You can never be too young to have the travel bug. Give the gift they will love this holiday season with these wonderful ideas! Most of what we curated here are geared towards being fun, educational, and for long term use. We have gift ideas for ages 3 and up, so check out our round-up for the little globetrotters in your life. You’ll never find a better gift to please both parents and kids!
Nurture the Travel Bug
Those little globetrotters are very curious and they also retain information very well. Good news, this award-winning subscription from the Little Passports might just be what your kid will love. It has available packages from ages 3 and up. The idea is, you receive a monthly box with goodies relating to your chosen theme, which could be about travel or the sciences.
The kid will definitely love waiting for that mail just for him or her!
If you order soon, you can also use this code: JOLLY to get 15% OFF your purchase. Promo is valid until December 06, 2018.
Activity Bag / Organizer
Whether you are flying or driving, a great activity bag and organizer for your kids can leave them occupied especially during long trips. An activity bag will be able to hold their snacks, crayons, coloring books, and iPad, among other things. We were fortunate enough to have been sent a sample of one to try just before our Walt Disney World trip. It qualified as my son’s personal item and it made the flight to Orlando much bearable for both him and I. My son loves it and we take it everywhere we go like road trips!
Sleepover Just Got Better
Pajama parties, weekends at the grandparents or the cousins, or glamping at your favorite hotel, the guys at Buddy Bagz just made sleeping bags more fun for the kids. It’s everything that your little camper needs — sleeping bag, a stuffed toy, pillow, overnight bag, toiletry bag, night light — rolled (see what I did there?) into one!
With eight (8) designs to choose from, Buddy Bagz also advocates for children who are battling cancer. For every 25 Buddy Bagz purchased, they will donate one to a child receiving therapy.
For ideas on toys to bring during traveling, Flying With A Baby shares their ultimate list here.
Tablet and Accessories
If you have an old iPad or tablet that you no longer use, you can load it with kid-friendly apps or movies. Then, protect it with kid-proof cases. Otherwise, Amazon has a kid friendly tablet that is also cheaper compared to its Apple counterpart.
Most of this are shockproof and can withstand the heavy wear that comes from…you know, kids.
Luggage or backpack
They love having their own luggage or backpacks to store their favorite toys, snacks and some change of clothes–even if Mom and Dad end up carrying them. Make them love it even more by giving bags that feature their favorite character.
Another great set of gifts for little travelers are books. Inspire them to explore the world with stories that speak about adventures. Books are for forever.
Plot their adventures
This can actually be enjoyed by the parents as well which makes it a great family gift for those who often travel. A scratch-off map is better than your scratch lottery ticket. You actually win here!
Have you seen a 2-year old use a smart phone? Yes, they all look like they are born with it. I believe that it’s never too early to get them into photography. You don’t need to spend $1000+ to get them into it. There are available starter kits for kids that will surely develop that eye for photos.
All of the following suggested cameras are shockproof, dust proof and waterproof. Enjoy!
Buy Them Passes to Experiences
Make memories with them by buying tickets to museums or parks. A great way to save on a couple of admission tickets is through CityPass. They cover twelve major cities such as Chicago, San Francisco or Southern California. The best attractions have been curated for you so you can have more time just going to them. Better yet, VIP admissions and discounts!
