Last Ditch Gifts for Father’s Day. Get In & Get Out! #shopping #giftforalldads

This is that last Father’s Day Gift Guide I am going to write. I realized I had forgotten some key items from the post last night. So you get another post right which goes from fashion to food and everything in between!

Dads shave. Daily. Unless they can handle the itch of a 3 day growth OR have an easy job too that says that x day growth is ok. (Not everyone does!) So let’s go with a clean-cut look and check out the best from Baxter of California!

K.Bell Socks 

Fun stuff for guys isn’t always seen in his sock drawer- but now it can be.. courtesy of K. Bell Socks.! These fun -and goofy- socks are very comfy. (Heck I got a couple pairs for my partner!) SO nifty and a slew of different designs so that you can gift the ones that suit your dad the best!

Animal Nuts! deserves the Alligator socks!


For those who are tech junkies, check out the ROBOT socks!

Tons of more conservative and wild patterns for men, women, and kids!

For the oenophiles out there (wine lovers), they deserve VINLUXE.
What is a VinLuxe? It is the most important thing you can give someone who loves wine!
This is the latest product from Andre Lorent and it’s for speedy decanting of wine while helping it breathe!


The VinLuxe wine aerator distinguishes itself from all other aerators on the market because of it globally patented three-step aeration process. Each glass of wine poured through the VinLuxe goes through three separate aeration filters, first, the Umbrella Aeration System to open the wine, then the wine filters through 32 tiny holes that introduces even more oxygen to the wine as well as filtering out any sediment, and lastly, the wine passes through the aeration tube and straight into the glass.

Check out this VinLuxe Aerator and get one for Dad! He will love drinking the wine after he has used this device!

Alara Shirts
Shirts are always something Dads need but he’s not often thrilled with the “need” or the selection. Dad never tried Alara shirts with a range in sizing (classic or slim), patterns, prints and solids (including many WHITE shirts done in Egyptian cotton) and all the accessories men need.

When Dad needs a white shirt– and they are hot for summer– this is the place to get a high-quality shirt in so many styles and fabrications, it will be hard to choose WHICH to buy!

Caskers Spirits

Caskers is a great site to purchase stellar spirits for Dad. The question is always what to buy.
Here are a couple suggestions courtesy of about what to buy the DAD in your life! Caskers happens to be having a major sale for Father’s Day. They can provide some insight into what Dads like. So check out the site here:Caskers


Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey

Killer Bourbons are not easy to find.. and this one is it and it’s one sale! Almost the entire site is on sale!

Steve says, “If losing is not in your father’s vocabulary, then this is the bourbon for him. Having won “Whiskey of the Year” five times over and scoring 97 points from Wine Enthusiast, this single barrel isn’t familiar with losing either. Aged for nearly 10 years under the intense Kentucky sun, this bourbon has an aroma of spicy oak, cinnamon and clove that leads into notes of caramel, pecan, and roasted nuts.”

Tasting Notes: Aroma of spicy oak, cinnamon and clove that gives way to notes of caramel, pecan and roasted nuts on the palate. Initial flavors lead to touches of creamy vanilla and honeyed oak, and finish with a hint of cinnamon spice.

Awards & Accolades:
Wine Enthusiast: 97 Points
5x Time “Whiskey of the Year” Winner


Barr Hill Gin

This is an impeccable gin!

Steve says, “For the father with the sweet tooth, Barr Hill Gin is the way to go. Made using raw, organic Vermont honey, this gin is a celebration of one farmer’s special connection to his land and earned the Double Gold Medal at the 2012 New York International Spirits Competition.”

Tasting Notes: Round and viscous on the palate with notes of juniper and honey lingering on the finish.
Awards & Accolades: New York International Spirits Competition: 2012 Double Gold Medal

Snacking Dads

The Gilded Nut Snack Co.’s seasoned pistachios
Does Dad love to snack? (Of course he does, what dad doesn’t?).
Here are some great treats for DAD that you can order today and should have hopefully in time for the weekend!


The Gilded Nut Snack Co. offers flavored pistachios that are crafted in small batches with only the purest ingredients. Of the few flavored pistachios products on the market, most are brined in solutions that contain ingredients like dextrose, maltodextrin, yeast extract and other flavor or shelf life enhancers that leave little flavor – or nutrition – behind. The Gilded Nut Snack Co. gently tumbles its pistachios in cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and whole herbs and spices.

The current pistachio flavors include
Mediterranean Herb
Habanero Heat
Sea Salt + Pepper

Catherine York, co-founder of The Gilded Nut Snack Company, says: “We think these snacks would make an ideal and different gift for Dad this Father’s Day. They’re wholesome and nutritious and don’t have any added preservatives, refined sugar or other unhealthy ingredients.”

These great nuts sound so tasty. My bet for Father’s Day (or my tastebuds actually) is Sea Salt and Pepper.


The Gilded Nut Snack Co. products are available online at and in over 100 retail locations, including premium hotels and resorts such as The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, CA; Sea Island Resort in Sea Island, GA; Mandarin Oriental Miami; Falling Rock at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, PA; The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, CA; Hilton Americas in Houston, TX; Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA; Loews Coronado Bay Resort in Coronado, CA; Hilton Chicago in Chicago, IL; Camden Harbour Inn in Camden, ME; and Cavallo Point in Sausalito, CA.

Visit The Gilded Nut Snack Co. at and on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and The Gilded Nut Snack Co.’s blog.

There you have it! Another HUGE list of things you can buy the Dad(S) in your life online or in stores. Do note that I was well aware of the date/time of this post and that many things won’t be in hand for Father’s Day.
You can just tell your dad that the item has been ordered. What it does do is allow you to check back in with the Dad in you life and see when it’s arrived. This gives him a second round of Father’s Day celebration and a chance to spend some time with YOU! (If it’s any of the food or beverages, you will be happy about that!)

PS. Don’t forget to tell Dad: “Happy Father’s Day!”
