Since Father’s Day is only three weeks away I thought I’d put together a Father’s Day gift guide. It’s always hard to shop for the man that has everything, but I’ve rounded up a few ideas that you may not have thought of or that your dad my not have treated himself to yet. I’ve put together a few different items for all types of dads – from the grill master, the techie to the coffee lover and a few other classic father’s day gifts.

The Grill Master : A clean and classic leather apron and oven mitt and a new set of BBQ tools will surely impress the other rival dads. Elevate his BBQ game with a wood chip smoker – because have you ever smelled cedar on the grill or tasted the smokiness it adds to your food?!?! Simple gifts all under $100!
The Homebody : Print off some family photos and put them into a gallery wall frame set – you can hang them with dad or let him do it himself as all dads love a good project. Or get him a cozy robe, some reading socks or the comfiest UGG slippers to maximize his comfort levels at home.
The Techie : A self cleaning water bottle – it cleans itself and the water in it – the future is now. Give him the gift of a smart home with a Google home or smart plugs/switches so he can control his house from his phone or by simply dishing out commands to google. The Marshall speaker is a great touch for any dad who was ever into rock music ( most dads ) and this one is voice activated as well! AirPods because as much as dad loves you, he sometimes doesn’t want to hear you – or would love to take these with him to the gym or on a run!
The Whiskey Drinker : A great whiskey decanter set is essential for the whiskey lover. A cocktail smoker will allow him to infuse some more flavours into any cocktail. A large ice cube tray – the larger cubes melt slower so his drink won’t get watered down as fast.
The Coffee Lover : The classic Yeti rambler mug will keep his coffee warmer longer at home. The ember travel mug will heat it while on the go. A Chemex pour-over coffee maker is great for the dad who wants something more complex than single use coffee pods plus it looks great on the counter or an open shelf. For those summer days? A portable cold brew kit!
The Outdoorsman : The Yeti cooler – the best of the best. A Patagonia trad-cap and backpack because who said you can’t look cool while camping and a utility knife because they always come in handy.
Other Classic Gifts : A classic wallet, watch or set of tie clips because if you have good taste – you probably can’t go wrong in selecting one to up his style. Classic Rayban Aviators or Clubmaster sunglasses will also look great on the wood catchall organizer. A classic Herschel duffle for the dad on the go and the comfiest shorts from Lululemon that every man should own. A beard grooming kit or any skin care kit because sometimes dad’s don’t treat themselves. A record player for the nostalgic dad that misses the way music sounded on vinyl.
