We all know it, don’t we? That no two dads are alike? Sure, guys are a different breed in the most general sense, but dads … well, they all embrace the role differently, and as such, don’t you think Dear Old Dad deserves a unique gift on Father’s Day that’s every bit as awesome as he is? We do. Here are some great Father’s Day gift ideas that will show him you took some extra care this year and picked out the perfect gift with him in mind.
Give Dad the gift of style with these stainless steel William Henry cuff links. Each features sterling silver finish accents with platinum plating, and one side features a Woolly Mammoth tooth, hand polished and laid in the sterling silver border. $500 at Bromberg’s
If Dad’s an aspiring MacGyver, the Pocket Monkey multifunction tool is the way to go. He can boast 12 cool features, including, but not limited to, an orange peeler, earbud cord wrap, a phone kickstand (yes, seriously), several screwdrivers and that’s just the start. Find it for $14.95 at The Blue Willow.
Patagonia base layer
For the active dad, definitely consider this Patagonia silkweight, capilene, men’s graphic crew. It’s perfect for wicking away moisture and providing protection from the elements. Find it at Alabama Outdoors for $49.
Travel and dopp kits
If Dad is more of a road warrior, check out the Bellemonde egan leather men’s hanging travel kit and dopp kit. Handsome, just like him, both kits are ideal for monogramming, making them every bit as unique and classy as he is. $27 each at B. Bayer & Co. Monogramming and Gifts
Also at Alabama Outdoors is this Yeti stainless steel rambler. The 20-ounce, man-ified, to-go cup is perfect for a morning cup of joe, be it consumed in the car, at the office or in his no-doubt uber-masculine man cave. $29.99
Grooming essentials kit
Fine, so Dad’s not necessarily metrosexual, but he definitely takes pride in his appearance. So indulge that desire with the Aveda Men Grooming Essentials Travel Kit, which includes travel-size shampoo, conditioner, after shave and grooming clay. $32.50 at Salon U
For the beer lover, the Grizzly Growler is the perfect gift! Fill it with his favorite brew for an added touch of “just for you!” Find it for $35 at Table Matters.
We can’t think of a better treat for Dad than a visit to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum. Inside, you will find a collection of 1,400 vintage motorcycles, give or take a few. Believe it or not, most of these vintage beauties are perfectly restored and in working order. You will marvel when you think that this collection was curated by one man–George Barber, former dairy magnate and real estate developer. The 830-acre Barber Motorsports Park, which includes the museum, is home to the Porsche Sport Driving School. Now, that’s another great idea for Dad.
Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
