Think Outside The Tie This #FathersDay: 8 Gifts That Don’t Suck

I’m not sure if anyone really gets their dads ties or ashtrays for Father’s Day anymore. Those gifts may have gone out of style with acid-washed jeans and Hypercolor shirts… wait, those aren’t coming back in style, too, are they? Anyway, the same ol’ gift ideas just don’t apply any longer. Modern dads like technology and entertainment gifts. Today’s dad thinks more about style, whether it’s theirs or their home’s. Not just any gift will do anymore.

We have 8 gift ideas that will blow dad away this weekend and it’s not too late for you to gift; celebrate dad beyond one day a year!

Father's Day

Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag

Father's Day

Maybe this isn’t the best Father’s Day gift because I selfishly want to keep it for myself. The Rose Tree Executive Collection Rolling Carry On Weekender Duffel Bag is mouthful to say but a cinch to carry. This bag is stylish so dad doesn’t have to use the old ratty bag he’s been traveling with for years and it’s lightweight so he can pack a lot in. My favorite feature about this bag is the wheels that make it literally glide and telescoping handle so it’s easy to transport from car to airline gate. This weekender duffel bag is under $100 and as far as we can tell, it’s super durable.

Drink ‘Em If Ya Got ‘Em

Father's Day

This year for my fiancé, I bought a humidor and quality cigars; he’ll be a husband next month so it’s time to class him up. It’s easy to take with us when we travel, just like this Route 66 Flask. I may actually get a matching one; I really love it! I figure it might also be a great gift for groomsmen, too, and maybe even my dad and future father-in-law. 

It features a screw top lid for easy transportation and vinyl cling wrap design and holds 6oz. At under $30, it’s an easy gift for anyone.

Gifts, Ahoy!

Father's Day


Any avid book reader and book lover knows that digital is not always best. I still love the feel of a printed book and I’ll bet dad does, too. We have a sunroom that has coastal decor, so this Nautical Coastal Book Ends set was perfect for our house! And, it’s manly, right? So no dad will be ashamed to display his awesome book collection between these two beauties.

They’re made with painted beach wood style planks and feature great detail in the white hull and the sails of the trade ship. Use them perfectly on your favorite bookshelf or on the fireplace mantle.

The Music Is Strong With These Little Speakers

If your dad does NOT want these iHome speakers featuring R2D2 and C3PO designs, then I’ll take them. All of them. They’re rechargeable, play hours of your favorite music and, well, they’re flipping awesome!

Aren’t You A Little Short To Be A Stormtrooper?

If you’re dad is a Star Wars fan – and who isn’t, am I right? – these Darth Vader and Storm Tropper Salt & Pepper Shakers will ‘kill’ him. They’re the perfect collectible for fans of the Dark Side of seasoning their food.

If You’re Just Tuning In…

I’m a huge fan of this retro style FM/AM Analog Wooden Cabinet Receiver. This is the 40 year Anniversary Special Edition and includes AM/FM Analog Tuning w/ LED Indicator and dynamic bass. The classic walnut finish will go well with any decor.

It’s Electric!

Father's Day

Go ahead! Spoil dad a little this Father’s Day! The Razor E300 Electric Scooter includes everything that parents and teens have loved in the past with new matte grey styling. Dad will love the super high-torque, ultra-quiet single speed chain-driven motor and a handy twist-grip throttle. Once on the move, its ultra-powerful 300 watt electric motor ramps up to 15 miles per hour-fast enough to have fun, but not fast enough to be a menace on the street or sidewalk.

We’re Gonna Need More Power!

Father's Day

Not only is the Goal Zero Yeti 150 Solar Generator awesome looking, but it’s handy ta’boot! It’s ideal for any emergencies, camping, or wherever you need power. It’s completely plug-and-play, silent and fume-free device. This generator is a gas-free source of portable power to keep lights, phones and laptops powered on through any situation.
