Father's Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner…and so is the age old question of “What on Earth do I get him???”  Never fear!! I’ve scoured the Internet and conducted a highly unscientific survey by asking a few dad friends of mine what they’d like to receive.  These  gift ideas are what have landed on my 2018 Top 10 Gifts For Dad!

  1.  Cocktails For Two

There’s nothing like enjoying a quiet evening with a drink in hand…unless Dit’s a cocktail you mastered on your own AND get to share (unless you don’t want to.  Hey, it’s your gift. I’m not gonna judge you). What I like about Saloon Box  is that you get one box a month that has everything you need to make amazing craft cocktails at home, including the ingredients and instructions!  The best part, like I mentioned above, it that everything is proportioned for TWO people! It’s like having some of the world’s best bartenders in your living room…but not really.  It’s a monthly cocktail subscription box and clocks in at $37.50.

  1.  Cold Brew Coffee Master

Getting Dad a Keurig is so  * yawn * 3 years ago.  Why not let him morph his inner mad scientist with his latent inner hipster and get him something that will indulge BOTH sides?  The Yama Cold Brew Tower ($250) is not only absolutely GORGEOUS, (hello, curved wood and hand blown, dishwasher and microwave safe glass parts) but it literally looks like the kind of caffeinated science experiment I can get behind.  Ice + Water + Fresh Coffee = cold brewed magic he can tweak to his exact specifications. It is also super cool looking!

  1.  Keep It Spicy

Got a dad who’s got a zillion different bottles of hot sauce?  Why not add 6 more BUT these are ones he made HIMSELF? Give him the gift of spice with this fun DIY Hot Sauce Kit!  $34.95 gets you a variety of spice packs, 6 bottles + labels to pour his creations into. Get it here from Uncommongoods.com

Beyond The Shave 4 Weeks

  1.  The Gift Of A Better Shave

What man likes razor burns, razor rashes and ingrown hairs from shaving. Why not gift him the gift of a better shave?  Rodan+Fields’s Beyond The Shave features 3 proven products specifically curated by top dermatologists for men skin care needs. This 3 step regimen helps calm overall razor irritation and gives him a smoother, closer shave while revealing better skin.  Shave with the Unblemish Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash to soften facial hairs for less razor bumps and a smoother shave. Added bonus? It does double duty as a facial cleanser! Follow this up with the Soothe Sensitive Skin Treatment instead of aftershave. Packed full of proprietary RFp3 peptide technology, this powerhouse product comforts and moisturizes freshly shaved skin while also visibly reducing redness.  

Lastly, protect and smooth his skin with Redefine Triple Defense Treatment with SPF 30. Get it here.

  1.  Live And Learn

Master Class

My husband loves learning new and useful things.  That’s just who he is and I love that about him. Why not spoil the man in your life with the gift of learning?  I love MasterClass for this reason because YOU can choose to either gift him with one class for $90 or spend $180 for an All Access Pass that gives him access for a whole year!  I mean, we’re talking WORLD CLASS professionals! Learn photography from Annie Leibovitz. Learn how to cook with GORDON RAMSEY. Stephen Curry will help him hone his bball skills.  What’s not to like?

  1.  Massage

Massage for Father's DayYes, you guys.  Men love massages also!  Why not treat him to a great massage? I won’t tell if you treat yourself to one at the same time!  I enjoy Hand And Stone Massage. Look and see if there’s one near you!

  1.  A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Family Photo

Give the gift of memories by booking a photo session with a great photographer.  This is the one thing my husband asks for every year. Fill your home with memories year after year!  Picture People is a great budget friendly place that has an indoor studio and various packages that can fit just about every budget.  Added bonus is having your photos printed out and framed right then and there! Or you can also splurge and hire a photographer who specializes in family portraits.

  1.  Tile Sport $25

Never again will again will you have to hear “WHERE ARE MY KEYS????” when you attach the Tile Sport to his keys!  All he has to do is open up the Tile app and BAM! The Tile Sport will locate it for him. The Tile Sport is waterproof up to 1.5 meters just in case it gets splashed on or dropped into a spill.

  1.  MeUndies

I know underwear isn’t exactly the kind of gift most people think about giving on Father’s Day, but this brand is highly rated!  For starters, the fabric they use is super soft and is really comfortable. Added bonus is that they can keep costs low due to being an online service ONLY. You have the option of spending $20 for a one time order or $16 as a subscriber.

  1.  Charitable Gifts

For the dad who TRULY has everything and doesn’t need or want anything, why not make a charitable gift in his name to a cause near and dear to his heart?
