BEST TRAVEL GIFTS FOR HER

1. PACSAFE STYLESAFE ANTI-THEFT CROSS-BODY PURSE

Pacsafe handbag

This little beauty has been my constant companion since we started travelling full-time almost four years ago. With all of its anti-theft functions, it takes all the worry out of walking around busy tourist areas. It’s big enough for my iPhone, phone charger, passports, wallet and a few other bits and pieces.

It has slashguard material, Turn and Lock-zip security and an in-built RFID to protect credit cards and passport IDs from scam scanners.

It wipes clean and even though I’ve used it almost every day it is still in great condition. It’s the one item I wouldn’t have been without.  I have the black one but it also comes in mocha and navy 

This is the perfect travel gift for someone who will be visiting crowded cities and needs that extra security on their handbag.

3. WOMEN’S WALLET

This soft leather purse is RFID SAFE and is a much better option than using paper RFID wallets which can be a real pain trying to get your credit card out of each time you use it. Therefore a wallet like this is perfect for anyone who loves to travel.

This handy travel wallet not only comes in blue but also in black, red, burgundy, teal, purple, grey and brown.

7. TRAVEL JOURNAL

I was given a travel journal as a gift before leaving on our adventure and it made it that little bit extra special every time I used it.

My favourite pick is this Travel Journal, Do more of what makes you happy . But there are so many designs to choose from on Amazon, including beautiful leather travel journals.

You could think about adding some coloured journal pens to help make journal writing more fun. A great easy travel gift.

This Travel wallet is a little larger so it can hold a passport and has a wrist strap, which is useful for using the wallet as a clutch. With RFID blocking this stylish  Travel Document Organiser is a great travel companion for travel lovers. Check out its other colours here.

9. LIGHTWEIGHT INFINITY NECK SCARF  – W/ZIPPER POCKET

Having a lightweight scarf has been really handy on our travels. It can be used to keep out the chill, dress up a plain t-shirt, and can be popped over your head when visiting religious places.

This infinity scarf has the added bonus of a zip pocket for storing a credit card or any other light belongings, such as lipstick. It’s great for hiding credit cards and IDs while travelling.

There are various styles and colours, to choose from –  I’d avoid a black one with a white zip though because that’s not really a hidden zip!

🎁 BUY On Amazon HERE


10. HANGING TOILETRY BAG – LARGE COSMETIC MAKEUP TRAVEL ORGANIZER 

.

Having a place for all of your toiletries is a must while travelling, and after having been in so many showers that don’t have a bench to put your things on — just a hook on the door  —then this hangable toiletry bag comes in really handy.

I have this actual one and love it.

This is a great travel gift for someone who will be travelling in a motorhome, campervan or camping.

🎁 BUY On Amazon HERE


11. PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER

I’m a sucker for anything pink and this travel phone charger fits in your purse just like lipstick. It’s both a pretty and useful travel gift.

Having a portable phone charger while travelling is super handy — especially if you are also using your phone as a camera or using GPS because the battery runs down much quicker.

There are plenty of options, I realise not everyone likes pink:)

🎁 BUY On Amazon HERE


12. THE BEST WOMEN’S TRAVEL WRITING

I absolutely loved this book, The Best Women’s Travel Writing, Volume 12: True Stories from Around the World which is the latest collection in the best-selling, award-winning series that invites you into the stories and lives of intrepid female nomads as they wander the globe discovering new places, faces, and facets of themselves.

USEFUL & UNIQUE TRAVEL GIFTS

19. BUY A TINGGLY ULTIMATE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

Now, if there is one gift that is a no-brainer for a travel lover is the gift of an ‘experience’ rather than ‘things’. I definitely get the ‘travel tingle’ when I look through all the amazing options available.

Give the gift of the ‘travel bug’  showing your travel lover all the possibilities open to them. In addition to a wide variety of worldwide experiences to choose from, there is no limiting time frame and each purchase goes towards offsetting CO2 and removing toxic plastics from the environment.

This is the perfect travel gift offering travel excitement and experiences. Some of the Tinggly Gift Boxes include:

  • Experience the World Collection-
  • Merry Christmas  Collection-
  • Bucket List Collection

20. KINDLE PAPERWHITE, WATERPROOF SIGNATURE EDITION

When travelling you need as much space-saving as possible. Up until recently, I was reading books on our Ipad but it was always difficult to read outside, so I am loving my paperwhite kindle which is easy to read outdoors and has the added bonus of being waterproof.

This version comes with a wireless charging unit and leather cover.

Give this great travel gift of easy reading to your travel lover and they’ll think of you every time they open it.

🎁 Buy this great Kindle on Amazon here


21. SUBSCRIPTION TO KINDLE UNLIMITED … OR AUDIBLE

Why not gift a subscription to Kindle unlimited? You can cancel the subscription at any time, so it’s really worth signing up for at least the first month free.

