I love buying my kids gifts that they will love but that they can also use when they travel. These are some of my favorite family travel essentials that make great gifts for toddlers and younger kids.
An Amazon Fire Kids Edition Tablet keeps my kids entertained on long flights and road trips. There are age filters so that kiddos will only see age appropriate content and also comes in a kid-proof case so you don’t have to worry about it being dropped or damaged.
Headphones are a must when traveling with kids so that they can watch their shows and play games on their tablet without bothering anyone else. These headphones limit the volume to protect your child’s hearing.
My son loves carrying his backpack around. Not only is this backpack cute but your kids can carry their carry on essentials themselves.
This is a great way for kids to create memories of their trip. There are journals for different ages, this travel journal is great for younger kids (ages 3-6).
My son loves using my phone, camera or any tech gadget really. This waterproof camera will keep your kid occupied during your trips and keep him from using (and breaking) your expensive camera. Another good option is this camera with video recorder.
