10 Must-Have Mother’s Day Gifts for Moms Who Love to Travel

Gifts for the Traveling Mama

As I write this, Mother’s Day is just over two weeks away. Rather than put off buying a gift for the woman who raised you until the last possible minute, why not put in a little advance thought and get her a gift that she will really love? I’ll even make it easy for you. Here are the best gifts for moms who love to travel. (I know, because they’re on my own wish list!)

1. Travel Journal

There are so many travel journals to choose from. Leather bound or paperback, personalized or generic, plain pages or embellished, specific to a certain destination or suitable for travel anywhere.  And most of them are just stunning. There are journals for listmakers, for those who want to write long flowery paragraphs, for travelers who like to save scraps of paper like ticket stubs, and for those who want to turn the journal into a scrapbook by adding photos.  No matter what kind of traveler your mom is (or aspires to be), you can find a travel journal to suit her. Here’s my favorite:

Isn’t it gorgeous? Who wouldn’t want to preserve their travel memories in a cool-looking book like this one?

2. Wanderlust Jewelry

There are so many gorgeous pieces of jewelry for travel-loving moms.  Here are a few of my favorites:

3. Passport Cover

Immigration/TSA officials aren’t big fans of the passport cover, but they add a little mystery and elegance to an otherwise boring legal document that contains a less-than-flattering photo of you. Also, moms like me end up holding everyone’s passports, and a cover makes it easier to know which one belongs to each person. Finally, passport covers with slots for debit cards, cash, boarding pass or other items are pretty darn practical. Here are two that I love:

And I especially love this one for its corny humor:

4. World Map with Pins

What better way to showcase your adventures than with a handsome map of the world and pins marking where you’ve been. This particular one features personalization and a color key – so that individual family members’ travels can be marked and color coded.

5. An End to Cord Chaos

One thing that drives me crazy when we’re traveling is trying to maintain some semblance of order when it comes to our cords, chargers, outlet adapters, etc. This nifty organizing pouch not only has a gorgeous map on the outside, it also has a neatly sectioned interior for storing such items when not in use.

It could also be used for toiletries, pens & notepads, or pretty much any small items that can get easily lost or disorganized.

6. Luggage Tag

Have you ever really taken notice of how many black suitcases go for a ride around the airport baggage carousel?  A lot. So help her luggage stand out with a distinctive luggage tag.  Here are two that I especially like:

8. A Secret Pocket

This is a great item because it’s stylish and practical – an infinity scarf with a hidden pocket for ID, cash or credit card. No need to worry about pickpockets with this!

9. Vintage Style Travel Poster

Why not get mom a poster/print of one of her favorite destinations (or one that she’s dreaming of visiting some day)? The vintage style prints hearken back to a time when every town had a travel agent on the main street, enticing passersby to come in and book their next adventure.
