We’re all familiar with pulling our hair trying to think of a last minute gift for our mothers. Thankfully, Father’s Day gifts are much easier to shop for. You’d just have to find something practical that your dad will treasure for years to come.
If the first man in your life travels often, be it for business or leisure, buying gifts for him this father’s day is a whole a lot easier. The options are endless — whether it’s something useful he can take on his travels, or if you’re treating him to a new experience altogether.
If your father is a modern adventurer, say no more. Here are the best Father’s Day gift ideas for dads who travel.
Who ever said a Maldives getaway is only reserved for the special woman in your life? Treat your dad to the greatest weekend of all time at Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi with AccorHotel’s Luxe Dad Man Cave Retreat. This includes a three-night stay in a luxury villa with a private pool, where fathers can enjoy a variety of dining and sports activities specially planned for them.
Your dad will also get to indulge in dining experiences from a floating breakfast with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean to a four-course gourmet dinner including wine pairing at Azure Seafood restaurant preceded by a private beach cabana sunset pre-dinner wine and cheese tasting at Onu Onu. Adventurous dads can embark on a two-hour private snorkelling trip with the resident marine biologist in the house reef, private tennis lessons, one-hour fly board or a private jet-ski lesson. The Luxe Dad Man Cave Retreat is available until 30 June 2019 at US$900++ (S$1,228) per villa.
Rimowa and Bang & Olufsen have collaborated for the first time to create a pair of limited-edition Beoplay H9i headphones that hone in on the craftsmanship characterising the two brands. The headphones are made from anodised aluminium and genuine leather, and come in a warm light grey colour that complements its accompanying Rimowa aluminium case. With powerful and precise Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound, the wireless headphones feature active noise cancellation and an innovative touch interface.
Is there a more appropriate gift for your audiophile dad who is also an avid traveller? We don’t think so. The limited edition Rimowa x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9i headphones will be available at a recommended retail price of S$1280, exclusively at the Bang & Olufsen flagship store at Grand Hyatt.
Evoking vintage racing inspiration and a dynamic city look is this Montblanc backpack, which makes for a great gift idea for the modern dad. The backpack is made of smooth and perforated soft leather, and offers a main compartment, a zipped front pocket, a side pocket with press buttons for a bottle, an additional side pocket, and a zipped compartment for shoes on the bottom. It is perfect for the man who is always on the move.
If your father loves travel and whisky, this Father’s Day deluxe whisky tasting set is a good gift idea. Admittedly, it’s not as ideal as getting on a private jet and embark to the different distilleries around the world — but it’s the next best thing. This Master of Malt tasting set offers 10x 3cl samples of some of the finest whiskies in the world, including single malt Scotch from Islay, Speyside, and Orkney — as well as whiskies from USA, Ireland and Taiwan.
A garment bag is always a good idea to have with you when you’re travelling. Not only does it keep your clothes wrinkle free, it also saves space in the car or suitcase. If your dad is often going for business meetings abroad, this Samsonite Garment Sleeve will be a great travel companion for his carefully-ironed suits.
