Finding the perfect gift for the women in your life can be hard. So we asked the experts: our TravelingMoms. These are the things we never leave home without. (OK. Some of them are the gift ideas we put on their own wish lists this year. I’m looking at you, girlfriends getaway without the kids!) Go ahead and forward this to the person who is buying for you. We won’t tell.
Best Travel Gifts for Women Under $20
Long gone are the days when mom is stuck on the sidelines holding the phones or taking the photos! With this Waterproof Phone Pouch, she can be front and center for the fun while still having the opportunity to capture memories with her phone. This waterproof phone pouch is perfect for a day at the waterpark, kayaking or any adventure where her phone needs to stay protected and hands-free. Makes a great stocking stuffer!
We love, love, love, these packing cubes! They make packing so easy, especially with kids. We can pack more into each travel bag and suitcase and unpacking in the hotel room is easy — simply slip the packing cube into the drawer. Our TravelingMoms recommend buying different colored cubes for everyone in the family, so it’s easy for the kids to identify their stuff. (We like the zebra-stiped bags!)
This is the year to give (maybe to yourself!) an in-car USB Humidifier Air Purifier. We’ve all road tripped with kids. We KNOW what the car smells like during a long road trip. This air purifier is the answer. And when the kids get antsy and you’re ready to threaten to “turn this car around,” you can instead pop in a nice, soothing lavender scent to calm the masses.
We love how simple, sleek and functional this wallet is and we love that it has an RFID blocking bifold to protect personal information and credit cards and a zipper pocket.
We TravelingMoms haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list! This unique gift is a fun way for any frequent traveler to keep up with where they’ve been and where they want to go next. Right now, it’s the stuff that dreams are made of! If she isn’t already a world traveler this will motivate her.
This passport cover will go everywhere with her. Frequent travelers love the stories that their passports tell. That’s why we think this is such a great gift idea!

We love this airplane necklace because it’s a beautiful and practical way to celebrate her love of travel! Pick one up for yourself, your friend or that special wanderer in your life.
One of my favorite travel accessories is my foldable wide brim hat. I keep it in my purse or backpack and have it ready at all times for a day at the beach or shopping downtown.
Turn your favorite memories into a beautiful handcrafted gift with this Personalized Heart Map Print. This custom-made gift can showcase your favorite vacation memories, home locations or even bucket-list destinations.
Help her keep the things she cares about safe while traveling or spending the day at the beach. Keys, wallets and air pods can all get locked away in safety with this portable lockbox safe. Anyone who has had important items stolen while traveling knows that this gift is one that keeps on giving.
The BlendJet 2 Portable Travel Blender is perfect for making your favorite smoothies, shakes or margaritas on the go! With the push of a button, her favorite beverage will be blended to perfection and ready to drink straight from the jar (no extra dishes necessary).

I remember a group trip that included a British woman who spent her afternoons painting watercolor pictures of the Galapagos Islands in a beautiful travel journal. I can’t paint, but I can write and I love recording my trip highlights in travel journals. I still sometimes wistfully re-read my journal from my first big international trip — a five-week journey around Australia.
This fun cocktail kit is perfect for her next flight. It has everything she needs (minus the alcohol) to make her favorite drink on the plane. Choose her favorite–Moscow Mule, Margarita, Bloody Mary or even an Old Fashioned! In case she doesn’t have a flight booked soon, give her the bottle of booze, too. That way she can make the cocktail at home while she dreams of her next trip.
No matter where I go, I bring along a lightweight travel scarf. It can act as a blanket, roll up into a travel pillow, become a head covering or fashion accessory. This high-quality version even has a hidden pocket at the back of the neck for inserting hand warmers to keep her warm on that frigid plane ride or on a long road trip. It’s super soft and machine washable! A great travel accessory for anyone.
My 24-year-old daughter loves this one! She uses it every day at home and always takes it on the road with her. It’s one of her travel essentials. The Lay-n-Go Cosmo Bag’s brilliant design lets her see all of her cosmetics and skincare essentials and clean up with the pull of a drawstring. This toiletry bag rolls up for packing then flattens to a 20” diameter circle that makes it easy to see everything inside. To sweeten the deal, this makeup bag’s collapsible pouch design is machine washable for those inevitable product spills and powder breaks.
No matter where she goes, you love her to the moon and back. This is a great gift that will remind her of that.
Have you seen these inflatable travel foot rest pillows? What a brilliant travel gift idea! It should become a best seller! It can be used to take a load off and to rest feet and legs while on a train, bus or airplane. Or, my favorite, at the airport during those agonizingly long layovers between flights. Way more useful to travel lovers than a neck pillow.
Gifts for Women Under $100
Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift? She’ll love this fun and decorative Personalized USA Travel Photo Map to showcase her memories of adventure!
We love this Anker Powercore Essential. This portable charger is slim enough to slip into a jeans pants pocket but powerful enough to quick-charge 3 devices at once! Everyone needs a power bank for juice on the go.
Do you have a Disney-lover on your Christmas list? This Grogu Robe is a great choice! It’s made of cozy fleece so she can think of you while she’s snuggled up watching her favorite movie, Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
When you’re staying in a vacation rental or hotel, away from your normal key storage solutions, it’s easy to misplace important items, like your car keys. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve frantically searched for my keys after my kids used them to grab something from our vehicle after we stopped for the night. Tile Mate is a Bluetooth tracker to help you locate anything you don’t want to misplace while traveling. Travel Tip: Attach the Tile Mate to your kid’s backpack, your car keys, your purse and more.

