Valentine’s Day Gifts For Female Travelers

Her Adventures | Greatest Valentine's Day Gifts For Female Travelers

What makes the perfect gift for travel lovers depends on each person individually. Maybe they are new to traveling and don’t have all the essentials yet. Maybe they are seasoned travelers and the perfect gift will have to be something very unique. And what would be a great gift for budget travelers? If your head is swimming by now, don’t worry. This valentine’s day gift guide covers everything you need and more!

Travel Essentials

Travel gifts are a great way to show love on Valentine’s day. Consider these travel essentials for your special person.

1. Luggage

The first thing one needs when going on a trip is something to stow all their stuff in. A nice, matching luggage travel set is perfect for the occasion, and one of the best gifts for someone who’s just starting out on their adventures. The Travelers Club Midtown Hardside 4-Piece Luggage Travel Set consists of one 26″ spinner suitcase, one 20″ carry-on spinner luggage, one boarding tote, and one travel kit toiletry bag case. It comes in five different colors, but we recommend the rose gold version. There’s nothing worse than a black suitcase that looks like literally every other suitcase at the baggage claim!

2. Luggage Tags

It’s essential that each piece of checked luggage has luggage tags with at least the traveler’s name and phone number on it. Be smart and buy luggage tags that catch the eye, so they can be easily spotted at the baggage claim.

3. Passport holders

Our poor passports always end up recklessly stuck in some tight space, and start looking worse for the wear quickly. That’s why a passport cover is a great gift and even better, it comes at an affordable price. They come in various colors and prints. Get a simple passport holder, or even a travel-themed one.

4. Travel Laundry Bag

Dirty clothes need to go somewhere! The best place for them is a travel laundry bag. That’s maybe not the most romantic travel gift, but hey, keeping dirty clothes from stinking up all the clean clothes is… almost romantic? These bags are large enough to hold a few loads of laundry, and they keep all odors inside.

5. Packing Cubes

Packing cubes take the packing game to a pro level. They keep everything nicely in place, much better than arriving at a destination and opening the suitcase to discover utter chaos. Clothes will stay wrinkle-free and packing cubes guarantee optimal use of space.

6. Shoe Bags

Sticking smelly, dirty shoes in with the rest of the luggage is simply a bad idea. Reusable shoe bags are the answer! They keep the dirt off clothes and are better for the environment than plastic bags.

7. TSA Approved Travel Bottle Kit

A vacation doesn’t mean a vacation from caring for our skin. But a lot of times we don’t need to bring our whole skin care regimen with us. If the woman in your life wants to pack her creams or lotions into her carry on, then those bottles can be no larger than 3.4 ounces. Solve that problem with these TSA approved travel bottle kits!

8. Clothes Steamer

Speaking of being wrinkle-free (get it?): some items of clothing just can’t be stuck in a bag and arrive in perfect shape. For those who travel with nicer clothing or items that just hold a grudge when they’re not hung up, a clothes steamer is a very practical gift. It’s small and compact, ideal for traveling.

9. Neck Pillow

We love this practical valentine’s day travel gift! There’s nothing worse than falling asleep on the plane, train, or car and waking up with a neck ache. What a way to start a vacation! Step up the neck pillow game get a memory foam neck pillow instead of one of those inflatable ones that are decidedly too uncomfortable.

10. Airplane phone holder mount

Sure, airlines offer a certain selection of movies and TV shows on most flights. But for those who just downloaded all the episodes of their favorite shows to their phone and really want to watch them in the air, an airplane phone holder mount is a great idea. They clip onto the desk tray, offer 360 degree rotation, and keep phones safe and sound.

11. Portable power bank

A portable power bank is the right gift for literally every traveler (except for the one who already owns one of these!). Not running out of juice while trying to take the most amazing traveler photos using a smartphone is priceless!

12. Travel cable organizer

Truth is: we generally bring way too many electronics with us when we travel. And they all need their individual cables, because the companies aren’t nice enough to come up with a one fits all cable. Rather than having those cables in a big pile inside the carry on, one can put them all into a travel cable organizer. There every cable has it’s space, they don’t get tangled up, and are easy to locate.

13. Travel adapter

A travel adapter is one of the most essential items for any traveler going abroad. Imagine not being able to charge all the electronics. Yikes! That would get the heart rate up! To prevent this give the gift of electricity to your special woman this valentine’s day!

