Father’s Day Gifts for the Travelling Dad

This Father’s Day why not get your dad some travel products he will love, use, and remember every time he travels? We have compiled a list of products ranging in price, for that traveler dad you have in your life.

The first thing we have is humorous luggage tags. Who wouldn’t laugh at these tags after a long flight? People are more willing to help you if you can make them laugh – this could truly be the gift that keeps on giving every time dad flies! This can range in price from $10-$100. The ones we feature below can be found here, here, and here.






“Swiss Army style” USB chargers can be the most genius thing to ever be seen. Loose cords placed into a bag can be just as bad as those Christmas lights which always end up in one giant knot. This fancy product can allow dad to have access to most (if not all) of the chargers which he will need in a creative little switchblade look as well as being small and compact to be sure not to take up too much room – who knows leaves it more space for souvenirs for you right? This baby retails for $18, and can be found here.


Growing up your dad is always a superhero; the one who can chase away monsters, kill bugs, can lift you up higher than anyone. Why not stroke his ego a little more with this superhero suit bag – after all, it’s probably been awhile since you’ve told him he was your superhero. It is sold in British Pounds, but with the exchange it is $43 and can be found here.



On the more practical side, there is nothing fun about overweight luggage charges. If you are not careful, sometimes you will feel like it would be easier to sell your kidney than to pay those charges. This useful little contraption can help your dad save his kidney, and keep the weight of his luggage down. It is a portable scale – for your luggage! It is sold on Amazon for $25.99 and you can find it here.



A PiFi – a personal WiFi hotzone. The PiFi products and services allow you to save between 55% and 90% on mobile roaming charges. Whether you’re going away on vacation, work trip, visiting some family back home, or even arriving to your new country of residence, PiFi offers you the best solution – at the best price.  With the PiFi device, you can create your personal Wi-Fi hotzone and share it with up to 9 users. So if you are travelling with companions, you’re only paying for one connection for everyone! This costs you $99.95 which will lead you to hundreds of dollars of savings, and it can be found here.



Noise cancelling headphones. The idea of these had to have come from a frequent flyer who is stuck on a plane with loud takers, screaming babies, or just someone who wants some ‘peace and quiet’ to listen to their own music. The ones below are ‘Beats by Dre’ which retail for $189-$329, but you can definitely find a pair which is a little less expensive. Here is where you can find the ones below.



Maps. People love maps. Travellers love maps. There are a few different options here which are all unique and amazing in their own given way.
First being a world map laid out as subway map. Major cities are the ‘stops’ on the subway. This will only set you back $24.80 and can be found here.
Second being a typography world map. Each country is spelled out in eye attracting colours – it would be a show stopper hanging up on a wall. It is definitely different than the typical world map you see. The cost of this map is $36.99 and can be found here.
Thirdly being a ‘scratch off’ map. It is similar to the BINGO scratch ticket you can purchase for $3. The difference is that dad can scratch off all the countries which he goes/has gone too. There is also the option to get the scratch off map just for certain countries for a much more micro view. This map is $36.96 and you can find it here.
Lastly is something known as string art. Yes, like the string art which was big in the 1970s, but with a modern twist. You can find an abundance of these maps on Etsy ranging in price. The one featured below is $61.32 and can be found here.







The last idea we have for dad is a book by Blurb. Dad can go onto the website, upload his photos and within a few days a beautiful hard cover book with all of his travel pictures will be in there. It would make a great coffee table book! These start at $12.00 and you can find it here.