Stay connected to those who are far away with this WiFi Touch Lamp. When either person is thinking of the other, they can simply touch the lamp and the lamp will illuminate at both locations.
I have been using StitchFix for years and always love to receive gift cards for Christmas! Since buying clothes for someone can be difficult, a gift card to StitchFix is a perfect idea. Choose a gift card value from $20-$1000. She can get the style that she loves and even have her stylist curate a new travel wardrobe for her next trip. You can even request specific things geared toward the traveling woman like low wrinkle fabrics.
She needs a durable backpack that can get her through every adventure! This North Face one is great because it can hold a lot and was specifically created for women.
Does she still talk about the food she had while traveling or love to try new foods from around the world? Delight her taste buds with a single gift basket or give her snackable joy month after month with a yearly subscription to Universal Yums.
TravelingMom Founder Kim Orlando raves about these travel shoes. “I can walk for miles (and I do!) with no issue. They wash up perfectly,” she says. Every member of her family has at least one pair. They’re easy to pop off for TSA and comfy enough for a long flight.
This is NOT your typical digital photo frame. What makes this photo frame “special” is that you can send photos to an email address and then those photos will instantly appear on the frame. The Skylight Frame is a great gift for travelers who want to share their adventures with the folks at home. It’s also a lovely gift for a grandma who wants to see updated photos of her grandchildren. What a beautiful way to stay connected with the ones we love and miss the most!

As a TravelingMom, two of my favorite things are my family and the travel memories we create together. Therefore, I can’t think of a more beautiful gift than that of professional photos taken on an annual family vacation or on a once-in-a-lifetime trip! That’s the beauty of Flytographer, you can book a photographer to meet you almost anywhere you plan to go.
Flytographer gift cards are easy to give and the one receiving the gift can control when and where they are used! Photographers are available at over 350 destinations worldwide.
Our TravelingMoms are all about “experiences” over “things.” So when we buy gifts for our travel-loving friends (or make our own gift wish list!), experiences are what we like. Finding the right experience can be a challenge, though. That’s why we were so excited to discover Tinggly’s unique “experience” gift boxes. It’s a gift that lets the receiver choose the experience she covets most.
Tinggly has boxes for travelers who like self-care, food, culture, romance or adventure. We vote for the “bucket list” box. It lets the receiver choose from among 600+ travel experiences around the world — from a hot air balloon ride over Temecula California to a photography tour of New York City’s Central Park to a food tasting tour of Naples, Italy, by vintage Vespa. So, essentially, you’re giving the experience-loving woman in your life a travel gift she can customize to fit her next trip.
If you’re looking for the ultimate gift idea, treat her to an adults-only Sandals Vacation. It’s all-inclusive, so she won’t have to lift a finger and there won’t be any end-of-vacation budget surprises. This resort has everything she needs for the perfect escape from all of her many responsibilities. Due to COVID-19, many of these all-inclusive resorts are have incredible sales making this type of vacation more affordable than ever. Now might be the time to splurge and we know she’s worth it.
