The Ultimate Travel Gift Guide for Women

Travel Gift Guide for Women


Updated: December 2, 2019

It can be tricky to find the perfect gift for a well-traveled woman. Whether it’s your friend, sister, girlfriend, wife, mother, or other the goal is give her something she’ll be able to take with her to make her trip more enjoyable. But how do you separate the useful from the useless, the innovative from the overdone?

I’ve combed through tons of products and rounded up some of my own favourite items from the past year, as well as things that will be on my own Christmas list this year, to create my travel gift guide for well-travelled women.

It looks a bit like a neck brace but the Trtl travel pillow is a real game changer. It’s lighter and takes up less space than a traditional pillow and let me sleep, even in an aisle seat when I’m normally a window leaner.

Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle

A water bottle is something that’s handy when travelling, but it can be bulky to pack. A collapsible water bottle takes up little space when you don’t need it and has a 22oz capacity for when you do.
