Gifts for Dads and Grads: Outdoorsy Traveler Edition

For all the nature-loving outdoor enthusiasts you’re shopping for this graduation and Father’s Day season, let this list be your guide.

Whether Dad is a big nature guy, loves camping and fishing, or you’re honoring the graduates in the family with some accessories to pair with their inevitable summer wanderlust, check out some versatile and functional accessories travelers can use anywhere, even off the grid.

YETI Hopper Sidekick

For all the tubing, kayaking, rafting, camping and outdoor-you-name-it, the YETI Hopper Sidekick is just that — your new sidekick. It wears like a fanny pack, but acts like a cooler. Travelers can enjoy cold drinks on the go, safe from water and heat creeping in and the chilled temperatures sneaking out. Add on with a matching YETI ice pack that fits perfectly along the seam, and belt hook and you’re ready for adventure and refreshments.

Gift your adventurer with a journal they can use to document their time on the road or abroad. For recent graduates hitting the open road toward their new career or adventure, a journal is a great gift. Having a journal for a long hiking expedition or epic journey without WiFi is a great way to remember to take note of all the stories along the way for a personal keepsake, or to share with someone when they get home. Go with a classic leather-bound notebook or something a little more durable and waterproof.

Spotify Premuim

A little less tangible, but oh, so useful, a Premium Spotify account is something you can gift for friends, family and yourself. The premium service works without WiFi, so users can go offline and still listen to all their favorite music, podcasts and audiobooks. Users can also download their favorite songs, make playlists to remember home and even share playlists with friends and family back at home, so you can listen to the same music, together, even when hundreds of miles apart.

Bags by Eagle Creek

Whether an aspiring travel adventurer or already a world traveler, durable gear is a gamechanger. Shop sustainably made carry-ons, backpacks and heavy-duty luggage pieces from Eagle Creek for that completely functional, but thoughtful, gift for the outdoor enthusiasts in your life.

Let these gifts inspire the travelers in your family or make their already planned trip all the more exciting with a few new accessories and thoughtful add-ons.
