Give the gift of travel without splurging on a plane ticket.

By Gourmet Traveller + Lanson
Travel is on the cards again, which means those struck with a severe case of wanderlust are rearing to jump on the next plane to anywhere beyond home ground. Inspire the travel lovers in your life with a gift that speaks to their personal holiday style – whether they travel with their tastebuds, to unwind and relax, or prefer to see as many iconic sights as possible. Instead of overwhelming you with a dozen ideas, we've created a concise edit of five brilliant gifts for the travel lovers in your life.
Paris Chic

It's no secret that books have the power to transport you: it's not called 'armchair travel' without reason. For the frequent flyers in your life, inspire their next adventure with a beautiful travel guide. This volume is an illustrative journey through Paris, featuring quaint bistros, picturesque alleyways, and unique characters which brings the city – and her wanderlust – to life.
Lanson Le Rosé Champagne

Another way to experience foreign soil without leaving home is through your tastebuds. For a lavish gift reminiscent of a getaway to the French countryside, turn to a bottle of Champagne from the region itself. For an extra special bottle, try the sweet, fruity, and delicate Lanson Le Rosé Champagne. The fresh red berry notes make this cuvée a great pairing with food. So, for a festive Mother's Day lunch, pair Le Rosé with half-cooked salmon in sesame crust and small fennel, or with tuna tataki and soy sauce, ginger and wasabi. As for dessert, Le Rosé Champagne is gorgeous with strawberries and cream.
Tasting Notes
• Colour: Le Rosé has a beautiful subtle pink salmon colour with fine, light bubbles.
• Aroma: The fine scents of raspberry, pomegranate and blood orange enhance a delicate note of rose.
• Palate: On the palate, a beautiful mineral crispness is accompanied by subtle floral and fruity notes of strawberry, redcurrant, and pomelo.
Carry On Suitcase

Prepare your friends for their next holiday with travel accessories - such as an eye mask, pint-sized perfume, or a new suitcase. The Carry On suitcase by July allows you to personalise your present by adding a monogram to the outer shell. Designed in Melbourne, July cases elevate their travel experience with handy features such as a hidden laundry bag, soft-to-touch rubber handle, and an ejectable battery to charge your phone. The ideal gift any travel aficionado will love.
From $295, July
Gourmet Traveller Gift Card

Without a doubt, food is the best way to experience a new culture. To cover all bases, the Gourmet Traveller Gift Card gives your friends and family access to the top restaurants on Australia's dining scene - allowing them to choose from the crème de la crème of Australia's cafes, wine bars and restaurants. The variety of cuisines let your gift recipient travel around the world, sans plane ticket.
Beauty Bag

For any woman, a travel-sized beauty bag is a must, and makes for the perfect present. This indulgent hand cream bundle from luxury brand L'Occitane comprises of a nourishing shea butter hand cream, relaxing pillow mist and so much more. Plus, the bag itself is a great size to stow in a carry-on bag.
