Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 15, 2014. And I have been thinking a lot about the roles of fathers in our homes, marriages, childhoods, and society at large. In fact, I’m planning on having an entire week of posts dedicated to dear old Dad starting Monday, June 9, 2014. But, because great gifts for Dad may take time to arrive before the big day, I’m sharing this Father’s Day gift guide today instead of next week.
If you are like me, buying gifts is not really my strong suit, especially buying gifts for men. Because of my extremely frugal nature, and what seems to be the nature of the gifts my husband really wants, namely expensive new electronic gadgets, I usually end up disappointing my husband, who really loves receiving and giving gifts. So, I’m always in the search of unique, but awesome gifts for the man I love most. He doesn’t always want something expensive, just something that is nice and shows that I really know him. And I know my husband wouldn’t mind receiving a couple items from this list. I hope your father or husband might enjoy one or more too!
Father’s Day Gift Guide 2014
Available in many colors (though I’m partial to this blue color) what’s not to love about these machine wash, no-iron sport shirts from Brooks Brothers? Made from Supima® cotton oxford with original Polo® button-down collar, center back pleat, front placket, golden Fleece® embroidery at left chest, contrast color on inside collar and cuffs, and deep yoke, they are pretty much the perfect shirt. And, it’s also available in slim fit.
A tie made from pure imported silk, featuring French tipping (in which the blade of the tie is cut with extra fabric for the tipping to be folded over and sewn on one seam), this Gingham slim tie is a classic, stylish gift for Father’s Day.
As the country’s oldest clothing retailer, Brooks Brothers is proud to uphold the same traditions and values for nearly two centuries. We believe these are the reasons why our customers consider us to be far more than a store. You can learn more about the Brooks Brother’s history and heritage HERE. Be Sure to take a look at their full Father’s Day Gift Guide! You’re gonna love what they have to offer.

Tessemae’s Father’s Day Grill Pack
Tessemae’s All Natural is the world’s fastest growing fresh condiment company. It started when the oldest of three brothers marched a Tupperware container filled with their mother’s homemade salad dressing recipe into the grand opening of a local grocery store back in 2009. Over the next 5 years, the brothers have achieved national distribution in Whole Foods Markets and Safeway grocery stores with a complete line of “clean” salad dressings, marinades, rubs, and sauces.
Tessemae’s has just launched their new Father’s Day Grill Pack. Complete with Ketchup, Honey Mustard, Teriyaki Sauce, Hot Sauce and brand new Slow Roasted Garlic Spread, this pack delivers the same real, simple, bold ingredients that can be expected from Tessemae’s. The must-have culinary accessory for any dad who wants to perfect his grilling skills this summer, Tessemae’s is the perfect complement to grilled veggies, meat or protein. Using only all-natural ingredients (ones you know and can actually pronounce!) and made with no refined sugars, these Paleo-friendly, dairy free, spreads and marinades can turn any BBQ into a real culinary feast. From now until June 10th, Tessemae’s is offering a special price ($25) for the entire grill pack with guaranteed Father’s Day delivery.

The PowerMat lets you recharge your iPhone and PowerCase wirelessly by simply placing them on the mat—no need to plug in your iPhone.

Harry’s Father & Son Shave Set
This is definitely one of my favorite gift guide ideas! What a better way to bring Father & Son together to create bonding moments while shaving? I’m a huge fan of this! Plus, you can even get the razor handles monogrammed! Like most of the men in your life, they’ve long had to choose between over-priced, over-marketed razors that disrespect your intelligence, and low quality, cheap razors that disrespect your face. They knew there had to be a better way, so they created Harry’s as a return to the essential: a great shave at a fair price.
