Lots of tools, a chainsaw… even a designer slingshot. In the past I’ve given some interesting, possibly questionable presents to my dad. Growing up in the coutnry, these are all practical gifts we could use to build things together or enjoy an outdoor adventure. Living in the city with a love of the country, here are a few of our choice picks whether he’s a city dad or outdoors man.
Lab Series Age Rescue+ Essentials Kit: Having a beauty blogger for a girlfriend has pushed me to know the importance of a good skincare routine. That said, like most men I want a low maintenance routine that includes a face wash, moisturizer and eye cream. This set perfectly hydrates my skin without being oily and keeps those city miles from showing up.
Glasses.com: Help dad look chic by finding him the perfect shades. Whether its prescriptions or sunglasses, their virtual try on tool makes it easy for him to try them on virtually or at home and pick from top name brands to find his perfect pair.
Herschel Raven Wallet: Herschel is known for their backpacks, but this Raven wallet/money clip has changed my life. No more fumbling to put bills away. Simple great design that just works. Available in cloth, leather and a variety of patterns and colors.
NutriBullet – As we get older staying in shape and staying energized gets tougher. Fortunately juicing has never been easier thanks to the NutriBullet. And with so many quick and easy recipes it’s a great way to start your day.
If he’s the outdoors type, whether in lifestyle or for vacation, Eddie Bauer is a great place to find the perfect gift for him. For the past 7 or so years, Eddie Bauer has been going back to its roots as a rugged outdoor supplier and believe me, we’ve noticed! With a history that starts in the Pacific Northwest with the design and production of the first quilted down jacket we couldn’t be more excited by their new collection.
Some top picks:
Eddie Bauer 1936 Skyliner Model Down Hunting Vest ($199) – This has been on my wishlist for some time. The design is impeccable with a cloth shell with leather detailing and 550 fill premium goose down on the inside for warmth.
Eddie Bauer Long Sleeve Guide Shirt – I am currently field testing this top which is built to keep you cool using wicking, meshes and built in UPF (that’s SPF for your clothes to keep the harmful rays off). It’s a great design and good on hot day hikes.
Eddie Bauer Stormdown Vest – Every guy needs an easy down vest that folds and travels well, this one packs into its own pocket! In a few weeks I will be heading north and will get a chance to test out my Stormdown Vest and see how the synthetic, waterproof down compares to some of my other more expensive, traditional down gear.
