With Father’s Day fast approaching, we’ve been searching far and wide for awesome gifts for those lovely men in our lives. The days of giving dad a coffee table book or a set of BBQ tools are long gone, so we’ve found a bundle of unique gifts that dad is sure to love.
Perhaps you have a fashionable, preppy dad, who occasionally likes to head to the country club for some golf. He enjoys the finer things in life: wineries, caviar, and cheese tastings. But above all, he prides himself in his put together, slightly eccentric, posh style. For this dad, a bow tie with a fun pattern would be a perfect gift. Forage Bow Ties sells a vast array of specially designed ties, ranging in patterns from gingham and polka dot to floral. You can’t go wrong with this classic gift.
If dad’s more of the outdoorsy type, then he most likely enjoys long hikes, gardening, and of course cooking things on the grill! He’s the one you ran to when there was a bug in the house, and rather than killing it, he carefully escorted it into the backyard. For this dad, we found the ultimate grilling tool, but with a twist. Williams Sonoma sells customized, monogrammed steak brands, that are sure to impress any outdoor-loving dad, who of course enjoys the look of his initials on his meat.
Ok, so your dad is neither fashionable nor outdoorsy. He’s more tech-savy and has more gadgets than you’re able to keep track of. Finding a gift for him can be tricky, as his taste is oh-so-eclectic, but don’t you worry- we’ve got your answer right here. This uber cool tool is sure to be appreciated by geeks, techies and dad’s worldwide. ThinkGeek.com‘s USB LED Beverage Cooler is a single-can mini fridge powered by a USB cord to cool down dad’s beer, soda or drink of choice. Cold drinks and strange methods of technology: seems like a perfect combination to us.
Let us not forget the ever-polished, swanky Dad. He spends his time making important business decisions and enjoys being classy at all times. Swanky dad can be seen wearing a suit most days of the week, which is why it is fitting that our chosen gift is cuff links. Brooks Brothers sells a slew of these, ranging in style from nautical to classic, and simple to extravagant. If dad is particularly adventurous, Brooks Brothers’ Airplane Cuff Links serve as a classic gift with a special tailspin that this dad is sure to love.
