Father's Day is quickly approaching, which means it's time to start scrambling for gift ideas! There are a ton of Father's Day gift guides out there, but I thought I would share some of my favs with you. I don't know about you guys, but I always have the hardest time trying to find presents for my parents... So hopefully this post will help some of you fellow lost gift seekers out there!
"Call me Old Fashioned" Canvas
If your dad is an avid whiskey drinker (like mine) he will love this canvas, especially if he has his own bar area. Although, I think this gift would be mom decor approved... I think it's pretty stinkin' cute! You can find this cheeky canvas through Austin local, Katie Kime, here.
Vintage Whiskey Glasses
And here we have another whiskey inspired gift idea! I love this option because you can really find your dad something special and unique, which will definitely land you in the favorite child slot for the year. From timeless crystal to retro glasses that come in every color, Etsy has a plethora of choices. You can go with just glasses or take it up a notch and find a set with a matching decanter... because, YOLO. This particularly stunning crystal set can be found here.
Over the last few years my dad has REALLY gotten into grilling and smoking all the things. So while trying to come up with some gift ideas a cookbook popped into my head. I did some research and this book is actually #1 rated on Amazon for grilling cookbooks... And just so happens to be written by Aaron Franklin, the owner of the insanely famous Franklin Barbecue here in Austin. Also, I would like to point out that (especially if you live in Austin) this book would look pretty badass on display in a shelf or on a coffee table. I ordered a copy for my dad (sorry if you read this and spoil your gift, Pop) here.
A French Press Coffee Maker
I actually don't particularly enjoy coffee (I know I'm a lunatic), but from what I've heard it's impossible not to fall in love with the French press. Apparently you can control the flavor and strength of the coffee so you can tailor each cup to one's own individual taste. Not to mention this shiny little beauty would look pretty cute on a coffee bar cart... If you use bar carts for that sort of thing. The French press shown above is super popular with a bunch of great reviews and can be found on Amazon here.
A Pair of Slippers
So my dad literally has no shame and will run errands in his slippers just for the sake of comfort. I guess if us girls can wear Ugg boots than he's allowed, but it would definitely be an improvement if he wore some more socially-acceptable looking ones like in the photo above. Allen Edmonds makes those particular slippers and according to reviews they are super comfortable. Only complaint is that sizing is very specific and could be a little off, so I'd probably just do some research about what size your Dad needs before ordering. You can get these slippers here and they are currently $57 (instead of $149) with free 2-day shipping and returns!
Dad's are pretty freakin' awesome (especially mine) so I guess they deserve cool presents every now and then. I hope these gift ideas are helpful for you guys and you're able to get your dad something he will love for Father's Day this year!
