I think everyone will agree with me when I say; I prefer giving gifts that can actually be used in the long run. Ok, so it’s fun to have the odd humourous trinket on Christmas Day but those gifts that can be used time and time again are perfect for both friends and family.
However, some people are famously hard to buy for so digging a little deeper into what they would find useful can be challenging, especially if they love travelling a lot. Of course, when you travel, you can’t really take everything and the kitchen sink but having the essentials is important to feel comfortable and stylish on your holiday.
So if you’re thinking about Christmas gifts this year, check out some of my top picks that are ideal for anyone that loves holidaying at home or abroad.
It might not be the weather right now to get your swimming cossie on, but for lovers of the summer sun, they’ll be thinking about travel for next year. So it’s the perfect time to gift them with a new swimsuit or bikini that they can wear on their next break. This beautiful one piece from Anita Swimwear offers a flattering fit with the bonus of stylish prints and on-trend design. They also have bikini’s in a range of fits including cup sizes A-I.
