Quick! What word comes to mind when it comes to describing your dad’s travel style? Adventurous? Sentimental? Stoic? Sporty? Playful? Outdoorsy? Intellectual? Sophisticated?
No matter what type of traveller your old man is, this gift guide has you covered whether he's the first to say “yes” to white-water rafting, or heads straight from the plane to the first available beach chair.
If you’re keeping up on your trivia, you know that Father’s Day was established in 1910 by Arkansas native Sonora Dodd. It only seemed fair to have a day for dads after Mother’s Day proved to be such a hit. It took about 20 years to really catch up, then the makers of ties, tacky mugs and slippers got behind the idea, having recognized the potential uptick in the sales.
Today, it’s still a day to give kudos to dad. Thank him for teaching you how to use a power drill and to tie your shoelaces and for not telling mom about that one time you came home drunk at 4 a.m.
With that in mind, for big spenders and small, these gifts tell dad he’s pretty awesome and nurture his love of travel.
