Travel Gifts for Toddlers

Airplane Cutlery

A friend had these for her toddler, and as a bit of an Av Geek, I adored them!  This Fork and Spoon set fits the bill for any budding young traveller. For latest prices see here.

Travel Neck Pillow

This Trunki travel neck pillow supports little heads for those over two. There are hidden magnets so the travel pillow connects under the chin to form a soft and supportive cushion – which stops your child’s head from rolling forward. For more information and latest prices see here.


When you are looking for gifts for kids who travel, then you can’t go far wrong with some earphones. These CozyPhones Ear Phones for kids are volume limited, comfortable for those smaller ears. They come in a variety of styles and different animals.


Ride on Luggage

There are several options available these days and pro and cons of taking them. For us, we found a Trunki had it’s uses for a short time when travelling. Now they are 4 and 6 we opt for a backpack for them each but when they were aged 2 it came in very handy with long waits at the airport and in queues. For sleeping, the BedBox looks a great dual use option too. I’ve not tried it but it’s suitable for a child up to 7 years old. (For more sleeping on plane trips, see here)

Travel Wallet

This is a pretty, stylish and a great practical travel gift – RFID blocking travel wallet and passport holder. This RFID (radio frequency identification) blocking travel documents wallet is stylish and practical at the same time – preventing card detail theft. This style comes in over 30 different colours too! For more information and to see the other fab colours see here.

Packing Cubes

Seriously, where have these been all my life? I had heard about them and then my husband bought some for himself. Needless to say, we have since bought more. It makes organising suitcase so much easier. We always split our clothes between 2 or 3 cases, in case one goes missing, so this helps keep us all organised. You can check and compare latest prices here.

Travel Gifts for Dads


My husband has the Kindle Paperwhite. He loves his gadget but likes different ones for different purposes, rather than one product fits all. He likes how reading is much easier in the sunlight, it’s light and waterproof. His thoughts are, “it’s lightweight and convenient – it can literally carry 1000’s in a small device. It has a discreet light, so I don’t need to use the one in my plane seat. The ability to look up words or phrases, quotes etc (when connected to the internet) is useful too.”

Personalised Luggage Tag

For a Father’s Day gift, we bought a leather luggage tag – personalised with his initials. The one we bought was from Not On The HighStreet by Vida Vida

Digital Luggage Scale

A digital luggage scale is perhaps not the most exciting present in the world, but it is incredibly useful! I’m always borrowing his for press trips away.  This one by Camry handles up to 110lbs/50kg and makes a perfect stocking filler – especially if you are looking for ideas of Christmas travel gifts! For more information and latest prices see here.

  1. Hi from the Isle of Skye UK,

    I wondered if you’d like to take a look at washog, travel laundry bag character, and toy tidy, that also turns into a big yellow hog friend when stuffed? Kids seem to love it, and it puts an end to floordrobe and plastic bags forever.
    It folds into it’s own snout, and can easily be popped into a travel bag for some holiday adventures.

    Many thanks
