33 Gift Ideas Stylish Female Travelers Will Love

When it comes to finding gifts for your stylish traveler friends and relatives, sometimes it can be a real struggle. Often I find with travel-related products that functionality, awesomeness, AND aesthetics do not go hand in hand. As a former fashion industry girl, I feel your pain. So for all of you who are still in search of that perfect something to gift or receive, I’ve scoured all of my favorite shopping sites for the most awesome items (ones I have myself or would want to be gifted!) and am sharing them with you. Here’s to finally finishing your holiday shopping this season once and for all.

1. Monocle City Guides

While guides like Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor can help travelers suss out the most popular and traveler-tested sites in a city, I like Monocle guides for their keen sense of taste and design.
