So it’s widely believed that dads get short shrift when it comes to Father’s Day, right? While we spend time and effort and money on our mothers for Mother’s Day, dads get ugly neckties, ash trays and socks. We at AGL wanted to do better than that this Father’s Day. We decided to give dads a tribute full of all the things we think they’d like if we just spent a little time and effort and money …
When was the last time you spent quality time with dad? Now this is not a suggested excuse for not doing anything creative for him, but it might just be one of the best gifts you could give him. Join dad for a private golf lesson from one of your city’s finest PGA professionals. He’ll learn special strategies and techniques that are sure to improve his golf swing. Binge-watch his favorite series on Netflix with him or take him out to eat or to a performance you know he’ll like. Whatever you choose, if it’s with you, dad is sure to love it.
But before you hang out with dad, make sure he’s looking his best with the Bevel Trimmer. The Bevel Trimmer is specifically designed for people with coarse or curly hair to achieve the most precise cut while helping to prevent bumps or irritation. Its blades are protected with a National Sanitary Foundation-approved, hypoallergenic coating designed to help inhibit bacterial growth to achieve a truly clean and sharp lineup.
How do you show your appreciation for the dad who taught you to drive, let you borrow the car when you still lived at home or even bought you your first car? How about a test drive? Call up or visit one of the national locations of Gotham Dream Cars and arrange a test drive for dad in one of the cars he only fantasizes about.
If the dad in your life likes to cook or is a self-proclaimed grill master, order him some premium cuts from Omaha Steaks. Don’t let the name mislead you–they have much more than red meat. Quality seafood and poultry are also available, as well as wine and gourmet desserts.
Show dad some love with a little pampering. Make a reservation for him at The Spa at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel and treat him to a facial, a mani/pedi or a relaxing massage. And while you’re at it, lavish dad with a little luxury with a hand-made, Italian, leather wallet or briefcase from Il Bisonte. The company specializes in ruggedly sophisticated accessories.
If your dad is as attached to his phone as your teenager, give him the gift of wearable power. Insignia has an affordable mobile charger that’s lightweight, delivers a full charge in about an hour, and is the size of a cigarette box.
Is the beach the best place to find dad this summer? Then gift him with luxurious jacquard beach towels from Eskayel. Eskayel towels grace every lounge chair at the famed Shutters by the Beach hotel in Los Angeles. Alegria Home has hand-made throw blankets made by master artisans in South America that can be the perfect beach or poolside accessory/necessity, and Seltzer Goods carries a stylish, durable, washable beach tote that dad won’t be embarrassed to throw on his shoulder.
And if you absolutely must get dad a tie, put an imaginative spin on it. Click on over to Two Guys Bow Tie and get him a custom-made wooden bow tie. That’s right—a wooden bow tie. The brainchild of two designers who wanted to combine craftsmanship with modern style, these ties were created to fill a void in men’s fashion and are quickly making wood a viable material in the fashion industry.
Happy Father’s Day, dads!
