Black Ballistic Nylon Travel Necktie Case Holder & Collar Stays

And a little something for those who are traveling for work, have a wedding or other special function. Or maybe you just like to look good when you’re on the road. If you’re like me, I always lose collar stays so it’s nice to have some of my own.

Vetelli Leather Toiletry Bag for Men


Geoff’s Pick – I love the look of the vintage leather and zipper placement. The configuration I find quite handy where you can put larger items and liquids in the bottom compartment and keep the top one for quick access items.

Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones

Block out the noise! These are amazing, on a bus, on a plane, in the airport or just want some uninterrupted audio time, these are just the best.  Note, choose wisely, there is a set for Apple devices and a set for Andriod devices. You can select right from the Amazon page.

Kindle Paperwhite E-reader

These days you’ve just got to have one of these. Take a stack of books with you, get some from the library before you go, load yourself up with travel books to read about where you’re going.  It’s like it was made for a traveller.

Mogix External Battery Charger

Get charging!  Keep your phone, tablet or anything else that charges using a USB port fully charged while you’re on the move. You can even charge two things at once!

Braun Series 5 5090cc Electric Foil Shaver

Multiple razors and a can of shaving cream are a bit of a pain. Braun’s cordless shaver is waterproof and washable and can even be used in the shower. It has all the awesome shaving technology you’d expect from Braun but the really cool thing is that is has worldwide voltage, so you can charge it anywhere while you’re travelling!

Wallet Ninja



This is a steel 18-in-1 multi tool that’s flat and takes up no weight or space. It’s the size of a credit card, put it in your bag and forget about it – until you need it that is!

Travel Adapter

With all the stuff we have to charge, a worldwide travel adapter is only useful if it has USB ports. Simultaneously charge in 150 different countries, contains two USB ports.

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX100K


It’s no secret that we really love taking great photos. I have to say Panasonic has really knocked it out of the park on this one. It packs quite a punch with its Leica lens and 4K capability in both video and stills. All the power of SLR in a small, portable point-and-shoot.
