Travel, while being a great passion and hobby to have is also a pretty frustrating one at the same time because it isn't exactly something you can fit in after work a couple of nights a week is it?
Instead, travel junkies compensate for this by endlessly researching, planning and dreaming about potential holidays, however realistic or absolutely wildest dreams material they may be.
While planning trips can satiate the wanderlust bug to a certain extent, itching to get out travelling while waiting for your various trips to roll round can get even the most patient travel-lover pretty on edge and yearning stronger than ever for sunnier climes.
To ease the impatient, itchy feet side effect of wanderlust, we think these gift ideas should go down a treat, whether they're for yourself or a fellow travel junkie.
Travel scratch mats are growing in popularity as gifts for the travel obsessed. A great way of documenting all the various places you've visited worldwide, the idea is that your map will arrive black and you’ll scratch off each place you've been to illuminating colour underneath. It’s a fun, visual way of tracking your footsteps across the world. Think of it as a visual checklist.
Okay, admittedly this isn’t the most exciting gift you could give someone but it just might become so whenever they’re stuck on a stuffy train from Munich to Venice to meet friends and notice their phone battery is about to kick it! A portable phone charger makes for a super handy present especially whenever smart phone battery life is so short.
Get your trip off to an excellent start by creating your own Old Fashioned in the air! Coming with everything you need to make two cocktails (bar the alcohol itself) you can bring a touch of class to your flight. It will feel more 1920's jazz bar than Easy Jet. Sort of.
For the grey days when the rain just doesn't seem to stop and all you want to do is book yourself on a one way ticket to Spain, your trusty day and night globe mug, filled with tea of course, will help. This heat sensitive mug lights up a map of the globe when there's a hot beverage in it, and shows the globe at night when your tea has gone lukewarm. It means you can keep your eyes on travelling the world even on the most mundane days.
