With Christmas right around the corner, I thought I’d share some gift ideas for female travelers this holiday season in case you’re still not quite sure what to get the wanderer in your life. From practical gifts to little bits of luxury, this list has a little something for any female traveler on your list!


Lonely Planet Guidebook

It’s not exactly a secret that traveling requires a huge amount of planning! Getting information from guidebooks will never go out of style, and Lonely Planet is known to be the best in the business. In addition to creating guidebooks for specific destinations, they also have books about the best drives, the best travel for 2019, honeymoon ideas, hikes, train journeys, city guides – basically you name it. I love a guide book for Christmas, but I do tend to leave them at home when I’m away. They’re so good to come home to and read between trips, and I see them as timeless books to keep in your collection forever.

COOLA Suncare essentials

Whether you’re by the pool all day, out in the sun or even in the snow, you need to protect your skin and this travel size suncare kit from COOLA is a life saver. The products are all organic and cruelty-free and smell like a dream! This 4-piece kit includes two SPF 30 sunscreens, one SPF 30 lip balm, and after-sun lotion that will keep you protected in the sun while delivering nourishing, age-fighting vitamins and antioxidants to your skin. That makes for one happy traveler!

Bite Away Pen

This Bite Away Pen might seem like a strange gift but every traveler knows that beautiful and tropical destinations tend to come with bugs and in turn, lot’s of bug bites! Every person who has used it says how life changing it is! It works by using electricity to take the itch out of the bite and then because it doesn’t swell up, it goes away quicker! I know Steph from Steph My Life Travel loves it, her Instagram is full of love for this essential!

Fun Stocking Stuffers from Skinny Dip

Skinny Dip is a really fun company that sells so many travel goodies that you never knew you needed. All their products are cute and covered in beautiful patterns, and also so useful for people on the go. They sell everything from eye masks, passport holders, and beach towels to fun floaties, portable chargers and neck pillows.

Chilly’s Water Bottle

Stainless steel and eco-friendly, this bottle makes a great present and it comes in so many colours and patterns too! Chilly’s water bottles are so beautiful that you’re bound to find one for everyone in your life. If it helps to stop you buying single use plastic water bottles it’s always going to be a good thing too!

The Tangle Teezer

Without a Tangle Teezer in my life, my hair becomes a hot mess. Traveling wreaks havoc on the air (especially when traveling to hot countries) making this hairbrush an essential to combat frizz and tangles in the humidity. It also makes a pretty present as they come in so many different patterns, colours and sizes.

Bando Beach Towel

No matter what country you are in, you always need a towel to travel with. These Bando towels are fun and colourful, capable of brightening up any day. Whether you’re by the beach or the pool for the day, or even just want a nice towel to use after your shower, have a look at Bando for some pretty pieces and fun shapes.

Liz Earle Skincare Pampering Set

Liz Earle is a cruelty-free company that offers the perfect skincare pampering set for travelers seeking a mini spa session or something to brighten up the skin. This set of mini’s makes them perfect for throwing into your carryon for a quick skin rescue after a long-haul flight. It also includes a shampoo and conditioner so you can really treat yourself to a full body pamper.

Urbanears Headphones

As any frequent traveler knows, headphones are a godsend when on the road. They can turn flights into a movie marathon, an overnight train into a concert, and a sleepless night in a noisy hostel into an eight hour rest with ocean sounds playing. I love cordless headphones too as they’re so easy to pop on and never get tangled up in any of your stuff. These Plattan 2 bluetooth ones are also comfy with a built in mic in case you want to make any FaceTime calls home this Christmas 🙂

Happy shopping!!
