Father’s Day Gift Guide
June 7, 2016
Because a man only needs so many pairs of socks, here’s our choice of gifts for the papa in your family.
For the tech-head
The Fitbit Blaze, a consumer-magazine favorite and by far the best-looking fitness tracker out there — with smartwatch capabilities, too. Available at Macy’s. As of March, Apple’s iPad Pro comes in a new smaller size (just 9.7 inches) with an awesome camera — the best you’ll find on any tablet. The Impossible Project has been collaborating with Polaroid to bring back iconic instant photos. Take the dad in your life back to those crazy college parties with a refurbished Polaroid 600, available at Bloomingdale’s.
For the bon viveur
The only thing better than barbecuing the perfect steak? Serving it branded with your initials, courtesy of a monogrammed steak brand and carving board from Williams-Sonoma. For coffee connoisseurs, check out the Nespresso Vertuoline coffee and espresso maker, the newest and most versatile machine from the world’s favorite coffee brand, also at Williams-Sonoma. And a Tiffany & Co. cocktail shaker is a gift the cocktail lover in your life will never forget.
For the snappy dresser
Burberry’s London leather messenger bag is a design classic — and it’ll get rid of the iPhone imprint in his back pocket, too. Hugo Boss’s leather and silver Chronograph Driver Watch is the perfect meeting of form and functionality. Keep your dad at the cutting edge with a wallet from Shinola Detroit, one of the hottest new leather brands out there. We love the leather bifold wallet, available at Neiman Marcus.
For the sportsman
The makers of the world’s most popular golf balls, Titleist, have collaborated with Vineyard Vines to produce these high-performance leather gloves, complete with magnetic ball marker. For runner dads, look no further than the Nike Air Max 2016 — now lighter than ever and available in a rainbow of new color combos, at Finish Line. Lacoste makes the classic clothing for summer sports, and now you can monogram one of their iconic polos. Dad style never looked better.
For the man who already has everything
Help your dad spy on the neighbors take beautiful aerial shots with a Quadrone I-Sight Drone featuring a 2-megapixel camera, streaming video, and crash guards. Available at GameStop. A man can never have too many ties, especially if they’re made of exquisite silk in a beautiful Italian design featuring tigers, no less. Check out Salvatore Ferragamo’s tiger tapestry printed tie. The Heritage Collection Rouge et Noir special edition fountain pen celebrates one of the earliest designs in Montblanc’s illustrious history, plus modern technology so it writes like a dream.
