Father’s Day Gifts – Do a quick search and you’ll probably be bombarded with “You’re the Greatest” ties, and coffee mugs. You could get dad just about anything, and he would be thankful. But this is the man that taught you how to drive, the guy that put up with you through all your phases (we saw that yearbook photo). Why not get him something unique, something great, something he’ll really enjoy.
We’ve put together a list of Father’s Day Gift Ideas to outfit him with some of the things you might actually want yourself.
Dad has been on the go since before you were born. Help him slow down with a new watch from the brand Slow watches. These watches have only one hand, the hour hand. Time passes by slowly; it’s about time he gets a chance to relax.
Dollar Shave Club
A box-subscription company that lets you choose from great razors, and pick the frequency of the refills. A few bucks a month gets Dad a great razor, and the no-commitment subscription is easy to set up so he’s always got a fresh one when he needs it. Dad has always got your back, and now you’ve got his.
Eat Like a Man: The Only Cookbook a Man Will Ever Need
Maybe you have memories of Dad making you finish your vegetables before leaving the table every night, but that doesn’t mean the guy can’t cook. This book puts together some of the greatest meals Dad could dream of. He will love it. But you’re going to do the cooking on Father’s day, right?
Bison Leather Rogue Front-Pocket Wallet
Help Dad replace that old overstuffed wallet that he’s been sitting on for ages. Rogue Industries makes the best wallet tailored for his front pocket, where a wallet belongs. It’s patented, and made in Maine, USA from Cowhide, Bison, and Moose leather. These front-pocket wallets last forever, so unfortunately you won’t be getting him another one next year.
Portland General Store Skincare Gift Set
With scents like Wood, Black Fly, and Hunting Camp, the folks at Portland General Store (Maine, of course) know how to make luxurious, and natural products for guys. This skincare set is complete with Shave Jelly, Beard Oil, Hand Cream, and is perfect for an adventurous empty-nester Dad’s next adventure.
Bespoke Post is a box-subscription service with boxes geared toward fashion, food, grooming, and much more. This is a truly unique Father’s Day Gift that lets you pick one box, or a monthly subscription. These custom-curated creations are perfect gifts for the grill-master, the fashion-forward dad, or the jet-setter.
L.L. Bean Men's Signature Jackman Camp Moc
Remember that fishing trip you went on years ago? Or that cabin your family rented on the lake? These L.L. Bean Signature Mocs are what Dad wore on that trip. They are handsewn, crafted from premium domestic leather, and outfitted with rawhide laces by Kentucky’s renowned Auburn Leather Company. Dad will love kicking around the camp in these comfy moccasins from L.L. Bean. This is an awesome father’s day gift that he’ll have for years.
Rather than just buying gift, why not take Dad on a unique father’s day experience at your favorite local brewery? Ours is Allagash Brewing Company in Portland, Maine. The tours usually take you through the brewhouse where you learn about fermentation, kegging and bottling, and most of them end with a tasting. Find out what his favorite libation is, book a tour, enjoy some quality time with Dad!
