If you travel a lot with your job, sometimes pick up a small momento of where you have been, to give to your children when you get home. It can (and should be) something simple, like a postcard or hotel sample writing pad. But don't overdo it - don't build up the expectation that you will always return with gifts every time. Sometimes a phone call in the morning or just before their bedtime, or arriving home earlier then planned can be the best present of all.
