I have one in my office where I keep paper clips and one at home by my bed side to store rings and earrings when I go to bed.
They make for thoughtful travel inspired gifts for her. And they are not going to break the bank either.
Wall Travel map – Scratch Map
Although quite popular in the travel world, but you may or may not know about this. So here it is – a wall travel map. These maps comes with re-useable glue at the back, so you can stick it wherever you like and take it out, without leaving any residue on the wall.
They can be used to plan upcoming travels, like a vision board, as an interior décor piece or as a show-off about your past travels (bragging rights right? I think they are the best trophies ever). You can even mail them quite easily as it comes in a tube, without damaging the map inside.
This MyMap is made from heavyweight lacquer paper which is durable and will last for years. The paper has a beautiful glossy finish covering the vivid colors. When revealed, each country has a bright color that pops in contrast with the background. Just use a coin or a Scratch Tool included in the kit, to remove the gold scratch coating and reveal the countries.
Inside you will find a greeting card, felt, pins, buttons, stickers, a small cartoon cutout, and a guitar pick.

Valentino Scarf – luxurious and functional
I LOVE scarves. I own probably TOO many of them (which is not a good thing, but oh well). A scarf can save the day when it is chilly, cruising on the Danube in Budapest or taking a night lights tour in Las Vegas or cold in-flight. They are super handy and can also uplift an outfit when traveling with a capsule wardrobe or just with a backpack.
Here is a stunning scarf from Valentino. This beautiful scarf is soft on the skin and makes for a great style statement. It can be worn as an infinity scarf as well. This is another luxury item to keep her feel special and it is under $1000.

Want the luxury of carrying over 10,000 books and travel guides and PDFs on a handy little device that has a monster battery life? Try the Kindle Paper white. We have been using Kindle since the first one ever came out, with a bulky keyboard. The newer ones are much better and lighter and beautiful. We own the Kindle Paperwhite and have used them on transit rides or travels to read books for entertainment as well as prepare for course work (yea we love to travel, but we also got to keep updating our skills at the workplace).
Kindle boasts of a high quality reading experience with back light which is easy on the eyes. It can be used them to read on overnight flights, without disturbing the passenger sitting next to you/her.
Kindle is a delight to a traveler who is also a voracious reader or a tidy planner like me. This light weight device can also slip into a purse or a daypack. The battery lasts for a month at least if not longer. We have also used the Kindle to look up information using the browser, it is NOT the greatest as it is a reading device, but it comes in handy in case of emergency browsing.

Arc’teryx Andra Coat – Travel Jacket
One of my favorite travel items is a jacket. An all weather (light weight) jacket is a MUST whether you are a city girl or a hiker. This is ONE of the functional luxurious items to gift her.
I am in love with this versatile jacket/coat which is waterproof, lightweight and warm.
It is called Arc’teryx Andra Coat. The coat-jacket is of a nice length – it’s long enough to cover the bum and provide warmth. Sleeves are nice and long too. It comes with an attached hood, with deep pockets.
The coat silhouette and the color wins the competition as it is PERFECT for any type of travel girl. An awesome travel gift and any girl can rock this in New York City or while hiking in Banff National Park.
High Capacity Power bank
Power Banks are an essential these days. We carry our electronic items on the go and are capturing memories or sharing life moments so you don’t want to be out of juice. Power banks will fill up the battery on electronic devices when plug-in outlets/ports are out of reach. Think of airport lobby, restaurants, inside a bus (with no USB port) or long commute rides.
This power bank of 24800 mah is of powerful calibre to charge a smartphone fully. This recommended power bank travel gift for her is functionally powerful, lightweight and trendy.
Pandora Eiffel Tower Charm and Bracelets
Pandora bracelets are a big deal, trust me. You can personalize a Pandora bracelet with a travel charm. You can use a generic travel symbol like suitcase or globe or be specific like Paris, Rome or Las Vegas.
For starters, get a beautiful travel charm (like the Eiffel Tower charm) to start the bracelet. Definitely a treasured and a unique gift for her that she will LOVE!
Lonely Planet Books
If your girl loves the smell and feel of paperback books – get her Lonely Planet travel guide books. For every traveler, they are like GOLD medals and it speaks volume of traveling and more travels to come.
You can purchase them easily from the Amazon store and can choose from a variety of destinations.
A unique way to gift this is to buy a travel guide from a destination where SHE has the fondest memories from, or from your honeymoon/babymoon or where you proposed. So that each time she looks at it, it reminds her of wonderful times in that destination!
I got them as gifts when I was in school like a decade ago, and I still have them as a travel souvenir at home. That Lonely Planet guide was about India (I received it as a gift in 2007 I think). It still brings back great memories when I flip through the pages and it has sticky notes with my wish lists on it too!
A water bottle is an essential travel item. Make it a real investment (and a item that she doesn’t wanna leave behind) with this in-built filter. So whether she is backpacking in Chile or wandering through the Yucatan ruins, she can have the luxury on filtered and safe drinking water on the go.
This water bottle with an in-built filter improves health, flavor, odor and clarity. Clean drinking water is ready in only 15 seconds ( it makes 2 liters/minute).

Walking shoes are SO SO important when your lady friend is traveling and constantly on the go. These all terrain travel shoes are lightweight, trendy and goes with pants and dresses.
Perfect for Europe travels, in rainy weather or on cobblestone lanes. Your travel girl can walk miles in them, without a worry.
Digital Photo Frames
Gone are the days of holding and framing a 6×4 photo. Digital photos frames are an excellent way to showcase travel memories. Most of us use our cellphones or digital cameras to capture memories, and we get it – there are hundreds probably thousands of those. Why keep them stored on phone or laptop only? Sync any wireless device (phone or tablet) loaded with travel memories to this digital photo frame and let the show begin.
With this digital photo frame, one can access all the photos on Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, and Picasa and upload them safe and securely to Nixplay online cloud storage with 10 GB photo storage. Set up a timer to flip through many captures throughout the day or keep one favorite picture memory (like a traditional photo frame) – your choice!
I received this as a birthday gift from Salil (like 10 years ago) and it works pretty well, even today! All I do is add more photos and change up the frame once we return from trip.
Great choice for a travel gift for women (a friend, co-worker/business gift idea too).
Packing Cubes – Sheen Pink
Packing cubes are a necessity for the girl traveler. Whether she carries a suitcase or a backpack, these packing cubes will keep clothes and essentials organized.
When I use my 40 litre backpack as a carry-on, I use the large size packing cube to store all of my clothes and it compresses the clothes and makes it manageable and tidy.
When you purchase a packing cube for a gift, choose a pretty color and in a bundled pack like this one. These packing cubes are bundled in 3-5 sizes from small laundry bag to a large size clothing organizer bag. The soft pink color with a shiny surface makes these packing cubes super unique.
