The best travel gifts for women

Best travel gifts for women – large budgets

#1 A trip somewhere

Let’s start this list with what’s obviously one of the best gifts for women who travel, a trip. Find out which country or city they love and give the gift of travel. Maybe together, or you simply offer to pay for a trip. Simply write a sweet letter in which you explain your gift, or check out #21 and give a gift card for travel!

#2 Anti-theft shoulder bag

Anti-theft shoulder bag

Bags are super practical travel gifts for women, and even more so if they are specifically designed to keep pickpocketers out,m such as this anti-theft bag.

#3 State wine cork holder

State wine cork holder

These wine cork holders in the shape of the various states in the US are great travel gifts for women who love wine, the US, and maps.

#4 Photo collage of her travel photos

A photo collage of her favorite travel photos is one of the best personalized travel gifts for her. Or make a collage of a trip you took together.

#5 International tasting set

One of the best gifts for women who love travel and food are tasting sets of international beverages or food, such as this Around The World Tea Gift from my tea gifts list.

Some other tasting sets you could think off include:

Also, check out numbers 9 and 37 on this list if you are looking for more gifts for women who travel and who love food!

#6 E reader

Kobo Clara HD

E-readers are the best travel gifts for women who love to read. As you can probably imagine, travelers can’t take too many books on a trip. They are simply too heavy. So for those, an e-reader is the perfect gift.

Personally, I have the Kobo Clara HD and I am super happy with it. But you could also check out Amazon’s Kindle or other Kobo models.

#7 Rain jacket

Rain jackets are super practical, yet fun travel gifts for women. One of my favorite travel brands is the North Face, so I picked one of their rain jackets. But also check out Amazon for cheaper alternatives.

Or if you like the idea of giving clothes, check out #39 on the is list for a cheaper alternative.

#8 Travel steamer

Travel-sized steamer

Travel-sized steamers are the best travel gifts for women who love to look fashionable even on vacation. Folding clothes in a backpack or suitcase will always cause some wrinkles somewhere, no matter how skilled of a packer she is. But with this steamer, she can remove all wrinkles from her clothes after arrival and still look flawless!

#9 International DIY food kits

DIY Danish sourdough set

DIY food kits are another example of great travel gifts for her. If she loves cooking of course!

Check out all 25 international DIY food kits for more inspiration, or get this awesome set to make delicious Danish sourdough bread!

#10 Mobile Wi-Fi hotspot

Wi-Fi hotspot

A mobile Wi-FI hotspot is one of the best gifts for her if you want her to have a reliable internet connection anywhere and anytime!

#11 Online language course

The best gifts for women who travel a lot are small gifts that can easily be taken on a trip. Or gifts that don’t take up any space at all, such as a cool skill they can bring anywhere!

And for that, language courses are perfect.

You could give an online language course from Udemy. They literally offer courses for any language you can think of. Turkish, Japanese Russian, and many more, Or simply buy language course boxes or books such as these Spanish books for beginners.

#12 Portable mini espresso maker

Portable mini espresso maker

If you are looking for the best travel gifs for women who love coffee, look no further! This portable mini espresso maker is exactly what you are looking for!

Alright, so apparently you do need to look further because you are still reading this post instead of buying the espresso maker.

Well, in that case, you may want to check out my coffee gifts post for more ideas for the coffee drinking traveler or check #36 on this list.

#13 Photographer gear backpack

Photography gear backpack

Is the woman you are getting this gift for into photography? Then photography-related gifts are by far the best travel gifts for her. One great example is this backpack for all her photography gear.

#14 Portable speaker

Speakers are the best travel gifts for women who love music. And let’s be honest, which woman (or human for that matter) doesn’t love music?

JBL is one of my favorite brands, so check out the JBL GO or other JBL models there. Alternatively, you can find a wide selection of great portable speakers on Amazon.

It’s quite handy for travelers if the speakers are portable, so she can take her speaker and music anywhere.

#15 More travel gifts for women who love music: headphones

Tech Gifts For Travelers: earphones

Sometimes she just wants to listen to music by herself (or perhaps sometimes the people in her surroundings want her to listen to her music by herself 😉 and for those moments, JBL’s headphones are perfect. Or any other brand’s headphones of course.

#16 Shoes

Sketchers

I would only recommend shoes as travel gifts for her if you actually know her shoe size and perhaps more importantly, her style.

Another thing to keep in mind is that travel shoes do need to be practical. High heels are generally not the most practical shoes to take on a trip. Unless she’s traveling with a rather large backpack or suitcase of course.

In other cases, I would opt for small flip-flops, cute sandals, hiking shoes, or sneakers such as these Sketchers.

#17 Camping gifts for her

Camping cooking set

If you are looking for the best travel gifts for women who love camping, perhaps this complete camping cooking set is what you are looking for. Or check out the camping gift guide.

Best travel gifts for women – mid budgets

#18 Hammock

Hammock

Hammocks are another great example of travel gifts for women who love camping.

#19 Money

Money is probably one of the least unique travel gifts for her, but I decided to include it anyways.

