Is your girl one of us chic fashionistas who are always on our way to somewhere special? Or she just decided to finally overcome her fear of flying, get the courage to let everything behind and travel in 2022? If this is the case, the best way for you to show her you support her 2022 goals is to get her something she will need on her way and wish her a bon voyage.
Well, you can also sneak in her new suitcase you will give it to her this Christmas and join her on her journey.
Anyway, here are the 16, well actually a few more than just 16 the best Travel Christmas gifts for fashionistas who love to travel.
THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR TRAVELERS
I made sure there is nothing else in my travel gift guide but the things a fashion girl really needs when travelling. You know what I mean. After seeing so many gift guides for girls who like to travel that made no sense to me or any other fashion girl, I decided to add only the things I always use when I travel – especially around Europe. You know what I mean – those 2 hours long flights and short travels.
Surely, a fashionista needs headphones too, but hey, let’s face it, your girl already has them. And new headphones are not the first thing she needs. Especially not if becoming a frequent flyer is her 2022 goal.
But what does she need? What is the best Christmas gift for travellers? Well, let’s find out!
USEFUL CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR A FIRST TIME TRAVELER
First, some chic and useful Christmas gifts for a first time traveller.
1 TRAVEL GUIDE
First things come first – The Travel Guide. Even if your girl is a legit traveller who has seen most of the world, I bet there is at least one place from the 2022 Lonely Planet’s Best Travel 2022 list she hasn’t checked yet. I hope my Secret Santa brings this guide for me too.
2 DESIGNER LUGGAGE SET
Before you let your girl spread her wings and fly away, make sure she has a proper suitcase. There is nothing worse than seeing your suitcase fall apart once you land. I have seen girls crying over their luggage at the airport many times.
3 VANITY CASE
A pretty vanity case is a great Christmas gift for a traveller, too. Any first-time traveller will love this sublime Diortravel vanity case – especially if she runs out of money and needs to cash in quickly to get back home.
4 CARRY-ON LUGGAGE
If she is taking shorter trips for the beginning, give her a carry-on or a duffle bag.

5 PASSPORT COVER
A passport cover might not be essential, but she will be grateful for it in case a land flight attendant wants to stick the baggage tag on her passport. I wish I had my passport covered with this cover when that happened to me.
6 NAIL FILE
Don’t let her start to hate travelling after her first travel just because she broke her nail at the airport.
You wouldn’t believe how many times I broke my nail (actually, I should write this in the plural as I broke almost all of my nails before I even got to the hotel) and bought a new set of Dior’s nail polishes with a file before the flight.
I only learned my lesson to put the nail file in every travel bag after buying the seventh Dior travel nail set.
Anyway, you can spare your girl money, and the last-minute beauty counter stops by giving her a set of nail files this Christmas.
7 LEATHER GLOVES
Even better, get her a pair of precious leather gloves to keep her hands without a scratch.
THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR GIRLS WHO LIKE TO TRAVEL
While every girl who likes to travel eventually buys herself a great luggage set, not everyone has that much luck with her travel clothes.
Make sure your girl has proper travel clothes before you send her out to the world.
Travel clothes and travel shoes are the best Christmas gifts for girls who like to travel but not all the time.
8 TRENCH COAT
A trench coat is an essential piece of the best airport outfit. It is exceptionally chic and makes any traveler look like she is travelling in first class.
Ps. Give her this Burberry trench coat with a hood. This way, she won’t have to worry about her hair as she touches the ground.
Another thing every trendy traveler needs is chic headwear. A designer baseball cap is the best Christmas gift for every girl who wants to travel in style.
Browse through the widget to shop for some of the most popular baseball caps for women.
Baseball caps and sunglasses are the signature airport essentials of all celebrities. Make your girl feel like a movie star every time she touches down.
Give her a pair of statement sunglasses. Here are some she will love, for sure.
THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR FREQUENT TRAVELERS
Every fashion girl knows a face mask, leather gloves, hat, and sunglasses are a must when travelling. And no, not only because every celebrity wears them, especially the large dark sunglasses, when trying to get through the customs, posing for the paparazzi and getting into the uber as soon as possible.
