LONDON, Nov 16, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) —
As holiday shopping kicks off along with the upcoming Black Friday
and Cyber Monday sales,, the UK’s leading website
for travel deals comparison, has scoured the travel-sphere for the
world’s Top 10 Perfect Travel Gifts this Christmas.

With everything from the latest gadgets to entertainment luggage for
the kids, there’s sure to be a stocking stuffer or a box to put under
the tree for all.

“Eliminate the stress of holiday shopping by hitting the high street
or even the cyber world for a spot of shopping, list in hand,” says
Nadine Hallak, Travel Expert for

“Travel related gifts are fun to open as they carry the joy of the
moment as well as the promise of future adventure. Our choices are
also useful, practical, long lasting and inspiring. Most importantly,
most of them won’t break the bank!” adds Hallak.

Here we explore five of the world’s ten very best travel gifts to
give this holiday season along with who they would suit.

For the junior traveller — Trunki

This is the one that the cash-rich investors in Dragon’s Den let get
away. Flying during the peak Christmas travel season pretty much
guarantees long lines and frazzled families at the airport. A relief
for parents is the Trunki, a baggage-scooter hybrid that has changed
the way kids navigate airports. The four-wheeled suitcase offers tots
a chance to pack their favourite Peppa Pig pyjamas and then ride
around the airport and their destination. New this year is
SnooziHedz, a three-in-one blanket, pillow and travel buddy —
perfect for the colder cabin environment.

For the jet setter — Tumi Scale

Passengers are all too familiar with rising baggage fees as airlines
continue to struggle to offset rising fuel costs. And even worse than
paying to check luggage are additional fees for overweight bags.
Tumi’s new Scale is a handy solution, and a sophisticated gadget for
your nearest and dearest jet setter this festive season. The handheld
device tells travellers in one grab — before heading to the airport
— exactly what a bag weighs. Disclaimer: It utterly spoils the fun
of repacking at the check-in counter or investing in a second
suitcase at Duty-Free.

For the aspiring bilingual — My French/Spanish Coach

UBI, makers of the popular Just Dance games for Wii devices, has
created a game for Nintendo DS that combines fun with language
learning for players of all ages. My French Coach — also available
in Spanish — claims that dedicated linguists who practice just 20
minutes each day can become fluent in whatever language they’re
learning, simply by playing the mini-games and tracking their
progress. Want to get beyond the “dos cervezas, por favor” standard
of Spanish? Now’s your chance.

For the photographer — Canon point-and-shoot

DSLR cameras are gaining popularity among travellers, but they come
with a hefty price tag. Luckily, Canon is making user-friendly
point-and-shoots that capture exquisite photographs at a fraction of
the cost. The new PowerShot ELPH features a 28mm wide-angle lens, 8x
optical zoom and an optical image stabiliser — all within a super
slim frame. The hardest part: choosing from the ultra-hip color
options like electric blue and hot pink.

For the environmentalist — Sustainable Cork Sleeve

As personal electronics become more and more sophisticated, so should
their protective covers. Taking a laptop or tablet on holiday is
risky business, especially for those whose price tags are high. Enter
Ryan Frank, an eco-friendly furniture designer from South Africa, to
the rescue. The sustainably minded craftsman has created Sustainable
Cork Sleeves to protect cameras, iPods and e-readers — you name it
— in naturally harvested, biodegradable cork leather. The result:
wonderful carriers for your favourite nomad’s most expensive travel
