Now we know the idea of bringing a kettle on holiday with you may sound a bit too much, but since the Nathome Collapsible Silicone Kettle is portable and lightweight, you won’t have to worry about it taking up too much space or adding extra weight to your luggage. The kettle even has a temperature control function so you can heat up the water to lukewarm level or boiling point. How much: RMB¥199 (around HK$225) Click here to buy