First of all, because it is super practical. Traveling is quite an expensive hobby (I know from experience).

And second of all, because you can actually turn money into a super cute and personal gift.

How you may wonder?

By not simply putting money in an envelope, but turning it into a cool origami. I am planning on writing a post about cool ways to gift money to travelers. But up until I finish that post, check out this post for inspiration.

#20 Money belt

Money belt

Alright, maybe simply gifting money wasn’t the perfect gift for you. How about this money belt so she can keep her money safe and still look fashionable?

And no worries if you don’t agree with me on the fashionable part. You can find more than plenty of money belts on Amazon, either well-hidden or more fashionable ones.

#21 Gift cards

Just as money, gift cards will probably never win the award for the most unique travel gifts for her. But that doesn’t make them any less useful.

Some travel gift cards you can think of are:

#22 Sun hat

Sun hat

Sun hats are great gifts for women who travel to sunny destinations often.

Santorini puzzle

This Santorini puzzle is one of the gifts from my Greece gift guide. But of course, you can find a cool puzzle for pretty much any country, city, or national park she loves.

#24 Photo album

Photo album

Pics or it didn’t happen!

Well, with this photo album she can collect all her awesome pictures and memories, so she can always look back at her trip and remember it actually happened.

#25 Guidebooks

Alaskan gifts for travelers: travel books
The best Alaska travel books from the Alaska gift guide

If you already know her next destination, a travel guide would be a great gift. Even if she already has the general travel guide to that country, you may still find a guide about a specific region, about the best hikes, or about the culture and practices of that country or state.

Check out my destinations page, because for each destination I always gather a few of the best guidebooks.

Or just check one of these publishers:

If you don’t know what her next destination is going to be, check out the next gift.

#26 Fun travel books for her

I should probably dedicate an entire post to finding the best travel-related books since there are so many awesome books.

But until then, I just selected six that I personally love. But if you think these books are not the best gift for your lady, don’t get discouraged and head over to Amazon to find a lot (and I truly mean a lot) of fun books related to travel.

  1. National Geographic’s Destinations of a Lifetime
  2. Moon’s Wanderlust
  3. Lonely Planet’s Best Travel in 2022
  4. DK Eyewitness’ Unforgetable Journeys
  5. Stephan Brock’s Hidden Travel
  6. Holly Tuppen’s Sustainable Travel

#27 A gift from a country she loves

A French boules set

The fact that you’ve remembered her favorite country and went to the trouble of finding a gift related to that country, truly shows how much you care for her.

And don’t worry, it’s not actually a lot of trouble to find gifts related to her favorite country. Simply head over to my gifts by destinations page. Or if you are looking for the best French gifts, check out this French boules set.

#28 Travel packing cubes

Travel cubes

Travel packing cubes are very helpful to keep her bag organized and these compression packing cubes will actually help her to fit more in her bag.

However, you can also find cheaper alternatives on Amazon.

#29 Blender to-go

Portable blender

This portable blender is one of the great gifts for women who travel and who love juices. With this blender, they can drink yummy juices wherever they go.

#30 Laundry bag

World map laundry bag

Alright, I’ll be honest with you. Laundry bags are not the most exciting gifts for women who travel. I mean how can something related to laundry be exciting anyways? But with this world map design, it’s actually a super cute ánd practical gift.

#31 Sustainable travel gifts for her

#32 Jewelry organizer

Jewelry organizer

One of the best gifts for women who travel with quite some jewelry, a jewelry organizer.

#33 World map

Scratch map

World maps and travelers are a combination that always works well. Especially if she can scratch off the places she has visited already, and dream about the countries that are still to be visited. And I guess that’s what makes scratch maps great travel gifts for her.

However, if you are looking for more unique gifts for her, check out these 25 world maps and I guarantee you will find more designs beyond scratch maps.

#34 Travel-sized cocktail kit

Travel-sized mojito kit

Travel-sized cocktail kits are awesome travel gifts for women who love cocktails. These kits allow her to change an ordinary soda into a fancy cocktail in the blink of an eye.

Check out the Mojito kit or other cocktail kits on Amazon. Or head over to my travel cocktail gifts for more fun ideas for women who love cocktails!

#35 Safe travel gifts for her

T-shirt with hidden pockets

If you are looking for the best travel gifts for her that also show her how much you love her, then safe travel gifts are the way to go!

I dedicated an entire post to the 25 best gifts to keep travelers safe, so definitely check that one out for more inspiration. Or opt for this t-shirt with hidden pockets, so their valuables remain safe and hidden.

#36 Travel mug

Remember I told you I would share another great gift for women who love coffee and travel? What about a travel mug to keep their coffer hot wherever they go?

Obviously, this also works for women who love tea or hot chocolate!

I really liked this “Oh for fox sake” travel mug, but check out Zazzle, Red Bubble, or Amazon for more inspiration.

#37 International cookbooks

The best Turkish cookbooks
The best Turkish cookbooks from the Turkey gift guide

Remember I mentioned I had a few great travel gifts for women who love food?

