5 Cool Travel Gifts For Dad Under $60

This year, we need to break out of the mold of the same old, trite gift giving that has plagued Father’s Day for decades. You are better than that and your dad deserves more than a tie, a bottle of cologne or a barbecue utensil set. You don’t have to spend a fortune on him, either. Here are a couple of great travel gift ideas to start you in the right direction.

Ibagbar Men's Khaki Vintage Cotton Canvas Shoulder Outdoor Trekking Rucksack 

Amazon Price: $55.99

Every dad needs to look good while he is traveling and it starts with a carry-on that makes a statement. Give him a bag that not only looks great but is also convenient as well. Made of cotton canvas, Ibagbar’s bag can be carried by hand, by shoulder strap or worn as a back pack. The dimensions are well within the carry-on limits at 6.7 x 11.8 x 18.5 inches.

Able Planet NC200B Active Noise Canceling Headphones

Sonic Electronix Price: $19.99

There is nothing better than being able to drown out all of the people on a crowded plane as well as the plane noise as well. Noise cancelation is getting cheaper by the minute and these headphones have recently gone on sale down to less than $20. They don’t skimp on the features with active noise canceling, fully detachable cords, ear covers and foldable design for comfort and convenience.

The Travel Card

Travel Card Charger Price: $29.99

Our friends and travel blog contributors Nick and Dariece from Notes from the Goats found these and we couldn’t be more stoked to give our dads one. This charger works with Android or iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, and 6 plus devices and gives you five extra hours of talk time. It is also small enough to fit right in your wallet, cord and all! Like other stick chargers, you can charge the Travel Card in any USB jack.

Harry’s Father’s Day Shave Set

Harry’s Price: $40.00

If you are finding the need to go a little more traditional with your gift to dad, why not a cool new shaving set?  Harry’s father’s day set gives you a Winston Razor Handle, stand, one shave cream, three additional  German-Engineered Blade Cartridges and a travel blade cover. For an extra $10 you can even have the handle of the razor engraved with your dad’s initials. If shaving cream isn’t your thing, you can order the same set with foaming gel instead.

Fire TV Stick

Amazon Price: $34.00

Ever since Google Chromecast came out a couple years ago, I have been touting these sticks as the must-have travel item. The Amazon Fire Stick takes the Chromecast to the next level with a remote control, four times the storage and two times the memory. There are also upgrades like a voice control remote which allows you to just say what you want to watch and it comes up on the screen, as well as a game controller so that you can play video games as well.

Those are a few ideas to get that last minute Father’s Day gift for the guy who helped raise you to be the person that you are. Forgo the tie and cologne this year and get something really nice that won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Happy Father’s Day!
