You are here because you have a little traveler on your hands. A kid who took an interest and liking to observing and wanting to explore the world around them. There is no better way to feed that interest than to give them gifts that will allow them to explore from the comfort of their home or enhance their travel experience. Whatever it is, you will be sure to find it on this list of Must-Have Gifts for Little Travelers.

*BuddyPhones Inflight

These are not your average headphones. Not only do they come in fun colors, but they are made especially for children, with three volume settings at safe decibel levels, along with soft and cushiony ear pads. Our daughter brings hers with her everywhere we go. Since the headphones can fold into a smaller, more compact size, it makes it easier for the little ones to carry, especially when placed in the drawstring carry case. You know they (at least mine doesn’t) like to carry anything!

  • MJ

    My daughter would love every one of these items especially the costume.

  • KoKoa Magazine

    These are the cutiest gifts for the little. My kids are too big for the other things but I can see them enjoing the doodle board. Plus it’s creative play without actual screen time. I love that.

  • I am so happy for this cute little guide for little travelers. When I have kids I will be making my kids little avid travelers with me!

  • For my daughter’s third birthday I bought her a Trunki. She still has it and she is nine. It definitely lasts a long time.

  • I really love the Boogie Boards for doodling. That would keep my kids busy for hours.

    These are such cute ideas! Wish I had one of these cute suitcases when I was younger!

    What a great round-up. The headphones are awesome.

  • Listen that Emirates cabin crew uniform is the cutest! I always have a great experience flying with them. These are all great ideas to keep the little one occupied during travel.

  • They have so much nowadays to help kids handle traveling. We always took a road trip but a lot of these would have been helpful.

  • Kemkem

    The Little Passport looks so awesome. I think any kid would love that. I also like the Emirates uniform. I recently flew with them to Dubai and it was pretty cool. Headphones are always a good idea too :-).

  • We have the 50 Cities in the USA book and LOVE it! I NEED those headphones for my children and all of their devices – so that the husband and I can have conversations in the car again! LOL!

  • Maria

    We love the Trunki!!! A MUST for travel!
