Father’s day sorted for the traveling dads!

By June 11, 2022June 19th, 2022No Comments

Let’s go traveling daddy-o’s! Father’s Day really celebrates all those who care for others. We’re raising a glass to the dads, the ‘funcles’, the cousins, the babysitting boys, the nanny men, the father-like figures, the moms who play both roles, the dads who play both roles, and everyone in between. 

If you’d like to support and appreciate the masculine mentors in your life who also love travel-themed, unique gifts and experiences, we have you covered. You won’t find any power tools or candles here either – we have some really interesting and fresh ideas instead!

Infamous Swim matching family suits

A real family hero is one who will rock matching outfits without complaint. Some can be really cringey, but Infamous Swim has some super chic and fun styles for those vacations in the sun and sand. Hailing from Australia, this size-inclusive line of swimwear is an awesome choice for its buttery materials and awesome designs. Maybe dad will even finally get that Instagram account to show off his new swim trunks! What could be cuter than a matching baby and da-da at the pool or beach.

We love the Neon Nights design best that offers rash guards, swim trunks and more for the whole family. Infamous swim also has a jewel-tone line that donates 100% of its proceeds to organizations that assist in alleviating period poverty.

Havenly interior design services

If there’s a dad in your life you might nicely be nudging towards getting more involved in the house, this is perfect. It’s a fully virtual design mockup for your home created by a professional interior designer at a fraction of the cost. My husband loves collecting pieces from our travels, but never knows exactly how to incorporate them into our spaces. This gives him a chance to get involved in making our home a sanctuary of memories from our adventures worldwide.

Attitude Living body care and hair care

Filling up those tiny travel bottles with your shampoo and conditioner is such a pain when going on a getaway. So the solid bars from Attitude Living have been a game changer and are so much more packable when it comes to trips. Fathers (and everyone!) will love the gorgeous orange/cardamom scent that leaves hair soft and light. Shampoo bars come in eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging, last much longer than traditional shampoo, and dry after each wash to be nice and portable. I find hair care bars to be best for short hair, and our whale family loves them.

Rhum Clément Agricole Blanc

Lots of dads enjoy a nice drink, especially those handling kiddos under five! We love to stock father’s at-home bars with fantastic spirits, such as the Rhum Clément Agricole Blanc. Not only is this neat and tasty white rum ideal for simple, classic cocktails, dads who have traveled to the Caribbean will feel nostalgic while sipping back home too. Our favorite way to enjoy this rum hailing from the island of Martinique is the Ti”Punch, made with fresh lime and sugar cane syrup. Yum yum, happy Father’s Day!

Hubee molds and more

Add pops of color to Dad’s life with some kitchen gifts from Hubee. Made from environmentally responsible materials, you can choose from ice pop molds, food storage containers, antimicrobial baking mats and much more.

All these kitchen essentials can help dad food prep for the best road trip snacks and meals.

Plus, the molds in particular can be great to take along with you as well when traveling with babies. Popsicles make wonderful teethers and can allow kiddos to try local flavors in a fun way.

As a bonus during Pride Month, 100% of all sales from the Beehive Ice Tray line is donated to organizations that support the LGBTQIA+ community.

Unbound Merino travel shirts

I have a hunch the man in your life needs to rotate out some of his undershirts. Badly. So why not upgrade to a luxurious option with the Unbound line of merino wool black and white t-shirts.The shirts are anti-odor, packable, light and fast-drying. They also carry classic socks and boxer briefs to round out his wardrobe. And if you are shopping for him, don’t forget to check out their new women’s line of travel dresses and other trip staples.

PS – bookmark the Pure Wander giveaway page and follow us on Instagram for a chance at a upcoming prize pack from Unbound clothing!
