Travel-Inspired Stocking Fillers Under £15
Whether you’re loading up on stocking fillers or you simply don’t want to break the bank, take a look at these travel gifts for women under £15, which she is sure to love!
Pretty Patterned Face Mask
No one’s going anywhere without a face mask for a while. So why not treat the travel lover in your life to a pretty patterned face mask to add to their collection? That means they can finally ditch the awful disposable ones they might be using, which aren’t great for the environment!
Wanderlusty Enamel Pin
Who doesn’t love opening cute little gifts found inside stockings or hiding among Christmas tree branches? An enamel pin is perfect for this and there are so many travel-inspired designs to choose from like these boarding pass pins, this pin with a wanderlust mountain scene on it, and this pretty “Wanderer” enamel pin.
Handmade HopeForExcel Gifts
We’ve recently discovered this local seller on Etsy who makes beautiful African-inspired greeting cards and jewellery – with all profits going to a charity that supports five primary schools in the poorest parts of Nairobi. So at the same time as buying a unique travel-inspired stocking filler, you’ll also be supporting a great cause! You can find her cards and gifts on Etsy, or read more about this project here.
Clear Cosmetics Bag
Help the chic traveller in your life ditch the one-off plastic bags used in airport security by buying them a clear cosmetics bag that they can use time and time again. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also means they won’t have to waste precious time at the airport transferring their toiletries into a plastic bag. They’ll be security-ready before they’ve even left the house!
Take a look at these ones, which are as pretty as they are useful:
Scott and I have also recently bought this set of colourful travel bottles, which are good quality and already come inside a clear cosmetics bag that can be used over and over again. We definitely recommend them as a useful stocking filler!
Makeup Travel Mirror
Oh how times have changed since I first started travelling! Today, you can buy makeup travel mirrors like this pretty rose gold one, which fold up oh-so-neatly and even have little LED beauty spotlights inside them! Useful, pretty, and perfect as a stocking filler for travel lovers!
Travel-Sized Toiletries From Her Favourite Brand
Okay, they’ve got a clear cosmetics bag and makeup travel mirror; now they need their favourite toiletries and cosmetics! If the travel lover in your life has a favourite beauty brand, find out whether their products come in bottles of less than 100ml (like Sanctuary Spa’s products inside this kit) – and just like that, you’ve got a whole bunch of stocking fillers she can use on her next getaway!
In-Flight Essentials Kit
Whether she’s travelling this year, next year or beyond, you can never go wrong with an in-flight essentials kit. Especially this year, hand sanitiser and other health products are even more essential when travelling, so a kit like this is sure to be a hit! You could put everything together yourself, or you can buy ready-made kits like the ones from Pinch Provisions or from various Etsy sellers like this one.
Shampoo bars are a fabulous travel gift for women (and men, actually!) for two reasons. They help to reduce plastic waste and they don’t count towards your 100ml liquid allowance if travelling hand luggage only. There are lots of cosmetics brands to choose from, but if you’re not sure which to go for, then I’d either go with something from Lush or this orange and ginger one from Amazon.
Collapsible Water Bottle
A collapsible water bottle is another stocking filler we recommend for travel lovers as they help you to drink more, save a bit of money and roll up into a small size when they’re empty, so you’re not taking up unnecessary space in your suitcase or backpack. Check out this one on Amazon as it’s got great reviews and won’t bust the bank!
Personalised Leather Luggage Tags
How lovely are these personalised leather luggage tags? I bought a matching his and hers set for Scott and I a couple of Christmases ago and loved them. Sadly, I’ve lost mine already – but I’ll definitely be getting some more again soon. Such a great stocking filler!
Personalised Passport Holder
Why not also buy her a personalised passport holder to match her new luggage tags? Or you could go for a completely fresh look like this chic millennial pink one, this pretty floral design or this fun travel quote design. The choices are endless!
