We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite gadgets and gifts that can get you thinking about how to make his Father’s Day one of the best yet. All the fathers here at outfitYOURS.com actually got together and came up with our list of the best gifts for this Father’s Day.
Bellroy Slim Sleeve Wallet
Built using their low impact Nude Approach, Bellroy has transformed the traditional wallet. The slim profile reduces unnecessary bulk making it easy to store in a pocket or bag. Made of bona fide leather this small and simple design perfectly blends usability and aesthetics to make the high-quality wallet that he’s been looking for.
If you thought you’d seen everything the smartphone has to offer, the Powerup 3.0 is worth a serious look. How does it work? Simply attach the Powerup device to a paper airplane of your choice, sync your iDevice to it’s receiver and give your aircraft a toss. It has a 180 foot range and can stay aloft for up to 10 minutes on a single charge. An awesome mix of 21st century technology and old-school entertainment that’s guaranteed to thrill gadget-happy dads, young and old.
The ultra-thin Mophie Juice Pack is not of our most popular cases for nothing. Give your Father something that will not only protect his most important asset but also give him extra battery life when he’s on the go. Rubber support pads with suspension bumpers shield against shocks and drops, and when short on battery life just flip the stand-by switch on the back and you can immediately begin recharging your iPhone. The extra charge equates to 14 hours of additional battery life. Now that’s cool!
Dad may have mentioned he wanted a stylus so why not wow him with a pen and stylus all in one? This is no gimmick as the Alupen is made of anodized aluminum and is as premium as you find for a stylus. Stylus and pen are on opposite sides and can easily be used by twisting.
San Francisco’s Broquet has tracked down the tastiest, most innovative chili sauces this country has to offer and compiled what they call a “Broquet” of hot sauces. Comes with 5 bottles of unique concoctions, and our favorite part, a clever hot sauce tasting log book to help him keep track of the heat. A cool and unique gift that he’s not soon to forget.
And if hot sauce is just not your Daddy’s bag, check out some of the other Broquets such as “The Smokehouse” which is bacon six ways or “The Leather Shoe Care Kit.”
The Moshi Versacover has quickly become the best iPad case. If your Dad is asking for an iPad case then this is what you need to buy him. Not only does it have the sleep / wake functionality but the Versacover also is the slimmest iPad case to have all viewing angles. The unique origami design folds into the perfect angle for every need. Not only is this a functional case but it also looks great by showing off the back of the iPad and has a sleek front cover.
Nothing says Father’s Day like a tie. This year keep it classy with one of Simply Skinny’s slender and affordable neckties. Handmade and 100% wool, choose from a variety of sleek designs. It’s sure to become a new favorite in his collection.
When it comes to watches quality is a must. That’s why we love what Arvo has done with the simple and classy White Time Sawyer. Water resistant, genuine leather, and a stainless steel case back are just a few of the features that will make this gift one that he’ll use for years.
For the more conservative Father this Sena Burnished iPhone wallet case is the answer. Made with tanned leather and finished with a gentle burnishing process, the two-toned finish makes for a look and style that will age beautifully with a natural dark patina tone. It’s accessible natural mount securely holds the iPhone while keeping a slim profile. A nice, reliable case that we highly recommend.
Help your Old Man upgrade to something a little more functional this year with the Hex Convertible Brief Case. The modern design incorporates a clean, up to date style that can also quickly convert to a street ready laptop backpack. Features a fleece-lined 15” Laptop storage compartment with additional exterior tablet and phone pockets.
