For the traveller who prefers a more flexible approach, a high-quality travel backpack is a must-have. This carry-on backpack is great for air travel because it meets airline requirements for package size and nicely fits an overhead luggage compartment or under the airplane seat. It opens freely up to 180 degrees, with multiple compartments for laptops, clothes, books, and a water bottle. My favourite feature is the high-density waterproof fabric and one front wet pocket for toiletries and wet items.

Packing Cubes help travellers maximize luggage space and keep clothing organized. These handy organizers not only save room in your suitcase but also make it easy to find what you need when you arrive at your destination. With packing cubes, you don’t need to dig through the entire suitcase just to pull out a pair of socks that ends up messing up everything that you spent hours organizing! You even get to store 3 times more laundry when you travel with the extra-large laundry bag that comes with these packing cubes for travel. It is definitely a wonderful Christmas gift any traveller would appreciate.
