Buying a gift for Father’s Day can be more challenging than you think. In reality, most Dads are happy with whatever you give them—especially if that thing is a nice bottle of scotch. But if you’ve taken that route before, or are just looking for some new ways to freshen up your gift-giving, look no further. Here’s your 2016 list of gifts to “Make Dad Great Again”
It’s hardly a secret that anyone who owns an iPhone has issues with the battery being…well, less than effective. There’s plenty of external batteries you can buy to give your mobile device a jump, but what better kind of charger than one that fits into a wallet? (Wallets, the original father’s day gift). Slim, sleek, and super useful, this is definitely something your dad will thank you for.
If your father is anything like mine, he will say things like, “It’s not as good as the original.” He probably also says that beer in a can or bottle is just neverrrrr quite as good as beer on tap. If that’s the case, he’s either (A) already tried to install his own kegerator in the basement or (B) has a long bar tab. But luckily for him (and you) there’s a way to get the same bubbly pub pours from any bottle or can. The Fizzics draft beer system uses high-frequency sound waves to create a rich foamy head that enhances the aroma and flavor of the beer.
Us guys love our boat shoes, especially in the summer months. But when boat shoes, summer weather, and feet come together, it’s not always a pretty sight/smell. Swims has created a shoe as uniquely practical as it is comfortable. The Breeze Loafer is an ultra-flexible, ultra-breathable shoe that takes sleek, scandanavian style and combines it with athletic shoe tech, resulting in a trendy-looking loafer that’s quite literally like air conditioning for your feet.
Another innovation from our friends at Swims, the Hybrid Polo has potential to be the ultimate dad shirt. The top 2/3 is your traditional cotton pique, while the bottom third is a hydrophobic polyester blend, providing moisture-wicking. This makes it the perfect shirt to throw on over wet trunks—or for keeping cool on the golf course.
Bluetooth speakers are nothing new, sure, but few do sound quality and cool vibes quite like House of Marley. Yes, the same Robert Marley you are thinking of serves as the inspiration for this completely cool beachy boombox. The Chant BT speakers feature hemp and cotton wraps with bamboo and metallic accents, not to mention an altogether great sound from such a small frame.
