5 Rad Gift Ideas for Dad

 

With Father’s Day around the corner, we thought we would suggest some ideas that dad will be sure to appreciate. Okay, technically it’s more than 5 gifts, but we’re not counting. We have too many apropos things not to include on this list. Besides, dad never buys anything for himself so you should do it for him.

This time of year everyone is very busy running around trying to keep up and get things done. So we thought we would put together a few suggestions and created a few gift guides that we will be posting here on the blog each week for the month of December.

So, by now you have probably taken care of the “big” gift. But what about the stockings? “Oh, the stockings!”, you say. You know, the thing you forgot to plan for, that has you running to your nearest drugstore, frantically looking for something that doesn’t look like you bought it at the drugstore? No? Never happens to you? Right, not us either. *blush*

Well, just in case you are looking for something thoughtful and unique, we at re-souL have some great ideas; paper goods, socks, wallets, shoe care products are just to name a few. See you soon!

Still stumped? Here’s some more gift ideas for you.

What to Wear, Men’s Edition: Bed Stu Luz

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?” It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. This week we feature the Bed Stu Luz for men. 

What to Wear with Bed Stu Luz: Men's Edition

 

 

Well hello everybody! This week for What to Wear Wednesday we are featuring the Bed Stu “Luz” for men. A sharp looking yet comfortable basic for any guy’s wardrobe. This everyday saddle shoe would fit right in with men’s khakis, jeans or wool pants.Wear them with a colorblock cardigan, a tweed sports coat or a classic gray flannel top coat. Don’t forget to finish your handsome look with a fedora or some colorful socks.

Holiday Gifts for Him

Because sometimes it’s harder to come up with gifts for the gentlemen in your life, we have come up with a holiday gift guide just for the dudes.

GUYS HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

> When looking at your phone to get the time is not quite good enough, may we suggest a stylish modern time piece from Alessi? Their watches are well designed and make a smart looking accessory.

> Speaking of smart, how about a smart looking tote to haul all of his stuff? Winter Session totes are produced and made here in the USA, Denver to be exact. Their mission is to “design and produce thoughtful, well-made things in a responsible manner.” You can’t argue with that philosophy.

> Is it time for a new wallet?  When an old boring billfold will just not do, a Jfold wallet will make a strong impression. When it comes out of  his pocket it will  say, ” Yeah, I’m cool.”

> Have a mountain man in your life? Okay, maybe he just likes to act like one?  Wolverine boots are good looking and can withstand a 1000 miles. For reals, it says so right on the boots.

> Here is a great stocking stuffer!  A shoe care kit by Otterwax will keep his shoe collection looking like new. No more excuses!

> Did he play with a Rubix as a kid? The Cubebot from Areaware will keep him entertained at his desk for at least an hour. Time him as he tries to get the robot back into a cube. You may giggle at his expense, just a little.

> A busy business man needs a handsome bag to tote his laptop and files in style. We love this bag from Will Leather Goods.  It’s made to take a beating and will only get better with age.

> We have a manly collection of cuffs from In God We Trust, sans the skulls and spikes. (Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course.)

We hope your holiday season is going well, stay warm everybody!
