19. Hair Towel Wrap

Another one of my all-time favs. Typically, if I have a tool that can serve multiple purposes, I call that good enough. I don’t like to have a gadget for everything. It’s too much clutter.

But my husband is the king of all gift givers. He seems to know what I’m going to love better than I know myself. He got this hair wrap for me one year and now I can’t live without it!

And here’s why I can’t live without it. My hair dries faster. The towel sits far more secure than a normal towel and is far less awkward or bulky. This is a must-have item, especially for anyone with long hair.

20. Sephora Cleansing and Exfoliating Wipes

Again, this is another item I thought I could live without. Until I tried it. It’s so refreshing first thing in the morning, and gives me an extra little pep in my step. This ones going in my carry on bag next time to use as a post-flight pick-me-up!

22. Love Beauty and Planet Shampoo Bar

I tried this shampoo bar out of curiosity, and it worked just like normal shampoo – lathered up great and everything. And it lasts far longer than the small travel size bottles of shampoo, without the plastic waste, which is a win-win for me!

25. Portable Travel Size USB Essential Oil Diffuser

It can be difficult to sleep well away from home. Plus, invariably, someone always ends up under the weather when we travel. We found having a travel essential oil diffuser was indispensable. We’ve diffused peppermint for nausea, eucalyptus for better breathing, and lavender for better sleep.

26. Portable Charger

Don’t leave home without this! When you’re out on the go from dawn to dusk, there’s not always time to sit and charge your phone. This allows me to stay in touch with my travel buddies and take photos all day long, without a pause.

  • This is awesome! My sister would definitely love to get a scratch-off world map. She has been eyeing this for quite some time. Thank you for the reminder. Getting one for her this Christmas.

  • What a great assortment of travel gift ideas for the women in your life! I think my wife would love the bucket list journal and the planner notebook cause she loves to write and journal. That Canvas Tote is amazing as well. “Adventure Awaits” is the phrase we used for our wedding on all of our printables around the wedding reception! Personally, even though I am a guy, I think I would really love the FUJIFILM INSTAX MINI. I love this whole polaroid camera flashback that is going on right now.

  • I love all these suggestions, they’re perfect for a couple I know that love traveling. They’d love the scratch off map.

  • The face wipes are pretty amazing. I love the different scents too – I recently found green tea scented wipes!

  • So many great choices here 🙌 I can’t go a day without face wipes, so they would DEFINITELY be a must for me whilst travelling too! An outlet adapter would also be a life saver too, and would come in handy for future travels as well.

  • Doesn’t the rainbow atlas look so fun?! I know what you mean about the birks – I never thought they’d be so comfortable for such long distances and periods of time!
