Spotify Gift Card (From $10)
Use this gift card to get dad started on his monthly Spotify subscription, which helps speed up hours spent inside a cubicle.
Rapha B&O H6 Headphones ($365)
Music sounds significantly better on these high-quality, over-ear headphones. The comfy sheep leather earpods feel good for hours, and we love the signature Rapha pink cord.
The North Face Access Pack ($235)
Kudos to The North Face for designing a unique commuter pack. We love the swiveling top that pops open with the press of a button for immediate access to everything inside. The aluminum frame gives the pack a solid, defined structure for good organizing, while the pull tabs let you find buried tablets and smartphones with ease.
Behmor Home Brewer ($170)
If you want a totally automated cup of coffee, the Behmor Home Brewer is the place to start. You set everything up at night, then program it to start at 6 am, or whenever, and you’ve got a good cup of coffee by the time you’re ready to go. There’s even an app for it so you can control it remotely.
Lululemon Commission Long Sleeve Button Down *Qwick Oxford ($110)
This dress shirt looks like your standard button-down, but the two-way stretch cotton-Lycra fabric has a huge range of motion and wicks sweat, just in case dad decides to play a little pickup ball on his afternoon break.
The Ridge Carbon Fiber Wallet ($105)
This slim but bomber carbon wallet slips in a front pocket, while a special material embedded within protects against RFID identify theft. Up to twelve cards fit inside and a money clip keeps your cash organized.
Lululemon Evolution Polo ($88)
Encourage Dad to ditch his old starchy polos and try the Evolution which comes in stylish, heathered colorways and is made from a four-way stretch fabric that’s woven with scent-frighting strands of silver.
Arcade Crawford Belt ($36)
The Crawford is business up front and adventure out back. By the buckle, there’s a strip of weather-resistant high-grain leather that looks great with slacks, while the rest of the belt is made from a super stretchy, elastic webbing that works great with mountain bike baggies.
