Gift Guide for a Wanderluster

Looking for a holiday gift for the girl who’s always on the go? There are tons of gift guides out there, but I want to share a few things I've come across this year that stood out as special.

We travelers have very specific needs, and since we’re always saving money for our next plane ticket, travel essentials often go un-purchased. We're also wanderers - we love anything dreamy, magical, and one-of-a-kind. So from practical to just plain fun; and stocking stuffers to splurge-items, here’s a list of things that any wanderluster would love to find under the tree!

(Everything below I genuinely love and think would make a perfect gift. I wasn’t paid, given, or asked to promote any of these products - I just think they're magical.)

 

A Dreamy Sleep Mask

Every traveler needs a sleep mask for her long-haul flights! While she might have a collection of freebies from the airlines, a nice quality, more personal option is sure to bring a smile to her face. I recommend searching Etsy for fun and handmade options. This Holly Golightly inspired mask would give any Audrey Hepburn fan the sweetest dreams.

Inspiring Charms

Cozy Socks for the Plane

One of my absolute musts when traveling is a pair of cozy socks. I wear mine on the plane to keep toasty, and love having them in the hotel since slippers are too bulky to pack. Remind your girl how unique she is with these cozy, cutesy, unicorn socks.

Clip Lens 

This little clip packs a lot of power. It turns your iPhone’s camera in a Fisheye, Wide Angle, or Macro Lens. It only weighs an once, so your traveler can still take some epic spots on days she’s not toting her SLR. And to make it even dreamier - it comes in rose gold.

Travel Jewelry Box

Any traveler will tell you, packing up jewelry is a pain. Necklaces arrive tangled, there's never a good way to store rings, and earrings can get lost in your bag! This chic little case has the perfect set up to safely store and organize her essentials, and is small enough to pop into her tote.

Passport Case

This is something every traveler wants, but would rather spend the money on plane tickets! There are endless choices out there - so pick her favorite color, quote, or monogram it with her initials. As a francophile, this gold foil au revoir case makes me want to book a trip to Paris on the spot!

The Ultimate Travel Bag

In my opinion, this iis THE tote that is sure to please any traveler. Designed by MZ Wallace with a travel in mind, this is made of water and stain-resistant, nylon so it will never look tattered. It can be folded, rolled, and even crushed and never lose it’s shape. The padded handles are long enough to comfortably sling onto your shoulder, and the inside is loaded with pockets and pouches for storing everything you need. Most importantly, it's light as air and zips closed across the top. This bag comes in 3 sizes, several colors and even a few patterns. If you're not sure what to pick- you can never go wrong with solid black.
