8 Fab Fathers’ Day Gifts

Fathers’ Day is just around the corner. It’s been my experience that dads can be harder to buy for than moms. (Honestly, I thought he’d love the crossword-puzzle-of-the-week subscription.) No worries, though; we can help. We’ve looked past the old standards—let’s leave the ties and cologne to the kids, people—to bring you some cool gifts for dad to enjoy.

1. A Whimsical, Practical Sculpture

This adorable dachshund, made of heavyweight cast iron, stands at the ready, to clean shoes or boots at the end of a long muddy day.

5. A Matched Set

This barware includes tools to make mixing martinis or margaritas a breeze.

6. A Sanity Saver

Really, this is a gift for everyone in the house. Those chargers are a huuuuge pain to wrangle, and you can never find them when you need them. This way, they all stay neatly tucked away. (This is also ideal for traveling.)

7. A Healthy Way to Hydrate

It’s easy to make fruit-infused water with this bottle.


8. Another Kind of Game Day
