Gift Guide: 6 Gifts Ideas for Your Favorite Dads and Grads

DADS+GRADS_GiftGuide_TheGiftInsider

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 

PubsOf Grad Gift
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.
20% Off Code for TGI Members

2. Etiequette Ties 

Etiequite_FathersDayGifts

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.
$58

20% off Coupon Code + free 2 Day Shipping for TGI Members

3. Colorful New Keurig Coffee Maker

keurig-051115-2-1-brewer 
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!)
$119.99

4. Smart Phone FishHunter 

sonarphone17
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

MegaFlashFathersDayGift
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

6a73a904-fb84-494c-beab-2c5f2a10f73b-620x372
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.
$349.99

4 DIY Bridal Shower Gifts We Heart from Pinterest

Corn-hole Wedding Set: The perfect gift to give to a bride right before an outdoor wedding celebration!

 

Confetti Balloon: Okay, so giving money isn’t always ideal. But for the girl on the go this may be your only option. Give cash in a fun and innovative way by filling a giant balloon with helium, confetti, and cash. Have the bride pop it open and she’ll be “showered” with confetti!

 

 

Bridal Spoons: Why not personalize a boring set of wooden cooking spoons by decorating them with a bride and a groom? Perfect for an artsy person ready to take on a DIY challenge!

 

 

Dinner For Two: Did your bride register for a colander? Why not pair it with a few smaller gifts with a similar theme. Try an italian colander bundle! Include a bottle of wine, extra virgin olive oil, handmade pasta, and some delicious sauce to top off the meal!

Back to College Gift Ideas

Well folks, it’s almost time for class to be in session once again, and we’ve got the hippest and hottest ‘too cool for back-to-school’ must-haves. Don’t send your favorite college student off to school without ’em!

ALEX Water Bottle

The ALEX water bottle is perhaps the best water bottle on the market. Not only is it dishwasher safe and made of 100% PBA-free stainless steel, the bottle unscrews at the top AND in the middle for easy cleaning- a germaphobe’s dream come true!

Frykat Grill

 

This mini grill is ideal for a small cook out or tailgate BBQ. It is compact, portable, and comes in a variety of colors. Hot brats anyone?

Powermat

With little space and plugs in college dorm rooms and houses, it is hard to charge multiple tech items at once. But have no fear, the PowerMat is here! The Powermat, one of the coolest gadgets for this school year, only requires one plug to simultaneously and wirelessly charge your iphone, ipod, blackerry, camera, etc.

Stone Cloth Backpacks

These cloth backpacks are just too cool for school. Each knapsack is made in the United States and each purchase supports a child’s education in Tanzania. Buy a backpack, Carry an Education. Available in 5 different colors.

Cap-Sac

The Cap-Sac is a College Game Day partier’s dream come true! Free your hands with the Cap-Sac by tucking away your money, student ID card, and football ticket safely in the front zipper pocket.

The best part is that the Cap-Sac comes in all of your favorite team’s colors!


Pepper Spray Gun

 

Always stay safe and stylish on your college campus with this mace pepper spray gun. Choose from navy, sky blue, silver, or pink.

Beats By Dr. Dre

 

These extremely comfortable Hi-Def Noise-Cancelling headphones are the latest and greatest tech items on the market and college campuses. Beats by Dr. Dre come in multiple different colors, including special edition RED. With each purchase of RED headphones, Beats donates a percentage of the proceeds to the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

“Experience the music the way the artists want you to.”

iBottlerOpener

 

A bottle opener and a sleek iPhone case have come together as one unit in order to serve mankind like never before. We introduce you to- the iBottlerOpener. This product is extremely cool, protective, and convenient. Be prepared when thirst hits.
