Father’s day is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to honor and celebrate that special dad in your life. He’s hardworking, never thinks of himself, and is more than likely also the world’s hardest person to shop for…. until now. We’ve put together a list of some gift ideas your dad will love, show him how much you care, but also make a difference in the world we live in by empowering others - just as he’s empowered you.
For the Classic Dad
No trendy button downs for this dad. He’s loyal to his Plain White T and it will forever stay that way. He’s practical, keeps things nice and simple, and it’s probably time for an upgrade. Lucky for you, Krochet Kids recently came out with a standard Tee line your dad will love. It’s high quality, has a superior fit, and best of all, your purchase empowers women in Lima, Peru to rise above poverty. The Standard Tee is $20 and comes in three colors: White, Black, and Gray. The Classic Dad Trifecta.
For the Creative Dad
The creative dad lives for the moments he spends with his kids, and he loves documenting these moments to cherish forever. Father’s Day is the perfect time to get those pictures off his device and into his life. Queue in Artifact Uprising. Artifact Uprising is inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible, and allows your family’s photos to make their appearance simply and beautifully on his desk, his office, the coffee table, or on the dashboard of his car. Make him a reclaimed wood clipboard calendar, a high-quality hardcover photo book, prints, a mini album filled with photos straight from his Instagram, or even postcards for grandpa.
Artifact Uprising uses all recycled, sustainable materials; made right here in the USA, and assembled by developmentally disabled adults - giving them employment and empowerment.
For the Adventurous Dad
Whether it’s fly fishing in the Eastern Sierras or a weekend trip to San Francisco, this dad’s favorite part about being a father is showing his kids the world. He lives to enjoy the great outdoors, make memories, and share the gift of adventure and travel with his children. This Father’s Day, help him get ready for his next adventure by giving him some of the gear he needs to get there. The Parker Clay Weekender Bag is made of high quality premium leather and durable to sustain a lifetime of weekend adventures.
All of Parker Clay’s products help lift women out of the commercial sex industry in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and provide them with employment, rehabilitation, counseling, and skills training.
For Dad the Coffee Addict
This dad loves his morning coffee ritual. He wakes up before the sun to enjoy the quiet while he slowly and meticulously brews his daily cup. This simple time is what anchors and propels him into his day, and few rituals are as important or consistent as coffee in the morning. Father’s Day is a great opportunity to join dad in his ritual, learn more about the art of coffee, help him spice up his morning routine, and even start enjoying a new hobby together. On Saturday, June 13 (the weekend before Father’s Day), FLDWRK is partnering with Bear Coast Coffee to bring you and your dad a Coffee Education & Tasting Workshop. Surprise your dad with a Saturday morning out together enjoying your coffee and learning about it too - from new brewing methods to cold brew and cafe tonics. You can sign up here and print out the ticket for his Father’s Day Card!
For Dad the Foodie
What better way to show your dad you love him than with food? We love trying out new local eats and supporting local businesses, so we’ve come up with a list of places we think dad would love. For the 21+ father/son or daughter duo, try some new beers and board games (yes, board games) at the new Barley Forge Brewery in Costa Mesa. For the barbecue lovers, head over to Smoqued BBQ in Orange for tri-tip and fried pickles. For the All-American burger-loving Dad, go out for some gourmet burgers and salted pistachio shakes at the delicious Crow Burger in Newport Beach, or some honey cinnamon sweet potato fries & cowboy burgers at Eureka! Burger in Huntington. And last but certainly not least, you can never go wrong with some good old-fashioned beer and waffles at the Iron Press (locations in Costa Mesa & Anaheim).
Happy Father’s Day!
