Gifts for the Stylish Traveller

stylish travel gifts

Looking for a gift for a luxury backpacker?

Buy them something useful and pretty for their adventures! I always prefer to receive something that I can take with me wherever I go, or something that I will really use, such as a Spotify premium membership or a Amazon voucher for kindle books.

Here are our top gifts for the stylish traveller in your life. Or just for you, because, you know, it’s Christmas!

1 – The Happiness Planner

The best and prettiest journal around. I can’t choose between the spiral bound or the leather diary. Both equally gorgeous! From $56 from the Happiness Planner. You can get a similar one in the UK here.

2 – Herbivore Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask

I always take a good face mask when I travel to save my skin, usually a clay mask which gives a deep cleanse. This one from Herbivore Botanicals is scrumptious. UK folks, this Dior one is divine.

3 – Ugg Slippers

For a little luxury when away from home, slip into these after a long day for a restful evening.

4 – Memory Foam Travel Pillow

Want to get them something they will really love you for? This will make long haul economy flights feel like first class.

5 – Travel Pouches

These are so useful and so pretty. Use them to stash everything from make-up to documents. $16-$36 in a variety of colours from Truffle. Londoners will LOVE this Harrods one, perfect for a chic getaway.

6 – Moonglow by Michael Chabon

I am reading Moonglow at the moment and it is epic. The perfect travel read for the adventurer in your life.

7 – Poolside by Slim Aarons

Poolside with Slim Aarons is perfect for igniting wanderlust from your coffee table. The travel lover or Instagram-babe must have!

8 – Patron Cafe Mini (50ml)

A few of these in their stocking will make someones long-haul flight a lot more pleasant as they are small enough to take through security in a liquids bag ( if they don’t guzzle them on Christmas day that is!) Not their tipple? Find their favourite here from this HUGE selection, or pop into your local liquor store.

9 – “Girls With Class Don’t Need A Glass” Hipflask

This flask is perfect for a gin and tonic when on the go.

10 – Set of 3 Travel Facial Oils

The perfect size for travel, these facial oils suit every skin type. The perfect pamper wherever you are. $49 from Herbivore Botanicals. This triple performing facial oil from Benefit is also sold in miniature – perfect for a stocking filler!

11 – Luxury Cami Short Pyjamas Set

So pretty, and perfect for a tropical holiday, or just pretending you are on one! Derek Rose pyjamas are beautiful, and such good quality they will withstand every dodgy laundry service a traveller might come across on their adventures! For chilly nights in the UK, this set, also Derek Rose, is divine.

12 – “She Believed She Could, So She Did” Cuff

For a traveller you can’t go wrong with jewellery and this bracelet is beautiful. Plus it is a great price – $35 for gold and $25 for silver from Nordstrom. Available in the UK here.

13 – Fjallraven Kanken Mini Backpack

A great size for your carry-on, with lots of pockets. I love the straps, as you can carry it in your hand or on your back, and it comes in absolutely loads of great colours. $60 from Fjallraven or available here in the UK.

14 – Lifeproof Phone Case

This is the most durable and reliable phone case for the adventuring types. Plus it comes in pink! AND it’s in the sale.

15 – Travel Scarf

The most useful travel gift on this list. Stash your passport and change in the secret zip for extra security when you travel. They are $55, but if you buy more than one you get a good discount which is great if you want one for yourself as well! From cool travel brand Speakeasy.
