The last couple of months haven’t been easy for anyone. Yet, the calendar pages keep turning. Which brings us to the month of May, and, of course, Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of the month (10th May this year).  While Mother’s Day this year probably won’t be the same as previous years – there’ll be no big family brunches or days at the spa – we can still spoil our jet setting Mum’s and bring the spirit of travel home to them. Even while she’s staying safe at home, these are some of the best gifts for your travel-loving Mum you can get this Mother’s Day.

Luxury Hotel Sheet Set

If your Mum enjoys the finer things in life, she’ll love reliving ritzy hotel stays with a set of luxury bed sheets. Our pick? Sheridan 1000tc Hotel Luxury Sheet Set.

Create the Perfect Day Spa at Home

Just because the day spas are all closed for the time being, doesn’t mean that you can’t create a nice, relaxing spa scene at home! All you need is a nice scent (candles, infuser), some bubble bath, nice body scrub and smooth body cream. You can save time on buying each item separately and buy them together in a gift set, like these ones from L’Occitane.

Make a Travel Photo Album

Put all of those old family holiday photos that have been collecting dust together into an album or photobook. No doubt, it’ll make Mum grin from ear-to-ear as she remembers all of the special memories you have together.

Prepare for Future Travels

Nothing gets you excited for future travel plans quite like knowing that you’ll look good, so help Mum to look the part by spoiling her with new, stylish travel accessories. Some of our favourite must-have travel accessories include a neat, sophisticated travel wallet, a sturdy backpack and easy-to-recognise luggage tags.

Bring the Destination Home

As we can’t take Mum to her favourite holiday destination this year, bring it to her. Homesick Candles are made with soy wax and each pay homage to specific cities, states and countries around the world. For example, Hawaii has strong coconut and pineapple notes,  while France has strong butter and coffee notes, with subtle notes of vanilla, tobacco, bread and musk. 

Boarding Pass Phone Cases

No doubt, your Mum is spending more time on her phone at the moment, video-calling family and friends. While you can’t travel together at the moment, you can help her to think of the trip you’ll take together when we can venture the world again. How? With a Casetify phone case with an embellished boarding pass. From Osaka to Miami and everywhere in between, there are plenty of cities for you to choose from!
