The best Father’s Day gift ideas for men who have everything.

“Father’s Day is important because, besides being the day on which we honor Dad, it’s the one day of the year that Brookstone does any business.” – Jimmy Fallon

Sometimes it can be difficult to shop for dads. I’ve done the work to save you from Brookstone with 15 stylish gifts sure to make any dad smile. Go beyond the coffee, golf balls or gadgets this year and gift something that will truly make the day special.

01

For The Well-Groomed Dad

The father in your life won’t lose the spring in his step when wearing Bond No. 9’s bold scents. This trio features the oud, rose, tonka bean and musk notes from their Signature Scent; the cool, refreshing and natural Chez Bond; and the floral unisex New York Patchouli.

This trio of 50ml bottles is the perfect introduction to the brand and Mom will appreciate your gift just as much as Dad.

For The Thirsty Dad

If your father enjoys Highland Scotch, he’s likely a fan of The Dalmore and their noted cask curation. This special release, named for King Alexander III, honors the story represented by the brand’s signature 12 point stag. In 1263, as legend has it, the leader of the Mackenzie clan saved the King of Scots from a raging stag. The symbol represents the distillery born in 1839.

Casked in Kentucky bourbon barrels, French wine casks, sherry butts, Marsala barrels and port pipes, this complex and earthy single malt is one dad is sure to enjoy on a special Father’s Day and beyond.

03

For The Vacation Dad

Every dad likes to have his throne and Sunflow makes a high-quality chair he will not only use at the beach, but also enjoy in the backyard or at outdoor summer concerts.

Despite its classic look, The Shore Thing Chair is Sunflow’s newest chair. It reclines to three positions which is helpful for different terrains, use cases and body types. And the sun shade and cupholder upgrade is totally worth it.

04

For The Dry-Humored Dad

“Do you file your nails?” Answer: “No, I just cut them off and throw them away.”

As often as we groan, we all love the dad jokes. “The Very Embarrassing Book of Dad Jokes” will have Dad stocked with fresh one-liners for months. There are other dad joke books on the market, but one thing I like about this one is that it’s quite British. If your dad appreciates humor from across the pond, this is the one for him.

Warning: Don’t go this route if you don’t want to hear quite a few of these dad jokes yourself. You’re in charge of your own destiny. But, I guess it’s Father’s Day anyway…

For The Adventurous Dad

If it’s been a while since you last saw a GoPro, prepare to be blown away by the features and film quality of the newest HERO12.

Of course it’s designed to be used when skydiving, mountain biking, kayaking and the like, but it can also be easily used to capture the kids just having fun at the pool or an amazing sunset.

Depending on the dad in your life, you may be enlisted to help set it up and learn how to use it, but I suspect it will be time well invested when you appreciate the footage in 10, 20 or 30 years time.

06

For The Grill Master Dad

What dad doesn’t enjoy building a fire, watching the family meal sizzle while sipping a cold drink, and enjoying the fruit of his labor with those he loves?

Dad is in for new fun with the ooni. Blasting up to 950 degrees, the Koda 12 Outdoor Pizza Oven can cook a pizza in 60 seconds for that perfectly charred crust. There is a slight learning curve to craft the perfect pie, but it’s a fun journey and one well worth taking. A perfect Father’s Day activity.

07

For The Well-Read Dad

“Table For Two” will be one of the more widely discussed books this summer. This collection of witty short stories can be enjoyed by voracious and occasional readers alike.

The author of “A Gentleman in Moscow”’s latest is receiving heaps of praise from both individuals and the press including this note from the Los Angeles Times: “Superb … This may be Towles’ best book yet. Each tale is as satisfying as a master chef’s main course, filled with drama, wit, erudition and, most of all, heart.”

08

For The Writer Dad

Or the ones we wish would become writers… I love these beautiful, handy journals and the collab with The Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series. Most of us wish our loved ones would write more of their wisdom and memories for future generations to read and, while the company-branded swag journals get buried and forgotten, the beauty of these journals might just inspire use.

Pick a pack (of three) that reminds the dad in your life of a memorable trip together, or use your park selections as an impetus to plan a trip to one of our national treasures such as Arches, Glacier or Yellowstone.

For The Handy, Gadget-Loving Dad

Having the right tool for the job makes all the difference in the world. And there isn’t much more satisfying than having the right tool at the ready in those unexpected moments when one might need to loosen a screw, pry something open or uncap a bottle.

Instead of the bulky multitools that are never around when you need them, this one goes anywhere your keys go.

10

For The Audiophile Dad

Fun, casual, original yet inexpensive. Music-lovers will love to add these 4.1-inch coasters to a home bar or family room. They even come with coaster-related faux song titles.

At $5.99, you’ll spend almost as much on the card as you will the gift making this the perfect Father’s Day gift on a budget.

11

For The “Well-Heeled” Dad

Whether it be a vacation in Europe or a weekend away, these Grant Stone penny loafers offer an appealing blend of polish, comfort and versatility for your summer adventures.

Made with a caramelly-bourbon colored calf suede, these can easily be styled for an evening out, an afternoon of shopping or a day of travel. They work perfectly as part of a travel capsule wardrobe, are comfortable even if worn all day and are my go-to travel shoe right now.

12

For The Homebody Dad

There’s something primal and communal about sitting around a fire. Strangers can become friends. Friends can share their hearts and be known.

In recent years Solo Stove made this experience much more accessible and comfortable with their innovative smoke-reducing fire pits. The true gift here is the conversations you can share around it.

For The Lounging Dad

What dad couldn’t use a luxe workout gear or lounge set upgrade? It might finally be time to move on from those paint-stained sweats and ratty old t-shirt.

I love this medium-weight jogger set that feels as good as it looks. The tapered pant legs fit well and, while you know I’m not one to be out and about all day in athleisure, when I’m in home lounging mode, I can appreciate the high-quality fabric. So will your dad.

14

For The Competitive Dad

Games can be a great way to spend time with Dad and backgammon offers the right amount of depth without being overly complicated.

This set comes in three sizes and I like that it’s built for travel. This set could easily go to a park for a picnic or be thrown in the trunk for a weekend away. The sturdy case also makes it easy to store at home.

15

For The Stylish Dad

Don’t know exactly what to get, but still want to send something special? Give Dad a gift card to the He Spoke Style Shop. Our made-to-measure process will provide that special dad in your life with a personalized experience resulting in a bespoke piece he can proudly wear often.

Whether he might need a shirt for work, a new sport coat for social occasions or any of the many other items we now have in our shop, it would truly be an honor for us to be part of your Father’s Day in this way.

Thanks, as always, for reading and Happy Father’s Day!

Stylishly Yours,
