Father's Day List

Father's Day is just around the corner. Here's a quick list of ideas in a variety of price points. Some are traditional, like the tie, while others are more creative and whimsical.

The QuietComfort® 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling® headphones are a perfect gift for Dads who travel often. No more annoying neighbors in the airplane seat with these headphones. From Bose at $349.

If you’re going to give Father a tie, it might as well be Hermes. This navy polka dot silk twill tie is the quintessential statement of elegance. From Bluefly at $162.

For the classic Dad, the Men's Limited Edition Authentic Original Boat Shoe is a perfect gift. Ideal for boating or the beach. From Sperry Top-Sider at $120
These are so much fun! He’ll be thinking about YOU all day when he wears these collar stays. Hidden message collar stays from Red Envelope at $39.

According to the Orvis website, Natural Dominica Bay Rum aftershave is for the refined gentleman. Murray at my local Orvis store says that he can't keep this in stock; it sells out immediately as soon as it arrives. $15

You've heard the expression that the best things in life are free. Show your Dad how much you care with a handmade card and baked goods like a strawberry rhubarb pie with fresh ingredients from the local Farmer’s Market.

What is at the top of your list for Father's Day?


  1. I actually got my husband those earphones for Christmas, he LOVES them!! Luckily, we don't have kids, so I'm off the hook for Father's Day! Good luck with your choices!!

  2. after my plane adventure to KOP I'll take the Headphones for myself. But I love the ideas and I think I'll go for the original boat shoes. He does need a new pair and Columbia shirt to boot. All those fishing trips have worn out the shoes.

  3. must find a strawberry rhubarb pie! YUMMY!

  5. Mmm - that pie looks yummy! My dad is hard to shop for, so I love your list of ideas. BTW, I just found your blog via another blog I follow and like it a lot. Have a good day! :-)

  6. I also thought about getting my Dad a nice Cutco knife. Just an idea!

  7. Great gift ideas! I've been making my dad a scrapbook for this year, with all of our memories since I was born (we are very close). However I'd like to buy him something too...the headphones are a good idea!

  8. Perfect selections, all of them. We're doing the homemade baked goods for Father's Day here at the Prepatorium, crossing our fingers all goes according to plan!

    Sending you a smile,

  9. I really love that design of Sperry's! So cute.

  10. My hunting and saltwater fishing Daddy is happy with anything from Bass Pro Shop or LL Bean... Basic as you can get!

  11. Great ideas! I love sperrys!
