Forget a tie or a coupon for a round of golf, these Father’s Day gifts are sure to impress dad. Ranging in price from $25- $150, and in no particular order, here are Ashley’s top gift picks for Father’s Day.
Flipjacks from Southern Tide: These super-durable flip flops are sure to keep your dad styling and comfortable this summer. As an avid supporter of small businesses, I highly recommend you see if a local retailer carries them (if you are in my part of the world, check out G Harvell Men’s Clothier), but if you can’t find one, you can order them directly from SouthernTide.com. ($69.50- $75.00)
Patio/Deck Cooler Stand: If you are handy (or know someone who is), you may want to try out this DIY project. Lumberjocks.com has some basic information about the project. I think a dark stain and some caster wheels would make this already awesome gift idea even better. ($150)
Monogrammed Fotostrap: If the dad in your life is never too far from his DSLR, this may be the perfect gift. This camera strap from Monogram Lane has a stylish, vintage feel. This can take up to 3 weeks to ship, so you may want to contact the retailer to make sure dad will get it in time, or give him a picture of his awesome gift and wait it out. If your father is a photographer, we think this one is worth the wait. ($85.00)
Monogrammed Steak Brand: Since we, here in the South at least, love anything that is monogrammed, how about getting your grill master his very own monogrammed steak brand. It also comes with a matching carving board. They are made in the USA and add a rustic sophistication to backyard barbeques. Available from Williams & Sonoma. ($39.95)
DIY Beer Tower: I have seen several variations of this idea on Pinterest. It is an economical gift option that dad is sure to love. A 24-pack of dad’s favorite brew, some cake circles, and ribbon, and you are good to go. If your dad isn’t a beer man, feel free to use soda instead. Tuck some gift cards and sweet notes in between the layers to make it a complete gift. ($25)
