A TEFL Course
One of the surest ways to experience another culture in a foreign country is to teach English. While this used to be an easy and accessible route, the job market is becoming more saturated in popular South Asian countries like Korea and Japan.
To make sure she stands out to recruiters, she will need some kind of accreditation behind her. A TEFL certificate from ITTT is a 120-hour TEFL/TESOL Online Course that she can take from anywhere and is internationally recognised. It is for sure one of the top travel gifts for her if she is considering either a career in education or a gap year living abroad.
BONUS: Watch our expert webinar in the group that tells you ALL about teaching English abroad, how to pick the right course, how to find a job, etc.
Shipping: This is an online class, so you just need internet access and a computer.
Price: US$239 without a tutor or US$349 with tutor support, videos and a free 50-hour specialized course. Many more courses are available for further certification. Enjoy 10% off the prices by using our official community link in the button below.
Trusted HouseSitters Annual Membership
The most expensive part of traveling is most likely the accommodation. So what if she can find the perfect house for free? If she is an animal lover she can trade an entire home, anywhere in the world, for taking care of furry, fluffy, hairy and even scaly little friends.
Housesitting is the perfect way to travel in comfort for cheap and Trusted HouseSitters pairs credible and verified sitters with owners to create a match made in heaven. Not only is an annual subscription one of the best travel gifts for women that love travel, it’s also a unique gift for women who have pets and are constantly looking for sitters. It’s easy to use with an app, a 24/7 Vet Advice Line, and constant sharing between owner and sitter.
Shipping: This is an online company, so there is no shipping involved.
Price: Sitter or owner-only annual subscription fees are $129/year, or you can get the combined owner/sitter subscription for $189/year.
Travel insurance is a must, whether it’s a quick trip to a neighboring country or an entire gap year abroad. She will need reliable and pervasive insurance that provides specific travel medical coverage at an affordable price point to make sure that she is covered for anything from theft to visiting the ER. There’s nothing worse than getting sick abroad, and if she isn’t covered financially and needs medical assistance, it can be devastating.
So while purchasing travel insurance may not seem like one of the best travel gifts for her, it is very practical and always welcome. Our favorite is SafetyWing, which utilizes monthly instalments and can be purchased while she is abroad. In fact, we did a detailed comparison of travel insurance companies and SafetyWing came out on top as the best travel insurance for solo female travelers.
BONUS: SafetyWing insurance covers COVID.
Shipping: Internationally, purchased online
Price: Monthly plans start from $41/ 4 weeks and cover COVID. You can pick your coverage and duration and set up monthly payment methods so you never forget.
A Self-Defense Class
This one’s for those concerned about safety. A self-defense class is a great way to build self-confidence and know how to approach dangerous situations and it could be the difference between safety and fatality.
We suggest IMPACT’s self-defense classes because they are done online from anywhere, so all she needs is a webcam and internet access.
Not only do they teach physical protection, but verbal protection too, because the best fight is no fight at all. That’s why this is one of the most useful travel gifts for her. See the video they did with Tastemade Travel above which won a Webby Award.
IMPACT is a non-profit organization that was founded by CEO Lisa Gaeta, who started developing this particular system in 1987. It has been running for over 30 years, teaching self-defense around the world to people of all genders and ages. She combines negotiation skills and people-management to develop her unique strategies. All classes are taught by women-lead instructors.
Price: $30 for 90min public virtual class. Private classes available. In Person classes will resume when safe. Students will role-play with an instructor via Zoom.
Shipping: This is a virtual class and is available globally.
Australian UGG Boots
Ugg boots are an Aussie icon and for good reason. Made from premium sheepskin and wool, Uggs are some of the most comfortable shoes ever created and built to last (they’re genuinely the world’s most comfortable shoes!).
UGGEXPRESS has a great range of styles, colours and shapes to make sure you can find a pair of Uggs that are perfect for you. They have a collection of both slippers and boots (as well as Australian sheepskin rugs), and styles include mini boots, short boots, tall boots, in both flats, and heels; everything from traditional UGG boots to on-trend moccasins and loafers.
The Mina Boot (pictured above) has a cow leather upper, sheepskin wool lining, rubber sponge sole (water resistant), and comes in chestnut, grey, pink & black
Price: Collection of footwear ranges from approximately $50 AUD – $150 AUD
Shipping: Australia and New Zealand. However, you can book for an international courier by yourself to ship to your overseas address.
Loom Shoes are probably the footwear with the biggest heart. When you get top designers, engineers, ergonomic specialists, scientists, and adventurers who love the planet all in one room, the result is astounding.
Other than being made from vegan cruelty-free material sourced from some of the most eco-friendly farms in the world, Loom Shoes are incredibly functional. At once they’re waterproof and breathable, lightweight and flexible, comfortable and stylish. They also contain moisture-wicking material and antimicrobial properties that have anti-odor capabilities that destroy bacteria in sweat, so your shoes style fresher for longer.
One pet peeve we have is traveling with soaked socks as water seeps through our shoes, so these all-terrain sneakers for any occasion are the perfect answer to your wetness woes. We put them to the test in Singapore and they succeeded in keeping our feet dry. If they work in the wet weather of Singapore, they are sure to keep you dry on your travels!
Price: Loom Shoes from $99 USD (use coupon code below for 10% off)
Coupon Code: SFT10
While she may love the feel of paper on her fingers when lounging by the pool on holiday (we do!), sometimes it’s not practical to bring several books while on the road. This is where an electronic reader like the Kindle comes in handy. She can fit thousands of books into this little device (6,000 in the 8GB alone) and it is better for the eyes when reading novels than a tablet due to the front light shining onto the screen (mimicking sunlight) and not into her eyes.
She can also get the Fire if she wants to use the e-reader for things other than reading or if she plans to read travel guides and wants the images to be displayed in color.
If she already has Kindle, then the perfect addition would just be to purchase a book. Which book would be a good choice?
