We all know her… the free spirit, the wild one, the traveller woman. Whether it’s you, your girlfriend, sister, mother or friend, we all know a woman with insatiable wanderlust.
And when it comes to choosing a gift, it can be tricky to find something that will be both practical and still have sentimental value.
Travel gifts for women may not be as hard to find as you first think, at least not with my guide.
I’ve gone on some pretty cool adventures, and there have been certain items that have made these travels even more enjoyable for me (being a woman myself, I kind of know what I’m talking about here).
But when it comes to gifts, I will share with you some amazing gift ideas for the beloved female traveller(s) in your life.
Here is a list of the many wonderful gifts for travelling women that you can give as a present for birthdays, special occasions or even for this festive season.
Useful gifts for the travelling woman
These are some awesome items that will help make travelling more convenient for women.
The power of pure, drinkable water should never be underestimated. And when you’re hiking, travelling to foreign countries and visiting desert terrains, a nice water bottle will be your best friend.
This is the ideal gift for a woman who is active, who loves escapes to hot destinations, or who is a bit more environmentally conscious. Think of all the plastic you’re saving by refilling your own water bottle!
I like these stainless steel water bottle also because, besides coming in a variety of funky colours, they keep my water cold for up to 24 hours.
This is a must-have for every traveller, and especially for women who need proper neck support. There’s nothing worse than a stiff neck and back during your travels.
This cosy travel pillow will be a thoughtful addition to the woman in your life’s bag of essentials.
I used to laugh at people who used travel pillows because I thought they looked ridiculous, but today, I’m a proud owner of a Trtl travel pillow.
While it may still look ridiculous, I’ve lost count of the number of planes, trains and bus rides that I’ve used it in, and successfully been able to sleep all throughout the journey, waking up without any neck pain.
Every lady needs her beauty sleep, but sometimes that can be hard when you’ve just arrived in a country with severe jet lag. It can also be challenging when you’re on a plane or if you need to take a snooze during the daylight hours.
One way to ensure your lady can have all the slumber she needs is to get her a contoured sleeping mask. This is the kind of gift that will go such a long way!
When looking for a practical gift for a traveller woman, packing cubes make for one of the best ideas. These incredible creations allow for organised packing, allowing every woman to compartmentalise her luggage.
Packing cubes are fantastic and easy to use, and they make the process of packing your bag so much simpler.
This means no more searching through her bag for what she needs, and no more stressing about how to pack her belongings. This is one of the most useful gift ideas for travellers.
Unfortunately, pickpocketing is a reality when travelling. That’s why having anti-theft bags is so important. Knowing your money and valuables are safe adds peace of mind to every travel experience.
Gift your favourite lady a discreet and sleek anti-theft bra stash so she can go on her adventures without any hassles.
You clip these to your bra so that it remains hidden under your t-shirt, away from where anywhere can see them and reach them.
Unique travel gifts for her
These are some gifts that are not only useful but also super unique in their designs.
Continuing on the useful and safety trend, why not get your travelling friend a scarf with secret pocket and zipper? Scarves are versatile and stylish, and you can get them in many different colours.
What could possibly make them any more beautiful? Well, how about a secret pocket? The Women’s Infinity Scarves are both fashion-conscious and convenient.
They have a zipper pocket for your lady to put things in like her passport or cash, the pockets are slightly bigger than the bra wallet and it can also be a fashionable element.
This is one of the most clever items on this list of great travel gifts for her.
If you’ve ever been brave enough to see the inside of a woman’s on-hand travel bag, then you know just how chaotic having lots of toiletries scattered around can be.
Help her keep everything organised and within reach with a sassy hanging travel toiletry bag. This is one of the best gifts for a traveller woman.
Best luxury travel gifts for her
These are items that may cost a bit extra but make for a delightful way to spoil any travelling woman.
When thinking of luxury gift ideas for the travelling woman, jewellery might pop to mind. However, don’t just get her a beautiful necklace or pair of earrings, get her something that can help her keep track of her travels.
A sterling silver Pandora bracelet is stunning, and it is made to carry unique charms that can be added on as tokens of each country she visits. It is one of those really cute travel gifts that you can give to someone close.
A travel jacket is both a practical and luxurious gift to give a travelling woman. Not only is it a great way to stay comfortable and warm, but it also gives you plenty of space to pack your belongings with you.
This is one of the best gifts for female travellers, and it will be a welcome companion when visiting colder countries or cities.
Last, but definitely not least on my list of travel gift ideas for her, is a waterproof travel bag. She will love you forever for giving her something that will keep all her clothes and electronics safe when travelling in the rain.
The first time I went to Thailand during the rainy season I got caught up in a storm during a longtail boat excursion, and my waterproof backpack is the only thing that saved my then new DSLR camera from being washed by the Thai rain and sea.
I can’t recommend them more.
