‘Just put a quarter in me and I’ll give you all the advice you need to know’ – The Fage (aka my dad)
I am sure some daughters (like myself) can relate to having the father that treated you the exact same way he would have if you were biologically born male. The father that taught you ALL the sports, took you fishing, made you bait your own hook, pushed you past your tears, showed you how to chop wood then turn that wood into a raging fire and gave you advice that (although seemed rough at the time) was incredibly beneficial when you recalled it later in life.
My dad, like myself, also LOVES to travel and has a healthy amount of adventure in his life. Typically I like to reward my dad for all of my athleticism, outdoor skills and his general words of tough wisdom with a picture from one of our trips, but this Father’s Day I went a above and beyond and he was thrilled to hear he could go on a little shopping spree to Macy’s.
Whether you’re shopping for your own father, a new father of a little one, bonus father, or grandfather, I’ve partnered with Macy’s to round-up some gift ideas that are sure to knock it out of the park this Father’s Day. Scroll down for my top ten selections including of course… the classic ‘dad jeans’.
For the business traveling dad that wants to look professionally cool while listening to his beats on the plane.
Absolute classic…dad jeans. No dad can live without them and my dad literally selected this exact pair on his shopping spree and he definitely has some strong dad style.
Keep your dad clean and looking sharp, your mom will thank you.
For the Al Pacino dad or the dad who knows how to unwind any day of the week.
If you still live with your dad, this gift is a no-brainer. Buy it for your dad even though it’s secretly for yourself. “Alexa, play Hit Me Baby One More Time by Brittany Spears.” You’re welcome.
Your dad has likely lost an unreasonable amount of sleep pacing back and forth because of you. Treat him with some rest and relaxation for his tired feet.
Help your dad get active and maintain the dad bod with this staple.
After recently having my first-ever pour-over coffee I am a little obsessed and believe this is a real treat for any coffee drinking dad.
For the surfing, hiking or camping dad…help him wet his adventure seeking whistle in style.
My dad currently lives in Florida, so these are perfect for him, but any sun-seeking father needs a pair of shoes for fishing, sailing or the country club.
How are you celebrating the fathers in your life? Comment below at minimum with your best dad joke.
I also want to tell everyone who has lost a father, wants to be a father or who is not in contact with their father, I see you and I am holding space for you this Father’s Day.
This is a handsome life.