We’ve written a great article to help you decide! In our article on 100+ Inspirational Books for Women, we’ve included everything from female empowerment, self improvement, travel inspiration and coffee table style travel books to inspire wanderlust. Get our top picks here.
A Light, Packable Jacket
Packing can be a nightmare. So when we find something that’s a combination of trendy, high quality and can be rolled up to the size of a water bottle, we’re all for it.
The Women’s Lightweight Recycled Poly-Fill Packable Jacket is practical, affordable and looks great on all body types. They’re made using 100% recycled cloudfill insulation and make for great travel gifts for women with a conscience.
32 Degrees is a company that provides the most technologically advanced fabrics at a considerate price. Their timeless products are comfortable, casual and affordable with a sustainable goal.
Shipping: US only
Price: Currently on sale for $39.99
Vegan Backpacks that Give Back
Adventurist Classic backpacks are wonderful travel gifts for women travelers, hikers and campers that want a high quality and fashionable carrier that gives back. The Classic is water-resistant, made with 1000D polyester and vegan leather. It has padding front/back for increased protection for electronics/camera gear, while fitting up to a 15″ laptop in the sleeve. It also fits perfectly underneath the seat of an airplane as a personal item.
Founders Kelly Belknap and Matilda Sandstroem started Adventurist Backpack Co to provide mid-priced and high quality minimalist backpacks for travel, with a cause. For every backpack sold, they provide 25 meals to families in need across the U.S. through their partnership with non-profit Feeding America. Since their launch in 2017, they’ve provided over 150,000 meals to families across the country.
Shipping: Throughout U.S. and Canada, as well as internationally, and online via Urban Outfitters
Price: The Adventurist Classic backpack is $65
Responsible Uber Practical Backpacks
Day Owl makes nifty little backpacks that, due to the smart layout and pockets, will cut down the TSA check time by 50%. The stylish and ethically manufactured backpack also comes with free repairs for life, one of the must-have travel gifts for her.
Day Owl is a subsidiary of First Mile, who makes fabric for the future, from the past. The fabric is ethically manufactured waxed canvas that is made from 100% recycled fabric, created through traceable sourcing and fair working conditions. Their aim is to fight child labor while helping the environment. With each bag made it saves 25 bottles from landfills or oceans, 700 gallons of water (as opposed to cotton bags) and avoids 1.2 lbs of pesticides (also from cotton bags).
A Recycled, Weather-proof Camera Backpack
Peak Design Everyday Backpack Zip is both a laptop and a camera bag, which is a beautiful and sleek backpack, but has the unique benefit of a main compartment which opens from either side so you can easily access anything in the bag, even if it’s at the bottom.
Plenty of pockets for storing cards, cords, and additional accessories like hard drives. And it’s weatherproof and waterproof which means your gear is not getting wet if you’re in a place where the weather changes every 5 minutes!
This is a visually and functionally simpler version of their iconic Everyday Backpack, and it’s ultra-clean aesthetic makes it ideal for discreet urban everyday or photo carry.
The Passport Bag
The Passport Bag is handcrafted with premium Italian leather in Los Angeles, USA. It will keep your glasses, credit cards, keys, phone, make-up and passport protected. It can be used as a Crossbody bag or around your neck for safety, which makes this bag perfect for airports, concerts, festivals, or a long walk.
This practical bag features beautiful topstitching Italian leather and premium quality hardware. The Passport Bag has an external pocket. Adjustable strap with easy to secure clasp, lined interior with a pocket to keep your credit cards secured and a premium AD exclusive zippered closure with a leather tassel pull.
Alicia Dakteris’ creations were born out of the need to have a practical handbag solution for international travels as well as something nice for stepping out to dinner – a combination handbag for both business and pleasure.
A Yoga or Meditation Retreat from BookYogaRetreats
In this chaotic world where she’s constantly switched on, one of the most thoughtful travel gifts for her is a meditation or yoga retreat. She can go on an extended digital detox and realign herself physically, mentally and emotionally.
BookYogaRetreats is an aggregator with what seems like an infinite list of retreats and escapes. If you’re unsure which option to choose for the woman in your life, you can always reach out them to help choose from over 6,000 retreats all over the world.
Shipping: Internationally, book online.
Price: Options vary depending on the retreat chosen but start at around $99.
This is one of the ultimate electronic travel gifts for her and something that will make anyone happy, a sure winner.
The GoPro for the intrepid traveler who loves adventure and likes to document everything from jumping off waterfalls to tuk tuk taxi rides.
Some purchases come with extras like an underwater casing and dust protector, or just buy the camera and let her decide which add-ons would be best (though we highly recommend the stick for selfies!).
Ever wondered how all those awesome shots with a fisherman on his boat and the fish swimming under water where taken? It is not the magic of a photographer but the right accessory. For the GoPro all you need is to get a Dome Port and you are sorted.
Selfie Photos Kit
One item she will need to complete her solo travel is a sturdy tripod or reliable monopod so that she can take great pictures of herself or her surroundings. While there isn’t an actual selfie photo kit that we know of, through our years of travel we’ve combined several items to create the ultimate selfie kit.
The first item on the list is a lightweight tripod that can fit in her carry-on bag. The JOBY GorillaPod Starter Kit is a compact tripod that weighs just under 3 oz for sub-compact cameras that weigh up to 500 grams (it can fit around 360 camera types including phones). The legs are also flexible that can wrap around different objects like tree branches.
Her kit is not complete without a selfie stick. Amazon’s top pick is the VPROOF Selfie Stick, which is a lightweight monopod that can extend to 31.9 inches Monopod and has a Bluetooth remote that’s compatible with most modern phones.
Budding photographers need something a bit more sturdy and the Joilcan portable tripod is a great option. It’s compact, light weight and made from aluminium so it’s pretty sturdy. The Joilcan extends from 18.5″ up to 80″, weighs 3.37 lb and supports point-and-shoot, mirrorless, and DSLR cameras weighing up to 19 lb. She can mount just about any camera or phone as it has a universal mount and it comes with a monopod!
