Travel Gifts for Father’s Day

Dads can be an absolute nightmare to buy for, they are notorious advocates for a homemade gift. However, when you have a great dad, you want to get them the world. If your father figure is an avid traveller, he will love these travel gifts whether he’s in the air getting ready to go or he’s planning his next adventure.

I inherited my love for travelling and adventure from my dad; from climbing trees in our back garden to feeding elephants in an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka, I’ve always been encouraged to follow my sense of adventure. So, every year I want to give my dad something that shows him how much he’s taught me and give him something he will get some real use out of as he continues his adventures with my Mum.

I have bought him almost all of these gifts throughout the years and he has loved every one of them and continues to use them. They’re pretty foolproof so hopefully, there’s something here for your father figure!

Keep track of his travels with a Scratch Map

A world map is a great gift for any traveller. This one lets you scratch off each country as you visit it so you can see all the countries you’ve been and all the countries you have left to visit with just one glance! It’s a great gift and one you’ll want for yourself!

Help him stay organised with a Travel Wallet

A travel wallet helps you keep all of you travel documents in one place. This wallet is so sleek looking and perfect for any dad who is responsible for keeping hold of the whole family’s boarding passes and passports.

Keep it all in one place with a Backpack

A backpack is a must-have accessory for any travelling dad. This one is great at holding plenty, it could even be his luggage for a weekend city break!

Inspire him with a Travel Guide

My (and my Dads) absolute favourite travel guide books are the Eyewitness Top 10 books. These books are so compact and break everything you could ever want to do/see or where you could stay in a city into top 10 lists. Who doesn’t love a listicle – even travel-savvy dads can benefit from them!

For him to freshen up after a long-haul with a Toiletry Bag

A shaving bag is a necessity for any man travelling. This handy travel toiletry bag will mean he can keep all his shaving gels/razors/ whatever else men use in one place and help him avoid any spillages when in transit!

Help him chill on the beach with Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

These are perfect for chilling on the beach or by the pool, and as they are wireless your dad can avoid dodgy string tan lines when he inevitably falls asleep in the sun!

Keep him sharp with a Shirt Carrier

I’m not much of a shirt wearer myself, but I can imagine it must be pretty annoying getting to your destination and unpacking only to realise your shirts have gotten crumpled in your case. This handy little unit will keep all his shirts crisp and ready to wear! Avoiding using any dodgy hotel irons.

For the “just landed” text keep him charged up with a Powerbank

Make sure that he always has enough power despite listening to your Spotify account non stop for the last 6 hours. A good shout especially as i-Phone batteries just seem to be getting worse these days!

I hope these have given you some ideas for travel gifts for your travelling dad this Father’s day!
