fathers day gift guide

All dads are cool, but especially yours, right?

Which is why we stand behind any of these items if you’re looking for a last-minute, “Hey Dad, thanks for being such a swell guy and teaching me about life, adventure, merit and for all the sacrifices you’ve made so I could be where I am today” kind of gift. If you need a way to say thank you to the father figure in your life — in addition to the brunch, hug or simple I love you — try picking up one of the below.

The Art of Shaving Kit + Brush

To bring back the nostalgia of the classic shave, gift Dad a set from The Art of Shaving. You can create your own bundle of products, or select one of their prepackaged gift sets. We’re partial to the lavender and ocean kelp. $25-125

Wilderness Magazine

Issue No. 2 of Wilderness is all about the nomad. If Dad would enjoy deep essays, beautiful travel photos, and thoughts from Seth Godin, George Catlin, Jarrod Carmichael or Daniel Norris (to name a few), this is the perfect side to his morning coffee. We highly suggest you borrow his copy when he’s done. $18

Mountain Smith Mountain Dome 3 Tent

Does Dad need some time alone? Once built, this tent creates a unique hexagonal shape giving plenty of room for gear storage, headroom and that ever-welcome fresh air. If he could use an escape, let it be in this. $270

Parker Clay Seaside Blanket

If Dad likes a gift with heart, consider something from Parker Clay. These blankets are crafted using ancient techniques, and still to this day are made 100% by hand by a small artisan group in Ethiopia called Ellilta Products. This group also gives back a portion of profits to help rehabilitate women out of the sex trade. Shop additional items that give back, here$78

Le Labo Concrete Votive

We love Le Labo for many reasons, but near the top of the list is the fact that their fragrances are all unisex. This means their new line of concrete poured candles would be perfect for Dad’s office, reading nook or even bedside table. Three for $95

St. George Spirits Bruto Americano

If Dad loves a good cocktail, then he’ll appreciate the latest from St. George. This is a citrusy, brightly bitter liqueur that could be considered a mellower take on Campari. To wind down after a summer’s work day, or to get the appetite revved up for a big meal, add a splash of club soda and a squeeze of orange and Dad’s good to go. $30

Will Leather Goods Kent Messenger Bag

Did you know the very first leather bags were carried by men in the Greek and Roman empires? Today, Will Leather Goods honors that tradition by using only the highest grade vegetable-tanned leather and top-notch quality construction. While an average bag takes 75 steps on a factory line, a WILL bag averages 159 steps. Though most likely at the top tier of your budget, you can pass this bag from one generation to the next, giving Dad (or a soon-to-be-Dad) an heirloom which celebrates the history of leather craft. $395
