He’s one of the most special men in your life and this weekend, (June 17) it’s time to celebrate dear ol’ dad and thank him for all he’s done (even if he has scared the living daylights out of a few prom dates).
Whether your pops is the stylish type or more of a tech savvy gentleman, we have a handful of items that make for the perfect gifting options that’ll have him smiling ear to ear.
Check out which items we’ve deemed worthy for the man of the house!
For The Stylish Dad - Tom Ford Ties: Tom Ford suiting is iconic. Jake Gyllenhaal, Usher, and Brad Pitt are all clients. Make the traditional tie gift exciting with a Tom Ford. Any guy who appreciates style and a special tie will appreciate it. Visit http://www.tomford.com/#/en/wheretobuy/retailers to find a Tom Ford retailer in your area.
For The Classic Dad - Art of Shaving Brush, $55: Don Draper uses one on "Mad Men." A shaving brush is masculine and sexy, which is a perk for the lady. And it gives him a stellar shave, which he'll like. This Art of Shaving Badger Brush lifts the hair to deliver the closest possible shave. Pass this tip from The Art of Shaving on: For your best shave, dip a clean, sharp blade in hot water. Using gentle pressure, shave with the grain of your beard. Notice that the hair may grow in different directions. For an even closer shave, re-lather and shave gently against the grain.
For The Young, Hip Dad - The Hand Rag, $48: Don't be like everyone else -- in a good way. Menswear line Artfully Disheveled offers uber cool ties, bowties, and pocket squares. The Hand Rag is a particularly snazzy pick.
For The Fun Dad - Jack Spade CC Holder, $80: Chances are, all of your dad’s belts, shoes, and wallets are brown, navy and black. Spice things up with the Jack Spade Monza Leather Credit Card Holder. It's bright and happy. We love a dad who doesn't take himself too seriously.
For The Traveling Dad - John Allan's Shorty Shave Set, $118: The Shorty isn't as tall as a standard-size razor, but it's got weight and presence and executes like the best of them. The limited-edition kit includes travel size products, which makes packing easy for a guy who racks up frequent flyer miles.
For The Tech Dad - Bluetooth iPad Keyboard Case, $99: It’s tough managing touch-screen keyboards with delicate lady fingers. Imagine what it's like for dudes. Give your pop a grip with a Bluetooth iPad Keyboard Case. The case will prop his iPad up and lay out a laptop-like plastic keyboard for all his typing activity.
