In this gift guide we share all our recommended family travel gift ideas. You’ll find travel gift ideas for moms who love to travel, for dads who love to travel and of course, gift ideas for kids who love to travel.
These are all useful travel gift ideas that any traveling family will want to make room for in their luggage.
Definitely one of the more unique family travel gifts in this list, but still a perfect travel themed gift. Minimize waste by packing these reusable stainless steel straws that also come with a cleaning brush.
Our family loves to travel AND our kids love building Lego sets. The series of travel themed Lego sets is a perfect marriage of the things our family loves most. Whether it's the Eiffel Tower, the Taj Mahal or a simple 3D postcard of New York City, there's a travel themed Lego set that's perfect for your family.
Keep what you pack to a minimum with these wireless earbuds. Once you have your kids settled with their entertainment, you'll be able to sit back and watch your own movie. They are also good for watching a movie quietly when sharing a hotel room!
If you travel with a lot of electronics (like we do), then you know you're always looking for more outlets to get everything charged each night. This travel power strip is a very thoughtful travel gift idea!
Whether you are taking a trip to Grandma's house or sharing a hotel room, a portable inflatable mattress is easy to carry. We have a toddler sized one and use it often, whether it's to give the kids extra space or if our Airbnb doesn't have enough beds. This even allows us to save money on accommodations by not needing as many bedrooms.
Packing cubes are an incredibly useful travel gift idea for families. By getting a different color for each member of the family, you can keep everyone's clothes organized. Go an extra step and save space with these compression cubes.
An inflatable booster car seat for kids makes it easy to keep your kids safe in a taxi while not hauling around large booster seats. The mifold is another travel gift idea that offers a two pack for anyone buying for multiple kids.
A great travel gift idea for anyone obsessed with coffee, here is a portable espresso machine. Whether you are hiking, camping or catching an early morning train, you never have to worry about missing your morning cup of jo!
One of the best gifts ideas for kids who love to travel is the Epic! Digital Library subscription. With over 40,000 online books you no longer need to carry heavy books. Epic! has plenty of books to keep kids busy on long car or train rides!
Parents will love this travel gift idea as it lets kids can carry their own stuff. Pack their travel backpack with a tablet, books and snacks for the flight. They can also use it for hiking or sightseeing.
With cameras, phones, tablets and laptops, families have a lot of devices to charge when they travel. A portable charger is one of the best ravel gift ideas for families. You don't need to stress about having your phone or camera battery dying on extra long days out with a portable charger!
A perfect travel gift idea for adventurous families, a waterproof camera like the GoPro will make sure you capture ever single moment. From snorkeling to bike riding, you can take it with you everywhere!
Don't travel with a heavy DSLR when you can get amazing pictures with the much smaller Sony Alpha a6000 mirrorless camera. This is the camera we use and it comes on all our adventures with it. It's small enough to easily carry even on full days hiking with kids.
A fun travel gift idea for kids who love to write, get them writing in their own travel journal. They will love looking back on the memories. For younger kids we had this Go! Kids Interactive Travel Journal.
Possibly one of the best gift ideas for travel toys. We pack LEGO sets that are around 100 pieces. The kids love putting them together and then using them for creative play for the whole trip! Take them apart each time you change hotels or locations and the fun starts all over!
A thoughtful travel gift idea for adventurous parents of small kids. A backpack carrier is the best way to get out on the trails when traveling with a baby or toddler. We've owned the Deuter Kid Comfort and had no trouble traveling and flying with our backpack carrier.
Another excellent travel gift idea for parents. A good lightweight travel stroller is always well worth the money. This one has a good canopy and reclining seat. You'll get plenty of use out of it in the airport and while out sightseeing!
We wouldn't travel without a baby carrier. They are must for flying with a baby and for getting around. Even if you use a travel stroller, you'll find plenty of times when you'll want to carry your baby as well. Every new parent would love this thoughtful travel gift idea.
For toddlers who like to walk, a toddler carrier is well worth packing for when little legs get tired.
