We are just a few business days from Father’s Day—Sunday, June 17—which means you will hear your old man say he doesn’t need or want anything for his special day. Yeah, it’s likely that he has it all anyway. So, what do you get your dad, who deserves everything, that will sweep him off his feet and put a smile on his face? Something quirky, out of the box and completely unexpected. Alright, here are some great gifts to get your father for Father’s Day that will blow his mind.

Every cool father deserves a comfortable fit and some hot kicks. These pair of shoes, originally released in 1990, were originally the first “cool” sneakers priced over $100. Today, they are still made in the U.S. and has dad written all over those shoes. I am sure he will get a laugh out of seeing those nifty shoes. Mark my words.

We all know dad works his tail off to support the family and is always busy at work. When does he have the time for his own activities? He doesn’t. That’s why you can bring the gym to him with an under-the-desk elliptical machine that will let him discreetly get his workout in.

 

Goby All-Black Brush Kit ($60-75 at goby.com)

Talk about this. Your dad won’t have to use the same toothbrush head on repeat anymore with this electric Goby toothbrush subscription service. Plus, when it looks this sleek, he’ll feel like Bruce Wayne brushing his teeth. Damn. You know he will just love it.

Who are you kidding? When your dad gets home from a hard day’s work, all he wants to do is eat dinner, watch television, and go to sleep. So why not freshen things up with a universal Logitech control that does it all. Really? Yes, this device connects to all the devices in your house and even to your Smartphone. Wow!

 

Marvel Thor Hammer Tool Set ($99.99 at thinkgeek.com)

Does your dad think he knows it all and can fix anything in the house? Okay, perfect! Coolest. Gift. Ever. If your dad reminds you of powerful Thor when he tightens up screws and hammers nails into the wall, this might be the best gift for him. The 44-piece toolset comes perfectly organized in a toolbox that looks just like Thor’s hammer.

If your dad happens to always lose coins when he pulls something out of his pocket, well, say no more! Now, he needs a cash wallet with a zipper, which is the perfect spot to stash his loose coins and cash. There you go.

 

 Lacoste Men’s Fraiser Sandals ($29.99-69.99 at amazon.com)

Look at these sick sandals. I bet your dad would fall in love with these. Don’t you think he needs something cool to wear when he shuffles down the driveway to pick up the newspaper? For sure.

Your dad deserves a break. So why not help him out at making his own whiskey this year? When he succeeds, he’ll have a totally unique dispenser for the finished product.

The Best Pieces for Memorial Day

by

Smells of charcoal and hamburgers waft through the air, the weather is hot and humid, and kids run around neighborhoods freely on a Monday afternoon. All of this can only mean one thing—it’s Memorial Day. Whether you’re spending the day poolside with your gal pals or wading through a swarm of kids at your neighbor’s BBQ bash, the national holiday is a chance to set the bar for your summer wardrobe. With these unique BBQ ready pieces, you’re sure to be the talk of the grill out.
 


Nothing says summer like a halter dress, but this fun frock screams beach days and Sunday strolls. Simple, yet structured enough to be elegant, this textured dress embodies everything we love about summer trends. The bright colors keep it fun, but the fringe and global pattern will identify you as the trendsetter of the group.

Is it really a Memorial Day BBQ if there aren’t flip-flops galore? This year, stand out from the crowd and pick a pair of strappy sandals instead. This trend hit the runways hard this year, with designers like Jason Wu and Saint Laurent showcasing their take on the lace-up and ankle-strap shoe. If you’re really trying to make a statement, go big or go home with an offbeat color. These sandals in rose gold are sure to have all of your girlfriends oohing and ahhing.

The most important Memorial Day piece, however, is, of course, your fabulous bag. Lucky for you, oversized bags are all the rage this season, so you can bring your dish to the potluck in style. Tote bags won’t cut it this year; instead, invest in a fashion-forward floral print handbag. Perfect for a garden party or neighborhood grill-out, this Kate Spade tote shouldn’t leave your side all summer long.
No matter your Memorial Day plans, show up in style and embrace your favorite summer trends!
