For The Dads

Father’s Day, like every holiday that involves giving a gift to a man, is a tough one, especially if you’ve already given the man in your life the whiskey rocks that every gift guide on the planet recommends that you purchase.

And so I present to you: Gifts for Dads that have nothing to do with alcohol. Or golf.



Best Made Co. Rolling Footlocker

I am obsessed with Best Made’s metal containers – seriously, they’re like the definition of functional art. This rolling footlocker can hold vintage vinyl, art supplies, tools…anything, really.


Vessel by Thomasin Pottery

This is what I got for my own father (who I am certain does not read my gift guides): A one-of-a-kind piece by my friend Thomasin, who creates beautiful, rustic, and functional works of art.



I love my Deebot. I mean that: We’re talking real, true love. I named it; I care for it; I talk to it when I’m home alone with it, and thank it for its service.

Deebots for all.


S.S.B. Japanese Chef's Knives

These knives have “hand-scorched Shou Sugi Ban chestnut handles.” I don’t know what that means, but I’ll take it.


Rival Sons Album

Make the Dad in your life feel super-cool by giving him a CD by this classic rock from a modern, on-the-cusp-of-stardom band.


NFL Game-Used Wallet

Yes, wallet = boring; I know.

This wallet, however, has interior dividers made from game-used NFL jerseys. Which, depending on your perspective, is either disgusting beyond words…or really freaking cool.


Meditation Course

Learning to meditate – like, for real – was one of the single best gifts I ever gave myself. This particular course is based in NYC, but there are tons of online courses, and I love the idea of gifting someone with not just an experience, but a skill.


Quickflip Jacket or Hoodie

You know what dads (especially new dads) have a lot of?


This is a hoodie. That is also a backpack.

Stuff problem = solved.


A Masterclass

Phil Ivey teaches poker strategy! Neil Gaiman teaches the art of storytelling! Timbaland teaches BEAT-MAKING.

Come. On.
