Father's Day Gift Guide 2017

Now that Mother’s Day is behind us, it’s time to start thinking about Father’s Day. Whether Dad is into technology, fashion or everyday essentials - my list has you covered. Find something as unique as your dad this year for Father’s day to show him how special he is!

The Techy Dad

These headphones are water and sweat resistant, giving dad great sound quality throughout his workout. This piece is adjustable and will conform and be comfortable for any ear shape. The headset gives more than half a day of listening time and is compatible with Android and iOS devices.

The sleek design of this watch features a stainless steel case and rubber strap. This stylish watch easily transitions from corporate life to casual hangout or gym. The LG Watch Sport will count Dad’s steps, track his jogs, monitor his heartrate, and it can even analyze running and cycling stats. If Dad is an Android user he will love the integration of his phone with his new LG Watch Sport. He can still make phone calls, send messages and use his favorite apps – all while his phone is at home!

The Active Dad

The Pure Cycles Urban Commuter bike is perfect for dads on the go. Whether Dad is cutting through rush hour traffic, or taking a quick trip to the store, the Urban Commuter fits into any active lifestyle. This is a solid bike that looks absolutely beautiful. It is both stylish and sporty. It has 8 speeds as well as all-weather stopping power. The dual chain-guard keeps the chain in place over the roughest roads providing Dad with excellent protection. This bike is ideal for the urban dad who is looking for something fast and fun! To pamper Dad, choose the white glove service and have the bike sent fully built or pick it up from your local bike shop. Options to assemble on your own are also available for all the DIY dads!

The Qalo is perfect for the athletic/active dad who has to leave his wedding ring at home while at the gym or out on the trails. The Qalo is a great alternative to his classic wedding ring. With multiple styles and colors, the medical grade silicone wedding ring will fit Dad's active lifestyle.

These board shorts are ADORABLE. They sell father and son shorts so Dad can match his little surfer boy. They come in a number of different parrterns but my favorite is the Starfish Boardie. These shorts are UV protective and block 98% of all harmful rays.

Whether dad is just walking around town, heading to the beach, or hiking to mountain peaks, Keen will have a shoe that is perfect for any of his activities. Dad’s next adventure is out there and Keen has the shoes to take him there. My favorites are the pairs of Daddy & Me matching hiking boots to encourage dads to get out and explore with their kids. These shoes are perfect for all of our active dads!

I love this duffel bag for its small size. Most duffels are large and unnecessarily bulky. This compact bag from jane.com is personalized, versatile and athlete friendly. It has a durable, abrasion- resistant base as well as a sweat resistant carrying handle. With adjustable shoulder straps and zippered compartments this would be a great addition to dads athletic arsenal.

The TRX Pro is one of the most advanced suspension trainers for the fitness minded Dad. It comes equipped with adjustable foot cradles to make lower-body exercises easier and more seamless to perform. It also comes with three different anchor points making it the most versatile suspension trainer TRX offers. The digital road map of workouts to perform in an eight-week program is designed to let Dad fully personalize his workout. The best part about the TRX Pro is Dad can take it anywhere. He can work out at home, in the park, or even in a hotel while traveling.

The Dapper Dad

I can’t say enough good things about this belt. I had it on my fathers day gift guide last year and I just had to have it on my list again. It’s the belt that helps fight global hunger and poverty with every belt sold. This is a no-holes belt that comes in either nylon or leather, as well as a variety of colors. I have gifted these belts multiple times and the recipients continue to rave about them.

This is a subscription-based oral care line that’s sleek and affordably priced. Quip will automatically send brush heads and toothpaste refills every 3-months straight to Dad’s door step, making it quick, easy and seamless. I personally love how compact this toothbrush is. Not only does it declutter the counter but the wall mount also doubles as a travel cap, allowing Dad to easily toss Quip into his bag and re-apply to any mirror or bathroom surface.

I love these ties! With 30 different styles and sizes ranging from newborn to adult these ties are such a cute option for Dad and Son. This is a great gift for Dad to use at his next formal event when he wants to show off his mini me! These can be purchased at jane.com.

Lets face it- backpacks are comfortable but unprofessional, and satchels become uncomfortable on the shoulders but have a sleek office appropriate look to them. The Modern Day Briefcase by The Breton Company is the best of both worlds. It has the comfort of a backpack but the professional appeal of a satchel. It is designed with two leather handles to make it easy and comfortable to carry into a meeting or around the office. The bag has padded shoulder straps and a padded laptop sleeve to make it comfortable to carry on your back when commuting or traveling. Dad will love the versatility of this bag!

The Culinary Dad

For all the foodie dad’s that love to cook, the Mastrad O’plancha, griddle and lid cooking combo will turn every meal into a top chef looking (and tasting) plate. It can be used by itself to cook and fry, or with its lid as a mini oven to braise meat for a grilled and juicy finish. It can also smoke/flavor meat with the included smoking racks. Creating so many different types of meals and desserts, this little griddle really does do it all!

The New Dad

Nuna is a modern, eco-friendly baby gear company that recently launched their suited collection. The MIXX2 stroller + bassinet and PIPA car seat from this this collection are ideal for any new dad. From hand-sewn leather-look accents to elegantly placed stitch lines, each piece of the SUITED collection boasts meticulous attention to detail. I absolutely love the masculine look and feel of this collection. The stroller features compact flat fold options and a true flat sleeper recline seat with an oversized extendable canopy. The chrome black wheels, hand-sewn leather-look arm and push bars are truly tailor-made.
