Where is the year going? Father’s Day is just around the corner and if you’re looking for a gift for the special man in your life, we’ve got a great round-up of Father’s Day gift ideas for the dad who loves to travel.
Vineyard Vines St. Jean Stripe Sankaty Polo
If Dad loves to look good but doesn’t want to put a lot of time or effort into it, the Sankaty Polo (named after the Sankaty Lighthouse on the eastern end of Nantucket) is just the item to add to his wardrobe. This performance polo is quick-drying and moisture-wicking with a classic, relaxed fit. Best of all, it’s wrinkle-resistant, perfect for travel. Buy it here.
Peter Manning Packable Lightweight Down Jacket
Depending on when and where you’re traveling, you might not need a jacket. But then again, you might … but no one wants to pack a big bulky, heavy coat if they don’t think they’ll need it. This lightweight jacket is just the solution for the traveling man. It has three exterior zip pockets and it is packable into its own pocket, making it nice and compact for travel. Buy it here.
Backbone One Gaming Controller
The Backbone One will turn Dad’s phone into a portable Xbox, PlayStation or Apple Arcade. It works with any iPhone (compatible with the latest iPhones and comes with an adapter for a better experience on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max). It also comes with one year of Backbone+ included, which provides access to exclusive perks and the Backbone app, which Dad can use as a hub for all his games, though the Backbone can be used for gaming without Backbone+. I saw a lot of people using this on some recent flights and it’s the perfect way to pass the time on a flight. Buy it here.
Ricardo Weekender Carry-On Duffel
Surprise Dad with a new duffel bag that’s practical and stylish. Made with a water-resistant fabric exterior, this spacious duffel bag has lots of pockets to keep things organized. It has quilted, padded pockets for a laptop and tablet and a handy strap to slide it on top of a suitcase for easy carrying through the airport. This bag is perfect for a short getaway, whether for business or pleasure. Buy it here.
Flytographer Photo Shoot
Flytographer has extremely talented photographers in destinations around the world and a special family photo shoot makes a great Father’s Day gift.

Nothing beats being nice and organized when you travel. It makes everything feel easier, calmer. Help Dad achieve a bit more zen on the road with a tech organizer that will keep all his tech gadgets, cords, cables, SD cards, hard drives and chargers in one organized, easy-to-find place. This gift is a sure hit and he’ll wonder how he went so long without one of these things! Read more about this tech organizer here and buy it here on Amazon.
Roku Streaming Stick
We’ve written about Roku Streaming Sticks many times before but that’s because they make a great gift and are perfect for travel. With a Roku Streaming Stick on hand, Dad can plug it into his hotel or vacation rental TV and have instant access to all his favorite streaming platforms and accounts. Just remind him to do this when he checks out! Buy it here.
Apple AirPods Pro
If Dad hasn’t treated himself to a pair of Apple AirPods Pro yet, then surprise him with the ultimate travel accessory. He’ll never go anywhere without them again! Buy them here.
And if you do treat Dad to a new pair of wireless earphones like the Apple AirPods Pro, then consider adding an AirFly wireless transmitter that will let him use his wireless/noise-cancelling headphones or AirPods on airplanes (or in gyms) by connecting them to wired headphone jacks using Bluetooth technology. He will love this handy gadget! Buy it here on Amazon.
INIU Portable Phone Charger
Whether your dad is traveling domestically for business, internationally for travel or just heading out to get groceries, a portable charger will always come in handy to have in his carry-on bag or in the car. Read more about this portable charger here or buy it on Amazon here.
Mini Travel Speaker
This awesome little speaker packs a big punch and is a handy gadget to always keep in your bag. It weighs 6.2 ounces and is less than two inches in size. Dad can use it to stream movies, music or podcasts from his smartphone or other audio devices using Bluetooth. Read more about this speaker here or buy it here on Amazon.
