Thoughtful Gifts For Dad on Father's Day

Lest you forget, Father's Day falls on June 16.

The holiday honoring matriarchs around the world has come and gone, which means Father's Day is fast approaching.

Just like mom, dad can wear many hats—he can be a home cook, a businessman, a casual yachtsman, or an amateur golfer. Whatever this special man's interests are, here some thoughtful gifts he's bound to appreciate:

Montblanc Nightflight Trolley


Dads tend to be very practical people, so when it comes to long-haul flights, they want travel staples they can rely on. This compact piece of luggage not only has a sleek design, but it's also very functional. It comes with dedicated compartments for all his essentials, a TSA lock, and wheels with 360-degree rotation. What's not to love?

Dyson Pure Cool Me Personal Purifying Fan


You could also give him something for his home office, his man cave, or even his bedside table. This personal fan from Dyson incorporates an air control system that filters air and dispels a steady stream of purified air. Studies show there is pollution indoors, too—pollen, allergens such as dog and cat hair, bacteria, mold, and other ultrafine particles—and this mini device can keep intimate spaces clean and safe.

Available at leading department stores nationwide

Givenchy Gentleman Cologne


A safe option that he is bound to appreciate is a new scent to add to his grooming arsenal. This offering from Givenchy is an ode to all the classic men out there who appreciate the finer things. It's vibrant, slightly musky, and possesses notes of iris and rosemary.

These are perfect for days spent on the beach or out at sea. For a more personal touch, made-to-order slip-ons that may be marked on the heel with your old man's name.

Present the man who loves to get behind the grill with something new and innovative. The Joule Sous Vide might seem small and unimpressive at first glance, but it packs a punch when it comes to preparing a mouth-watering set of steak. It can also be used to heat other food ingredients such as fish and chicken to the ideal temperature with its unique Predictive Cooking feature. Simply pair it with your smartphone and place the Joule in a pan with meat. Then, the phone app will update him on its status with a Visual Doneness feature that predicts what's going on inside.
