Hello, summer! So glad you came, and please pull up a patio chair and stay awhile. We’ve all been cold way too long in this town. It’s time to enjoy the season with great FINDS for summer and Father’s Day. The Father’s Day gifts can be used for any day, and in some cases, for both men and women.
This is not just any water bottle, this is a Yeti Rambler, big enough for your larger drinks. As with everything Yeti, this drink is going to stay cold for a long, long time with its signature double-walled insulation. Find these for $89.99, along with a host of other great Yeti products, at Circe + Swag.
Cotton baseball cap
We loved this baseball cap for its Southern simplicity. Just a simple cotton blossom on a simple cap that says a lot. Made by Cotton Brothers, it retails for $25 at The Shirt Shop.
Father’s Day massage
A massage is a wonderful gift to give and, honestly, it is the gift that keeps on giving. Elements Massage is offering a Father’s Day special with a 100-minute massage for $89. It is valid only at the Westport Village location.

This is a great bulletin of sorts to post in front of your man’s man cave. Ladies, just let them have this one. These are sold at Work the Metal for $48.
Vintage drink holder
This is a vintage, double-decker drink holder from the 1970s that holds 22 drinks and is on wheels, making it easy to move around your patio or party. Put ice in a holder in the center, and your 22 drinks will stay cool. This awesome piece is at Repurposed Modern and sells for $92.

Unlike women, men rarely make a big deal about swimsuit shopping. In fact, they make no deal at all, which is why you should probably buy a couple as a gift just so he will look acceptable at the pool. These beauties are from The Fashion Post and are from Peter Millar, Southern Tide and Castaway. Prices range from $78 to $85.
The Spinster Sisters have a line of toiletries for men that smell amazing and feel great as well. Buy the Gentleman’s Sampler, which includes soap, body butter, muscle stuff, deodorant and lip balm for $46. Add the beard balm for $15 and the shave soap kit, which includes the mug, the brush and the soap for $45. These are sold at Vintage Style & Designs, and be sure to check out the other toiletries as well.
Father’s Day mugs
We love these mugs because they include Doggie Daddies as well as Baby Daddies. Everyone deserves love on Father’s Day, right? These mugs from Louisville Stoneware are $26.
Was your man’s last umbrella a giveaway prize from a golf tournament or from his bank? Time to get a real adult umbrella, and these are perfect. With animal heads and a snazzy carrying case, these retail for $25 at Celebrations.
Time to transition your handbag to a lighter-weight material for summer. This wicker Fiona crossbody bag from J. McLaughlin will be your workhorse bag of the summer, all the while being light and airy. This is $198 at J. McLaughlin.
Need a clutch that’s a little more casual for summer outings and parties? This straw and pom-pom clutch from cale & cole is quite fun and is definitely a conversation starter. It comes in natural straw and black and retails for $32.
It may be a little early, but everyone needs a hat for the Fourth of July, and you can definitely wear this year-round if you are feeling extra patriotic.

Life really is better at the lake, right? Well, let’s post it at our house and sing it from the rooftops. Okay, maybe that’s going too far, but a sign should suffice to show your sentiment. This sign is sold at the Urban Farmhouse Market for $30.
Let’s face it, not all of us have green thumbs. This individual sized succulent garden in a wood planter is a great gift for someone or ideal to brighten your own home. Sold at Merridian for $126, this is a garden you can enjoy year-round with little maintenance.
Going along with our lake theme, these soy-based candles from Lakegirl all have a “lake”-inspired scent: love, float or wish. Buy these for your lake house to keep or to take as a hostess gift when visiting someone else’s lake house this summer. They’ll love you for it! These are sold at Apricot Lane for $18 each.
Happy shopping everyone!
