He’s always been there when you needed advice, taught you to how to be handy around the house, and helped you find your way in the world. Now it’s time to honor the man who has given you so much with a thoughtful, unique Father’s Day gift. But what do you get the man who has everything? Ties are boring, cuff links and golfing gear are overdone, and a gift card is just plain lazy. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite gear and gadgets that we think Dad will appreciate (like the sharp Kenneth Cole watch below). It’s time to get your father something he’ll truly appreciate—and show off to all his friends.
1. Kenneth Cole Automatic Watch With Black Leather Strap, available at KennethColeTime.com for $195
Help Dad transition easily from business to casual with this watch by Kenneth Cole. The stainless-steel case and black leather band are timeless, while the rose-gold accents on the face give it a modern (and trendy) look that will work in just about any setting.
2. Gerber GDC Money Clip, available at GerberGear.com for $32
Gerber is known for its innovative knives and tools, but the company has been expanding with a lineup of everyday carry products. The GDC money clip houses a small knife inside its titanium-coated steel body, blending quality, looks, and functionality into one attractive piece.
3. Jack + Mulligan MDNT Kennedy Duffel, available at JackandMulligan.com for $115
If there’s one thing every man can never have enough of, it’s useful bags. Jack + Mulligan’s famous Kennedy Duffel recently received a sleek upgrade, with leather accents and an all-black color scheme. It’s ideal for the gym—or its true calling: the weekend getaway.
4. Old Weller Antique Original 107, available at select retailers for $25
You’ve heard of Pappy Van Winkle, the legendary bourbon that costs hundreds of dollars (if you can track down a bottle), but did you know Old Weller Antique is made at the same distillery, with the same recipe, and cut at the same proof as Pappy 15-year-old? Let people fight over $300 bottles and secure Dad 750 milliliters of this lesser-known gem.
5. Shun Classic Eight-Inch Chef’s Knife, available at Shun.Kaiusaltd.com for $175
