An airport dad checking the departures board again

5 signs you are travelling with an 'airport dad' this Summer

With Father's Day incoming on Sunday 16th June, 2024 you might be lost for ideas to celebrate your dad on the big day.

If you are embarking on a family holiday this Summer, you are at risk of a chance encounter with the 'airport dad'. In that scenario, stay calm! Our Eco-Conscious Travel Goods could make the perfect Father's Day gift for the organisation obsessed dad in your life.

What is an airport dad?

Uncovered on social media, the airport dad can be found in the the airport terminal worrying, organising and stressing excessively.

That journey through the airport can turn a mild-mannered dad into military personnel. 

What to buy an airport dad for Father's Day?

Organisation and planning is key to the airport dad's Summer travel plans. Lucky for you, we know a thing or two about staying organised on-the-go. Here's two gift ideas for the airport dad in your life.

The Eco Essentials Pouch

You best believe that the airport dad will be a responsible owner of everyone's passports from check-in to departure. Without it, the holiday won't be going ahead, so the airport dad takes no risks when it comes to the handling and storage of your passport.

With our Miho Black Eco Essentials Pouch, the airport dad has a place of safekeeping for passports and other essentials like foreign currency, medication, keys and anything else he fears losing on that march through the airport.

The Coconut Padded Laptop Sleeve

Pre-flight you just know that the airport dad will print off every travel related document for the trip away. Flight details, travel insurance documents and car hire confirmation, it's filed and ready to go. 

Whilst we designed our Miho Black 13-inch sleeve for laptops, MacBooks and iPads, it also comes with a dedicated A4 divider for the airport dad's freshly printed documents.

And if your dad is the ultimate of airport dads and needs both the pouch and sleeve, then treat him to the Tech Bundle and get 20% off.

And now to the important part! If you witness any of these behaviours from your dad, ready yourself for the impending family tension and social shame of travelling with an airport dad.
