Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18 and if you haven’t grabbed a gift for the fathers (or even father figures) in your life— from your own dear old dad to your best homeboy with a newborn—we’ve compiled a list of items to consider for that special day.
And to make things a little more interesting, we’ve categorized each gift idea by definitive characteristics, because after all, no two dads are exactly the same, right?
If you’re shopping for an avid jetsetter, we have a few options here or maybe Pops is a Jay Z fan—there’s something that’ll fit his tastes in this gift guide, too.
Take a moment, run through our gift guide and bookmark a few things for yourself while you’re here. Be sure to leave the screen up in front of your kids, no need to be subtle.
He’s Always At the Airport
Your pops may travel pretty frequently but he still considers himself low-maintenance, throwing all toiletries in a Ziploc and calling it a day. It doesn’t have to be like this though, beloved. Cop this handy little Travel Kit from the Shinola company (based in Detroit!) and allow your dad a little class when he’s moving around from state to state. Buttery soft leather on the outside and pragmatic canvas within, just in case something springs a leak.
As a grown man, you ought to have at least one respectable piece of luggage, and if you’re always at the airport for one reason or another, then you already know how much wear and tear suitcases end up enduring. Any one of Samsonite’s Silhouette XV Hardside pieces would be the perfect replacement for your father’s old luggage. The Polypro exterior is tough enough to last through countless occasions of careless and rough handling by airline crews. The Tru-Trac wheel system makes the Silhouettes easy to maneuver and the 21″ Hardside is still light enough where he can glide to his gate without struggling with the weight of his bag.
