Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 21st, and we have a list of no-fail gifts. Our gift philosophy is modest and thoughtful – we aren’t big on over-the-top splurges, rather we recommend finding something you know they will use and like but may not purchase for themselves.
1. Jo Malone cologne in Wood Sage & Sea Salt. It’s a perfect manly mix of woodsy and fresh.
2. Think of this Jack Spade slim wallet as the clutch for men. It doesn’t fit everything – just what they need for a date night or game day out.
3. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel. Although my husband is the frequent (reluctant?) recipient of the skin care products I don’t care for, finding a product especially designed to keep his skin healthy and handsome is just the ticket.
4. I love a fun tea towel, and this one is all about dad. This is a great gift to accompany a kitchen or grill theme, and it’s a useful item that is going to last long beyond this Father’s Day.
5. These cool pint glasses are the perfect gift to go along with a craft beer (or soda) theme. Toss in some bike gear like socks or a small bike tool and a homemade “long bike ride” gift card, and you have a cool set.
6. Does your man like to grill? Then this himalayan salt plate is a must have. We have been using our salt plate for over a year, and it’s still going. The key is to purchase the salt plate holder, so as the salt block breaks down, the plate keeps it in place and protects the edges. We grill everything from fish to veggies on our plate, and it adds the best flavor.
7. Tom’s denim slip ons. My husband goes straight from dress shoe to sneaker, so this is the perfect in-between shoe for casual weekend wear.
8. Westward Leaning shades. The frame is unisex and fits most faces, so you may find yourself sneaking these as your own. The small piece of redwood on the arm is so boss without being flashy.
9. Bowtie. Every man needs a little southern style! This bright and handsome pattern from Original Penguin is great for Fridays at the office.
