1. Scratch Off World Map Poster

Ask any traveller what they hate most about travelling, and the answer is most likely to be the long waiting times at the airport. Gift them this puzzle book to kill boredom while waiting to board their flight.

6. Travel Slippers

A lot of us experience swollen feet at high altitudes. These comfy slippers are great to slip into on long flights. Since they are super light-weight, they won’t take up too much space in the hand luggage.

7. Face Spray

Since flying can dehydrate you and take the moisture out of your skin, this extremely useful gift will keep the skin moisturised in planes.
