Does your favorite girl love to travel? As a full-time female traveler myself, I’ll be the first to say that your girlfriend, fiancee or wife will adore any of the gifts for her travel listed here.

Not only will these curated presents be completely practical for her travel, but they will also be fun, unexpected travel gifts for her of all price ranges that the lucky receiver wouldn’t splurge on for herself.
Without further ado, here are the best gifts for her this year: travel edition.
1. Kodak Wireless Mobile Printer
This pocket-size printer connects to her smartphone via bluetooth, allowing her to print a polaroid-size photo from her phone’s camera roll from anywhere in the world in seconds. I have one and love it.
2. Personalized Push-Pin Destination Map
A map to record travels is truly a travel gift for her that keeps on giving.
This personalized engraved push-pin destination map comes with color-coordinated pins for places she has traveled, places she plans to travel, her favorite destinations and her dream destinations.
Hopefully, one day, she’ll need extra red pins for places she has visited too. I bought these exact extra red push pins for my destination map (the same map as above), and they match surprisingly well.
3. Carry-On Cocktail Kit
No more need for overpriced airport bars or questionable in-flight mixed drinks.
Although she’s legally not allowed to bring her own alcohol through security and onto the plane, she can use the mix inside this TSA-approved carry-on cocktail kit with a simple drink from the onboard services to make a delicious cocktail (or mocktail).
Plus, it’s available in various cocktail flavors.
4. Classic Picnic Basket Or Picnic Backpack
If your girl loves any Instagram-worthy, aesthetic, romantic moment she can get her hands on, she will love this white picnic basket for two. I have a white picnic basket just like this one, and it looks fabulous in photos.
For bonus points, surprise her with an entire romantic picnic — wine, cheese, cucumber sandwiches, the whole nine yards.
5. Insulated Picnic Backpack
Alternatively, if she would get more use out of an adventurous, practical yet still photogenic picnic gift, you’ll definitely want to gift her this insulated picnic backpack.
We have an insulated picnic backpack, and, surprisingly, we use it all the time. It’s perfect for hiking, day trips, theme park days and even long distance flights.
6. Perfume And Refillable Travel-Size Perfume Bottles
As you probably know, perfume is a classic couples gift, but don’t forget to add these carry-on-size refillable perfume bottles.
These refillable travel-size perfume bottles are super affordable, easy to use, very high quality, and perfect for when your girl can’t bring her favorite full-size perfumes or colognes through security.
Bonus friend points for adding a new perfume or cologne to her gift!
My signature perfume that I wear daily is the YSL Mon Paris. This scent is perfect for the traveler who prefers a sassy perfume over a flowery or musky one. I love it so much that I even wore it for my wedding day.
7. Fjallraven Kanken Backpack
In addition, these Fjallraven Kanken backpacks are built with the traveler in mind. The whole Fjallraven brand revolves around the outdoors, hiking and adventuring.
I have several Fjallraven Kanken backpacks, and I use them on nearly all of my trips. The stitching is strong, the handles are durable, and the backpacks can hold an impressive amount of belongings.
Plus, these backpacks are super trendy in the travel community right now.
8. Lululemon Wunderlust Belt Bag
Otherwise, you could give your traveling girl this famous Lululemon Wunderlust Belt Bag.
Sister to the envied (and frequently sold-out) Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag, the Lululemon Wanderlust Belt Bag offers the same practicality as the Everywhere Bag, with the avid traveler in mind.
The material is water repellant, designed for movement, and the bag is larger than the Everywhere Belt Bag so she can fit all her women’s travel essentials.
9. Bose Wireless Noise-Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones
Not only do these Bose headphones serve as top-of-the-line wireless headphones for music and other audio, but they will also cancel out all of the neighboring chatty airline passengers, crying babies and loud airplane engine noises she hears while flying.
In fact, Bose is so reputable that it’s the brand of headphones that most airplane pilots use (my pilot family included).
10. Apple Airpods
Or, if your traveling girlfriend, fiancee or wife would prefer a more portable headphone option, updated Apple AirPods are a fantastic go-to.
Their wireless earbud and charging case technology make for smaller, travel-friendly headphones without losing audio quality.
11. Refillable Leather Journal
Next on the list: a travel-y refillable leather journal to record all of her incredible adventures.
Notably (pun intended), this refillable leather journal comes with a protective travel bag and a pen to match.
12. Thoughtful Travel Jewelry (Gifts For Her Travel)
You can always win over your girl’s heart with jewelry.
I love that this affordable gold plated compass necklace is a subtle piece she can wear every single day. Gold necklaces are very popular right now, so it will blend really well with her other everyday jewelry.
And, it will act as her sweet, romantic reminder of you on her travels.
13. Jewelry Travel Case
This mini travel jewelry box is compact, which is perfect for packing, has multiple ring and earring compartments, and has hooks to keep necklaces detangled.
Furthermore, this larger travel jewelry box holds even more jewelry than the compact size, while simultaneously laying flat in suitcases.
14. ‘Our Adventure Book’ Travel Scrapbook (Gifts For Her Travel)
If you’re looking for personal, easy DIY travel gifts for her, a travel photo book would be a fantastic option.
Print out your favorite travel photos with her, grab a glue stick and create a keepsake scrapbook she can enjoy for years to come
15. Customized City Map Wall Art
Choose the city in which your relationship started, your hometowns and/or your favorite travel destinations, and create the perfect personalized home decor.
16. Handheld Rechargeable Fan With Lanyard (Gifts For Her Travel)
Many girls who travel love hot destinations but hate the heat.
This handheld rechargeable fan will make a comical yet totally practical gift for the female traveler that fits this description.
I just ordered this exact fan for our upcoming trip to Florida, and I could not recommend the fan enough. I love that it has three strong fan settings, a lanyard to keep your hands free, a tilting feature for when you’re sitting at a table or laying out on the beach, and it’s rechargeable.
17. Apple Watch
Do you know what makes this new Apple Watch an ideal gift for her travel? The GPS.
Wearing an Apple Watch while traveling will enable her to explore quickly via GPS without looking lost.
A woman who looks lost is putting herself in danger. Not many people realize that aimlessly looking around for street signs and addresses can cue perpetrators to make their move and “help.”
This Apple Watch is useful for hundreds of reasons, but safety is one perk most people don’t realize.
18. Faux Cashmere Blanket Scarf (Gifts For Her Travel)
Moreover, blanket scarves are fashionable, can be styled casually, dressy and professionally, and double as a blanket on cold flights. They make one of the best low-priced travel gifts for her.
I love that this particular faux cashmere scarf comes in beige, as it will match every girl’s unique style.
Unfortunately, I had to retire my cashmere scarf after I discovered my wool allergy the hard way. However, I absolutely loved my extremely soft, luxurious faux cashmere scarf (just like this one) pre-discovery. I miss it!
19. Homesick Candle
The candle brand Homesick has curated hundreds of different location-inspired scents — from New York City, to Colorado, to France — so that you can easily find the perfect candle for your traveling girl.
Home puts the “sweet” in the bittersweet part of leaving a vacation. Remind her of her own warm bed, hometown familiarities and, of course, you.
20. Beis Work Tote (Gifts For Her Travel)
The Beis work tote (click here for $15 off) is the best personal-item-sized bag I have ever traveled with. The material is strong and tear-resistant, there numerous pockets and build-ins to keep belongings organized (including a padded laptop compartment and key leash), and there’s a luggage handle sleeve to stay hands-free in the airport.
This truly is the ultimate travel bag. I have both the full-size and mini versions in the cognac croc color.
