Chic Father's Day Gift Ideas

Lilly Pulitzer


With Father's Day just around the corner, I have put together some interesting ideas for gifts at all different price points.

1. Ancestry is having a Father's Day sale on their DNA kits. This is a wonderful gift for anyone who has not already done this testing to learn more about their ancestry and family history.

2. Bartesian Premium Cocktail Machine for the Home Bar - I have 2 and love them -

INTELLIGENT COCKTAIL CREATION: Create endless craft cocktails in the comfort of home — no need to measure or pour. Just insert a cocktail capsule into your Bartesian drink mixer machine, select your preferred strength and press mix. The system draws the spirit from the appropriate reservoir and mixes your cocktail in seconds.

3.  Estelle Decanter in Gray Smoke - a handsome heirloom quality decanter for his favorite Bourbon, Scotch, or Cognac.

4. I detest 99% of men's colognes. I love this one - it was created for Cary Grant and worn by him and is also Robert Redford's favorite. My late husband wore Creed Green Irish Tweed as well.

5.  J. Crew Irish Linen Shirts - available in a rainbow of colors and made with the finest Irish linen, these shirts are summer classics.

6. An heirloom quality luxe leather poker set for game nights at home.

7. For the gardening dad, this Swiss made pruner is the industry standard. Mine is about 25 years old and I use it daily.

8. My favorite candle maker NEST has come out with a new scent perfect for a unique gift for the man in your life. Evoke the depths of a mysterious forest with this scented candle featuring notes of smoky labdanum, patchouli, and cedar wood combined with charred birchwood and a hint of black truffle.

9. For Rothy's fans, a pair of Men's Driving Loafers would be the perfect gift. Available in many colors and eco friendly, comfy, and machine washable of course. Click here for $20 off your first order.

  1. Since you're in Florida - am curious as to your thoughts on Hawaiian Shirts for men ??

    1. I have seen fabulous vintage and designer versions and there are also hideous ones. I think it takes a man with sartorial sense and the lack of a beer belly to pull the look off, but done well, it is a great summer look in places like Florida. Did my husband every wear one in D.C.? OMG no. LOL.

    2. thx - and I totally concur on the 'beer belly' ;)

    3. And no pairing with shorts, sandals, and socks.
