If your dad has a strong case of wanderlust, these gifts are the perfect things to enhance his globe-trotting adventures save buying a boat.
Aukey 3-in-1 Clip-on Cell Phone Camera Lens Kit
Aukey clip-on lenses are the perfect gift for the dad who wants to take super high-quality snaps of the world’s wonders without sacrificing the portability of a smartphone. The 3-in-1 set comes with a fisheye lens, wide angle lens and macro lens that’ll work with phone models across Apple and Android by simply attaching it over top of the camera. The best part? The kit’s surprisingly cheap, starting at $17.99.
Narrative Clip 2
While some dads who travel are all about photography, others forget to take a single picture on their adventures. What better gift for those dads than the narrative clip? The clip is an inconspicuous wearable camera that automatically takes an 8 megapixel photo every 30 seconds and takes 1080p video when double tapped. It can then store up to 4,000 of those photos, or 80 minutes of video, which is a surprising amount of storage for so small a travel companion.
iPhone 6S Smart Battery Case
The dreaded vision that haunts every traveller’s dreams: 1% battery on their smartphone. Make that nightmare a thing of the past for your dad with this iPhone 6S battery case. The silicone case made by Apple pledges talk time of up to 25 hours, LTE internet use of up to 18 hours and video playback of up to 20 hours. Your dad will thank you for this when he’s navigating his way through a foreign country with only his phone to guide him.
Pro Subscription to Shoebox
Your on-the-go dad will never have to worry about backing up photos again with a Pro subscription to Shoebox, a Canadian mobile and web app that offers unlimited and encrypted photo backup to the cloud. The Pro version, which is $5 per month ($60 for a year), gives him original quality backup of his photos and 10 hours of 1080p video backup.
Pricing: $5/month ($60 for a year)
One of the first things that crosses any traveler’s mind when they’re planning a trip is cell service. Do you get a travel pack, use your roaming program, grab a SIM card where you’re headed? Save your frequent traveller dad the headache, at least for the U.S. and Mexico, and get him a Roam Mobility SIM. This present won’t break the bank, either, with 2GB of U.S. data for a month at the price of only $30.
Pricing: $30 for 3GB of U.S. data lasting 30 days, $60 for 5GB of U.S. data lasting 30 days and a variety of other options.
