Sleep Mask

Why not give mum the gift of a good sleep whilst travelling. Everyone knows that sleeping on a plane can be near impossible and sometimes sleeping in a hotel bed can be just as difficult but with a sleep mask the ability to get some shut eye is so much easier. This light blocking sleep mask from Mavogel comes with an adjustable strap and arbitrary bending cartilage for the perfect individualised fit. Available for £6.59 from amazon.

Wassen Beauty Collagen

If your mum likes to take supplements, especially collagen, then these Wassen Beauty+Collagen water mineralisers are perfect. Each one comes individually packed in an easy to use sachet perfect for taking with her on her travels. They taste great with a raspberry and lemon flavour and help improve the appearance of skin, hair and nails. You can even team them with a Wassen water bottle to enhance your gift if you like. These are available for £17.99 for a pack of 14.

A Taste of Holiday

A great gift idea is to treat mum to some of her favourite holiday foods, for me that would be olive oils.

Headphones are a great gift idea for the mum that travels solo.
