Best Travel Gifts For Her

1. Infinity Scarf with Hidden Pocket

The first item on this list of travel gift ideas is 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. There are so many patterns to choose from!

3. Map Necklace

One of my best friends, whom I met studying abroad in Costa Rica over ten 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.

This would make the perfect travel gift for a close friend you met while traveling!

4. Travel Hair Dryer

No travel gift guide would be complete without this useful but often overlooked travel tool. 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!

These three reasons mean you can use it in Asia, Europe, the US, Latin America, and more. One-stop-shop and done.

Read our post where we compare several different brands of dual voltage hair dryers for you.

5. FlipBelt (Money Belt)

FlipBelt Money Belt

I love this FlipBelt because of its slim, non-bulky design. You can 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 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 skirts around the world.

Buy from Mountain Hardwear, Backcountry, 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 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. Solid perfumes 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 you can use with your iPhone (or Android phone). 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 sightseeing, 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.

Alternatively, Anker makes a portable charger that will charge your phone several times a day – for girls who like to document everything while they travel. It’s only slightly larger, so will still fit in a small purse or bag.

Ensure 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.

I’m sure they would appreciate some practical travel gear such as:

As a last resort, you can never go wrong with a gift card to REI, Apple, iTunes, or their favorite store where they can get whatever fun travel gifts their heart desires.
