Father’s Day is celebrated by Americans on the third Sunday in June. This year Father’s Day will be June 19, 2016. It’s easy to give gifts to a dad. No matter what tie, tie bar, or other assorted tie accessories we toss his way, he always seems grateful and pleased with his gift and ultimately happy to stuff the gift away in the back corner of a drawer someplace. This year, however, think outside of the tie and get your dad something he really wants for Father’s Day. Here are 7 cool Father’s Day gifts that dad will actually love.
7 Cool Father’s Day Gifts:
A cool pair of shoes. Keep dad looking sophisticated and cool with a great pair of shoes. Samuel Hubbard Footwear combines style and comfort so dad’s feet will feel great and he will look great. I recently received a pair of Hubbard Free for review and my husband loves his new shoes. They are fancy enough for his work and stylish enough for meeting friends out for drinks.

Get his favorite scent. Sometimes dads may hold back from splurging on their favorite cologne because it is too pricey. Get it for him and look one of those cool gift packages with the extra goodies in his favorite scent. You might consider Kenneth Cole’s latest fragrance kit – MANKIND Hero as a way to tell your father he’s your hero! The kit includes the fragrance, after shave balm and hand and body wash.
Get that gadget. Undoubtedly he has dropped hints about the latest doohickey he wants. Maybe its a Dremel for his toolbench, or an electronic device to measure the distance to the pin. The modern world is full of gizmos designed to make life easier and menfolk swoon, from smart phones to GPS devices for golfing. Perk up your ears the next time you hit the hardware or electronics store–chances are he is talking the ear off a sales associate about the newest, the latest, the gadgetiest gadget. Take notes and ask questions, when its time to gift surprise him by getting the exact right thing.
Indulge his inner nerdiness. All men have that singular fixation, the one thing that focuses his attention. It might be as obviously nerdy as a collection of old Dr. Who or as sporty as his favorite college football team. Whether it’s a low-number, limited edition maquette or a banner from the National Championship–take time to indulge the interests that make him uniquely him.

Manscaping. Most men won’t shell out extra dollars for manscaping beauty treatments, but the relaxation of an aromatherapy massage or masculine manicure might be the thing he always wanted but didn’t know it. Even if your guy is rough and tumble, a little extra attention and indulgence can make him feel special and cared for. I got my dad a pedicure last year. He said I was embarrassing him when I dragged him in with me but I saw him loving his chair massage and he told me the next day how good his feet felt.
Tickets to that thing. You know the big game, the opening night of that show, that concert of the band he loved when he was sixteen. Some of the best gifts aren’t things, but experiences. Give him the tickets to something he will remember.
Feed the beast. Take time to make his favorite meal from appetizer to dessert. Be it smoked trout or a juicy New York strip steak, chocolate cherry cake or snickerdoodles, make the things that he likes. They even have themed gift baskets for men if you are not able to be there to cook for him yourself. Or if you dad is like most and loves to grill, consider getting your dad some high quality meat and grilling accessories. Dad will be able to do what he loves in style and think of you each time he uses his custom cutting board or flips his steak with those tongs you got him.
