7 Great Travel Gifts for Women

Travel Gifts for Women

You may find it tricky to shop for that woman who is always on the go. Whether she’s globetrotting for business or for the sheer joy of it, it can be difficult to find the perfect gift for someone on the move. After all, you don’t want to weigh her down with more snow globes. Fear not! Here are 7 travel accessories for women that make great gifts for that adventurous woman in your life.


Travel Alarm Clock

You can never go wrong with a travel alarm clock. Whether she’s got to get to that business meeting in Toyko, or catch the first train to Marseilles, being awake at the right time is a key part of travelling.

The more elaborate and intelligent the travel alarm, the better.

A great choice is the World Time Alarm Clock, which can help you keep track of what time it is in 16 pre-set time zones.

TourSafe Backpack/Sling

Another great choice is a travel daypack. Get one with enhanced security features such as the TourSafe Backpack/Sling, so that she feels safe wherever she’s going. Pull a zipper, and it converts automatically from a backpack into a sling that hangs across her chest and around the waist.

Anything with slash-proof panels and cut-proof straps is perfect. Hidden inside compartments and plenty of zippered pouches to store stuff is even better.

Folding Noise Cancelling Headphones

Anyone who spends a lot of time on planes or trains needs a set of Folding Noise Cancelling Headphones. iPods are great, but anyone who flies knows that they don’t drown out the engine noise or the noise in the cabin, which means you have to listen to your music loudly if you want to hear anything. Noise Cancelling headphones block out everything else, making it easier to hear your music, and to sleep. They come in really fun colors too!

First Class Travel Organizer

A toiletry organizer is a great idea as well, especially one that can hang in a bathroom, and comes with a detachable pouch for carry-on liquids, like the First Class Travel Organizer.The multiple pockets keep contents in order, and there's even a removable mirror and TSA-accepted 3-1-1 pouch.

Nothing says, “I care about you” quite like helping someone never have to deal with the hassle of liquids at airport security ever again.

GoLite Rolling Tote

Every gal needs a great suitcase, and odds are, your special traveller isn’t going to spend the dollars to get herself a new one. Here are some tips for the perfect bag. It needs wheels and a retractable handle. She’ll need to be able to carry it on. It will need plenty of space inside, with pockets that zip, and dividers. It needs to be durable. Get her something like a GoLite Rolling Tote, and get it in her favorite bright color, so if she does have to check her bag, it doesn’t blend into the sea of black suitcases turning past on the luggage carousel.

Lightweight Travel Blanket

Every global traveller knows that one of the biggest issues on the road can be getting a good sleep - on a plane, or in a hotel full of unusual sounds.

Put together a little sleep package to help out. Include a sleep mask to help block out light, a set of Hearos Earplugs to block the sound, an inflatable neck pillow to rest her head, and a Lightweight Travel Blanket.

She'll be ready to go to sleep anywhere, and arrive so much more relaxed!!

iPad or a Kindle

If you really, really, really love her, get her an iPad or a Kindle and stock it up with dozens of great books.

With a one week battery life (two weeks with the wifi turned off) the Amazon Kindle can supply her reading needs for even the longest journeys. There's some crossover with the Kindle, but with the versatility of the iPad,  she has a lot more options besides just reading to keep her occupied while waiting for her flight.

She'll think of you every time she pulls out her new favorite accessory!

A cat keychain is easy to carry and can be an effective self defense weapon.

Hi Jim Miller! True! Many keychains may also be a self defense weapon. Women may best take note of "danger signs" and learn safe travel practices so we don't get to use them. :-)
