Dads. Those gents that snuck us treats when mom wasn’t around always knew how to make us special in their own fatherly way! The exact same way they made us feel is just how we should go about when choosing the perfect Father’s Day present this year. Here are a few gift ideas that will bring joy, a smile or two, and a send a gesture that says, “I love you, Pop!”
If you’re familiar with Siri for Iphone then you need to meet Alexa; the voice for technology’s latest gizmo! The Amazon Echo is Amazon’s office must-have. The hands-off speaker uses state-of-the-art technology to play music, manage calendars, has conference-call capabilities, and even tells you the weather – just ask Alexa! For dads that like a little background music or want to listen to their favorite podcast while going about their day, this little gadget is a great gift! Mom might get jealous, but maybe she’ll join in on the fun too!
2. Don’t Wrap it, Box it
If you have a doting father (who’s not that great with deciding what he likes but loves you anyway) the birchbox man is the perfect gift for Dad! These monthly deliveries include everything from shaving cream, to fragrances, little knick-knacks and everything for him to sample – just like when he’d send you care packages while you were away at college! It’s your turn to take care of him and the birch box man is the way to do it!
3. Hang High
Hammocks. A reminder that we all deserve a little rest and relaxation. The great thing about hammocks is that they’re truly timeless! Indoors or out, they recreate these magical little spa retreats in your own home. Relatively inexpensive, these hand-made beauties are both functional and stylish. Choose a palette that blends with the rest of your decor and you have a make-shift bedroom (just remember the suntan lotion so you don’t burn)! Find a few options on Island Bay.
4. Going Down Memory Lane on Ruby Lane
For the quirky dads out there, they’re going to love you even more after getting theme vintage collectibles on Ruby Lane. Bring dad down memory lane with these old school finds! Not only will they bring him joy, but they can also make a decor statement at his desk or home!
5. Travel in Style
If your dad’s anything like mine, it’s frustrating to get a hold of him because his phone is always dead! Eliminate that factor and help upgrade their travel style with this new line of luggage by Raden! These sleek rollers have not one but two USB ports on the exterior for him to charge his phone, tablet, or any other gadget that will connect him with you… now there’s no excuse, Dad.
6. Fishing For Compliments…
Actually, he won’t have to – these Filson rod cases are tres chic. made with a tweed and leather blend, these fishing rod bags are not only stylish but lightweight for when the lake is far from the car situation. The inside even has little compartments for him to put his reel, extra hooks, bait and maybe a snack or two (or a portable phone charger ehem….see #5)
7. A Great ‘Finnish’
Some might find this amusing, however, this Kuksa ancient lapland Finland wooden drinking cup (say that 5 times) is a revolutionary drinking vessel. Perfect for keeping that coffee warm, the double finger handle makes it easier for dads that are running around on mornings at home, or in the office, reducing those staining spills! Your carpet will thank you later.
After finding him the perfect gift, the only thing left to make Father’s Day special is your company! Enjoy and happy father’s day to all the gentlemen who deserve the best day – they’ve earned it!
