Father’s Day Gift Guide 2017

Celebrate Father's Day

We so appreciate the fathers in our lives, don’t we?  Father’s Day (June 18th!) is an opportunity to make dad feel like a million bucks, even though his worth is so much more than that to everyone that knows and loves him.

Here are some fun suggestions for gifts that we got to test out* and love this year!

kammock rooI am absolutely loving the Kammock Roo camping hammock from rugged outdoor gear retailer Kammock.  Yes, you can take it anywhere you dare to go on outdoor adventures, but you can also use it on a leisurely day off at home.  Imagine giving dad the gift of total relaxation, you know he deserves some time to rest and recuperate from all his stresses and cares.  This hammock is highly durable, tear resistant, and made for the outdoors long enough to last a lifetime.  Affordable and light weight, this gift is one that keeps on giving.  You can pick a variety of fun colors, whichever is dad’s favorite!  While you are checking out the Roo, be sure to look at all their other fun camping gear…..I know this family would love what they have to offer!

We always love the eclectic gifts you can find at Hammacher Schlemmer!  It is really a place where you can pick up something for the person who has everything.  Lots of fun gadgets can always be found on their site.  This year, I love the tabletop fireplace.  This is a portable, clean-burning fireplace that can be used both indoors or out.  Great for entertaining or relaxing and unwinding.  It is very sleek and elegant looking, fitting into just about any decor. You can purchase the special fuel separately from Hammacher Schlemmer, and the flame can be adjusted to prolong burn time.

Victorinox Swiss Army is always a great choice for gifts, as their high quality, luxury line never disappoints.  For Father’s Day this year, I love the idea of a beautiful new piece of luggage for those dads that travel on business or even just vacationing with their families. The Lexicon 2.0 Dual-Caster Global Carry On is a sleek and sophisticated carry on bag that can fit quite a bit for it’s small stature, using the Pack More System offering four different packing solutions. The outside is made of durable earth friendly ForteLux and TourMax ballistic nylon, which is also water resistant. It is also made for easy portability of electronics, making it the perfect gift for dad!  The wheels on this piece make it exceptionally easy to cart around, as they can turn 360 degrees.  I absolutely love this piece of luggage!

Victorinox_INOX Pro Diver Bracelet_241784.jpgFor a super nice gift, consider the I.N.O.X. Professional Diver Steel Bracelet.  Great for those that like the finer things, this watch is perfect for those that are rugged, but enjoy looking good, too.  This watch is actually made for diving, having surpassed 130 stringent  diving-focused horological tests. It even allows for an extension element in the bracelet to fit over a diving suit. It also features a “jelly fish” bumper that has a magnified effect for increased visibility and it comes with an unidirectional rotating bezel with count-up scale. Swiss made, it’s stainless steel bracelet and sapphire crystal face make it durable and beautiful all at once. I love the striking colors–pick from black, yellow, red, or blue. This is certain to be a favorite gift for a long time to come!

Have a sports fan in your home?  You will definitely want to check out all the great sports fan merchandise on The Northwest!

Though not what you think of when it comes to typical Father’s Day gifts, you can always send dad a bouquet of gorgeous blossoms to let him know you  are thinking of him.  Who doesn’t love a delivery of cheerful colors?  BloomNation is a group of florists all over the nation that work together to bring you just what  you are looking for–whether it is for moms, dads, or any other special occasion.  Look at this dad-themed delivery!


I love the chalkboard vase and accompanying chalk for kids to write a special message to their favorite father.  One of the partners of BloomNation, The Flower Basket, did a beautiful job creating a cheerful, yet masculine, arrangement of flowers to brighten anyone’s day.  There was nothing to unpack or uncrate, everything was fresh, lovely, and fragrant. Each creation is the florist’s very own, nothing stock or manufactured.  Just the talents of a floral specialist who knows how to make everything they touch so pretty! Another cool thing, is that even though you can order online, you are shopping locally in your own community through BloomNation’s partner florists.  Sometimes, they can even arrive on the same day as your order!

A happy reminder when walking in the door that a father lives here and is very loved and appreciated!
