Father’s day is just around the corner but if you don't have a gift for dear old dad yet, don't sweat it. He probably just wants to hear how much you love him.
But if you've got some change to spare-- and your dad is always on the go-- you're in luck. These gifts are great for men who are either always on the go with the kids, seek adventure, or just happen to be a jet setting pro. Make your travel-minded dad feel extra special this year.
1) Travel Fleece Throw Blanket
After that red eye flight home, a jet-lagged dad can cuddle up in this incredibly comfy fleece blanket that will remind him of his latest jaunts around the world. The fleece, called “travel” is machine washable and comes in four different sizes. Made in the USA by KESS InHouse by Catherine Holcombe.
2) FRENDS Taylor Headphones
Who said dads were dorky? Your father will be hippest guy on the road while listening to some jams on his next flight thanks to these sleek headphones from FRENDS. The Taylor Gunmetal and Rose Gold set has a three-button microphone with volume, phone and music controls. The travel-friendly design allows it to easily collapse into a zip-up carrying case. Caps are removable and can be swapped out to give dad a fresh look each trip. Bonus: they are easy to clean with a quick wipe.
3) Jack Black PureScience Jet Set Traveler
Traveling can take a toll on the skin. This handy skincare kit will give dad’s skin some relief when away from home. The newly updated Jet Set Traveler kit is TSA-approved. It comes with a daily cleanser, shave lather and moisturizer with SPF protection-- all made with certified organic ingredients.
4) Airfree T800
With this portable air sanitizer, dad will be able to breath easy on that next business trip. This Airfree device helps get hotel room air clean by destroying microbiological contaminations. How it works: Airfree draws in air from the room, heats it, and instantly sterilizes it. The purified air is then returned to the room.
5) Ergobaby Four Position 360 Cool Air Carrier
Want to ditch the stroller on that next sightseeing trip? This baby carrier by Ergobaby is designed for an active dad who wants his baby close and comfortable. The mesh fabric helps keep baby cooler longer and is ideal for summer months. It can be used in four carry positions. Bonus: it's easy to pack up in a suitcase.
6) Elements 28" Carry-On Duffel by Carhartt
This durable duffel is made to withstand harsh conditions. The bag is light and built with nylon fabric and coated with weather resistant polymer. Best for the traveling dad who needs a reliable carry-on all year long.
7) Motorola Talkabout T600
With these two-way radios, dad can stay in touch with the kiddos on that next outdoor family expedition this summer. These powerful radios can transmit up to 35 miles in ideal conditions and also deliver NOAA weather updates and alerts. Another perk: the handheld radios are waterproof and float (so no big deal if one falls in the lake while fishing). Rechargeable batteries with cable charging adaptor and dual micro-USB connectors included.
