10 Father’s Day Gift Upgrades For Last Minute Shopping Klaudia Tirico
With Father’s Day less than a week away, the procrastinator in us is officially freaking out to find the number one man in our lives the perfect gift. There are plenty of obvious options (DVDs, BBQ accessories, etc.), but those just scream, “Hey Dad! I got this at the last minute!” No matter what he is in to, these upgrades from your ordinary gift options are easy to get before June 16th, but have at least a month’s worth of thought behind them. Now you have more time to plan a fun-filled day with dad.
Birchbox Man > Grooming Gift Set Klaudia Tirico
Skin care and/or grooming sets aren’t exactly a man’s idea of an awesome gift, but you know he won’t run to the nearest beauty supply store for his necessities. A subscription to Birchbox Man is the perfect solution. Once a month, he’ll come home to a variety of hair, skin and grooming samples to try. Plus, cool non-beauty related goodies, too! This might even strike up the courage to hit up the grooming aisle on his own from time to time. Win-win!

Tool Roll > Tool Box Klaudia Tirico
Tool boxes are such an ordinary Father’s Day gift, don’t you think? Plus, we’re sure he has more than enough to go around. We love this stylish Shelter Tool Roll as an alternative. The light leather case will house his most important tools for when he needs to play Mr. Fix It on-the-go.

Cooling Towels > Gym Clothes Klaudia Tirico
The active dad will love these cooling towels from Mission when he’s out playing sports, at the gym, or even doing yard work outside. They activate when wet (whether it’s with water or sweat) and keep the body cool to increase athletic performance. The lightweight fabrics are machine-washable and come in a variety of great colors. Plus, they have a Ultra Violet Protection Factor of 45+ so dad is cool and protected in the summer heat.
Mission Enduracool Large Cooling Towel, $14.99
Mission Enduracool XL Mesh Cooling Towel, $19.99
Apple TV > DVD Box Set Klaudia Tirico
Sure, a box set of all of his favorite Clint Eastwood flicks is cool, but how many times will he actually watch them before getting bored? Apple TV offers a variety of different programs to watch new and old movies, sports and even YouTube videos in his man cave. He can even share his iPhone and iPad photos and videos with his friends right on his TV.

UP by Jawbone > Gym Membership Klaudia Tirico
You really don’t want to hint at telling dad that he is out of shape and in need of a gym membership. The next best thing? This super-cool wrist band from Jawbone that shows him exactly what he needs to work on to stay healthy. This handy gadget monitors his movement, sleep and food intake. Plus, it even acts as a “silent” alarm clock so he doesn’t wake up anyone else in the house when he’s off to work so early in the morning. It comes in a variety of different colors and is sleek enough to wear with anything.

Sportman’s Grill > BBQ Accessories Klaudia Tirico
He’s a pro on the backyard grill already, so there is no room for updating his skills there. So why not let him show off his grilling expertise on the go with this cool Sportsman’s Grill by Lodge. It’s perfect for tailgating and camping trips with the guys.

Luxe Safety Razor Kit > Boring Electric Razor Klaudia Tirico
There are only so many electric razors you can gift your pops on special occasions. This year, give him a chance to go a bit old school with his shaving routine with this safety razor kit featuring a shave bowl, badger brush and luxe shaving soap. It’s all housed in a dapper box that can even double as a new cigar case.

Masculine Candles > Cologne Klaudia Tirico
Okay so a candle for Father’s Day is not the most masculine of gifts, but you’ll be surprised at how many men appreciate a good home scent. Instead of cologne (which we’re sure he’s sick of getting all the time), gift him a masculine candle to spark up in his favorite room. If he loves the scent of fresh-cut grass, this R.Nichols MOW Candle is the perfect option. Or, if you’re looking for something really rugged, the Tompkins Scented Candle by the Blind Barber and Joya is housed in a barbicide jar and smells like honey, smoke, leather and lavender.
Blind Barber x Joya: Tompkins Scented Candle, $88
Beer Brewing Kit > Six-Pack of Beer Klaudia Tirico
In our opinion, buying a six-pack of his favorite beer and slapping a bow on it isn’t really a great Father’s Day gift idea. But, if he loves himself a glass of brew at the end of a long day, why not make it one that he’s made himself? This IPA Beer Making Kit comes with everything he needs to make a fresh batch of American-style IPA that he can share with his loved ones. Who knows, maybe it will turn into a new hobby that you both can benefit from.

His Ancient Old Spice > Fresh Cologne Klaudia Tirico
This Father’s Day could finally be his opportunity to cut the cord from his ancient Old Spice scent and try something more up-to-date. John Varvatos is our go-to for sexy, masculine fragrances and the designer’s new fragrance, Platinum Edition, is sure to be dad’s next signature scent. It’s blended with notes of unique spices, herbs, citrus, elegant woods, black leather and rich amber.
