Father’s Day Travel Gifts

Father's Day Travel Gifts

I love our families. Sometimes, I think about all of the differences between our families, but then I remember all of the things, the important things (the value of family and our love of travel to name a couple), that our families have in common. The importance and priority both my husband’s and my family place on travel is the one of the ties that bind and we hope to pass this love along to our children as well.  As such, it is time to start thinking about the perfect Father’s Day gifts for the three traveling dads in my life. Here are some of the top contenders… (as an aside, none of the three fathers on my list of trekkers but I’ve included a couple of suggestions just in case yours are ;-)).

I do not like February. Despite it being my birthday month and housing Valentine’s Day, it is just not my month. Last year, I was determined to make it my month, went out for a run, and returned with a broken jaw. So, March wasn’t really my month either. I’m on to a new strategy for this February. Lay low. While I’m “laying low”, I’ve had some time to come up with a Valentine’s Day wish list for the traveler in your life/me.

Moment Lenses and Case– I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve wanted to bring our nice camera along on a trip, only to not have room to pack it or not want to lug it around or been in fear that it would knock one of the kids out while they were hanging on me because they needed to be carried. Problem solved with these lenses and case that fit right on to your phone. Genius.

Ebags Packing Cubes– Love these, Need these. Don’t you love it when you think you’ve gotten a great deal on a flight only to find out that each of your bags is going to be an additional $25 each way upon check in? Enter the ebag packing cubes. Now, we can pack one big suitcase but still have some separation of clothes.

Little Passports– Want to include your little ones in Valentine’s Day and your travels? This subscription looks super fun and a great way to learn about the world. You can order based on age or product (e.g., Early Explorers, USA Edition, World Edition).

Okay this is an oldie but goodie- but less expensive- yay! Need some organization in your life? Check out this Travel Cord Roll. 

Hey you! Yeah, you. The one with the sparkle in your eyes. This one is for you. Make your trip even more fun with these Anywhere Travel Guide cards.

Looking for some wall art for the Traveler in your life? I love this print you can easily get from BonsoirStudio on Etsy.

True there isn’t any chocolate or lingerie on this list, but I’m willing to bet that the traveler in your life will still be thrilled. (Keep in mind- this is my wish list, so I haven’t tried nor am I endorsing the products, but they still look pretty awesome, right?!?)

Gift Guide for the Traveler in Your Life, Part II

Welcome Back! Well, there is officially snow, and it is officially sticking to the ground, which signals the end to our lovely fall days but also the excitement that surrounds the holiday season. Now, where did we leave off?

Oh, yes, my great love of Mark and Graham. I just can’t get enough of their classy, functional, and fun travel selection. No one likes to lose their luggage and no one likes scrambling to fill out the paper tags that the airlines provide, so some durable and classic tags would be a welcome gift under the tree this year.

Another idea for the tech-loving traveler in your life is an External Power Bank for charging smartphones and tablets. That champagne gold color seems like a stylish bonus, too.

And, also, back to Klean Kanteen. The canteen I mentioned in the previous post works well for both coffee and ice water, but sometimes I just need to have both on hand. Therein, comes this bottle. Have I mentioned that I also really like Klean Kanteen’s customer service? One of the sports caps we owned needed to be repaired, and they readily and quickly sent a replacement.

A packable puffer coat is another must for me. I have taken a similar coat with me on several trips, and it has treated me well. Now, I wouldn’t hike through Antarctica in it, but it does keep me quite warm. It takes up very little space in my suitcase but is also just as easy to wear/take off/manage on an airplane. Even if I was leaving on a cold and blustery February morning to go to a warm, tropical island, I would probably still wear the coat to the airport. It’s just that easy to have along for the trip. Now, if only all travel companions were that low maintenance.

A little class. A little sass. And a whole lot of functionality. This small travel jewelry case is just the thing that has been missing from my luggage.

And that’s a wrap! (Yes, I sure did do that on purpose!)
