A Reciprocal Membership allows free or discounted entry at locations across the country for Museums, Zoos, Nature Centers, and Aquariums. This is an invaluable gifts for families on the road!
A gift card to a website that turns travel photographs into treasures such as photo books, calendars, puzzles, and blankets is an excellent option. Shutterfly is my preferred website, but others such as Snapfish or Blurb and even Walgreens and CVS also offer great photo gift options.

Travel Tracking Maps
Avid travelers love to track their travels prominently to show which states and countries they have visited. The most popular maps I’ve seen are USA and World Sticker Decal Maps. There are a whole variety of fun maps these days, including Scratch Off Maps, Cork Globes, and even National Park Maps. (Read about more ways to Track Your Travels Here.)

One of my favorite gifts to receive are travel books! Here are some books that may inspire new adventures or travel dreams.
Kids Books about Travel

Specific to traveling in the United States, these also look like fun picks.
The Wonders of America is another popular, non-fiction book series that my children enjoyed when visiting landmarks across the country.
