Rick Steves’ European Christmas
For Christmas, there are few visuals that inspire travel more than this book and the accompanying DVD. “Who owns a DVD Player anymore?”, you’re asking. I understand, but how much more traditional and throwback a Holiday it would be if you did.
It is almost a requirement to have a new set of Uno Cards before any vacation. No family can do without. If you have never played, trust me, it’s hours of fun on the beach, next to a fire, or gathered on the bed in your hotel room.
Yoku Moku Cookies
What kid doesn’t enjoy a good cookie. These delectations from Yoku Moku are more than just any ordinary cookies, they are simply the best and are the perfect Christmas gift for that special kid in your life. The tins are collectible, help them start their collection this year and for years to come.
National Geographic Traveler and Afar Magazines
I love storytelling. I don’t necessarily like “Best of” or “Top Ten” Lists. When I want to get inspired, I want to hear stories. These two publications do just that. One of us would often read some of the articles out loud for the rest to hear and aspire the next trip to come.
Not for Parent’s Guide Books for Kids By Lonely Planet
2012 was the last time, we as a family went to Paris . Bailey was just 8. We purchased this book for her so she can have some input as to where to go and what to see. She had it with her constantly, studied it, and made sure we hit all the sights mentioned in the book. Which we did. If you are planning a trip to Paris soon, and you want your child(ren) to have a say with the sightseeing itinerary, think about putting this in the stocking. It surely added to our trip and experience and I’m sure it will yours.
My Travel Journal for kids
For Christmas, be different and go old school on the kid(s), forego the all the digital stuff and hand them something that every kid should have during their travels, a journal. This one is specifically made for kids 10-15 years of age when they look back years from now, they will thank you for the priceless memories.
Muji Photo Albums
For those who still like to print and save, here is a photo album that Brenda uses for our printed photos. We love it because it is plain and sleek.
Bailey and Brenda love these pens. I love to use them as well. I think they are the perfect ballpoint, nice to the hand, and comes in great colors. A nice addition to give that journal-writing person.
Travel Pillows from Airportag
These throw pillows are a great gift for a traveling family. When they are home, they can remember all the airports they have been to.
GoPro Hero 5
As for capturing moments, life has never been the same since purchasing one of these. They come in many models and many price points. I think this starter price point version is a great gift for that novice videographer (maybe the tween or teenager in your life).
