As every day we rocket closer to the future, April seemed as good a time as any to shower a bit of attention on an oft ignored type of traveler. Whether your destination be the next galaxy, or the next century, we’ve got you covered with some must have items!

Keep your hot drinks hot in this TARDIS Mug. Styled after the famed space & time-ship, it comes with a top to keep the heat in while you and your companion tend to whatever is attacking London this week. I love the shape of this, very unique. Of course, it’s bigger on the inside. If you’re looking for a little more of a Happy Hour, open your favorite brew with the Star Trek Enterprise Bottle Opener. A weighty opener shaped after everyone’s favorite Star Fleet ship (no offense Defiant). Sleek and fun, a must have for a trip to the final frontier. Sit back with a cool Romulan Ale and enjoy a game of Dabo.

When traveling to new (and old) destinations, the key thing to remember is: Always Be Prepared. With the Doctor Who 11th Doctor’s Diecast Sonic Screwdriver…Screwdriver, be set for every obstacle that comes your way. It may look just like the Doctor’s, but this one comes equipped with several flat and Phillips head attachments, on the off chance you run into some wood. Keep it in your Delorean for any quick maintenance. In case you end up rubbing elbows with Beethoven on your excellent adventure, be ready with the Olde Tyme Writing Set. This includes a feather and wood pen with ink and several heads so you have something ready to lend when he needs to jot down a few notes.

Did I say Delorean? How do you expect to get back to the future without your very own? Well…this may be a model, but it’s closer to the real thing than your Prius and every step counts! The Back to the Future Lights and Sound Mark I Delorean may not have a working flux capacitor but it’s 1.21 gigawatts of fun. Keep it as a reminder of travels to come, or use it as a model to build your own.

Happy April 1st!
