The decision is final: this is the year we do Father’s Day right. That means no more mugs and forget the gift cards. Together with Coach, we’re bringing you real dad-approved gift ideas, no matter what your dad’s style. Whether he’s totally traditional or fashion-savvy, we went straight to the source on what fathers really want.
Today, we caught up with Brandon Berger, the Chief Digital Officer Worldwide Ogilvy & Mather. Learn more about Brandon–and what’s on his Father’s Day wish list–below.
SF: What’s your name, age, occupation?
BB: Brandon Berger, 38, Chief Digital Officer Worldwide Ogilvy & Mather
SF: How would you describe your style?
BB: This was a hard one, so I asked a few of the women in my office. The result was “laid back swagger.”
SF: What’s on your Father’s Day wish list?
BB: Lightweight Harrison Leather Field Jacket in black. I need a new leather jacket, and a lightweight one is perfect for my travels.
SF: What’s your best Father’s Day memory?
BB: My first father’s day, when I was able to celebrate that I joined the greatest club in the world, thanks to my son.
SF: What are your Father’s Day plans this year? What are you most looking forward to?
BB: I think my father’s day will start just like any other day, which means getting up early with my kids, and consists of making coffee, bottles, smoothies and feeding the dog together. Then we will most likely throw on some clothes and do one of my favorite things which is grab everyone to take the dog for a walk in the park. If I am really lucky, a hike or a bike-ride or some outdoor activity will surround the middle of the day, and then the evening may involve some sort of packing because I think I have an international trip very close to that date.
SF: What do you love most about being a dad?
BB: There isn’t one thing that I love most about being a dad, there are many – My kids, the joy, awe and love I feel for them all the time; how being a dad has made me even closer to my wife; the moment I walk into the door – the reciprocal excitement that my kids and I have to see each other even when we are apart for just a few hours.
