Gifting 101: So Your Friend Is Obsessed With 'Bruised Passports'? Gift 'Em These


    If you're on the gram as much as we are, chances are you already know who Savi and Vid are. The creators of Bruised Passports, these two are couple, travel, food, beauty and literally all kinds of goals that exist. Bruised Passports' Instagram page is a series of beautifully laid out pictures of the couple with paradisical sites from across the globe in the backdrop. 

    Now, if you know someone who is a Bruised Passport loyalist (someone who talks about them any chance they get) or you yourself love to virtually travel with them, then consider this list your Holy Grail. Travel appropriate fashion, gizmos and accessories that you can gift the travel freaks in your life. 

    Lezzz go!

    From Tropicals

    You'll often see these folks rocking gorgeous florals and tropical prints while spending their summers in Sri Lanka, Malaysia and other tropical locations with heavenly beaches and palm trees. So, for that friend who won't quit buying more florals, get her this Floral Printed Shrug from Zachi or perhaps this Flared Sleeves Tropical Printed Dress from The August Co. Men, check out these Pineapple and Leaf Printed Shirt from Tusok. This Cherry Blossom Bagru Shirt from Nishabd shouts all things breezy and summery. 

    Sneakers For The Win

    90's Kids Graphic Blue Slip-Ons

    We can all agree about how crucial comfortable kicks and slip ons are while travelling. Savi and Vid carry almost four pairs of shoes each while going on long travels. Well, sneakerheads would know that VegNonVeg houses all the latest sneakers (and many limited-editions too) from different brands. However, if your friend favours fun, jazzed-up footwear then these handpainted shoes by Jolaa can make for a thoughtful gift. 

    Skincare Essentials

    Oil-Control Refreshing Facewash (150ml)

    Oil-Control Refreshing Facewash (150ml)

    Facewash, moisturizers, fragrances - basic beauty and skincare essentials are a must for the couple. The Oil-Control Refreshing Facewash from Arata is plant-based and will definitely not strip you off of your skin's natural oils. If every month is No-Shave November for your friend then get them this Shield Pollution Beard and Face Wash from Phy. Cruelty-free and organic, this Natural Face Cream by Seven Chakras helps keep the skin hydrated and deeply moisturized. Slightly lighter is Plum's Aloe Caring Day Moisturizer, should you friend prefer something mild. 

    Travel Kits & Pouches

    Birds of Paradise Beauty Bag

    These folks highly recommend packing convenient and smart. So, think travel cases, beauty kits, et al. We're in love with these Beauty Bags from Wouf, Spain on Modern Quests. A treasure chest when it comes to gifts, be sure to find a lot of different kinds of travel bags and pouches here. 


    Kindle (10th Gen), (Black)

    Can we please consider books as travel essentials? Savi always carries books in her handbags and isn't much of an e-book reader. If your friend loves to read (multiple books at once) then there's nothing better than gifting them a Kindle. Super-light and easy to carry around, these come with adjustable screen brightness too. And like Savi, if they're not too old school then here's a list of Online Bookstores that you need to check out. 

    Camera Bags

    Manfrotto Advanced Shoulder Bag VII

    One of the reasons why we were so drawn towards Bruised Passports was the magical pictures of Savi and Vid. These folks have shared a crisp blog on all their travel and photography essentials. Is your friend the designated photographer of the gang? Gift them this Manfrotto Advanced Shoulder Bag which Vid often talks about. Equipped to carry DSLRs, Zoom lenses and more, the bag has neat compartments which are also padded. 

    Portable Espresso Maker

    MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker

    Did you know Vid is a huge coffee freak? As is evident from their blogs, they carry a Handpresso Espresso Machine which is literally God sent. We also found this battery-operated MiniPresso GR Espresso Maker which is equally easy to use and is also hand-operated. Bet your caffeine addict mate is going to love this one. 


    The gifting season has begun and here's our chunk of all the Gifting Guides that you'll ever need.