Candles That Smell Like Places
What kind of stocking doesn’t also have a few novelty gifts thrown in amongst all the practical ones? Here’s an idea for travel lovers: candles that smell like places! There are websites like Homesick that specialise in these kinds of candles, or you can do it a little cheaper by going “unofficial”. For example, transport them to Hawaii with candles that smell like pineapple or coconut (or both!), or to Canada with maple syrup candles, or to Spain with Seville orange scented candles. And if they’re feeling homesick for the UK? Try Earl Grey tea scented candles.
Compression Packing Cubes
Packing cubes are a great budget travel gift if you know she doesn’t have any already, or if she’s clearly struggling with the concept of “packing light”! And compression packing cubes are well worth the extra bit of money as you can fit loads more clothes in them than standard packing cubes. Check out these pretty pink and gold ones, which are useful and oh-so-chic at the same time!
Ultra Soft Travel Pillow
Okay, so you may struggle with fitting a travel pillow inside her stocking (unless it’s a big one!), but they’re a great gift under £15 all the same. Go for an ultra-soft travel pillow to give her some added luxury during her flight like this plush grey one or this cute pink one.
Personalised Travel Jewellery Box
Cute little travel jewellery boxes like these ones on Etsy are great stocking fillers! They’re pretty, personalised and practical. What more could you want?! I especially like the ones that have pretty cursive writing on the top as they’re so chic and feminine! We won’t tell if you want to buy one for yourself either, they’re hard to resist!
Is she missing trips to Disney World or Disney Land? Sniff, we know the feeling! So why not transport her (virtually!) by buying her something Disney-inspired? You could buy her a fun Disney t-shirt or vest top, some Disney-inspired jewellery or even some Minnie Mouse ears, which she can wear now and on her next Disney trip! Sorted.
Chic Jetsetter Gift Guide: Affordable Travel Gifts For Women Under £50
And now for our Chic Jetsetter Gift Guide! Most of these travel gifts for women are on the cheaper end of the scale (most of them are around £30), so they still won’t break the bank! You’re welcome.
Personalised Travel Journal
If your favourite travel lover is also a travel blogger like us, then she’ll need somewhere to jot down blog ideas during her trips. And if she’s not a travel blogger, then a travel journal is still a great idea as she can use it like a scrapbook or diary when she’s away travelling! Why not make this gift even more special by getting her a personalised travel journal? We love these cute pastel-coloured ones and this faux leather journal that’s perfect for campers and glampers!
Airbnb Gift Card
If you know she uses Airbnb a lot during her trips, then why not buy her an Airbnb gift card, which she can use during her next overseas trip or weekend getaway. You can choose any value from $25 and up, so you don’t need to break the bank for this gift, either! And yet $25 could actually end up being an entire night somewhere – especially in cheaper places like Bali!
Get Your Guide Gift Card
We book all our day tours through Get Your Guide as it’s easy to do online and they have a super generous 24-hour cancellation policy! So why not buy your loved one a Get Your Guide gift card and let her pick from over 35,000 incredible experiences, day trips and tours from all over the world?!
Travel Hack Backpack
Help your favourite travel lover travel in style during their next trip with a fashionable travel backpack. We’ve scoured the interwebs and found a whole bunch of great ones, which you can see in this blog post. But if we had to choose just one for female travellers, it would be the Travel Hack Backpack, which is stylish in black and rose gold and practical with lots of pockets and compartments! Check prices on Amazon or via the Cabin Max website.
Travel-Inspired Throw Pillow
Who doesn’t love a bit of travel-inspired decor dotted around their home? Throw pillows are an affordable gift, but because there are so many different styles to choose from, it’s also a unique gift. We particularly like this chic Parisian pillow, this sweet “Follow Your Dreams” pillow and this cute “We Are Happy Campers” pillow.
Chic Weekender Bag
Get your favourite travel lover ready for their next weekend jaunt to the coast or epic road trip with a chic weekender bag or holdall. We think she’ll like this smart polka dot one, this nautical-inspired striped one and this pretty floral patterned one.