14. Noise reducing headphones

Noise reducing or noise canceling headphones are a game changer on during travel, especially to those who are sensitive to noise. That constant droning of the airplane or the train can cause a lot of stress to the body. Plus, it’s hard to hear the TV with that amount of background noise. The best news? The time when those cost several hundred dollars are over! Make sure to get the wireless kind, since they take up a lot less space inside the carry on.

15. Mini jewelry case

The same thing that’s true for cables holds true for jewelry. There’s nothing worse than trying to get the knot out of that beautiful necklace! And we all want to look polished while traveling (one of our most popular articles covers how to do that!), which makes bringing jewelry along a necessity. Small items can be kept safe in a mini jewelry case.

16. Portable Perfume Spray Bottle

Your special person may not just want to look polished, but also smell nice while traveling. But bringing along a whole bottle of perfume is impractical and adds a lot of weight to the luggage. The solution? A portable perfume spray bottle in which they can fill just the right amount for the time they are away.

17. Mini travel first aid kit

Preparation is key! Minor accidents can occur, and the best thing to do is to carry a mini travel first aid kit. Just in case!

18. Luggage scale

A luggage scale is a crucial travel essential. Fees for bags that exceed the weight limit can be excessive. And that luggage scale should absolutely be packed. Impulse book buying at the airport and extensive souvenir shopping can do a number on that luggage weight!

19. Travel journal

We travel to create memories, but what happens when those memories begin to fade? A good way to prevent that is to always travel with a travel journal. It’s a very thoughtful gift!


Her Adventures | Valentine's Day Gifts For Female Travelers

Is the person you are buying for the kind of girl who loves to travel on a budget, or someone who’s a seasoned traveler and already has all the essentials? If that’s so, we have some great valentine’s day gift ideas for her!

20. A hotel room

One thing a budget traveler is sure to skimp on are accommodations. Why not get her a nice hotel room for a night? If you know her destinations, look at the options on platforms such as www.booking.com to find the perfect room. If she prefers the fun atmosphere of a hostel, you can have a look at what’s on tap at Hostelworld.

21. A Spa Day

All girls love spa days and being pampered. It’s a fact. But, indulging in one can really cut into the budget. Once you know where she’s going, why not buy her a gift certificate to schedule a massage or a facial, to give her vacation that special touch.

22. An experience

Most every place offers great tours and experiences for visitors. Budget travelers will most often skip those to save money. Make her happy and give her a memory that will last a lifetime! Platforms such as Viator or Tripadvisor offer tours and experiences all around the world.

23. Girls Who Travel Budget Travel Toolkit

Did you know that 52% of women say money is the #1 reason stopping them from traveling? Budget travel is an art form! Her Adventures did all the research, so you don’t have to. Give her the gift of budget travel with the Girls Who Travel Budget Travel Toolkit.

24. A gift card

Maybe a gift card isn’t the most romantic thing you could pick up for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, but it’s the next best thing if you aren’t 100% sure of what to get. And despite its bad reputation, a gift card isn’t necessarily boring. There are great options for female budget travelers out there, giving them the chance to get a head start on planning their next adventure. Here are some of our favorites:

25. Luggage Cup Holder

This is guaranteed the one thing your travel lover never knew she needed. Simply attach the luggage cup holder to the handle of the carry on and solve the problem that carrying a coffee cup, a bottle of water, a purse and the carry on poses.

26. Cup holder expander

Not all journeys have to be made by plane! For those who love road trips, the cup holder expander is a lifesaver. Simply stuck in the car’s drink holder, it expands to hold two beverages and offers a small tray for lunch.

27. Airplane footrest

Being comfy on a plane is hard, unless you fly first class. The airplane footrest is a small hammock that attaches to the sides of the tray table, and is adjustable to any height. Any small comfort added to a long plane ride makes life so much better!

28. The ultimate sleep mask

A sleep mask is definitely helpful is many situations. Not just on planes, trains, or long car rides, but also in hotel rooms with flimsy curtains. Step up the sleep mask game a notch and get her a sleep mask she can pair with her smart phone to play soothing music, an audiobook, or her favorite podcast (hint hint: we’ve got a great travel podcast!).

29. A flat water bottle

Bringing along a water bottle is a good idea for the environment (less plastic water bottles we need to buy) and is easy on the wallet. But oftentimes these water bottles are bulky and simply take up too much room. The solution? A flat water bottle!

