Saturday 23 November 2013

This week's Secret Santa Sunday has been moved forward a day - HUZZAH! We're hoping to provide lots of helpful gift ideas in the run up to Christmas, so keep checking back every weekend if you want to be inspired. This week's feature is from IWOOT, one of the most awesome gift buying stores on the interwebz.

Travelogue Holiday Memories Set IWOOTc/o IWOOT

The Travelogue Holiday Memories Set (£12.99) is the perfect gift for those friends/loved ones who love to travel. I know from experience that travel journals are extremely important for logging memories and random quotes/musings while backpacking/flashpacking. I still love reading my first travel journal from 2007 every few years, I met lots of interesting people and had a few crazy experiences in the USA. Sadly I only filled in 1 month's worth of entries from my 2009 trip to South East Asia and nothing from my latest round the world trip to Australasia and South America. Thankfully I still have all the emails to my friends but it's not quite the same...

I really wish somebody had bought me one of these, it contains tips and advice, scratch off maps and space for diary entries, checklists and more. It's a good size too, sometimes it's tricky writing in those tiny travel journals you can buy in Paperchase.

The multicoloured cloth (or Aguayo) above is from Bolivia. It reminds me of the time a pregnant store owner asked us to look after her shop in La Paz while she left to get some more stock from a nearby stall. She put a stick in the doorway so everyone else knew it was closed and we just waited patiently. Upon her return she said she knew she could trust us because we were British haha.

Do you know anyone who is planning a RTW trip? Have you shopped at IWOOT before?

  7. I love stuff like this - not so much for travel but I have a world map that I really want to frame and pin all the places we've been/want to go :)
