Travel gifts for her that are under $20
Finding inexpensive gifts for the woman traveler can be a challenge. Most items are so expensive. But I've scoured the Internet to find the cutest, most fashionable, and practical budget gifts for the boomer woman on your holiday gift list. Take a look!
If your woman traveler likes to write, she'll love this travel journal. BTSKY embossed journals come in four elegant designs that will inspire her to open the embossed cover and start writing. In fact, she might begin recording her travel thoughts before the plane leaves the gate.
When it comes to fashion, animal prints are all the rage this year. Your boomer woman will carry her makeup in style with this 3-piece Adrienne Vittadini Cosmetic Bag set. The kit includes three sizes.
Give a gift that refreshes with a shower bomb that turns her shower into a spa. Cleverfy's six aromatherapy shower melts are filled with natural organic oils. These packable shower tablets offer a luxurious spa experience no matter where she's staying.
Who likes to take medicine? Not us! But those pills will go down a lot easier when they're stored in this cute pill case from Vera Bradley. Created from her signature cotton designs, you're sure to find a style and color for your favorite boomer woman traveler.
She'll love slipping on a cute pair of Snoozies Skinnies at the end of a long travel day. Keep her feet warm and cozy, plus safe from hotel room germs, with a pair of slippers from Snoozies. Available in many cute prints with matching travel pouch. What a cute budget travel gift for her!
Toupons Fanny Pack is not only stylish, it's just the right size to compliment a nice dinner outfit when you don't want to lug around a large purse. Wear the fanny pack on a cruise excursion, then carry it to the ship's dining room that night. You know how we feel about doubling the use of travel items so that packing light becomes a reality.
This stylish Cashmere Scarf and Wrap is a great item to have on the road. It’ll keep you warm as you explore cold weather destinations or just snug as a bug on the flight over to Europe. And it comes in twenty colors! Maybe you should buy one for the woman traveler on your list plus another for yourself.
Cool gifts under $20
How do you find a unique travel gift for under $20? Start here. These travel products are perfect if you're playing Secret Santa or just want to impress a family member with your gift giving creativity.
What about a small backpack for day trips, carrying on the plane or shore excursions? Boomers will appreciate that this water resistant backpack is lightweight. An excellent choice for him or for her, with plenty of color choices.
Compression socks don’t have to be ugly. Keeping leg circulation in tiptop shape is always a good idea while traveling, especially for the boomer traveler. Check out the fashionable compression socks from SunFeeling
Travel-themed pillow covers to decorate the home of a boomer who lives, breathes and eats travel. This set of affordable four pillow covers will be a daily reminder of that next trip.
Nothing can ruin a great trip faster than realizing that your clothes are covered in shampoo slime. LiquiSnugs will protect you from that problem. Made of silicon, LiquiSnugs are virtually leakproof and are incredibly durable.
See-through and less than 3.5 ounces, LiquiSnugs qualify as TSA approved. You’ll sail through security as long as you include them in the bag of liquids that you send through the screening process.
Use this cool Electric Luggage Scale to help avoid those frustrating overweight luggage fees at the airport. Weigh bags before leaving home, when there’s still time to remove items.
The scale is especially useful for the cruisers on your gift list. Luggage seems to grow after a long cruise. It’s all that shopping!
Gifts for road trippers that are under $20
Road trips are more fun when your favorite roadtripper is organized and well-equipped. But that doesn't mean packing their entire home. These gifts for road trippers will add comfort and efficiency to a boomer travel adventure. And they're under $20!
The Tirrinia wine carrier tote carries two bottles of wine or champagne. The well-padded tote also includes a handle plus a corkscrew. This stylish gift is great for the roadtripper, wine lover or international traveler.
Who wants to drink wine out of a paper cup at the end of a long day on the road? With this elegant portable wine glass from Opux, your boomer travel friend will be sipping in style. Of course you'll want to purchase at least two of these gorgeous, collapsable wine glasses.
No need to pack the home medicine cabinet if you bring the DeftGet First Aid Kit on road trips. The 163-piece emergency medical kit includes everything you need. And it's packed in a waterproof carrying case.
Winter road trips are miserable if it's cold. Plug this blanket into a 12-volt vehicle outlet to stay cozy and comfortable. The low amp doesn't draw down car batteries. Great for emergencies.
More budget friendly gifts for travelers
If your boomer travel cruises to tropical destinations, a portable handheld fan is a lifesaver. While the rest of the shore excursion group is hot and sticky, your favorite traveler will be cool and comfortable using a battery operated fan by VersionTECH.
I believe that you can never have enough totes. Travel Smart All Purpose Microfiber Tote Bag is the perfect travel companion in so many ways. For most, this size makes for a perfect shopping tote as you wander European cities. Durable and comfortable, this tote bag folds into your purse until you need it.
