Father’s Day is June 17th, so here is a list of items, many available locally, to get you thinking about this hard-to-shop-for day!!!!
Polar Bear Coolers
These soft coolers come in 6, 12 and up to 48 pack sizes guaranteed to keep those important beverages ice cold. What’s best is they won’t sweat, they come with a bottle opener attached, they don’t take up a ton of room and are great for the beach, soccer games and outdoor concerts. Have it monogrammed for a personal touch!

The cooler of all coolers. This cooler will no doubt leave the man in your life squealing like a kid on Christmas when he sees this gift. Not only are Yeti’s indestructible, but they can keep your beverages cold for up to 5 days. This cooler seems to be what a Christian Louboutin is to a woman…I guess now I finally see what the fuss is about!

If you want to make your dad or husband feel really manly this Father’s Day, gift him with a Luminox watch, originally used by the Navy Seals. These Swiss made watches are not only good looking but they have a special feature called Tritiumdial, which in girl terms means that it stays bright even on the darkest nights. Perfect for the sportsman or outdoors-man in your life.

Filson Leather Money Clip/Card Holder
Creating the best outdoor clothing and accessories since 1897, Filson is one of my go-to brands whenever I need a gift for my husband. Case in point… my husband for years has used a paper clip as a wallet and so this wallet/money clip holder is a perfect solution without the bulkiness of a big wallet.
