Travel Theme Guy Gifts Inspired by Family Trips

Daddies are often the unsung heroes working behind the scenes, far less appreciated by their children than they truly deserve. Fatherhood, of course isn't a one-day-a-year job. So, I've put together this gift guide of ideas perfect for giving to the dad or dad figure in your life, not only on Father's Day, but all year long for his birthday or even "just because" to show how much you love him. Read on for some good travel-themed gift ideas curated for that special Daddy no matter what his age.

Modern Hawaiian Mens Shirt

Aloha California Cowboy Summer Shirt

The High Water Tropic Shirt is the unlined version of California Cowboy's signature High Water style. Here, my hubbie wears the Nightlife Palm Crockett Blue print. The all-new design has been reinvented as a classic short-sleeve Hawaiian shirt with some clever added perks modern men will appreciate. 

What sets this apart from all the other men's tropical-inspired shirts out there is that this one features contemporary, graphic custom-designed prints with a retro vibe, a front loop for sunglasses, pockets specifically for a smart phone and beverage, and other thoughtful details. As a bonus, like all California Cowboy shirts, this style also comes with a flat brass bottle opener as well as a drink holder which can be used to hold a soda can or beer bottle. From California Cowboy, $115

Around the World Spicy Nuts

Around the World Spicy Nuts Sampler

From Sugar Plum mother-and-son Pennsylvania bakery and kitchen comes this delectable, spicy and savory manly gift of exotic peanuts which will take his taste buds to five ports-0f-call around the world. Just think, without even leaving the house, your father can escape on a culinary adventure to far away places like the jungles of Africa, islands of the Caribbean, Thailand, Mexico, or even imagine himself in Marrakech, Morocco. 

Beautifully packaged in a keepsake tin tied with a bow, this gift comes ready to give with generous pouches of five varieties of nuts: African Piri Piri, Caribbean Jerk, Coconut Curry Thai, Mexican Spiced Cocoa, and Moroccan Harissa Lime.  Not only are these crunchy morsels delicious, no passport is required, and they're certified kosher. Another great gift on offer: A Giant Chocolate Heart Pizza Smash, From Sugar Plum

Jim Beam Whiskey Fudge Whisky Coffee Whisky Honey Lotion

The Scottish Grocer Father Kit

Just as thoughtful and adventurous to the mouth is this Father Kit from The Scottish Grocer which will have Dad imagining he's hiking over the velvet green, lush grassy highlands of Scotland on a summer afternoon. 

This true celebration of a gentleman's good taste features a curated trio of made in Scotland gifts: a tin of Jim Beam Bourbon Fudge individually-wrapped candies along with Whisky Flavored Ground Coffee and a full-size bottle of Highland Soap Company Whisky & Honey Lotion. Fun Fact: What's the difference between Whisky and Whiskey? The former relates to grain spirits distilled in Scotland, the latter refers to similar products made in Ireland or the USA.  From The Scottish Grocer, $38.39

Luli Bebe Monaco Faux Leather Diaper Bag

The Monaco Diaper Bag

For the millennial or Gen Z new daddy or father-to-be, this Monaco Diaper Bag by Luli Bebé is just the thing for both enjoying day trips with kids and for traveling long distances for family vacations. Classically designed with an elegant tailored unisex look which dad and mom can use interchangeably, this vegan faux leather bag sports a generous amount of well-placed accessible storage pockets inside and outside to stow his smartphone as well as to carry everything he needs for his baby and/or toddler to be the best Dad ever. 

What's more is all the ways he can carry this diaper bag, choosing to wear it as a back pack or if he prefers, to attach it to his child's stroller. Either way, he'll have both hands free to tend to the baby or hold the hand of his on-the-move toddler. The Monaco with changing mat included ($159) is available in Ebony Black, Pearl White, and Stone Grey, to Pastel Pink, Latte Brown, Latte, and Caramel Brown. Available from  Luli Bebé, $159

Roll On Carry On Luggage Eco Friendly

Solo Roll-on Eco Friendly Travel Bag

Whether traveling for work on leisure post-pandemic, hopefully soon, every guy needs a good carryon roller bag for his jet set lifestyle. The Solo New York Re:Treat Carry On Rolling Bag is not only functional, lightweight, and stylish it is made with eco-friendly heather gray material repurposed from recycled PET bottles. 

Well-designed with ample interior/exterior storage pockets and easy to handle with compact telescoping handle  -- it's ideal to keep him organized on the go. When giving the 22-inch Solo Re:Treat Rolling Bag as a gift, here's an idea to make it even more special. Why not add a baggage tag with a handwritten note, surprising him with an all expenses paid trip to an exotic and beautiful place he's always wanted to go?

More Travel-Theme Gift Ideas for Dads

I wish I'd shown more gratitude to my own Daddy before he passed away some years ago. In fact, my inspiration for this year's father's gift roundup comes directly from childhood memories of my Dad planning amazing family road trip vacations. He's also the one who taught me to drive -- and after my parents became empty nesters -- they loved traveling abroad. No doubt wanderlust is in my DNA and I've passed that passion for travel, adventure and the open road on to my own kids. 

There's no better time than now to show the dad in your life some love and appreciation for all he's done for you. Need more inspiration? Check MBE's other year-round travel-themed gift picks for guys below.
