Thanksgiving is coming and Black Friday is on its way, which means consumers are about to be inundated with gift guides galore. Try to have a game plan, set a budget and stick to it, because those January credit card bills can be traumatizing if you tend to get carried away (not that I’m speaking from experience or anything). I found so many amazing gift ideas this year, it’s hard to put them all in one post, so I’ll start with this one featuring holiday gifts for women who love travel.

Holiday Gifts for Women Who Love Travel
1. A comfortable wrap
Wraps, ruanas, ponchos, whatever you want to call them, they’re comfortable, and they are perfect for travel. This cashmere one from Nordstrom is beautiful, but you can find one of these just about anywhere this season.
Yes, adult coloring books are all the rage, but what better way to spend time coloring in the world’s 100 greatest places, as voted by travel experts as Lonely Planet. The book also includes descriptions of each place at the conclusion of the book so you can learn more about the destination. This book is guaranteed to exercise your creativity, focus your mind and inspire your inner traveler.
If you’ve ever lost your keys, you need these Tiles in your life. The Tile Mate loops onto a key ring or anything you don’t want to lose. I keep one in my wallet and purse and if they are misplaced, I use the Tile app on my phone to find them. This has been a lifesaver!
Whether traveling solo or with kids, there are times a cellphone camera won’t make the cut. That’s when this camera from Olympus comes in handy. It is waterproof to depths of 50 feet, can capture RAW images, and has underwater modes with underwater HDR and 1080 HD video. Perfect for the adventure traveler in your life.
Can you just say everything in this advent calendar is travel size? And it’s from L’Occitane, so you know it’s amazing! 24 exclusive gifts to count down the holiday season.
This is one of those gifts for someone REALLY special in your life. The Knomo is the ultimate organizer that even has a built in charger for cell phones. Plenty of pockets for organization and a cross body strap make it a perfect purse for women on the go.
7. UGG Dakota Slippers
Nothing feels better after a long day exploring than changing into a comfortable pair of slippers. These UGG moccasins are heavenly with their soft wool lining that cradles your foot. They come in a variety of fun colors too from Jester Red to Peacoat Purple.
8. Travel pillow organizer
Have you ever worried about falling asleep on a train or plane and losing your valuables? Worry no more with this travel pillow that has zippered pockets, open pockets, and a snap tab to hold your headphone cord in place. The pillow will keep your phone, passport, eyeglasses, and credit cards all in one place and the memory foam makes for a comfortable place to rest your head.
9. Travel journal
In my opinion, one can never have enough travel journals. They come in all shapes and sizes, but I love this one with its soft cover and the color. Find a fun monogram or sticker and it’s personalized!
10. Packing cube set
Packing cubes are a life saver because they allow travelers to keep everything sorted within a suitcase. This set is waterproof and includes 3 packing cubes, 3 compression pouches, and a bag for shoes. Perfect for keeping dirty shoes and wet clothes separate so clothes don’t get damaged.
If there’s one thing I always find myself needing when traveling, it’s a way to organize jewelry. This leather travel case separates earrings, bracelets, and necklaces and prevents them from getting tangled with smart pockets, zippers, and snaps.
12. Subscription boxes
There’s a subscription box out there for everyone on your list, but for those that love travel, there’s a couple I would recommend. We love Try the World food boxes which bring food items from a different country to your door each month. GlobeIn bills itself as “the globe in a box” and features handmade, artisan gifts from around the world delivered to your doorstep each month. CAUSEBOX sends out a quarterly selection of socially conscious products from socially conscious brands. The products inside CAUSEBOX help provide jobs, meals, education, clean water, and more to countless women, men, and children around the world.
13. Travel themed mug
Nothing says relaxing at home like a warm cup of coffee or tea. Put it in this cute mug with a watercolor map and you are ready to take on the world!
14. Gift cards
There’s Amazon for the person who has everything, or maybe a gift card to their favorite restaurant, hotel chain, or airline.
15. Make a unique photo gift
I love using Instagram to share my photos (you can find me here), but I would love to create something with them. How about a scarf, pillow, or tote bag using Instagram images? You can make it happen over at Stitchta. This one of our favorite holiday gifts for women who love travel.
So what are you giving or hoping to receive this holiday season? We want to hear!
