#SaturdaySwag: Great Gifts for Dad!!!


Father’s Day comes around once a year, and it’s the perfect time to show Dad’s and beloved Father Figures love and appreciation. After all, they do so much for all of us! Fathers are such a gift! They are our providers, protectors, and our knights in shining armor.   It’s time to show the Dad’s some love!  Here are a few ideas for your Dad or prominent male figure!







For the Creative Dad: Iona Handcrafted Books (www.ionahandcraftedbooks.com)

I found these amazing journals, photo albums, and scrapbooks at the Wells Street Art Fair.  Artist, Mychal Mitchell creates these amazing journals with such attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship.  Her journals are one of a kind and unique. Each book has acid-free, archival and hand torn papers that are perfect for your Dad to preserve his thoughts, photos, and memories.  You can even customize your journal to make it even more unique for the special man in your life. 

Boardroom Dad:

If your dad is king of the boardroom, keep him dressed to impress with a pair of cufflinks.  Elegant enough for the office while remaining stylish, these cufflinks are perfect for the dad who takes charge in the boardroom!

Music-Loving Dad:

When your dad is a music lover, the sound must be outstanding. Make sure Dad can hear every note and every chord with a portable speaker.  Dad will appreciate his favorite sounds coming out of a system he can enjoy anywhere (the beach, the patio, picnics and BBQ’s).

Well Groomed Dad: Bevel Shaving System and Bevel Trimmer

Created by Tristian Walker, the Bevel Razor, and Shaving system has become a favorite among men of color. The first and only shaving system designed for coarse and curly hair, this razor and grooming products help to reduce razor bumps and skin irritation. The Bevel Shaving system approaches grooming with a five-part system designed to treat your skin.  Priming Oil, Shave Brush, Shave Cream, and Restoring Balm, keep your skin hydrated and free of irritation.  They launched the Bevel Trimmer in 2015, and GQ named it their 2016 Trimmer of the year.  Both products are perfect for the dad that always wants to look good!

Couch Potato Dad:  Amazon Fire TV Stick

Ideal for the dad that loves his TV! The fire stick is a streaming media stick that allows you to enjoy apps, games, Netflix, Hulu, HBO; Youtube Amazon Video, ESPN and more.  It’s portable too, so you can plug your fire stick into a TV HDMI port and continue watching.

For the King of the Grill: Gourmet Grilling Set

For the man who takes pride in his seasonings and marinades, you should get him the tools that make him feel like the grill master he is!

Still stuck? Check out ManCrates (www.mancrates.com)

ManCrates is an online company that specializes in unique and “manly” gifts for men!  Their gifts come packaged in crates, sealed tight and shipped with a crowbar! That’s right; your man will open this present with a crowbar!  They have a variety of crates available depending on Dad’s interests.  These are just a few options on their website.

Happy Shopping!


Until next time,

Take care of yourselves and one another!
