Travel treats for mom

Mom will love these globetrotting goodies.

With Mother’s Day set for May 9 and travel beginning to open up, mom will love these globetrotting goodies:

Vested interest — This travel-friendly, double-breasted vest from M. M. LaFleur elevates your favorite T-shirt. Fabric-covered buttons create a sleek look, while pockets offer a place to stash your business cards and easy tailoring makes it summer-friendly. $195.

Animal Planet — Travel memories are the gift that keep on giving, so why not book a spectacular safari for Mom? Black Panther Safaris Inc. (with an office in Greenwich) caters to a niche clientele that seeks luxurious and meaningful travel. The company provides transformational safaris to Tanzania, the only home of the Serengeti, Mt. Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar. Black Panther will curate safaris for private clients in the metro area and create a simple way for you to book your bucket list. Trips range from seven to 16 days and cover journeys perfect for teens, couples, families, milestone celebrants and cultural enthusiasts. Eight days start at $7,689 per person.

Beauty Sleep At 25,000 Feet — Coco & Eve makes beautiful satin pillowcases that assure that your hair wakes up frizz-free, while the company’s eyeshades will have mom dreaming of faraway destinations. (I’m yawning already.)  Beauty Sleep Bundle – $35.80.

Jeepers Creepers, mom will be crazy about Peepers, a fourth-generation, family-run company that makes chic, upbeat eyewear and is a favorite of Oprah Winfrey’s. Peeper’s products are available as prescription readers, blue light and sunglasses to stash in your suitcase, so you can look great everywhere from Cancun to Cairo. $25.

Gorgeous From Ghana — The NETT exfoliator cloth is Ghana’s best-kept beauty secret and has been an essential part of bathing culture for decades. The fine-net texture is perfect for maintaining smooth, beautifully soft skin and the length and shape is great for getting to those hard-to-reach places. All NETTs are sourced from Ghana, directly from the market stalls (not wholesalers) which pays a fair price to support these stall holders. $35 each.

La Dolce Vita — What’s the next best thing to being in Rome? Eating like a Roman. Mom can  enjoy authentic food experiences at home with the Eatales Italian Subscription Box, where cheese, grappa, truffles and the sky is the limit. Each box is packed with Italian delicacies and accompanied by a live virtual tour that features locally produced Italian food, wine and treats, delivered anywhere in the world. With the Liquirizia: Amarelli Museum Live Virtual Tour, for example, you will “visit,” through live streaming, the Giorgio Amarelli Museum and Factory Store and see one of the most important made-in-Italy products — Amarelli licorice. Its history dates back to 1731. Your box comes with five products based on licorice ingredients, including anisette and lemon sweets.  $70.

Bold New Brows — If Mom wasn’t blessed with big bold brows, it’s Factor Five Eye and Lash Cream to the rescue. This do-it-all eye cream helps reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging with human derived stem-cell growth factors while Biotin and Redensyl help stimulate brow and eyelash growth.  Stash it in your Samsonite for beauty-on-the-go. $149. 

Say Cheese – Mpix offers professional quality prints and personalized photo items that showcase travel memories in a unique way. The Mpix photo lab is what sets it apart, with its photo blankets, mugs, calendars and magnets being just a few fan favorites. The “statuettes” are completely adorable and a fabulous way to “freeze-frame” a special moment of any trip.  Statuettes start at $19.99. Use code WAG2521 to receive a 25% discount through May 15.
