I get it. You’re dad’s not a regular dad, he’s a cool dad. Somehow he came out of parenthood unscathed by wrangler jeans, chunky white new balances, and Hawaiian prints. Let’s reward such behavior for the man who is dad to the bone. Here are 15 picks for every type of guy in your life.
FOR THE BEACH BUM
Founded by surfers, these board shorts are “built to take a beating at the beach”. Stylish and practical is a win/win.
Take your dad back to his OG birks, but with an updated twist. He’ll love the comfort, and you’ll love his cool factor.
Ok, how cool is this? This portable speaker is Bluetooth-enabled and offers 20 hours of battery life. The party can’t stop, won’t stop with this guy.
FOR THE JET-SETTER
TSA-Approved, your man will be fresh and so clean, clean even on the go.
Known for the best and most historic tanneries in the country, quality meets style with this Detroit-made brand.
FOR THE SNEAKER HEAD
Athleisure is here to stay. Keep him fresh to death from weekending to the gym.
A classic leather sneaker is the perfect addition to the wardrobe. Whether Casual Fridays or backyard BBQs, he’ll be the hit at the water cooler or the grill.
FOR THE DAPPER DAD
Keep his wrist game strong with this simple gold cuff. Miansai pieces are handmade, literally, from conception to assembly.
This shoehorn is inscribed with “no one can fill my father’s shoes” – for the dad who really can’t be outdone.
If your dad is a Colognoisseur (Bachelorette fans, anyone?), Tom Ford is for him. The men in my life have sworn by anything and everything he creates.
Classic, yet updated, the denim jacket is a solid staple that needs a home in his closet. Pair with shorts, chinos, or denim on denim. The world is your oyster with this must-have piece.
THE WORKOUT FEIN
My boyfriend says this is the best $150 he has ever spent. Connecting and disconnecting is as simple as putting them on or taking them off.
Insulated, eco-friendly, and oh so cool. Fill it with water for the gym and beer for the beach.
USB charging cable and an Apple lightning connector all on your keychain (in a non-embarrassing way, might I add). If your dad is all about practicality and efficiency, this is for him.
Keep him powered up with a built in battery pack, right in the phone case.