Idea Mountain Packing System
Say what? That’s right, this is not a backpack, but a system. This agile set looks pretty normal on the outside, but is actually a complete carrying system made up of 5 uniquely designed carrying bags integrated into 1 minimalist carry-on.
Just like Goldilocks, the back is neither too bulky, nor too small, but comes apart to create something that is “just right” for the specific travel.
The high-quality PU coated nylon backpack comes with a hip pack, a day pack, a travel pack, a laptop sleeve, and a toiletries kit all in one. Leave the unnecessary part at home or separate to form multiple items, such a cool travel gift for her!
Idea Mountain aims to become carbon neutral in the effort to help support global citizens. They believe that travel expands the mind and global friendships are the future. They have even offered all members of our Facebook Group an additional 10% discount off all orders.
Trouvaille Ceramic Mug
The perfect travel gift for her that is both practical and boastful is this cutesy World Travel Mug. The idea, similar to a world scratch map is to color in each country that she’s visited with a permanent marker. It’s designed and made in Europe with high-quality ceramic and includes a special ceramic pen for colouring the countries. The Mug is both microwave and dishwasher safe, and comes in a capacity of 500 ml or 16.9 oz.
The company that designs this item is Trouvaille, a European couple who has been travelling together since 2008. Their must-have souvenir from each country they visited was a mug, so they decided to take it a step further to remind them of ALL their trips.
The word Trouvaille is really cool and means, “A chance encounter with something wonderful; a lucky find” which perfectly represents both their products and philosophy of providing business with a minimal impact on the environment using sustainable practices. All their products are sustainably produced in Europe and come in plastic-free packaging. They also donate part of their profits to a UK environmental and social charity.
Price: Mug – £19.95 (approx. 22 EUR / 26 USD)
DryFoxCo Travel Towel
Our experience with microfiber towels is that they’re either too small or they don’t really absorb the water enough. Along comes DryFoxCo to bring about one of the best travel gifts for her, an XL travel towel that is made from the softest microfiber which absorbs wonderfully and is quick drying. It only weighs 8 oz and comes with a water-resistant pocket to conceal your valuables. There are also pack towels and washcloths available.
Their towels are made using high quality materials that are economical and environmentally friendly. They’re some of the coolest travel gifts for women that love hiking and adventures, as they’re made by a solo female backpacker.
A fun take on the words “pillow” and “fill”, this super clever invention lets the woman in your life take her sweater or hoodie and turn it into a cushion when traveling. The small contraption fits in her pocket, is easy to wash and adjusts to her own comfort. So now your loved one doesn’t have to schlep along a travel cushion with each trip, dropping it on the floor and then putting it close to their face.
It’s also one of the best travel gifts for her if she loves backpacking. The Flight Fillow is also a great way to pack that extra piece of bulky clothing without taking up space and weight in your luggage.
SABRE Personal Safety Devices
If you’re worried about your loved one’s safety on the road then a product from SABRE is probably one of the best travel gifts for her.
They are the leading brand in personal safety particularly for travel and outdoor adventures.
Their personal alarm is compact and sleek and can even be carried on a keychain. Remove the device from the keychain and a 120 decibel alarm that can be heard up to 1000 feet (300m) sounds, attracting attention and fending off would-be attackers.
The perfect way to keep safe while backpacking is to use the door stop alarm. How it works is that she slides it under her door and when door pressure is applied, the extremely loud 120 dB alarm sounds and wakes up and alerts your lady and everyone around her of the potential intruder.
SABRE has also been in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) since 2008 in their mission to help women and have since raised over $2M to support treatment and preventative cancer care.
A Tumi Carry-on Bag
Mar’s trusty Tumi has followed her around the world several times. She used to take it with her on every trip, every single week, for a decade and it is still her most precious and most valuable carry-on.
She drags it down the stairs, up the stairs, through rain, snow, gravel, dust, desert, heat. It has gone on countless trips (she reckons over 2,000) and it is still in great shape.
In the same time and with much lower frequency, she has had several larger suitcases but none gets anywhere near her Tumi.
This is one of the most resistant and durable travel gifts for her that is also stylish and modern, ultra-frequent solo female travelers must have a Tumi. Trust us. The most popular and one of the first models, the expandable Tumi Alpha is a fantastic travel partner. We have the hard case one because we like that the many customs control stickers can literally be wiped off.
As frequent travelers that have to capture each moment on multiple devices, when it comes to charging things we’re very strict.
Anyone who has traveled with us knows that all our electronics are constantly charging. Our favorite battery pack is the Omni 20+ power bank because it can even charge laptops (multiple brands) through the USB C port.
One of the most practical travel gifts for her, especially if she is a business professional, digital nomad or aspiring influencer.
Vegan Leather and Canvas Travel Bags
We’re all for vegan products, but pleather is usually not the classiest of materials. That’s why we highly recommend this timeless and functional bag from White Elm. Their vegan leather just screams quality and their attractive design is classy and just plain beautiful.
Definitely one of the classier travel gifts for women, their oversized tote gives you the look, feel and texture of leather but it’s totally vegan. It has various pockets including three exterior pockets and five interior pockets and the choice between a longer shoulder strap or easy-carry handles. Digital nomads can even fit their laptops in there.
White Elm is the brainchild of a busy working mompreneur who wanted the design and functional elements for a perfect bag. She actually created the bag in 2012 when she was pregnant with her first daughter (after quitting her job in banking).
Curated Gift Set
One of the most useful travel gifts for her is a TSA or luggage friendly beauty product. This curated Beach Please gift set from Tabi Jet Sets for female beach vacationers includes reef-friendly translucent sunscreen, a wet or dry hairbrush for all hair types, a quick-dry compact towel and a dishwasher safe water bottle that supports clean water projects globally.
