Gift Ideas for Traveling Kids

For Young Children

Cloud B’s sound machine soother is perfect for young children on the move. Gift your little traveler with this plush toy to cuddle in the airport, on the plane or in the car as your family hustles from place to place. Choose from the Gentle Giraffe or Sleep Sheep to snuggle and softly lull your child to sleep using volume-controlled sound-soothing technology. The stuffed animal is $25, requires batteries and easily compactable into your carry-on or diaper bag while being a secret weapon for traveling with young children.

For Kids

Involve your kids in the packing and heavy lifting of your next trip with an efficient travel backpack like the Dueter Kikki. This backpack is a fun way for kids to carry their own belongings on a hike or at the airport.

Pack the spacious main compartment with clothes, toys and child-sized necessities on your next trip. The two external hoop-and-loop pockets allow for attachments such as a hat or water bottle. Keep snacks in the outside pockets for easy access and clean-up in case of spills. The Kikki comes in pink, blue or green and resembles a penguin on your kid’s back. The backpack is $45 and made with durable, eco-friendly materials.

For Teens

Get your teenagers interested in travel, cartography and geography with a personalized wall hanging from Scratch Map. Scratch Maps range in color, size, style and geographic location, so there is easily something to pique any teen traveler’s interest. Whether an avid traveler or aspiring adventurer, scratching off visited locations is a fun way for teens to dream big while decorating their room.
