Shopping for dad is hard, and you can only get him so many ties and golf balls before it loses its excitement. Let's be honest, Dad doesn’t want something he would just buy for himself, so for this Father's day let's think outside the generic dad gift box!
For the On-The-Go Dad
S'well Water bottle $35
Yeti Roadie 20 $199
If your dad is anything like mine, he's constantly on the move. May it be long work days or frequent surf trips, he would definitely benefit from a cool sip of water throughout his long day. Keep dad extra cool (pun intended) with a Yeti cooler to pack with snacks, lunch, or post-surf beers with the guys. Either way, he will appreciate the thoughtful and very useful gift!
The Outdoorsy Dad
Does your dad's idea of a perfect weekend involve trekking off into the wilderness? Help him out with a solar charger in case of emergencies or a comfy hammock to lay back, relax, and listen to the wonderful sounds the natural world has to offer. Each of these can be as affordable or expensive as you wish, so any budget can be accommodated. You can even double up and book yourselves a camping trip to test out these new goodies!!
For the Trendy Dad
If your dad is more of a "Don Draper" type or just likes to stay up on the trends, hook him up with a subscription to Birchbox Man. The bonus here is you don’t need to go to a store or wrap a present! These boxes can include pomades, moisturizers, fancy razors, and even cool socks and gadgets. If that doesn’t sound like your dad's thing you can't go wrong with a nice pair of shades to fit his personal style!
The Foodie Dad
Himalayan Salt Plate $31.96
Grill Master Crate $99
Let's face it…who doesn’t appreciate a food-related gift?? Especially with summer quickly approaching, and the corresponding BBQ season, getting him a new toy for the grill is a sure thing! A Himalayan salt grilling slab is perfect for the dad that likes to try new things, plus he'll never guess what's in that heavy box (gotta keep him sharp right!!). If you're looking to spend a little more and really go all out this Father's Day, check out Man Crate for some good food related options. Let Dad get creative with a DIY hot sauce box, or a box designed for the grill master he knows he is!
The Tech-Savvy Dad
Shopping for a tech-savvy dad is harder than most (as he probably buys the latest tech as soon as it's made available!). Remedy this with a fancy charging station that doubles as a home for his apple watch! This is a super affordable and thoughtful gift that will both keep him organized and earn you brownie points for your thoughtfulness! To spend a little more grab him an echo dot to make sure he has access to Alexa in every room of the house!
