Gift Ideas for Traveling Moms and Tots
As the holiday’s approach, we are all in search of those perfect gifts for the people we know and love. For my favorite travelers (and myself), these are gifts make traveling easier and more comfortable.
For Mom on the go:
Lucy Walk Around Pants: ($68) I love these for traveling. They are versatile and comfortable. Add a cute shirt or pretty sweater and you’re ready to run around town. They are so stretch and light that you can even workout and sleep in them (hopefully not consecutively). The pockets are great when you need somewhere to store your items.
My Tag Alongs: This site is a hoot! With everything from emergency kits to travel sun hats, their clever designs coupled with everyday practicality makes these items very handy to have. Try the One Time Any Time Towelettes ($11) and The Emergency Valet ($28).
Cashmere Travel Set: ($350) For the woman who has everything or simply likes to be wrapped in luxury, this is the way to go. This is truly indulgent, yet somewhat practical because the blanket doubles as a wrap. Long gone are the free airplane blankets. This will have you prepared for comfort. Also love this grey cable set from Saks ($300).
Moleskin City Notebooks: ($17) For that traveler who loves to return to a city or share their favorite little spots with others, the Moleskin Guide Books are an elegant and useful choice for recording their favorite city spots. The books are compact, easily fitting into a small bag and provide ample maps and flexible space for notes.
Flee Bags: ($18) These cosmetic bags are great for durability and practicality. I have one for each kid, one for my make-up, one for electronics and the best thing about them is that they have hooks so you can clip them into bigger bags. The oilcloth makes them work well with kids and liquids. The cute styles make them work for moms.
Tory Burch Beach Tote: ($325) We all need a big bag to throw all the little things into. Whether you are on the way to the beach, throwing in an extra change of clothes or carrying your laptop and magazines with you, you need a versatile tote. This is a classic black, but there’s also a very cute silver option. Perfect for that winter getaway. For all the kids beach gear I still love my very non-stylish but hugely functional Lands End Tote ($32). I have the extra large and it fits all six of our towels, swimsuits for trips to the beach. I always pack this bag.
