GIVEAWAY 1: Maps & Coordinates Themed Travel Bundle

Because you can never have too much stuff with maps or coordinates on! This bundle features some of our favourite map-related gear, all of which we use ourselves.


£50 Life Less Ordinary Voucher

We love these unique coordinate bracelets and necklaces from travel enthusiast couple Joe and Amy at Life Less Ordinary. Made from ethically sustainable tagua seeds and personalised with your special co-ordinates, these make great travel memories and gifts for loved ones. There are other amazing personalised pieces in the collection to choose from too, including cufflinks, earrings, anklets and bags. Go on, take your pick! Read our personal review of the bracelets here.

Huge thanks to Amy and Joe at Life Less Ordinary for providing the voucher for this giveaway!

World Map Laundry Bag

We take a couple of these EVERYWHERE we go, they’re great for keeping your dirty laundry separate from your clean clothes, and also double up as bags if you need a bit of extra space. If you like the range, the suppliers also make bags of differing sizes, for e.g. shoes, undies etc. We have the whole set and highly recommend them for easy stuffing when packing that suitcase! If you can’t wait, or don’t win, you can buy them here.

Map Glasses Case

You really never can have too many map-related items, which is why we love this map glasses case! It’s sturdy which is good news for travellers, or just use it at home and be reminded of your adventures on a daily basis.

Foldable Travel Map Water Bottle

Single use plastic water bottles are a thing of the past, which is why you should always take a reusable bottle with you on your holidays or camping trips. This 480ml foldable bottle is ideal for packing down when it’s not in use, and even has a cool map icon on it!

Giveaway begins: Friday 30th October

Giveaway ends: Midnight Friday 6th November

GIVEAWAY 2: Travel Memories Bundle

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while you’ll know that we love collecting memories of all the incredible places we visit, and with these prizes you can do the same!


£75 El Camino Bracelets Voucher

We’ve been adding to our substantial collection of El Camino bracelets and necklaces for several years now, and love being able to carry our personal travel memories around with us everywhere we go. It’s like having a charm bracelet, but better! The collectable beads are called ‘steps’, each one engraved with a country or destination relevant to you. Even better, steps can be customised, so if you want something a bit off the wall or have been to a really off the beaten track location, then that’s not a problem! We love the step separators too, which range from hand made coconut wood spacers and adventure steps, to colourful glass ocean and region steps. Read our personal review of the bracelets here.

Huge thanks to Candace and the wonderful team at El Camino for providing the voucher for this giveaway!

Scratch Off World Map

These are great fun to use as a way of charting your adventures, being able to scratch off a destination each time you visit a new country. These Scratch Maps also make brilliant gifts for the travel lover in your life too!

£20 Bob Books Voucher

There are lots of online photo book companies out there, and we’ve tried several, but Bob Books really stands out in terms of quality, and has been our go-to supplier for years. We’ve written all about how to use the platform here, and highly recommend checking them out if you want to put together a travel photo album (or even a wedding book, which is what we did when we got married all those years ago!).

Map Umbrella

This eye-catching world map umbrella goes everywhere with us, both here at home in the UK (where it rains a lot!) and on our travels (where it also rains a lot, but is usually too hot to wear a waterproof). It’s certainly an umbrella that invites nice comments from passers-by, and it a great way to remind yourselves of the good travel times when you’re just out and about doing your weekly shop!

Giveaway begins: Friday 6th November

Giveaway ends: Midnight Friday 13th November

GIVEAWAY 3: Adventure Travel Bundle


£100 Gifting Owl Voucher

Gifting Owl is a global experience gift-giving platform, with incredible fun activities and adventures in 900 different destinations (across 115 countries) to choose from, ranging from hot air balloon rides and sky diving to cooking classes and sightseeing tours. Gift vouchers are sent via email, SMS or social media, and if you don’t want to use it yourself, it will make a really unique gift for the travel lover in your life.

Massive thanks to the lovely folks at Gifting Owl for providing the voucher for this giveaway!

Cabin Zero Shoulder Bag

This 3L Cabin Zero shoulder bag is the perfect travelling companion for exploring the city or taking on a plane, and is aptly named the ‘Sidekick’. It has multiple pockets for storing all your essentials, including a hidden RFID blocking pocket for valuables. The shoulder strap is adjustable, and it weights just 180g. We’ve chosen it in a lovely Aruba Blue colour.


Everybody needs a buff. It’s such a versatile bit of kit, and can be worn in a number of ways to suit whatever activity you’re doing. We personally love wearing them ‘pirate style’, but they work great as bandanas or wristbands too.


We have multiple sporks tucked away in different places – some in the car, a few in the kitchen…and I even carry one around in my handbag, because you just never know when it might come in useful. They’re a great multi-tool, combining a spoon, knife and fork into one, and being so lightweight they’re perfect for taking on your travels or even a camping holiday.

Giveaway begins: Friday 13th November

Giveaway ends: Midnight Friday 20th November

GIVEAWAY 4: Packing Essentials Bundle

There are some things we just can’t do without when we travel, and here are some of our tried and tested favourites:


Ultimate Travel Dress or 5 Way Cardigan from Kameleon Rose

The Kameleon Rose clothing is pure genius, with a few select items creating an incredibly diverse capsule wardrobe for when you want to pack light without compromising on style. Designed by travellers for travellers, the material is quick drying and packs up small so is great for trips of all types and lengths. For your prize, choose either the Ultimate Travel Dress, which offers 20 outfits in one and doesn’t crease so you don’t need to bother with an iron; or the 5 Way Cardigan which is super comfy and perfect for dressing up or down as you please.

Thanks so much to the amazing Kameleon Rose team for providing the prize for this giveaway!

Kameleon Rose Dress and Cardigan

Set of Packing Cubes

A good set of packing cubes makes travelling less stressful when it comes to trying to cram everything into your suitcase or holdall. This prize is a pack of multiple sizes to fit everything from shirts and trousers to pants and socks!

Solid Shampoo

My latest obsession both whilst travelling and here at home is solid shampoo! And it’s one of those things I wish I’d discovered earlier. Each bar lasts heaps of washes, and far longer than a standard bottle of shampoo, and even better, there’s no plastic waste. There are all sorts of different shampoo bars out there for all types of hair, so you might want to experiment with a few to find the one that suits your hair best. I’ve written an extensive review of some of my favourite shampoo bars, and have chosen this Citrus Paradisi bar as it’s a good all rounder to get you started. Smells divine too!

Silicone Travel Bottles

These squeezable bottles are amazing! The pliant silicone material means you can get every last drop of shower gel, conditioner or clothes washing liquid out without wasting anything. They’re lightweight too, and come in a range of sizes all under 100ml, so are perfect for carry on luggage.
