Father's Day Gifts

Father's Day is this weekend, and while I'm sure most dads just want to spend time with their children, here are a few gift ideas, in case you can use them.

These coasters are beautiful, and are available in many motifs and in some college logos.

My father has worn a similar pair forever. In fact, I picture him in these or boat shoes whenever I think about him. This Quoddy pair would be a wonderful investment for him. As Quoddy's are custom made in Maine, it's too late to get them in time for Father's Day, but Quoddy does offer gift certificates, and he would probably prefer to pick the color and width, anyway.

I adore these port and starboard cuff links -- they would be perfect for my father, who loves to sail. The silver stirrups are also very nice, and Brooks Brothers is offering their french knots on promotion right now.

I'm certain that men can never have too many motif belts, especially in time for summer. Leather Man Ltd. (brother company of Eliza B.) makes their products in Essex, Connecticut. These can be custom ordered, but if it's possible to get to Fairfield or Essex in Connecticut on Saturday, they have non-custom belts available, making this is a great go-to gift.

Everlane cashmere sweaters are a great price. I haven't tried these sweaters out, but everything else I have from Everlane is of great quality. Their tees are super soft and feel expensive.

And since a classic Father's Day gift is a tie, here are a couple fun ones from Liberty for J. Crew.

Also, these seasonings for a dad who likes to grill made me laugh.

Happy Father's Day to all the great dads!
