Nine luxury travel items you didn’t know you wanted
Around holiday time you always feel a little bit more frivolous and in the mood for treating yourself, it could be the sunshine, it could be the fact that you are about to go on the trip of a lifetime or it could just be that you deserve it.
Peter Jenkins, travel expert and managing director at Sun-hat Villas and Resorts, specialists in luxury Algarve villas, has put together the team’s dream travel item list that is just about to become yours too.
1.) Lounging around a crystal clear pool in the hot sun can’t be beaten but for those who tend to get restless this Burberry leather travel Backgammon set is not only sublime to look at but also a great game to while away in the jasmine scented summer breeze! At £550 it is probably not one for everyone, you’d have to be a serious gamer or it’s a perfect gift for the man or woman who has everything.
2.) These Kiel James Patrick ‘Shades of Pearl’ sunglasses straps are gorgeous and wouldn’t be out of place aboard a yacht. The wearer also needs to come with a glass of champagne in hand and know the difference between port and starboard, darling!
3.) Who says luxury can’t have an important message too. This exquisite Gucci rainbow purse has this season’s GG motif, introducing its rainbow and love appliqué which has been created to represent an inclusive idea of love and acceptance.
4.) Sorry / not sorry about this entry. Not quite sure what it is about this colourful inflatable unicorn from ASOS but we’re already planning our selfie whilst posing by the pool at the holiday bbq! It’s one of the most awesome things we have seen in 2017, don’t believe us? See for yourself.
5.) There is something about this luxury beach set from Frescobol Carioca that makes you think of the Kennedy dynasty frolicking on the beach in the Hamptons or Princess Margaret at her Mustique hideaway, and we just want them because they’re so pretty, we might even use them.
6.) What better way to get rid of the sand between your toes than with Ralph Lauren. We adore this plush cotton terry towel, especially as it has a Caribbean theme. Also great for wrapping around someone else in a big happy hug (they should put that in their spec).
7.) This is THE suitcase if you want to make a statement. The Piazzale by Maxwell Scott bags makes you feel like Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday. You know you have made it when you have a suitcase like this and you won’t want to let it out of your sight.
8.) It always helps to have some back up toiletries to use on the plane or at the airport if there is a delay. This Aesop Jetset kit is everything you need for in-flight essentials and smells great.
9.) Sleepmasks are the new cool and you’re nobody if you don’t wear one on a flight. It’s important to get your beauty sleep so you are refreshed for your holiday but it doesn’t hurt to look beautiful while you are sleeping also, that’s why we love this HVN cherry-print silk eye mask from Matches Fashion it just makes you want to sleep looking at it.
