What do you gift a female traveller?
We all know a girl who travels. A girl who’s never there, or if she is – she’s dreaming she was far, far away. It might be your girlfriend, your sister, your mate or a female colleague you’ve got for secret santa. What do you buy for a woman who knows the greatest gift is a one-way ticket, but who also likes to surround herself with stylish things? Choosing presents for women who travel can be tough, so I’ve got 51 gift ideas for you that will delight any female adventurer.
There’s something in this gift guide for every budget and I can guarantee that your WWW (Woman With Wanderlust) will thank you if she unwraps any of these travel themed presents. Here’s my gift guide for fierce female travellers.
And girls – feel free to send this someone’s way who *might* need a few hints this year….