Undoubtedly, the leather gloves and sunglasses are one of the best 2021 Travel Christmas gifts for frequent travelers this Christmas. Yet, not the only gifts.
Here are a few more little luxury gifts for girls who travel a lot.
She travels all the time, yet you never get to see the photos? Buy her a polaroid camera. This way, she will have no excuses anymore.
13 TRAVEL SIZE MAKEUP
Do you know what women fear the most when travelling by plane? No, not what if the plane crashes. But what if the mascara smudges or some spots on the face show up the minute the plane lands. And yes, this struggle is legit.
I’m not sure if it’s because of the dry air, the sun rays, the lousy plane food or the lack of water, but people look different when the plane touches the ground. And no, they don’t look better – apart from the fashion people, of course. And smart people who wear a face mask all the time.
Why? Because we keep travel makeup in our hand luggage and fix our makeup before we land, of course.
Browse through the widget below to shop for the best travel size makeup and mini fragrance.
There is a good reason why Touche Éclat has been every fashionista’s favourite travel makeup product for years. And I’m pretty sure your fashionista will be happy to get Le Stylo Monogram Edition. Click here to get Touche Éclat.
14 TRAVEL BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Small but powerful. Plus it smells divine. A good hand cream is a must-have for a fashion girl who likes to travel. For one, she can’t eat with her gloves on. And her hands will get dry if she doesn’t put cream on. Click here to get this excellent hand cream from Chanel.
If you can only afford one gift for your fashionista who likes to travel, and this gift has to be under $8. Then give her this sheet mask. She will love it – especially if she sleeps in before her morning flight and has no time to put on makeup early in the morning while catching the plane. Ps. Be sure to get another mask for you too. You will be amazed by its photoshop effect. Click here to go straight to the store where you can buy it.
Here is something I wish to get for Christmas this year. You know, I always keep a mini travel hairspray in my purse. And this one is one of my favourites. Ps. By giving your fashionista who loves to travel a hairspray, you are not taking care of her hair solely. She can use hairspray if someone tries to attack her as well. Get this beautiful beauty gift set here.
Ps. That hair travel gift set includes some luxury travel essentials that will make your girl feel luxurious even on the dirty streets of Bangladesh, too. Yes, it’s a travel size shampoo – the best shampoo – and moisturiser.
If you are looking for something even more luxurious and exceptional, give your girl Balmain Paris Hair Couture Golden Spa Brush Mini Hair Care Set. It’s the best little luxury gift for any fashion girl who likes to travel. I want it too! Secret Santa, click here.
15 MINI BEAUTY GADGETS
Mentioning hair travel sets, a cordless straightener is an exceptional Christmas gift for a frequent traveler, too.
While a hairdryer is not something many women put in their suitcases, I believe a folding featherweight dryer is an excellent Christmas gift for a frequent traveler with great hair.
If you only know how many times I ended up with no hairdryer on my journey. And not only at Airbnb but also at 5* hotels. True, I always get a new hairdryer at the hotel – even at 2 am. But I feel so bad whenever I need to call the concierge in the middle of the night to ask for a new hairdryer because the old one was simply not strong enough to dry my hair and broke down.
Anyway, after many unfortunate events with a hairdryer, I hot myself a small yet powerful featherweight compact folding dryer from T3micro with the ion generator. Yes, this hair dryer even reduces static and frizz. Plus it boosts shine. Europe buy it here. USA you can get it here together with the mini flat iron. Oh, she will just love it if you get her both. Ps. USA click here to get a pink T3Micro folding dryer.
A busy fashionista on the go needs the best cleaning device, too. I use Luna go. This ultra-hygienic travel face device doesn’t require much charging, plus it’s super small. It’s no larger than a cotton pad and so light. It was made to help us prevent breakouts when we travel. I simply love it. Here is where to get Luna Go.

16 PILLOW SET
Finally, a pillow set. If your girl is anything like me and likes to sleep while flying, she will love this beautiful silk pillow and eye mask travel set. I got Slip silk pillow and eye mask from my friend a few Christmases ago. And I have been taking it with me wherever I went since then.
