Travel Tips

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.

For Adults

Adult children appreciate travel gifts too, and with so many easy, portable and personal gift ideas, it’s easy to do. For the outdoorsy traveler, gift them the Kammock Wallaby Hammock. This lightweight, portable and easily assembled hammock is the ideal companion for travelers who camp and hike. A single hammock begins at $94 and comes with a lifetime warranty.

For something a bit more personalized for the polished traveler, design a custom leather travel piece. This Ready2Go Leather Organizer keeps your charger, headphones, phone and other devices neatly packed and untangled with a thoughtful monogram detail. Leather pieces range from $25–50 depending on size and style.

The 51 students in the graduating class were majority, at 80 percent, women and people of color — another stride toward United’s goal of training 5,000 new pilots by 2030 with half women or POC.

Take a Ski Getaway to British Columbia

The western Canadian province of British Columbia is known for its skiing and winter sports, with Whistler Blackcomb often named one of North America’s top ski destinations. But British Columbia has more places to ski and play in the snow, family-friendly resorts with budget-friendly prices, and up to 400 inches of powder snow. An exchange rate of 75 cents to the dollar is an added incentive for American family travelers to travel north for a vacation.
