Attention procrastinators! Father’s Day is a week and a half away and it is time to start thinking about what you are going to buy Dad. Heck, it is past time to think about it. It is time to BUY Dad a gift, especially if you are ordering online. Well, unless you have plans to actually visit a physical store over the next week (um, no). The good news is I’m here to help with my Father’s Day gift guide.
I love creating gift guides and I have to admit, this year’s Father’s Day gift guide is a good one. I’ve come up with some unique ideas for Dads of all types and ages. New Dads, Seasoned Dads, Dads of Dads, Dog Dads. Whatever the Dad scenario, I’ve got you covered come June 18th.

Does the Dad in your life love to travel? Now, does that specific Dad enjoy it when the airline loses their luggage? Well, Raden has solved that problem with their fancy-shmancy suitcases (C/O Raden). These beauties offer a built-in GPS so you can track your suitcase’s location throughout your trip. It also has a USB charger and a built-in scale. Yes, seriously. No more overweight baggage fees for all you overpackers. Guilty as charged right here.
Raden offers a carry-on and checked bag size, as well as a set, which are available in 12 different colors. I’ll admit, I chose the glossy white checked bag size for myself. My husband totally wants the carry-on size in a “more manly color” for his business trips. Whatever the color or size, Raden knew what they were doing when they created their line of luggage. Pretty cool.
Who has heard of Jane.com before? If you haven’t, think of Etsy meets daily deals. They offer a ton of affordable items in different categories like clothing, accessories, kids, home decor and their newest category: men’s. Just in time for Father’s Day. New deals pop up every single day and I tell you, the stuff keeps getting cuter and cuter. Or should I say tougher and stronger since we are talking men here.
I recently ordered this matching zebrawood cuff link and tie clip set for my husband (C/O Jane.com). He is all about anything made out of wood and these are unlike any other tie clip and cuff link set I’ve seen before. The quality is amazing and the wood grain is beautiful. Other great Father’s Day ideas on their site include clothing, shoes, wallets, dopp kits, etc. They also have a ton of stuff that can be engraved and customized in case you are looking for a more personal item. So many great gift ideas with most under $40.
If your guy likes leather, check out Jackson Wayne. I collaborated with them earlier this year on a gorgeous leather women’s clutch and it made perfect sense to partner up again for Father’s Day. Jackson Wayne sells only the finest full-grain leather available. Think absolute top-tier, best leather you can buy. I honestly can say after using my JW clutch for a few months, I can tell the difference in quality. Their leather somehow manages to get softer and better looking as it ages, instead of old and dirty. This is the good stuff.
One of my favorite gift ideas is this leather field notes journal (C/O Jackson Wayne), which is perfect for any business guy on-the-g0. I’m also in love with their leather messenger bags, wallets and their new weekender bag. If anyone looking for a deal, you can snag one of their blemished leather items which are marked down to crazy-good prices. These aren’t damaged items by any means. Minor scratches will happen anyway and like I said above, these type of imperfections add character. I can’t say enough good things about this leather shop.
Mustache, beard, goatee or clean-shaven. All men can use a nice shaving kit regardless of their facial hair preferences and Wet Shaving Products makes some good ones. WSP is a local Arizona company with a showroom in Chandler, but they ship their awesome shaving products globally. Their goal is to make luxury shaving products without the luxury price.
A few of the men in my life might have the mahogany-scented shaving kit coming their way (C/O WSP). Like I said above, my hubby pretty much loves anything made of wood so it only makes sense to smell like it, too. This kit includes a shave oil, shaving soap, aftershave and brush. Wet Shaving Products also makes a bunch of other kits, scents and individual products to choose from. If you buy any gift box set worth $50 or more, you’ll receive a free barbershop scented bar soap, as well as free shipping (use code WSPDAD). Also, Wet Shave Products is currently running a Father’s Day Giveaway for a free barbershop box set and bar soap. Click here to enter the giveaway if your dad is a “cut above the rest”!
I’m a huge fan of handmade gifts because those are from the heart. Involving the little ones means the gift truly comes from them instead of Mom’s bank account. I’ve taken my kids to As You Wish Pottery countless times over the last few years and it is always such a fun experience. Carter and Kenzie love picking out a piece of pottery to paint and going to town with the colors. I’ll admit, sometimes I have a hard time standing back and watching them paint the shark orange and yellow, but that’s the beauty of letting kids be kids.
As You Wish is holding a Father’s Day mug workshop this upcoming weekend on June 10 from 10am – 8pm for only $15. If you can’t make it to the workshop or aren’t interested in a mug, feel free to swing by another day or select another item to paint. They have everything from platters to picture frames and sculptures. My kids always go for the shark sculptures – maybe one day they will move onto something new. As You Wish has locations all over the southwest, including six locations in the Phoenix metro area. Just don’t forget it takes 2-3 days for the creations to be fired in kiln so make sure to give yourself plenty of time.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s post with JORD on their wood watches. There is even a giveaway going on right now to win a $129 gift card. I can guarantee you your Dad will love their watches.
