Camila Tote by Tumi Perfect for Traveling

The Camila Tote, from Tumi's stylish Sinclair collection, is an updated tote bag that integrates modern functionality with a classic design structure. Made to carry by hand or crossbody style, the purse comes in a variety of colors. Our favorite is this orange hue, with just the right amount of amber to make it perfect for year-round travel.

Tory Burch Flats On the Go

The most important thing to keep in mind when packing is to choose items that can do double duty. Shoes should transition easily from sightseeing to dining out and go with every outfit. Lightweight flats, in a metallic hue, are the perfect multi-tasker. Tory Burch’s Minnie Travel Ballet Flat are comfortable and stylish, with the added bonus of an elasticized heel for a snug, no-slip fit.

Chantecaille Gold Under Eye Mask

Long flights can dehydrate your skin and leave you looking haggard. Tuck a pack of Chantecaille’s Gold Energizing Eye-Recovery Masks in your carry-on, and apply 20 minutes before landing. The seaweed-based, gold-infused formula will have you--and Mom--looking rested and bright-eyed by the time the pilot pulls into the gate.

Hotel Room Nights via SPG Points

Remember when mom used to yell from the kitchen, “All I want is some peace and quiet!”?

This can be achieved by giving mom just one night in a luxe, well-appointed hotel room. While most hotel chains offer some form of gift certificate program, we like SPG’s Starpoints programs for its ease of use; just provide the person’s email that is associated with their SPG account, and you can give them up to 30,000 points. On top of that, program members can redeem Starpoints at over 1,300 hotels worldwide, across eleven brands including W, Westin, Sheraton, Le Meridien, and more.

Delta eGift

“Don’t send them something, send them somewhere.” This motto behind Delta’s popular eGift program is exactly what every travel-loving mother wants to hear.

Recently, the carrier has made headlines for their customer service wins, such as when they provided pizza for stranded passengers and raised their monetary rewards cap for overbooked passengers. Needless to say, Delta has our vote for the air travel gift certificate that’s perfect for Mother’s Day, or any holiday. Recipients can use their Delta eGift towards both ticket purchase and seat upgrades.
