Ultra Lightweight Packable Backpack Water Resistant Hiking Daypack
I believe that luggage is personal (and shouldn’t be cheap if you expect to last), but this ultra lightweight backpack is a great gift idea for anyone who needs to throw a few things in their bag out for a day of exploration.
Water resistant and my favorite part – packable – makes this bag extra easy to carry around. Comes in a wide range of colors with a price tag of only $16.

This is a great shirt for the single lady traveler with a great sense of humor.

I wish I had these compression socks on my last road trip to the south because it would have helped with the awful leg swelling I experienced.
These AZGO Compression Socks are great for the lady who travels often and may experience swelling or achiness in their legs or feet.
Under $14 and in a variety of fun colors, these are a must-have travel gift to share.

These are not Tieks, but these ballet flats are a nice cheap alternative. A cute pair of shoes that let the traveler get comfy while on the plane or train (without having to go barefoot).
