We’re totally feeling the summer vibes this June. Don’t get too relaxed and forget about finding something special for Dad or your favorite Grads this year. We’ve rounded up 6 gift ideas to make it easy for you to relax and unwind for the rest of summer.
1. PubsOf Art and Glassware
Pubs Of is the perfect way to honor your Dad’s alma mater or your college grads favorite watering holes. Artist Brian McKelvey created a handprinted collection of street scenes from 80 different cities. The originals are pen & ink sketches with a watercolor wash and then he’s used the images on canvases, posters, prints or glassware.
Prices range from $10-500.

2. Etiequette Ties
Etiequette (e-ti-ket) is a line of ties that all have themes (i.e. nature, animals, space, etc.) to reflect favorite activities, hobbies, tastes, etc. Tiny cacti or astronauts or cupids or horses, step & repeat to form a uniform pattern. A great gift idea for professionals, or new soon-to-be professionals that still lets them subtly express personality.

3. Colorful New Keurig Coffee Maker
These new brightly colored and perfectly sized Keurig 2.0 K250 coffee makers are the perfect practical but still fun gift for a dorm room, starter apartment or small office. The new bright colors (think – turquoise, orange zest, sandy pearl) will liven up their daily routine a bit, with still the ease of the game changing, one-touch coffee maker. You can brew more than 500 different beverages from 70+ brands (not just coffee!)
4. Smart Phone FishHunter
The way to easy Father’s Day gifting is to choose his favorite hobby and gift accordingly. For the Dad who lives on the water, try the new FishHunter. It’s small, wireless, completely portable and fits perfectly in his pocket so he can take anywhere he likes to fish. It goes on the surface of the water and measures water depth, surface water temperature and helps you pinpoint fish w/ their corresponding app.
Father’s Day Special, $139
5. Mega Flask, Beer Boot and Man Apron from Burlington
While we do frequently recommend staying somewhat practical for your Dads and Grads gift-giving, sometimes you just need something that’s totally fun. We found these Mega Flasks ($13), Massive Beer Boots ($9.99) and Man Aprons ($7.99) at Burlington – cheap and perfectly gifted together or apart. Little over $30 for all three, normally priced at $86.
6. Dyson Heating/Cooling System
Back to practical, but cool…this isn’t your typical fan – it’s a chicly and sleekly designed new heating/cooling system by Dyson and will keep those dorm rooms, new apartments or offices hot or cool depending on what you need. It’s quiet (aka won’t annoy your roommates or colleagues,) can fit under a desk or looks sleek left out. We’re especially into the blue + iron color.
