If your dad’s not a regular dad, he’s a cool dad, another pair of argyle socks or a car GPS just won’t cut it this Father’s Day. He deserves a gift that says, “I get your style.” After all, aren’t you glad he’s not the Fanny-Pack Dad? Or Tall White Socks Dad?
For the Do-Good Dad: Give him a Karma-friendly gift like a TOMS gift card: the company donates one pair of shoes to kids in need for every purchase. Plus – they have really great slippers, tees and hoodies.
For the Surfer Dad: If words like “dude” and “bro” are in his vocabulary, celebrate his inner surfer-boy with a pair of board shorts like these Quicksilver Pint It To The Wall Board Shorts ($34.99, down from $49.50). At least they’re not Speedos.
For the Intellectual/Hipster Dad: If cool frames are a part of your dad or hubby’s wardrobe, hook him up with a pair of these cool Warby Parker Roosevelt ($95). Not only are they stylish and well-priced – but the site donates a pair of eyeglasses to someone in need with each purchase.
For the Bowling-Team Member Dad: If dad has his own bowling shoes and bag at home, give him this fun at-home Box of Bowling set ($12.00, down from $40.00).