Rebecca Isoda is the brainchild behind Tabi Jet Sets (“Tabi” is the Japanese word for journey or travel) and has a passion for travel. So you know that the items in her curated gift sets come from trials, errors, wins, fails and personal experience that are specifically designed for modern travelers. It also has a Social Responsibility Component to include eco-friendly and all-natural/organic beauty products that are always cruelty-free. It is also a member of 1% for the planet.
Shipping: Free Shipping, United States Only (all 50 states, not including U.S. territories and military addresses).
The Scrunchie Club
When looking for a small gift with a heart, why not gift a stylish silk scrunchie. We love the ones from Sienna Naturals, a company that specializes in hair care using natural ingredients that are also good for the environment. All their products are plant-based vegan and sulfate-free.
They have 2 lovely green shades and promise that their silk scrunchies won’t damage your hair. The best travel presents for her are usually something with a bit of meaning, a scrunchie could be the answer.
Shipping: US only
WaypointGoods Travel Scarf
Heidi Siefkas, a Maui-based writer, blogger, and adventurer highly recommends this brand and believes that these products make for the perfect travel gifts for women. While there are multiple amazing items from Waypoint Goods, our top pick is the Travel Scarf with a hidden zipper pocket for your valuables like a passport, cellphone, money etc. as it’s super functional and keeps your items well hidden.
Caitlin Blythe is the founder of Waypoint Goods and is passionate about fashion-forward travel (and lifestyle) accessories for women that are equally as passionate about discovering the world. Her Scarf is the culmination of years of travel experience.
Violet UV Clean Kit
2020 has made us all into germaphobes. Hand sanitizer wafts in the air wherever you go and we freak out at the slightest sniffle. Along comes the UVC light storage bag, a small lunchbox sized zip-up bag that uses UVC light to sanitize and disinfect your personal items with just a click of a button. Now you can make sure all your personal items are super clean from masks to phones to keys and baby products in just 3 minutes. It was even labeled by Forbes as “the best way to sanitize”.
B A S U eAlarm Safety Device
Similar to the SABRE product above, but a bit more fashion-forward, this eAlarm is what all parents need to get their traveling princesses. The device looks like a cute flash drive, but when you detach the top part it creates an enormous SOS call. Listen to the high pitched scream here. As long as the two parts are detached from one another, the sound will continue for 30 minutes. It also serves as an animal deterrent when camping or hiking.
B A S U takes its social responsibility seriously making sure that all its suppliers are accountable for upholding human rights with fair labor practices and safe working environments. It conducts periodic surveys and audits of a number of our suppliers to assess and verify compliance with their Supplier Code of Conduct and other supply chain requirements. B A S U is also committed to educating our workforce about modern slavery and human trafficking and ensuring compliance with applicable laws.
nCAP Drug-free Pain Relief
We all understand how it is to be in pain. Yet when she’s on the move and gets a sudden cramp in her foot, glittering lights that preempt a migraine, or a severe period cramp, it can change a trip of a lifetime into a nightmare. nCAP is the answer and one of the best travel gifts for women that experience sporadic yet constant pain.
The product is a drug free alternative for controlling all sorts of pains a traveling woman might experience. It’s a reusable and shareable patch that weighs almost nothing and can be carried in her handbag.
They way this patch works is by embedding billions of tiny high-tech capacitors into a thin flexible patch to create the world’s first nano-capacitive pain relief device. So you just place it “Between the Pain and the Brain” for instant pain relief. So there’s no batteries, no wires, no herbs, no sticky adhesives, and no drugs.
It also has a 100% money-back guarantee if she finds that it doesn’t work for her.
Pakt Coffee Kit
We are total coffee snobs and one of our pet peeves is being in the fanciest hotel only to be served what seems like hot dirty water in the morning instead of a perfectly brewed cuppa Joe. Pakt is the solution to all coffee woes. They are a responsibly-sourced travel gear company that creates beautiful and cleverly designed travel products with our favorite, the Pakt Coffee Kit.
This is one of the most unique travel gifts for her, especially if she NEEDS a good cup of Barista-Quality coffee. It’s basically a compact, all-in-one coffee-making kit (everything but a grinder, although there is a container for ground beans).
Along with all the classic components for a pour-over, it even has an electric kettle. As it’s allowed on her carry-on, she can even make a fresh cup on her layover! (Yup there’s even a cup in there). Intelligentsia has even called it “the best on the go kit we’ve found”, and we couldn’t agree more.
We have tested it ourselves and have become instant fans. The pourer runs smooth with a consistent flow of water to make the perfect pour-over every time. The materials are ergonomic and feel great in our hands with a rubbery texture. The kettle heats water to a perfect temperature, and the design is clever, world-class and flawlessly gorgeous. We also love the cover, which looks like a speaker cover from Bang & Olufsen or JBL. One can see that they put a lot of effort into both the technology and the design.
The team at Pakt opted to use modern, durable, technical materials that are animal-friendly and have the lowest possible environmental impact and have recently committed to become Climate Neutral Certified. Products are shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging designed by its sister company, SeaHive.
Shipping: Free in the US if over $125, also to over 225 countries
Price: Coffee Kit is $189
Sam & Nala Masks
Does she have a fluffy friend that goes everywhere with her?
Then these female-designed handmade masks and pet scarves will be some of the most perfect travel gifts for her (definitely get more than one!).
When you purchase a gift from Sam & Nala, you also give back to the international community by supporting female artisans who otherwise would not be able to get their products to you.
She will love that her present is not only practical, stylish and unique, but it also supports global fempreneurs.
An Unforgettable Female-only Group Trip
One of the greatest travel gifts for women who don’t like traveling alone is an unforgettable group trip of a lifetime. Our top pick is responsible travel company G Adventures. One of the things we love about them is that their trips have a lifetime voucher guarantee in case it gets cancelled or postponed. So if she books and can’t travel, she will get the amount in credit to be used anytime with no deadline.
