When you travel all the time, it can be tough to find the time to do all your Christmas shopping. But why wait until you get home? Shopping on the road can be infinitely more fun and result in way more interesting and original gifts!
London’s Heathrow Airport is one of my favourite airports in the world, especially Terminal 5. It is home to some of the world’s best shopping, especially for the many British brands I love. If you’re flying British Airways through Terminal 5, you can also shop online at the British Airways High Life store at least three days before your flight and have your items delivered directly to your seat on board the plane! How’s that for convenient? Or, if you’re passing through Heathrow’s Terminal 5 like I did recently, you can do your Christmas shopping at the airport and find great gifts for friends and family back home. From expensive luxury items to affordable treats that are guaranteed to delight, all of these suggestions will fit easily in the overhead bin as you head home. Here are my top 10 picks to get you started:
