We’ve been looking at travel products for months to bring you a holiday gift guide full of must have items. The Bébé Voyage team has been on the lookout for products that are fun and support travel with a family. You’ll find something for everyone on this roundup from the littlest traveler to the oldest traveling with you.

 

Solar Power Bank | Hands down the best power bank we’ve owned. You can charge the battery from the wall, or if you find yourself on a train without power outlets simply set it in the window to recharge. The F. Dorla Power Bank also has a flashlight, which comes in handy frequently when traveling. The carabiner means it can clip to anything. We like to keep it clipped to the stroller charging while we roam around a new city.

Skyroam Mobile Hotspot | Bring the wifi with you on your travels with this portable wifi hotspot and power bank. Instant coverage in 100+ countries. Competitive pricing plans with unlimited data for around $9/day. Plus you can buy day passes as you need them. Now there is no need to switch out sim cards as you criss-cross the globe updating your social media profiles.

Bag Bungie | The Bag Bungie keeps two bags balanced on top of each other, giving you an extra hand. I’m always trying to balance bags only to find that the top one has swung down around the handle of the roller bag. No more with this little bungie! 

Eagle Creek Pack It Specter Compression Cubes | These are no ordinary packing cubes. The compression zipper gives you even more space. Perfect for trips where you need to carry lots of winter weather gear or want to go carry-on only.

Zero Grid Family Passport Holder | The Zero Grid Family Passport Holder keeps you organized and protected on the go. It holds up to 6 passports, 4-10 cards and protects your identify with RFID blocking materials. It’s water resistant, so you don’t have to worry when a water bottle leaks in your bag.

 

 

CoziGo Sleep Easy Cover | Getting baby to sleep on the go is essential so the CoziGo Cover keeps their on-the-go sleep environment dark no matter where you are. The CoziGo pops up from a small circle and fits on bassinets (including the one on the airplane) as well as strollers.

Lug-A-Bug | This simple device turns any rolling suitcase into a seat for kids under 60lbs. It packs flat so you’re not wasting room bringing it along. The Lug-A-Bug is the perfect way to move kids and luggage around without needing an extra hand.

Baby K’Tan Smart Gear Diaper Bag | The Baby K’Tan Diaper Bag received an update for 2017 giving it anti-microbial, water-resistant, odor-resistant, FDA food grade lining in all 14 of its storage pockets and its changing pad. Its small size appeals to traveling families.

NumNum Utensils | These pre-spoons are the perfect way to introduce the concept of utensils to interested babies. They are small and easy to pack and keep kids interested at meals so you can eat! They look funny but the’ve been a huge win in our house.

Bubi Bottle | This silicone water bottle is perfect for the traveling family. It can hold hot or cold liquids, can be frozen and rolls up when not in use. Use it to carry baby formula or even stretch it around your phone to keep it safe from moisture. It reverses completely for easy cleaning. The silicone also makes it mold resistant which is perfect for when it gets lost in the bottom of your bag.

 

Dock & Bay Travel Beach Towel | These microfiber beach towels are full size but pack up small so you can bring your own towel no matter where you are headed. Sand doesn’t stick to this microfiber towel, so you can pack up quickly without bringing the beach home in your suitcase. Once you have one you’ll throw it in your bag for every trip!

MiFold Grab & Go Booster Seat | Lugging a car seat may be the worst part of traveling with kids. Designed for kids 4 and up the MiFold booster easily fits in a backpack and is perfect for when you’re on the go.

ZFlyte Case Scooters | We are huge fans of kids carrying their own luggage. The ZFlyte suitcase scooter is a great way to keep kids moving without you having to carry them. They come in two sizes so kids as young as two can scoot along with you. We have both sizes to accommodate my 3 and 5 year old and can’t say enough good things about these suitcases. They come in some of the cutest designs too.

Moonlight Story Projector | Take this Moonlight Story Projector with you to turn your phone into a storybook projector. It is small, compact and lighter than a book. Project stories onto the ceiling while you read. Tap the app for magical sound effects with every story. The kids can’t wait to turn out the lights knowing a Moonlight Story is on the way.

Travel Tracker Map | The Landmass Travel Tracker Map is a great way to keep track of your travel memories. We love the variety of maps available from Landmass Travel. We tried these scratch-off maps ourselves and love the quality. The U.S., Canada and Australia on the world maps all include state outlines for more detail. The World Map features the country flags. We are also eyeing up the U.S. National Park Map for an upcoming U.S. adventure.

 

Tegu Magnetic Blocks | The Tegu Magnetic Blocks were on our list last year too, but they are probably the most recommended travel toy in Club Bébé Voyage. We love the Tegu Travel tote made from durable felt for its durability and ability to hold up to 60 blocks. The 42 block Tegu Set will provide hours of fun on the go.

Pretend Play World Traveler | This adorable pretend play kit from Anthropologie is perfect for your little world traveler. Our kids love pretending to check bags and stamp passports. The stickers are a winner with little ones. We added a map book for a true adventure around the world.

Magnetic World Map | We love this magnetic world map. It’s perfect for planning trips with the kids or just reviewing world geography. The magnets are sturdy and good for even little hands.

Brio Take Along Train | The take along train set comes in a handy travel case that doubles as the train track. It comes with an engine and a car with a bell and is sure to entertain your little travelers no matter where you are going.

Glow In The Dark Magnatab | Use the magnetic pens to pop metal beads into the holes to create whatever you want. Your finger easily erases by pushing them back in. (Beads are completely self contained so they won’t pop out.) This board glows in the dark which adds some fun to dark car and plane rides. This simple toy provides hours of entertainment to kids of all ages.

No matter where you are headed this holiday season pick up a KeepEmQuiet kit to keep your kids entertained. We love that the KeepEmQuiet kits are packed full of activities your kids will love without you having to do any work. They would make perfect gifts for the little travelers in your life.
