3. Hikenture 4-In-1 Camping Utensil

For camping enthusiasts, or people who are very fussy about using other people’s cutlery, this is the Swiss Army Knife of eating utensils with a knife, fork and spoon attached along with a bottle opener in a small, easy to carry case.

4. Pacsafe Slingsafe LX300 Anti-Theft Backpack

Your loved ones can thwart pick pockets everywhere with this anti-theft backpack.  Not only is this stylish bag difficult for thieves to open, it has a hidden stainless steel wire mesh embedded into the fabric to protect against slash-and-run theft as well as RFIDsafe blocking material built into a pocket which helps protect IDs and credit cards from hacker scanning.

5. Mooni Premium Bluetooth Selfie Remote Shutter

For selfie addicts, this remote is the perfect gift to allow them to take pictures of themselves and their friends wherever they like without being restricted by the length of their arm.  There’s no need for a cumbersome and slightly silly looking selfie stick with this discrete device which connects to your phone via Bluetooth from up to 30 feet away.

6. Hook & Albert Leather Garment Weekender Bag

This is the ultimate gift for the very discerning traveller as it is the ultimate in luxury overnight bag.  Folding up into a duffle bag, this clever creation is actually a garment bag which allows travellers to keep their expensive clothes flat and crease free but then rolls up into a handy carry size bag which complies with airline regulations on hand luggage.
