With Father's Day fast approaching, you may still be looking for the perfect gift. If the dad in your life is a traveler, I've scoped out some of the best (and coolest) gifts to make his life a little easier. If you're still agonizing over the perfect gift for the traveler dad in your life, check out these awesome products and gadgets and get him the perfect gift!

The 11 Best Father's Day Gifts for the Traveler Dad!

1. Lewis N. Clark Ultimate Comfort Set
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. 

2. Poros Leather Charging Briefcase - Apple Lightning
This isn't just a sleek leather briefcase, it's a charger as well. It can charge your iPhone, iPad, or MacBook on the go, so you can travel with your electronics without worrying that they'll die at a crucial moment. The fully integrated charging system will seamlessly power a phone up to six full charges or a tablet twice. Built to hold a 15-inch laptop in the main compartment with a separate sleeve for laptops up to 14-inches. You can find the bag with a Micro USB charging system for Android and PC here.

This wallet is the ultimate in safety when traveling abroad. It holds your passport, cards, and currency, is made of Nappa leather, has RFID blocking to keep skimmers from grabbing your card numbers, and comes with a GPS tracker just in case you lose it or get pickpocketed. Just check the app and you can track the exact location of your wallet. Cool! Check out the regular GPS wallet for domestic travelers here.

4. The New Standard Weekend Bag - Garment/Duffle Hybrid
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.

Very cool. Check out the Weekend Bag Co. website here.

5. AyeGear J25 Transformable Jacket with 25 Pockets
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?!

6. 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!

7. Packing Cubes
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.

8. Travelon Bag Bungee
If you haven't seen these bag bungees yet, they can be a lifesaver, especially if you're juggling multiple bags/jackets. They attach to your rolling luggage handle and you can use them to secure another bag, like a briefcase, or a jacket/coat right to your rolling luggage.

9. Belkin Mini 3-Outlet Swivel Travel Charger with Dual USB Ports
This little gadget acts as a 3-outlet extender, a surge protector for your electronics, and a 2-port USB outlet. Perfect for the guy who needs to plug in his laptop, charge his phone, tablet, and iPod and wants to make sure they're protected.

A must-have for the International traveler, this little gadget is compatible with the outlets in 150 countries and has a USB charger for mobile electronics with built-in surge protection.

11. 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!

I hope you enjoyed this list as much as I did making it, and that it helps you find the perfect gift for the traveling dad in your life!
