Gift Ideas for Adventure Seeking Women for All Budgets

Noise Canceling Earphones

From one traveler extraordinaire to another, I am recommending two noise cancelling earphone options.

The AirPods Pro (affiliate) earbuds pair seamlessly with an iPhone if the adventure seeking women in your life are Apple products users.

These earphones also have the benefit of being small and lightweight. Perfect for any day of celebration. Don’t forget the AirPods Pro Silicone Carrying Case(affiliate).

The benefit to the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones(affiliate) is that they are corded and offer less chances of falling out of an adventure seeker’s ears and getting lost as she sleeps on an airplane. Also, you can plug into the plane’s onboard system to watch movies or listen to music.


Lightweight Samsonite Luggage(affiliate) is always a great option for travel especially if you are having to lift the luggage overhead to store in airplane storage bins, onto trains, or up flights of stairs when the Airbnb you have chosen has no elevator.

The North Face Recon Backpack for Adventure Seeking Women

I love this carry-on Backpack(affiliate) designed specifically for women and moms. It has a variety of features:

  • a padded laptop or iPad (affiliate) section
  • a large middle section for my camera insert (affiliate)
  • lots of pockets
  • expandable side pockets for a water bottle, easily accessible hand sanitizer, and Blistex (affiliates)
  • a mesh front pocket
  • a sternum strap
  • a waist belt

Travelon Carry-on

If the adventure seeking women in your life would enjoy something a little more classy and stylish yet functional, try the Travelon Heritage Tote(affiliate). It features a zippered RFID pocket, cut resistant handles, and numerous pockets and abundant space.

PCA Sunscreen

For all adventure seeking women (and men) whether you are traveling or at home, I recommend the PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45(affiliate) sunscreen with zinc oxide. This sunscreen is sweat and water resistant and is an everyday essential. I’ve got my whole family, my husband included, hooked on this stuff. And it works brilliantly to protect beautiful faces.

Canon 6d Mark II Camera

Because I am one of those adventure seeking women who is all about taking pictures when I travel, my Canon 6d Mark II (affiliate) camera, lenses(affiliate) and accessories are perfect to bring along on vacation.

Is your mom, girlfriend, sister, or friend new to photography? Encourage them to travel lightly with an iPhone(affiliate) (they take some pretty tremendous pictures) or start with the Canon T8i DSLR(affiliate) for a little more control of their pictures.

I would also recommend that she check out my photography mentor, Audrey Ann at Live Snap Love. If all of your adventure seeking women friends want to UP their photography game, have them check out Audrey’s courses!

A mom with her daughters in Colmar, France

And look at crazy me! My camera in one hand and my Cell Phone(affiliate) in the other poised to take pictures. I have to jump in some pictures just so people know I was on vacation too!

Travelon Passport Wallet RFID for Adventure Seeking Women

The Travelon Passport Wallet with RFID(affiliate) is perfect for securely storing a passport, credit cards, and a little extra cash.

Portable Charger

Does your mom use a cell phone(affiliate) throughout the day on vacation (or even in the car pool lane) for taking photos, getting directions, checking maps, figuring out transportation, or researching on the internet, suggest she pack a Portable Charger (affiliate) so she can recharge her phone when needed. If Mom is using her phone for all of those activities, she will most likely use up her phone battery before the end of the day.

And…remind her to remember to pack all of the necessary charging cables.

Amazon Gift Card

What could be better than an Amazon Gift Card(affiliate) for the adventure seeking women? They get to choose exactly what they need for travel or photography, and you get the kudos.

If you (or your mom) don’t already have Amazon Prime (affiliate), try it out. The perks include FREE two-day shipping, being able to instantly stream movies and TV shows, access to books and music and online shopping lists, and more.

Special offer! Try Amazon Prime FREE for 30 days (affiliate)

If you are a student, you can try Amazon Prime for 6 months (affiliate) too!

I love Amazon Prime. Check out some of My Favorite Travel Things 👈 here

An iPad(affiliate) or tablet is definitely a travel must-have AND an adventure seekers must-have. I use mine for:

  • Storing all information related to our vacation—dates, locations, activities, booked flights, hotel, and transportation
  • Reviewing in the evening for the next day
  • Unwinding or relaxing while reading an eBook
  • “Facetiming” with family at home
  • Watching a downloaded movie. Check out the options from Amazon Prime Movies (affiliate).
  • Journaling throughout vacation
  • Blogging on the long flight home

Travel Journal

In order for me to remember all of the events of each day as I travel, I use a Travel Journal to record dates, locations, adventures, mishaps, and funny moments.

Apple Watch for Adventure Seeking Women

Smart watches(affiliate), especially the Apple Watch Series 3 (affiliate) that I wear, come in a variety of shapes, colors, and tracking abilities. Perfect for making sure the family is always on time.

Toss in the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable (affiliate) as well to make sure the watch is charged everyday and ready to go when you are.

Hanging Toiletry Bag

This BagSmart Hanging Toiletry Bag (affiliate) is convenient and organizes essential toiletries. ‘Cause, let’s face it, most adventure seeking women travel with beauty essentials too!

Travel Necklace

Who doesn’t love a little bit of bling? Travel Necklace(affiliate) anyone?

Compass pendant travel necklace

Or how about this Sterling Silver Digital Camera Pendant(affiliate)?

Digital camera necklace

Or just a beautiful Floating Heart Necklace(affiliate), a token of just how much the adventure seeking women in your life mean to you.

Mom with her daughters

Won’t the women in your life look stylin’ in a beautiful pair of Sunglasses(affiliate)? With the added benefit of eye protection. Fashion and function all in one!

Your idea of sharing travel-inspired gifts just prior to Mothers Day this year is just fabulously timed, now that vaccinations for Covid are happening and travel will be opening up again soon. I love the selection you have included here and it really does get me quite excited to think we could be jetting off somewhere again shortly. Any Mom would be keen to receive a gift that prompts you to start planning some exciting travel destination again!
