on tuesday my mom turned 50. last weekend we threw her a big surprise party. today she's in ireland. she's an adventurer at heart, always dreaming of her next big trip. i am so excited for her & all of the new experiences she'll have this upcoming week.
i wanted to create a little package of travel goodies for her to take along on her trip & remember the exciting moments from ireland. they're simple, affordable items that you might like to gift to your adventurer.
i picked up the basket for just under $1 at the thrift store. i filled it with tissue paper in peach from paper source. i gathered a handful of items i thought she might love. a reusable water bottle for carrying along on her trip & a travel journal with a pen for recording her experiences each day (i found this one at tj maxx, but this one is extra cute). i also added a zip-up pouch for storing those extra goodies in her luggage from shindig paperie & some gum for the plane. finally, i added a frame i got on clearance at target. instead of the tags that came with the frame, i made my own with kraft paper to personalize her gift.
you could also add mini toiletries, stamps for domestic traveling & luggage tags!
i placed it all in the basket, labeled the water bottle with a traveling tip & added some cute handmade tags from leftover card stock. she loved it.
what other gifts might you add to accompany a traveler on their upcoming adventure? please share!
