Best Travel Gifts for Kids
These are my favorite travel gifts for toddlers and young kids. I have given my kids (aged 2 and 4) most of these gifts, and the rest are on my shopping list for when they are older.

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 (in different colors) 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. This pair of headphones limits the volume to protect your child’s hearing. These CozyPhones are more comfortable and make it easier for your child to sleep while traveling.
My kids love carrying their backpacks around. Not only is Skip Hop Toddler backpacks cute but your kids can carry their carry on essentials themselves. They also have luggage with wheels that kids will love.
If you’re looking for a travel gift for a toddler, then consider getting them a Ride On Suitcase that they can ride through the airport instead of walking. The other benefit of a ride on suitcase is that they can sit on it when waiting in long lines whith no seats. If your kids like Paw Patrol love mine do they might like this one.
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 kids 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.
A travel subscription box for kids like Little Passports Monthly Subscription is a great gift for kids of different ages. Each month, you’ll receive a package filled with fun and educational toys, activities and souvenirs designed to spark your child’s curiosity and inspire them to learn about the world. There are different subscriptions available depending on your kids age: Early Explorers (Ages 3-5), World Edition (Ages 6-10), USA Edition (Ages 7-12), Science Expeditions (Age 9+).
(I just recently got the Early Explorers for my 4 year old son and he loved his first box. I plan to review it in a few months after he gets a few more boxes.)
9. Backpack The World
