Father’s Day Gift Guide


  1. Golden Fleece Performance Polo” by Brooks Brothers – Polos are to men as shoes are to women – you can never have enough.  Get Dad one of these soft polos that he can wear when he’s doing what he loves the most.
  2. Cocktail Shaker” by C Wonder – If Dad’s skilled behind the bar, he’ll definitely enjoy this sleek cocktail shaker from C Wonder.  Pick up his favorite liquor and maybe even a new martini set if you’re really wanting to wow.
  3. Whiskey Spheres” by SPARQ – While we’re on the topic of liquor, no man likes a watered down drink making these whiskey spheres an awesome gift for Dad.  At $17 for a set, it’ll work within the tightest of budgets.
  4. Linen Sport Shirt” by Brooks Brothers – My dad is always complaining about how hot it is in the summer steering away from just about anything that isn’t made out of linen.  This sport shirt by Brooks Brothers is lightweight, comfortable, and will look great even with those not-so-popular “Dad-Shorts.”
  5. Henry Pajama Shirt” by Sleepy Jones – Upgrade his old-school PJs with something that’s fresh, cool, and downright awesome.  Add his monogram to the left chest or “DAD” to one of the sleeves for a personal touch.
  6. Dopp Kit” by Everlane – Does Dad tend to hit the road a lot?  If he does, I’m willing to take a bet that his dopp kit has suffered some serious wear and tear.  This reverse denim dopp kit by Everlane is large enough to hold all of his toiletries and comes with a price tag that is extremely affordable.  Should you want to go with something more luxe, the “Crosby Leather Dopp Kit” by Coach is beautiful.
  7. Slippers” by JP Crickets – Give Dad a pair of slippers from his alma mater to remind him of his glory days.  He’ll love wearing them to reunions, hang-outs with old friends, or even just walking around town.
  8. Leather Laptop Sleeve” by Newman Original – This leather laptop sleeve is gorgeous.  Throw away that polyester sleeve he picked up at Target and get him something chic.
  9. Cedar Shoe Trees” by J.Crew – Every good pair of shoes should have a shoe tree to keep them fresh and in-shape.  This Father’s Day, grab a pair of cedar shoe trees and write a small note on the bottoms for a personal gift that will always remind him of you.
  10. Personalized Dress Shirt” by Ralph Lauren – Dad can never have too many dress shirts so pick him up a classic white or subtle blue button down with his initials on one of the cuffs.
  11. Brooks Brothers Country Club Cologne” by Brooks Brothers – It’s always been a tradition in my family to give Dad a new signature scent for Father’s Day. Seeing that he likes to “borrow” from my own collection, it was a no-brainer to gift him with one of my favorite colognes.
  12. The Beer Deck” by Frausto & Co – Is Dad a card player?  Give him this deck of cards that have facts, vocabulary, and tips about beer.  It’s a simple gift that he’ll enjoy regardless if his wins…or losses…at his poker game
  13. Original Aviators” by Ray-Ban – Upgrade his accessories for the upcoming summer with a sleek pair of shades.
  14. Striped Pocket Square” by J.Crew – Instead of giving him a silk pocket square, pick up a cotton one and take it to a local embroiderer and have “DAD” placed on one of the edges.  If this is a gift from siblings, have everyone’s name embroidered on each edge for something that the entire family can give.
  15. Harry’s Shaving Kit” by Harry’s – Upgrade Dad’s shaving game with a kit from Harry’s.  He’ll love the sleek and elegant design.
  16. Caddyshack Needlepoint Flask” by Tucker Blair – What Dad doesn’t love a flask?  This needlepoint piece from Tucker Blair is not only practical, but simply awesome to look at.
  17. Ribbon Key Fob” by Mark & Graham – Simple key fobs with a preppy undertone.
  18. Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails” – Give the gift of mixology.  If nothing else, it’ll make a great coffee table addition.
  19. Fairway Chino Cap” by Ralph Lauren – For those days on the golf course, on the beach, and everything in between.
  20. Four Piece Travel Kit” by Razor MD – Beautiful travel kit for quick grooming needs while on the road.
  21. Swim Trucks” by Scotch & Soda – Nautical swim trucks perfect for those upcoming beach vacations. Add a monogram to one of the sleeves for a small touch of personalization.
  22. The Monocle Guide to Better Living” by Gestalten – One of the coolest books you can get Dad right now.  How great is that name?
  23. Back Up Phone Charger” by Triple C – A gift that’ll seem like the best thing in the world when his phone dies on the way to a business meeting.
  24. Trophy Tie” by Jack Spade – A gift that’ll remind him that he’s always a champion – especially in our eyes.
  25. Valet Tray” by J.W. Hulme Co. – Is Dad always forgetting where he put his keys, wallet, or other important items?  This tray will serve as “the spot” for his accessories that seem to “always go missing.”
