Father’s Day is coming, and you know what that means — time to figure out what to get the favorite man in your life, who somehow never seems to want anything at all. Skip the tie this year and go with something more in line with his love for travel. These options might just fit the bill.


A New Travel Bag

Not exactly the most budget-friendly option, but it’ll definitely earn you kid or spouse of the year. This classic leather travel set includes an overnighter, toiletry pouch, external compartments to keep dirty and clean clothes separate and an adjustable shoulder strap with side pockets for on-the-go must-haves. You can even get it monogrammed with his initials and rush delivered in a few days. At $489, this bag is an investment that’ll last him many trips to come.


But What If My Dad Likes Ties?

But, you say, I always get my dad/husband a tie, because he actually likes ties! Well, then keep it interesting, at least, with a travel-themed tie from Uncommon Goods. At $28, this Principles of Flight tie is a fun choice for any aviation geek.


A Testament to Everywhere He’s Ever Been

Another Uncommon Goods product every traveler would love to receive: the scratch-able map. But this version, with its rugged feel and gold foil gives it a more sophisticated style that’ll look right at home in your dad or husband’s corporate or home office.


A Small Step Down from the Travel Bag

If you can’t quite make the travel bag fit into your budget (we don’t blame you), then why not go for a luggage accessory that still says he’s a step above the rest of the riffraff standing at the luggage carousel? This elk leather luggage tag comes in at $50 at Nordstrom.


For the Boozy Dad

For the dad who just likes a stiff drink or two after a stressful travel day, give him a D.I.Y. cocktail kit he can take on the go, airplanes included. However, skip those smaller aluminum tins of kitschy cocktail mixers and go for this leather pouch instead, which comes with refillable bottles he can use again and again to create his own minibar on the go, whatever his personal preferred poison might be.

Family Cross-Country Skiing in Vermont

Family travelers looking for outdoor sports in winter but feeling discouraged by the increasing ticket prices at mountain ski resorts can find a more economical way to enjoy the snow in Vermont.
