Finding the best gifts for a traveling business woman is trickier than just shopping for usual travel gifts. She mainly travels for work which means she doesn’t have a lot of time for sightseeing, and her hotel is probably good enough to have all the necessities she may request. Thus, she’ll have no use for your typical travel gift ideas such as microfiber towel or camping hammock: you need to be more thorough.
There are many ways to show a business woman that you care about her, no matter what your relationship is. As a frequent business traveler, she needs accessories to stay comfortable during long flights, practical devices to not worry about distractions at work, and some cozy things to keep at home that remind her about the best trips.
In this gift guide, you’ll find 27 best gifts for business travelers that are useful for someone who travels a lot for work. Most of these travel gift ideas are pretty unique so your female entrepreneur friend most likely doesn’t have them yet! Let’s find a perfect gift for her now!
1. Tracker for things
Have you ever misplaced important stuff like keys or your wallet? When you have a tiny tracker attached to it, it’s not a problem anymore.
Just open the app on your phone and it will quickly find your belongings for you! Especially a life-saver in business travel situations when you are in-between airports and hotels all the time.
2. Moisturizing face mask
EBANEL COLLAGEN FACE MASK
Airplane air is the worst! By applying a moisturizing face mask during or after the flight, the skin will thank you as soon as it gets hydrated and rejuvenated.
3. External hard drive
SAMSUNG 2TB T5 PORTABLE SOLID-STATE DRIVE
B&H Photo Video
Whether for storing back-ups of important data or for quick access to information without a laptop, an external hard drive is great in taking care of your files.
Forget about those huge and heavy bricks! This one is tiny and can hold up to 2 terabytes.
4. Luggage tag
THE LUGGAGE TAG
Is she always worried about airlines losing the suitcase? No more! Give her a stylish-looking luggage tag to put contact details on it – and let her travel worry-free.
ANKER POWERCORE 13000
If you are looking for gifts for someone who travels a lot for work, a portable charger may be a good fit. Smartphones tend to get out of juice pretty quickly these days, and it’s crucial for a businesswoman to always stay reachable!
6. Portable second screen
SIDETRAK SWIVEL ATTACHABLE PORTABLE MONITOR
If she is used to working with a dual-monitor setup, why not give her a portable one? Travel laptops are always so tiny, and an attachable monitor may be exactly what she needs to have a comfortable working environment, wherever she is.
7. Audible subscription
AUDIBLE GIFT MEMBERSHIP
Why waste those precious hours on a plane? Let her relax with a good audiobook, whether it’s business-related or an intriguing novel.
They have different gift subscription options from 1 to 12 month, choose whatever fits your budget!
8. Inspiring candle
BOSS LADY BY MALICIOUS WOMEN CANDLE CO
Who doesn’t love candles? Traveler or not, she is a hard-working woman who needs your support and encouragement. A nicely-scented candle that says “Boss Lady” shows just that.

9. World scratch map
What’s more inspiring for a traveler than to see all the places you’ve visited! A scratch-off world map is not only a nice decor piece to add to any wall, but also a never-ending source of inspiration for future journeys.
If her trips are mainly local, consider this beautiful America scratch-off poster instead.
10. Tea collection
TEA FROM AROUND THE WORLD SET
A business traveler may sometimes get so busy that she doesn’t even have the time to enjoy what the new place has to offer.
Here is a collection of tea from all over the world to bring up some good memories about the smells and tastes of places she’s visited.
11. Toiletry bag
THE CLEAR POUCH SET
We all have to stick to the rules when it comes to flying. This set of bags helps a business woman to look cool and professional even when she has to comply with liquid restrictions.
A set of small empty bottles in a simple bag is also an option if that’s more in your budget.
12. Dry shampoo
BATISTE MINI 1.6 OUNCE VARIETY PACK
If she travels a lot, she knows it’s not easy to always look good and fresh for business meetings, especially after a long flight.
