This is one of my favorite ways to add extra excitement and joy when traveling. This journal makes the perfect gifts for kids who can read and write. There are sections for what to before travel like packing lists and daily pages that are a nice combo of prompts and open space for drawing or writing. There are puzzle pages and blank pages for extra entertainment.

This journal is perfect for a road trip or a long flight or even just to take a few minutes at the end of the day for them to record their memories!

Travel Gifts for Kids Camera

Buying your travel loving child a kid friendly camera will make you their favorite person. I think there is something about kids’ being able to use a camera that makes them feel very grown up.

They can use their own creativity and remember their experiences while traveling through their own lens, literally.

For younger kids, this camera is amazing and older kids, they might prefer a polaroid camera for instant memories!

(Available in multiple colors)

Headphones are a practical and useful gift that they can use while traveling and other times at well.

These are great for airplanes and road trips. They can use them to watch tv or movies, listen to audiobooks, or play on a tablet.

We really like the Amazon Fire Kids Tablet because you can set reading and learning goals they have to meet before pure entertainment is able to be accessed.

Travel pillow makes for a great gift but is also on the practical side. It is a gift that will get plenty of use both on airplanes as well as the car.

For dragon lovers grab this super comfortable one. If you have more of a cat lover, this Pusheen travel pillow is high quality and comfortable.

Bonus, my kids love taking their travel pillows to school when they have read-a-thons or other parties that allow them.

Games and Activities

Anyone who has traveled with kids knows you need something to entertain them while you are traveling to and from your destination.

This portable travel tray changed everything for me. It is a MUST have for road trips but it can also be used on airplanes as well. It has a drink holder, and little pockets to hold snacks, art supplies or toys.

Sticker books, Wiki Sticks, Wacky Faces and, this game have all been big hits while traveling with kids. Small toys, playdough, coloring books also make good items to keep them entertained.

Something deemed universally cool by all kids, the good old walkie talkie will always make a great gift.

Books are a good bet for a gift to inspire your little travel lover. The Atlas Obscura is wonderful illustrated books full of hard to believe but true places around the world.

A great starter Atlas is the National Geographic World Atlas. This Travel Book has pages on every single country in the world, kids who love travel can learn about them all! For smaller kids the National Geographic Little Kids First Big Book of the World is perfect.
