Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love Music

Headphones are a must for travel. These glitzy Descendants Headphones are the perfect choice for girls who are a little too old for cartoon characters and a little too young for expensive headphones. I love that these feature cushy padding and a sturdy rope cord that won’t tangle. Pair them with the Descendants Boom Box with Mic to thrill your music lover.

Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love Disney

If you can’t make it to Disneyland or Disney World this holiday season, the Disney LEGO Castle is the next best thing for advanced LEGO builders. Splurge on this gigantic castle, which features more than 4,000 pieces. This set will keep Disney fans busy during the holiday season and beyond. For younger girls, choose the LEGO Disney Princess Belle’s Enchanted Castle Building Kit (ages 6-12) or the Disney Frozen Friends Jigsaw Puzzle (ages 8+). (Take a peek at gifts for grown-up Disney fans here.)

Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love Reading

Miroslav Sasek’s latest book This Is America: A National Treasury makes a great gift for young globetrotting readers. It’s just as colorful as his classic travel guides and gives a great nostalgic view of America’s most popular destinations. Check out Sasek’s other books in his This Is series, which highlight destinations around the world.

Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love to Accessorize

The Lil Lockitz Vacay Set will keep girls busy on plane rides or car trips. They can customize travel-themed lockets that can be worn as jewelry or used to accessorize backpacks. Another great gift idea for little fashionistas is a Rainbow Loom. Get this carrying case to keep Rainbow Loom bands organized while traveling. My 6-year-old daughter can spend hours making bracelets and chokers with her friends.

Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love to Swim

Fin Fun Mermaid Tail will make dreams come true for strong swimmers on your gift list. They come in sizes for tots to teens, and adults too. Add some cute goggles like Giggly Goggles that won’t snag hair, or flashy Bling2O Goggles (with rhinestones and pretend eyelashes). She’ll be the talk of the hotel pool!

Gift Ideas for Girls Who Love Arts and Crafts

One of my favorite gift ideas for artsy girls who travel is a set of colored pencils and coloring books. This gift set of 48 Watercolor Pencils from ColoritPRO comes in a study cardboard tube, making it perfect for drawing and painting on vacation. Pair these with this fun Ultimate Travel Coloring Book by Lonely Planet and your girl is good to go!
