He taught you how to ride a bike and save money. He took you to the park, and helped you learn to drive a car. And he is still teaching us lessons, even if we are 30-years old and married.
Whether he is a musician or an engineer, Dad deserves some special attention this Father's Day weekend.
Here are some of the local gifts we scoped out for Dad this year:
Sunglasses, $120, Salt Lake Running Company
If he's a runner, biker, hiker or snow junkie, he'll certainly like these sunglasses from Salt Lake Running Company. They come with interchangeable lenses that will help him see clearly in almost any lighting. The wrap-around design gives more peripheral coverage for extra protection from the sun.
Garmin 620 Forerunner touchscreen watch, $400, Salt Lake Running Company
This watch is waterproof, and it’s sensitive enough that Dad can operate the touchscreeen with running gloves.
Shaving Set, $258, Tabula Rasa
The Art of Shaving by Myriam Zaoul and Eric Maika, $17, Tabula Rasa
How about a classic shaving set? Tabula Rasa has many different kinds. If he wants to know more about the art of shaving, get him a book like this one by Myriam Zaoui and Eric Malka.
Mugs, $13 each, Cabin Fever
Greeting Card, $6, Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever has some fun and budget-friendly gift ideas, but don't forget the card.
Lamp, $75, Urban Vintage Antiques
If he's into vintage design, he will love Urban Vintage Antiques. With so many options, it's almost impossible not to find something he will love. This lamp will look great in his office, on the bar or in the living room.
Burberry Brit Summer Edition for Men, $62, Macy's
Check out this Burberry Brit Summer Edition for Men at Macy's. It's a refreshing, sparkling interpretation of the classic fragrance.
