16 Cool Gifts Dad ACTUALLY Wants This Father’s Day
Just in case the days and weeks seem to fly by without you even noticing (ahem, guilty) Father’s Day is coming up this Sunday, June 16, and the men we have in our lives deserve a hat tip (and a strong pour of whisky) in their celebration. If you’re seeking out other ideas to celebrate the man in your life this Father’s Day, see below for some creative, and straight up awesome, gift ideas.
Personal Whisky & Water Decanter
Speaking of that strong pour of whisky that dad deserves… Are you getting enough water? Yes? Good. Now, is your whiskey? This decanter for one lets you easily add a splash of H20 to spirits. It also looks neat, even if your drink isn’t. The globe has an inner and an outer chamber, so one can be filled with whiskey and the other with water. When you’re ready to imbibe, pour a finger or two of booze, add a few drops of water, and savor the flavors awakened by the combination. Use it to dilute cask-strength liquors with high alcohol contents, or simply to bring out the subtleties in your favorite bourbon or scotch.

Himalayan Salt Plate & Holder Set with Recipe Book
Himalayan salt has a very stable crystal structure, which allows it to hold a temperature very well. You can chill it to use as a serving platter for sushi, or heat it over a grill or stovetop to cook your veggies. Cooking on salt gives it a greatly enhanced flavor over that of a frying pan. The mineral content in the salt gives it a more nuanced flavor than table salt, and the amount of saltiness it imparts varies with the type of food (moist foods absorb more salt, fatty foods repel it, etc.). Himalayan salt is also long-lasting and naturally antibiotic, needing little more than wiping with a damp sponge after most uses. Whatever you’re serving up, you will be sure to do so with greater flavor and flair.
Make Your Own Hotsauce Kit
To add fiery flavor to nachos, chili, pizza, and more, while raising your metabolism, there’s nothing like a full-bodied hot sauce–and making it yourself can add an extra kick to the mix. Produce a piquant variety of hot sauces with this DIY kit, offering cayenne, ancho, curry, and chili spice packs. Simply follow the instructions, combining the spices with the included peppers, vinegars, and brown sugar to create your own handcrafted condiments. Six bottles and customizable labels let you package and present up to six of your own small-batch sauces that’ll turn up the heat on your favorite foods.
IPA HomeBrewing Beer Recipe Kit
The deck is stacked with a whole lotta hops – Magnum, Chinook, Centennial and Citra. This beer kit provides a smooth malty caramel with a touch of toast, and an intense hop presence with pine, citrus and fruity notes.

Wine Delivery from Winestyr

Winestyr encourages you to “discover better wine”. Through their online shop, you can both purchase unique, hard-to-find wines, and also sign up for their Wine Club. Winestyr is kind of the boss of wine clubs, with the belief that small production wines should be much more accessible.

Ron’s CBD Balm
EcoVessel Reusable Drinkware

EcoVessel uses what they call TriMax triple insulation, keeping your beer cold all day and night and the double barrel insulated beer mug holds the perfect pint, keeping beer chilled and crisp until the last sip … sounds like the perfect pairing!
I’ve always been a fan of buying the men in my life things that they may not buy themselves, but would look ah-maaaaz-ing wearing. Sometimes a man just needs a subtle nudge in the dapper department.
For those occasions where he wants to style it up a notch (or use suspenders for their true intention of holding up pants) consider JJ Suspenders.
Founders Jackson and Josh recognized that shopping for suspenders was painful, and boring. In pursuit of stylish suspenders for a wedding, the came up empty-handed, finding a handful of generic, outdated and overpriced suspenders. In further research, they found out the quality of most suspenders was low, as well.
And so began JJ Suspenders, bringing the world high-quality, handmade items sure to please.
10/10 in support of more men wearing suspenders on the regular.
A friend introduced me to this subscription box, and to be honest, I got it for my husband in a moment where I wanted to get him something nice, but not invest in what could end up being a hefty price for a swanky item. My solution? Sprezzabox.
Sprezzabox is a subscription box for men’s fashion accessories. For $28/ month, Sprezzabox sends a box (retail $100+) to your mailbox. Commonly, a box includes: a tie, socks, and then usually has some kind of lotion or skincare item, and some kind of accessory- like a tie bar, ascot, etc. My husband finally upgraded his wallet thanks to Sprezzabox, but also received a second in his box since first subscribing at Christmas. The boxes generally have a common theme, with color and/or design, so you’re basically upping his style game each month. You can pay monthly ($28), or for 6 or 12 months at a time, where you get a little discount the more you commit. I pay monthly, and like knowing that I can cancel anytime.
If only I’d known these existed, I would have packed them on every family reunion.