Another great gift idea for a traveller is Audible. Whether on a road trip, a long flight or backpacking, being able to listen to a book while on the move is an added bonus. This comes with a free one-month trial too.


22. WHO KNOWS WHERE

This is one of our favourite games. This brilliant, award-winning board game has over 1000 questions in 5 categories, including capitals, major cities and towns, events and facts, famous tourist sites and beautiful images of iconic landmarks.

Everyone plays at the same time, so no hanging around waiting for your turn. Where in the World is an educational and fun game perfect for travel lovers.

23. TRAVEL PILLOW  

This travel pillow is a little different to the standard as it is a Twist, Memory Foam Travel Pillow.

It provides head, chin and neck support and is particularly great for long travels. 

It comes with earplugs, a sleep mask and a travel bag. The cover is machine washable for a fresh experience every time.

🎁 Buy this on Amazon here


24. SONY WH-1000XM4 NOISE CANCELLING WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones with Mic, 30 Hours Battery Life, Quick Charge, and ALEXA voice control.

Noise-cancelling earphones definitely make a flight more comfortable and with 30 hours of battery life, these will last most long-distance flights.

This extra-large microfiber towel is lightweight, compact and soft. The perfect travel towel for beach, camping or travelling light.

As Antoine de St. Exupery said,  

‘He who would travel happily must travel light.” 

🎁 Buy on Amazon here


28. 8-PCS LUGGAGE PACKING  CUBES 

 These lightweight premium upgraded nylon fabric packing cases are just fantastic. They are hard wearing and the mesh part enables you to see the clothes that are inside. You can pack all the same types of clothes together and saves heaps of time rather than rummaging around in your suitcase to find something. I just love these and am really happy with this brand. 

They are an invaluable part of our travel accessories and would make a handy practical travel gift. 

They come in assorted colours too. We recommend getting different colours for each person to differentiate packing. 

🎁 Buy on Amazon here


29. ANTI-THEFT BACKPACK 

Pacsafe bag

This anti-theft backpack has been another lifesaver whilst we have travelled across Europe. It has anti-slash mesh material and a metal mesh lockable pulley cord. This both closes the bag and can also be locked to something to prevent grab and run.

In the campervan, we attached it to the table and locked all our laptops etc. inside. It would make things very difficult for any opportunistic thieves and it really puts safety at the top of the agenda.

🎁 Buy This invaluable Backpack From PACSAFE here


30. BENRO 3XS LITE SMARTPHONE STABILIZER GIMBAL

Our Benro Gimbal has been fantastic. The quality of the videos that we take is now so much better without all the jolting around. 

The collapsable arm means it’s easy to store and it has the added bonus of being used as a tripod if necessary. 

It’s also easy to change from portrait to landscape mode at a touch of a button and to zoom in and out as well as pan around. 

Another great gift idea for a traveller – especially if they are going to be taking videos with their smartphone. 

🎁 Buy on Amazon here


31. ANCESTRY DNA KIT

One more idea for an unusual and unique gift is to buy an Ancestry DNA Testing Kit – this is ideal for those of us who are travellers who aren’t at home to buy presents. The kit can be sent directly to the recipient as a gift. How cool would it be to find out where in the world all your ancestors have come from?

🎁 Buy on Amazon here


32. DIGITAL LUGGAGE SCALE 

One of our main concerns each time we take a flight is whether we will be over on our luggage allowance. It’s also not ideal when you are checking in and trying to juggle weights between your bags or deciding which items you can get rid of so you don’t have to pay any astronomical excess baggage fees.

This small and lightweight digital scale is just perfect for popping into your bag and is great for taking the stress out of possible excess baggage fees. This is another really practical and handy travel gift.

🎁 Buy Luggage Scales on Amazon here


33. PORTABLE PHONE CHARGER

There is nothing more annoying than not being able to capture a stunning shot or being stranded without directions because your phone battery has died. Therefore, this item is a necessity for convenience and safety when travelling. This Bonai Power Bank is powerful, and light with high-speed charging technology.

🎁 Buy Luggage Scales on Amazon here


 34. TRAVEL ADAPTER PLUG

Having an International travel adapter with USB charging ports is super handy because sometimes you only have one power outlet and with laptops, iPhones and iPads to charge it can be quite a juggle.

This adapter is great for worldwide travel.

🎁 Buy on Amazon here


35. CABLE ORGANIZER BAG – FOR HARD DRIVES, CABLES, CHARGER 

Travelling with laptops, iPhones, cameras, iPad, portable phone chargers, hard drives etc. means we have a lot of cables that tended to get jumbled up and lost in the bottom of our bags – until we bought this cable organiser.

It saves so much time because we’re not searching around in every little nook and cranny trying to find the right cable. It also comes in five different colours. 

🎁 Buy on Amazon here
