The Best Women’s Travel Gifts Under $50
As voracious travelers, we all dream of opening up a gift box to find a lone plane ticket (or an airline gift card, to be more literal) to somewhere we've never been before.
But what to do when you're shopping for a globetrotter with a budget that's a little less around-the-world flight and a little more one-way Greyhound bus to a neighboring city? We've rounded up some of the best travel-inspired gifts for women, each of which comes in at less than $50.

You can go the practical route, with a sturdy backpack or a mini travel emergency kit that includes everything from earplugs to stain remover wipes. Or perhaps you'd like to stir the spirit of travel even at home with a stunning photo book or a foil-pressed map print of a favorite destination. And of course, you certainly can't go wrong with small leather goods — from a chic passport cover to a colorful travel wallet to Instagram-ready luggage tags.
This year, Travel + Leisure is offering its most comprehensive gift guide ever. The goal? To make sure you can find the perfect present for everyone on your list — style obsessives, coffee connoisseurs, and more. Here, our top picks for jet-setting women.
Pinch Provisions Travel Kit
Huzi Infinity Pillow
Votivo Aromatic Travel Tin Candle
Gloss Moderne Clean Luxury Travel Collection
We'd recommend this kit for the hydrating masque alone. It smells amazing, takes just five minutes, and a T+L editor who tested it was thoroughly impressed with the body it gave her hair. Paired with the brand's shampoo and conditioner, it's a surefire way to have locks looking healthy and full for days to come.
