Father’s Day is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to figure out that something special to get Dad. Shoes, shirts, wallets, ties – even the most common gift items can become great surprises when done right. Here are The Agency’s pick of 10 great Dad gifts.
This is no ordinary shoe. The Left Shoe Company specializes in bespoke shoes custom-designed to your feet for maximum style and comfort. It all starts with a Digital Foot Scan:“Our cutting-edge 3D scanner takes a perfect 360-degree picture of each foot, creating a more accurate and detailed measurement of your foot’s shape and volume than
traditional methods.” Then you just select your style, choosing from among Oxfords, Derbies, Loafers, Boots, Golf shoes, Boat shoes and much more. Dad will be impressed.
2. Handsome Coffee
Keep Pops perked up with this top-shelf coffee, roasted right here in Downtown LA by roasting gurus Tyler Wells, Michael Phillips and Chris Owens. Choose from a list of specialty “Comfort” and “Adventure” blends, and find the origin, variety and flavor profile right on the package. Or, if you can’t decide on a roast, go with the “Comfort and Adventure Set. ($40)” so Dad gets to try a little of everything.
You can also purchase Handsome Coffee at a number of specialty stores around Los Angeles like this one here.
The “Waxwear Dad Bag” is designed especially with new fathers in mind. It comes complete with hypoallergenic Nassimi lining (waterproof) and the bag even includes a
changing pad. Oh, and let’s not forget the mesh bottle pockets, stroller clips, and an extended shoulder strap to keep Dad’s hands free for the new kid ($298).
When it comes to high-quality gyms, Equinox is at the head of the pack. For over 20 years, this elite fitness club (with locations across the country) has created an unparalleled experience that engages members in fitness and wellbeing and delivers unparalleled service and programming. Give Dad the gift of health this year with one of their exclusive membership packages.
These egg grills have such a cult following that their devotees are known as “Eggheads.” So if Dad is serious about grilling, it might be worth dropping $420 on this stylish grill, a modern version of a traditional Japanese charcoal cooker known as a “Kamado.” Crafted from heavy-duty ceramic, it distributes heat evenly and maintains both very high and low temperatures – resulting in some excellent steak.
Handmade right here in the USA from premium, vegetable-tanned Horween leather, these wallets – out of Detroit – come individually numbered, offer two card slots and a single billfold compartment, and feature a rich natural finish that only gets richer over time.
For the sophisticated Dad who enjoys a good glass of Whiskey, these Sagaform Rocking Glasses are a simple yet elegant way for him to enjoy his drink of choice in style. Buy him an originalWhiskey Ball Ice Tray as a gift.
Dad already has the Scotch glasses? Then get him this wonderful 18-year blended Scotch whisky to fill them, made from an exclusive selection of 15 aged whiskies. This Johnny Walker blend, while still affordable, delivers a silky smooth taste with a rich, lasting finish.
Let Dad look fab with these stylish summer ties from Steven Allen. Skinny ties are still very in – so make him try a couple. They go great with summer linen shirts.
10. Led Zeppelin Super Deluxe Box Set

The remastered and expanded versions of Zeppelin’s first albums come in a variety of formats (CD, Vinyl, MP3) – including “Super Deluxe” boxed editions with special bonus tracks.
