How to Pick a Gift for Father's Day
Rhiannon Ally: Father’s Day is near and dad can be so tough to shop for so we went to the woman on the know Dannielle Kyrillos, Editor-at- Large at Daily Candy. She has some creative gift ideas that don’t include that dreaded standard, the tie.
Dannielle Kyrillos: June is here and with it the annual dilemma what to get dear old dad for Father’s Day. We want to reward him for being such an amazing pop our whole lives but we don’t want to bore him. How to pick a gift?
Now let’s say you're dad is a little bit bored of going to the office, he wants to feel more rugged, more manly, get him an outdoorsy bag that’s great for work or play.Filson is a hunting and fishing outfitter. Their Fil bag happens to make a great briefcase. So even if dad is just hopping on the bus and heading to the office, he’ll feel secretly sporty with one of these. They're $135 at filson.com.
Do you have a kind of pop who has to have something sweet after dinner? He’s bored with the usual old chocolate. Talenti sorbetto e gelato that’s sorbet an Italian ice cream, is brand new and absolutely delicious. It’s made in the artisinal fashion keeping up with traditional recipes and it comes in amazingly delicious flavors like caramel cookie crunch and hill country peach champagne.
What if your dad needs to impress the neighbors, he’s hosting the next neighborhood game night and he needs to really wild up? Get him Wine Wars. You can find it at chroniclebooks.com. It’s $19.95 and it is the most fun you can have talking about wine. It’s a trivia game that tests everyone’s knowledge about wines.
Let’s say your dad needs to get out in the fresh air a little more often. You tried to encourage him to take walks with mom that wasn’t cut it. A bird house made of real birch tree is what's going to lure him into great outdoors. This is from kioskkiosk.com and as you can see it is a real birch tree so he’ll get to experience flora and fauna at once.
If you and your siblings live far from home, your dad obviously really misses his babies. He needs something else to nurture, how about heirloom seeds. These artfully designed packets are from the Hudson Valley Seed Library. You can find them at seedlibrary.org. They're designed by New York state artist so the packages look great and then he can spend all of his time tending these plants and growing them into beautiful fruits and vegetables instead of pestering you to come visit.
I can't think of any dad who doesn’t love a project. Keep him from driving your mother crazy by figuring out something else to tear apart, get him an old fashion wooden puzzle. Libertypuzzles.com makes puzzles the old fashion way out of real wood. They make the most beautiful, beautiful puzzles whether it is a print of art like this work by Van Gough, maybe a vintage map or some sort of crazy shape. These are really tricky and will keep him busy for hours and hours and hours.
If your dad is the master of the barbecue of the whole backyard for that matter, what he needs is a new toy out there, an elegant simple lantern. Pottery Barns makes these. They range in price from $49 to $79. They add a whole new way of looking at the backyard. So I hope I've inspired you to think outside of the box for dad’s gift this year. Happy Father’s Day!