Insta-Famous Travel Books
We’re big fans of pretty coffee table travel books as they’re a great way to escape virtually from the comfort of your sofa and they make great decor items! Here are a few that I’ve personally loved reading and that are big hits with other female travellers too:
- World of Wanderlust
- Pretty City London: Discovering London’s Beautiful Places
- Pretty City New York: Discovering New York’s Beautiful Places
- How To Be Parisian: Wherever You Are
Not all hotels and Airbnbs offer hairdryers when you arrive. Hostels certainly don’t. And if they do, they’re usually cheap ones that take ages to dry long hair anyway. So, why not treat your favourite travel lover to her very own pint-sized hairdryer? This BaByliss one is pretty great – and especially for the price!
Barrel Makeup Bag
I’ve recently discovered barrel makeup bags and I think they’re awesome! If you know she travels with a fair bit of makeup and toiletries during her trips, then definitely check out barrel makeup bags like this one. They can fit a lot inside thanks to a drawstring opening rather than a standard zip.
I don’t know a single woman who doesn’t love receiving jewellery as gifts, and when they’re travel lovers, there are so many different designs to choose from! Here are a few of my favourites, which I’m sure she’ll like too:
- World Map Necklace
- World Map Birthstone Bracelet
- Compass Necklace
- Personalised St Christopher Pendant
- Cute Charm Bracelets
- The Jetsetter Bracelet Pack
RFID Travel Organiser
I could never be without my travel organiser as it makes finding my passport, boarding pass and other travel documents a breeze (even when I’m using a large handbag or cabin bag!) But, you can also go one step further and get an RFID travel organiser to help protect her documents. I adore this pretty-in-pink one from Amazon.
Tesalate Beach Towel
We were gifted a couple of Tesalate beach towels last year and we’ve used them on all of our trips since. Why? They’ve got fantastic vibrant patterns on them, they’re fast-drying, and are made of a different kind of material, which is designed to leave sand on the beach. And they really work! Considering we’ve carted them all over the world with us for over 18 months now, they still look like new, so we’re pretty confident that they’re long-lasting too! Take a look at Tesalate’s website – they have so many colours and patterns to choose from!
Frequent Traveller Gift Guide: Luxury Travel Gifts For Women Over £50
And finally, if you want to splurge a little on someone special then here are our picks of fabulous travel gifts for women over £50.
Travel Hack Pro Cabin Case
Scott recently bought me the Travel Hack Pro Cabin Case for my birthday and I am in love with it! You can read my full review here, but the gist of it is that this cabin-friendly suitcase is luxurious and stylish, packed full of lots of different pockets and compartments including a handbag compartment, and is much more affordable than you might think! Check the latest prices on Amazon here.
instax Polaroid Camera + instax Smartphone Printer
Instagram is having a bit of a moment these days where lots of travellers are starting to share real film photos or polaroids. Not to mention it’s always nice to be able to stick cute polaroids on your fridge or notice board or include them within scrapbooks and gifts. Take a look at the instax Polaroid Camera and matching smartphone printer so she can try it out herself!
Travel Subscription Box
If your favourite travel lover is missing travelling right now, then definitely consider a travel subscription box as a way of either helping them to travel virtually, or get them ready for an epic trip they plan to take as soon as it’s safe to do so. We’ve recently reviewed a whole bunch of travel subscription boxes here, but if you’re short on time, then here are the best ones for female travellers:
- Jetsetter Chic Travel Subscription Box (FYI: this one sells out fast!)
- The Happy Glamper Travel Subscription Box
- Wanderkarma Travel Box
- Life’s A Wave Beach Box
Luxury Travel Experience Gift
When you know she already has everything she could possibly need for travelling, help make her next trip an even more memorable one by giving her a unique travel experience. You could buy a specific experience from somewhere like Virgin Experience Days or BuyAGift. But we’ve also recently heard about Tinggly, which is another travel gift experience company – but with two major differences. First, there’s no expiration date on the experience! And second, each gift box allows your favourite traveller to choose their own experience in countries all over the world! Cool, huh?!
