Are you one of those frustratingly organised people who start buying their Christmas gifts just after the August Bank Holiday?  If you are, then read no further.

But, if like me, you’ve only just started to figure out what and for whom you need to be buying this year, a top tip is to select a gifting ‘theme’. This may sound odd, but thinking through a theme always helps me to focus on buying for the collective family.

While my children almost certainly won’t appreciate a blow-up pillow or passport cover, this year, my friends and relations will be receiving presents that are useful to travel with. Lucky them. After all, we’re all travelling more these days and the pace of life has never been quicker.

So, what do you gift the stylish gentleman traveller? We’ve picked our top eight finds to make his journeys a little more enjoyable.
