Top 11 Best Travel Gifts for Women

This post is all about the best travel gifts for women.

If you’re trying to find the perfect gift for the traveler in your life, look no further! These unique travel gifts are great to give for birthdays or holidays.

Some of the gift ideas on this list are practical items that can be used while they’re on the road, while others are thoughtful touches for a traveler’s home.

Almost all the gifts on this list are under $50, making them affordable for every budget.

1. Travel Scarf

For an extremely practical yet stylish travel gift, look no further than a hidden pocket travel scarf. These scarves are designed to store important things like your passport and cash inside a hidden pocket. They’re also super soft and lightweight, making them comfortable to wear while traveling.

2. Travel Bag

I have been using the same Longchamps Le Pliage bags for over seven years and I love them. I have the smaller purse size and the larger tote bag size. The larger bag is the perfect carry-on travel bag. Longchamps bags are so durable but also stylish and perfect for travelers!

3. Passport Holder

The jetsetter in your life will absolutely love this fun little travel gift! I received this exact “I’m Outta Here” passport holder as a gift and it’s one of my favorite travel accessories. I get so many compliments on it wherever I go and I love bringing it with me when I travel.

4. Scratch Off Map

This scratch-off world map is a unique work of art that is the perfect decor for any adventurous traveler’s home. You scratch off the countries as you visit them, revealing a vibrant watercolor underneath. This is such a cool way to keep a record of your travels around the world.

Another option is this beautiful United States scratch-off map which is the perfect gift for travelers whose goal is to visit all 50 states!

5. Travel Coloring Book

It’s no secret that coloring books are for adults too! Adult coloring books have been proven to be a great way to relax and relieve stress. This ultimate travel coloring book from Lonely Planet is the perfect gift for any travel lover. Throw in a set of colored pencils and this is a great travel gift idea!

6. Portable Charger

A portable charger is an extremely practical gift idea for travelers. For me, a portable charger is a must-have travel essential. I don’t go anywhere without one and it’s always a lifesaver.

7. Travel Adapter

Another extremely practical gift that will be useful for international travelers is a travel adapter. This one is compatible with outlets in 150+ countries, comes with an outlet and two USB ports, and has a handy carrying case so you can pack it up when you travel.

8. Nice Luggage

If the traveler in your life needs some new luggage, this is a great gift you can give they are sure to appreciate! A nice suitcase like this one from American Tourister is a good choice. I’ve been traveling with a suitcase from American Tourister (not this exact style) for close to five years now and I’ve found it to be really durable. They’re also affordable while still looking stylish.

9. Travel Journal

This travel journal/planner combo is great for the super organized traveler. Not only does it include journal pages to document your trip, there are also planning pages for keeping track of your itinerary, accommodation, transportation, budget, etc. Plus it has a gorgeous design and is small and lightweight enough that you can easily carry it around on your travels.

10. Travel Toiletries Bag

I love this cute hanging travel toiletries bag for women. It’s so compact, making it great for traveling, yet it holds a lot. And the hanging style is perfect for staying in hotels.

11. RYDIR Band

The RYDIR Band is a genius gift idea for the frequent traveler in your life! It’s a stretchy compression band that slides over the handle of your suitcase to secure your bag to the top. This way you don’t have to worry about it sliding off your suitcase while in transit! This is the perfect practical gift for any female traveler that will make traveling so much easier.


I hope these ideas for the best travel gifts for women helped you find the perfect gift!
