We’ve always liked Tom’s sunglasses and the idea behind them – for every pair of sunglasses bought, they provide sight for one person either through prescription glasses, sight-saving surgery or medical treatment. Get Dad the limited Save The Waves edition that supports the Save The Waves Coalition in protecting coastlines and natural surf spots around the world.

They Draw & Travel
Choose a map of somewhere your Dad’s been, or somewhere he wants to go, from this collection of unique maps drawn by professional illustrators, practicing artists and passionate doodlers. Each map is one-of-a-kind, highlighting off-the-beaten sites and activities that are local favourites. This one is of St. Augustine, Florida by Nate Padavick.

Napa Dori Bags
These handcrafted bags are the work of Gautam Sinha who creates beautiful leatherwork stamped with images of India. We love the laptop bags and notebooks detailing Mumbai street scenes almost as much as we covet this yellow travelling trunk.

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
Surely the Daddy of all headphones are these noise cancelling ones by Bose. These are so good at eliminating all sounds that your Dad will forget he’s travelling with kids…until you spill your airplane orange juice all over his iPad.

Apparently Backgammon is the oldest known board game; a similar game was unearthed in Iran dating back to 3000 BC. Give Dad a stylish travel set to take on holiday. This one includes 30 playing pieces, four dice, and an instructional booklet.

Ensure Dad gets a good night’s sleep on the plane with the J Pillow, designed by a mum and former Virgin Atlantic flight attendant. This travel pillow keeps your head supported and elevated from the side as well as supporting your chin at the front so that your neck doesn’t fall forward while you sleep.

For Dads who like espresso on the go, consider the Handpresso Outdoor Set that contains a small, portable and manual espresso machine (the Handpresso WILD hybrid) plus four unbreakable cups, a thermos-insulated flask and even a small napkin to wipe up any spills.

Swiss Army Knife
We know some Dads who never leave home without their Swiss Army Knife. If your Dad hasn’t got one yet, why not treat him to this travel essential.
