Father’s Day 2023: Gift Ideas for the Big Guy

We put together a list of Father’s Day gifts that fit every father’s style and personality.

Every guy that works with numbers or words deserves a good pen. We discovered an array of them at Pen Heaven. Our choices for this holiday are the Caran d’Ache Léman Grand Bleu Rollerball Pen. Refined and sleek, this pen from Switzerland is a conversation piece when signing important contracts or just doodling on a napkin. It is sliver plated and transparent blue lacquer and comes with black ink refill. Perfect for the father who knows business and style.

Since 1921, collectors have viewed The Parker Duofold Big Red Ballpoint Pen as an icon. We just think it looks awesome and masculine with its Venetian red resin. Perfect for Dad when asking for an autograph from his favorite sports team.

For the guy who needs a kick, perhaps the Wacaco Nanopresso is the perfect gift. What’s interesting about this espresso maker is that it doesn’t heat the water. That is done separately and then you pour the water into the hand-held press to dispense the perfect cup of espresso — this system provides everything but the water and favorite coffee.


Father’s Day coincides with the beginning of summer. So why not get him a new hat. Wallaroo Hats has many styles from Fedoras to the Wide Brim. In particular we like their Justin hat (pictured). Kudos to their Outback and Explorer styles, and several hats offer the ever-important UPF protection from the sun’s rays.

Give your dad some shade. Not that shade but a hot new pair of sunglasses by J+S. They will help spruce up his summer attire. Their styles run the gamut from retro round to sleek sports and classic aviators. With regards to the aviators, we love the classic style and think it’s the perfect gift for the dad who is the fixer of everything, provider, protector, and weekend warrior.

Give dad a break from the grill and make a reservation at one of New York City’s best steakhouses. Just steps away from the bright lights of Broadway, this NY institution combines the finest cuts of meat with Old-World New York charm for everyone who enters the establishment. We believe that Gallaghers Steakhouse is a celebratory place that just may turn your first dinner here into a family tradition. We’d be remiss not to recommend the Bone-In New York Sirloin Sliced and NY Cheesecake for dessert.

New shoes. Every dad deserves a pair of classic new shoes. We’ve discovered that so many men are not always prepared for formal/special events. We recommend the iconic wingtips from Bruno Marc. The style is evergreen and after several tests, they are very comfortable from walking on pavement to punishing the dance floor. This gift will help Dad be prepared for the next big occasion. Yes, he may even dance.

Keep Pop’s credit cards and cash in order with Thrills from the Land Down Under, Australia. This brand offers a wide selection of items for the young father — we selected their classic wallet. It’s made of genuine leather and pocketed to fit many cards plus baby pictures. Perhaps it can be used as a surprise within a surprise by hiding tickets to his favorite sports event, concert, or a personal note of thanks.


Give dad the gift of golf. Call your travel agent or get online and book a trip to one of America’s best golf resorts. Arizona is home to over 300 high-caliber golf courses. Check out the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort. It’s actually fit for a king. We also recommend Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla near San Diego, CA. This beautiful slice of heaven is directly on the Pacific Ocean. Both of these suggestions have superior accommodations, high-end pro shops, and clubhouses. We believe that your father’s expression upon receiving this gift will speak volumes.
