The ultimate travel shoe, Tieks are ideal for anyone – but a mom on the go is especially going to love the unparalleled comfort of these ballet flats. Made from soft leather, these shoes come in a wide variety of colours and will go with almost everything in her wardrobe. If Mom is traveling, Tieks will become her constant companion, not just because of their comfort but because they fold in half, taking up barely any room in her suitcase.
3 Leather Bag Tassel, Gigi New York, $35
This gift is sweet and simple! Help Mom dress up her bag with a leather tassel. Featuring gold hardware and cross-stitch detail, this handcrafted accessory will make her bag feel special. For an extra special touch, add Mom’s initial, stamped in gold.

This is a bag that has thought of everything for you … so you don’t have to. With pockets and sleeves and compartments for absolutely anything you could possibly need, this bag is a travelers dream. You’ll never again hold up the security line trying to find your passport or iPad and once on the plane, you’ll easily be able to locate your earphones without emptying your entire bag. Add to that its chic and sophisticated design, complete with stunning rose gold hardware, and this is the bag of a traveler’s dreams.
5 Amazon Echo, Amazon, $179.99
There’s no question that Mom will get a huge kick out of having an Amazon Echo in her home. And she needn’t fear the technology – it couldn’t be any simpler to use! Simply speak to the Echo (it will even hear her from across the room) and it will play music, answer questions, read audiobooks, report on news, traffic and weather and even control her lights and thermostat. This gift is a definite winner!
6 DryBar Detox Dry Shampoo, Sephora, $29
Dry shampoo is a busy woman’s best friend. On days when Mom doesn’t have time for a wash and blow dry, dry shampoo can really save the day. This Detox Dry Shampoo from DryBar absorbs oils and odour from hair, leaving hair feeling fresh and ready for the day. Best of all, it’ll blend in with her hair colour and won’t leave a white residue behind.
7 Toms Luisa Retro Sunglasses, Nordstrom, $139
Treat mom to a new pair of shades! This pair might be a bit more modern than what she’s currently sporting but have a retro flair that she’s sure to appreciate. Offering 100% UV protection, mom can feel and look great wearing these. Plus, with every pair that is purchased, Toms will help to give sight to a person in need as part of their One for One program.
8 Apple Watch, Apple, $399
The Apple Watch is more than just a good-looking accessory – although it’s that, too! The sleek design makes it a definite statement piece. But besides its obvious style appeal, the Apple Watch offers a ton of features that make it indispensable. With one on her wrist, Mom will be able to check her flight status, access her boarding pass, track her fitness levels, stay connected with the greatest of ease, get directions … and so much more! But best of all, with her new wearable tech, she’ll feel like one of the cool kids!

It has a detachable compartment for smaller items and can be laid flat or hung from a hook. In gold, this travel kit is a chic accessory Mom won’t want to leave home without.
10 Eye Mask, Otis Batterbee, $60
An eye mask is perfect for long flights and hotel room stays but is also just as useful at home. But finding the right eye mask isn’t always easy. Mom needs one that’s soft, comfortable and fits just right, which makes this one worth the investment. It has a soft velvet cotton backing and an elastic strap to make it fit as securely and comfortably as possible. Plus, it has a bit of lavender on the inside to help soothe, calm and relax. This eye mask arrives in a beautiful gift box, making it ready for gift-giving.
