Budget: Under $20

A Travel Towel

A towel is totally handy for those budget accommodations that don’t provide them, but a normal towel is too bulky to take on the road, which is why I love a microfiber towel made for travel. The Sunland Microfiber travel towel is light, compact, and quick to dry. Gift this and you’ll totally get points for being so thoughtful!
