Christmas gifts for the nomad
We’ve all got a nomad traveller in our lives… that one person that refuses to give it up and get a 9 -5 and really, who blames them? With no permanent residence and their abode being wherever they pitch it – it makes gifting them flipping hard.
We never gave up on that dream, and although we now spend time in our London HQ, we’re constantly escaping on surf missions, seeking the snow or broadening our cultural horizons and getting amongst it. As such, founders Sam & Ben (Bear & Bear) set about curating our ‘Travel Smart‘ range that perfectly suits the wondering nomad. We’ve picked out some true gems that will be sure to impress that certain global roamer.
