With Christmas just around the corner, Lightweight Traveller has lots of inspiring gift-giving ideas to choose from. Lightweight Traveller is a unique concept store for the discerning traveller, offering solutions to travelling comfortably, safely and in style.

Jenny Cusick, Lightweight Traveller owner says, “our stores have an extensive range of innovative travel accessories and clothing, catering for a cross section of travellers. So whether you have friends or family heading off on travels, or even for the urban adventurer staying closer to home, we can help make your gift shopping as easy as possible.”

Jenny has selected her top 10 inspiring ideas to suit gift-giving budgets from around $30 to $300, as follows:

1. The award-winning, civilized squeezable travel tube – GoToobs, are a great gift idea. Made from soft yet rugged silicone, they are easy to squeeze out all of the contents. A large opening makes it easy to fill and clean, and an ID-window on the collar helps with remembering what’s inside. Airplane carry-on approved, food-safe (FDA) and 100% BPA and PC-free. The medium sized GoToob 3 pack from Lightweight Traveller is $32.95.

2.  The Osprey Contrail Courier Bag is a stylish shoulder bag for carrying the office or gear for a weekend in a carry on size. Carry it across the shoulder, or attach it neatly above your roller luggage. Incorporating the Osprey Handle-It™ attachment system, the Contrail bag connects to Osprey’s HighRoad™ Chassis handle (or any similar size double tube handle). The unique design keeps the bag-load well balanced and directly over the wheels for easy handling. The Contrail Courier Bag comes with a separate laptop compartment and is pricedat $149.95 from Lightweight Traveller.

3.  Your friends will think you are very clever with this gift. Lightweight, breathable and fast drying underwear for men and women from Exofficio  The tag “17 countries, 6 weeks and one pair of underwear (OK – maybe two)” says it all. Just toss them in the laundry or wash them in a sink. Within hours you will have a fresh, dry pair of underwear. Soon they will replace every other pair in your underwear drawer. Exofficio underwear from Lightweight Traveller is priced from $27.95

4.  Another really smart travel clothing solution from Exofficio. Lightweight, breathable, fast-drying shirtswith built in sun protection and zipped security pockets. Wash tonight/wear tomorrow.
