With a week left until Father’s Day, I wanted to put together a last minute Father’s Day Gift Guide with 6 ideas for dad or yourself.
FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2019
All of the brands below I’ve been wearing and using myself in 2019 and so they come highly recommended by me and the Gentleman Within team.
Without further ado, GW’s Father’s Day Gift Guide 2019.
1. GROOMING LOUNGE
The Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia based, Grooming Lounge has its own comprehensive gift guide this year to “help dad look less ugly”.
Tongue in cheek aside, Grooming Lounge, launched back in 1999, develops its own in-house brand in addition to offering a myriad of other popular men’s grooming products.
My recommendation is the GL “Power Shower” Set that will have dad covered with shampoo, body wash, and conditioner. He’ll be the best smelling dad around. I’m finishing up the trio and gotta say that not only does it clean, but also smells really good.
To sweeten the deal, you can enter promotional code GENT15 for an additional 15% off your order.
Some guys love a good craft beer while others prefer whiskey on the rocks. Maybe your dad likes wine too. Join the wine club and help dad discover better wine this year with a subscription to Winestyr.
Or if you’re not interested in subscribing, you can choose from a variety of wine bottles of pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, merlot, syrah, reds, rosés, chardonnays, and more.
For this Father’s Day, I recommend The Ultimate Wine Club Gift for the avid wine drinker. I received a package earlier this year and was blown away by the level of personalization, packaging and wine selection. Also take a look at the specially hand-selected gift collections that you can specifically tailor to dad’s taste.
Whether for yourself or for dad, you’ll be getting acclaimed wines from real producers in a modern, yet elegant packaging with a personalized handwritten note.
3. ROBB VICES
Robb Vices is a lifestyle subscription box with a luxurious twist. From cocktails and wines to hot sauces and jerky, there’s something fresh every month.
If dad enjoys the finer things in life, then Robb Vices might be the kinda gift he’ll appreciate.G
On top of the Robb Vices limited edition boxes they offer individual products in their Vices Reserve shop. My recommendation is Match 1995’s Double Old Fashioned Glasses.
4. FITS SOCKS
Give dad the gift of comfort this Father’s Day. FITS Socks Father’s Day Gift Pack not only looks great in 3 versatile colorways of grey, black, and tan, but also has great moisture wicking properties for extra comfort and breathability.
I particularly like that the the fabric mainly consists of super-fine merino wool that not only keeps your feet comfortable, but cool in the hot weather and warm during cold winters.
- Super-fine Merino Wool: 51%
- Nylon: 36%
- Polyester: 9%
- Lycra: 4%
Looking for products to keep fresh and clean this summer? Hawthorne has got ya covered. They’re a relatively new personal care brand that offers fragrances, bar soap, body wash, and deodorant. Give dad or yourself the gift of personal care this Father’s Day.
What’s great about Hawthorne is that they tailor their products specifically for your skin type, body chemistry, shower habits, and lifestyle. You just answer a handful of questions that should only take a few minutes to complete for yourself or your dad.
I’ve been wearing the personalized fragrances for “work” and “play” since last year and always get compliments when I’m out and about. You can tailor a gift set for dad or pick-up an e-gift card so he can shop at his leisure.
The packaging experience is clean and the products smell really good. It’s always nice to receive a tailored experience, and with Hawthorne you’ll be getting just that after you take the brief quiz so that they can get to know you better. You can try a subscription risk-free and cancel at any time.
6. GREATS ROYALE KNIT SNEAKER
Brooklyn based Greats offers Italian made shoes at a highly affordable price point. The Greats Royale Blanco is one of the most popular white sneakers right now.
When it comes to price, quality, and aesthetic — Greats has an edge on the competition. If dad is more fashion forward, the Greats Royale Knit Collection features six versatile colorways that’s a sure bet as any this summer.
The Royale Knit is Greats’ newest sneaker featuring an Enviroknit yarn upper made from recycled single-use and ocean plastic. Each pair is the equivalent of recycling 7 plastic bottles.
I’ve been wearing my navy pair for a month now. Not only do they look and feel GREAT, but it’s also a mission that I can stand behind.
- Made in Italy
- Enviroknit yarn upper made from recycled ocean and single-use plastics
- Soft & breathable knit weave
- Custom comfort-performance insole
- Easily cleaned with soap and water
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Whether you’re a dad yourself or you’ll be spending time with your own, I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day.
Cheers to your style,
