What to buy for Father’s Day

Dear Fashionistas,

With Father’s Day just around the corner, many of us are scrambling for the perfect gift to give the men in our lives. We are looking for something that fits their personality to a tee, something that they will appreciate, something that they will cherish, but most importantly, something that says, ‘you are truly wonderful and our family is blessed to have you’. Here are my top three picks for great father’s day gifts. For even more options, check out my ‘170 Father’s Day Gift Ideas‘ board on Pintrest.

Ciao for now,

From the friendly fashionista

1.) For the technology and travel enthusiast

If the man in your life is a photography enthusiast, then the Kata Pro-Light Backpack is the thing for him. It is an ideal tool for traveling photographers, the backpack features a tripod holder, a camera strap, and a padded laptop compartment. The greatest thing about this backpack, is that it protects your equipment during inclement weather.

2.) For the comic book aficionado

If the man in your life is a huge Star Wars fan, then the gift for you and your little guy to get him would be this wonderful book entitled, ‘Darth Vader and Son’ by Jeffrey Brown. It has been getting rave reviews across the board as a hilarious story about Darth Vader from a typical paternal perspective.  Check out the trailer below!

3.) For the Fashionable Father

If the man in your life is a sharp dresser, he’ll appreciate these great items to keep him looking spiffy. You can’t go wrong with any of these basics. In a summer filled with bright clothing, he’ll look cool and collected sporting any of these neutral picks.

Happy Father's Day


  1. totally needed some good last minute ideas for Father’s Day! Thanks hon!

  2. Char you have an AMAZING smile! So cute!
    Here’s where I’m buying gifts for my Dad, Grandfather and my SO’s Dad.

    I highly recommend checking this guy’s stuff out because I bought my SO’s Mom
    a gift from this guy and she and her Mom thought I paid way more than I did
    and were both THRILLED so I got lots of free “cool points” and uhmmm other “rewards”.

  6. The backpack at the top looks like a Despicable ME character ready to scuba dive. Funny. Thanks for all the good ideas!!

  7. I checked out the pins too, they are great. I love most of the ideas.

  8. I like your suggestions. They are definitely top on the list to consider.

  9. Oh my gosh these are great gift ideas! I LOVE that backpack! Father’s can often be hard to shop for because they tend to me much more modest about gift receiving than us Moms ;)…or is that just in our house??