Well, here’s another one; international cookbooks!

In every country’s gift guide, I include a few cool cookbooks. So if you already know what her favorite county’s food is, head over to my destinations page, click on that country and you will find a list of cookbooks in the article.

Alternatively, you can pick one of the following cookbooks that simply include dishes from all around the globe.

Best  travel gifts for women – small budgets

#38 Travel-sized razor

Travel-sized razor

A travel-sized razor is a great gift for her if you are looking for something small and practical.

#39 Travel clothes

Fun shirt for women

This t-shirt is a simple yet practical gift for women who travel. Every traveler needs to bring clothes on a trip (yes even nudist travelers), so clothing is a super safe, yet fun gift.

#40 Vintage travel poster

Vintage travel poster

Travel-related posters or wall art are great travel gifts for her. For example, these vintage travel posters, but check out Amazon or Etsy for more inspiration.

#41 Travel-sized games

Travel-sized Rummy

I’m a huge game lover myself (and by game, I mean card or board games, not online games), so I guess that’s why I consider travel-sized games one of the best travel gifts for women.

Some games you can think of are:

#42 Vacation fund piggy bank

Vacation fund box

I already told you that traveling is an expensive hobby, so piggy banks to help save for the next holiday are great travel gifts for her.

Check out Amazon for all the different adventure fund boxes, or go for this wooden vacation fund, or check out this suitcase box on Uncommon Goods.

#43 Electronic organizer bag

Fashionable electronic organizer bag

Even though traveling may often involve going back to the basics, most travelers these days can’t travel without electronics. (Which is why I dedicated an entire post to find the best tech gifts for travelers).

But with all these cables and electronic devices, things may sometimes get messy. And for that, the technology organizer bag was invented. I quite like this cute pink one, but I can imagine that pink is not loved by every woman, so check out Amazon or Uncommon Goods for more cool options!

#44 Passport cover

Passport covers are not the most unique travel gifts for her. However, they are perfect small, practical, and affordable gifts. Plus you can turn it into a super personal and sweet gift, buy picking one of the personalized passport covers!

#45 Toiletery bags

Toiletry bag

Just as the passport covers, toiletry bags are not really one of the most unique travel gifts for her either. However, Personalization Mall offers a lot of cute personalized toiletry bags to upgrade your gift!

#46 Sleeping masks

Sleeping mask

Since I am on fire with the not-so-unique travel gifts for her, here’s another one; sleeping masks.

And I think you can already guess how to pimp this gift into something better.

Yep, that’s right.

Get a personalized sleeping mask.

#47 Personalized vouchers

Personalized vouchers

I think by now you get the point that I am really into personalized gifts. If not, now you know 😉

You can use these vouchers to literally give anything, but here are some ideas:

  • A nigth in a hotel
  • A ticket to a concert/museum/entertainment park/movie/anything they like
  • A dinner a restaurant fo their choice
  • A massage
  • A favor from you without any questions asked
  • A ride to the airport from you

#48 Tote bags

If you have checked more articles on my website, you’ll know how much I love adding tote bags to my lists. They just make great travel gifts for women and men alike. I love the fact that you can find designs for literally any theme, so there’s a tote bag for every recipient.

For now, I picked this “let’s go” tote bag by Red Bubble, but check out Red Bubble to find a design you like. Zazzle is also a great website to find cool tote bags.

#49 Travel-themed adult coloring book

Travel coloring book

Coloring books are awesome relaxing travel gifts for women, especially if they are related to travel, such as this Lonely Planet’s travel coloring book!

Globe necklace

Jewelry always makes great gifts, so it had to be included on a list of the best travel gifts for her. But of course, the jewelry has to relate to travel in some way or another, such as this cute globe necklace.

Other alternatives include:

#51 Travel towel

Blue towel

For those of you who are asking yourselves

“What in fox sake is a travel towel?”

It’s a small microfiber towel, that dries way faster than a regular towel and weighs about a tenth of a regular towel. In order words, it’s the perfect towel for people who don’t have a lot of space in their bags.

Mountain Warehouse is a great brand for travel and outdoor products, so check out their travel towels, or if you prefer to buy on Amazon, there are plenty of options too.

#52 Small travel gifts for women: keyrings

Cute keyring

Keyrings are perfect small gifts for women who travel. Check out Amazon for different designs, or just pick this sweet one with an airplane.

And guess what?

You can also get personalized keyrings, for example with a photo or a sweet or funny message.

#53 More small travel gifts for her: luggage tags

Cute luggage tag

I know luggage tags may not be the most unique travel gifts for her, but at least they are practical, and if you pick the right one, cute, sweet, and personal.

Check out Amazon to find tons of different designs, such as the one I picked for the image.

#54 Travel journal

Travel journal

If you are looking for unique travel gifts for her, this travel journal might not be the gift you are looking for. I am not going to lie to you. I love travel journals, and I know most travelers do too. That’s why I wrote an entire post collecting the 25 best travel journals. But however practical they may be, they are not super unique. She will still love it though.
