Gift Guide for Father's Day

Sally GallerComment

Dads, step-dads, father figures unite; Father's Day is Sunday 21st June! Have you already bought something special for your papa bear? Give yourself a pat on the back, you organized person, you! Haven't thought about it yet? Here are a few ideas to get you started...

A handmade money clip is something he might not already have, and all the dads we know love a practical yet thoughtful gift! For the homebirds, choose the clip featuring our great state. For the traveler, the clip with a brass Earth should do nicely. $35, available in store.

A beautiful brass, silver, or copper key chain is something simple yet special. We've got lots of different sizes featuring different quotes and engravings -. our favorites are the John Muir quote and the brass waves. The best bit is that they look even cooler as they age (but can still be polished and spruced up!). $16, available in stores.

If he wears a suit to work (or just for special occasions), how about a handmade wooden tie bar? We've got a selection from McAdams Co. in San Diego, which come in skinny or wide sizes, in walnut, cherry, or maple. $26, available in store. 

A new tee shirt for the weekend is always a good idea. We love this army green tee by Simka Sol featuring a buffalo, or is it a mountain range? Made with an American Apparel fine jersey tee, it's super soft, cool, and perfect for Father's Day! $30, available in store. 

The Hennessey button down by Tank Farm ticks a lot of boxes: comfortable, versatile, and it looks great! It can be worn unbuttoned over a tee-shirt, buttoned up for a smarter look, with shorts or jeans... a welcome addition to any guy's wardrobe! $66, available in store. 

Brighten up his man cave with an up-cycled Graffiti Glass lamp! Made in Oakland, CA from recycled liquor bottles, they're statement pieces that will look great anywhere. We love our lamps made from recycled tequila bottles - with antique fixtures and an Edison style bulb, they don't even need a lampshade. From $68, available in store. 

Don't forget the card!
