Best Travel Essentials For Moms In 2020

We’re still on lockdown, but no one said Mother’s Day was cancelled. Here are travel essentials any mom would love to receive—and use!—once it’s safe to travel again

We may be on lockdown still, but if you’re like us, we’re already planning a trip once the Expanded Community Quarantine is lifted. While we’re still obediently staying at home to help flatten the curve, we’re actually looking forward to celebrating and honoring our favorite women – moms!

Since malls and shops are still closed, we’re letting our fingers do the shopping—online! Whether you decide to give your mom or wife one big ticket item or several very timely must-haves from this list, now or post-ECQ, she will always find whatever you give her special. Any of these gift ideas may be used in her future trips or take her back to her favorite ones, even just through her memories.