Get her a safari in South Africa’s Kruger National Park, a trip to see the monkeys of East Sabah in Borneo, a 7-day Inca hiking trip to Machu Picchu, a sailing journey through the Greek Islands and so much more. All trips are held by experts and with the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Safe Travels stamp, her safety is taken care of.
For more ideas, we have written a complete guide to women-only tours and travel groups where you can get inspiration for trips with like minded women.
Shipping: Internationally, purchased online.
Price: There are multiple tours available, so the price will depend on the option chosen.
A Premium Language App
There’s no better way to explore a new country than by using the language. Gone are the days that she needs weighty books to learn a new tongue, as everything nowadays is on an app. Our favorite language apps and one of our top picks for travel gift ideas for her is Mondly, one of the newest language learning apps on the scene.
We have actually written pretty expensively about it and compared to other apps in our article Best Language Learning Apps. So check it out to see why this would make for an amazingly unique and useful gift that keeps on giving.
Subscription to Scott’s Cheap Flights
Searching for the cheapest flights can be a cumbersome experience. There are thousands of choices from multiple airlines and aggregators so it can get a bit overwhelming to make a choice. Scott’s Cheap Flights allows her to select the airport she is traveling from and their team of flight experts help you to find the cheapest options available.
Scott’s doesn’t waste your time and only select options that are ACTUAL deals, with an estimated 40-90% off normal prices. They will even let you know how long specific deals last through constantly updated emails. Their premium membership is therefore one of the top travel gifts for her, especially if she is a frequent flyer.
Shipping: Internationally, book online.
Price: A Premium Membership is only $49/year and which can be canceled anytime.
A Cooking Class from Cookly
The best way to a person’s heart is always through food, which makes a cooking class from Cookly one of the most thoughtful travel gifts for her. With close to 40 countries, Cookly is a major force in cuisine education all over the world. She can learn to make kimchi in Seoul, pasta in Rome, izakaya specialities in Japan, or nasi goreng in Bali.
It’s the perfect present for the solo female traveler on the road as it’s a culmination of tastes, flavors, local culture, history, social entertainment and, of course, a free meal! That’s why a cooking class is more than just a culinary experience, it allows her to delve deeper into the culture she’s journeying where she gets to mix with the locals and gain a skill she can bring home. She also gets to support the local economy and local businesses.
Price: Depends on the class and country.
Sustainable Travel-Friendly Yoga Mat
We always love promoting travel gifts for her that have an environmentally friendly edge. As yogis ourselves, we highly recommend the Livity durable cork and all natural rubber yoga mats. They are biodegradable and manufactured in an innovative way that is 100% plastic and toxin free. The cork allows for loads of sweat if she’s doing hot yoga or just doing her flow outside during a Southeast Asian summer. They are also naturally antimicrobial and the natural rubber gives them durability.
Jamaican-born American migrant, Renee Manzari is the CEO and femfounder of Livity Yoga. She is trying to become completely sustainable in her efforts and on this journey has become part of 1% for the Planet. Her company also gives 3% of their profits to reforestation and plastic pollution projects. See more of their products on Insta.

She can plan everything on her desktop and then use the map she created on her phone after saving it for offline use.

Electrolyte Hydration Packs
Sometimes on her travels she can experience the unfortunate situation of losing a whole lot of H2O (Bali and Delhi Belly anyone?). The best way to fight off this unlucky situation is to replenish her body with electrolytes. Instead of trying to find the nearest pharmacy in a foreign city, prepare her accordingly with Ultima Replenisher Electrolyte Hydration that contains six electrolytes and also has zero sugar, calories or carbs and is sweetened only with organic Stevia leaf.
The powder is vegan, as well as gluten, soy and dairy-free, and to top it all off, it’s keto and paleo-friendly. All she needs to do is mix her favorite flavor with a bottle of water and top herself up to get a new energy. Ultima also is in partnership with (and approved by) the Autism Hope Alliance, the first non-profit foundation for Autism to emerge from the natural foods industry.

Roll-up Jewelry Organizer
We have this great large necklace and every time we travel we fight for it not to lose shape, we even had to iron it twice!
A jewelry organizer is a great way to make sure things are properly stored. The roll-up ones like this one can easily fit in a corner of her carry on so it’s one of those small and convenient travel gifts for her to enjoy.
A Refined Pair of Hunter Wellington Boots
Because she has to keep warm in the winter and in the snow while being fashionable. Hunter’s printed snow and rain wellies are making a come back in nice floral prints.
The snow boots are more fashionable than the plastic shiny ones her grandma used to wear but with all the waterproof warmth of the original ones.
Don’t forget to add a pair of high socks to this travel gift for her to keep those toes toasty.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Because, well, every girl we know dries her hair, except for Mar!
Dyson makes very sleek hair driers, that are light and come in a nice box. They are powerful and will make sure you leave your hotel room stylish and ready to hit the town.
One of the more practical and convenient travel gifts for women, particularly those that fuss about the quality of hotel driers.
Shoes For Sightseeing
The most important item when traveling are her shoes.
If she wears the wrong ones she’ll end up with wrecked feet.
We are huge fans of simple shoes that are made for walking but are also stylish. We like these Futsole Nufoot ballerina shoes because they are cute and snuggly.
Shoes For The Plane
Two things are sure in a plane: It will be cold and it will be dirty, so nobody wants to walk around barefoot.
We love these foldable pair of travel ballet flats both for getting to, through and on the plane as well as for comfortably flying in economy.
They will keep her from walking on the filthy floors in her socks and get her feet warm and cozy.
Folding Running Shoes
One of the travel gifts for women who are always active while traveling, the Nike Free Flyknit are folding shoes which pack flat to the sole and are light.
She can also use them to go running or to the hotel gym, best of both worlds. Better yet, if there are any excursions that involve hiking, walking or being active, they can also be used for this.
Wi-Fi On The Go
The internet has become a pervasive part of everyday life. Maybe she runs her business online, she might be a digital nomad who constantly needs to be online while traveling, or possibly she’s a teacher in online education. Whatever her needs, purchase one of these travel gifts for her so that she’ll always be plugged in.