30. Adapter for wireless headphones

There is nothing, we repeat: NOTHING more frustrating that getting on a plane, snuggling into your seat, getting out your headphones – and realizing you packed the wireless kind and can’t watch that movie you’ve been looking forward to. Prevent that from happening to your special person and get her an adapter for wireless headphones!

31. Tinggly valentine’s experience gift

We promise you’ll get bonus points for this experience box. The Tinggly Valentine’s Experience Gift is a kind of gift for both of you. Here’s how it works: pick a box to be sent to your special lady. She can book one experience for two out of more than 1,000 options in over 100 countries.

32. Instant camera

Sure, we all carry our cellphones with their cameras around at all times. But if you ever had a Polaroid camera, you know, back in the olden days, you’ll remember how much fun it was to get the instant gratification of a printed picture. Today, instant cameras are much more affordable than they were back then, and it’s a fun way to share memories with the new friends we make along the way, but also to decorate the home with upon our return.

33. Smartphone camera lenses

For those planning on acing the traveler photos game using a smartphone (we’ve got the top tips on how to do you that) a set of smartphone lenses is a fantastic idea, allowing them to step up their photography by a notch.

34. Action camera

Is your sweetheart the kind of girl who goes on wild adventures? Consider getting her an action camera! The GoPro Hero 12 produces insanely great quality pictures, and smooth video, no matter if filmed from a bike, a kayak, or a snowboard. BUT! Action cameras can be had on a budget these days, too. So if you think you will only use it once in a blue moon, opt for a more affordable option such as the AKASO EK7000 Pro 4K Action Camera.

35. Waterproof floating phone protector case

Oftentimes our phone can be our lifeline out there in the world, especially when we travel to a foreign country. Therefore it’s imperative we protect it as much as we can. A waterproof phone case makes sure the phone is safe from rain, a mishap involving a puddle, or splashes at the pool. For those traveling to beach destinations, or going on boats, the case should be waterproof and floating.

36. Personal safety alarm

A personal safety alarm is a thoughtful gift for those who love to travel solo, and it works for many occasions: mother’s day, a birthday, or valentine’s day. She’s Birdie offers great devices, perfect for travel. Get 15% percent off with code HERADVENTURES15.

37. Scarf with hidden pocket

Since we are on the topic of safety: a scarf with a hidden pocket is an excellent way to carry cash, credit cards, or passports around without any pickpocket suspecting the place where these valuables are hidden, greatly adding to travel safety.

38. E-reader

An e-reader is a must for traveling book worms. While impulse book buying at the airport is nothing short of a hobby, traveling with books is the worst in terms of space and weight. A kindle or comparable e-reader will ensure she never runs out of reading material, no matter how long the vacation.

Travel from home gifts

Girls Who Travel

It’s a sad fact: we can’t always be on the road. Life happens, but we can travel from home! These gifts give that special touch to her home, reminding her of adventures to come.


It is that romantic time of year, so a romantic gift is called for. Travel by food this Valentine’s day, and take her to a new restaurant, so she can indulge in the cuisine she loves and rekindle fond memories. This is also a good opportunity to support a small business.

40. Coffee table book

Coffee table books don’t just look good, they are so inspiring! On a lazy Sunday afternoon, she can sit down with a nice hot beverage, leaf through the pages, and find her next destination. Get a coffee table book that aligns with her interest. That could be one covering the United States’ 50 states, one that covers the world’s most stunning remote locations, or the 100 hikes of a lifetime.

41. A photo book

Photo books are one of our favorite cute ideas. have you been on a trip with your special person? Pull together a selection of your favorite pictures and create a photo book. Websites like Shutterfly make the process very easy, and it’s a sweet gift that’ll last a lifetime.

42. Personalized world map

All travel enthusiasts love to talk about where they’ve been, what they’ve done, and what they loved about it. A personalized world map allows them to keep track of the places they have visited, and hanging up on the wall it’s a great conversation piece as well!

43. Travel T-Shirt

Wearing a favorite travel t-shirt while at home reminds us of adventures past and adventures to come. We love this ‘I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list‘ shirt so much.

44. Travel Hoodie

Girls Who Travel

No matter if she’s planning to travel to warm climates or cold ones, the journey there can be a bit chilly. The Girls Who Travel Explore hoodie will keep her warm and captures her adventurous spirit!

45. Bucket list journal

Is your valentine a planner? If so, get her a bucket list journal so she can start planning out future expeditions!

46. Travel subscription box

Subscription boxes are so much fun! Cratejoy offers plenty of options for travel subscription boxes. Explore locally, get international snacks, or travel by book!
