It’s in the bag: A good travel bag makes all the difference, and travel moms like it to be practical, efficient, easy-to-handle and yet beautiful. For a great choice, check out Beis Travel Bags, a company dedicated to all that and affordability too. Their Weekender is like Mary Poppin’s bag: Looks super cute, fits more than ever makes sense. It hooks onto a roller back for easy dashing through airports, slings over a shoulder with comfort for using on its own, and it stands up to rough and rugged times. Comes in a lovely beige, vibrant berry, pink and classic black. (https://beistravel.com)
Your own travel memories: Did your wanderlust Mom take you to some great spots as you grew up? Why not grab a lovely moleskin journal and jot down your memories. Start now with a few special stories you recall and hand write them (what a treat our own penmanship can be to a mom these days). Then leave pages open for future dreams, and let her know you’re looking to fill them – together. Think of it like a charm bracelet of stories and words; linked for her to pull out and and remember with any time she chooses. What’s better for Mother’s Day than past memories and future dreams?
