1A trip

Obvious I know, but Moms who love to travel would absolutely love a surprise trip! Maybe its a romantic weekend for two or plane tickets for a week-long family vacation this summer.

For a more affordable option look into gifting a staycation. A night in a local hotel (without the kids), room service, hot bath, maybe even a massage. I have envy just writing about it.

2Extra wide scarf (Stole)

Stoles are the swiss army knives of traveling with kids. It can be a scarf, nursing cover, shall, blanket for the kids, and can completely change your outfit in a flash for your vacation photos or to erm, cover up projectile vomit, spit up and the like. They come in multiple patterns and warmth levels.

3Packable rain jacket

Traditional rain jackets can take up valuable suitcase space. On the other hand, not having one when you need it isn’t fun either. These packable rain jackets fold up super small and are great for travel.

4New Camera

A new camera is a great way to document new adventures! For a small, lightweight option the Sony A6000 is mirrorless and produces high-quality images. for something a budding photographer can grow into, I suggest the Canon 80D.

5Travel Document Organizer

This small organizer makes a big difference when getting through security with ease. A great way to keep the whole families travel documents in order for every trip.

6Kindle reader

This new version of the Kindle Paper White is waterproof making it, even more, travel/mom to small children friendly! A perfect beachside companion!

7Life Straw

If you are looking for a gift for an adventurous mom, a life straw is perfect. The life straw filters out all the bad junk so you can drink healthy, clean water directly from a puddle or stream, anywhere in the world! Now they even make integrated water bottles.

8Scratch off map

Keep track of where she’s been with a scratch-off map!

9Foldable travel backpack

These ultra-compact backpacks come in so handy.

10Super-portable car seats.

an indirect gift that is great for moms who travel often and loath carrying massive convertible car seats through the airport. For ages, three and up (weight dependant), Ride safer vests are cash tested and meet or exceed all us federal car seat standards. So it’s as safe as the huge ones but fold up smaller than a 2-liter bottle. (They also come in handy for carpools). For kids already in a booster chair, the mifold is super convenient.

11Cosmetic bag

Large, drawstring close cosmetic bags fit everything in and keep them upright.

12Bluetooth headphones

These Sony headphones provide great sound along with noise cancelation.

13Olukai sandals

These sandals are perfect for vacations. They look like flip-flops but they’re built like sneakers. Not only are they comfortable and supportive, most designed can go in and out of water.

14Anti-Theft bag

Say goodbye to wearing your backpack in front with a more comfortable Anti-Theft cross-body bag or backpack that you can wear the right way.

15Photo storage subscription

Travel photos multiply fast and can quickly burn through phone and computer storage space. You can directly upload them to Smug mug where they will stay safe in the cloud for years to come. It is also easy to share travel albums with friends and family.

16Travel infinity scarf

A travel infinity scarf is a fashionable, hands-free way to store the essentials.

17Foldable water bottle

Silicone water bottles can be folded up when not in use making them great travel companions.

18Go Pro

GoPro’s are always a great gift but they are especially great for moms. They are tiny and can go right into your pocket. You don’t have to worry about your kids breaking them and it’s one of the best ways to preserve vacation memories in video form.

19Travel Jewelry case

Cute, compact, and practical, these jewelry boxes are great for women on the go.
