MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS FOR THE MOM WHO LOVES TO TRAVEL
Nomatic Compression Packing Cubes
Packing cubes are a travel essential if you want to stay organized and find things quickly. Once I started using them, I wondered how I ever packed without them! These packing cubes from Nomatic are an upgrade from the ones I’m currently using. They’re sturdier and fit more stuff. They have a compression system that removes air and compresses clothing to save space in your luggage (which we all know is always at a premium!) They have a convenient carrying handle and are made with durable, water-resistant, lightweight rip-stop nylon and feature double-sided snag-free zippers. They make a great, practical gift for the mom who loves to travel! Buy here on Amazon.
Boxed Pen Set
I don’t know about you but I’m always looking around for a pen. In this digital age, pens seem to have become scarce commodities but we do still need them. (Check out this tip about why you should always have a pen in your bag when you travel.) This box set of rose gold pens is a great gift for Mom. It also comes in a variety of other colors, including black, white, silver, pink and turquoise. Buy here on Amazon.
Plush Velvet Travel Jewelry Box Organizer
This handy jewelry organizer is perfect for Mom’s travels. Sleek and compact, she can easily and safely store her necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets without worrying about losing them or getting things all tangled up. This plush jewelry box has 7 slot rolls, 3 rectangular divisions, and an earring compartment. But best of all, every purchase results in a donation to Water Mission, an organization that helps build sustainable clean water supply systems around the world. Buy here on Amazon.
Vineyard Vines Clothing and Accessories
Help Mom upgrade her vacation wardrobe with stylish travel must-haves from Vineyard Vines. From dresses, shirts and cozy sweatshirts to travel totes, flip flops and jewelry, Vineyard Vines has everything she’ll need to travel in style. A gift card will let her shop for herself but if you prefer to wrap something up for her, consider the Wave Tie-Dye Surfshep, Kentucky Derby Roses Flip Flops and the Tropical Palm Print Oversized Tote, all excellent choices she’s sure to love!
Brooklinen Artist Series Beach Towel
We spend a lot of time at the beach and personally, I’ve become pretty particular about my beach towel. It has to be large and soft and this beach towel from Brooklinen’s limited edition Artist Series is not only big and plush, it’s ultra-absorbent and boasts a pretty print. It’s Made in the USA and will make a stylish addition to Mom’s list of beach essentials. It’s a luxurious gift she’s sure to appreciate.
Flytographer Photo Shoot
If you’re not familiar with Flytographer, you can read all about one of our many experiences with them here. Flytographer allows travelers to hire local photographers around the world to capture your special travel moments, although you can hire one in your own hometown, too. With a local photographer, you’ll get breathtaking photos of your travels, better than any souvenir you could bring home. The best part is that you’ll get the whole family in the photo instead of having the person snapping the photo missing. Mom will cherish the family photos forever. Flytographer also has a Travel Shop, full of great gift ideas – from airport code crewneck sweatshirts to fine art prints of your favorite destinations.
Jack Wolfskin Shell
A lightweight, packable rain shell is a travel must-have because you just never know when the weather will turn unexpectedly. But the key is finding something very light that folds up so compactly, it takes up next to no room in your bag. The Jack Wolfskin rain shell for women is just that. It folds into an inner pocket for easy storage. But best of all, it fits like a dream. It’s made from environmentally-friendly fabric that is light, soft and stretchy, giving it a streamlined fit that is extremely flattering. Mom is going to love everything about this jacket and because it folds up so small, she’ll be able to take it everywhere. No seriously. Everywhere. Check out more great travel gear and packable products from Jack Wolfskin here.
Cincha Travel Belt
Mom is sure to appreciate any gift that helps to make her travels easier and this handy travel accessory is a sure winner. The Cincha Travel Belt allows her to secure her personal bag to the handle of her carry-on or checked suitcase, which will make it so much easier for her to maneuver her luggage through the airport or wherever she’s headed upon arrival. The elasticized belt means it has just enough give to secure her bag tightly but not too tightly and it has a quick-release buckle so that she can release it with one hand. Made with vegan leather accents, it comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns and you can also monogram it for Mom, giving it an extra special touch.
Belkin 3-in-1 Wireless Charger for Apple Devices
Help Mom streamline her charging with a stylish wireless charger for her iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. The Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE™ 3-in-1 Wireless Charger for Apple Devices will not only look good on her nightstand or office but will quickly and wirelessly charge all of her devices at once. No more unsightly cords all over the place – she will love this! And guess what? The iPhone charging pad will still charge her phone through her phone case (it works with most lightweight phone cases), so she’ll never need to take her phone out of the case before charging.
IBEX Travel-Friendly Clothing
Traveling in style and comfort is essential. You want to be comfortable but look good, too. Help Mom strike the perfect note with travel-friendly clothing from IBEX. On a mission to help people buy fewer but better things, their products are designed to be of the highest quality that will endure, many helping to regulate body temperature.
