RFID blocking/anti-theft travel wallet
This gift idea makes the perfect travel companion.
There’s plenty of room to keep your cell phone and passport safe. It also blocks RFID readers to protect electronic identity theft.
There’s room for 6 cards (or more) plus space for cash. Zip closed and drop into your day bag or carry as a wristlet (the strap is removable).
Anti-theft crossbody bag
This Travelon bag has zippers that lock shut so that you know that nobody can just slip the zipper open while you’re not paying attention. There’s also an RFID blocking compartment to protect your credit cards from electronic identity theft.
The bag body and strap are slash resistant making it far less likely that a purse snatcher will be able to easily cut the strap and get away with your bag.
It’s also very lightweight and surprisingly roomy, holding all the essentials you’ll need for your day of exploring.
This one is a great affordable gift for female travelers. A good quality sleep mask is a must for me on a long-haul or red eye flight.
Look for an adjustable mask like this one so you can adjust it to the pressure you’re most comfortable with and to completely block out light. And there’s plenty of room for your eyelashes so you can blink freely and won’t destroy your eye makeup.
It’s hand washable and comes in a ton of fun colors and patterns to match your personality.
Wireless noise cancelling head phones
If you’re looking for a good value for over-ear noise cancelling headphones, try this best seller on Amazon. These Anker Soundcore Life headphones reduce ambient noise by up to 90%.
Get an estimated 40 hours of play time on a single charge. If you’re in a hurry you can get 4 hours of play time on a 5-minute charge.
They feature memory foam cushion around the ears.
If you want to splash out on a top tier gift, I will always recommend Sony headphones over Bose.
This set comes with features like a built-in microphone so you can take calls, voice access to music through Alexa, and “quick attention mode” which allows you to instantly adjust your music to have a conversation.
Kindle Paperwhite is perfect for travelers who enjoy e-books but don’t enjoy reading them on backlit phone or tablet screens.
The slim design is ideal for slipping into your bag so you have it with you on the go to read whenever you have a few minutes to pick up a good book or just whenever the mood strikes.
You can choose 8 or 16 GB of storage. (16 GB will hold an insane number of e-books, like these amazing books about travel.)
The Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof…so go ahead and use it at the pool or during your bubble bath.
Protect your passport from damage and identity theft with this stylish passport holder that comes in all sorts of fun colors.
There’s also space for cash, ID cards and credit cards and more so you can take advantage of this cover’s RFID blocking to prevent electronic identity theft.
The slim design makes it easy to slip into your travel purse, day bag or back pack. Don’t put it in your pocket. Please.
Classic Moleskine notebook
Among travel gifts for her there’s nothing like a nice Moleskin notebook. The classic hard cover large size (5” x 8.25”) is perfect for journaling your travels, keeping track of your “to do” list, and more.
And the thick, high-quality paper handles inky pens quite well.
Use the inner folder to hold ticket stubs, receipts or other remembrances of your trips. The Moleskine makes a great travel journal.
Comes with an elastic band closure and comes in a ton of great colors.
As far as travel gifts for her, good quality travel pillows are great options. Getting some sleep on your long haul or red eye flight can make a world of difference in beating jet lag.
The AirComfy Ease Inflatable Travel Pillow is more than just a pillow for your neck. You can also use it for upper back and lumbar support. And since it’s inflatable you can control the firmness.
It weighs only a few ounces and (deflated) packs into a small bag that you can clip onto the outside of your carry-on if you wish. It’s perfect for when you’re trying to pack light.
A solid power bank should be on every list of best travel gifts for women. This one by Anker is one of the smallest and lightest 10000 mAh power banks out there…great for slipping into your day bag.
It comes with a micro-USB cable (USB-C and iPhone/iPad Lightening cable sold separately) and is good for multiple cell phone charges.
Yeti Rambler Mug
Among the best travel gifts for women has to be the Yeti Rambler mug. It’s dishwasher safe and comes in a wide variety of beautiful colors guaranteed not to scratch, peel or fade.
These guys hold 14 ounces of your favorite hot or cold beverage and are engineered to take a beating. I’m not recommending you go out of your way to treat your Rambler badly; I’m just saying…if you drop it on the pavement it’ll be fine.
And the wide base means it’s less likely to tip over.
Hydro Flask water bottle
Hydro Flash stainless steel bottles are dishwasher safe and don’t sweat when filled with cold beverages.
Designed to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for hours. The 24-ounce size great for taking on the go and even fits in your car cup holder.
Kate Spade Vegan Leather Luggage Tag
Lovely and feminine luggage tags will help you keep track of your bags.
Made of leatherette (vegan leather) with gold-colored hardware, it includes an insert for your contact information (but hidden away from curious eyes). Measures 7”x 2.6”.
Hotel gift card
Have you thought about experience gifts? Gift cards for travel accommodations make excellent presents for those with a love of travel.
This way you can be a part of her travel experiences in a real and tangible way. The gift can get a hotel room wherever they prefer.
Among gift ideas for practical items, this is definitely one of my favorites.
Travel wrap/travel scarf
The Eddie Bauer Daisy Wrap is 100% cotton and can be worn as a travel scarf, wrap, or as more of a cape (with the armholes).
It also includes a small zipper pocket giving it that little extra touch of something extra for travelers.
Scratch-off world map
Scratch-off world maps are popular travel gifts and they’re great especially for holiday season gift giving.
It’s perfect for displaying in your favorite travel lover’s home so they can track visually all of their world travels, solo or as a family.
The map is printed on quality paper and has a gold coating that can be scratched off to reveal a colorful, detailed map underneath.
As you scratch off the countries and states you have visited, you reveal more and more of the map.
