10 Gifts To Keep Globetrotters Entertained Between Trips
We all know one. The Frequent Flier. The Sun Seeker. The Jetsetter. In short, that friend or family member who always appears to be holiday, and whose Instagram feed makes us want to cry!
And not only do their relentless holiday snaps make us green with envy, but these budding globetrotters are also super tricky to buy gifts for! Mainly because, more often than not, they will claim that their most cherished possessions will fit in their travel rucksack. That’s that new funky art print you were eyeing up out of the question then! Or is it…?
Here at Red Candy, we think travel-themed homeware would actually make a rather awesome gift for travel lovers (and not just because we’re a homewares company!) Chances are that these sun seekers aren’t actually *always* on holiday, so why not buy them some funky travel-themed homeware so they can show off their passion for travel in their home? A cork globe or map to help them plot their next travel route is bound to take pride of place in their pad!
