Traveling during the summer is something most families do, kids are out for school, the weather is warm and who doesn’t love a family road trip?! My mom and I are taking my kids on a road trip to visit some of our family in Ohio, originally we planned to go next month, but with our big move coming up we had to postpone until Fall. Even so, I decided to go ahead and make my mom a travel basket for Mother’s Day. These are great for short trips, long trips, or even to take down to the lake or the beach! And what better way to fill these baskets, then with the new Coca-Cola™ “Share a Coke and a Song” labeled bottles?!
I found the “Share a Coke and a Song” labeled Coca-Cola products at CVS, you can easily find them in the grocery refrigerated section (which is where I purchased mine), or usually CVS also has a small refrigerated section at the front of the store. I love that at CVS you can find all of your travel needs quickly and easily. Check out the Best Summer Ever Deals at your local CVS. Buy 2 20oz bottles of Coca-Cola products for $3!
For this basket, I grabbed two Coca-Cola bottles and two Diet Coke® bottles. For my mom, I filled the remainder of the basket with her favorite chocolates, gum, snacks and some wet wipes for her hands.
For our actual trip, I’ll make a similar basket and add a homemade CD filled with some of our favorite travel music as well! My mom and I both love to listen to music on our road trips. We may not always listen to the same kinds of music, but you better believe that no matter what we are listening to, you’ll find my mom dancing and singing while she’s driving! I can remember driving to and from Ohio on trips as a kid and my mom blaring AC/DC, Shania Twain, and Michael W. Smith…. could those be ANY more different? But that’s what she likes! If you’re a music lover like my mom and myself, be sure to download the Shazaam app (available on most devices, including Apple and Android devices) and download your Coca-Cola Share a Song.
Some other ideas for your travel baskets for mom could be:
- Gift Cards for restaurants – you have to eat a good meal at some point!
- Gas Cards – especially with the up and down prices of gas, a little extra gas money can go a long way!
- GPS – If your mom is anything like my mom, she is NOT good with directions, a GPS would definitely help.
- Meds – This could include anti-nausea, motion-sickness, pain relievers, etc. Road trips are fun, but sometimes you find yourself with a headache or getting nauseous on curvy roads. This is a MUST in my opinion!
- Satellite Radio Subscription – this is a great gift for any music lover.
What other items would you include in your travel basket for Mom? And don’t forget to Share a Coke and a Song with your mom!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, be sure to let them know how much you love them! They are doing the HARDEST job!
