Traveling as a family is a memory to cherish. From taking the littlest babies to visit grandparents across the country for the first time, to traveling abroad with teenagers, there is no better way to forge unforgettable memories than by experiencing travel as a family. Holiday gifts that encourage wanderlust will inspire your favorite traveler to start planning their next bucket list excursion with you in mind. Daily Mom has done our research to select the best gifts to give the travelers in your life this merry season.
Perfect for the family that enjoys adventures in the great outdoor
If you are part of a family that enjoys camping, hiking, hunting, or just adventure-seeking in the world that surrounds you, then weather-related gear is probably on the top of your list every year. Not only is it essential that you dress the part for safety reasons, but for your own comfort as well. And to start the list of necessity, we top it with a great pair of boots for the whole family. Come rain or snow, Muck boots are a go-to for any outdoor activity you can think of. Their flex-foam neoprene is 100% waterproof, fleece lining keeps toes warm and cozy, and rubber soles make for a sturdy and durable walk. Muck Boots are famous for their high quality, high design, and ability to hold over time with great use through any messy or tough condition.
For kids, the new animal prints featured in the Kids Hale Boot will have your little one on a wildlife adventure, whether climbing trees, trudging through leaves, or digging through snow. Best for cold weather and snow, the insulated Kids Hale Boot, is an easy slip on and features a textured rubber sole with soft waterproof lining around the legs.
Not to be left out, infants can also be suited for cold weather with My First Mucks, a slip on bootie with super soft lining and easy closure.
For men, a great pair of hunting or hiking boots, such as the Arctic Outpost Lace Mid boot, are essential to getting through a cold season. Featuring a more tailored look than the traditional outdoor boot, this lace-up leather and rubber boot is ideal for any outing or function, and is sure to keep toes warm – whether they’re sitting in a tree stand, standing by a campfire, or cheering their favorite team on at the stadium.
Finally, for a stylish winter boot for the woman in your life, the Tremont Supreme is ideal. Featuring a beautiful multi-toned knit upper with metal badging, rubber soles and insulated fleece lining, this boot is perfect for keeping her feet and legs warm and dry, even in extreme temperatures. We love the sophistication, sleek style, and exceptional function of this winter boot!

Perfect for the lady in your life that typically hasn’t worn rain boots in years
Rain boots are all the rage right now, but if you have a woman in your life that is easily frustrated with the way that rain boots typically fit her, she’ll seriously love Jileon Rain Boots. Jileon Extra Wide Calf Rain Boots are perfect for the woman that hasn’t been able to wear traditional boots in years, because they are too tight and don’t fit comfortably over her calves. Jileon’s boots are the widest fitting rain boots in the United States, and honestly, probably even the world. They have a unique and patented double gusset that allows the boots to expand easily to fit a calf size up to 21″ wide. Since the gussets are totally adjustable, getting a secure fit unique to each person is amazing, and will restore faith that shoes and accessories can also be stylish for plus sized ladies.
For the women that don’t need the extra wide size, Jileon also has many styles available in wide calf that expand up to 18″ around, so there’s something for every lady at every size.
We love the Extra Wide Width Black and Plaid Rain Boots designed by Jessica Kane. The width is extra wide, yet the black and white plaid is stylish, so she’ll look chic and be comfortable for any job outdoors, whether that be a jaunt in some rain puddles, or morning chores on the farm. Also, every single pair of wellies from Jileon are quality made rubber, and guaranteed to last at least one year, with medium wear. They are versatile enough to travel with, since they are practical to wear in many different elements, and they are also comfortable and roomy. Truly a must-have for any traveling lady, and she’ll be able to pull her boots on and off at the airport with ease.
