Father's + Day

Not quite sure what to get your old man this father's day? Here's a list that I compiled after much surfing that has something for every kind of daddy-o.

For the Adventurous Dad: A little flashback-to-cub-scouts is healthy for every middle-aged man.

"Firestarter Kit includes: pine needles, fuel soaked wood, locally harvested and dried sap, and 15 strike-anywhere matches – all enclosed in a medical glass test tube that’s sealed with a cork."

Firestarter Kit: $16

For the Classy Dad: This Gramophone iPod Station just oozes class. Looks like the past, plays like the present. Turn up the Sinatra.

Gramaphone iPod Station: $95

For the Sports Dad: Personalized New York Times Baseball History Book. A bound collection of personalized memories of his favorite Major League Baseball team.

Personalized New York Times Baseball History Book: $90

For the Hipster Dad: Make every picture a hipstamatic picture. Throw in some flannel and glasses and you've got yourself one cool pop.

The Instant Camera iPhone Decal: $6

For the Oblivious Dad: Never have to worry about proper placement again. Sadly the words are in German but if he can get past that, setting the table is a cinch.

Kniggerish Table Set:24.95.

For the Nostalgic Dad: Three vintage record albums to store all his old 33's. (The wear and tear is part of its charm.)

Record Album Collection :$34

For the Metro Dad: This shaving kit contains Pre-shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After Shave Balm and a Badger Brush. They're all infused with Sandalwood oil (one of my favorite scents).

The Art of Shaving Starter Kit:$25

For the Fitness Dad: How cool is this see through Kayak? A bit steep but totally worth it.

Transparent Kayak: $1,475 (Woman not included.)

For the Utilitarian Dad: Look no further for the perfect rustic Camper Satchel. Made from tan waxed canvas (waterproof!)

The Camper Satchel: $175.

For the Artsy Dad: This silk screened cotton canvas throw pillow has the perfect balance of macho and mystic.

Boxing Deer Bucks Throw Pillow: $60

For the Intellectual Dad: nothing says IQ like these "Vintage Mens Smart is Sexy Grey Loafers" :$65

For the Young-at-Heart Dad: Give him his childhood back.

Axe Sling: $198

For the Fashionable Dad: Every man should own a good ascot/pocket square. Pink just emphasizes his masculinity.

Paisley Silk Pocket Scarf: $70
Spotted at Mr. Porter.

You're welcome.
