Travel becomes so much more enjoyable when you have the right equipment. Packed with very useful travel gifts for women, this selection will give her the items she never knew she needed, but will never want to travel without again. There are pillows hidden inside scarves, socks with zippered compartments, and even a carry-on kit for a celebratory cocktail in the sky, but each one has been designed to make her trips easier.
Matador Pocket Blanket
She’ll have a dry place to sit wherever she goes with Matador’s Pocket Blanket. Water-repellent and puncture-resistant, this blanket folds down to the size of a mobile phone, yet is big enough to seat up to four people. Perfect for hiking or festivals, ground stakes are also included for windy days.
Universal Travel Adapter
People who travel around the world need an unenviable amount of travel adapters to ensure their devices can be charged abroad. This model, however, covers more than 200 countries with 4 USB ports and US/UK/EU/AUS plugs in one handy cube, so she’ll never pack the wrong adapter again.
Portable Travel Garment Steamer
Needing just 70 seconds to heat up, this Lemontec Portable Travel Garment Steamer will take even the most obstinate of creases out of most fabrics, whether that’s a suit for an important meeting or a dress for dinner. Lightweight and with a long cable, it’s ideal for the business traveller.
If she likes to travel light but still take all of her essentials with her, The Weekender duffle bag will make the perfect travel gift. Made from durable nylon, it includes a laptop sleeve and shoe compartment as well as loads of room inside, and fits in most overhead bins.
Most of us know the pain of trying to sleep when travelling – it can seem impossible to get even remotely comfortable. Make sure that doesn’t happen again with the Infinitely Pillow. Made to be wrapped, pummelled, stuffed, or folded, this pillow will turn any situation into an opportunity for sleep.
Convertible Travel Pillow Infinity Scarf
Drafts can be so uncomfortable when you’re trying to catch some shut-eye, but this infinity scarf will keep her warm when on the road. Not only that, but hidden inside the zippered pocket is an inflatable pillow that can be filled with a few puffs to provide comforting head support.
Smart Pack Travel Set
Rifling through cases for a t-shirt or shower gel can be a pain, especially when they’re jetlagged. Solve that problem with a set of expandable travel cubes and bags. Each one is labelled; for example, toiletries, documents, and shoes, so that she can find what she’s looking for straightaway.
Calpak Portable Travel Charger
Travel items that double-up in their purpose are a great idea as they take up much less room. This luggage tag includes a portable battery charger for charging phones, tablets, and other devices. Nestled inside a faux leather sleeve, it’s there on hand for when she needs to charge on-the-go.
AllBirds Tree Runners
Travelling can be hard on the feet, especially when there’s sightseeing to do. Treat her feet to a pair of supremely comfortable Allbirds Tree Runners. These intriguingly named sneakers are made from responsibly sourced eucalyptus tree fibers, making them lightweight, airy, and machine washable to keep them fresh.
These socks are awesome, and would make a great travel gift for women who don’t like to carry a purse. Each pair includes one standard sock and one sock with a zippered pocket which is perfectly-sized to hold credit cards, notes, or other small items she’ll need to keep close.
Weighted Sleep Mask
Help her to get a good night’s sleep, whether in a hotel or on a plane, with a weighted sleep mask. Using the same technology as a weighted blanket, the mask applies gentle pressure to key points around the eyes which are related to sleep, while also blocking out light.
Drybar Travel Hair Blow-Dryer
Hotel hair dryers are handy but they’re usually not up to the job. The Baby Buttercup Travel Blow-Dryer is small enough to tuck into her case, but comes with a 1200 watt motor for power and speed. Using negative ions to prevent frizz, her hair will be perfect in any language.
Made from 100% Spanish leather, the Traveller Wallet is the only wallet she’ll need whether she’s roaming for work or for play. In a vibrant red color, the wallet has dedicated space for cash, cards, mobile phone and passport, so everything she’ll need can be kept in one place.
Whether she’s rushing through the airport or hiking through the trees, her travels will be less stressful if she can go hands-free. This waist pack is large enough to carry travel documents, phone, cash, and keys in zippered compartments, and can also be worn across the shoulder for added versatility.
Tune Out Musical Sleep Mask
Ambient sounds and bright lights can play havoc with a traveller’s ability to sleep. Help her to drift off peacefully with the Tune Out Musical Sleep Mask. Thick enough to block out light, this clever gadget also allows her to play her favorite music or meditations while being totally cordless.
