1. Sand Bucket & Beach Toys
Sand buckets and beach toys are exceptionally perfect Easter basket fillers for when you’re going on an Easter or spring break beach vacation.
Plus, the sand bucket can double as the actual Easter basket.
2. Mess Free Travel Coloring Pack
Your kids’ entertainment doesn’t need to be messy, especially when flying or road tripping.
This Crayola Color Wonder mess-free coloring pack is super fun (I personally loved it as a traveling kid) and practical for the parents, too.
3. Magnetic Doodle Board
Similarly, a magnetic doodle board also provides endless coloring fun for younger kids without the messy hassle of pens and markers.
This specific magnetic doodle board even comes with a bunny-shaped magnet stamp — perfect for an Easter basket.
4. Sticker Book
Can you see a pattern with these travel Easter basket fillers for younger kids? They are all messless!
While the kids are entertained by these travel activities, the parents can relax, knowing that they won’t have to try to clean marker off the airplane seat.
That’s why these sticker books are such a hit for travelers, too, just like the mess-free coloring activities.
5. Travel Scavenger Hunt Card Game
Eye spy becomes boring fast.
With a little help from this physical travel scavenger hunt card game, your kids will stay entertained on road trips for hours.
6. Magnetic Travel Board Games
Furthermore, games that have magnetic pieces are super travel-friendly, as they won’t fall down or roll under the car/plane seats.
This magnetic treasure hunt game as well as this magnetic road trip bingo game not only serve their practical magnetic purpose, but they also will inspire wanderlust in your kids.
7. Kids Vacation Journal
Keeping a travel journal helps us all easily process the world around us, and it doesn’t only have to be for the big kids!
This kids vacation journal contains easy writing prompts so that younger kids can document their trips to look back on for the rest of their lives.
8. Wooden Airplane Kit
Maybe it’s the pilot-kid in me, but I would have loved getting this affordable wooden airplane kit in my travel Easter basket when I was little. I can’t imagine any travel-loving kid disagreeing.
Everyone needs a good pair of sunglasses — even your kids.
This fashionable sunglasses pack comes with three pairs, so you can either split the pairs up between different baskets or fill more space in one basket.
10. Premade Packing List (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Packing lists are a traveler’s love language. Having this pre-made packing list notepad will make them feel extra productive, and also save packing time and space.
11. Scratch-Off Map
Every traveler wants one of these scratch-off world destination maps to chart and check off all of their adventures.
12. Airplane & Car Seat Phone Mount
I have one of these airplane seat phone mounts, and it is so convenient for the many domestic flights that don’t have TVs.
Such a fun, practical and unexpected travel Easter basket idea for any age.
13. Hands-Free Suitcase Drink Caddy
Nothing is more annoying than full hands in the airport.
Your older kids will think this hands-free suitcase drink caddy is genius, and your younger kids won’t have to constantly ask you for their drink.
14. Popular Travel-Friendly Card Games
Few things beat a post-pool family vacation card game.
Travel-friendly games are sure to create core family memories after a nice spring break swim.
15. Foreign Candy (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Foreign snack boxes are a super unique and exciting gift for any aged traveler.
I personally got a foreign snack box in my Christmas stocking in high school, and I was ecstatic. The Aero mint chocolate bars are my absolute favorite candy bar.
16. Language-Learning Deck Of Cards
Growing up, my family always ended up making a stop at the dollar store to pick up decks of cards while on family vacation. So, when I found these language playing cards, I had to add them to this travel Easter basket ideas list.
They come in tons of different languages, too.
17. Leather Journal
As previously mentioned, travel journaling helps you process, remember and look back on all of your travels.
Therefore, a small leather journal like this one is an awesome Easter basket filler for older kids.
18. Portable Charger Power Bank
Anker is a leading brand when it comes to portable chargers. The reviews speak for themselves!
19. Sunglasses (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Zenni has tons of high-quality, affordable sunglasses for men, women and young kids of any fashion sense.
I recently ordered this exact pair of sunglasses from Zenni Optical, and I am in love with them. They are so cute and only $6.95 for the frames! I added a prescription as well as the tinted lenses, and they cost a grand total of only $11.90.
20. Travel Size Lotion
Flying = chapped hands. It’s a fact.
Amazon has a great, cheap selection of travel-size lotion sets, such as this set that features flowery, springy scents and colored packaging.
