The 11 Best Father's Day Gifts for the Traveler Dad!
This fleece travel set is perfect for those overnight flights or just to get a little rest while traveling. The set includes an inflatable pillow, blanket, eye mask, and ear plugs, and the deflated pillow converts into a zippered carry case with a strap that attaches onto your luggage handles.
I was sent a Weekend Garment/Duffle bag to try out and was amazed at how much it could hold. Unzipped, it looks like a standard garment bag with some extras. Zipped, it becomes an easier-to-carry duffel bag, but the design allows it to hold so much more. It fits up to 4 dress shirts and 2 pairs of pants or 2 full suits in the garment section. Once you zip it up, it can hold multiple days worth of clothes and accessories. The bag features shoe pockets that fit up to a men's size 13, three internal zippered pockets, and one zippered pocket on the outside. It is airline carry-on compliant, so for short trips, this will be the only bag he needs.
For the guy (or gal) who hates to carry bags, this jacket is the ultimate carry-on. It is waterproof, windproof, and breathable, and has detachable sleeves to transform it into a vest. With 25 pockets, some large enough for a tablet or 12" laptop, he can carry it all with no bulges or sagging. It has 2 clear touch sensitive pockets for smartphone use while inside the pocket (handy if you get caught in the rain), a concealed hood, an earphone routing system, retractable reel for your keys, elastic band for a drink, and a pickpocket-proof design. What more could you ask for?!
HoMedics Sound Spa Relaxation Machine with 6 Nature Sounds
For the traveler who needs to filter out outside noises. I actually have this exact same machine, which I bought while on a trip. It is perfect! The sound settings include White Noise, Thunder, Ocean, Rain, Summer Night and Brook (I love the rain setting), it has a volume control, auto-off timer, and it can be run on batteries or the included AC adapter. It's small enough to fit in your luggage without taking up a lot of room. I don't travel without it!
For the organized dad. These cubes can help him keep his luggage organized and neat for those longer trips. This set comes with 3 cubes and a bonus shoe bag so he can keep his clothes separate from his toiletries and electronics but still see everything at a glance through the mesh.
Micro SD Card Covert Coin (US Quarter)Now this last one is just plain cool. When traveling overseas, you hear advice to scan in all of your passport pages, credit cards, and ID just in case they're stolen, but what if your laptop is also stolen? Here is a handy idea: scan your sensitive documents and cards and save them to a Micro SD card. You can then hide it inside this hollowed-out real US Quarter for safe keeping in your pocket! They can be handled normally and won't come open without the opening device. It comes as small as a US nickel and as large as a US dollar coin. Also available in an Australian 20. Would make such a unique gift!
