Father’s Day is around the corner! I also consider this a prime opportunity to share some of my favourite travel and tech accessories that would make a great gift for the men in your life.

Best Gifts for Dad

I’m actually pretty good at picking gifts for guys. Why? Because I really like the objects and designs typically marketed towards men. I also think most gendered distinctions in accessories are total BS, so there’s that.

Typically, the best gifts are well-made, useful, and include an element of surprise or luxury. For example, an item that is “too extravagant” for them to buy themselves, or something they didn’t know existed that solves a specific problem.


Another reason I enjoy picking Father’s Day gifts is because my father and I actually have similar taste. We see eye-to-eye on a lot of things from fashion to camping gear. He also inherits most of my technology when I upgrade, so I know exactly what model phone and laptop he’s currently using.
