Father’s Day is this Sunday! I love celebrating my dad — he’s alway the hardworking, caring jokester in the background.
I never really had an experience with a grandpa — both of mine passed before I could get to know them. But something I think that holds true regardless is that dads like experiences. We’ll probably go on a hike to celebrate, but other fun things to do might be take a golf lesson, go fishing, plan a road trip or go camping, head to car show, or maybe see something new that just hit theaters. Just as I did for Mother’s Day, I recommend checking Groupon for deals on local events and classes. Giving a little something just to show appreciation is great too, so I collected a few affordable items. If you want to purchase a traditional gift or maybe supplement an experience with a purchase, here are some things to choose from!
The Underground Railroad ($17)
Books are great gifts for the dad or grandpa in your life! This one is a chart-topper about a young slave’s struggle for freedom during the late 1800s. It’s gained heavy acclaim since its release last August — talk about the perfect beach read! Also, 10% off your Barnes & Noble order with BESTDAD.
Key fobs are a special gift because they a) help people more easily find their keys, and b) will always thoughtfully remind your dad that you(!) gifted him something each time he drives his car. The founder of Chappy Happy — Hilarie — started her company to honor her dad’s legacy. What a perfect place to pick up a Father’s Day gift!
I really love Sugarfina, and this Vice Collection is decadence in a box. It features Malt Scotch Cordials, Pale Ale Pints, and After Dinner Caviar — amongst others. For the guy with a sweet tooth, this is sure to please!
Any dad can use a new pair of shoes. Personally, I love when my pops is well-dressed even when he’s rocking jeans. These are sophisticated and available for an affordable price.
Boatside USA only started a few months ago, but they’ve produced some really high quality items like these clean-cut leather flasks. I like the crossed rope detailing — definitely something a grandpa would enjoy!
Good coffee is hard to beat, and pour over is the best. Your dad will love tinkering with different beans to get the best cup o’ Joe, and the copper can be monogrammed too! Get 20% off with code LOVEDAD.
Very Trouble Child has some suave leather goods, including overnight bags, briefcases, and these phone cases. You can add a monogram for a personalized touch! Plus, their prints are so unique.
For the traveling man, this little kit is the perfect fix for red-eyes and long flights. He’ll look business-ready after cleaning up with a mini bottle of shaving cream, after-shave, body wash, and face wash.
A new collared shirt is always a great gift. I love how bright and classic these options are! Also from vineyard vines, receive a complimentary limited edition tie with any $250 or more purchase using code FD2017.
Wishing all the fathers and grandpas out there a Happy Father’s Day!!
