This month you’ll want to pick up some of our cool finds for dad, as well as yourself.

Gucci GG Cufflinks


Nothing looks sharper when you’re dressing for an important meeting than to finish off your suit with some classic – and did we mention classy? – cufflinks. Gucci nails it with these simple, smart Double G Cufflinks. Made in sterling silver, they also make great Father’s Day gifts.

Marvelous Marvis Mouth


Marvis is a classic brand of toothpaste that has been keeping smiles bright and breath fresh for years. The Strong Mint flavor leaves your breath fresh and is said to be the best remedy for smoker’s breath. So if you’re giving dad a hand carved pipe to celebrate his special day, throw in a tube of Marvis to keep mom happy.

Sound Check


Onkyo’s new TX-SR605 is the premier mid-range system that can actually decode the new sound formats from Dolby and DTS which happen to be utilized by Blu-ray and Hi Def-DVDs. It can also hold about twice as much information as the run of the mill system. So for the sound-system techno-geek in you, that means less fidelity-degrading compression…which will be music to your ears. The system also has “automatic speaker calibration,” which uses a microphone that scans the room in order to determine which level offers the best sound. Of course the system provides the must-haves of HD video, surround sound, and is Sirius and XM radio compatible. If you don’t get one for dad, get yourself one and at least invite him over to enjoy some tunes!

Nomad: For the wanderer in you


Z Brand has the best relaxed fit basic Nomad Twill Cargo Pants. The Surplus color is that just-right shade of Army green. Constructed of 100% cotton, these are great summer pants – perfect with flipflops or sneakers. Visit to purchase.
