FOR THE PERPETUAL SUNSEEKER

Based in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong brand SORA recently launched a new line of eco friendly beach towels that are made from recycled post-consumer plastic. They’re green and gorgeous, featuring soothing designs by female artists around the globe. Best part: These beauties are light, easy to pack, and double as yoga mats so you can practice your asanas anywhere.

FOR THE BEAUTY BUFF

At LUSH, find all kinds of solid, package-free products that keep you feeling fly on and off the road. After a long flight, hydrate skin with the ultra-slim Goddess Wash Card and tame tresses with the lemon-scented Flyway Hair Shampoo Bar. Meanwhile, solid foundation Slap Stick provides buildable coverage and much-needed moisture.

FOR THE GUY WHO HAS EVERYTHING

In collaboration with Chris Patt, TUMI recently launched a nine-piece Recycled Capsule collection made from nylon and recycled PET. Particularly handy is the 2-in-1 Backpack Duffel, which includes a USB port as well as waterproof-lined pockets for shoes or wet clothes – perfect for a weekend getaway or just a trip to the gym.

FOR THE FASHION MAVEN

Founded by two Italian designers who are passionate about travel, Hong Kong-based fashion brand The Tangerine Road aims to capture destinations in its contemporary designs by collaborating with local artisans and adapting heritage textiles. For instance, the Singapore silk dress pays tribute to the city’s botanical gardens with its vibrant print, while the Kyoto silk blouse features a green jade button and elegant puff sleeves.

FOR THE ECO WARRIOR

Help frequent travellers eschew plastic and stay hydrated with a Que travel bottle. Lightweight and 100 percent plastic-free, the smart spiral design collapses when empty for easy packing. They also come in a rainbow of colours to suit every style. Available at MoMA Design Store, Shop 135, 1/F, K11 MUSEA, Victoria Dockside.

FOR THE HOMEBODY

Hygge enthusiasts can travel without leaving the couch with Cochine’s limited-edition Orange Amere & Star Anise Christmas candle. The Ho Chi Minh City-based fragrance specialist has bottled up the warm scents of Vietnamese markets layered with subtle festive notes – think bitter orange, cinnamon, vanilla, and smoky guaiac wood. Plus, the chic orange and silver design by British fashion illustrator Susannah Garrod makes this gift feel extra luxurious.
