Once again, I am scrambling to get last minute gifts. Often, I want my gifts to not only be thoughtful and fun but also practical and useful. This is especially true when shopping for my traveling kiddos. Here is a short list of suggestions for possible Holiday Gifts.
Little Passports. I think that I may have mentioned this one previously but I am still intrigued with Little Passports. This is a monthly subscription in which your little explorer can discover new places each month. There are various kits, divided into age appropriateness They include Early Explorers (Ages 3-5), World Edition (Ages 6-10), USA Edition (Ages 7-12), and Science Expeditions (Ages 9+). At the time I was writing this post, there were options to save $10 on a 6-month subscription or save $25 on a 12-month subscription.
A Globe. This may seem obvious, but maybe people don’t always think about giving the gift of a globe, especially to a child. That said, my kids love globes. And I love how much they learn when they are looking at one. There are super inexpensive mini globes here (they are under $7) or if you want to get a little fancier, check out this one.
A Suitcase. While talking about the obvious, how about this adorable hard shell suitcase? They are on sale (at the time of this writing), and I love the option for a monogram (I’m hesitant to put my children’s names on things but think the monogram is the perfect choice for personalization without strangers knowing my kids’ names).
Neck Rest Animals. Check out these adorable kids’ neck rests in various animal options. Under $10 and serving as a neck rest and stuffy, this seems like you would be getting your money’s worth.
Joke Books. For that downtime when traveling. Kids love to laugh and these books by Rob Elliot seem like they would provide some giggles. Registering in at just over $3, it may be worth a try.
Atlas of Adventures. This sweet and whimsical book from Anthropologie seems like it could only ignite one’s adventurous spirit. As the website describes… “Whether visiting the penguins of Antarctica, joining the Carnival in Brazil, or peering out at the Thames from the London Eye, this book brings together more than 100 activities and challenges to inspire explorations and travel daydreams.”
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World. This sounds like a delightful book as readers apparently go around the world with the characters to gather ingredients to make an apple pie. How cute is that?
Kids New Balance Crewcuts- Kids need comfortable shoes to wear when out sightseeing and parents need shoes that are easy for kids to slip on by themselves. There is a good chance that these may make their way under the tree for my son this holiday season. And check out these stylish sneakers for girls.
S’ip by S’well. Keep your little traveller’s to-go beverages hot or cold all day long in these bottles. An added bonus? They are available at Target and come in fun designs. You can check them out here.
An Underwater Camera. This camera looks like a very kid-friendly and fun option for hours of underwater exploration. It was cheaper at the time of this writing in the link above but this website also carries it.
