My guide of the best travel gifts for moms who love to travel. The beauty of this list is not only can these items be used solely for travel, but they are just as good for everyday use.
Not just that, if you are gifting her with a gift for Christmas, her birthday or just because they are all essentials for travel moms, which means she will actually use them!
The ultimate guide for travel gifts for moms and women who love to travel!
Gifts For Travel Lovers
Calpak Mini Clear Cosmetic Case- This cosmetic case makes for a really great gift for traveling, especially for the mom who loves beauty and skin care.
- Carrying handle.
- (2) Zippered compartments.
- Can be used strictly for travel or for everyday use.
Soma Glass Straw & Travel Case- A glass straw for mom to take on her travels which comes with a travel case and a squeegee to keep clean.
Fanny Pack- One of the best fanny pack options to give as a gift for women who love to travel is the Everywhere Belt Bag from Lululemon.
For the mom traveling with a toddler, I can get a few snacks, a ziplock bag with wipes, card wallet and our passports if we need them.
It’s a sturdy fanny pack that can carry a fair amount of items and it’s water resistant. I have the black one on here.
Passport Holder- If you are looking for a simple but usable travel gift, a passport holder is an excellent choice. The Mark & Graham passport holder is leather and can be personalized.
Homesick Candle- One of the best gifts for moms that travel a lot and may get home sick on her travels is a Homesick Scented Candle.
There are many states and places to choose from, including grandma’s kitchen. LOL. Some others to choose from are San Francisco, Chicago, Hawaii, New York City and a sweet Homesick Thank You, mom candle.
Anker Power Case- We take this portable charger on all of our travels and pack it in one of our bags while out and about. We have had no issues with it and it charges our phones pretty darn quick.
It’s lightweight and compact.
Packing Cubes- Packing cubes are perfect either for long vacations or weekend getaways. The Calpak set comes with 5 pieces in 5 different sizes. There’s over 10 designs to choose from to fit your personal style. They are durable and water-resistant.
My husband and I both have a set and it makes life a little easier for us because we pack our toddler’s items in these as well.
You can see them here on one of our staycations.
Safety Alarm- For the traveling women in your life, a personal safety alarm can give a little reassurance that they can grab someone’s attention by setting off an alarm if they are in harm’s way.
- A loud siren with flashing strobe-light.
- Can be heard up to 100 feet.
- Replaceable batteries.
Google Chromecast 3rd Gen- If you’re traveling and missing some of your favorite streaming apps, the Google Chromecast is a good option to take care of some of your Netflix, YouTube or Amazon Prime needs.
But remember, if you don’t pay for a particular streaming app, you won’t be able to use it. Also, remember every country is different with streaming availability.
With the Google Chromecast, if there’s a t.v. with a HDMI port and power, it will connect.
Rechargeable Hand Warmers- A handheld rechargeable warmer that’s great for winter adventures.
- Comes in black & pink.
- Lightweight and portable.
- Quickly heats.
- Three temperature range. Low, medium and high.
- Double sided heating.
- Can be used for 4-8 hours.
- Takes 2-3 hours to charge.
Sunglasses- For mom’s next beach vacation, you just can’t go wrong with a good pair of sunnies. Quay sunglasses are a cool travel gift for mom. There’s a wide variety of styles and colors to choose from.
Unique Gifts For Mom
Power Up To USB Tassel Key-Chain– For the traveling moms to keep their phones powered up and ready to use.
PocketTalk- One of the best travel gifts for moms, especially women traveling solo, is a Pocket Talk. Having your own voice translator is certainly a luxury travel gift for her.
Why is this so fancy you ask? Because it can translate 82 languages in real time.
Fun Travel Gift For Her
Polaroid Hi-Print Pocket Photo Printer- A fun travel gift for mom is a pocket photo printer. You can print directly from your phone using the app. It prints 2×3 size images.
From the app, you can add text, emojis and filters. The photo paper has to be purchased separately. These photos only “stick” to a surface.
Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Printer- Another fun photo printer option is the Fujifilm. You can print directly from your phone and it works with movement to zoom in and out, has a “fun mode” and mom can make a collage with her photos. Comes in 5 colors.
Welcome Mat (Okay but… Did You Call Or Text First)- One of the best gifts for women who love to travel is a welcome mat with the saying “Okay but… Did you call or text first?” (… and did we answer?) The best, right? LOL We need a day or two to recover from our travels, so make sure you let mom know you’re stopping by before you actually stop by!
I have the 18 x 30 inches you can take a peek at here.
Worldwide Snack Mix- A variety of treats from around the world. All boxes contain at least 10 snacks and can be a variety of candy, chocolate, biscuits or wafers.
World Flavors Seasoning Collection– The perfect Christmas Gift for mom to enjoy over Christmas dinner. A set of 15 world flavors from air-dried tomatoes, za’atar blend to minced garlic.
Map Gifts For Moms Who Love To Travel
Personalized USA Photo Map- One of the sweetest gifts for mom is a travel photo map of all 50 states. Capture the best memories and hold on to them by adding them to this frame map. They can personalize it with names and dates. As you visit each state, add your favorite photo to the map.
There are 3 different frames to choose from or you can go without a frame. You will also have 4 color options to pick from.
Coloring Map Mug- A travel gift for moms that pair well with a good cup of coffee and a pretty awesome Mother’s Day travel mug is a coloring map mug.
Scratch Off World Map

- Comes with a pick to scratch your destinations off.
Engraved Map Glasses- The perfect Mother’s Day travel gift idea and a way to show mom a lot of thought went into her gift is this customizable glass set.
You simply provide a US address. This could be mom’s childhood neighborhood or her favorite neighborhood she traveled to in the United States. The area is engraved on the glasses as a map with a compass to pinpoint the location.

Travel Plug Adapter- Once you travel, you quickly realize how important travel plug adapters are. These are substantial gifts for men and women who love to travel. Works with European countries, Brazil, USA, China and Canada.
Another option is the Flight 4-in-1 adapter.
Bluetooth Portable Speaker- One of my favorite things to do when traveling, especially while on camping or beach trips, is to bring along a bluetooth portable speaker to play my favorite tunes.
Welly Human Repair Kit- The good thing about Welly Human Repair Kit is it’s not only great for travel but it’s also great to have on hand at home. It makes for a good Christmas travel gift to tuck away in mom’s Christmas stocking.

Luxury Travel Gifts For Her
Splurge gifts for moms that are worth the extra dollars.
New Balance- New Balance sneakers are currently all the rave and they’ve earned the praise. From vibrant colors and comfortable style, there is nothing like a good pair of sneakers while you explore your latest town.
Nespresso- Sometimes we need a vacation from our vacation and nothing can help us get ourselves back together like a good cup of coffee. I promise you the VertuoPlus coffee maker with frother is not just the perfect gift for moms who travel but it will also make the best Mother’s Day gift for travelers.
You can throw mom’s old coffee maker out because it just won’t produce such high quality coffee as this can. It may even disappoint you on how much money you’ve spent at that coffee shop on every corner.
The best part about Rothy’s is not only are they comfortable and stylish, they are washable. After a trip full of sightseeing, walking for miles with a pair of quality shoes that are washable is a fantastic option for women’s travel gifts.
Vanity Set- Beautiful travel gifts for moms are absolute! The Vanity Set is a must-have gift for the traveling woman.
- A set of 2, small & large.

- Beautifully designed.
