Gift Ideas for the Travelling Dad

With Father’s Day fast approaching, the team has put together a gift guide to make last minute shopping easier.  Whether your dad travels often for work, is planning a family vacation, or simply loves the excitement of a voyage, these gifts will help to show your appreciation.

From informative guides to fictional novels to keep him occupied while on the plane, Chapters/Indigo has many interesting reads to satisfy a travel bookworm.  We’ve chosen “Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 Of The World’s Greatest Trips” by National Geographic as the perfect coffee table book for leisurely reading. ($33, Chapters/Indigo)

For business-related travelling, a versatile and spacious bag is needed to store documents and electronics.  This duffel bag with many compartments, a zipper closure, and adjustable straps will be useful for storing essentials. ($299, Danier Leather)



Travel pillows can make long rides a lot more comfortable.  For sports fans, neck pillows printed with dad’s favourite team logo and colours are the perfect gift. ($24.48,


For the nature-lover, camping trips are reminiscent of childhood memories.  A 6-person tent leaves enough space for fun and games with the whole family. ($68, Ozark Trail 13’x10’ Winisk 6 Person Family Dome Tent, Walmart)

To capture precious moments on any vacation, a camera is key.  With many options ranging in price and features, we’ve chosen the Olympus 12MP Waterproof Digital Camera to photograph your adventures and sightseeing excursions. (Future Shop, $329.99)


For something more personalized to decorate a desktop, this levitating globe may be just the thing.  The globe rests in the air using magnetic energy, and it even has space for a special, engraved message. (, $49.99)

How about spending some quality time together instead and plan a day trip with dad?
