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 Atlanta-based dad Jonathan Hartley, the CEO of Carousel Designs. Learn more about Jonathan–and what’s on his Father’s Day wish list–below.

SF: What’s your name, age, occupation?

JH: Jonathan Hartley, 37, CEO of Carousel Designs

SF: How would you describe your style?

JH: Traditional and slightly boring, I’m sorry to report. For example, whenever I hear a song I like or see some piece of furniture I like—the song was popular 10 years ago and the piece of furniture probably doesn’t match anything in our house.

SF: What’s on your Father’s Day wish list?

JH: I’ve had the same card carrier/money clip for 10 years and I haven’t replaced it because I have not found one similar to it. Well, this is it and the Coach Bleecker looks perfect!

SF: What’s your best Father’s Day memory?

JH: My first one. Being a dad is so rewarding, exciting, challenging… all of the above! The first Father’s Day was a reflection on the all of the huge changes that had occurred in the past year mixed with that sense of accomplishment.

SF: What are your Father’s Day plans this year? What are you most looking forward to?

JH: We will be at the beach. Probably my most favorite place to be when I’m with my family. It’s the best.

SF: What do you love most about being a dad?

JH: As a father I feel more alive and challenged than I ever have in my life. That feeling is what I love most.
