We’ve rounded up 12 of our favorite ideas for the daddios out there who have an incurable case of wanderlust.
1: Portable Hammock
For the guys in your life who love to go camping or like to just simply hang out in the great oudoors, this portable hammock is an amazing gift. It's easy to set up and will provide your dude with hours of relaxation.
2: Acousticsheep Sleep Headphones
If your guy is addicted to listening to music, podcasts or audio books as he drifts off to sleep, these headphones are a must. Designed to allow you to be comfortable and keep your headphones out of the way, it’s the perfect solution for the dude who always seems to be drifting off to sleep with his headphones on.
3: Bluesmart Carry-On Smart Suitcase
This "smart" suitcase is worth a splurge for the dad in your life who is constantly on the go. There's a built-in digital scale, USB chargers, a digital lock, and 3G and GPS coverage. Plus, the whole shebang can be controlled by an app on your guy’s phone. And no more lost luggage; if your dude loses his suitcase, he can easily find it by simply tracking it with his app.
4: Portable Charger + Battery Pack
Now that many of us have multiple smart devices, it’s much more of a challenge to keep everything charged and ready to go when we’re on a trip. If you have a dad on your gift list who fits this description, a portable battery pack might be the perfect gift.
5: Canon PowerShot G9X
For the guy in your life who’s not quite ready to take on a bulky DSLR, this chic camera is a fantastic option. While it doesn’t quite fit in a pocket, it’s still sleek enough to easily fit into a small bag. And best of all, it has built in wifi, so your guy can easily transfer pics from his camera to his phone or computer on the go.
6: Packing Cubes
Packing cubes are one of those travel necessities that you don’t realize you need until you try them. They’re a gamechanger for anyone who travels a lot and favors using carry-on luggage. You can easily keep your items organized and accessible, and the cubes help to reduce the space your clothing and toiletries take up in your bag.
7: Parabo Press Gift Card

If you have a dad on your list who loves to document his adventures, a Parabo Press gift card could be the perfect solution. The site offers a number of different options for your photos, including books, larger engineer prints and even newsprints. And you can easily upload your snaps from your computer or a mobile device.
8: Digital Luggage Scale
via Bed Bath & Beyond
With all of the additional fees airlines have been instituting, you definitely want to make sure you’re never going over the maximum luggage weight. But it’s difficult to figure out without the proper tools. Enter: the digital luggage scale. This handy gadget will allow you to easily weigh your luggage so there are never any unexpected surprises (or fees!) at the airport.
9: Hoodie Pillow

A neck pillow is always a must-have on long flight, but this one really takes it to the next level. This comfy neck pillow will allow your guy to catch some extra shuteye on his flight by blocking out the light and providing a bit of extra privacy.
10: Travel Wine Bag
Airport liquid restrictions have thrown a real wrench into the travel experience for wine lovers. Gone are the days when you could bring a few choice bottles of wine back on the plane with you. However, these travel wine bags are the best way around that.
11: Car Mount for Phones
If your guy is often in a rental car in a strange city or country, they’re likely using their phone as a navigation tool. This portable mount would really be an ideal gift, as it allows you to easily mount any smartphone in the air conditioning vents of any make or model car.
12: Leather Earbuds Cord Holder
There’s nothing more annoying than opening up your bag and finding that your earbuds are in a tangled mess. This simple leather cord holder is a great solution for avoiding that. And if your guy has several pairs (one in the car, one for his travel bag, etc.), you might want to consider giving him a few.
Give Dad the gift he ALWAYS needs but never has on hand...
