Father’s Day

A celebration of all things Fatherly on Sunday.

Dads are cool guys; if you forget Father’s Day, he’ll just shrug it off.

But here’s a gentle reminder. And a few gift ideas.

A WATCH

Ya, ya, he loves his phone, but nothing beats a real watch on the wrist.

MODERN ART COFFEE

What Dad doesn’t love a cup of java?

No, you don’t need a machine. But you do need something he is intrigued by, so he makes it himself. And brings you a cup.

If he loves design, he’s going to love the Chemex – after all, it’s in The Museum of Modern Art.

As gift-giver, you get big cool points.

OUTSIDE ADVENTURER

Dads love the great outdoors. Fresh air, a spirit of adventure –

Well, some are more intrepid than others. The lull of the waves is very soporific – all guys are ace at naps.

You can never go wrong with a page-turner. Pick whatever topic he likes to read about, there’s an APP  a book for that.

Go for real paper.
