Travel-themed wish list for kids

Travel-themed gifts for kids
Spread the love

Kids these days seem to have the world at the fingertips and I have so much fun finding travel-themed gifts for little travelers.  When my guys were smaller they loved a lot of the books on this list and I have compiled other travel-themed gifts in this post too!  I’ve also written a travel-themed books list for Trekaroo that includes some of our favorites and some from my flat-lay.  Looking back at our earlier family traveling days it’s neat to see what we used to love and what we use now.

Trunkis at the airport with twin 3-year olds

I totally remember how we loved our trunkies.  They were so perfect for travel when the kids were around 2 and a half to 4 years old and I just noticed you can now “DESIGN your own Trunki on their website. We used to use them as carry-ons for the kids’ huggies and other entertainment necessities when we went on airplane trips and they were also great suitcases for road-trips up to Canada to see our grandparents too.  The kids love sitting and riding around on them at airports and hotels.

We have a set of Melissa and Doug jellyfish toys that have accompanied us to so many pools around the world.  I think we’ve had them for nearly 6 years!

This is an awesome world puzzle for younger kids.  And this puzzle is one my guys still like to do now.  I also like that this America puzzle combines sports with travel too.

I am totally enamoured with a company called Seedling because their products are so creative.  This company also has incredible travel-themed products.  Their color-me Earth could not be more perfect because it sparks a lot of conversation about where in the world places are and it’s nice and soft and fun for a playroom.  I think we’re going to use ours to record and color the places we’ve been in the world.  I can’t wait to see how much we can fill it up over time.  I’ve seen Seedling products sold in many places; most recently in a gift shop at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver BC.  A reasonable place to buy these products is also at Joann crafts online and I like their collaborations with Target too!

Seedling also has a bunch of small travel-themed stocking stuffer products in their own online shop.  The Earth Ball, the vintage kaleidescope camera, gliderreal binoculars and mini chess game are all perfect for little adventurers.  The design-your-own glowing light globe makes a fun night-light that could be made into a world map theme too!

I was recently introduced to a customizabe clothing company in Seattle and I love how this Ace Playfield pilot tshirt can be printed with all the places your little traveler has been.

The Tile I pictured in my flat lay is a must for parents who travel with kids.  I am always losing my keys or my phone and I use my Tile App at least once a week to find them.  I either press the button on my Tile to find my phone or I use the App on my phone to find the Tile attached to my keys.  This tool has saved us so much grief!

And I totally want this giant coloring wall map which I would definitely share with the kids.

I know Christmas is coming ASAP, so I will keep looking for more ideas and add them here when I see them.  I do have a Seattle-themed gifts guide and another list with some fun wrapping ideas here too!

(PS I have received some samples for review, but the opinions in this blog are my own. I take my shopping seriously!)

  1. I love these little travel gift ideas — I loved puzzles as a child and that world map would have been perfect. I’ll have to keep these in mind as I’m shopping for the little ones in my life!
