fathers-and-sons

Father’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like us you’re currently scrambling to find the perfect gift for Pops.  But like fathers, not all gifts are created equal, and you don’t want to be the one who drops the ball this Father’s Day.  So, like we typically do, we decided to save your ass if you’re struggling for that perfect gift.  We’ve got something for every dad to enjoy, so sit back, click along, and pat yourself on the back: your shopping is almost over. 

Blackburn Saddlebag Cooler

For the Dad on the go

blackburn-bike-cooler-local_cooler_bag

For the cycling enthusiasts in the bunch.  Whether your dad wants to load it up with beers for the lake, or bring the groceries home via his ten speed, whatever’s inside is going to be just as cold when he arrives as when he left.  Plus, you’re encouraging dad to get out there and pedal around, which is only going to keep him around longer.  It’s basically the gift that keeps on giving.

Jack Erwin

For the Stylish Dad Who Appreciates Giving Back

Jack-Erwin-Fathers-Day

Jack Erwin, one of our favorite shoe brands, is making it real easy to kill two birds with one stone this Father’s Day.  Get your dad an awesomely stylish pair of kicks, and Jack Erwin will donate a pair to Career Gear, helping those in need get dressed for the workforce.

Aside from the all around do-gooder feeling you and your Father can share from this purchase, you’ll also be happy to know your dad will never have to wear oversized chunky loafers to the office again.  And it will cost you half the price you’d assume by looking at them.

Jack Erwin, prices vary by style.

Tommy Bahama and Maui Jim

For the Dad Who Likes to Play in the Sun

Maui-Jim

Dad a golfer?  Beach enthusiast?  Master of his deck and grill?  Whatever his outdoor activity may be, help him save his eyes from the glare and treat him to a classic pair of Maui Jim’s.

Maui Jim has been known as an iconic island life brand for years, and due to their new retail partnership with Tommy Bahama it’s easier than ever to find a pair you love.  You can peruse the entire collection, or save yourself even more time and go with one of the three pairs we’ve already selected for you.  Whichever you choose, your father is sure to appreciate the island life retiree feel, even if he’s still workin’ the 9-5 for a few more years.

Reserva de la Familia by Jose Cuervo

For the Dad Who Likes to Party

Reserva-Bottle-new

Nothing says “I love you, and thanks for putting up with my shit for years,” like a good bottle.  The norm is a nice bottle of Scotch, but normal is boring.  Switch it up and pour padre a delicious glass of Jose Cuervo’s new Reserva de la Familia.  It’s damn good tequila, and there are limited amounts of it, so hurry up.

Plus, like the name states, this shit is the family reserve.  The good stuff.  Your dad will thank you for it– probably in a drunken heart-to-heart several hours after you give it to him.

Reserva de la Familia, $150.

Timex

For the Dad Who’s All About the Details

Timex-Weekender-Reversible

A great, stylish watch doesn’t need to cost you upwards of two months rent.  These Weekender watches from Timex go with damn near everything, are great for casual summer months, are reversible, and only run you $36 (but dad doesn’t need to know that).  Give him the watch and let him switch out the bands as he likes, it’s the perfect gift.

Timex Reversible Weekender, $36.