Dry shampoo can be a life-saver and a very thoughtful gift for your girl boss friend! Batiste is my personal favorite and it comes in tiny bottles to fit in that toiletry bag from above.
13. Packing cubes
THE INSIDER PACKING CUBES (SET OF 6)
Is she a well-organized person? If yes, she will appreciate this useful gift idea. If she is not, then the cubes will help her be more organized when she travels!
There is also a smaller option, which is a set of 4 cubes, in case she is a minimalist with her luggage.
14. Phone case
HUSTLE IPHONE CASE
There is no such thing as too many smartphone cases. Buy her a fun one that still looks professional when she is using her phone during important meetings.
15. Neck pillow
AIRCOMFY INFLATABLE NECK TRAVEL PILLOW
An inflatable neck pillow is one of the nice gifts for a business traveler who still needs to look serious and not like some carefree tourist walking around with a fluffy thing around her neck.
This one is especially cool as it has a built-in mechanism for easily inflating it without blowing!
16. Framed art print
STREET VIEW OF MANHATTAN
If you know her favorite destination, an art print with a beautiful drawing or a photo of that place is a very nice and unique gift idea for a frequent traveler.
It’s personalized enough, beautiful, and something to remind her about that lovely city when she is back at home.
17. Cocktail shaker kit
KOVITI 12 PIECE BARTENDER KIT
After a long and exhausting business trip, she’ll likely want a quiet relaxing evening at home with her girl friends. Why go to a loud bar if you can make your favorite drinks yourself and not pay anyone?
18. Self-care subscription box
With all the things she needs to handle on a daily basis, a businesswoman rarely has time for herself. This is why these self-care boxes are so popular!
Everything you need for self-care as a woman is delivered once a month right to your doorstep. She’ll be genuinely blown away by this gift!
19. Collapsible travel mug
STOJO COLLAPSIBLE COFFEE CUP
Show me a business woman who never drinks coffee on the go, and maybe I’ll believe you.
Collapsible coffee cup is a great gift for business travelers as it is environment-friendly and doesn’t take a lot of space in the bag!
SEVEN FLOWERS TRAVEL SCARF WITH ZIPPER POCKET
Practical and cute, this scarf will safely hold all your belongings where nobody will ever think to steal them from.
Even if you lose your bag, the most important stuff like phone and money stays with you! And it’s a nice accessory as well, just look at this classy plaid pattern!
21. Passport Holder
GENUINE LEATHER PASSPORT HOLDER
A good durable passport holder with RFID protection for credit cards is probably one of the best business travel gifts for her – that is, if she doesn’t have one already.
This one has a snap button to keep things together and comes in a variety of colors to please any businesswoman.
22. Laptop friendly tote bag
LAPTOP TOTE BAG FOR WOMEN
If laptop backpacks don’t really fit your style, a good sturdy tote bag is the way to go. It works greatly as hand luggage and lets you avoid bringing extra bags.
Not only this water resistance travel bag fits your laptop and has multiple compartments for other things, it also doesn’t give up that you have one – as opposed to specialized laptop bags that are an easy target for stealers.
23. Illustrated travel book
50 STATES, 5,000 IDEAS: WHERE TO GO, WHEN TO GO, WHAT TO SEE, WHAT TO DO
A beautiful book with travel tips is one of the really useful gifts for someone who travels for work frequently around the US.
Even when there aren’t any extra days off to see the city, there are always a few hours here and there to get the taste of a place. By reading about your next destination right before the trip, you’ll always be ready when the opportunity to walk around presents itself.
24. Noise canceling headphones
BOSE QUIETCOMFORT 20 ACOUSTIC NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
Whether to cut out the sound of a crying baby on a plane, or to focus in silence before an important speech, a good-quality pair of noise canceling headphones is always handy.

25. Portable adult coloring book
COLOR CALM COLORING BOOK
Bringing an adult coloring book and a bunch of pencils on a plane is another way to let a few hours fly by.
The process of coloring is not only for children anymore! It’s a calming activity to prepare your mind for a work presentation or an important meeting.
