Family Travel Gear Essentials

The greatest family travel gear

Traveling with kids can be a lot of fun and a lot of work, especiaily during the holiday season. Whether you are packing up the car and hitting the road this holiday season or flying to an exotic desitnation for some exciting family adventure, we’ve found a few items you might want to pick up before heading out the door. My Family Travel Collection has great travel products that help make navigating the world a little easier, more organized and as always, a little bit more stylish.

I’ve had nine years of traveling with kids both domestically and internationally and I know that making sure you are equipped with the right travel gear is very important. Not only do these things help keep you organized but they’ll help keep you and your spouse sane and happy so you can enjoy your vacation.

Travel stroller

Joovy makes the best travel strollers around, from the super lightweight Groove to the Caboose Ultralight. These strollers are top quality, compact and easy to fold up and store whether you are on a bus, train or plane. If you are traveling with a toddler and an older child, the Joovy Caboose tandum stand-up stroller is the best bet, making it possible for your older child to have a place to sit and rest once their little legs get tired from being on the move.

Go Pro camera

This is the latest must-have for any family that plans on having some wild adventures while on vacation. Whether you are zip lining, bungee jumping or white water rafting you’ll want to strap on a Go Pro camera to catch all the action.

Kids’ iPad case

We have this for my 7-year-old son and not only does he love it, but everyone always asks us where we go it. This iPad case really protects the iPad from major drops and stumbles. My son has dropped it down the stairs and no damage. We also love it because it has a carrying handle which also acts as a stand.

Wet bags

I always hate putting shoes in with clean clothes so to protect the clothing put the kids shoes in a bag. These bags also help for wet swimsuits, because the kids always want one last dip in the pool while Mom is packing, so this way they can swim and you have a place to put their wet suits.

Carry-on bag organizer

I cannot stand it when my carry-on bag looks like a bomb went off. With so many tech devices and their cords and chargers, everything can get tangled up very quickly. Not to mention the arsenal of emergency items we moms carry around with us at all times. A bag organizer will help you keep things in place and allow you to grab those passports out in a second’s notice.

Waterproof cell phone case

If you are planning to do any water activities on vacation then you will need a waterproof cell phone case. You do not want to miss the action shots of your kids surfing, petting the dolphins or coming down the waterslides.

Laptop / camera backpack

A backpack of any kind is essential when traveling with kids, in my opinion. Either make Dad wear it or find yourself a cool one. It really helps to be hands-free.

Kid cot

Just in case you are crashing at the in-laws or camping, and have rented a cabin with 2 beds and you have that third child. This travel cot is a great option for kids.

Rolling luggage

Clearly you need some luggage. You might already have a set, or it’s time to replace that suitcase with the missing wheel and broken zippers. I love this stylish and colorful Swiss set that has the spinner wheels. Spinner wheels also make it easy for your kids to push your suitcase should you need a little extra help with all the bags. I also like that you can easily spot this luggage from a mile away, not confusing it with anyone else’s luggage.
