Five of the Best Travel Gift Ideas for Him this Valentine’s Day

After dropping numerous hints to our other halves about what we’d really like for Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d better play fair and put our mind to some travel gift ideas for him this February 14th...


Bose Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

If you really want to make your other half’s day this Valentine’s, then splash out on these up-to-the-minute Bose headphones. They’re several cuts above their competitors, with 35 hours of battery life and remote iPod and iPhone control. Plus, they’ve got microphones that work both inside and outside the headphone to reduce all external noise on trains, planes and buses – meaning he can listen to music and films with an unbeatably clear sound. Trust us, he’ll love you forever.

Polaroid Z340

If your boyfriend is still mourning the loss of the original Polaroid camera, then here’s something that should certainly cheer him up. Polaroid’s new instant digital camera, the Z340, combines innovative design with just a hint of nostalgia. It’s more lightweight than the original and certainly packs a huge amount of technology into its compact frame, with 14.0 megapixels, a 2.7” colour LCD screen, the ability to view and crop images on the camera, a built-in zero ink printing technology printer and smudge-proof, water-resistant, tear-resistant photos. Best of all, though, it combines all that innovation with loads of style – but then with Lady Gaga as Creative Director we wouldn’t expect anything less.

AQ Airplay

Travel and music go hand in hand (as anyone's who's arrived at their destination and realised the hotel speakers aren't quite up to speed knows...) Which is where Apple’s latest wireless technology comes in… The AQ Airplay means you don’t have to fiddle about with adapter plugs and streams crystal-clear music from your iPod or mobile. With over 10 hours of battery life, they're perfect if you’re on your travels, hanging out at the beach, or just at home listening to internet radio or iPlayer. Tinny sound is a thing of the past. Apple we salute you.

Tusting Wash Bag

Those little stylish details make all the difference. It’s a fact we’re fully aware of, obviously. But is he? Come to the rescue with this chic leather wash bag from Tusting. Made in a lightweight, dark navy blue calfskin with a tan bridle leather trim and zipped inner pocket, it really is the ultimate product for a smart getaway, and one that will see him through both an overnight stay or weeks away. Plus, if he pairs it with a matching Harrold Chellington holdall, he’ll certainly look the part wherever he goes.

Price: £125; stockist:

White Mountaineering Trainers

Ok, deep breath: this present means less wardrobe space for us. But then gone are the days when our boyfriends only own two pairs of footwear. These days it seems like a man can never have enough pairs of trainers. Anyhow, we love these chic Shipton high-tops from White Mountaineering for their cool take on the classic basketball trainer. Crafted from soft black leather and suede with a running stitch pattern, these go-with-everything trainers keep branding to a minimum and are perfect for getting out and about this spring. We like.
