I know I’m not the only one that thinks buying Father’s day gifts is hard. Buying a wallet or a new tie can seem a bit hoe hum, but at the same time, we all know dad wants something useful, not a bouquet of roses or chocolates that would have been more than okay with me for Mother’s day.
For traveling dads, you can help get them ready for a road trip in style, with something useful for the car. One of our partners, RAVPower sent us some great products to try, and we realized that it would make the perfect last minute Father’s day gift for traveling dads!
RAVPower has so many cool gadgets for dad, there’s a lot to choose from, but we went with the most practical!
Start with a car phone charger. What I really appreciated about this one was that it is a USB charger, so it works with phones, tablets and anything else with a USB that dad might need to charge. If you’ve ever tried to navigate a road trip using the GPS on your phone, you know how quickly that sucks power, this will help dad not get lost and keep him in communication with you if he’s traveling solo.
I love how small and lightweight it is. It would be easy to fly with and then use in a rental car too.
Thinking through what else dad might need in his car, jumper cables are definitely at the top of the list.
It’s always good to carry these in your car, but what I really loved was how compact these car jumper cables can be stored.
These zip up neatly into the case and ours neatly fit into the glove compartment. (related: have you ever tried to photograph a glove compartment…not easy to do!)
Get ready for Father’s day this year by grabbing some great gadgets for dad from RAVPower!
