Our seven travel must-haves for the holiday season!
Going on holiday this summer? We all love a good summer holiday, the excitement of visiting a new place, the pure bliss of not having to go to work but instead spending your days chilling at the pool, eating good food and drinking lots of wine! While that all sounds amazing, the bit before you go on holiday with the last minute packing and the long travelling time can be both exhausting and boring. So minimise the stress with our seven must-have travel accessories and essentials that every traveler should have to make their summer holidays easier and stress-free!
1. Bosign 2-in-1 Travel Tablet Pillow, £24.95
This might just be our favourite item on the list, it’s such a clever design and truly is a travel must-have! Designed by a brother and sister team based in Sweden, the travel combo pillow is ideal for anyone who travels with a tablet. It gives the perfect support to use your tablet in two different viewing positions, horizontal and vertical, great for watching movies on the plane, train or your hotel room and for playing games in the back seat of the car. Plus when you fancy a little nap, the pillow doubles as an anatomically correct support for your neck, making it easy for you to fall asleep on long journeys without getting a stiff neck! When on the move, simply clip the pillow around your suitcase handle or on a hook on your back-pack and away you go. This cleverly designed travel and tablet combo pillow is great for adults and kids alike, and will certainly make long journeys more bearable!
2. Equa Glass Water Bottle, from £21.95
