Travel Beauty Gifts for Women

Written by: Emily Souza Rutkowski




Birchbox Gift Subscription


Gift Subscription


I have both given and received Birchbox as a gift and have always been pleased. Birchbox sends a monthly box with sample-sized beauty and lifestyle products.

You, as the giver, pick the theme of the first box (customer favorites/classic/trendsetter) and then your recipient can go online to select the theme of future boxes. Subscriptions can be purchased in three, six, and twelve-month increments. There are both female and male boxes, so this is an option for the men in your life as well! Birchbox has a number of other full-sized products available on their site in addition to the boxes.




Pinch Provisions Minimergency Kit


Mini-Emergency Kit


Being a sucker for little pouches filled with mini-goodies, I absolutely love these kits. They are tiny enough to fit into any bag, and have everything you need for a travel beauty emergency on the go!

One of my bridesmaids gave me the wedding version, and it was perfect for the day-of as well as our honeymoon. There are multiple designs and themes available, so you are sure to find one perfect for your special someone.




Living Proof No Frizz Travel Kit


Hair Travel Kit


As the name suggests, Living Proof makes it easy to have a perfect hair day wherever you are. I personally do not like to use the generic shampoo in hotels. This kit makes it easy to fit all the hair products you need in your quart-sized bag, and still have room for other essentials.

With these products, the only thing you may need in addition is a small hairspray or other finisher. And the products smell amazing! There are alternative travel sets available as well, including Full Volume & Body Boosting, Restore Repairing & Damage Reversing, and No Frizz Smoothing & Frizz Fighting.




L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow


L.A Girl


Jazz up your cosmetic tool kit with the L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection Palette. It offers you a contemporary range, letting you create stunning looks.

Whether you’re fashioning a smoky eye for date night or just need a little shimmer for the office, this L.A. Girl eyeshadow palette is a must-have resource.




Burts Bees Essential Everyday Beauty Gift Set


Burt’s Bees


Give the gift of ultimate nurturing with Burt’s Bees Essential Beauty Gift Set. Included are five trial size versions of our Burt’s Bees favorites that pamper and nurture.
