Father’s Day is right around the corner. If your dad is as big into gear as we are, and you’re having some trouble coming up with one – we’ve compiled a quick guide of awesome Father’s Day gifts to give him. These gift ideas range from classy shoes to handy pocketknives, so there’s something on this list for everyone.
A hybrid somewhere between a field pen and classy ballpoint, the Tactile Turn Copper Slider is built from tellurium copper and looks great whether in the office or in the field. It has a unique arcing, bolt-action clicker and that functions with one hand for easy, on-the-go use.
For the mixologist in your life, this stunning shaker is made from stainless steel, sleek copper and has a unique, minimalist and vintage appeal – adding sophistication and elegance to any bar.
The classic wood-handled Opinel goes hi-tech for this modern update, a rugged outdoor knife that incorporates a fiberglass-reinforced polyamide handle into the familiar French silhouette. It’s got a 3″ Sandvik stainless steel blade, a shackle key, and a 110-decibel whistle in case of emergency.
Currently on sale at Nordstrom (which only happens about twice a year), the Madison Park’s are a classic pair of dapper wingtip brogues. They’re made in the USA with Allen-Edmonds customary 212-step crafting process and a Goodyear welt – meaning they not only look fantastic but will last decades to come with proper resoling.
July 4th is right around the corner, after Father’s Day. So if Dad is the freedom-loving type, grab him one of these red, white or blue starred ties from the Tie Bar. Inexpensive, narrow but not skinny, and with a dash of flair.
Half money clip, half bottle opener, this tool is made from stainless steel and clips right onto your belt or into your pocket. It’s slim and convenient, with little excess bulk; the bottle opener itself is also completely retractable, sliding neatly into the wallet case.
Whiskey is a classic gift for anybody, and this limited edition bourbon is sure to put a smile on Dad’s face. Only 12,00 bottles of Knob Creek 15 have been made, in 3 different batches – each clocking in at 100 proof. Each has complex wood and oak notes, with some vanilla, spice and subtle sweet caramel. Perfect for sipping on long summer’s nights.
Is your Dad into gadgets? Are you ready to splurge a little? The Mavic is a compact drone that folds down to the same size as a water bottle, but has a range of 4.3 miles, 27 mins of flying time, goes up to 40MPH. The built-in camera offers true 4k video resolution.
For the dapper, well-groomed gentleman, this beard balm is made from a blend of wax, shea butter, mango butter, and 5 carrier oils. It’s smooth, shiny and conditions a well-trimmed beard into silky softness. The Vanilla Tobacco Scent is also rugged, manly and delicious.
A nice valet tray not only looks classy, but makes a neat, convenient place for Dad to throw his keys, wallet and other EDC at the end of the day. It’s made from gorgeous tanned Chromexcel leather with metal button snaps, right at home in the USA – guaranteed to last for years to come.
