Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, and we want to help you get the best gifts for your mom! Celebrate her on May 14th this year by giving her the gift of travel or help her travel in style with some handy travel accessories. Whether it be a new suitcase or a flight to her favorite destination, there is no better way to say thank you than a nice getaway!
1. Help her relax with some good headphones
A pair of good headphones can make or break a flight, and your mom deserves the best! Bose and Beats by Dre provide premium sound with noise cancellation. They also have earphones and wireless headphones depending on what mom prefers. If she doesn’t listen to music much, you could always get her a pair of noise canceling headphones, like the Sony Noise Canceling Headphones.
2. Buy her a travel gift card
If you aren’t sure what to get mom this year for Mother’s Day a good option could be a gift card. However, it can be disappointing to get a gift card to somewhere you don’t really shop at. The solution is to get your mom a gift card for traveling! Any airline or hotel chain offers gift cards of almost any amount. You can buy her a roundtrip flight to her favorite destination or a few nights at a comfy hotel. Just pick her favorite airline or hotel, go on their website and search for gift cards. Some also sell their gift cards in retail stores.
3. Treat her to a new luggage set
Moms are known to take care of everyone, but sometimes they forget to take care of themselves! Many moms end of using miscellaneous bags and suitcases to transport their travel necessities. Switch it up and get her a fashionable luggage set that will last through all her travels, like this set from Steve Madden on Amazon. Don’t forget to get a luggage tag too!
4. Make her a photo book with your favorite travel memories
What better way to remind your mom how special she is than to reminisce old memories. Making a photo book is easier than ever with websites like Shutterfly.com that offer custom-made photo books starting at $19.99. Just upload your favorite vacation photos, customize the text and send it right to her mailbox! You can also give her a fun travel themed photo album with mementos like maps and memories from the trip.
5. Give her the gift of comfort
Those tiny airplane headrests can be tiny and uncomfortable. She will never forget a gift as considerate and useful as a travel neck pillow. Amazon sells a variety of great options, like the Aeris memory foam travel neck pillow that comes with a portable carrying bag, sleep mask and earplugs.
6. Get her a world travel map pin board
If your mom is a fan of Pinterest then she’ll love a real-life world map pin board. All travelers have a bucket list, and what better way to show where you’ve been and where you want to go than on a map. This can be a fun way to get the family involved and compete for who has been the most places.
7. Tell her she’s ‘tote’-ally awesome with a new tote bag
Getting your travel gear in order can be a pain, especially when you only have a tiny purse or backpack to put it in. Help mom get organized on her travels with a new tote bag. Michael Kors has stylish options as well as Amazon and there are even tote bags with built in laptop or IPad sleeves.
8. Give her travel sized perfume
Most moms have that signature perfume that they can’t live without. Get her a few small bottles of her favorite scents that she can take with her on all her travels. Sephora offers a variety of brands in travel size including Prada, Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren perfumes. You can accompany the gift with a fashionable travel makeup bag or a new lipstick shade. We also recently recommended these travel-sized beauty products.
9. Help her capture the moment with a new camera
A good camera can make or break your trip pictures, so why not give your mom one she can use forever. Although cameras can be pricier gifts, it is definitely worth the awesome pictures your mom will be able to capture! Some siblings like to split larger ticket gifts and give as a group. Decent point and shoot cameras start at $150 and some packages include memory cards and traveling cases.
