Awesome Gift Ideas for the Traveling Mom

Looking for the perfect gift for a traveling mom?

While flowers are always great, I think a thoughtful, useful present goes a long way. If your mom (or wife) travels a lot, I’ve got a few ideas to help take the shopping pressure off.

(PS maybe you could send this link to my husband… wink-wink.)

Manduka Travel Yoga Kit ($56)

Here’s a great idea for the moms who like to like to travel inward as well as travel the world.   Keep her inner om at peace and harmony wherever the road leads with this great travel kit from Manduka which includes a practice journal.  She can indulge her inner yogi from east to west and back again.

Menu Baggy Winecoat ($60)

This little number is bound to be a big hit with your mom or mother-in-law.  Not only is it cute and stylish, it’s designed for a wine bag that can be found within any 31 Bag-in-Box. The opening fits standard taps and the bag is easy to lift and carry about.  Mom can also serve her wine chilled using an ice pack or two.  Give her a gift she can use anywhere from a family outing to a girlfriend getaway.  Drinking wine out of a box has never looked so good!

Triple C BluCube Speaker

Mom can take her music or audio books on the road without the size and bulk.  This mini cube called Triple C is both adorable and bluetooth enabled.  When you pair cute with convenient, you have a speaker that is a pleasure to pack and has the best sound of any portable speaker I’ve tried.  With the brighter colors, they don’t disappear into your suitcase or blend in with all your other electronics.  This is a clear winner!!

Eton Boostbloc ($73)

Eton Boost Bloc

Moms should never be without a charged cell phone. Its part of the modern mom’s rule book, especially when your kids are calling and texting at all hours of the day (or night).  The boostbloc ensures mom can charge wherever she happens to be.  Airport, soccer practice, PTO meeting…you get the idea.  It’s a must have mommy tech tool and it charges most smartphones three times via a micro-USB cable.  She’ll never leave home without it.

Samantha Brown 2-Piece Travel Set ($139)

I travel a lot and I’m a stickler for great luggage. I worked hand-in-hand with HSN to design my own luggage line that not only lives up to my tough standards, but looks great too.  The design process really began over a decade ago when I boarded my first flight that began my job as a world traveler. A job that would take me to 54 countries, traveling many miles (I stopped counting after a million) on the road for 230 days out of the year, and checking in and out of hundreds upon hundreds of hotels.  You can count on me for a great luggage recommendation—and for a Mother’s Day gift she’ll carry with her for years to come.

One-of-a-Kind Camera Bag ($20-200)

Etsy Camera Bag

Chances are your mom is always running around at family events snapping photos to capture lasting memories.  Graduations, your first dance, ballgames, camping trips…mom is always on duty with the camera.  Don’t go out and buy a standard camera bag!  They are boxy, black and truly boring.  Mom wants to carry a bag that reflects a certain style and personality.  So get her a unique bag that looks like something she would enjoy carrying and can’t wait to pack for the next family gig or big adventure.

AirQuart Travel Ziplock ($20)

TSA Approved Quart Bag

You may have seen one of my videos Looking Gorgeous in Under 3 Ounces.  Now you can pack your own TSA compliant travel bag with all the products you need to look your best during your trip.  These fashionable bags come in several different colors and patterns to compliment your personal style. They look great, have a slim silhouette and most important provide the TSA a clear view of all your packed items.  Give this gift to mom and help her pack like a pro.

Samantha Brown Cool It Caddy ($10)

A brilliant travel cosmetic bag every woman wants and needs.  Integrated into the bag are coolant gel packs.  Pop this baby in the freezer over night and voila, your mom’s favorite make-up won’t become a melted blob of a mess.  It’s also great to keep face wipes and eye drops extra cool and refreshing on a hot day.

Buy it at HSN

 


UGG Ballet Flats ($70)

Your feet can take a beating when traveling.  Walking around airports and sitting for hours at a time requires some quality attire for the feet.  Ballet flats are perfect because they feel like slippers, yet look stylish and chic when paired with the right fashion choices.  Pick out a pair for mom, so she can breeze through the airport in comfort and style.  Here’s a cute and summer styled pair from UGG.
