Gifts For Dad

Stylish extras update Dad's ensembles in an instant. Gift him a sleek, modern take on aviators he can wear every day. A sporty leather strap watch will become his go-to accessory. Suede slip-on sneakers are easier to wear than lace-ups and a vibrant sock will brighten his day.

Help Dad look and feel good all day long with a sleek comb he can store in his pocket. An invigorating fragrance infused with rhubarb, cedar and amber is a delightful masculine scent that works from morning to night. Get him started on a skincare routine he'll actually follow with a simple three-step kit to cleanse, protect and maintain his handsome mug. Replace his worn-out razors with one complete with triple blades, a chrome-plated handle and sleek design.

If your dad's a jet-setter, give him essentials that'll elevate his travel experience. A beautiful, durable carry-on with built-in charger, proximity sensor, self-weighing technology and speedy wheels make this luggage piece a must-have. A chic modular case keeps passports, cards, wires and tablets organized. Allow him to relax in flight with a portable cocktail kit and Bluetooth earbuds.

Is your father a self-proclaimed gearhead? Wow him with the latest covetable gadget. He'll enjoy a wireless compact speaker with powerful sound and Wi-Fi capability as he rocks out to his tunes in the den. He'll never lose his keys again with Tile Mate, which houses a Bluetooth tracker he can access with an app. The newest GoPro camera now has super-slow motion, faster Wi-Fi connection and promises no more shakey footage thanks to an improved image stabilization system. The Oculus Rift VR goggle will blow his mind, allowing him to virtually step into a game or movie to experience it as if IRL.
