Where form meets function
EACHINE / New Balance

With Father’s Day fast approaching (June 17, FYI), it’s time to show your old man some love and cop him a present he’ll cherish. We know that finding the perfect gift is no easy task, and that’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive guide for dads from all walks of life, so there are no excuses for yet another ugly tie this year.

Saving you the hard work of navigating June’s always-oversaturated ‘dad’ market, Higsnobiety Commerce Content Curator Nigel Minani has hand-picked the best gifts available to buy right now. He’s included a mix of failsafe classic gifts like a Baxter of California shaving set and a wallet-friendly nylon-strapped Timex watch, as well as to-the-minute tech including an EACHINE smartphone-compatible drone. And what kind of Father’s Day round-up would this be without a pair of dadcore kicks by New Balance?

These slip-on loafers from Rick Owens x BIRKENSTOCK are house shoes with a twist – they have that whole Rick Owens ‘Dark Lord’ vibe going on. And thanks to that luxe leather upper, they look so fly that your dad will be wearing them outside, too.

You don’t have to spend in excess of $500 to treat your dad to a stylish and thoughtful gift. Retailing for just $89, this Timex wrist piece is functional and timeless with its minimalist face and nylon strap.

For music-loving dads, this is the cop for you. These wireless headphones are perfect for unwinding with his favorite Pink Floyd album. Bonus points go to kids who throw in an Apple Music free trial membership to complete the whole discography.

This is the perfect toy for tech-savvy dads. The foldable drone comes with a 120° wide-angle, 720P HD camera, and will also connect to his smartphone for live viewing, which means neighborhood watch from the comfort of his living room.

For something a touch more traditional, this premium three-piece shaving set includes a double-edged safety razor, badger hair brush, and a chrome stand to take pride of place on dad’s bathroom counter. Each piece is made to imitate the classic barbershop pole, and for an extra flourish, you could even take it to an engraver.

Dad’s who like to look good will appreciate this belt made from silky-soft Italian suede leather with a silver buckle made from solid brass. What’s more, Dalgado plants a tree for every order received, so it’s a treat for Mother Nature, too.

For a truly unique gift that celebrates your dad’s dadcore sensibilities, these New Balance sneakers are the one. Create the perfect pair and add your own personal touch. If you don’t know where to begin, we’d recommend simply adding “Dad” to the heel of the shoe. Meta.

If the grill is your dad’s safe space, he’ll surely love this cast iron smoker box from GrillPro. The simple yet useful iron tool will give a great, smoky flavor to all your food, and you could even throw in a bag of BBQ Smoking Chips to complete the set.

Let’s be honest, most dads are partial to indulging in a cold beer after a long day. This stainless steel bottle holder will keep his favorite IPA as cold as if it had come straight from the fridge. For an even funkier design, check out this dope bottle holder created in collaboration with Baron Von Fancy.

This stackable cargo box isn’t just the perfect gift for ultra-organized dads, it’s also a sly way to put him onto the whole Japanese workwear trend, so you can’t really go wrong with this one.
