Show her the love with these special gifts for travelling moms
By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva
If your Mom is a cruise buff, we bet she is anxious to get back on board. And it won’t be long. Cruises are resuming as early as June. If she’s planning to sail and you are wracking your brain to find her a suitable Mother’s Day gift, here are some dual-purpose ideas to make her voyage more enjoyable. (However, if she hasn’t already booked a cruise, why no treat to one. Just call a helpful, handy Pavlus agent who will help you find a cruise fit for a Mom.
Give her the look of eternal youth
Shower Mom with a luxurious skincare swag bag, fit for celebrity moms like Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Mindy Kaling. Products include an overnight renewal mask from Masktini; Vegan dry shampoo from Colab; lavender-infused body oil from earth-conscious brand, Earth’s Shell, Isa Lazo’s soothing facial oil and Clean hair care gift set from Odele.
Add some sun protection
She will also need lots of sunscreen. You don’t want her to get a sun burn or worse, skin cancer. I am also a beauty writer and as such discover great new products. Two of them are highly-effective sunscreens. One is C’est Moi’s newest collection. Besides the cute French name, C’est Moi’s EWG-verified mineral SPF collections are all formulated with soothing, safe and gentle ingredients that will hug her skin. (French for “It’s Me”, pronounced say-muah) SPFs are available at select Target and CVS Stores, Target.com, Cestmoi.com and Amazon.com.
Another new entry under the sun is SPF 50 Daily UV Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen. It comes by way of a minority and female-owned skincare line VI Derm Beauty. What makes it efficacious is a high-quality SPF moisturizer that keeps skin safe from sun damage, hyperpigmentation, premature aging and fine lines.
By the way the specific formula is the brainstorm of the same creators of the first painless chemical peel (VI Peel). They developed a lightweight formula that dries weightlessly on the skin. It also leaves a matte dry finish. Ingredients include green tea which reverses pre-existing sun damage, and a blend of natural extracts like Pueraria Lobata root and chamomile to minimize inflammation.
As of today’s coronavirus guidelines, she will need to wear mask on the ship. So how about giving her her a glam selection. There is a great selection on Amazon such as this designer six piece Bling Face mask collection.
Does your mom tend to travel heavy? Get her a lightweight roller bag and teach her to pack less. Lots of choices at amazon.com.
Important docs wallet
We need to bring a lot of paper work with us on trips these days. Like IDs, COVID19 vaccination certificates and proof negative coronavirus test results. So help her out with a cool carrying case.
Gift card for a cruise wardrobe
On board spending money
You can buy her credits by way of cruise line gift cards. They are available for purchase on cruise line’s websites. This way she can decide for herself how to use the money. Choices include spa treatments, shore excursions, drinks, boutique purchases etc.
Flowers on board
While you’re on line with the cruise company you can also order flowers to be put in her stateroom. Every woman loves to a floral welcome.
Again Pavlus advisors are on hand to offer more advice and get Mom aboard the ship of her dreams.
