The Ultimate Female Traveler Gift Guide // Travel gift ideas for the ladies in your life, including tech, fashion, luggage ideas, and more! // #readysetjetset #giftguide #holidayguide #shopping #travelgifts

Stocking Stuffers

Mini Moisturizers

Every gal could use a good travel-size moisturizer, especially with how drying airplanes can be. Try the Watermelon Pink Juice Moisturizer Mini from Glow Recipe (bonus, it’s also super cute!) or this magical duo from Drunk Elephant.

Sheet Masks

To reiterate, no girl likes a dehydrated face. How perfect is this travel skincare kit from Patchology? It’s everything one might need for some mid-flight pampering.


Not only are PopSockets the best for holding your phone, they also make a great phone stand to watch movies on planes. Check out this Holographic Snakeskin PopSockets as the perfect stocking stuffer.

Travel Hair Brush

The Tangle Teezer Compact Styler is the perfect hair brush for travel, and the holographic chrome edition is especially cute as a gift.


Skyroam Solis

Wifi and phone service abroad can really be a struggle. The Skyroam Solis wifi hotspot is your best friend for always getting a signal and having worry-free travels. Make sure to use discount code JETSET for 10% off your order at Skyroam!

Noise Canceling Headphones

There is no travel investment I’ve appreciated more than my Bose QuietComfort noise cancelling headphones. With all the travel on planes that I do, these are my best friend for long flights.

Instant Camera

Instant cameras are all the rage right now, and are super fun to bring on trips with you. Try the Kodak Printomatic, which is a digital camera that prints 2X3” photos, or the much beloved Fujifilm Instax. For the serious instant camera fan, try the Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 Viewfinder.

Portable Charger

I never leave the house without this Anker Portable Charger. It has so much juice that I can go several days without an outlet, which is especially useful on camping trips or when staying at hostels with limited plug options.

GoPro Hero 7

GoPro have really upped their game with the new Hero 7. I was able to take amazingly smooth videos with it during my adventure trip to the Dominican Republic, and even underwater, the photo quality is fantastic. If you’re planning any adventure trips, the GoPro Hero 7 is the perfect gift.

Mavic Drone

Take to the skies with the DJI Mavic Air - the perfect travel-size drone for every adventurer!

Beauty, Skin, and Hair Care

Travel Size Hair Tools

Get the Mighty Mini Jet Set Kit from Amika, complete with a mini hairdryer (with attachments!) and mini straightener in a cute print and a travel bag for them to go in. Amika also sells their Polished Perfection Straightening Brush in a travel size edition, which is super cool.

Lip Mask

No lie, I put this Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask on morning and night to prevent chapped lips during all my travels. Slap it on every night before you go to bed and your lips will never get dry!

Skincare Kit

This is the ultimate skincare kit from Drunk Elephant, and conveniently a lot of the products in it are travel-sized too.

Foreo Luna Mini

The Foreo Luna Mini 2 is the perfect face cleansing device for travel. Your skin will love you for it.

Sleep Set

This Beauty Sleep Collection from Slip features a silk pillowcase and sleep mask so you can get more restful sleep and healthier skin and hair. Bonus: bring the eye mask on flights for the best sleep possible.


Carry-On Suitcase

The Oh Joy collection from Calpak are some of the cutest suitcases I’ve ever seen. I think my favorite though has to be this Calpak X Oh Joy! 20-Inch Hardshell Spinner in a super fun confetti print. It’s definitely an eye catcher!

Packing Cubes

And if you’re a fan of the above, why not also get the Calpak X Oh Joy! Confetti Packing Cubes to match as well? Packing cubes are one of my biggest trips to an easier trip, and you might as well get ones that are cute. She’ll love you for it!

Laptop Backpack

The Calpak Kaya Laptop Backpack is the perfect stylish companion for any journey. The 15-inch size is great because it’ll fit almost any laptop, and it comes in several gorgeous color options.

Neck Pillow

The Trtl Pillow is my personal favorite option for sleeping on planes. It comes in lots of colors and packs down pretty small in your bag since it’s not stuffed. I love how much support it provides for my neck!

Passport Case

Every gal loves a good passport cover. Why not try this matching Anthropologie Luggage Tag & Passport Cover Set featuring a world map, or this adorable Clear Skies Ahead Travel Set.


Stylish Camera Bag

Every traveling lady photographer wants a cute camera bag - it’s a fact! I love Gatta Bag, especially as they’re a small company founded by female travel blogger. If you’re looking for a backpack, try the Christie Tan. For a shoulder bag, the Camille Rosewood is adorable.

Going Places Watch

This Kate Spade Going Places watch is my absolute favorite watch and is perfect for any female traveler. The watch features a pink map of Europe against a dark blue background. And if you need something to go with it, this Kate Spade USA Map Scarf is a super cute companion piece!

Travel Umbrella

Every traveler needs a good umbrella, so it might as well be this beautiful pink Colloquial Umbrella that is ready for any Instagram shot.
