Our top 10 holiday gift ideas for women travellers:

 

1. Scratch Maps by Luckies of London

Available in a variety of sizes + colours, these roll-up wall maps can be hung, or framed + are essentially like a big scratch lottery ticket of all the places you've gone.

Gifted the avid traveller, they scratch off destinations they've travelled to, and keep doing so as they add places to the list. 

A fun item that is a great memorable piece for any avid wanderluster.

3. KalakiRiot Wanderlust-inspired Jewelry

Designed by the talented Tracy Dungo, Kalaki Riot jewelry is made for the wanderluster. 

An avid traveler herself, each design is infused with design elements that will make you feel like you're on a getaway. The best part? Everything is made in New York. 

My fav? The "Landry Ring" in rose gold. I'd personally love to stack a few of these on my fingers before my next adventure.

5. This is Ground, Travel Tech Accessories

If you've ever wondered what a 'cord taco' is, here you go. 

Made in Los Angeles from fine leather, the cord taco is designer to help those pesky cords from tangling while on the go.

Makes for a super cute stocking stuffer!

I'm also totally crushing on their ThisIsGround Mousepad and their Voyageur bag which has built in wifi. Say what? Amazing.

6. Danielle Laporte, Journals + More

I was first introduced to Canadian, Danielle Laporte through my friend Tracey. Danielle created the desire map, a book/workbook that was instrumental in my own decision to become an entrepreneur.

I highly recommend her Desire Map Journal as the perfect gift for any one in your life that is seeking to improve their lives. 

For a limited time, you can snag one of her limited-edition watercolour covered journals. Sweet!

7. Hudson + Bleecker Travel Bags

Love love love this faux-python embossed travel 'clutch' from New York-based brand, Hudson + Bleecker.

Store your cosmetics in it when en route, and empty out + use it as a clutch. Total double-duty!

8. Customized Luggage Tags

Nothing says jet set quite like a personalized, leather luggage tag. Totally boss, right?

I've been through hundreds of luggage tags over the years, and most are plasticy and cheap. I love the idea of gifting someone a personalized luggage tag.

Instead of personalizing, you could alternatively put a favourite quote. I found these cute ones on Etsy. Lots of options there.

9. Travel Beauty Kits from Detox Market

As any frequent traveler knows, bringing the comforts of home, on the road can lower anxiety and homesickness. 

Instead of using hotel shampoo, why not treat the jet setter in your life to a beautiful, natural and organic skin care set. My pick is the Kahina Giving Beauty set which features Argan Oil (a skincare fav) in a lotion, oil and cleanser.

10. Give the Gift of Memories, from Artifact Uprising

After many years of traveling, thousands of photos, that nowadays rarely, if ever, get printed, looking back one of my most favourite mementoes are the travel photo books I created from a couple of my first European trips.

They're a great keepsake / coffee table book.

In this day and age, we often upload photos to instagram, and poof, they're gone. 

Why not give a wanderluster in your life the gift of a photobook or album?

My pick is a company called Artifact Uprising which literally can take an instagram feed + integrate it into a keepsake book. The fold flat, softcovers are a great way to keep track of all the amazing adventures. Or give a gift card + let him or her choose their keepsake.
