Whether he’s always on the go locally, traveling across the country or taking trips around the globe, give him a gift that will make his busy life a whole lot easier.
Tablet computers are great, but sometimes you want a real keyboard. The Bluetooth Keyboard Pro (Brookstone, $150) is perfect for dads on the go. This wireless, full-QWERTY keyboard for his iPad comes with a rich, genuine leather case. The keyboard can magnetically clip onto the case or detach to be used anywhere.
If he often travels out of the country, he’ll need a universal adapter. This universal travel adapter (Container Store, $10) makes a great stocking stuffer. It features two parts that can be used separately or in various combinations to accommodate the different power supply sources in as many as 150 countries.
Whether it’s on the airplane, train, bus or even in the carpool, the right headphones will allow him to eliminate background noise so he can relax and enjoy his music (and the journey). The Bose QuietComfort headphones (Best Buy, $300) are some of the best available.
Road safety kit
If Dad spends a lot of time in the car, make sure he’s safe and prepared. Consider buying him an AAA subscription, along with a road safety kit. The 77-piece AAA Warrior Automotive Safety Kit (Overstock, $67) is packed with 45 first aid items, along with many other safety pieces including jumper cables, an air compressor, emergency whistle, flashlight and more.
It’s not easy to stay fit while traveling. However, the GoFit Ultimate Pro Gym (REI, $35) can make it a whole lot easier. The set includes resistance tubes, ankle cuffs, a training DVD and much more.
For the new dad who is always on the move, a baby carrier is a must. He’ll never have to leave the baby behind, even when going on walks or hikes. The Ergobaby Original Carrier is very popular among both moms and dads.
