Fulton Umbrellas

Do you have someone in your life who deserves to be treated like a queen? You should get her a Fulton umbrella!

Established in London 1956, the family-owned company is the United Kingdom's and Canada's largest supplier of umbrellas. The company is so prestigious in quality that their products are frequently used by the royal family! Indeed, they hold a royal warrant to Her Majesty the Queen herself and, previously, to Her Majesty the Queen Mother. However, you don't have to be of royal lineage to make the most of the rainy weather.

Travellers can pack their sturdy rain gear, made of high-quality materials, to make even the wettest of days an enjoyable one. After all, though you unfortunately cannot choose the weather that you will face while on the trip of a lifetime, you can select the products you will bring along with you to help make the most of your time.

Keepsake's medium-sized "Beacon" frame, featuring an image I captured in Capo Vaticano, Italy.


We've all been there — captured the most beautiful photo, worthy of being displayed in a picture frame to be admired by everyone entering the room. For people who travel a lot, this has never been more true. After all, with so many photos taken while on the adventure of a lifetime, it's easy to accumulate a photographic story to go along with it.

Keepsake helps make the process of framing incredibly simple, from start to handcrafted finish. You can download their app and order directly from your phone (that's what we did here at Wanderous Affair), or drag and drop your favourite photos to upload onto their website. Either way, you are given a plethora of options both in sizing and frame styles, all of which give you the perfect opportunity to help your favourite traveller share their holiday memories with friends and family alike.

Laws of Motion

Every female has been there — trying to figure out how many outfits are truly necessary to bring on a trip, be is a short or long-haul adventure. When space is limited, they typically have to decide between style and comfort, casual and dressy. Thankfully, Laws of Motion is here to help solve this dilemma once and for all. There is only one choice: the Alpha Dress!

With 99 microsizes (yes, you read that correctly!), you can be sure that this LBD is one that you will rock in every city that you visit. Because it'll be in size... YOU! Not only can their dresses be spiced up for a more formal night out with heels and statement jewellery, they can also be dressed down with a pair of flats and a sunhat for a walk around the city. Though unfortunately, as of right now, the company only ships within the USA, they will hopefully be making their way to Canada (and worldwide, for that matter) in the future!

Looking for another colour? No worries. Laws of Motion also offers the Alpha Dress in red and navy, all tailored to the dimensions of your body.

"Ocean Songs" Aquamarine Bracelet. Photo courtesy of Stones and Roses.

Stones and Roses

Not only are these bracelets ideal for protection against certain negative energies while welcoming in positive ones, they're a stunning addition to any woman's daily jewellery set. Stones and Roses was conceived by Natalia Lafortune, who hand-makes these gemstone jewellery pieces while infusing them with positive intentions. This was rooted in her findings of how "gemstone jewellery help people who are trying to conceive," but slowly began to expand beyond this single notion.

Today, Natalia offers a plethora of stunning bracelets for both men and women (yes, even the men on your gifting list can benefit from her hand-crafted pieces!). From the travelling protection stones that our team absolutely adores, featuring aquamarine and malachite, to stones to help manifest love, emotional well-being, and passion for life, Stones and Roses has you covered on all fronts.

We recommend doubling (or even tripling) up on your favourite pieces, stacking them on your wrist for whatever things you are seeking to welcome into your heart or while on your next adventure.
