As Mother's Day approaches, many of us are on the lookout for the perfect gift to show our appreciation for the incredible women who raised us. And for those moms who love to travel, the options can seem endless!
When considering what to gift your mom, Starlight2Travel always recommends travel-related gifts! A trip is the ultimate gift, of course, because moms just want to spend more time with their kids (and grandkids and families!). Although, if you already have a family trip planned for the year, you can always gift your mom a cool travel gadget to bring along on the adventure.
To help with any last-minute shopping, we've compiled a helpful list of gift ideas for the traveling mom, including some trip ideas that make for perfect presents.
1. Travel-Friendly Accessories
No matter where a mom is headed, there are certain accessories that can make her travels easier and more enjoyable. Consider gifting her a new trendy portal cell phone gadget, a super modern, thin and sturdy suitcase, a lightweight travel pillow and blanket, a trendy hygiene case, or large compressing packing cubes.
2. Travel Journal
For moms who love to document their adventures, a travel journal can be the perfect gift. There are many different types of travel journals available, from those with pre-designed pages to those with blank pages for free-form writing and drawing.
3. Travel Books
For moms who love to read, a travel book can be a great gift. Consider books that showcase different destinations, such as travel guides or memoirs from other travelers. Alternatively, look for books about the history or culture of a particular destination.
4. Spa Treatment Gift Certificates
After a long day of traveling, a mom may appreciate a little pampering. Consider gifting her a spa treatment, such as a massage, facial, or pedicure, to help her relax and unwind. Contact us to plan a spa day during your up[coming trip with S2T.
5. Cooking Classes for Your Trip
For moms who love to experience new cultures through food, a cooking class can be a fun and educational gift. Look for classes that teach the cuisine of a particular destination, such as a sushi-making class in Japan or a pasta-making class in Italy. You may be able to find some cool activities to plan during your trip with S2T here.
If you're debating what type of trip you should plan for the special mom in your life, here are some great trip ideas...
For moms who love the sun, sand, and surf, a beach vacation can be a perfect gift. Consider destinations such as Hawaii, the Caribbean, or Mexico for a relaxing getaway.
For moms who love to explore urban environments, a city break can be a great gift. Look for destinations such as New York City, Vegas, or Chicago for a quick US trip.
For moms who love to crave to see the world, consider a trip like an Alaskan cruise or a Mediterranean Cruise. If you prefer to fly and stay on land, maybe an guided or self-guided tour in Ireland or Iceland.
For moms who love to focus on their health and well-being, a wellness retreat can be a rejuvenating gift. Look for destinations such as Mexico, Jamaica, Bali, Thailand, or Costa Rica for yoga, meditation, and other wellness activities.
No matter what you choose to gift your traveling mom this Mother's Day, the most important thing is to show her how much you appreciate her and all that she does. We're looking forward to spending some time with our moms over the next few weeks as well!
