1. Embassy Suites by Hilton Two-Night Stay

If you’re a regular Travel Mamas reader, you probably know that I adore this family-friendly brand. These all-suites hotels feature two-room suites with separate sleep spaces for parents and children to help everyone in the family get a better night’s rest. Their signature atriums provide a respite from a hectic day and often include water features, sometimes with koi ponds. The included made-to-order breakfasts makes feeding hungry kids in the morning a snap. All Embassy Suites by Hiltons provide complimentary evening receptions with snacks and drinks for all ages (including alcoholic options for mom and dad). Most locations offer pools for splashing and swimming, too!

2. myCharge HubPlus Portable Charger

Charge up to two devices while on the go and plug back in at the hotel room or your house with the myCharge HubPlus Portable Charger. Weighing in at just half a pound, this is the smallest and lightest powerbank out there. It’s wicked fast, too. It’ll charge your smart phone and tablet up to 65 percent faster than competitors. When outlets are at a premium in hotel rooms or aboard cruise ships the HubPlus Portable Charger’s built-in wall prongs make it easy to charge without cluttering up your briefcase, purse or suitcase with power cords. It comes with one Apple-compatible cable and one micro-USB cable. myCharge HubPlus Portable Charger

4. Honeywell Bluetooth Air Purifier

As the mom of an asthmatic kid and wife to a man who loves new technology, I was super excited to welcome the Honeywell Bluetooth Smart True HEPA Allergen Remover into my home. It’s the first air purifier that uses Bluetooth technology to track local pollen counts via a free mobile app, then auto-adjusts cleaning levels according to allergen levels in a specific zip code. The True HEPA filter effectively captures up to 99.97 percent of microscopic allergens, and it reduces odors and germs. Use this air filter to remove such irritants as dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, mold spores and more from the air your family breathes. This product is perfect for anyone who suffers from allergies or who wants a clean-smelling, healthy home.

Encircled specializes in making comfortable, fashionable travel clothing. But their styles work just as well at home as they do while away. Their Chrysalis Cardi is a fabulous garment for any jet setter who loves to travel light without sacrificing style. Made from super-soft, eco-conscious Modal fabric, this 8-way-to-wear design easily converts from a cardigan, to a scarf, dress, top and more.

7. Strong Is the New Skinny + Weight Watchers: Ultimate Belly Kit

I love fitness guru Jennifer Cohen’s focus on good health over waif-like results. Jennifer was the trainer on The CW’s Shedding for the Wedding, and appears regularly on NBC’s Today show. She is also a columnist on and I met Jennifer when traveling through Israel with a bunch of journalists last fall. While the rest of us were getting a tour of Masada, Jennifer was running up all 400-feet of the monument’s Snake Path trail. While I went souvenir shopping in a small Israeli town, Jennifer did burpees and other exercises for an impromptu video for her followers.

As part of the Travel Mamas At Home Launch BIG Giveaway, you could win two of Jennifer’s fitness products. Written with coauthor Stacey Colino, her bestselling book, Strong Is the New Skinny, will help you say goodbye to body-bashing and physical faultfinding, and instead learn to embrace, not just how it looks, but what your body can do. The Weight Watcher: Ultimate Belly Kit includes a workout DVD, a mini stability ball and pump, a 10-week exercise tracker, and 10 tasty appetizer recipes.

8. T Spheres Aromatherapy-Infused Massage Balls

T Spheres massage away sore muscles caused from lugging your suitcase while traveling or from slumping in your office chair while home. Choose from four scents: Pep Up Mint (peppermint), Perk Up (mint plus grapefruit), Inner Beauty (rose geranium), or my favorite, Peace & Quiet (infused with lavender, known for its ability to alleviate headaches, anxiety, nervous tension and emotional stress). Each T Spheres order comes with two T Spheres, a 3 milliliter infuser, and an instructional brochure in a portable jute drawstring bag.

Traveling moms can unwind and relax on the road and at home with T Spheres aromatherapy-infused massage balls

9. The Travel Mamas’ Guide just celebrated its seventh anniversary, but it all started with the idea for a book: The Travel Mamas’ Guide. When my agent told me I should start a blog to build a platform for my book, my response was something like, “What’s a blog?” When I finally published The Travel Mamas’ Guide years later, the guide was awarded a San Diego Book Award for best travel book. It is recommended by Working Mother Magazine, the Orlando Sentinel, the Calgary Herald and numerous other publications. You could win The Travel Mamas’ Guide as part of this giveaway, or use promo code BTHLS7GH to receive a 25 percent discount when you buy your guide here today!
