Finding the ideal gift for a travel fanatic can be tricky. When a plane ticket is too costly, you need to find a thoughtful and practical gift idea that they will love. With Black Friday coming up, here are some inspirations to help you find your mum or friend the perfect gift for the holiday season!


A Stunning Travel Bag

A versatile travel bag can make the perfect gift for someone who loves globetrotting. Carry-on sized travel bags are a stylish and durable gift, that will fit a few travel essentials and hopefully express the traveller’s personality too. You can browse a lovely selection of beautiful handmade travel bags from sites like Mirta, an Italian online marketplace that sources products from artisans from all across Italy, who are using only the best leathers. What’s more desirable and gorgeous than Italian bags?  Not a lot, that is for sure. They are made of water-resistant materials, have quality zippers to withstand harsh outdoor conditions and the luxurious leather sets them apart. You can choose from duffle bags or backpacks.


In-Flight Skincare Kits

When travelling, you need to take particular care of your skin by keeping it well hydrated and moisturised. An in-flight skincare kit can come in handy for someone who regularly takes long flights and would make a wonderful gift. The kit may not have all the skincare essentials you need, but a hydrating mist spray, facemask, cleanser and moisturiser will make travelling easier and far more pleasant. You can buy your fellow mum friends a skincare package to keep their complexion from looking parched and dull.  A sunscreen cream will also be an excellent choice to help combat the sun's effects when they are tracking or doing outdoor activities.

Silk Pillowcases

Most hotels usually have cotton pillowcases that may leave wrinkles and ruin one’s hairstyle by making it dry…no thanks! Silk pillowcases have a soft and luxurious feel on the skin, making them the perfect gift for anyone travelling. Gifting the pillowcases will give any woman something to make her nights relaxing when she is on holiday. The silk pillowcase will protect her hair from frizz, breakage and bed head, which means she will not have to redo her hair in the morning most likely.


Comfy Traveling Tracksuit

Exploring the world is fun, but the long flight hours can take away some of the joys of travelling. A little comfort during the flight will help to make the trip more enjoyable. You can get your friend a super comfy velour or terry cloth tracksuit that is warm and comfortable for travelling. Make sure it is practical with pockets and maybe a hood to help her enjoy a good sleep during the flight. 


Convertible Neck Cushion and Foot Rest Pillow

Sleeping on a plane can be uncomfortable and often causes neck and back pains. Luckily, a convertible neck cushion can make sleeping on the flight a lot easier and more relaxing. The cushion keeps your neck in place so that your head does not lurch as the plane moves. You can find an inflatable neck pillow that can easily be deflated and carried in your backpack or attached on the strap.

The above gift ideas are thoughtful for any traveller. Apart from being the perfect gifts for your mum, mum friends, or even for yourself, they can also come in handy during your adventures when you're globetrotting. Happy travels!
