Are you on the lookout for the perfect gift for families who love to travel with their little ones? You’re in the right place! At Baby on the Move, we understand that family travel is not just about the destination; it’s about making sustainable choices and creating lasting memories. This holiday season, we’re determined to spread the message of mindful gifting. Here are some ideas to inspire your upcoming shopping trips.

We’ve organized our gift ideas into 3 categories to delight those who, like us, love travelling with their kids: gifts perfect for families with babies, for kids up to 10 years old and for parents themselves 😊

We have collected 9 gift ideas for you to make your Christmas shopping easier.

Mom breastfeeding with our Nursing Cocoon

Gift Ideas for families with babies
(up to 3 years old):

Luxury baby care set: here’s the secret to parenting on the go: find a brand that not only offers exceptional quality but also cares about your adventures with mini travel-sized versions of their products or eco-friendly refillable packaging.  Sounds like the perfect gift, right?

Nursing Cover: A nursing cover like our Nursing Cocoon  is an invaluable accessory for a mom on the go. It offers a private, cozy cocoon for nursing or pumping wherever the day takes her, from a sunny park bench to a cozy café corner. Available in a variety of prints and solid colors, there’s a design to reflect every mother’s personal style. And why not, it also helps your partner if they need to bottle-feed the baby without distractions!

A portable, safe, and rechargeable nightlight: You know that when you travel with little kids, the environment (the room, the bed) is all different from what they are used to. This can make it challenging for them to fall asleep. So a familiar nightlight that can create a cozy atmosphere in which they can sleep is a grateful gift.  By the way, not only fun for kiddies but also for parents when they have to get up for the umpteenth time in the night 😉

Gift ideas for kids
(up to 10 years old):

Explorer’s backpack: A sturdy and stylish backpack can become a child’s treasured companion for every adventure. It’s ideal for tossing kids essentials like snacks, a water bottle, and cherished toy, a rock, a piece of tow… if you know, you know 😛

Erasable coloring markers: A set of erasable markers allows kids to unleash their creativity across various surfaces. There are markers specially designed to be kid-friendly, with vibrant colors and easy to clean, so parents can relax while the little ones create.

Wooden animal puzzle: A wooden puzzle with thick pieces serves as both a challenge and a toy, with pieces that can be used to build towering animal stacks or an imaginative zoo. Made from sustainable materials and safe paints, it’s a gift that entertains and educates.

Retro-inspired waterproof camera: A waterproof camera brings a touch of nostalgia and encourages kids to document their explorations. It’s a fun way to introduce them to photography and capture memories from every adventure. It is also a nice gift when kids get older and want to have more responsibility, taking care of a maybe more expensive device is a good lesson for them and a trust exercise for the parents!

Giving eraser markers to kids

Gift ideas for parents:

Reusable silicone food bags: Our Yummy Bags are a practical and eco-friendly solution for busy parents. These versatile leakproof food containers are perfect for packing and preserving meals, babypurees, snacks and fruits on the move, while highlighting sustainability.

Personalized insulated bottle: An insulated bottle is more than a beverage container; it’s a personalized travel companion. Far better than plastic bottles, stainless steel bottles keep drinks at the perfect temperature. And let’s be honest, they are way cooler to carry 😊  Less plastic to throw away.

Discover gifts that inspire adventure and foster an appreciation for our planet with each use. We hope these ideas help you find the ideal present for the globe-trotting family & friends in your life.

Don’t stress, enjoy this holiday season 😉

With love,  Sarah
