Travel-Related Mother’s Day Gifts
Aesop Arrival Travel Kit
This Australian-born skincare brand is a favourite among Aussies, and your Mum will be spoilt with the Aesop Arrival Travel Kit!

Aesop also sells a Departure Travel Kit which contains items perfect for keeping skin hydrated and the Mum feeling fresh when she’s on the road. Best of all, Aesop is vegan and cruelty-free!
For the Mum on the go at home and away who loves to read (or wishes she had time to!), an Audible subscription may be the perfect gift!
With an Audible membership, she can listen to her favorite books while traveling and won’t be weighed down by hardbacks. Once she’s done with her book, she can quickly start on another.

Glasshouse Fragrance Products
If you follow my Instagram, it’s no secret that I am a massive lover of Glasshouse Fragrances products.

Highly recommend One Night in Rio (Passionfruit and lime with a touch of Melon) and Kyoto in Bloom (think cherry blossoms and airy lotus flowers).
