Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to splurge on your mom, or any loved one who is a mom, and give her something extra special!

❤️❤️There is still time to order for Mother's Day. Remember, all proceeds from our links are donated to charity. Please SHARE this post to help...❤️❤️

Let's face it - she may not have the time or knowledge to look for great traveling items herself.  Fortunately, LTD can give you some outstanding selections for all budgets that will certainly put a smile on her face!!  Our guide includes items that are fashionable, healthy, useful and practical for the traveling female.  Click on the product photo if you wish to learn more!

1.  One of Our Favorite Travel Pants are Coolibar Women's Quick Dry Wide Leg Pants with Drawstring  

She can step into the most wonderfully comfortable and luxurious silky sun pants you'll ever find. 

These convertible sun pants feature hidden side seam pockets with a side seam vents for breathability and a mid-calf tie for a harem pant look when you want to up your style. Easy to care for machine wash fabric with UPF 50+ sun protection. They can be worn everyday too, providing a balance of outdoor activities and casual life when she needs versatility.

2. The MIZOO 140db Emergency Personal Alarm Keychain is perfect for Self Defense.  

While some may use their car key alarm as a safety when walking to your car, what do you do when you're traveling or away from your car?  This compact alarm has a flashlight and a loud Alarm.  Test it outside because it is LOUD.  

3. Wallaroo Wide Brim Fedora - Made in Australia

With all 5 star reviews, this positively fun hat is packable and good looking. There are three colors available and has a UPF rating of 50+.  

4. For the Sofa, Car or Plane Snuggler!

If she loves to curl up with a good blanket, let her relax more with cozy feet. An ordinary throw blanket usually just doesn't do to keep her toes warm, and that's why PediPocket developed their patented throw blanket with a pocket for feet!  She'll say, "Why didn't I think of that?"

We are proud to recommend two books this year, each from REMARKABLE mothers! Please be sure to check out numbers 5 and 6!

5. The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You by Simone Steinbach Knego 

"Follow Your Own Path. Discover Your Own Journey." These inspirational words couldn't ring truer in life and Simone is a perfect example. She realized that what you do every day matters and inspires others. By sharing her story, she motivates and encourages all of us—and in doing so, maybe change the world.  As a wife, mother to six children (and three dogs - since publication FOUR dogs), and a serial entrepreneur, she splits her time between her family, businesses, and personal growth.  Simone takes you inside her unique journey and the extraordinary moments which have shaped her life and defined her mission. Sharing the lessons she’s learned from life’s ups, downs, and laugh-out-loud moments, you’ll be inspired to discover your own journey, and to go out into the world and be the good. The world is waiting for the Extraordinary UnOrdinary You, and you already have everything you need to get started, simply by being you.

6.  Everything But the Toast: Anti-Inflammatory Recipes by Haley Broyhill

After studying Holistic Nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the cutting-edge leader in holistic nutrition education, Haley created this Anti-Inflammatory recipe book that is designed to benefit anyone, but especially those with risk of auto-immune diseases, hormonal imbalances, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and more.  She has learned that Inflammation can be very sneaky in our lives, and it has been inappropriately vilified. She created her book to educate people about what role inflammation can commonly play in our bodies. It explains what the most common symptoms are, why they happen, and how to heal through dietary holistic and lifestyle choices. Readers will discover the deleterious roles that gluten & other inflammatory foods play in our bodies, and how our environment can make a drastic impact in our overall health. Haley says, "I grew up in a small town where living holistically was not common. The incentive for writing my book came from my love for my family and hometown. My hope is to help the people that suffer from limited resources learn how wholesome choices can change their lives."

7.  MORE MEANINGFUL THAN A CARD! I Love You Mom: And Here's Why

After all she's done, your mom deserves an entire book spelling out all of the ways she shown her love to you over the years.

8.  Steam Compact Travel Steamer

9.  Essential Oils for Travel, Travel Diffuser and Aromatherapy Bracelet

Essential oils can have a healing effect mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Why not give your favorite Mom a variety of oils to take with her to help her well being?  Not only can you give her the gift of relaxation, but we love this rechargeable, wireless travel diffuser that doesn't require water!  It can be used in her car, hotel room, office or wherever she needs to rejuvenate.  Or if that is too bulky give her an essential oil diffuser bracelet. With this "tree of life" bracelet, she can stay cool, calm, and collected while she's running from one place to the next. When she needs a relaxing fix, she can apply two to three drops of her favorite essential oil, secure the bracelet to wrist, and reap the benefits.

10. Uno de 50 Multidirectional Silver and Swarovski Crystal Earrings

12. "Bring Me Some Wine" Socks

13. Original Zen Artist Board in Gold 

This mobile artsy gift will quickly become the family's favorite! The mini is only 5" X 5" and will fit in her purse to allow her to use it anywhere.

The very act of creating temporary art will soothe & calm your nerves.  The best thing? It's mess-free and only requires some water to make the most of these temporary paintings.  We find the slowly fading painting allows us to meditate even more.