21. Non-Liquid Lotion Stick (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Likewise, while we’re on the topic of dry skin, this non-liquid lotion stick is perfect for travelers because it won’t count toward the TSA liquid regulations.
This is a genius travel essential.
22. Travel Size Hand Sanitizer
When your kids are traveling, they won’t always have access to a sink with soap.
Travel size hand sanitizers are a definite travel must-have, and they might even fit inside your Easter eggs.
23. Travel Adult Coloring Books (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Coloring books are no longer just for young kids. Your older kids will love this travel-themed adult coloring book for long drives and flights.
24. Instax Mini Polaroid Camera
So, maybe polaroid cameras are a little expensive to be a travel Easter basket filler, depending on your budget. But, the film is affordable.
If your traveler has a polaroid camera, film would be a game-changing Easter basket gift.
25. Wireless Mobile Photo Printer (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
In addition, an alternative to a polaroid camera is this Kodak wireless mobile printer. This pocket-size printer connects to your smartphone via bluetooth, allowing you to print a polaroid-size photo from your phone’s camera roll in seconds.
I have one and absolutely love it for printing travel photos on the go.
26. Hydrating Hand Masks
As previously mentioned, flying typically leads to dried out hands. These hydrating hand masks will help your traveler’s hands recover as quickly as possible.
27. Lip Balm
Unfortunately, flying also equals chapped lips. Hydrating lip balm, like this organic lip balm set, will help your traveler’s lips recover quickly, too.
28. A New Book (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
Older traveling Easter-basket-recipients would love a new book to read on their next flight or long drive.
Recently, I’ve been obsessed with Atomic Habits as well as The 4-Hour Workweek.
Atomic Habits offers a mind-blowing perspective on making habits, breaking habits and identity formation. Furthermore, The 4-Hour Workweek teaches step-by-step how to automate your life so you can work less, earn more and travel more.
29. Travel Jewelry Case
Nothing is more annoying than packing jewelry pieces to match your outfits only to find out that they somehow tangled themselves together, rendering them useless.
This travel jewelry organizer is a brilliant solution. Apart from the compartments for other jewelry items like rings or earrings, the hooks keep necklaces from tangling.
30. Car Sickness Cure
Essential oils are truly a travel essential, particularly if you ever experience motion sickness and/or anxiety while traveling.
This Migrastil Migraine essential oils roller stick cures motion sickness (from planes, cars, trains, rollercoaster or anything really). I wholeheartedly stand by this and never travel without one.
All you have to do is roll the oils on the back of your neck and/or sniff the inhalers for 2-5 minutes, and your motion sickness will disappear. (This is coming from someone who suffers from regular migraines. Trust me.)
31. Essential Oil Rollers
In addition, lavender essential oils are known to reduce anxiety and promote rest. Whether you suffer from travel anxiety or are looking for a natural sleep remedy, this travel-size lavender essential oil roller is phenomenal.
32. Travel Size Perfume Or Cologne Bottle (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
My signature perfume that I wear daily is the YSL Mon Paris. This scent is perfect for the girl who prefers a sassy perfume over a flowery or musky one.
It comes in a 3.04 OZ size (TSA approved), 1.6 OZ size (TSA approved), 1 OZ size (TSA approved) and a 0.34 OZ mini rollerball size (most affordable and TSA approved).
33. Refillable Travel Size Perfume/Cologne Bottles
Similarly, these refillable travel-size perfume bottles are super affordable, easy to use, very high quality and obviously perfect for when your kids can’t bring their favorite full-size perfume or cologne through security.
34. Mini Razor With Travel Case (Travel Easter Basket Ideas)
This mini Venus razor is absolutely genius. It even comes with a travel case and three refills. It is one of the best travel Easter basket ideas for older kids on this list.
35. Travel Books
Lastly, a travel book about an upcoming trip would make a perfect travel Easter basket idea.
You can buy a travel guide book on Amazon for any and every destination nowadays.
Don’t Forget Eggs Or Grass For Your Travel Easter Basket Ideas
Everyone loves a youthful, nostalgic, filled Easter egg.
Also, did you know paper Easter grass is safe for pets, unlike plastic grass?
And You’ll Need An Easter Basket, Too, Of Course
Opt for this affordable set of colorful Easter baskets or this wicker basket if you’re looking for a nicer reusable alternative.