TravelWifi is the original travel wifi hotspot and has two very attractive offerings. The Sapphire 2 Wi-Fi device offers global, secure and unlimited internet for all her needs. It includes 1GB of global data with coverage in more than 130 countries, with up to 4G LTE speed.
A more affordable alternative is the TravelWifi SIM Card, which offers unlimited calling and texting along with 4G LTE data.
Shipping: Sapphire 2 hotspot in over 130 countries, the SIM Card in 85+ Countries.
Price: The Sapphire 2 hotspot can be rented for $6.95/day or bought for $149 with 1GB included with no roaming fees. The SIM Card is $39.95 with 20GB included.
If she is going on a more out of range destination, like the top of a mountain in Iran or the jungles of the Galapagos, she may need the Iridium Go! which is a portable WiFi hotspot that connects her to the world through a satellite connection.
As long as she has direct line of sight to a satellite, which she will have if she is anywhere outdoors and without anything blocking her, she can get internet. It won’t come cheap. The Iridium Go! hotspot is $799 on Amazon but it will ensure that she is covered in case of any emergency when completely disconnected.
iPhone Waterproof Case
If she has an iPhone and is a diver, there’s no need to spend money on a new GoPro.
She can just get an external waterproof case and take pictures and video right from her iPhone.
This case from Proshot goes a full 15m (50 ft) down.
Here’s one of the top-notch travel gifts for her if she’s a diver or fond of ocean travel (or the beach).
A dry bag is super useful to keep clothes and electronics dry when traveling near or around water.
She can get a smaller one for clothes or day trips, or a larger duffel bag if she doesn’t pack light. Mar uses it every weekend in rainy Singapore to make sure her valuables aren’t caught out in the rain!
Everyone swears by this nifty way of packing clothes in compartments because they help fit more into the suitcase and find things easily.
They are very popular with almost all travelers, that is if she hasn’t already figured out her very own unique style of packing like some people (ahem, Mar).
This is a game-changer for frequent travelers. Instead of lugging around heavy liquids, which weigh a lot, she can carry her shampoo in powder or spray form.
As she won’t need water to clean her hair with this product, it is super practical and can also give her hair an extra vibrancy if she’s meeting someone directly after her flight. It’s one of those great travel gifts for her especially if she’s a businesswoman and flies frequently. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day delivers on its name.
Imagine being in a foreign country that is known to have unsafe drinking water, but she’s super thirsty with no market in sight. The answer to all her problems comes in the form of this portable purifier that produces clean water. This makes it the top travel gifts for women that are on humanitarian missions throughout the world.
The H2gO Purifier can treat 10 gallons of water per day with no maintenance, no spare parts, and no consumables other than common salt. And it fits in her pocket! How it works: salt is dissolved in water, electricity is run through this saltwater, which breaks the salt down and chlorine is produced. The electricity can be from any source, including solar power. And because salt is the only ingredient, there is virtually no cost to run them.
The company, Aqua Research, has donated items to major humanitarian organizations for water treatment and COVID-19 response, including Catholic Relief Services, Caris Foundation, USAID, PATH, Hilton Foundation and Operation Blessing to countries ranging from Madagascar, Ghana, Burkina Faso to Liberia.
Price: The Purifier is $99.00
Foldable Toiletry Bag
We have used these for years, even at home.
So when we come back from a trip we simply hang it on our shower glass and when we are on a trip we hang it either from doors or towel hangers. We cannot think of a more practical way to pack the toiletries, drugs, small medical kits, etc. And when she folds it up it packs small.
DJI Camera Drone – Phantom 4
Mar got her first DJI Phantom 2 Visio Plus in 2014 and has since been an avid drone photographer moving on to the DJI Phantom 3, Phantom 4, and then on to the Mavic Pro.
Nothing beats the great pictures and videos you can take with a drone and the Mavic Air is quite easy to navigate, much much easier than that first Phantom mar bought (and crashed) several times.
The DJI Mavic Air is a very small drone that fits anywhere. If there is something we have learned from years of flying is to buy an extra pair of propellers, in case you crash and they break, and to get extra batteries because they don’t last long. In the button below we have highlighted a combo pack that has everything for amazing photos and videos.
This is the video Mar made after staying at Nihi Sumba mostly using the Mavic Pro. See how easy it is to capture something great.
A Local Tour by Experts
We realised that, although we have been living in Singapore and Australia for years, there is plenty we have yet to see as we usually only really explore our own cities as a tourist when we have visitors and. A great way to re-discover your own city is on an expert tour.
The first option is from Context Travel who offer tours for the intellectually curious ranging from a tour of the wall of Berlin with a Historian to an architecture tour of New York city including Cloisters and Medieval Art or a Food tour of Shanghai. All of their tours include a scholar in the subject, be it a Doctor, an Architect, a Historian, an Anthropologist or even an Archeologist.
Another fantastic option is to select a tour on Getyourguide. We have used them often and have never been disappointed. She will learn something new about the place she is exploring while meeting other tourists and exploring the area safely. All tours are star rated by people that have actually been on them, so it is obvious which are the best.
Bug Bite Thing
If she doesn’t want to lather her clothes in DEET, Bug Bite Thing is the perfect chemical-free and reusable solution alternative for outdoor adventurers to combat insect bites and stings. It’s one of the most useful travel gifts for women that love exploring nature and always get bitten.
The easy-to-use suction tool painlessly and effectively extracts insect saliva/venom from under the skin to eliminate itching, stinging, and swelling. Creams usually just mask this.
Bug Bite Thing is run by mompreneurs, mother/daughter team Ellen McAlister and Kelley Higney. They appeared on ABC’s ‘Shark Tank‘ and accepted an offer from Lori Greiner. Kelley is now a “mom on a mission” to raise awareness about harmful chemical products in the US that are banned in other countries.
