Travel Gifts for the Traveling Mom

Is your mom always jetting off to the next exotic locale? Is it hard to pin her down, even for a visit on Mother’s Day? Are you unsure whether she is cruising in South America right now or visiting friends in Europe? If you are having a hard time finding a Mother’s Day gift for your jetsetting mom, here are some great ideas to get you started.

Bed Stu Voyage Bag

Moms are always looking for that perfect handbag to travel with and the Bed Stu Voyage bag can be both a stylish complement for a fun weekend away, or the ideal travel companion on a long voyage. With a classic and durable leather exterior and a sturdy cotton lining, the bag is nice and large, and has an interior pocket to stash personal items such as a phone or a toothbrush. The bag also has a detachable shoulder strap that can easily be stowed in case mom has to check her bag.

Instax Mini 8

This adorable and fun little camera just brought the Polaroid back in style. You can choose from a wide range of colors and instantly print and share your images with friends and family. A brightness dial allows for simple and easy photo customization. This is the perfect accessory for a family reunion. And the best part, they are a relatively inexpensive investment. Make sure you pick up some film packs so that mom can use it right away.

Beats by Dre Powerbeats 2

Wireless headphones are perfect for moms on the go. While most people say they are great for a workout, isn’t traveling like a really long run on the treadmill? I know that flights can often seem that way, so these headphones should be a perfect match for moms on the road weather they are strolling through the streets of a major metropolis listening to their favorite tunes or running for a flight at the airport. They are a little on the pricey side at around $199 but, hey, it’s for mom, right? They also come in a variety of fun colors.

Ray-Ban Round Metal Aviators

It’s nearly summertime and the traveling mom is going to want some time in the sun. Protect her eyes with these stylish sunnies from Ray-Ban. These classic aviator-style sunglasses can be delivered overnight (yes, that’s for you, last-minute shoppers) and they can be engraved with a special message to mom. What better way to tell her you love her? And, sweetening the deal — customization is free.

Apple Watch

If you really want to wow mom on Mother’s Day, an Apple Watch just might do the trick. I know, it’s not going to be there in time for the big day, unless you planned way ahead of time, but even if it arrives in three to four weeks, I know this mom would still be really excited. For the iPhone obsessed mom, the Apple Watch is the perfect travel companion — what with its ability to open the door at a hotel, check into a hotel, send you flight updates, book a ride on Uber and map your way around the world — and that’s just the beginning.
