Gifts to Delight Dad!
Finding the perfect Father's Day gift for Dad can be a challenge. One of the first obstacles to overcome is the idea that Dad doesn't need anything. Need isn't always the best basis for a gift. Consider those "useful" gifts you may have received as a child. Instead, let's aim for delight. That the gift may be useful too is an added bonus. Whole Earth Provision Co. is filled with gifts that Dad will be happy to receive and to use. Here are a few possibilities. For more suggestions, check out our Father's Day Collection or stop by one of our stores for even more inspiration.
Howler Brothers Men's Gaucho Snapshirt
The Howler Brothers Gaucho Snapshirt with embroidered Jellyfish comes with a message for Dad: relax and go with the flow! Howler Brothers make comfortable clothing that can go fishing, spend time outdoors in hot humid weather, and look sharp for a backyard party. The Gaucho Snapshirt is a Howler Brothers classic and features pearl snaps, a mesh-lined vented back yoke, a lightweight cotton poly fabric that dries quickly, and vintage style western shirt embroidery.
Having a good quality rain jacket close at hand makes life easier. Dad won't have to wonder if the weather forecast is accurate. Here's why. The Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket can be packed into its own pocket. Dad can keep it in the car or drop it in a daypack where it will be ready to be used if needed. The PreCip Eco Jacket has been popular for many years. It’s waterproof and made of 100% recycled nylon ripstock. Seams are taped, and there are heat releasing PitZips. The mesh lined pockets can also be used for ventilation as needed. And the hood can be rolled and stowed in the collar if Dad would prefer wearing a hat.
ExOfficio BugsAway Baja Cap
If bugs annoy Dad when he's outdoors, consider gifting him a piece of ExOfficio's BugsAway clothing. Whole Earth offers shirts, pants, bandanas and hats with BugsAway technology. It's odorless, invisible and uses a built-in insect repellent Permethrin which is so tightly bound to the fabric that garments can retain repellency through 70 washings (no dry cleaning though; it removes the treatment). The Baja Cap will keep the bugs away from Dad's eyes and offer some sun protection for them as well.
Smith Optics Prep Sunglasses
Aviator glasses are back, and, perhaps for Dad, they've always been in style. Give him the gift of a pair of classic shades with excellent sun protection for his eyes. Smith Optics Prep Sunglasses offer 100% UVA, B and C protection. The lightweight polycarbonate lenses provide increased color contrast for a clearer view of the world outside. The frames are made of tough, long-lasting stainless steel with a single bridge.
OluKai Men's Tuahine Sandals
Does Dad need a new pair of flips? Give him an upgrade with OluKai’s Tuahine (two-wah-he-neh) sandals from the islands of aloha living. As you might expect, the Tuahine is made of quality leather with a nice touch of decorative stitching on the strap, and the 'Wet Grip Rubber' outsole has a breeze block lug design for added traction. These sandals are made for walking: on the beach, exploring new places or for wearing every day.
Tilley Endurables LTM6 Airflo Hat
Here's another classic gift that might be just the thing for Dad. Tilley Endurables have the name and the reputation for quality that he's sure to appreciate. Made by hand in Canada, when Dad pulls a Tilley from the closet, it's the signal for outdoor adventure and travel to begin! The Tilley Endurables Airflo Hat has a broad front and back brim to protect the face and eyes. There's mesh ventilation in the crown to let the heat out and the cool breeze in, and the Tilley is water-resistant. It also floats.
Hamacas Rada Multicolor Matrimonial (Double) Cotton/Nylon Hammock
Does Dad work too hard? Do you wish he would just kick back and take it easy once in a while? You can encourage him with a Yucatan Hammock. Picture him in a hammock stretched out and comfy, snoozing on the porch or in the yard, a cool drink at his side and a blissful smile on his face. You can make it happen! A Yucatan hammock is lightweight, cooling, colorful and easy to hang up and to take down. (And it’s a gift the whole family can enjoy!)
