The Best Gifts for Travelers Who Are Also Beauty-Obsessed

Updated 11/21/17

Holiday season is officially here, and you know what that means: gifts, gifts, and more gifts. Scoping out the perfect gift is a serious skill, especially when it's for your jet-setting friend who is in a different city every time you talk to them. All beauty lovers know that traveling with products is no easy feat. Getting through TSA with your go-to products (that you've probably re-packaged into mini containers to fit the acceptable size) is an accomplishment to be proud of. Let's be honest, there's no way to make it through without in-flight beauty essentials.

Or even worse, to be without once you land. 

Whether it's a hydrating face mask or a deliciously scented perfume, there's a gift every globetrotter will love. Don't worry, we did the groundwork for you—click through for the best gifts for travelers.
