12 Gift Ideas for Father’s Day 2017
Father’s Day is right around the corner. It falls on Sunday, June 18th this year and we would like to help you out find the perfect gift for your father or your man. First question to ask is what does your Dad love? Whatever it is, make sure you take his character into account while you shop. It will make it easier to come up with the ideal gift.
Is he a fashion forward dad? Does he love and appreciate new trousers, dress shirt, ties, nice designer shoes or belt? Or he is more into fitness and sports? Does he like to golf? How about electronics and high tech products? Is he a wine collector? If your answer is YES to any of these, but still need more ideas, here are some thoughts for you:
1- Designer shoes and matching belt: One think I admire about most Italian men is that they always match the belts with the shoes. Especially, if they are buying exotic skin shoes they make sure their belt is the same material and color as their shoes.
2- Designer Shirts and trouser: My favorite men’s designer shirts are Tom Ford, Zegna, Canali, Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Paul Smith, Lanvin & Etro. Hugo Boss is also a nice choice (if you can stay away from all the big logos on their shirts/polo shirts).
3- Designer Messenger Bags: My favorite ones are Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli & Ermenegildo Zegna and off course one of a kind Italian designers in Italy (specially in Florence) who offer exotic skin bags like Dino Bigioni, Silvano Biagini, Ghibli, ect…
4- Active wear: I like Paul Smith 531, Neil Barrett and Nike the most.
5- Apple Watch or Fitbit: I know… they have been in the market for a long time but they are always a good gift for someone who loves to measure his heart rate during exercise, jugging or just wearing it all day long.
6- Polar heart rate monitor: If he is performing an interval training session, it will help ensure that each one of his work intervals are being performed at his desired intensity. He can also use it during his strength training sessions to monitor the recovery between sets. www.polar.com
7- Personalized wine accessories: I love to shop at Etsy for any personalized items, however, there are many other wonderful choices online for personalized wine accessories like www.personalizationmall.com OR www.executivegiftshoppe.com OR www.potterybarn.com and many more!
8- Cologne & Grooming: These are always so many wonderful choices.
9- Cuff Links: Cufflinks might be traditionally associated with men’s evening wear ( mostly for tuxedos), but as long as you’ve got a long-sleeved shirt with the requisite holes in the cuff, you can work cufflinks into just about any outfit.
10- Designer Ties: “Whether you're suiting up for the office or laying out a look for the evening, a tie allows you to pull together the disparate elements of your wardrobe with a touch of texture or complementary color”. GQ
11- Bar set with tools: There are many beautiful options for bar set with tools at neimanmarcus.com, saks.com, Williams-sonama.com, amazon.com, ect…
12- Surprised Getaway: The ultimate gift would be a surprised gateaway to his favorite city, winery, beach, etc.…!
