Travel gifts under $20

Travel Life Log |

Travel Life Log

For the organized traveler in your life (or the person who needs some help on that front), there’s the Travel Life Log to help plan the next trip. Complete with pages for list-making, observations and general notes, this journal will become part of the trip itself and be a cherished keepsake for years after the trip is over. (Amazon, $12)

Empty Travel bottles |

Empty travel bottles

Regular-sized shampoo and lotion bottles are just too big and bulky for travel. Empty travel bottles are a great gift for any traveler because they are small enough to fit in a carry-on and are even reusable! Fill up these bottles with your favorites shampoos and lotions to take on the go, wherever you go! (Amazon, $6)

Ponds moist towelettes |

Moist towelettes

We all want to look good after a long flight, but one thing is for sure — no one wants to lug around full-size products. Go the easy route with moist towelettes, perfect for when your suitcase real estate is at a premium. The towelette can help you cool off in warmer weather, clean your face and even take off your makeup. Easily slipped into your overnight bag, these versatile wipes will be all you need in your toiletry case. (Amazon, $5)

Mini styler |

A mini-styler

No girl on-the-go’s carry-on is complete without a product to liven jet-lagged hair. It’s a lot for your hair to go through, which is why a traveler should never be without a travel-size styler. It’s small enough to fit into a bag and take on the go, but effective in putting some flair back into your hair. If you’re in a rush and don’t have enough time to style your entire head, use this fabulous tool to make necessary touch ups. (Amazon, $17)

There is more to life than this book |

A good read

Every traveler needs a good book or two to take on the go. “There’s More to Life Than This” is a thought-provoking and insightful read that will keep you reading until the end. If you’ve ever seen the show “Long Island Medium” then you already know a book by Theresa Caputo will be sassy and fun! (Amazon, $15)

LUNA Protein Bars |

LUNA Protein Bars

A girl with places to be needs to keep her energy levels up, so stock your purse with some on-the-go nutrition from LUNA. Luna Protein Bars are under 200 calories each and are affordable, satisfying and get you from point A to point B without the possibility of caving in to candy bars and other unhealthy snacks along the way. Our favorite flavor is the Chocolate Peanut Butter. (Amazon, $14)

Traveler umbrella |

Travel-size umbrella
