Show Your Dad Some Love On Father's Day With These Awesome Gifts
What are you waiting for?
You probably shouldn't need a special day telling you to appreciate your father through the power of presents, but yet here we are. It's a few days before Father's Day, and you still haven't picked up a gift yet. Will you panic? Or will you take a deep breath and browse through the following list of potential presents for the most important man in your life? We suggest the latter. Ahead, our Father's Day gift guide.
Adam Hunter, STND, $249, available at Adam Hunter.
You might think your dad is a superhero, but he charges his phone like the rest of us. So with that in mind, why not let him do it in style? Designer Adam Hunter has crafted this elegant charging deck that is made out of pure marble. Unnecessary? Maybe. Baller? Absolutely.
Grow and Make, Artisan BBQ Sauce Kit, $39.95, available at Grow and Make.
If there’s one thing we know about dads, it’s that they love to barbecue. And if there’s one thing we know about barbecue, it’s that you need a great sauce. So why rely on the same old store-bought concoctions when you can make your own? That’s what you’ll be asking your dad when you hand him this awesome present.
Related Garments, The Week Package, $147, available at Related Garments.
Buying socks and underwear for your dad might seem a bit weird, but when they’re this comfortable, stylish, and affordable, it kinda doesn’t matter. With this seven-pair combo, you can show your dad that while you care deeply for him, his sock game could use some help.
The Best American Sports Writing of the Century, $14, available at Amazon.
David Halberstam is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, so if someone knows good writing, it's him. He compiled this book of the fifty greatest pieces of American sports writing of the 20th century (in case the title wasn't clear enough), which include works from Hunter S. Thompson and Tom Wolfe. For the rare jock who also loves to read.
Bespoke Post, Bespoke Post Gift Box, $55-$540, available at Bespoke Post.
For the dapper dad who worships at the altar of GQ and is all about that Y chromosome of his, this service will curate, assemble, and ship monthly boxes of well-crafted, hand-picked goods, from distinguished clothes to artisanal food and grill gear. All you need is a subscription.
Juicepresso, $549, available at Juicepresso.
The juice craze is sweeping the nation, but it’s the opposite of cheap. That’s why juicing at home is becoming a more viable option. As for the Juicepresso, besides its snazzy name, this gadget is small, nimble, easy to use and clean, and oh so quiet. It's a little pricey, so you'll probably want to split it with your siblings, but this is something that's actually worth it. Juice on.
Echo, Amazon, $179.99, available at Amazon.
You might think that Echo is just another wireless speaker, but you’d be very wrong. This sleek little cylinder uses voice recognition to become an incredibly convenient and cool way of playing music, yes, but also of providing weather and traffic information and syncing up with other smart devices to basically become your home’s central nervous system. Oh, and she goes by the name Alexa. Cute.
Brooklyn Brew Shop, Beer Making Kit, $40, available at Brooklyn Brew Shop.
For those dads with big brewery dreams that fizzed out, they can test out their beer-making skills with this all-in-one kit. And the best part about it is that it’s reusable—all you need are the ingredients (which are included for the first batch). It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
