2019 Mother’s Day Gift Guide For Travelers + GIVEAWAY

2019 Mother’s Day Gift Guide For Travelers + GIVEAWAY

Spring is finally here and Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If your mom is always on the go and whisking away to exciting destinations, then this is the gift guide for her. And in order to help make your shopping even easier, I am giving away a $100 VISA Gift Card to one lucky reader. Good luck!

***To enter, leave a comment below saying which item on this list you’d buy for that special person in your life, AND follow me on at least 1 of the following: Instagram or Facebook. Following me on both platforms will increase your chances of winning. Open to U.S. readers only.***

First things first, whatever you choose to gift your mother or mother figure in your life, you need to make sure you pair it with a thoughtful card! Cardtorial creates meaningful and beautiful wooden cards that are absolute keepsakes. Along with their cards, they also make lovely wooden boxes, frames, ornaments, and more. Their products are hand-crafted, sustainable wood, and a fantastic gift idea for any special person in your life.

Longchamp Nylon Tote

I rarely leave the house (let alone on a long-haul trip) without my Longchamp bag. They’ve perfected the Nylon Tote and this classic style is chic, practical, and versatile. I enjoy the black and brown model, but there are so many to choose from.

Silk Pillowcase 

If you’re going to only invest in one piece of silk bedding, have it be a silk pillowcase! Resting your face on silk every night has been proven to help your skin stay healthy and smooth, especially when it comes to reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. It’s also very easy to fold up and travel with so you can enjoy the comforts of home on any trip!

Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones

Noise cancelling headphones are essential for any flight, especially if you’re enjoying a vacation away from your kiddos and want to start relaxing the moment you enter the airplane! To make things more enjoyable and convenient, these stylish rose gold Beats Headphones are wireless. No more fumbling around your purse trying to untangle any cords. They come in many stylish colors, which you can browse here!

Away Luggage

Away Travel has managed to create luggage that is both functional and very stylish. Their suitcases meet all of my personal requirements: hardshell, 4 wheels, variety of colors, and a built-in charging point! I’d take their Carry-On bag (which comes in 2 sizes) anywhere with me, it is durable and should be on any traveler’s wishlist – including a traveling mom like me!

DJI Spark Drone

When drones first came onto the market, I knew I wanted one. Thankfully, they’ve made them more compact and portable now so you don’t have to bring an entirely separate piece of luggage to take one on your next trip! My go-to is the DJI Spark model, and I always look forward to taking it along on any trip or even for an afternoon to the beach or park.

Airbnb Experiences

Sometimes gifting an experience you can enjoy together is better than a material item! I know most people are familiar with the popular rental website, but Airbnb is offering so much more now. You can really learn how to live like a local by having an actual local take you around to see the sights. Airbnb Experiences can range from sightseeing or a foodie experience to training with a true samurai artist! There are so many unique experiences to choose from and if you’re considering this as a gift for mom but aren’t sure which one she’ll enjoy, Airbnb provides gift cards as well. I always recommend taking food tours when you travel as a way to get to know a destination’s history and culture through food! I highly recommend this experience in beautiful Southern California that I recently enjoyed with my family.

Premium Roses

Flowers might be a cliche gift, but these are no ordinary flowers. Premium Roses were designed and assembled in the heart of Silicon Valley, the home to cutting edge technology and creativity. Believe it or not, these beautiful roses require zero maintenance care and impressively last for an entire year! AND they come in a stylish box which you can keep on your bedside table or any spot in the house. These are perfect for a travel loving mom who isn’t home enough to remember to water the plants on a weekly basis!

      I always love flowers for any occasion!

  16. What a lovely list of gifts! My mother would certainly love the wooden card along with some flowers, as she doesn’t travel anymore. As a mum, I would be the happy recipient of any of the above 😉 I think I’ll pass the list onto my kids!

    • Carmen Edelson

      I hope your kids get you some of these treats 🙂

  19. So many awesome items on this list. I love my Away suitcase and gifting that to my mom would be awesome. I also love those pink headphones. Nice headphones make a huge difference when flying. Not sure if my mom would use a drone alone, but she might use it with her grandkids 🙂

    • Carmen Edelson

      You could never go wrong with an Away suitcase!

  20. So many goodies on this list. The Away is a must-have! I have one and absolutely love it. I also think the headphones are great for the frequent flyer 🙂

  25. Good call on the silk pillowcase – my wife started using one recently and LOVES it! I have my eye on that drone package…that’s for me though, not for my mom! 🙂

    • Carmen Edelson

      They are amazing pillowcases, your wife is smart 🙂

  26. I think I need to buy myself a pair of Beats. 😉 I get so tired of using those throw-away types on the planes and such. Silk pillow case…remember the days of the good ole fashioned satin ones that our grandmothers used? 😉

    • Carmen Edelson

      Ha, I do remember!

    My mom travels to visit us many times each year, so I think she’d love a new Away carry-on. As for me, if I were receiving something for Mother’s Day I’d choose a surprise Air BnB experience. It sounds so fun!

    • Carmen Edelson

      You can’t go wrong with any of these fabulous options!
