Father’s Day is just around the corner, and finding the perfect gift can be a challenge. If you’re buying for your father, husband, or a meaningful person in your life, you want your gift to represent how special he is. A “World’s Best Dad” mug simply won’t do!

Does your dad love to travel? Here are five great gift ideas for the globetrotting guy in your life!

Travel Kit

For the dad who’s always on the go, a leather toiletry bag is both luxurious and practical. This Dopp Kit from Revisit is 100% hand sewn and comes with a product guarantee. It’s perfect for packing toiletries for an upcoming business trip or Azamara cruise!

An Internationally Stocked Bar

Stoke Dad’s feeling of wanderlust by stocking his bar with internationally inspired choices. Select a sampling of beers of the world, mixing in classics and unexpected finds.

  • Guinness (Ireland)

  • Hitachino Nest White Ale (Japan)

  • Duvel Triple Hop (Belgium)

  • Amazon Beer Acai Stout (Brazil)

  • Aecht Schlenkerla Helles (Germany)

  • Einstok Toasted Porter (Iceland)

The best part? This gift can be pulled together at the last minute with one quick trip to your local specialty beer and wine store.

If the dad you’re buying for prefers wine, buy a special bottle from his favorite travel destination. Does he long to return to the vineyards of France? Surprise him with a unique bottle of bubbly! Grower Champagnes are produced by the same estate that owns the vineyards and are increasing in popularity. They may not carry the same name recognition as more famous brands, but many have excellent ratings for their prices.

For fathers who love spirits, look no further than some of the top-rated whiskies in the world. Distilleries in destinations like Taiwan and Japan have been taking home international awards recently, and you can never go wrong with a classic Scotch. Gift him one of these award-winning selections:

  • Kavalan Solist Amontillado Sherry Single Cask Strength (Taiwan)

  • Suntory Hibiki 21 Years Old (Japan)

  • The Fuji-Gotemba Distillery Single Grain 25 Years Old Small Batch (Japan)

  • Old Pulteney Vintage 1989 (Scotland)

  • Glen Alba 22 Years Old Blended (Scotland)

For a truly global bar, buy Dad a cool globe bar!

Long-lasting Wireless Headphones

For dads who love music or podcasts, a pair of wireless headphones that will go the distance are a must. The Plantronics Backbeat Sense Wireless Headphones deliver up to 18 hours of continuous use on one charge, so they’ll stand up to even the longest of flights. Sensors automatically pause audio when you take the headphones off, so no need to worry about missing a section of your audiobook when the flight attendant comes round to take drink orders. And they’re stylish to boot!

A Globally Inspired Cookbook

Is your dad a foodie? He’ll love a cookbook inspired by his favorite international cuisine! Pair it with a great knife or custom cutting board to really knock his socks off. These are some of the most popular global cuisine cookbooks:
