Dads can be hard to shop for. They want to play it cool. They think if they ask for too much, they're high-maintenance; if they ask for too little, they don't care. When it comes to Dad, finding a gift that's the perfect middle ground between thoughtful and useful is key. To help in your hunt for that perfect Father's Day gift, we've put together a list of products that are practical, functional and meaningful.
Treat your dad to a clean shave. Featuring a light patchouli scent, Taylor of Old Bond Street's Jermyn Street shaving cream is calming, allergen-free and formulated for sensitive skin. Combine that with a 4-piece shaving set from Il Ceppo. Amazingly soft to the touch, Kontex towels are made in Imabari, Japan from 100% organic cotton.
Maybe your dad is the dressier type, always on the go but always mindful of his appearance. New to Örling & Wu are Void watches, which feature a discerning look that celebrates Swedish design heritage. A Redecker suede brush and shoehorn make for a pair of beautiful yet functional gifts. For something that will last the test of time, consider a Carre Royal genuine calf leather wallet.
There's nothing more long-lasting and practical than a Midori traveler's notebook
. The leather cover, available in brown or black, will scratch and scuff over the years and add character to a notebook that will last a lifetime. Interchangeable inserts allow for endless customization; that's value that any Dad will love.
