Wednesday 16 May 2012
1. Livescribe ECO Smartpen
This smartpen is light, portable and captures everything you write in your notebook, notepad or paper, allowing you to print it out later at your leisure.
2. In-flight toiletries bottles
If you have to rush from the aircraft to your first meeting you'll want to look good. Decant your favourite toiletries into these mini bottles approved for in-flight use.
3. Shirt Shuttle
The Shirt Shuttle stops your shirt looking like a crumpled crisp packet when you get it out for your business meeting after a long journey.
4. Osprey Pullman passport cover
Frequent business travellers find their passports can soon look tatty. But the Pullman passport cover is elegant and smart.
5. Logitech N700 lapdesk
Doubtless at some point or other you'll need to do some work on your laptop but won't have a table to work on. The ergonomic N700 provides a comfy surface.
6. Lakeland packing squares
Fed up with suitcase chaos? Belts, scarves, accessories, adaptors, cables and all your other smaller bits and bobs can be kept organised in this trio of zip-up storage pouches.
7. M&S mini travel alarm clock
There's a lot to be said for being able to see the local time whenever you wake up, especially with jetlag, and this alarm clock has luminous hour and minute hands.
8. John Lewis leather luggage tag
Many of us forget to attach tags with our destination and home address to our cases. Fix these smart leather ones in place instead.
9. Salter luggage scales
Avoid those unnecessary excess baggage fines by attaching this gizmo to your bag. Then lift by the handle and wait for the beep to check the weight of your case.
10. Wenger two-wheeled briefcase
This two-wheeled briefcase has a padded section for your laptop, a file section with dividers for organised packing and a strong handle.
