Best Father’s Day Gifts for the Traveling Dad
Surprise Dad with a the best Father’s Day gift that he actually wants, instead of another coffee mug or tie. Better yet, invoke the travel spirit in dad by getting him a travel friendly gift that will make life on the road or in the skies a better experience overall. We’ve compiled a Father’s Day gift guide for the traveling dad that he is sure to love!
Best gift to keep Dad connected!
In this era where our lifeline is literally our mobile phones, there is nothing worse than seeing the battery level getting to a scarily low level. Yikes! Avoid this common stressor by traveling with an added battery pack that acts as a backup battery to your phone. This will be a lifesaver when you can’t actually get to an outlet to charge your phone or device. The Mophie Powerstation allows you to charge multiple devices at the same time, including tablets, smartphones and USB devices. It will keep tablets playing movies throughout an entire flight, and its slim design slips easily into dad’s pocket. It doesn’t get more convenient than that!
Keep things quiet for Dad!
Hook dad up with the hottest pair of headphones for his travels! Although a bit pricey, they are definitely worth their weight in gold. The BOSE QuietComfort 35 WirelessHeadphones II are noise cancelling and are perfect for those long flights to block out all of the background noise. No need to worry about messy cords twisting up since they are wireless and bluetooth enabled. Enjoy up to 20 hours of wireless listening per charge!
The perfect gift to keep Dad groomed!
Step up dad’s grooming game with this handcrafted leather Dopp Kit from LifetimeLeatherCo. This toiletry kit, made in the USA, comes in an array of colors and has a water-resistant interior that makes unfortunate spills a breeze to clean up. The best part is that it can be personalized with a monogram or name of up to 7 characters. This makes a great Father’s Day gift that is unique to the special traveling dad in your life!

This will be a gift that dad loves and will have him looking stylish when traveling abroad!
Keep Dad hydrated with a stainless steel flask!
Make sure dad gets his daily intake of H20 and stays hydrated when he is on the go! Hydro Flask is the “it” water bottle of the moment. Made of a double-wall stainless steel internal construction, Hydro Flask boasts the reputation for keeping cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for hours longer than the expected standard. If you really want to splurge on dad for his special day, spoil him with the Hydro Flask Starter Kit that includes a variety of extra accessories such as a bottle sling, a bottle brush and an insulated sport cap. It really is the perfect gift!

Keep track of Dad’s luggage!
Help dad keep track of his luggage with an Away x Tile Luggage Tag. The small square “tile” slips into the 100% leather luggage tag and will track the last known location of dad’s luggage. You can also use it in reverse, for instance if you are in your hotel room but have somehow misplaced your phone, press the tile from the luggage tag, and your phone will ring! Dad will never be late to a flight again because he’s frantically searching for his phone. Ahhh the wonders of modern technology!
Great gift to keep Dad resting comfortably!
There nothing wore than an uncomfortable pillow that just doesn’t let you get a good night’s sleep. Whether it’s at an airbnb, on a road trip, a plane, or on a camping trip, the key to catching a solid set of zzz’s is a comfy pillow. Treat dad to a compact Down Travel Pillow from the Company Store. Sleep like a baby on this premium hypoallergenic down pillow with a smooth cotton shell. If feathers are a problem for your traveling dad, it’s also available in a down alternative as well. It folds up compactly into its own storage bag and fits perfectly into travel luggage. Dad will be thanking you for this thoughtful gift for years to come!

Keep Dad’s valuables dry while traveling!
This is the perfect gift for the adventuring dad! Whether he likes to get out on the boat to fish or sail, or pitch a tent in a campground, you never know when the waters can get rough or the weather can become inclement. The Yeti Sidekick Dry is the perfect gift to keep dad’s valuables safe and dry. Store keys, cellphones, wallets and more in this compact 100% waterproof carrier. It’s constructed with a powerfully magnetic HydroShield™ Closure and RF-welded seams that repel any sign of moisture. The Yeti Sidekick Dry attaches to a variety of Yeti bags, coolers, backpacks and carry-alls.
Keep Dad entertained this Father’s Day!
Don’t let this tiny compact speaker fool you into thinking its sound will be subpar. On the contrary, it can go head-to-head with most larger sized speaker sets, with its 360-degree sound and big bass. For the traveling dad, the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is the perfect musical companion. It is waterproof, drop proof and it floats! That means if the kids decide to play a game of catch with it, or throw it in the vacation rental pool, there’s no need to fear! It will keep on playing music without incident. Dad can pack it in his suitcase and use a bluetooth connection to play his favorite music or podcasts at the beach, in his hotel or even in the shower!
