Our Ultimate Father’s Day Guide
Father’s Day – that time of year where you can treat your old man to something that will make him feel special and important. In true Manual fashion we have you covered on what to get your pops from a variety of prices and tastes. We even have an idea of what to get the man who has everything.
– This is the perfect gift to give a dad with a little one (take note wives, uncles and god fathers!)
For Father’s Day this year, Harry’s created a limited edition Father Son Shave Set that includes a razor for dad and a look alike toy for his mini-me. Both the handle and toy handle have the option of being personalized with engraved initials. The shave set also comes with a shave guide written in the style of a children’s storybook. Purchase here.
-While were on the subject of shaving – HYD For Men will help the dad who needs to step up his shaving routine a bit. The HYD For Men Buffer Stick will help prevent ingrown hairs by exfoliating the skin – while energizing and moisturizing. The stick will gently remove dead skin cells and help your dad keep his skin young and fresh. Purchase through HYD For Men.
-For the dads-to-be out there make this an almost-father’s day. Check out Rules For My Unborn Son – a collection of humorous and traditional advice for boys. The book contains tons of useful tips and facts – It even includes a few hangover cures…The sartorial instruction manual is available through Ball and Buck.
-Every dad can appreciate a good pair of socks. Nice Laundry is a program that lets you give your dad a sock-makeover. Nice Laundry will deliver premium pairs of socks straight to your dad’s door. They’ll even arrange for his old ones to be sent away and properly recycled. From wild prints to more traditional styles – Nice Laundry has ’em all. He might not be willing to upgrade his wardrobe, but at least he’ll upgrade his socks.
-Dads sometimes need to elevate their game in the shirt department. Billy Reid makes shirts that work at the office or when helping out at little league. Summertime is the perfect time to rock these classic and casual styles. These staples are made from 100% cotton with barrel cuffs and natural Mother of Pearl buttons. The shirts are also made in Italy, so you know you’re giving him something a little extra-special. If you want to go the extra mile, consider getting him a new blazer. Peruse the collection over at Billy Reid.
-Go crazy and thank your dad for everything he’s ever done for you with a watch that will knock his (new) socks off. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Duo combines history and elegance. This classic timepiece hasn’t changed much since 1931 – except maybe the price. Purchase through Tourneau.
-For a more casual approach – the Hermes’ Cape Cod watch comes in a variety of styles and leather combinations and is perfect for the summer. This steel watch has a quartz movement, a double calfskin strap, and endless cool-factor. Purchase at Hermes online.
-Baseball is one of those sports that just has “Dad” written all over it. The shoe company Eastland recently announced a partnership with Major League Baseball – perfect for any baseball fanatic. Get him a boat shoe or a moccasin featuring his favorite team. There are over 30 MLB teams to choose from including – the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees. Pick up his pair here.
-For the dad who has it all…we thought about this one for a while. If your dad already has all the clothes and accessories he needs, why not donate to a charity? We know dads have a soft spot for animals so we thought we’d get the ball running with a few animal friendly suggestions: Best Friends, Pet Helpers, ASPCA. Other suggestions include: Wounded Warrior Project, St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, and City Harvest. This is one gift you can’t go wrong with.
Whatever you get him this year, make sure he knows how appreciated he is. Happy Father’s Day!
