Gift Ideas | Perfect for Stylish Dads

Your father deserves more than a hastily-bought tie, cologne, or subscription to a mail-order steak club. (Seriously, just take a moment and think back to your teenage years.) This Father’s Day, treat him to a gift that reflects his interests in the most stylish way possible. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite picks from Viyet, organized by personality. Gift any of these options with a bottle of his favorite spirit and, of course, a thoughtful card.

For The Dad Who Still Really, Really Likes Don Draper
He’s still hung up on the nice suit-wearing, hard-drinking, visionary Don Draper and blithely ignores the more unsavory parts of his character. Perhaps he still idolizes James Bond, too.

Pristine vintage martini shakers offer the perfect way to end the day (left, silver-plated Sonoma shaker; right, vintage French shaker).

For the Manly Man
He’s a font of knowledge about everything from whiskey to repairs. He appreciates fine craftsmanship and letting his actions speak louder than his words. (We imagine him as a more stylish Ron Swanson.)

He’s not one for finding decorative items in his spare time, so he will appreciate you finding the right items that suit his distinct character (Vintage Wagon Wheel, Vintage Moose Antlers, and Jonathan Adler Power Fist Pillow).

For the Grillmaster
From Memorial Day to Labor Day, he’d rather be outdoors. Whether he’s making dinner for two or handling the cookout, the Grillmaster’s happiest and most comfortable at his grill.

For the Collector Who Has Everything
Whether it’s art, mid-century memorabilia, or just anything antique, he has a soft spot for history. The only thing that limits him is space and the free time for acquisitions.
