They can keep themselves entertained for hours on those long uncomfortable coach journeys and colour in their route as they cross continents. Or just chill out by the pool and colour in all the sights they’ve seen that day whilst admiring the view.
If you know someone who’s always traveling for work and often spends hours stuck in airport lounges or on long haul flights, then why not get them something they can do to relax and keep their zen amongst a chaos of flight delays, queues and screaming children, whilst at the same time creating a colourful record of everywhere they’ve been in the world. The Colorlogue would make an excellent stocking filler for travel obsessed friends, perpetual globe trotters and holiday junkies.
This pocket sized travel gift comes in a neat little folder making it easy to chuck in your backpack and even comes with it’s own colouring pencils so you’re ready for colouring fun right away! Just watch out for turbulence or bumps in the road; you don’t want to stray outside of the lines!
If you’re someone who gets up at the crack of dawn whilst everyone else is still sleeping and creeps around the bedroom tying to get ready in the dark without waking your partner up, only to end up crashing and banging your way around, knocking things over, hurting yourself and generally causing havoc only to end up realising when you’re sat at your desk an hour later that your shirt is on inside out and there’s a stain on your trousers, then we are about to change your life.
Introducing Hang Up; this copper ambient light is in the shape of a clothes hanger so you can hang it in your wardrobe and turn it on for some extra illumination in the mornings. Finally you can see the contents of your wardrobe clearly without blasting the overhead light into the face of your unsuspecting other half. You can also hang it on the back of your door or anywhere you like to shine a bit of light on things at an ungodly hour.
We’re always at the forefront of new design here at Luckies and we are proud to say that our new invention Hang Up is an IHA Global Innovation Awards Finalist! We don’t just do it for silverware though, our aim in life is to make and your (and our) lives easier with our cutting edge gadgets. We were sick of stubbing our toes in the dark and turning up to work looking like we we’re colour blind, so we decided to do something about it and Hang Up is the result!
The Hang Up ambient light is battery powered and made from a copper effect frosted plastic. It lasts up to 20 hours so you don’t need to worry about it running out any time soon. These handy night lights would make excellent Christmas presents for anyone who’s up early to start their morning commute. They would also make thoughtful stocking fillers for anyone who travels for work; they can carry their suit hanging up on this stylish hanger which doubles a travel night light for them.
With Christmas on the horizon you may be facing a long flight to go and see family for the festive period, or perhaps you’re one of the lucky few who have escaped the clutches of family and are off on holiday for Xmas to an exotic island somewhere. Either way you’re probably not looking forward to the flight itself; long queues, recycled air, screaming children (yours and other people’s). Well, we can’t do anything about that I’m afraid but we can make the flight itself a lot more comfortable with our long flight essentials. These tech gadgets would also make great travel gifts for any jet setters in your life who are always travelling for work.
A long haul flight is the perfect time to catch up on that latest TV series everyone’s been raving about. With the Magni-Viewer you can turn your smartphone into your own portable TV as it doubles your screen size. Meaning you can binge watch a TV series, use it to make a start on that holiday reading, or keep the kids quiet with some pre loaded episodes of Paw Patrol! If you’re looking for gifts for travellers then this is a good bet.
2. The Envelope
If you like to take your laptop with you on holiday, you’ll know how stressful it is having to keep taking it in and out of your bag at security, and then in and out of the overhead lockers on board the flight. There’s always the worry you might drop it, or someone might throw their bag on top of yours and cause damage to your most treasured possession. No longer a worry with our retro inspired tech sleeve. The Envelope is designed to look like an old fashioned Manilla envelope and is made from tear proof material and lined with a quality grey felt for extra protection to keep your laptop safe.
4. Pocket Tin Speaker
We’re not suggesting you blast your holiday tunes out for the whole plane to hear but perhaps if you happen to be sat near an unhappy baby or toddler, you could play some quiet music to soothe them and keep yourself and other passengers entertained? If you all get in the spirit, you could even have a Xmas singalong! This pocket sized speaker is a great thing to take on holiday with you though as it means you’ve got music wherever you land.
