2. Media Share – £19.97

I wish I could say that my kids don’t need electronic devices on holidays, but unfortunately they do! I invested in a Media share, years ago and it is one of my favourite travel gadgets. It’s a small portable device that creates it’s own wifi network so kids can watch movies on their tablets or phones anywhere, even on a plane. BTW it is good for adults too!

3. Havaianas Luna sandals – £14.99

I never travel without these – they are so versatile! The support around your heel allows you to wear them at any time, even for long walks. They don’t flop, they never fall off and they are even dressy enough to wear at night time – well depending on where you are going 😉. I have them in two colours and I bring them everywhere!

noise cancelling ear buds are a great travel gift idea

Noice cancelling ear phones or ear buds are a Godsend when travelling. Jabra are highly recommended for their advanced noice cancellation capabilities and long lasting rechargeable batteries, which last up to 31 hours with the case. They are less expensive than some of the more well known brands, and are a great travel gift.

You know the way there are never plugs near a mirror in a hotel room? Not a problem anymore, – simply plug the extension cable in and bring it into the bathroom with you.

12. Apple Airtag: from €35

luggage tips - how to avoid lost luggage when travelling with Apple AirTags

The Apple AirTag looks like a large coin and can be placed in your suitcase or backpack when you travel. It shows you where you luggage is at all times via the Find my Network app.
 

 

 
Priced at just €35 for one coin, and €119 for a pack of four, these are a good investment if you are concerned about lost luggage. Samsung have a similar device called a Smart Tag, and Tile is another alternative that works with any mobile device, but does not have the same precision finding as the AirTag.
