Perfect Travel Gifts for Women - for under $30

Each time Christmas or a birthday rolls around, the question of travel gifts for women raises its head. It's not easy finding something original, small and light (it has to be carried) and super useful.

So I've made the decisions for you by listing things I've tried and loved, or haven't tried but would love to! It's a mix of fun and practical and inspiration - and each gift costs less than $30 (or pounds or euros, wherever you live).


Pantone Notebooks

It's no secret I'm a stationery nerd and I have dozens of new notebooks waiting to be written in - but these, oh, aren't they gorgeous?

Packing Cubes
If you don't have a set of these - why not?? Whether I'm traveling with a suitcase or a backpack, they make my life so much more organized (and the small one is perfect for bulky computer plugs and cables).

FashionBoutique Waterproof Nylon Shoe Bags
One of my pet peeves is having the filthy soles of my shoes touch my clothes, which is why I use packing cubes, compression bags - and shoe bags.

BUBM Cord Organizer
Don't you get frustrated when all your cords get jumbled up in your suitcase? I've tried everything to organize them until... this.

Fenix Flashlight Headband
Indispensable for my travels: I put it in my shoe at night in case of fire and in the countryside, I use it for evening hikes or to get myself to the outhouse (yes, they do exist).
