The latest and greatest Kindle to come out on the market, this e-reader will allow the savvy girl traveller to pack smart and still swot up with her travel guides! The Kindle Paperwhite boasts an amazing screen resolution, a new innovative easy-to-read font, no glare in the sun, a seriously long battery life and it’s super lightweight.
I’ve been experimenting with different camera backpacks over the years. With a waxed canvas materials, plenty of room for my camera gear, laptop and personal items and adjustable/removable interior dividers, there’s some great companies out there for photographers and travellers who want a well-organised carry on or day pack.
I’ve tried out ONA, Gandys and PinqPonq in the past but I’m currently in love and sticking to Peak Design.
Never be out of touch with your girl warrior again. It’s easier than ever to get online around the world with Skyroam and their 24/7 WiFi hotspot. With global coverage and unlimited data, she’ll be able to surf the internet and stay in touch with you whilst she’s away making waves in the world (10% off code TEACAKETRAVELS at checkout).
The newest and most badass Go Pro camera is here! The GoPro Hero 8 Black has made me one happy adventurer. I can take the most amazing photos and selfies with it, capture the most riveting adventure moments and it’s also an excellent camera for vlogging!
There’s plenty of accessories to add on to it, and the video quality is consistently complimented upon by my viewers.
With a die-hard 22000mAh capacity, you can charge up to 3 devices at once and recharge them again and again and again until you have to boost this beauty up again. The RavPower Battery Pack got me and the whole of my my amazing all-girl team through the Mongol Rally and it’s still fresh as a daisy. Looking for something smaller? RavPower have plenty of charging levels and battery sizes.
The most powerful charger I’ve come across yet!
Luckies Of London has some pretty snazzy travel stationary going on and this Travel Journal is top notch.
Full of tips and advice, scratch maps, planning checklists and lots of space to write her experiences, she will love this sentimental travel gift hands down.
Don’t let her leave the house without travel insurance! Yes, nothing unfortunate may happen but if it does, she’ll be eternally grateful that you went ahead and bought it. I’ve been caught out a couple of times and trust World Nomads Travel Insurance everytime to make sure I’m covered.
Girls need tools too and this Leatherman Wave multi tool is one of the best gifts for world travelers for any adventure they undertake. It has 17 tools including pliers, cutters, knives, scissors, a can opener, a bottle opener (anyone for a bottle of wine?) and screwdrivers.
She’ll be prepared anytime, using it way more than she originally thought she would.
My word, travel is glorious but it sure can be stressful too. Don’t underestimate the power of essential oils for sorting your womanhood out. An essential oils kit has everything to keep an adventurer’s inner goddess in tip top shape.
My Mongol Rally teammate Tabitha got me on to this type of medicine, and I’m eternally grateful for discovering the healing properties of various essential oils. Lavender and Tea Tree are within my favourites, but there’s so much more.
Is she taking a travel break, documenting her adventures or wander-lusting about her travel bucket list? Help her feel inspired with this brilliant canvas world map. I have one hanging up in my bedroom and love waking up to it every morning. It reminds me what adventures I have achieved and all of the amazing ones that are coming up.
The biggest investment I have made throughout my travels is learning self defense. Friends and family are naturally concerned about safety whilst travelling. Give yourself peace of mind and empower the women in your life by inviting them to study self defense!
They will learn so many amazing techniques and become naturally more confident and empowered as a result.
If you want a Christmas travel gift that she will use again and again AND save money, then go for a Water To Go water filter bottle. Wherever she is, from mountain rivers to city public bathrooms, she’ll be able to get clean, fresh drinking water every time with this filtered water bottle.
The feeling of being organised is such a freeing and calming one. The Cocoon Grid It Organizer is the answer to your luggage prayers. It can be arranged any way she wishes to fit her personal items. It comes in a variety of sizes and slides perfectly into her luggage. Sorted!
For those ladies out there who like to keep it clean, the Scrubba Wash Bag is one of the practical best travel gifts women want.
It allows you to wash your clothes anywhere, anytime for free. Ideal for when she’s really in the outdoors, this bag is a top notch portable washing machine.
Do not underestimate the power of this travel gift for her! If she’s a little bit of a shy traveller, taking someone’s photo and physically being able to give them the result will break any ice – and locals will love her forever for it!
Out of all the best travel gifts women need, the Instax Mini 8 Camera is my secret weapon in my backpack and it should be hers too.
I’m usually hiking mountains and rolling in mud on a bike but for those times where I really want some luxury, it’s wonderful to treat myself to a splash of perfume. Michael Kors Wonderlust Perfume is a lovely choice for it’s on-point branding.
On the beach, in the mountains, in the wettest parts of the world (and yes, in your hotel shower), having a JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker, which is hard as nails, is a wonderful gift for a female traveller. It’s loud, waterproof and compatible with all devices. Rock on ladies!
If you’re not embarrassed to give it as a gift (and you really shouldn’t be) go ahead and give a girl a mighty eco-friendly, economical way to manage her moon days.
She’ll never have to spend money on those
evil sanitary product companies ever again. There are different brands out there but my favourite by far is the Lily Cup which comes in two different shapes and sizes to fit your inner power.