Shipping: Check for shipping availability on Amazon.
Price: $9.99 on Amazon with the relevant shipping.
Bite Away Mosquito Bite Recovery
Similar to the Bug Bite Thing, this is a sustainable outdoor healthcare tech product that also makes for one of the most practical travel gifts for her. The product helps mitigate uncomfortable and inconvenient mosquito bites in just 3 to 5 seconds of use. It’s FDA cleared and chemical free and can be administered on expectant mothers, allergy sufferers, and children ages 2+.
What’s different from the above product is that it’s an electronic medical device with a ceramic tip that heats up the area around the skin, not suction. It’s a thermometer-sized device that is easily used by applying the device to the bite and pressing a button. The manufacturer, MibeTec, is a leading medical device company for local thermotherapy based in Berlin, Germany, and has expanded into the U.S.
Travel Menstrual Pads and Pantiliners
These travel packs of pantiliners and menstrual pads are handy resealable travel gifts for her that include three herb-infused pantiliners and winged pads for fresh, clean feminine care on the go. The pads come in three sizes: regular, super and overnight.
The Honey Pot Company’s founder Beatrice Dixon suffered from bacterial vaginosis when she was younger. After trying many products and not finding a solution, she created her own line of healthy, clean feminine hygiene products with a goal to provide other women with a healthy alternative to feminine care with products that are natural and free of chemicals, parabens, carcinogens and sulfates.
Dixon became 1 of the first 40 women of color to raise $1M in venture capital and was named one of Entrepreneur’s top 100 groundbreaking women entrepreneurs of 2019. She has also partnered with #HappyPeriod, a non-profit dedicated to providing menstrual hygiene kits to those who are homeless, low-income and/or living in poverty.
Price: From $18 for a pack of 12.
SelfSafe USB Emergency Identification Bracelet
SelfSafe is a stylish, sporty, water resistant USB emergency identification bracelet that holds all her important documents, or images. The device can store Protected Health Information (PHI) and comprehensive personal data such as medical, financial, insurance, travel documents, personal identifications and so on. This is a top travel gift for women that visit off-the-beaten-path destinations.
The device is so simple to use, just pop the 8GB USB out and place it into a PC, then use the drag-and-drop feature to add all the relevant info. The USB is encrypted, password protected and the information is only on the device (no Internet or Cloud activity) so no one will be able to access her personal details. The only downside is that Apple users will currently not be able to use this product as it is only PC compatible.
Claudia Grosz, the designer of the SelfSafe interface, holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Medical and Biological Illustration from the University of Michigan and has received the Vesalius Trust Certificate of Merit for Special Contribution to Medical Education from the Association of Medical Illustrators. You may have seen her anatomical charts on The Sopranos and House.
Shipping: Posted prices do not include tax or charges for shipping and handling.
A First Class Amenity Kit From eBay
Did you know you can buy real and unused First Class amenity kits from eBay? We were as surprised as you but it is probably the quirkiest gift you can get someone but also a useful one on a long flight.
Bose Noise Canceling Headset
There is no better way to ensure a sound flight (pun intended) than to get the one and only, the most popular, noise canceling headset: Bose.
Even Sam Gardner (Keir Gilchrist’s character in the Netflix series Atypical) wears the black Bose Quietcomfort 35 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones.
This is the brand most frequent travelers swear by. She can forget about crying babies, loud passengers, annoying cabin crew or terrible airline headsets through which she can’t even hear the movie, this is her passport to good night’s sleep. They even come with their own traveling case and can be folded to take less space. Definitely one of the most essential travel gifts for her.
Psi Acupressure Wrist Bands
Motion sickness is a major factor in turning an amazing adventure into a really crappy experience. Nausea from travel is encountered by a large majority of the population, but with this tiny little band, she can stave off all illness no matter whether its windy and bumpy roads, stop/go traffic, air turbulence or sea sickness. The FDA-cleared Psi Bands are stylish adjustable acupressure wrist bands that come in an array of fun colors and designs.
It’s a clinically proven drug-free alternative to tablets, that is affordable, waterproof and easily packable. Use these cool travel gifts for her to show that you care about her health and well-being.
Psi Health Solutions, Inc. is a female-owned company, led by a talented mompreneur, that is committed to utilizing the latest research in proven complementary alternatives in order to provide high-quality, fashionable, comfortable, and affordable products that make a positive difference in people’s health.
Price: From $12.99
Adaptor With Universal Plug
A must have for any traveler, so one of the most important travel gifts for her. Adaptors with universal plugs are not only important to have when traveling to different countries, but are even useful when you’d like to charge your devices at the airport.
Novice nomads usually learn the importance of an adapter the hard way – there is nothing more frustrating than having a plug socket, but no convertor!
This one is great because it has 4 USB ports as well as a regular universal plug changer.
A very nifty little device holder on the go for those who fly at the back of the plane and can bring their own entertainment system, without having to hunch down or end up with horrible neck pain from looking down at a small screen.
The device can hold a glass, a pad or mobile phone and allows for charging and headset. at the same time.
It’s nifty and clever, and it packs really flat and small, a fantastic gift for her (or anyone) to enjoy a comfortable flight.
A great gift for any traveler because it is practical, keeps your bag safe, and one can never have too many of.
Make sure that she gets a TSA-approved luggage lock for additional convenience. The one mentioned here is one of the most clever travel gifts for her as it has a way of alerting her if her bags were inspected by TSA staff.
Because it is vintage, cute and she can use the photos printed to send back home as postcards to let her loved ones know where she’s been.
She can even share the photos instantly with new friends she makes on the road. She can create a good old fashioned handwritten message with a picture.
Camera Lens Pen Cleaner
Grid-It Cable and Gadget Organizer
We think this is a great and necessary gift for women travelers. Although relatively cheap it is a genius companion for her traveling plans.
She is most likely tired of having cables getting messed up around her handbag and can never find the right one. Grid-It is the solution for packing up in a tidy manner, all her travel cables and chargers. Result!
