Father’s Day Ideas for a Dad that Loves to Travel

5 Fathers Day Ideas for a Dad that loves to Travel

So it’s that time of year that I start to panic about what I’m going to buy my hubby for Fathers Day (in 2024 Fathers Day is Sunday 16th June).

He’s at the age (an old age according to the girls) that means he pretty much has everything that he wants or really needs. He is however just as obsessed with travel as I am, so a travel related gift is always a good idea.

Here are some awesome Father’s Day Ideas for Dad’s that love to travel!

Father's Day

For dads that love to travel a pair of headphones is essential. They can use them to listen to podcasts, audio books, films, music or even work related tasks if they are travelling for work. These over ear headphones are the EDIFIER WH700NB’s, they are noise cancelling, wireless, bluetooth enabled headphones and they have a whopping 68 hour battery life making them perfect for travelling when charging may be difficult. They are foldable and lightweight too, so no need to worry about fitting them in your hand luggage either. They are available in four colours so you are bound to find the perfect pair for your Dad this Father’s Day. 

RRP £49.99 on Amazon 


If your dad prefers in ear headphones then the MIXX SOLO 2 are the ones for him. These head phones come in a choice of capsule, hybrid or silicon fit with four colour options including black, white, champagne and blue metal. They offer 18 hours of playtime, hands-free calling, changeable ear cushions, and touch sensor controls not to mention they are stylish and great for travelling too.

Wireless Speaker


For those moments when Dad is away from home, be it on a beach, by a pool, or in a hotel working away and he wants to listen to his music the RED5 Wireless Orb speaker is great. It makes music on the go really easy as it can either connect to your phone or laptop to play his favourite songs or can be used as a stand alone item with the FM radio function. It has a 3 hour battery life and can be charged via a USB and even has a colour changing LED light to brighten thigs up when using in the dark.

Another option, one that is better suited for UK travel or for using when relaxing at home or in the garden as it is slightly bigger is the TRIBIT XSound Plus 2. This incredible wireless speaker has 24 hours playtime, is IPX7 waterproof, offers stereo pairing and can even be used for hands free calling too. If your dad likes to travel or hang out with friends and family then this is the speaker for him as it has party mode which, once activated, can be used to double the volume to get the party going!

The SJCAM 300 is perfect for capturing everything from family fun to fast paced sporting moments and even underwater activity. It can be used as a hand held camera or hands free either worn as a bodycam or attached to a mount, it’s water resistant up to 30 meters and records in 4K and even allows you to live stream too.

Travelling abroad can be a nightmare when it comes to charging all your electronics, especially if you forget to take the correct adapters but the Power Plug Pro by Reflex Active makes it so much easier.

A great Father’s Day gift that will make travelling so much easier.

It is stylish, lightweight and made from breathable, stretchy material making it easy to move, both on and off the court.

When it comes to men they don’t seem to need to be somewhere hot to wear shorts, the slightest bit of sunshine, or even just the fact it’s not raining, is enough for them to get their legs out, so why not treat dad to a  new pair of shorts. We recommend these K-Swiss hypercourt shorts that have a 4-way density stretch for a comfortable fit along with deep pockets and a drawstring waist band.

RRP £40 from Tennis HQ

For the Dads that like to travel in style and find themselves at lots of events, be that work or pleasure, then maybe a pair of JJ Suspenders is the gift for them. These impressive suspenders are created using unique fabrics, high-quality detailing, and real leather and come in a variety of colours and style with something for every occasion.

RRP from $59 from JJ Suspenders


Sleep Mask

How about a padded silk eye pillow from Drowsy? It gives the wearer a luxurious feeling, so smooth and soft that you instantly want to close your eyes and sleep. It would be perfect for those Dads that need to get some sleep on the plane or for when the jet lag hits and they need a day time nap to catch up on sleep as it is a full light blocking sleep mask. It also comes in a lovely gift box.

RRP £69 from Drowsy Sleep Co

Why not team the Drowsy sleep mask with a bottle of the sleep S.O.S pillow spray, the award winning night ritual pillow spray that has been formulated using a powerful blend of natural botanical oils to help you prepare for a glorious night’s sleep. Just spray it on your pillow and breath in the relaxing scent as you drift off to sleep.

When all the travelling is done, sitting down in their favourite spot with their favourite drink and relaxing is a must. If beer happens to be your Dads favourite tipple then one of these craft beer sets, The Staying Inn, is perfect.
