Our Father’s Day Gift Guide has neat stuff for all Dads: the highbrow, the hipster and everyone in between!

Pictured above, top row, from left:

main_item_la-matera-on-taigan-trucha-wallet.jpgLa Matera’s Trucha Wallet is handcrafted in Italy with tanned Calfskin leather and then combined with a handsome Argentine woven fabric. This wallet is the perfect combination of refined Italian style and rugged South American charm. Dad will love it.


This cobalt blue needlepoint cap from Harding Lane is perfect for the preppy pop. The sail cloth material is topped with a hand stitched seagull and finished with a brass clasp.


For the traditional dad we recommend this striped tie from Bird Dog Bay. The conservative pattern is perfect for the dad that hasn’t hopped on the whimsical print bandwagon quite yet.


Everyone loves Fritz Orr’s paddles. He’s been recognized by everyone from Town & Country to Vogue as being the ultimate craftsman.  In addition to being the coolest paddles around they are also works of art and would look great on a wall in dad’s office.

Second row, from left:

main_item_heritage-handcrafted-on-taigan-celebration-box.jpgThe “Celebration Box” from Heritage Handcrafted is made from old whiskey staves. Boasting space for glasses, dad’s favorite liquor and a humidor, this box is the perfect vessel for all of his beloved vices. Fill it up with his favorite bourbon and few cigars for a gift he’ll never forget!


Jack Spade’s Messenger Bag is great for a more casual work environment. We love the waxed linen with leather accents and the durable shape.


This Nickel Morning After Gel is perfect for the new dad. Up all night with a baby and still need to look fresh? Not a problem with this rescue gel! This miracle potion shocks your skin back to life with the help of caffeine and menthol-enriched coffee complex reactivates–everything you need to save face.


We believe that all dads should carry a handkerchief… You never know when a little one will have a runny nose of when mom’s eyes need dabbing. These sets of three by Izola makes that theory a bit more fun with playful patterns and sayings.
