Fathers get a bad rap! Sure, some aren’t doing what they should but the same can be said about some mothers. As I get off my soapbox, I’d like to honor the faithful fathers this Father’s Day.
Mysteriously, while I never have trouble finding a restaurant to celebrate Father’s Day, I always seem to get hung up on finding that perfect gift. This year I think I’ve got it nailed with a mini Father’s Day Gift Guide for the stylish father in your life.
Birchbox.com – Keep Father’s Day going all year long. By subscribing for as low as $20/month, a box of men’s products will be shipped to the father in your life. Products vary from month to month but include products like RicherPoorer Socks, Dr. Dewy Lip Cure, Ministry of Supply Atmos Base Layer Tee, RIADA by Adair Tie Bar and much more.
Lids.com – Give your father a baseball hat just in time for summer. Customize it with images or text making it extra special and memorable. Better yet, let him customize it himself by giving him a gift card.
Comfy shoes – UGG brand boots are known for their comfort and style, but it gets better. UGG also has a line of canvas slip-ons which are perfect for the out and about father who isn’t a fan of sandals but doesn’t like the bulk of a tennis shoe. These slip-ons are so light; he’ll barely know he has them on.
Cool tie – Chambray is the perfect spring/summer fabric. It’s light and casual but can be dressed up when the setting calls for it. J.Crew has some awesome chambray ties at remarkably reasonable prices. This is the perfect gift for the fashionable father in your life.
I hope these ideas will spark your interest and that you have a blessed Father’s Day!
This Month's Spotlight
My interest is always piqued when I come across products that serve a purpose beyond fashion. Angry Elephant Clothing was inspired in 2008 by the often overlooked endangered elephant population and the poaching crisis.
Founders, James Rounds and Albert Felder brought on brand and outreach specialist, Tyrone Felder to help spread the word about this cause.
In 2012, Angry Elephant Clothing re-launched their brand after an unexpected setback resulting from their artwork being stolen. Determined to press-on, Angry Elephant Clothing has been on a mission to bring awareness to this cause and is becoming a universal symbol for those who cry out against injustice particularly within the Urban American community.
They’ve also created shirts to reflect their support to find a cure for cancer and autism.
Now, Angry Elephant Clothing is expanding by partnering with clothing boutiques and other fashion outlets.
To support the cause and learn more visit www.angryelephantstore.com to buy your own tee, hoodie or baseball cap. You can also find them on Facebook – Angry Elephant 1969.
