Stylish, Unique Father’s Day Gifts for 2016

What He Really Wants for Father’s Day 2016

Tie clips. Argyle socks. A pack of disposable razors. Sure, it seems harder to shop for your dad (or the father of your kids) on Father’s Day.  Father’s Day 2016 is right around the corner, and finding that perfect Father’s Day gift appears trickier than ever.  Do you turn to new technology? Is a classic piece of clothing the way to go? Or do you rely on “Old Faithful”, the good old brown leather wallet?

In the spirit of Summer 2016’s creative-yet-comfortable style, let’s try a little harder for dear old Dad this Father’s Day, shall we? The trick is to not stray too far outside Dad’s “comfort box”, but approach his 2016 Father’s Day gift with a renewed sense of creativity.

But how do you be unique with your Father’s Day present without going overboard? How do you make sure Dad will love (and use) his gift without giving him something he already owns a million of?

Don’t worry – as always, we’re here to help you “Design Your Lifestyle”! In this case, let’s compile a short-but-superlative list of useful and unique gifts for Dad as “his day” approaches (Father’s Day in the U.S. is Sunday, June 19, 2016 this year.)

So forget that pair of socks! Let him buy his own razors! Here’s a short list of 2016 Father’s Day gift ideas that we guarantee you won’t find on any other website!

Unique AND Useful Father’s Day Gifts for 2016

Copper Moscow Mule Mug (and Ingredients)

The Moscow Mule is unquestionably the “IT” drink of Summer 2016. Also known in some circles as the “Vodka Buck”, the Moscow Mule has a simple recipe: 4 ounces of ginger beer, 1 1/2 ounces of vodka, a quick dash of lime juice and a lime garnish. It’s truly a cocktail worthy of any world-class home bar.

What sets the Moscow Mule apart as a truly trendy cocktail is its presentation: Moscow Mules are generally served in a copper mug, over ice. As a result, the traditional Moscow Mule copper mug is a hot commodity among savvy cocktail drinkers – and a very cool gift for Father’s Day!

For the dad in your life who enjoys staying current (and refreshed) with a cocktail in the summer months, pick up a copper mug and the ingredients for a Moscow Mule. Our pick is the functional and attractive Double Wall Moscow Mule Copper Mug from Uncommon Goods. The double-wall design lets Dad enjoy his Moscow Mule without condensation, ensuring his 2016 Father’s Day cocktail won’t get watered down or warm up in the heat.

EDGES Custom Cutlery – The Monarch

For a dad that’s in need of “that ONE knife” for his kitchen and barbecue, look no further than the Monarch by EDGES custom cutlery. With its patented 8″ AEB-L Stainless blade, exceptional fluidity and ergonomics, and signature dovetail butt design, the Monarch by EDGES is truly a master’s chef knife that’s perfect for any serious home chef.

What sets EDGES apart from other cutlery lines is simple: each piece is custom-crafted and one-of-a-kind, ensuring that your dad’s Father’s Day 2016 knife is the only one like it in the world. A truly boutique, world-class cutlery design brand, EDGES cutlery can be made to order from the ground up – from handle material and color to decorative pins, no two pieces will ever be the same.

If the dad in your life is the king of the kitchen or grill, give him the one knife he’ll be drooling over for years to come.

Natural Material Watches – Sleek Blue-Collar Style

Yes, we said “sleek style” and “blue collar” in the same phrase. But in this case it makes perfect sense, thanks to the Analog Watch Co., creators of fine watches inspired by nature. For the dad in your life who loves nature, innovation, or perhaps just the look of wood or stone, it’s high time you incorporate that into his personal style!

We were blown away by the ingenuity of Analog Watch Co.’s wooden and stone watches – imagine, a flexible wooden watch strap! – and couldn’t help but make a long list of the men (and women) in our lives who would love these.

As an added bonus, Analog Watch Co. has a “one for one” policy in terms of the environment (i.e., for every tree used in production, they plant another). Also, their watches are 80% biodegradable! If your dad is Earth-conscious, into natural personal style, and in need of a truly unique accessory, give him a conversation starter for years to come with one of these watches!

Be Unique With Your 2016 Father’s Day Gift!

Whether you select a Moscow Mule copper mug, EDGES custom cutlery, natural material watch, or another item, make sure your 2016 Father’s Day present to dad reflects the style and design trends of Summer 2016: comfortable yet courageous, unique yet useful.

From all of us to all of you, Happy Father’s Day 2016!
