Gifts for the traveling dad
Studies show people who spend their money on experiences instead of things report greater happiness.
That’s where travel comes in. And that’s what makes a travel-related gift an extra special, thoughtful gift for Father’s Day this year.
Here are some of our favorite gifts for the traveling dad, gifts that come wrapped up in great memories and happiness.
A cigar tour. Even better than a box of cigars for Father’s Day is tickets to a special cigar-related event. For something big, the Habano Cigar Festival in February in Cuba is hard to top. It’s the world’s largest celebration of quality cigars.
A beer-cation. A beer-centric event can be a great getaway for Dad. We love the Space Coast Brews Cruise, on the Space Coast in Florida. Check BeerTrips.com for a listing of other beer tours near you, or in in your dad’s favorite town.
When booking the beer-cation, Hotels.com is running a great Cash Back special right now with up to 4 percent Cash Back. That can help you save some pocket change (so Dad can buy a growler or two to take home, if he wants).
A travel mug. If you are on a smaller budget, you can still get your dad something to take with him on his adventures. A simple, stainless steel travel mug, perhaps decorated with a photo of his favorite vacation, is a practical and meaningful gesture.
A more comfortable trip. Discomfort on airplanes is one of the leading complaints among travelers. Make Dad’s next trip less of a pain with a memory foam neck pillow. Go Travel Memory Pillow, $37.99 at walmart.com.
