10 Father's Day Gift Ideas For The Traveling Dad

Do you know a dad who does a lot of traveling? Check out this post for 10 great gift ideas for the traveling dad in your life.

If your dad travels in his RV, this post, 10 Items You Should Have On Your RV Camping List, will give you a few more ideas.

We have been doing a lot of traveling since we retired and noticed that we need things we never needed before like a number of portable items. Also, we added an RV as one our traveling modes a couple of years ago and then needed even more things like comfortable camping chairs. We can thank our son and daughter-in-law for that gift.

Our kids always keep in mind that they have a traveling dad now when they are considering gifts to buy Soko for Father's Day. So for the benefit of my kids, and all kids and families with a traveling dad, this helpful list gives you 10 great gift ideas!

1. Atomi 150W Car Power Inverter

This power strip has 2 AC 110V Outlets, 2 USB-C Ports and 2 Smart Charge USB Ports so that Dad can power up all his devices as he drives to his destination. This will especially come in handy when Dad is taking the whole family with him to that destination.

2. Reversible Belt

Dad will not have to pack both his black belt and his tan belt. With this belt, dad will only have to remember to pack one belt and be ready to match any outfit no matter what color he is wearing.

3. Personalized Toiletry Bag

If you dad travels a lot, he might be needing a new toiletry bag. What makes this one special is that it can be personalized. Something that can be personalized always makes a great gift!

4. Muggo 2.0

This self-heating, temperature control coffee travel mug comes with a leak-proof top and 3 hour battery life. Great for all those dads who enjoy having coffee when they are on the road. Even greater is that they can enjoy their coffee hot until the last drop.

5. Coffee Gift Cards

A gift card to Dad's favorite coffee shop comes in handy for the dad who is traveling on the road or the dad who is at the airport waiting to board a plane and needs a little pick-me-up.

6. Portable WaterPik

This convenient waterpik is small enough to fit in dad's toiletry bag and is perfect for the dad who likes to use one every day. We keep one in our RV and really like how portable it is and how easy it is to use.

7. Power Bank for IPhone

A power bank is a great gift for the dad who is on an outdoor adventure and not able to get to a phone charger for hours at a time. This one is fantastic for the ability to attach it right to your phone. It also comes in a 2 pack so that dad can always have a freshly charged power bank to use.

8. Hammer + Axe Insulated Slim Beverage Suitcase

Beach vacationing dads will love carrying his beverages in this light-weight cooler. No more lugging his heavy one as he trudges through the sand. An added bonus is that the case also has cup holders when dad needs to put his drink down and would rather not put it in the sand.

9. Anti-theft Back Pack

This is a great gift for the sight-seeing dad who finds himself in a big crowd and doesn't want to worry about being pick-pocketed while he is enjoying the sights. Soko likes his Travelon bag a lot. It is slash proof and he feels secure knowing there are clasps on the ends of each zipper that makes it very hard, if not impossible, for a thief to get into his bag. 

10. My Property ID Registry security system.

This kit contains everything your dad needs to keep his valuables safe while he's traveling with them.  We especially like having the warning sign on our RV to deter potential thieves from breaking in when we are out sightseeing. You can read more about this great product here.

Hope you found your dad's gift in our list of 10 Father's Day gift ideas for your traveling dad! Wishing all dads a Happy Father's Day and safe travels!
