21 Mother's Day Gifts For Travel-Savvy Moms

Whether Mom prefers exploring the world via planes, trains, boats, or cars, these Mother's Day travel gifts will be your ticket to gifting success on Sunday. To choose the perfect gift, it's good to first consider Mom's travel style. If she's a minimalist, frequently forgoing a checked bag for the more practical carry-on option, she'll love the throwaway convenience of Savvy Traveler's jet set kit, which includes 12 disposable face and body cleansing cloths. If it's important for Mom to appear chic and polished at all times, give her the gift of versatility with TM1985's convertible leather drawstring backpack, which easily transforms from utilitarian backpack to sleek shoulder bag with one simple strap adjustment. And if you're really going for the favorite child award this year, throw in a Nest citrine-scented rollerball along with a pair of Vint & York's beesknees sunglasses for extra style points.

For the mothers who love to capture the sweet memories of their travels, the iPhone four-in-one camera lens plus Etsy eco notebook duo is the obvious way to go. Whether carry-on or suitcase-sized, by keeping Mom's personal travel style in mind, you will surely find the ideal Mother's Day gift for your favorite travel-savvy Mom.
