I’ll begin this post by saying that I don’t really believe in Valentine’s Day. Just like any other girl, I love flowers, gifts and fancy dinners – but I don’t enjoy them when they’re happening because some commercialized holiday said they should. I’ll pass on $150 prix fixe menus and fancy jewelry any day because let’s face it – I’d much rather spend that moolah on a plane ticket!
If you’re travel obsessed, you feel the same way and the thought of spending precious airfare dollars on a lavish dinner sounds ridiculous. But if you also kind of enjoy Valentine’s Day in all its cheesy glory (hey, no judging), here are some affordable Valentine’s Day gifts under $50 for travelers:
Flight 001 Eiffel Tower Luggage Tag, $24 // If you and your significant other can’t plan an actual trip to the world’s most romantic city, don’t fret: you can still give your luggage a chic Parisian upgrade for the next adventure with this stylish tag.
Flight 001 Eye Mask, $16 // This mask proves that it *is* possible to look fabulous even when you’re sleeping. Just hope your mouth isn’t hanging open!
Flight 001 Travel Blanket, $30 // Is it just me or is the temperature at 30,000 feet never quite right? I’m always freezing, so I always pack a travel blanket. Trust me, this one is a no-fail gift for frequent fliers.
Soap & Glory Great Kisser Lip Balm, $10 // Traveling wreaks havoc on your beauty routine, and all that time in the sky dries out your skin like nothing else. Chapped lips are the opposite of sexy, meaning a tin of quality moisturizing lip balm is essential for a romantic weekend getaway!
There’s a Map For That Necklace, $20 // Because the travel-obsessed love maps in all shapes and sizes, and this necklace goes with almost anything.
Cupcake Contest Bag, $45 // Cross body bags are the best option for days spent exploring new cities, and I love the punchy colors on this one. Spring is coming (at least I hope… #goawaywinter) and this accessory will add a pop of seasonal color to neutral ensembles.
Old Folk Scarf, $48// When in doubt, a scarf is the perfect go-to gift for travel-loving ladies. I have about a million and always pack a few so I can easily switch up my look each day. Scarves are also a must for traveling in more conservative countries like Morocco and, of course, layering in certain climates.
Rib Knit Cardigan, $35 // A cardigan is another gift that will never fail – it’s an airport style staple.
Sunbathers Case for iPhone 6, $38 // If you’d rather be at the beach but a Caribbean getaway isn’t in the cards this month, live vicariously through this super chic iPhone case from Henri Bendel.
