We wrote a post for the mamas for Mother’s Day. So you don’t think we’d leave out the papas, do you? We might talk to and about our lovely mama followers a lot, but oh, do we love our papa followers. Although we can’t pinpoint how many of you are LanguagePreschools.com advocates, our @LanguagePreschools Instagram account indicates that 16% of our followers are men. That’s a small number but a mighty force.

To put it simply, dads who raise bilingual kids rock! Whether you’re a bilingual dad who is actively engaged in the One Parent One Language approach or you’re a monolingual papa who supports the language learning efforts of your partner and children, we appreciate you.

That’s why we put together a list of Father’s Day gifts for the language loving, world traveling papa…

Here are six Father’s Day gifts, available for easy purchase and quick delivery through Amazon:

Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera

Put the power of the latest camera technology in Dad’s hands with this Nikon D3400 DSLR camera, which has more than 500 customer reviews and 4.5 stars on Amazon. We purposely chose one that won’t cost several paychecks because affordability is key, especially for families with kids.

In addition to being inexpensive, this model is light and comfortable to carry. Best of all, it is designed for newbie photographers–but without a compromise of image or video quality. Great value, amazing photos…what’s not to like?

Airbnb Gift Card

Give your next international travel destination a more authentic feel by staying in someone else’s home. With Airbnb, you can book rooms or houses located around the world–sometimes at cheaper prices than traditional lodging options such as hotels.

Plan a surprise trip for the beloved papa in your life, and make Airbnb a special and unique part of the getaway. Denomination options through Amazon are $50 and $100. You’re going to want the $100…and maybe a few of them!

Audible Membership

If Dad hasn’t already done so, it’s time to get him on the audiobook train.  Audiobooks are hot right now, and there’s no reason your favorite papa should be left out. With Audible, you get a 30-day free trial that includes two audiobooks.

Every month after that, for only $14.95, you get a credit for one audiobook (which you get to keep forever, even if you cancel). Then, after you finish that one, you get 30% off any additional audiobooks for the month. Audible is hard not to love and makes the perfect gift subscription for a literature-loving papa.

Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader

No bilingual papa should be without a Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader for all the multilanguage reading material he can get his hands on.

E-Readers have come a long way since they were first introduced. This one holds charge exceptionally well, it doesn’t have an annoying glare in the sun, it’s light to hold, and it’s friendly on the eyes at nighttime.

Choose from black or white, and don’t forget that Amazon Prime members read free with unlimited access to over 1,000 titles.

NEEKFOX Lightweight Packable Travel Backpack 

Every papa needs a lightweight travel and hiking backpack. Use it as a daypack for domestic or international travel. Features include water resistant material, reinforced stress points for increased durability, tear resistant fabric, and the ability to carry up to 44 pounds.

This one has a solid 4.5 stars with 355 customer reviews on Amazon.

Pimsleur Spanish Conversational Course – Level 1

Pimsleur is our all-time favorite resource for adult language learners, so we recommend it every chance we can.

It’s an audio software, available in many languages, so it’s easy to consume on the go–in the airplane, at the gym, on the bus, and wherever else Dad might find himself.
