Gift Guide: 10 Gifts for Women

Gift Guide: 10 Gifts for Women

This holiday season, give the woman in your life a gift that she can take with her around the world.

Shopping for a woman who's a travel fiend this holiday season? While gifting an actual trip may not be realistic, you can still wow her with the perfect present for her trips. Help the well traveled woman in your life hit the road with the trendiest and most useful travel gear, clothes, and luggage, so she can rack up more miles in the next year. These 10 travel gifts are practical, multi-functional, and pretty, to boot.

For the Over-Packer

The Deviate Travel Pack 60L W from Eagle Creek is perfect for indecisive travelers who can’t seem to downsize their packing lists. The clip-on day backpack that attaches to a larger travel pack makes it easy to cram in a few extra clothes and gadgets and still have a lightweight bag option for conquering day trips. This Deviate pack also comes in a women's specific design with ergonomically contoured shoulder straps and hip belt, giving this pack a comfortable, gender-specific, fit.

If you want to add something extra to your gift, roll up a pair or two of Lucy’s versatile Perfect Core Leggings and put them inside the pack. They go with everything, and the length is perfect for climbing, jumping, and running in cool weather or in areas where she’ll want her skin protected from bugs and branches. You can’t go wrong with the basic black color.

For the Commuter

Eagle Creek’s No Matter What™ Classic Backpack is not only a great travel pack, but it's particularly helpful for city dwellers or suburbanites who commute to work every day by train, car, or foot. It has a compartment for electronics and is water repellant, so the only thing that will get ruined on a wet walk will be her hair. Surprise her with a pair of Vans Slip-Ons that are stylish enough to wear all day long in the office or when she's out exploring a new city.

For the Weekender

Eagle Creek’s No Matter What™ Flatbed 28 can hang with the best of them. It has large, rugged wheels that will handle any terrain and lockable zippers to help protect her stuff when she doesn’t have her eyes on it. If she’s always running to catch a plane, opt for the carry-on size, so she can get by security without a second thought.

For the Germ-a-phobe

Help her keep her unused gear clean while on the go with a Pack-It Specter™ Shoe Sac. It’s the perfect little compartment to keep dirty sneaks quarantined, or to stash a few pairs of sandals (like these Reef Rover Catch flip-flops). Bonus: The shoe sac is machine washable, so she can toss it in the washing machine at the end of her trip to avoid stinking up her suitcase on her next adventure.

For the Luxury Vacationer

Is she starting off 2017 with a cruise or a trip to a tropical island? The Pack-It Specter™ On Board will keep all her essentials organized, and it may even save some extra space for you on the bathroom sink, if you travel with her! This organizer has a non-slip hook for hanging that can be easily stowed away, as well as seven slip pockets and two zippered ones for max organization. Stash this Kipling USB Phone Chargerin it so she never has to worry about forgetting one at home.
