The only person who might be harder to shop for than your mom, dads of all ages will insist that they want for nothing, that a gift won’t be necessary this holiday or any other, and that you should save your money. But we know better. Dads are selfless by nature, and that’s why their father’s day gift should be all about them. This father’s day, ditch the automated tie rack and coffee mug, and opt for one of the following picks:
Our favorite: Brady Double Old Fashioned, Pair with Decanter, $99.00
For the dad whose bar cart is his own personal point of pride, the dad who finds joy in a glass of scotch in front of an open fire, a whiskey decanter set is a distinguished and completely practical option. Your dad will be more than happy to play bartender when he’s making his famous old fashions in these fine glasses by Waterford. If your dad isn’t a scotch man, opt for a pint glass set instead for his favorite brews.
WIRELESS TV HEADPHONES
Our favorite: Beats Studio3 Wireless Over‑Ear Headphones, $349.95
Whether your old man is a podcast addict, audiobook fanatic, or fancies an 80’s pop playlist on his daily walks – he’ll love the noise cancelling powers of these Beats headphones. And if he travels often for pleasure or work, high quality headphones are a must-have that he will be especially grateful for. This pair by Beats are the best you can get at the moment, and are so good at blocking out the outside world that you may find him wearing these during the next family get together.
Our favorite: Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons of Golf, $69.95
Instead of adding to his already absurd collection of sports memorabilia, give dad a gift he’s sure to use this Father’s day. If a weekend spent on a putting green is his idea of a great time, then he’ll love experiencing it off the green. A golf book is a great idea for the dad who likes to hit balls. We love Ben Hogan’s classic read on the fundamentals of golf for tips and strategies on upping your game. This leather bound collector’s edition will be a prized possession on your dad’s bookshelf, and is in his golf bag.
We hope our recommendations have quelled your anxieties about father’s day shopping. And if you’ve got any tried, tested and true gift ideas, let us know as we’re always looking for new ways to spoil Dad.
