Christmas Gift Guide 2023

With Christmas just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about the perfect gifts for your friends and family. If you have loved ones who frequently travel, then travel accessories can be the perfect gift for them. Not only are they practical, but they also add a touch of luxury to any trip. Here are some of the best travel accessories that you can gift this Christmas.

Who are you shopping for? Your Secret Santa, your mum, your partner? Our range has something for everyone but here are our favourite recommendations this year!

For Her

For the travel gal in your life who appreciates the beautiful things.

Stocking Stuffer - Sleep Mask

Our gorgeous Midnight Crusade Sleep Masks make a great gift for the lady in your life. They are made from a high quality satin and feature a stretchy elastic band for comfort. The material is soft, breathable and lightweight, which prevents creasing on the skin. They’re not just a great Christmas gift, but also the perfect beauty sleep accessory.

With four colours, there’s an option to suit all personality types. Choose classy, mysterious black, elegant and powerful navy blue, soft, feminine light pink or warm and calming deep purple.

Christmas Present – Take Me Away Cosmetic Case

This perfect Christmas gift idea features a cruelty free soft leather exterior in a gorgeous pale pink colour, with dual gold zip detailing. It’s incredibly spacious without being too bulky. The beauty-loving lady in your life will love how much this cosmetic case fits. Our favourite detail on this one is the 6 removable inserts, so she can customise the inner spacing to fit everything she needs.

Additionally, the lid features a zip pocket and four brush-holder pockets, to keep them organised and away from other products. The classic black interior is designed to hide any spills or mess left behind by make-up or beauty products. Plus, if you need to, it’s easy to clean with a warm, damp cloth. Our Take Me Away Cosmetic Case is also available in black!

Tip: Take this gift to the next level! Fill it with some of her favourite beauty products, lollies or stocking fillers before you wrap it and watch her face light up as she discovers all of the extra treats on Christmas Day.


For Him

That’s right! Midnight Crusade also has the perfect Christmas gift for the travel-loving gentleman.

Christmas Present – Packing Cubes

For the fellow who loves to keep organised! Our packing cubes come in three different colours to suit any and all of the gentlemen in your life. These are great for guys who travel often, but can also double as drawer organisers at home. This set of six features a variety of sizes and styles to keep clothes, undies, socks and anything else organised and accessible.

Our favourite feature of this gift is the drawstring bag. It’s perfect to hold a pair of shoes in and super versatile for travelling or every-day use. Keep dirty footwear separate from his clothes, or transport sweaty gym shoes in the car without stinking up the whole vehicle.

Tip: This is the nesting doll of gifts. Up the ante and make it a little more exciting by stuffing the packing cubes with small treats. Some ideas could include one of our stocking fillers, his favourite sweet treat or a gift card!

For the Student

For your niece, sibling, co-worker or friend in school or university. Midnight Crusade has some great Christmas gift ideas to help the student in your life stay organised and on top of things when they get busy.

Stocking Stuffer – Quick Spritz Travel Atomiser

Think back to your university days. After spending hours in a crowded lecture theatre or library, you’d probably experienced a very interesting mix of scents. This Travel Atomiser is a great schoolbag-friendly size to take your choice of scent out into the world with you. There’s no worries about that perfume/cologne bottle smashing when it gets thrown around amongst the other contents of your bag. The travel-friendly cap is great to prevent spills/leaks from contaminating your laptop, too! This one comes in two sizes – 8ml or 15ml.

Christmas Present – Behind it All Backpack

We designed this backpack to be the perfect travel backpack, but it also makes an awesome schoolbag! This backpack is made from durable, cruelty-free leather, so it’s ready to take on the tackle of every day. What makes this so perfect for school are the extensive compartments inside, to fit in everything you need. The large main pocket features a dedicated space for your water bottle. Your loved one can farewell inconvenient and damaging spills from water bottles rolling around the bottom of a bag. It also features protected space for a laptop or tablet, and a sleeve for their phone.

There’s nothing worse after a long day of Uni than fishing around your bag for ages looking for your keys. That’s why we’ve included a handy carabiner clip inside the main pocket to latch keys onto for easy access. On the back, they’ll find yet another hidden pocket. It’s perfect to hold their ID, so they’ll always know exactly where it is when they hit the library printers. We love this in Black for every-day use, but it’s also available in Beige and Tan. This is a great Christmas gift idea that they will definitely get a lot of use out of!

Stocking Stuffer – Fill Me Up Travel Bottles

This set of four travel bottles is a great gift for someone who’s constantly on the go. With a 60mL capacity per bottle, they’re the perfect carry-on size for all airlines. The pack also includes a clear, travel-friendly carry pouch that won’t cause any hold-ups at airport security! Made from soft, luxurious-feeling silicone, these bottles squeeze out product smoothly and consistently, so there’s no waste at the end. The wide opening also makes them easy to fill and clean out.

Tip: If you know this traveller will be heading on a trip soon, take this gift to the next level by pre-filling them with some of their favourite products before you gift it to them.

Christmas Present – Everything Travel Wallet

There’s a reason we call this the Everything Travel Wallet. When designing this, we really thought of everything. Everything they need, everything at their fingertips, everything organised. Thanks to the included wrist and bag straps, this gift isn’t just the perfect travel wallet. It can also make for a very handy sling-bag for the every-day or on a night out. The inside features two zip pockets, perfect for holding cash and keeping currencies separate when travelling between countries.

There are also two external pockets. The zip pocket is perfect for keeping all travel documents safe and secure. The other outer pocket will keep their boarding pass handy through the airport. With a built in pen-holder, they will never have to borrow a pen again (a bonus for post-pandemic travel!). This wallet has numerous card and passport holders, and is still spacious enough to hold a mobile phone and lipstick. Travellers absolutely love this wallet, which makes it the perfect Christmas gift for your travel-loving friend or family member.

Tip: As the old wives tale goes, it’s bad luck to gift a wallet without any money inside it. Is your giftee heading on an international trip soon? If yes, we suggest buying some of their destination’s currency to gift in the wallet. We’re sure they will think of you when they buy their first holiday coffee with it!
