The Great Father’s Day Gift Guide

This weekend, it’s all about Dad... ’s newfound appreciation for hammocks, speaker leather and other Father’s Day magnificence. Right this way into the Father’s Day–gifting Hall of Fame.

UD - The Latest in Hammock Tech

FOR THE EXTREME LOUNGER

The Latest in Hammock Tech

Dads and hammocks: they simply... go together. And it just so happens that this hammock can be strapped to almost anything, and is also a tent. It’s waterproof and bug-proof—basically the combination of ruggedness and sleeping only Dad could perfect. Let the unabashed dad-glamping commence.

UD - A Bluetooth Speaker, Leatherized

FOR THE CLASSIC ROCKER

A Bluetooth Speaker, Leatherized

Zeppelin. Parliament. Lorde. Whatever your dad’s into, he needs a leather-wrapped Bluetooth speaker to listen to it on. This one, in fact. It’s meant to look like a ’60s transistor radio... wrapped in glorious cow.
411:
$150, Henley Brands Wireless Speaker, available at Old Hollywood, 99 Franklin St (between Greenpoint and Milton), Brooklyn, 718-389-0837, and 250 Broome St (between Ludlow and Orchard), 646-454-0166
UD - Cufflinks No One Else Has

FOR THE ETERNALLY NATTY

Cufflinks No One Else Has

“Oh, look, you have the same old-timey, painted-silver-buggy-car cufflinks as I do.”
—No dad in history

Which is why you ought to pick up these vintage cuff-securing beauties from Holland & Sherry. Henry Ford would want these.
411:
$425, Buggy Cufflinks, available at Holland & Sherry Bespoke, 209 Elizabeth St (between Spring and Prince), 212-343-1261
UD - The Classic Tie Gift, but Way Better

FOR THE EXECUTIVE

The Classic Tie Gift, but Way Better

You can give your dad a tie, or you can give him one of these hand-painted, raw-canvas, polka-dot ties from the downtown curio wizards at Partners & Spade. It’s your choice, really.
411:
$125, Hand-Painted Raw-Canvas Ties, available from Partners & Spade, 324 Lafayette St, 2nd Fl (between Houston and Bleecker), 646-861-2827, email here to purchase
UD - A Custom Surfboard from Brooklyn

FOR SHREDDING THE GNAR

A Custom Surfboard from Brooklyn

Don’t worry if your dad doesn’t surf yet. Just tell him his new angular-nosed board was handmade by a couple of architects in Brooklyn, and it was a custom order. That’s a thing they do. “World’s Greatest Dad” surfboard, you’ve just been invented.
411:
$700-$1,000, Hand-Shaped Surfboards, available from Wax/Surf Co, 321 Rutledge St (between Broadway and Harrison)
