As I type, snowflakes are falling. A little bit of anxiety rises to the surface because I have not purchased a single Christmas gift for anyone yet!

I have a feeling I will be bringing home a 50lb bag of Christmas presents with me from my upcoming trip to Europe. Whoopsie!


The Female Traveler Christmas Gift Guide

Raise your hand if you are in the same boat as me!

Don’t worry though, I’ve put together a little shopping guide for all of you who have a traveler in your life! While most everything in this guide will be intended for the ladies out there, if you see an item you like, just locate the male version!


Stocking Stuffers, $30 and Under

Cell Phone Lenses

If you remember from this post, I talked about why my cell phone may be the best camera I have. Cell phones are very lightweight and can take amazing photos! Sometimes, though, changing up the view can make all the difference, which is why I think these little lenses for your cell phone are a must!

Scratch Off Maps

A traveler will always want to see where they’ve been and make plans for their next trip! This gorgeous scratch-off map is fun and inspiring!
