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 ;-)).
Patagonia Text Logo – For the eco-friendly traveling dad, this classic T is unique as it is made from 100% recycled fabric.
Patagonia Tech Web Belt– This belt pulls double duty. Not only does it keep its hold, it also can serve as a bottle opener at the end of a long day hiking treacherous cliffs or exploring a new city (or even if you are just going across town for a BBQ).
Patagonia Men’s Stretch Wavefarer Walk Shorts– Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, these shorts for the adventuring dad in your life have 50+ UPF protection, are water repellant, and are also fast drying. (Also good for if you have toddlers and are just trying to eat a meal.)
Zion Jacket by Prana- Whether your Dad is an adventurer or city explorer, this jacket will be a great fit. It is water resistant, which will keep him dry and any possible stains from sinking in too deep.
On the Go Coffee Press (Uncommon Goods)- Again, this gift is perfect for heading out on the trails or heading to a museum. This is a must buy for my French press-loving guy who is often on the go.
Initial Ball Cap– Every traveler can use extra hats. These classic hats from Mark and Graham are not only stylish but perhaps are also reminiscent of ballparks visited on your travels (’tis the season).
Terminal 1 Carry On (Mark and Graham)- Last but not least, what would a travel gift list be without a suitcase? We are becoming increasingly irritated by all of the extra costs with airline travel. This classy, monogrammed (optional) carry on is a nice option for long weekends or wardrobe capsule travel.
Already have your Father’s Day gifts bought? Good job! And, no problem, you can always save these for birthdays, holiday gifts, etc. Here’s the pin:
