For the record, I own each and one of these items and I would personally recommend them as great gifts. I’m always on the lookout for unique non-toy type things for kids. If I can find a special something age appropriate and travel related, I snatch it up immediately because I love the thought of introducing little ones to the idea of exploration. There are so many places JetSet Tot says she wants to go; however I always love when she learns about the destination first – it only makes traveling that much more exciting.
JetSet Family approved travel gifts for kids
New York, Phew York is not your ordinary book. It’s a scratch-n-sniff adventure written by Amber C. Jones. JetSet Tot really loves this book. Not only because it shares some of places she’s looking to visit when she goes back to New York City, but she thinks it’s so funny to smell every good and bad Manhattan has to offer. $34.00
ZigZag City Guides for Kids are the ultimate travel must-have for kids. These gorgeous deck of cards, handy pocket map and postcards allow children to scout out the best places in: San Francisco, Paris, Rome, New York City and soon Chicago and London. Tot loves to be an integral part of planning our family vacation and really took a huge liking to these lovely card packs. So much, that now wants to order the Paris, London and Chicago ones just so she can study some new cities and we can plan our next family vacation spots! $24.00
Little Passports is my favorite subscription box out there right now! Not only is this is a fantastic way to learn about different countries and cultures, but possibly one of the best ways to dream up some pretty fun family vacations. Complete with a map, passport, postcards, and more, the most adorable mini-suitcase arrived with a note telling us to be on the lookout each month for a package from Sam and Sofia’s adventures. The following month, a special delivery came from Brazil with a “Wish You Were Here” letter and a great souvenir. Starting at $11.95/month
I am head over heels for this final destination Personalized Hometown Airport T-shirt for kids from Red Envelope. I had ordered the long sleeve one as a Christmas present for Tot and was blown over when it arrived. It is a really beautifully made shirt and Tot loved that not only her name was included as Co-Pilot, but she knew all too well what LAX meant and the flight number was the year she was born. Make sure to take into consideration it is a 100% cotton so it will shrink, so I suggest going a size up to be safe. $29.95
A great find from Pottery Barn Kids was this My Travel Journal “A World of Activities” to document where Tot has been and ideas of where to head off to next. Not your typical journal, this one is filled with preprinted pages for the little ones to remember addresses for postcards, a packing list, and questions about each getaway making it easy for little travelers to stay interested and excited about writing. $12.99
