WKND PICK: Last Minute (Travel-Inspired) Father’s Day Gifts

by mccownJune 14, 2013

So, Father’s Day is just around the corner and, if you’re like me, you’re buying your dad’s gift…tomorrow…hopefully…?

If you’re still at a loss for what to get Dear Old Dad, here’s a few travel-inspired gifts that won’t break the bank.

I have been dying for a globe – and my guess is that dads would like this, too:  to sit on his desk and spin when he’s bored, or daydream (do dads daydream?) about where to travel next.

I like this globe because it’s more muted than other globes I’ve seen, and the off-white ocean color seems a bit more Dad-ish than a bright blue.  I’ve seen really nice globes on sites like One King’s Lane pretty often, too, so keep your eyes peeled.

Ship this globe straight to Dad from Amazon. It’s not too late for overnight shipping! $49.95

 

 

This gift is for a dad on the go. I received a passport holder as a gift and love it — I use the pockets in the front and back flaps to keep old ticket stubs, luggage match tags, etc.

Pick up this cognac case for only $48 from Johnston & Murphy.

I actually gave these luggage tags to my dad for Christmas this past year, at his own request, so it’s officially Dad-Approved. Great quality and not too big…or too small.

A set of 3 is just $39 from Orvis with free engraving!

And finally, for those of us with nerdy dads, how about a book on travel? Even better if you know the place he wants to travel next. For my Dad, it’s the Galapagos Islands.

This book couples the history of the islands with a travel guide, perfect for a Dad who’s researching for his next trip. What a thoughtful gift!

Order it from Amazon for only $19.45 (this book isn't available in hardback).
