The holiday season is just upon us! It’s one of my favorite times of the year if not my absolute favorite. Of course it’s not just about the presents, but if you know a special female in your life that loves to travel, these travel products and accessories will make great gifts for all the wanderlustin’ babes of the world. These are my top picks of favorite travel products and accessories from 2015. Happy holidays and go out and buy some epic travel gifts for that fabulous female in your life.
1. Burton Luggage
I’ve been using Burton products for my travel needs since before I can remember. The skateboard wheels on all the bags make traveling and moving around much easier. Truth be told, I never use a backpacking bag. I feel a roller bag is just the way to go, it’s more convenient and easier on everyone involved. Burton’s luggage bags are trendy and the coolest looking bags in the travel game.
2. Burton Toiletry Kit
My Burton toiletry kit has been all around the world with me. My boyfriend complains I bring too many toiletries with me. However, the way I feel about it is, if I’m going to be living out of my suitcase I’m going to bring everything I can to make myself feel at home. Hell, a girl needs her makeup.
3. New Balance Shoes
Hands down the most comfortable shoes to travel in. Most people don’t even think about this, but it’s very necessary to wear close-toed shoes while traveling. If you don’t, you’re putting yourself in danger of catching diseases by exposing your bare feet. With New Balance shoes your feet will always be in good hands and you’ll never end a day exploring early because of aching feet.
4. Stance Socks
Along with comfortable shoes, you need comfortable socks. It doesn’t hurt that Stance socks are pretty easy to look at as well.
Price: Average $12-24
5. A Travel Scarf
I swear I use my scarves for everything when I travel. My favorite scarves have kept me warm on cold flights, they’ve made makeshift pillows on uncomfortable bus rides, and have even acted as a picnic blanket when need-be. A travel scarf is one of the ultimate travel gifts to any female. Urban Outfitters has some great scarves that are priced reasonably.
Price: Around $30
6. Lulu Lemon Leggings
I don’t think any girl on this world should be without a pair of LuLus. Yes, they’re pricey but they last forever! I’ve had the same pair of leggings for six years! They are the ultimate travel pants.
Price: Average $90
7. Patagonia Jackets
I have a love affair with Patagonia products. Their high quality products do all the talking for themselves. I bring my fleece and my windbreaker everywhere I go. Even if it’s a warmer destination, they roll up so easily you barely even notice when it’s in your bag. Here’s me wearing my Patagonia jacket on top of Machu Picchu in 2013.
8. Made by Dawn Swimsuits
If you’re going to travel in style this year, Made by Dawn suits are my favorite! They’re comfy, cute, and great for instagram pictures 😉
Price: Average $120
9. Neff Watches
Travel in style and never miss a flight again! Check out my favorite watch company, Neff.
10. Free People passport wallet
We all need a wallet big enough to fit our obnoxiously over-sized passports in. Free people has a wallet I love.
11. Lush travel-friendly products
Lush isn’t only amazing because their products are all handmade and smell delectable, but they also have a “travel-friendly” line of products. With dry shampoo bars, solid toothpaste and products that can last months, it doesn’t get much better than that. Lush products make for the perfect stocking stuffer.
12. Panasonic LUMIX GH4
I put this on the list because in all honesty, this is the best camera I’ve ever used.
I can’t see how people can travel and not get entirely obsessed with photography. Photography has taken over my life as a travel blogger and I love it!
If you know someone who wants to get into film and/or photography I highly recommend the Panasonic Lumix GH4, the best on the market and the only camera that films in 4K! That’s better than HD if you didn’t know…
Price: Average $1500
13. GoPro Hero 4
Every traveler needs a GoPro, no ifs, ands, or buts.
14. Polaroid Camera
Although this may not be the best in terms of practicality and having to bring it everywhere, I enjoy having a Polaroid camera at my house. Even when I’m not traveling it helps with creativity and taking fun photos of places close to home. However, like I said, I rarely bring it on the road.
15. Noise Cancelling Headphones
Not only do these headphones help with the inevitable crying baby on your flight, but also they’re good for your health and wellness. It’s not great to fly all the time and be exposed to all of that noise; it’s bad for your ears. During takeoff it’s imperative you wear noise-cancelling headphones; Bose are the best.
Here are my favorite travel products and travel gifts of 2015. Let me know if you think there’s anything missing on this list. Happy Holidays!
