Sure, a tie is nice. But give Dad the gift he really wants for Father’s Day: a space of his own. The best mancaves call for classic textiles, handsome English antiques, and a vintage shaker for that signature cocktail. We’ve got you covered. Make Dad’s day with these picks below.

Why We Love Them: Artist Vera C. Argentini created these hand-colored lithographs featuring a Blue Gill and Black Bass chasing after small prey. Signed by the artist, they are mounted in sage matting and giltwood frames. Perfect for the fisherman who loves to reminisce about days on the lake, they will add a natural presence to his study.

Why We Love It: For the avid reader, this faux-leather sling will collect and protect all his favorite magazines and periodicals. Its stainless-steel X-frame will stand as a sleek companion to Dad’s reading chair.

 

Why We Love Them: These vintage bronze leaping goats will make dynamic bookends in Dad’s library. Handsomely rugged in a green and brown patina, and mounted on hefty marble bases, they will guard his books well.

Why We Love It: Libations are in order for Father’s Day, and nothing can beat this patinated chrome Zeppelin shaker to get things started. A whimsical way to celebrate Dad—don’t forget the garnish.

Why We Love It: Appeal to Dad’s inner Galileo with this vintage Saturn-shaped lamp. Made of brass with a frosted glass “ring” and a three-tiered marble base, it will illuminate his reading with a celestial glow.
