2018 Father's Day Gift Guide

by Myron Mariano

Wonderful presents for the notoriously difficult to gift—dads

Green Travels

Sure, becoming a dad means that you now have to get an SUV. But this hunk of a vehicle isn’t your only option when exploring urban areas—or dropping the kids off to school. Consider an e-bike with a cargo capacity of up to 220 pounds. Its Shimano Steps motor kicks in when you’re trying to go up steeper-than-usual streets or whenever you’re just cruising.

Good Reads

A pair of thin reading glasses that he can slip in his wallet, shirt pocket, or even his smartphone, come in very handy in more situations than he thinks. Flash Card and Glasses

Happy Soles

A fresh pair of sandals—one with a microfiber lining and a comfortable nylon toe post—never fail to go unappreciated, especially during the season of exposed feet. A portion of all proceeds goes to the Ama OluKai Foundation, a private Hawai’i non-profit that supports groups working to preserve the island’s rich culture and heritage.Nalukai Sandal

Good for a Getaway

Whether the giftee is new to the game or is enjoying the fruits of retirement, any dad would appreciate a practical travel bag for weekends away with mom. It unzips completely, allowing its contents to be hung in the hotel room closet. HellyPack Bag

Cool Dogs

Hopefully, by now, pops has gotten away from those garish white socks that he used to wear all the time. If not, do a purge, and present him with these comfortable merino wool no-show socks. Once he puts on a pair, he’ll wonder why it took him so long. Topless Stripe No Show Hidden Light

Gone on a Quest

Retro—which basically means everything that was cool and hip when your dad was your age—always finds its way in the radar of contemporary trendsetters. Exhibit A: This canvas satchel is as handsome today as it was when Indiana Jones slung a similar styled number as he searched for buried treasure and death-defying adventures.

Handsome is Forever

A 2017 survey of American men found that only a third of them use a skincare regimen. Improve the statistics, starting with your old man, with this uncomplicated and easy-to-use line that checks all of his basic grooming needs. Skincare Set

A Cuppa Comfort

Men who have newborns know the struggle too well: When the bundle of joy finally falls asleep, it’s time to catch up on everything else. Don’t waste time waiting for a cup of tea to steep. These single-serve, instant organic teas taste great without the need for added fillers, preservatives, or sugars. Empty a tea stick in a 12-ounce glass of hot water, stir, and savor—until you hear crying from the baby monitor. Lemon Black Tea

Whimsy in the Drawers

This Father’s Day-exclusive release is inspired by many a man-of-the-house’s ultimate solitary treat: Fishing. It features flat-out seams, moisture-wicking properties and a relaxed fit. Ultra 2-Pack Boxer Brief

Light Dressing

Dads may not need to use this ultra-lightweight vest right now, but for the remaining three seasons, this would undoubtedly be his go-to layer. The PlumaFill insulation ensures the best warmth-for-weight ratio and protection against water and wind. But the best part is that this packs on itself, ready to be carried to a new destination.
