Mom, Dad, & Grad Gift Guide

Spring might be the busiest time of year. Between graduations, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, it seems like we’re always rushing around, looking for that perfect gift. This year, we’ve made gift-giving simple. Check out our Mom, Dad, & Grad Gift Guide to find presents for everyone on your list. The hardest part? Resisting the urge to buy one of each for yourself, too. 

Let your dad know he’s the man with gifts that are thoughtful and practical. Read on for our top Father’s Day picks.

Gifts for Dad 

1. Socks

A man can never have too many pairs of socks, especially when they look as awesome as these. Give your dad’s wardrobe a little pizzazz with red striped socks from J. Crew.

2. Lawn Chair

This zero gravity chair proves not all lawn chairs are created equal. Your dad will love this versatile piece of furniture — just don’t be surprised to find it sitting in the living room next time you’re home. It’s that comfortable.

3. Polarized Sport Sunglasses

You don’t have to pay a boatload for a decent pair of shades. This polarized pair is great for fishing, golfing, yard work, or just relaxing in a lawn chair (ahem … #2). Your dad will feel like an all-star in these versatile shades.

4. Leather Money Clip

This handmade leather money clip is perfect for the no-frills dad. Who has time for a wallet these days? Personalize this money clip with a free engraving of your choice at the Etsy store linked above.

5. Ceramic Starbucks Travel Mug

For a caffeine fix on-the-go, we love this ceramic travel mug. Pair the mug with a pound of your dad’s favorite coffee beans for the ultimate Father’s Day package.

6. Google Chromecast

They say the TV is man’s best friend, and now with Google Chromecast, that friendship just got even better. Show your dad a new world of TV possibilities with this techie Father’s Day gift. Mom might not thank you for it, but Dad certainly will.

7. Timex Watch

Every dad needs a classic timepiece. This rugged Timex watch is perfect for outdoor adventures, yet sleek enough to wear into the office.

8. Golf Balls

Does your dad play golf? We thought so. In that case, gift him some nice new golf balls this year for Father’s Day. If you’ve already given him this gift in the past (it’s a classic, we know) throw in a towel or new pair of gloves for a little extra surprise.

9. Old-Fashioned Shaving Kit

The nostalgia of an old-fashioned shaving kit is something all men can appreciate. This starter kit from Grooming Lounge stirs up images of quaint barber shops and classic style, all for an affordable price.
