Learn when your most recent ancestors from each population lived. Opt in to find DNA relatives and automatically build your family tree.

3. Noise Canceling Earphones
From one traveler extraordinaire to another, I am recommending two noise canceling earphone options.
The AirPods Pro earbuds pair seamlessly with an iPhone if you use Apple products.
These earphones also have the benefit of being small and lightweight. A perfect gift for Mother’s Day or any day of celebration. Don’t forget the AirPods Pro Silicone Carrying Case [affiliates].
And if you are like me and have curly hair, having Airpods offers less chance of the cord getting tangled in your curls! The struggle is real!
The second noise canceling headphone option is the Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Canceling Headphones. The benefit to these is that they are corded and offer less chances of falling out of your ears and getting lost as you sleeps on an airplane.
Also, Mom can plug into the plane’s onboard entertainment system to watch movies or listen to music.
4. “Lightweight” Luggage
Lightweight Samsonite Luggage [affiliate] is always a great option for travel especially if you are having to lift the luggage overhead to store in airplane storage bins, carry it onto trains, or heft it up flights of stairs when the Airbnb you have chosen has no elevator.
5. The North Face Recon Backpack
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Backpack designed specifically for adventure seeking women. I use it as my personal travel bag or handbag. It has a variety of features that work great for me:
- a padded laptop or iPad section
- a large middle section for my camera insert
- lots of pockets
- expandable side pockets for a water bottle, easily accessible hand sanitizer (a must have for travel), and Blistex
- a mesh front pocket
- a sternum strap
- a waist belt
6. Travelon Travel Bag
If you would enjoy something a little more classy and stylish yet functional as a travel bag, try the Travelon Crossbody Bag. It features a zippered RFID pocket, cut-resistant handles, and numerous pockets and abundant space.

7. PCA Sunscreen
For all adventure seeking women (and men) whether you are traveling or at home, I recommend the PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 sunscreen with zinc oxide.
This sunscreen is sweat and water resistant and is an everyday essential in my morning routine. I’ve got my whole family, my husband included, hooked on this stuff. And it works brilliantly to protect your beautiful face!
8. Canon 6d Mark II Camera
Because I am a adventurer who is also all about taking pictures when I travel, my Canon 6d Mark II camera, lenses and accessories are essential to bring along when I travel. Seriously, I don’t leave home without them!
I know everyone has a different opinion about which camera is the best. Pick the brand you (or Mom if you are gifting one to her) love the most.
I would also recommend that you check out my photography mentor, Audrey Ann at Live Snap Love if you want to UP your photography game. She shares a few tips on how to upload and organize your photos if you are at a loss or new to travel photography.
She offers some FREE cheat sheets and some pretty great courses too!
- Free Manual Mode Cheat Sheet
- Free Lightroom Starter Kit
- Free Aperture Cheat Sheet
- Free 90-Day Starter Kit
- Launch into Lightroom Course
- Auto to Awesome Course
And look at crazy me! My camera in one hand and my Cell Phone in the other poised to take pictures. I have to jump in some pictures just so people know I was on vacation too!
6. Travel Mug
This mug is perfect for reminding you that you need to plan your next trip or bring it along on your next road trip.
7. Satin Pillowcase
Travel with a little bit of the luxury of home. A pillowcase that doesn’t take up too much space in your luggage either.
8. Infinity Scarf with a Hidden Pocket
Safety is on all of our minds lately. Be diligent as you travel with this beautiful scarf with a hidden pocket. The pocket is the perfect size for tucking in a credit card, passport, small wallet, or valuables.
9. Travelon Passport Wallet RFID
The Travelon Passport Wallet with RFID is perfect for securely storing a passport, credit cards, and a little extra cash. If you are the keeper of the family passports as you travel, this case can hold 3-4 passports quite nicely.
10. Portable Charger
Does you use a cell phone throughout the day on vacation (or even in the carpool lane) for taking photos, getting directions, checking maps, figuring out transportation, or researching on the internet? I suggest you pack a Portable Charger so that you can recharge your phone when needed. It is probably in my top 5 of essential gadgets for travel.
If you or your Mom are using your phone for all of those activities when you travel, you will most likely use up your phone battery before the end of the day.
And… remember to pack ALL of the necessary charging cables.
11. Built Bar
If you like to pack snacks when you travel, consider Built Bar protein bars in your favorite flavor. I LOVE chocolate. My husband likes anything with caramel. They also have Puffs and newly released granola bars too!
Bonus * Use Code SJTRAVELS at checkout for 10% off your Built.com purchase.
12. Amazon Gift Card
What could be better than an Amazon Gift Card for you, Mom, or the adventure seeking women in your life? Choose exactly what you need for travel or photography. The gift-giver gets the kudos.
If you (or your mom) don’t already have Amazon Prime, try it out. The perks include FREE two-day shipping, being able to instantly stream movies and TV shows, access to books and music and online shopping lists, and more.

I love Amazon Prime. Check out some of My Favorite Travel Things 👈 here
An iPad or tablet is definitely a travel must-have for me as I travel.
An iPad is great for:
- Storing all information related to our vacation—dates, locations, activities, booked flights, hotel, and transportation
- Reviewing in the evening for the next day
- Unwinding or relaxing while reading an eBook
- “Facetiming” with family at home
- Watching a downloaded movie. Check out the options from Amazon Prime Movies [affiliate].
- Journaling throughout vacation
- Blogging on the long flight home
In order for me to remember all of the events of each day as I travel, I use a Travel Journal to record dates, locations, restaurants, adventures, mishaps, and funny moments.
Consider gifting the adventure seeking women in your life a hardcover Travel Planner to record all of the details of their adventures in the planning stages. If you ARE the adventure seeking woman, add it to your Amazon wish list.
Are you a journal keeper already? You will love this daily Gratitude Journal or Reflections Journal.
15. Apple Watch
There is even a pedometer app you can download to track your steps (or mileage) as you sightsee on vacation.
Don’t forget to toss in the Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Cable as well to make sure the watch is charged everyday and ready to go when you are.
16. Hanging Toiletry Bag
This BagSmart Hanging Toiletry Bag is convenient and organizes essential toiletries. ‘Cause, let’s face it, you and I travel with beauty essentials too!
17. Travel Necklace
Who doesn’t love a little bit of bling? Travel Necklace anyone?
Or how about this Sterling Silver Digital Camera Pendant, a token of just how much the adventure seeking women in your life mean to you.?
18. Luggage Tags
Who wants to spend time looking for their Luggage at Baggage Claim? Help your luggage stand out from the crowd with these durable yet trendy Metal Luggage Tags [affiliate].
Won’t you and the women in your life look stylin’ in a beautiful pair of Sunglasses? With the added benefit of eye protection. Fashion and function all in one!
My optometrist brothers would both recommend that you don’t leave home without sunglasses. They are essential!