She Explores Book
Inspire a lady in your life to be bold and be brave in her travel aspirations with this fantastic book. Telling the real stories of 40 incredible women and the unusual journeys they embarked on, this book is full of beautiful photography and inspiring stories to give her the travel bug.

Not only will the McKinnon camera pack keep cameras and lenses safe and protected, it also has enough room to hold a laptop, tablet, and phone as well. Expandable to 42l, there is also room for clothing so everything she needs is all there in one place.
The Carry-On: Aluminum Edition
Travel gifts for women don’t come more useful than a carry-on suitcase. Designed to fit into most airlines’ overhead bins, this sleek aluminum case comes in four stunning colors and features 360 degree spinner wheels, a hidden laundry bag, slow-release handles, and an internal compression system to fit more in.
Now more than ever it’s essential to avoid touching high-touch surfaces, because the threat of contamination is just too real. The Cleankey has been designed to allow the user to open doors, use keypads and ATMs, press buttons and pull levers without having to touch the surfaces with their hands.
Old Fashioned Carry-On Cocktail Kit
With a long flight ahead of her, wouldn’t it be nice for her to kick back and enjoy a cocktail or two at 38,000 feet? This cute kit will allow her to mix two Old Fashioneds with just the addition of a mini bottle of rye, right there in her seat.
LARQ Self-cleaning Water Bottle
Make sure she has clean drinking water wherever she goes with the LARQ bottle. Every two hours (or more if it’s operated manually), the UV-C light is activated which destroys up to 99.9999% of bacteria and viruses, leaving both the water and the bottle germ-free and fresh.
Large enough to hold a laptop plus many other essentials, this smart backpack is stylish, discreet, and contemporary and will appeal to anyone who loves a minimalist look. Made from durable nylon, this bag is perfect for commuting or as carry-on luggage when travelling for work or for leisure.
Travel Cord Roll
Electronics cords can be the bane of a traveller’s life as they unravel and get themselves tangled up in everything. Keep them in one place and knot-free with a Travel Cord Roll which holds up to 8 cords and 2 plugs neatly and safely. It’s also useful for jewellery, too.
Collapsible Water Bottle
The jet-setting life can be thirsty work, and it’s important to stay hydrated at all times. Save her (and the planet) the trouble of buying and carrying disposable plastic bottles by giving her the Hydaway collapsible bottle, which can be folded to fit into a pocket when it’s empty.
Base Camp Travel Canister
She’ll be able to look good and feel fresh on-the-go thanks to the Base Camp Travel Canister from The North Face. Made from a nylon fabric, it can hold essentials such as toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant and more, and can be hung up with the integrated mirror for a quick freshen-up.
Telescoping Reusable Straw
It’s such a small thing, but having her own drinking straw can be a godsend when she’s travelling. Eliminating the need for disposable straws that destroy the planet, this stainless steel version is telescopic with its own case, so it’s super easy to carry in a purse or back pocket.
NOMAD Passport Wallet
Frequent flyers need a durable, smart place to stash their passport, and this leather wallet is perfect. With room for cards, cash, and passport, the wallet is also fitted with ‘Tile Tracking’, which allows them to locate their misplaced or lost wallet via the included phone app.
KeySmart Pro with Tile
Bunches of keys can really weigh a girl down, so lighten her load a little with the Keysmart Pro. Fitted with Tile Tracking technology, this rechargeable LED organizer holds keys discreetly inside, and can be traced via the free Tile app if she ever has the misfortune to lose them.
Moment Travel Set
Keep her lenses and other camera equipment safe and dry with this fabulous travel duo. Designed to fit onto a backpack strap, the travel pouch can carry two lenses, while the carrying case can hold leads, lenses, and 3 SD cards thanks to the dedicated Velcro-closing pocket.
Traditional backpacks can make it easy for thieves to lift things from the pockets as the zippers and closures are all on the outside. This anti-theft version comes with a range of clever features, like hidden zippers, strap pockets, and slash-proof materials to foil the most determined of pickpockets.
With a waterproof coating and sealed seams, this duffel bag is a must for anyone who likes their luggage light. Folding down into a tiny pouch and weighing just 5 ounces, this bag opens up to hold a massive 30 liters, which is also perfect for bringing back souvenirs from overseas.
