First-Class Gift Ideas for Travellers
The gear that every traveller should be asking for this season
If your goal is to see the world next year, tis the season to fill your want list with gifts that will get you on the road or help you out when you touch down. Travel accessories have come a long way (get it?) since the steamer trunk. Today’s savvy traveller needs sleek and sophisticated, smart and adaptable go-anywhere gear. From the clothes on your back to the bag in your hand to the best travel hack apps, build a seasonal wish list to make you jet-set ready.
Remind gift-givers that shopping via airmilesshops.ca lets them get AIR MILES® Reward Miles as they fulfil your travel wishes. Win-win.
Noise-cancelling headphones are the modern globetrotter’s non-negotiable. A superior pair should pull double duty: pump out quality sounds and defend against the noises that bombard a weary traveller. Add sleek to that list and you’ve got a triple-threat from Bose; the QuietComfort® 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones are lightweight and fold down to an easy-to-store size.
Smart travellers invest in the multi-purpose and anything with Swiss Army-like flexibility is a welcome travel companion. Roots bags and accessories are built to be as smart as they are beautiful. And never more so than in their new Beauty Wallet Bag. A small tri-fold bag-wallet hybrid smart enough to carry just what you need for museum-hopping by day and delicate enough to be a clutch for that last-minute party invite.
