There’s been a lot of buzz this holiday season about experience gifts for kids, and I’m all aboard. I love the idea of buying less stuff and am putting more focus this Christmas on creating lasting family memories. I’ll be surprising T with a road trip up to Asheville, North Carolina. After reading the Serafina series, she is eager to visit the Biltmore Estate. And, if we’re lucky, she’ll get to see some snow while we’re up there which is something we don’t get here in Florida. My plans are to fill T’s stocking with her favorite road trip snacks like Slim Jim, some car activities, and a note revealing plans for our road trip. She’s going to be so excited! I imagine a lot of you will also be hitting the road or the skies this holiday season, so it seems fitting to share some fun stocking stuffer ideas for traveling kids.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Traveling Kids
Avoid the sugar. The last thing you want is to give your kids a sugar rush while traveling. I recommend sticking mostly to filling, high-protein snacks such as seeds and nuts.
What is the perfect stocking stuffer for your traveling? Slim Jim, of course! This year, stuff those stockings with Slim Jim – the perfect on-the-go snack that everyone can agree on. Slim Jim gives a great pick-me-up boost without the worry of a sugar crash coming later.
Holiday Shopping Tip: Purchase Slim Jim at Walmart via Online Grocery Pick-Up. It is the BEST.
I use this service all the time. It is so much easier to order ahead online and pick it up. This service makes me a happy mom. Especially this time of the year!
How about a colorful new luggage tag?
For older kids, a new iPod with earbuds or a small tablet.
Gift new camera or disposable camera. Depending on where you’re heading, a small pair of binoculars would make a great stocking stuffer for traveling kids.
A new travel journal.
Small travel-friendly games, toys, and coloring books for when your family is on-the-go. Activity books make ideal stocking stuffers. I found some small Christmas-themed activity books, sticker books, and festive pencils at Walmart. If you have more than one child, card games are great. Small hand-held games and puzzles are good stocking stuffers too. Basically, look for things that will keep your child occupied for long stretches of time.
