Sometimes it can be hard finding the perfect Father’s Day gift. I mean, how many years in a row can you get away with just a simple tie (or socks)? It’s even more troublesome when you have a picky husband to cater to!
So before you seal that envelope with the gift card to his favorite restaurant, consider our list below for a more personal appreciation of the man you call Dad.
Me My Suit and Tie
Convenient, affordable, and smart. These are the words chosen to describe what the founders of Me, My Suit & Tie have to offer to today’s man. A subscription box that contains gifts for the Dad who yearns to become a fine gentleman.
Have him adorn himself with quality ties and pocket squares made of silk, to stainless steel cuff links, and collar stiffeners. Each box is created with unique pieces that complement each other well and can also be introduced to an existing wardrobe.
Spoil Dad with a monthly box for a whole year or get him started with a small eight-week package, from this attractive and affordable subscription box.
Nomad Leather Goods
It has been the premium choice, this material we call leather, for eons it seems. Fit to adorn the interiors of luxury cars and to create bags with the intent of being well-traveled. Nomad offers a line of genuine leather products, ranging from wallets, case and watch straps.
Dad would be particularly fond of their leather cases for the iPhone. By keeping the design of its leather case to slim dimensions, Nomad has minimized adding width to Apple’s ever-popular smartphone. Curiously enough, when placing my own iPhone inside the Nomad leather case, it transformed it from looking like just a piece of technology to something fashionable and, dare I say, luxurious.
A perfect complement for a premium smartphone.
One Eleven Watches
I’m convinced that a man’s affinity to watches grows with age. As my husband creeps his way to the age of 40, he finds himself admiring more and more the intricacies and details that go into creating a timepiece. One cool representation of this comes from One Eleven Watches.
What we have here is a creation from a group who share a love for travel, nature, and the need to accurately keep time. Their first model – the SW1- features a Japanese movement housed in a 42mm stainless steel case with date function. The watch is solar-powered, as their mission with One Eleven is to reduce unneeded waste returning to earth by avoiding batteries altogether.
The SW1 is an excellent combination of style and nobility in a perfectly compressed package.

Alphabet’s entry into the smart speaker category, the Google Home, wants to bring us closer to the future that so many Hollywood movies eerily predict with accuracy. And while humanity has yet to develop AI like Ex-Machina’s Ava (one of the best Indie films of the last decade), you can talk to your Google Home often.
Does Dad like to catch the weather and traffic before heading out for work? Google Home can provide him with this in addition to recommendations for when to leave home. Does he like to jam to music when arriving home in the evening? Just ask Google Home to play music from any artist, and in seconds its speaker begins to fill the room with sound.
Available at Bestbuy, Target, Walmart, Verizon, and Google Store.
Art of Shaving
There was a time many moons ago, before the invention of electric razors and 5-blade shavers, that man once took pride in grooming himself. Fear not, for the act of becoming dapper continues to exist at the Art of Shaving.
Enrich your father’s skin and sense of style with a Traditional or Royal Shave at a local Art of Shaving store. There, a Master Barber will provide him an experience both relaxing and rejuvenating, using a combination of hot towels, essential oils, and lathers, culminating in the ultimate shave by a straight razor.
It is the right of every man to be perfectly shaved at least once in his lifetime.
