Father’s Day Gift Guide

Friday, June 16, 2017

It’s always tougher shopping for Dad than for Mom, especially since your typical father doesn’t want or need anything that you can’t pick up around the corner. You could probably hand him last year’s gift in an unwrapped box and he’d still be touched by your thoughtfulness. But since every father deserves to be celebrated on this very special holiday, we’ve compiled a few gift ideas for your Father’s Day needs.

  1. QuietComfort 35 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones

Ditch the tiny headphones and give your father this large noise-canceling set that will be impossible for him to drop through the nooks and crannies of his car. They’re perfect for blocking out noise, both at work and at the gym.

Nordstrom, $349.95


  1. Initial Cufflink

Spice up your dad’s dress shirts with a personalized cufflink. These silver jewels with your father’s initials will definitely be a gift he will treasure forever.

  1. Robb Vices Subscription Services
