It's almost December—where the hell did November go? I don't know about you, but year after year, I struggle to find the perfect gift for the people in my life. I'm always afraid that I'll buy something that the person doesn't like (or hates) or won't use at all. Although gift cards are a great alternative, I love thinking about what the person could do with their gift or how much they could love it.
Over the years, I've moved onto gifts or experiences that I hope the person will use all the time or bring them some sort of joy. So I've compiled this mini holiday gift guide for the female traveler in your life. It's filled with items that I personally use or have been lusting after for some time. I'm hoping it helps you find the perfect gift for your loved one, and makes the holidays slightly less stressful!
I can't tell you how much I love, love, love these sneakers. I have a painful foot problem that shows itself when I walk too much in super flat shoes like Converses, so these are a perfect alternative. When I slip these on, it feels like I'm walking on a cloud. I also love the look of the sneakers since they go with everything, and unlike other Adidas sneakers, they don't crease in the front. They're a great buy if you want to walk around and look stylish at the same time.

I've been lusting over this Gatta Bag for awhile now since it's an affordable and quality alternative to super expensive camera bags. I just love that it doesn't look like a camera bag, which is the whole point of the Gatta Bag line, and that there's room for lenses. The backpack version is also great if you want to keep your one shoulder from having too much weight on it. Sign up for their newsletter for $10 off your first order.

3 | Instax Mini 9
I love using the Instax Mini for instant travel or event keepsakes. Since the photos are on the smaller side, I like to stick them on my refrigerator rather than on a wall. I use these magnet squares. The camera is really simple to use, so even if you ask someone else to take your photo, they just need to view and press the button.

4 | Passport Holder
If you're a frequent traveler, having a passport holder will keep your passport in better condition than without. They're also just really cute! Some passport holders include slots for your boarding pass, cards, and any other papers you need.

I absolutely love my Away bag in the Bigger Carry-On size. Earlier this year, I was essentially traveling every week and my bag has held up amazingly. I've also traveled on a budget European airline and had zero problems with my bag exceeding the size limit. Using my Away bag has made me a much more efficient packer too. Great features include: 4 wheels, USB charger, laundry bag that can hold wet bathing suits, and compression pad. Use this link for a $20 credit.

I've been eyeing a >new mirrorless camera for awhiiiile now. There's a few reasons why: 1) It's a lot less bulky than a DSLR and lighter. 2) It still has interchangeable lenses and produces high quality photos. And 3) You can shoot in 4K video, which is perfect for travel videos.
