Father’s Day is quickly approaching and if you are anything like me then you have yet to go shopping. Whether you need a gift for your husband, father, brother, friend, or significant other, one, or all, of these five items is guaranteed to put a smile on their face. So check out the list below!


1. Tickets to a sports game– Baseball anyone? Since it is baseball season and most men like all types of sports get them two tickets to a game. You could be the lucky person they bring along, or they can go with a friend. You could also see about purchasing advance tickets for their favorite sports team for the upcoming season. Also to throw in a little extra you sports apparel is always a plus! So pick up a t-shirt, hat, or some memorabilia.


2. Concert Tickets– Men love to be entertained! Get them a pair of tickets to see their favorite artists up close and personal. If their favorite artist does not have a show coming up try putting together a little music box, maybe a collection of music that they love. It could be old records, CDs or DVDs. You know what the men in your life would appreciate it. Listen out for their favorite pandora station to get ideas! (My bf loves Billy Joel lol hence the picture)


3. Day at the Spa– Who says that men do not like to be pampered? Book your favorite guy a 1-hour massage at a local spa to help him really relax from his daily duties. I’m sure they would be very appreciative. If you want throw in a facial (without extractions because they hurt) to give them the total pampering experience.


4. Fitness Membership- Have the men in your life mentioned taking a Crossfit class, boxing, or getting a personal trainer? Help them with their health goals and purchase a one-month membership to a gym of their interest or classes/training sessions to help them get in shape or stay in shape. You could also buy them accessories for an at home gym-not saying buy a treadmill, but the P90X DVD may work with a pull up bar and the Perfect Pushup (Only purchase this if they mentioned it…If not they may think you are trying to say they are overweight and we don’t want that to happen). To put the icing on the cake, purchase some workout gear with the Dri-Fit technology. They will love you for it.

What’s on your radar to purchase the men in your life for Father’s Day?

June brings the 2nd most important of the parental holidays: Fathers Day! I jest but major important shout out to the men that chose to be fathers and are actually taking care of their responsibilities. As a man who grew with his father actually in his life it is a day that should be celebrated larger.. So to help you make an impact though small in your important mans life i compiled a few ideas to help show your love and appreciation.

For the casual drinker:

Sometimes, nothing can take the edge off of a day of stress and work like a nice, stiff drink. Buy your dad  a bottle of  Single Malt Scotch Whiskey aged 15 years or longer and you’ll be able to enjoy it with him on Father’s Day. As the years pile on the palate changes to more smooth sophisticated tastes. It may be less permanent, but nice liquor is a luxury he’s unlikely to give himself. Good-quality liquor is also good to have around for when entertaining.

For the tech savvy:

As the news will tell you everyone & their father owns a tablet or smartphone. So that idea was finished off the last couple of years but you can still capitalize. Pick him up a case for that tablet made from saddled leather or suede. You can also make a custom photo case for his smartphone, choose any precious photo, image or graphic to personalize his device. It shows you know what his interest are and not just focused on yourself.

For the stylish:

Cmon how many ties does Dad need? Step up you gift game and capitalize on the upcoming dog days of summer. Upgrade his summer wardrobe with stylish plaid shorts, canvas belts and vintage polos from such outfits as Banana Republic, American Eagle or even your local Macys with styles like Alfani.

For the business man:

Help dad stay organized with a new briefcase or messenger bag. An organized messenger bag in soft tumbled leather designed with an adjustable fabric shoulder strap not only will keep his papers and documents in tact but look good doing it.

For the new dad:

The new dad deserves some special attention. Embracing his role of both proud papa and mom’s support team leader, when it comes to being a great dad, he’s a natural. Small things like handprint canvas wall print or engraving on photo frames & desk items will show the appreciation for being a stand up individual. A good nights rest is also a great idea but we know those will be far in between.

So on this special upcoming day there are many gift ideas but whatever you choose will be appreciated either because its a good look or it has to be.
