There’s something about Dads that just make them so difficult to shop for. (How else to explain all those ties we gave him over the years?) But this Father’s Day, we decided to stop and think carefully before we hit “buy” on that boring button-down or oddly utilitarian gift certificate to his favorite car wash. Instead, we’re giving Dad a gift that speaks to his favorite hobbies and passions in life. Here are just a few of our current favorite gifts for Dad this year:
Why we love it: Vinyl is back in a big way. This nostalgic turntable will take him back to his glory days (and his beloved record collection that’s been in storage way too long). Complete the gift with a t-shirt from his favorite band, or tickets to a summer concert.
Why we love it: Etched with a modern crest updated with the use of a bold skull, this edgy decanter has a black lead glass body and clear glass stopper that stands out in any setting. Feeling generous? Include a bottle of his favorite spirit and a few gorgeous highball glasses.
Why we love it: This indie watch brand is taking the luxury market by storm with its minimalist designs. The Steel HP-1 Automatic will be his new favorite timepiece.
Why we love it: Minimal lines, modern appeal, and enduring style makes mid-century a popular era among Dads who are into design. This two-tiered cart can work as a mini bar or as a statement storage piece.
Why we love it: Upgrade his morning routine with an old-school gift set that has everything he needs for a closer shave.
Why we love it: Photographer Paul Edmondson offers a gorgeous new perspective on the natural environment in his work, Ruby Beach. This timeless work is an inspiring choice for his office or study.
