This has been a crazy year of travel for me and at last count I had taken almost forty flights in the past twelve months – insane! As I reflected on all the amazing countries and cultures I’ve been fortunate to visit throughout 2013 I started to think of cool gifts to give those special people in our lives that either love to travel or have a connection to a specific country. Pilot & Captain are the perfect pit stop for those very people thanks to their top notch assortment of travel-related products. From stylish carry on totes to typographic tees and colourful wall prints, the brand offers gifts for those often hard to buy loved ones like uncles, brothers, dads and beyond. Personally I can’t quit the Paris CDG tote (especially as it’s exactly a year to the day that my fiancé proposed to me in Paris!) but I’d love to know which tote gets your vote?

  1. An awesome find and at the perfect time as I needed holiday gift ideas for this weekend’s shopping and I’d never have found these at the mall!!

  2. Oh wow my husband loves planes AND we got engaged in NYC, I’ve just put a nice order in for his birthday, perfect gifts. THANK YOU.

  3. Terrific! I was invited to a bridal shower where the request was money as gifts so that the bride and groom could go on a honeymoon abroad. I also added cute passport covers, one for the bride and one for the groom.

  4. Oh happy engagement anniversary Will! And 40 flights in a year, that’s crazy indeed! Very cute totes and a lovely original idea… I can’t tell you how many times I cart things around in totes, I always find a use for them. M xx

  5. HI dear,
    where I can buy the usa&EU luggage tags?
    Thank you for your help

  6. I love those luggage tag prints, they are so cute! Those totes are going on my sister’s birthday list too. She’s always travelling around so it’s tricky to buy her things that won’t get in the way when she’s next moving on!

  7. I’m a typography nerd and I enjoy travel-inspired designs so this whole post is right up my alley 😀 I’ve never heard of Pilot & Captain til now so thank you for introducing this awesome line of products!
