Father's Day Gift Guide

Who sucks the most at buying gifts for men?! πŸ™‹πŸ»

Could it be because I am always surrounded by women? Who knows! When it comes to Father's Day, I've summed it up to these categories: Tech, food, sports and "just for fun". I also try to give them something that they wouldn't buy themselves otherwise. So I did my research and took out all the recommendations that I will probably be giving the fathers and grandparents of my life: 

Techy Dad

You will make him happy with anything that has to do with the latest technology. So why not get him an Amazon Echo so he can boss someone around or a new sound system. This one by Marshall is portable with a retro look that will be perfect for a classy dad. 

Shop for the Techy Dad:

  • Amazon Echo: $180
  • Marshall Stockwell Flip Cover Speaker: $250

Sporty Dad

Chances are, he enjoys some type of outdoor activity. Get him an Apple Watch or Garmin if he already doesn't have one. If he doesn't already own one, chances are, he won't buy it himself but actually wants one. Because smart watches are that type of accessory you don't know you want until you have one πŸ˜‰ (#capitalism). I talked about it a little bit in my monthly favorites

Shop for the Sporty Dad:

  • Apple Watch Series 1: $270 (save!)
  • Apple Watch Series 2: $399
  • Garmin: $280
  • Fitbit Flex: $175

Foodie Dad

Grilling stuff or a cool cooking book is always a good idea for a dad who appreciates the art of cooking. Give him something that he can actually use in the future like a cool cook book or a set of super awesome barbecue utensils

Shop for the Foodie Dad:

  • Berghoff 33 Piece Barbecue Set: $200
  • Byron: The Diner Cookbook: $25
  • Bondi Harvest: $30

Geeky Dad

Repeat after me: A drone is always a good idea! He will enjoy flying that so much! Or just give him anything Star Wars or from his favorite series. Here are some suggestions:

  • Star Wars Dodgy Graphic Tee: $13
  • Star Wars Line Drawing Tie: $20
  • Star Wars Darth Vader Bow Tie Cuff Links: $56
  • Drones: Splurge $349, average $80, save $40.

Absolutely no idea what to get him?

Go with the basics: Grooming kits!

  • Phillips Norelco Shaver: $70 (reg. $120!)
  • Royce Travel and Groom Kit: $135
  • Jo Malone Cologne: $80
  • Harris Brass Shave: $80

Let me know what you are getting the dads in your life!

Until next time,
