If the man in your life spends a lot of time travelling, giving him a gift that he can use when on the road is a practical and thoughtful idea. An appropriate gift for a traveller can provide entertainment, enhance safety or make the travelling experience less of a hassle. Whether your guy is travelling for business or pleasure, make sure to give him a gift he can take along for the ride.

Travel Bag

Giving a man luggage is an obvious gift, but if your guy travels a lot on short trips, he may appreciate a small carry-on travel bag that he can keep with him. Since many men pack light, he is likely to be able to pack all he needs for a two- or three-day trip in the travel bag. A great option is to buy a bag that includes zippered compartments and sleeves for organising contents and keeping potentially leaky items such as lotion and shampoo separate from clothing. Travel bags made of sturdy nylon are an affordable option, while leather bags are generally more expensive.

Travel Bottle Set

Whether your guy travels for extended periods or not, chances are he'll eventually need personal toiletries. Giving him a travel bottle set can save him a lot of space and money. By filling the bottles with items such as shampoo, liquid soap and lotion, he can save space by leaving large bottles home. By bringing his personal toiletries with him, he can avoid having to purchase them when he reaches his destination. Be sure to choose a set that is labelled as meeting standard airline regulations for carry-on products.

Portable Facial Hair Trimmer

A portable facial hair trimmer is an appropriate gift for the man who likes to stay well-groomed at all times. A portable trimmer is generally smaller than an electric shaver and its sleek and slender design makes it a practical option for travelling. Most portable trimmers include multiple comb attachments for different parts of the face and require one or two batteries for operation.

Money Belt

Since most men bring credits cards or cash along when travelling, it may be a great idea to give him a money belt as a gift. A money belt may not be the most fashionable gift he has ever received, but the lightweight accessory can be worn under clothing, possibly to prevent situations of pickpocketing and theft. Besides holding credit cards and cash, a money belt can also keep airline tickets, a passport or other small valuables safely hidden.

MP3 Media Player

While not a necessity, an MP3 media player is a gift that may provide him with hours of entertainment during long rides and flights. Many MP3 media players offer a lot of storage and battery life and allow him to listen to MP3 songs, watch video clips, listen to FM radio, view pictures and record voice memos. Consider buying him an MP3 media player with at least 4 GB of storage for storing extra music and media for longer trips.

Digital Photo Keychain

A digital photo keychain is a gift that many travelling fathers may appreciate. Instead of travelling with a wallet full of photos, he can conveniently keep pictures of his children and loved ones close to him. Digital photo keychains typically display JPEG, GIF and BMP image formats, have various storage capacities and are available in a variety of styles, sizes and colours. Many also include additional features such as a clock or calender.
