Anyone who travels regularly knows that often, the journey is not always as fabulous as the destination itself. Thankfully, there are a few creature comforts that could take even the most cramped seat in economy — or most disappointing AirBnB — to a whole new level of luxury. Below, the most travel-friendly beauty gifts to give any friend who is full of wanderlust.Because a stay in a hotel room is not complete without a side of a chic, cozy fragrance. The Diptyque® Limited Edition Candle Set, 3 x 70 g ($78) collection features five of the brand’s most renowned fragrances, all in a decorative box that slides beautifully into a suitcase.
Charlotte Tilbury® the Gift of Red Carpet Red Skin ($85) contains the makeup maven’s most glamorous skincare products. Whether your giftee is a casual traveler or a red carpet gallivanter, this set is sure to please. Don’t miss the Magic Cream, which Tilbury has used backstage to give runway models their glow.
Every jetsetter knows hydration is key on long flights. Gift them a BKR® Water Bottle ($38) complete with a twist-on BKR Paris Water Balm™ ($10) so they can chug H2O in style. The ultra-hydrating lip balm on the cap provides an extra layer of skin-soothing hydration.
Hotel bedding can be a doozy sometimes. Snag your traveling buddy a silk Pillowcase from Slip® ($85). Not only are these cases incredibly soft, but the pure silk ensures hair remains smooth and frizz-free throughout the night. Pick between an array of chic colors (or leopard print!). Bonus points if you choose to monogram their initials.
Sicily by Dolce and Gabbana® ($310) may not be travelsized (in fact, it makes a statement on any vanity), but it is inspired by one of the most lust-worthy travel spots in the world — Italy. Whether your friend has been to the spot or not, she’s sure to delight in the ultra-feminine fragrance, which features notes of sandalwood and jasmine. Wander Beauty® was built on the premise that doing your makeup and skincare en route should be possible. While its TSA-approved minis are adorable any time of year, we’re loving the brand’s holiday launches, which are perfect for gifting to your plane-prone buddy. Don’t miss the Baggage Claim Eye Masks in Rose Gold ($25). Not only do they soothe undereyes like no other, but they also make for a fun selfie.
Sheet mask? Check. Face mist? Yes. Face wash, serum, and chic travel kit? Roger that. The MDNA® Travel Kit ($220) features TSA-friendly minis of all of the above — without compromising effectiveness. Plus, if it’s good enough for Madonna (the founder of the line!), it’s safe to assume it would be a well-received gift.
