I’ve been doing A LOT of local travel lately and have really enjoyed rediscovering my area. When I’m not exploring, I’ve been home. And like most, being home means more time online. Aka more online shopping. I’ve purchased quite a few goodies in the past few months that have been perfect for travel. I’m already excited for the new year so I can rock my new things this winter and hopefully take them somewhere new! So, without further ado, here’s my list of 10 travel essentials for women!

10 Travel Essentials For Women
Ok these boots are it. I’ve been on the hunt for a cute, but practical brown boot for the fall/winter and LOVE these! They are super warm and compact. Not chunky like my L.L. Bean boots, although I do love those too.
If you have a camera, you need this. For years, I’ve gone through the hassle of uploading my photos to my laptop and then sending them to my iPhone. This SD Card Reader, allows you to plug in your SD card and connect it right to your phone! When you plug it in and open your camera roll, a little “import” button will appear and you can instantly download your photos. I bring this thing with me everywhere now. It’s perfect for on the go uploading and editing!
If you own AirPods, get a case! My silicon case came with a hook so I can easily clip them to my keys or purse. Also, the case makes them easier to hold, slip-proof, and findable in all my bags. Plus, these cases come in a variety of colors, making this one of the travel essentials for women.
Another one of my favorite travel essentials for women. Whether you’re an advanced photographer or just beginning, I highly recommend buying a tripod. This recommendation is more for the beginners because it’s for an iPhone! The tripod comes with a small remote that hooks up to Bluetooth, allowing you to snap your own photos no matter where you are. This is such a great thing to have for stable video recording too.
PS. If you’re looking for a compact, light-weight camera tripod I HIGHLY recommend this one. This tripod comes with me everywhere and fits right in my backpack! It adjusts to various heights too.
I can’t NOT put this on here. And I’m not just saying this because I work for this brand. Serengetee has the softest, cutest clothes that are sure to satisfy your wanderlust. Whether you’re exploring a new place or just hanging at home, these products should be on your travel essentials list!
I think we could all benefit from a little escape this year. I know this one may seem weird because it’s not tangible, but one of the best things gifts I’ve received has been a night away. Add this one to your travel essentials for women list!
Even if it’s local, spending a night somewhere else can satisfy any wanderlust. Over the past few months, I’ve spent a weekend in Acadia, a fall weekend in New Hampshire leaf peeping, a day exploring Mystic, Connecticut, and more. This time away is always the EXACT escape I need. I highly recommend booking yourself a night away this holiday season!
Ok this one is more practical, but everyone should own a long iPhone charger at some point. Not only are they perfect for lounging in bed on Netflix, these chargers are definite travel essentials for women as they extend to those far-to-reach airport and train outlets. Do yourself a favor and spend the $18 on this iPhone Charger.
I bit the bullet on one of these way back in March after seeing them nonstop online and let me tell you… I’m obsessed. Casetify is known for having the most protective, fashionable cases on the market. I’ve dropped my phone SO many times while traveling and my screen has stayed perfect because of my case. Not only do they have hundreds of customizable designs (I LOVE mine), the cases are sleek and narrow, unlike competitors Life Proof or Otter Box.
Ok maybe this isn’t exactly a travel essential for women, but they do make great gifts. I got the Australia one for my friend Kaitlyn last Christmas since we studied abroad there together and bought myself the Massachusetts one a few months ago. Each place has its own unique smell and they are SO cute!
10. Black Boots
These black boots need to be on a travel essentials for women list! I’m not lying when I say these are the best boots I’ll ever own. First, they are less than $30. Second, they hold up in the rain and snow (shoutout New England). Third, they have a heel but are SO comfortable. Really, I walked 3 miles around Salem Halloween a few weeks ago and felt nothing.
PS. They’re true to size. I bought a size 8!
That’s all for my list of 10 travel essentials for women this holiday season! This is my first time writing a gift guide like this on my blog, but if you like it, I’ll be sure to write more in the future! As much as I love shopping, giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do. Happy shopping!
