I love to travel. My family loves to travel. I love the home I’ve created for my family, but its magical to see other places, meet people and experience history and nature. My kids took their first airplane ride as babies and look forward to each trip we take with wonder and excitement.
Building excitement for your family’s vacation is part of the joy in creating memories. When my boys were younger, I provided them with a Matchbox Foldout Playset that I designated only for airplane travel or road trips. Since my boys couldn’t play with it regularly at home, they were always very excited to see it again during our next vacation.
I created an eBay Collection of kid-friendly travel products as a holiday gift guide for traveling kids. These gifts are perfect for Christmas or an upcoming family trip.
A couple of my favorite gifts for kids are:
The Skip Hop Zoo Travel Blanket – Whether you’re hitting the road for a day trip or catching a flight for a family vacation, the Zoo travel blanket will make sure your child is happy and comfy on the go. The soft, sweet blanket easily tucks away into its own friendly portable pillow.
52 Fun Things to Do on the Plane (by Lynn Gordon) – With 52 ways to keep kids busy, happy, and occupied on the plane or at the airport, this book is a lifesaver. Happy kids mean relaxed parents!
Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.
Traveling doesn’t have to be – and really shouldn’t be – stressful. Moms and Dads, don’t sell yourself short. Give yourself or each other a gift that puts the “leisure” in travel. This gift guide for adult travelers includes opportunities to take good care of yourself.
A few of my favorite items in this Collection include:
The Fitbit Force Wireless Activity Sleep Pedometer Wristband – It helps you stay on top of your fitness goals – even while traveling. You can track steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, stairs climbed and all your active minutes throughout the day. At night, track your sleep and wake up silently with a vibrating alarm.
The Get Started Brightening Kit and body lotion from Andalou Naturals – It’s so easy to indulge a bit too much and then slack off on our normal routines when traveling. Take care of your body’s largest organ with these skin care products based on fruit stem cell science and Non GMO ingredients.
