With mother’s day right around the corner, it’s time to start deciding what to get for your adventure goer. With everything being locked down the last year, wanderlust is at an all-time high. Mom’s everywhere are looking to get out of the quarantine blues and start exploring the world. If your mom loves to travel these are some of the best last-minute gifts for her. She is sure to get use out of each of these items as travel begins opening up once more.
If your mom enjoys travel, but not the long flights, this sleep mask will be a major hit. Help mom get more quality sleep on the plane with a mask that doubles as Bluetooth headphones. She can tune out both noise and light, as well as relax to music straight from her phone. This mask will help make any flight more comfortable and help mom get some more zzz’s.
If you have a more adventurous mom who loves to backpack, camp, or travel abroad: this water filter straw will become her new favorite. The straw filters out 99.99% of bacteria, parasites, and even microplastics. The filtration lasts for up to 1,000 gallons of water, and every time you buy an item from Lifewater, it helps provide water to a child in need. So while it doesn’t seem like much, this tiny invention will certainly save mom when she requires clean water. Be sure to also check out some of their other products, like their filter water bottles.
One of the worst parts of traveling is constantly having to unpack and repack your suitcase. That’s where this next item comes in handy. These cubes will help keep everything organized and in the right place, so you don’t have to worry. Instead of having to completely tear your suitcase apart to find that cute dress, you can just pull out a cube. They are also major space savers. Gone are the days of mom spending hours strategically packing her suitcase to fit as much as possible. The packing system was a lifesaver for me, and I promise it will be for your mom too.
When you’re on vacation there is nothing sweeter than sitting next to the pool, cold drink in your hand, jamming to some of your favorite tunes. So why not get mom a Bluetooth speaker she can take along on her next vacation. You will want to snag one that is lightweight and can be easily packed. The JBL Flip 4 speaker is my personal favorite. It is extremely portable, has great sound quality, and is easy to use and set up. Better yet, it is waterproof, so it won’t get ruined if you use it by the pool.
Help mom fight those pesky travel wrinkles with this portable steamer. The steamer is lightweight and easy to pack. Mom will be able to quickly steam out any wrinkles that might occur from packing clothes. It is also super handy to use at home.
If mom is getting ready to travel abroad, this will be a gift she didn’t even know she needed. Several countries have very different outlets than what we do here in the United States. This small adapter will help mom be able to charge all her devices in one. It is compatible with all USB devices and even has a Type C port. It charges fast and has multiple safety features. This tiny brick is guaranteed to help mom feel more prepared for her trip around the world.
This next item is one of my personal favorite travel pouches on the market. It will hold all your passports, credit cards, boarding passes, money, etc. The pouch also has built-in RFID safeguards so mom can have peace of mind that her info will remain safe. There are multiple hook and loops which provide versatility in how the pouch can be worn, and it comes with global lost and found tags. Be sure to check out this holder, and help mom keep all her stuff organized as she travels abroad.
If mom loves to read, this next gift will be perfect for her. Why not surprise her this Mother’s Day with Amazon’s Kindle? For a limited time, you can get the kindle as low as $64.99. Help mom stay entertained on her journey by providing an endless supply of books to read. The Kindle is easy on the eyes, so it can be read anywhere, and you can find virtually any book in Amazon’s Kindle app. The charge lasts up to a week, so she won’t need to worry about charging it every night while vacationing. Not only will she be able to use this gift while traveling, but even after she has returned.
