The final countdown for Christmas is on, and like many, I am still scrambling to find gifts for some of my travel-loving girlfriends. I figured I’d share some “gift-spiration” to those who also might still be looking for a gift for girls who love travel!
My friend recently surprised me with a travel-themed adult coloring book, and I thought it was a super neat idea! I often am buried in my phone and computer when flying, and it’s easy to forget that flying can still be a relaxing way to disconnect. The Lonely Planet Ultimate Travel Coloring Book is just one of many travel-themed adult coloring books on Amazon.
The same friend that I mentioned above also gave me theBalm Balm Voyage 2 Palette, and it’s so darn cute. This travel-themed face palette from theBalm Cosmetics contains 9 exclusive eyeshadows which can be used wet or dry; 2 blushes; 1 bronzer; 1 highlighter; 2 versatile lip-and-cheek creams, all cleverly named with “Welcome” in different languages.
I always like to travel on long flights comfortably without sacrificing fashion. Betabrand has a curated travel collection ranging from red-eye wraps to travel yoga pants. These innovative designs blend style, comfort, and everyday convenience for the chic traveler.
Speaking of comfy travel pants, I figured I’d share the most comfortable lounge pants I own that come on every trip I take- Tommy Hilfiger Modal Lounge Pants. Sometimes airline PJs don’t cut it (I wear an XS, and I’m often stuck with medium pajamas that are just too long and big on me), so I always like to have something of my own to rely on. What’s even better is they’re even on sale for $29.99 on Amazon!
I’m terrible when it comes to remembering to apply sunscreen on my face because I often find it to clog my pores and feel greasy under my makeup. Plus, I’m picky about ingredients. I discovered Belize in You Soleil Sage Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30, which is made with natural ingredients and gives enough coverage at the beach or pool so I don’t even have to wear make-up on top of it. Plus it is 1 oz and TSA carry-on approved.
I’ve been a BirchBox subscriber for 3 years, I’m a huge fan of subscription boxes, and I love travel-sized beauty samples. A BirchBox subscription is simply an awesome gift for a travel-loving lady because she can look forward to a “supply” of beauty samples each month to take on her next trip. Right now, Birchbox is offering 20% off yearly gift subscriptions with promo code MERRY12 (the cost will be $88 instead of $110), bringing the price down to under $7.50 per box. I can assure you that the value of each box is worth far more than the price, and it’s always nice to get a curated-box each month in the mail.
I’m a huge fan of the DryBar & there are locations in almost all major US cities (aka hub cities). It’s always a great feeling knowing that you can get your hair blown out and styled professionally (while sipping bubbly) at moment’s notice for a night out. Or in my case, I like to get my hair done before a first class flight, no joke. If you’re still looking for a last-minute gift for a female traveler, you can buy instant e-giftcards for the DryBar here (and there’s even a $20 off $100 AmEx offer available too!).