Save Nature, Save the Planet
A few years ago, as Mar was living in Singapore, the sky became grey with the smoke blown into the country from the burning fires in Sumatra and Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo. The smoke, generated by the burning fires used to clear the jungle for palm oil, filled the air, making it impossible to breath.
Since then, that reality has not only persisted, it has worsened. Consumers are, after all, the only ones who can do something. If the people stopped palm oil consumption, we would send a strong signal to the brands fuelling this crisis.
Few organizations work hard under inhumane conditions to save as many orangutans as possible from the flames as their homes disappear under the fires every year. These organizations are overwhelmed and lacking in resources. We cannot think of a better travel gift for her in this climate than a donation to these organizations. It is also important to teach our children, the future generation, of the gift of giving and saving our planet. The Rainforest Action Network allows her to become a member or make a once-off donation.
If we burn down their habitat, the poor orangutans will burn down too and extinguish with our planet. Teach our kids about this important cause by making a donation on their behalf.
Just like the color in ceramic mug we mentioned earlier, this scratch map is a super fun and interactive travel gift for her.
How it works is that after she visits a country, she then comes home and scratches that country off on the map. We love ours which is this golden one.
It’s great for solo female travelers trying to visit every country in the world like the brave and wonderful Audrey Walsworth.
Name a Star
The International Star Registry offers you one of the quirkiest travel gifts for her, naming a star. Give the star her name, her child’s name, her spouses name or maybe a cryptic name that only you two know for as little as $54 (and has been the same price for years). It is a very affordable yet pretty impressive gift. She can always spend her evenings trying to locate the star if you also get her a telescope.
National Geographic Donation
The National Geographic Society works with presence on the ground to support conservation efforts across the globe and it is entirely financed by the subscription and the sales on their store, plus donations from people. Make a donation on behalf of that solo female traveler in your life who cares deeply about conservation. They make it really easy to donate. National Geographic will even send a letter to her on the sender’s behalf. Donate here.
Travel Fund Bank
What better affordable travel gift for her if she wants to start saving for her journeys, especially for the younger solo female adventurist.
We love this small travel fund bank.
One of the most useful travel gifts for her when traveling is a small bottle of essential oil, for example, one of these six.
Essential oils come in handy in many situations while traveling.
For example, the lavender oil helps her to sleep on the plane, the tea tree oil helps relieve irritated skin (for example if she has eczema or dry skin from flying) and the gift set of six is a cute and affordable travel present for women.
If the solo female traveler in your life loves wine, then these Wine Skins will come in handy to make sure that the wine bought abroad makes it back in one piece.
They are also reusable, we know because every time we travel we bring some local wines home, from Macedonia, Spain, Italy, the US…
Not everybody is like us, traveling around with a heavy camera with four lenses, a GoPro, a drone, two phones… most people are happy with phone photos.
Take them to the next level with this set of lenses for smartphones.
Clipa 2 Bag Hanger
Definitely the most practical travel gift for her that she will constantly use when is this nifty bag hanger. By keeping her bag off the floor not only will she prevent it from getting dirty, she will also be able to extend its life. It’s minimal, stylish and extremely effective holding up to 33 lbs (15 kgs) with just a half an inch of space (it only weighs 1.6 oz or 45 grams).
There is an audible auto close feature, so when she hears the “click” she knows it’s secure. The Clipa 2 Bag Hanger works great in restaurants, hostels, hiking, camping and in bathroom stalls. There are 7 finishes to choose from and it can even double as a bracelet so no more searching through her backpack to find it. This is the second generation of the Clipa which means it’s 25% lighter, slimmer and wider and can last for up to 10 years.
Spotify Premium Membership
This one is for all the music lovers out there. How does unlimited streaming of over 50 million songs sound? Pretty good right? She can either get a 6-month or yearly premium membership or even gift cards. And the best part is that she can download her playlists to listen to without internet connection. Sold.
Get a luggage scale for her so she can weigh her luggage and makes sure she isn’t overweight, especially in those stingy low cost airlines.
Pass on the tip that it’s best to wear all her clothes from the start so she doesn’t make a scene at the airport if she knows she will be over the allowance and doesn’t want to pay for the extra.
First Aid Kit
We know, nobody likes to talk about the boring practicalities, but this First Aid kit is fun and cool and she will be sure to have everything she needs from healing a hangover to a simple headache from jetlag.
Sometimes, the best gifts are actually the most thoughtful and, when in need, this one will come in very handy!
If you’re keen to put together a custom First Aid Kit, read this post for everything you’ll need to include.
First Cup Morning Series
Sometimes travel can get lonely or overwhelming and she can find herself pretty low. This is the perfect pick-her-up to get her day headed in the right direction. First Cup Morning Series is a six minute daily audio clip to help start her day with intention, affirmation and purpose. No matter where she is in the world, she can rise and shine to breathing exercise, slices of wisdom from experts, and general questions to ponder.
Chelsea Kane is a remote Public Relations Consultant, Copywriter, and Founder of First Cup Morning Series. After a career as a consultant to major luxury fashion companies in New York City she founded First Cup Morning Series to help clients start their day with intention.

Travel journals are an amazing gift because they serve as a planning tool and journal at the same time. These are ideal to register all your travel information and collect travel memories: places you went to, food you ate, experiences and feelings.
Recommended by Josie, our group member, who said: “I’m loving these trip planners with journaling space I bought in the summer and now when friends are asking me for recommendations for places to visit or eateries I can just refer to my notes”.
This skincare kit is the perfect gift! Ideal for traveling because of its to-go sizes, this kit includes everything to keep the skin of your loved traveler healthy and with a beautiful natural glow.
Take her skin type into consideration when choosing a kit, we love this one by LANEIGE for combination to oily skin, it has a cleanser, essence, hydro gel, mask and lip mask.
Do you know of any amazing gifts for her we should add / recommend?
