Surprise any stylish traveler in your life with one of our gift picks that are useful, as well as having some fashionable flair.
Lip balm on planes is an essential carry-on item due to the dry, recirculated air. But for a stylish pal, not just any lip balm will do. We love the Fig and Yarrow lip balm in fragrant basil and cardamom. The lip balm is made from all-natural ingredients and comes in a gorgeous tin. (Fig and Yarrow, $10)
If your stylish jet-setting pal likes to jot down memories the old-fashioned way (via pen and paper), get her a luxe leather journal to record observations from her travels. The slim, leather notebook can easily be tossed into a purse or carry-on bag. (Spartan, $21)
pillow and eye mask
No stylish traveler is ever going to settle for any old airline pillow. Instead, give her the option of cashmere. This travel kit, consisting of a pillow and an eye mask, was handmade by artisans living in the Himalayas using fair-trade Nepalese yarn and vegetable dyes. (Anthropologie, $198)
Whether it’s for a short jaunt or used as a carry-on bag, this stylish floral weekender bag would be appreciated by any jet setter in your life. Multiple pockets and a detachable cross-body strap make it practical as well as fashionable. (Anthropologie, $110)
Luggage tags shouldn’t be boring, especially when it comes to traveling in style. We were instantly smitten with this emerald-green tag with eye-catching metallic details. Though we’re partial to the green, the tags come in several beach-inspired hues. (Flight 001, $25)
Skip the generic makeup case in favor of something with a little flair. Any stylish traveler on your list will love this sleek snake-themed leather case, which is just the right size for toting makeup essentials. (Meg Biram Shop, $70)
Frequent travelers sometimes crave familiarity after being away so often. Give the jet setter in your life a chic travel candle that can instantly make her feel more at home. This one is scented with notes of mineral salt, watercress and crushed citrus. We especially love the pretty tin. (Tokyo Milk, $12)
One of the best accessories you can have as a traveler is an oversized shawl. It can work as a blanket, cover-up and accessory to your outfits. We suggest gifting your favorite stylish traveler with this unique shawl made from vintage pieces of indigo, sewn together in Mali (Spartan, $120).
Luxe City Guides
Ensure your jet-setting friend is in the know wherever she goes with a compact city guide filled with the best spots to shop, eat, drink and stay. From Bangkok to Barcelona, get her a few as inspiration for her next journey. (Flight 001, $10)
Sure, there’s Instagram, but what’s better than being able to hold your photos in your hand right after snapping them? Any photo-loving traveler will get a kick out of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera. We love the pink, but you can choose from green, black, white, blue and yellow. (Urban Outfitters, $100)
