Orlando International Airport, Orlando
Orlando is one of those rare airports that cater to children, featuring an arcade, a giant aquarium, and mini versions of local theme parks. but if the tots aren’t tagging along this trip, you can still remember them with a thoughtful present from one of the disney, seaworld, universal, or kennedy space center shops. www.orlandoairports.net

Manchester Airport, Manchester
Manchester gets a nod strictly for its claire’s franchises, which, as any parent with a young girl can tell you, are meccas for hair bobs, jewelry, makeup, and other girly doodads. plus, you can find cds, videos, and games at impulse, as well as trademark teddy bears and other tidbits from the New Hamleys toy-store outpost. www.manchesterairport.co.uk
