10 Gifts Every Female Traveler Wants

Let’s face it, ladies: There are some awesome travel-inspired gadgets out there that we just can’t wait to get our hands-on. Innovative, useful, fun, or simply pretty, the gifts on this list are those we could ALL use. So, either have fun shopping, or share this with your family, friends, or perhaps your honey before Valentine’s Day, your birthday, Christmas, anniversary, or a random Tuesday (we all know we don’t need an excuse).

Happy travels!

1. Infinity Scarf with Hidden Pocket

Fashionable AND so useful at the same time. An infinity scarf with a hidden zipper pocket not only prevents pick-pockets but also allows you to go hands-free or purse-free. Genius.

The scarves by Waypoint Goods come in so many colors and designs there’s a style for everyone.

2. Scarf Camera Strap

Not only are camera straps uncomfortable in the first place, but they also usually have rubber on one side that pulls hair with every movement. What a brilliant idea this is to combine fashion and utility to create a camera strap we actually WANT to wear.

3. Map Necklace

One of my best friends, whom I met studying abroad in Costa Rica over 10 years ago, gifted me one of these with the country of Costa Rica in it. I LOVE it. I don’t normally wear jewelry but this is more than jewelry for me; it represents a year’s worth of memories of studying abroad and makes me think of my friend whenever I wear it.

4. Travel Hair Dryer

This specific style of hair dryer is the best travel hair dryer out there for three reasons:

  1. It folds up (great for packing)
  2. It comes with a concentrator accessory
  3. This one is the kicker: it has dual voltage!

This means you can use it in Asia, Europe, the US, Latin America and more. One-stop-shop and done.

5. FlipBelt (Money Belt)

FlipBelt Money Belt

I love this FlipBelt because of it’s slim, non-bulky design. You can literally run with this belt and forget it’s there.

It has four pockets all around it for you to store your phone, keys, money, credit cards, etc., and then you flip it inside out and it essentially locks the pockets by putting them up against your skin.

It is unnoticeable under the right tops and offers the opportunity to go hands-free or purse-free. No more fanny pack, no more awkward zipper/buckle money belts (not like we wear those – ahem).

6. Running Skort

Running Skorts

I own two of these babies and wear them constantly when I travel to warm destinations. The ones I use have hidden pockets (make sure to get a style with hidden pockets) for keys, credit cards, even phones. They are moisture-wicking, which means they are perfect for any sort of athletic activity. Yet they are also skirts that can easily be dressed up if need be!

I will never travel to warm destinations without my running skorts, and I highly recommend you try them out. Read my full review – and see photos of me wearing my travel skirt around the world.

Buy from Mountain Hardwear or REI

7. Scratch-Off World Map

Scratch-Off World Map

It is such a fun project to scratch off each country as you make your way around the world. This beauty comes in two sizes and I definitely recommend the bigger one. I have the small one, which I love, but I’d prefer it if it were bigger on my wall. It sits in a frame made of reclaimed wood (without the glass) and it’s a beautiful addition to my wall art.

8. Solid Perfume

Next time you carry on only, try a solid perfume instead of a bottle of pesky liquid. They are growing in popularity (so there are many scents to choose from) and they travel so easily! Rub it on your pulse points and smell delicious.

9. Selfie Stick

A GoPro selfie stick is a perfect gift for adventurous travelers. Snap selfies on the go whether you’re walking the streets, on a bike tour in Austria, or riding the waves on a surfboard.

If you (or your gift recipient) are not a GoPro user, get a selfie stick that can be used with your iPhone (or Android phones). This one is great because it’s light and compact, and it has Bluetooth capabilities.

10. Portable USB Charger

Portable USB Charger

If you’re going to be out all day sight-seeing, make sure your electronics don’t die with this portable USB charger. I own two of these, and each one can fully charge my phone at least once.

Make sure to have the right cords for your electronics or an all-in-one USB cord like the one pictured here. It’s an amazing thing to be able to charge your phone right in your purse.
