Father’s Day is June 15th!
Big hugs, sound advice, your favorite home cooked meals–whatever makes your Dad special to you, Father’s Day is the time to let him know! While we are sure Dad has loved all of the ties, wallets and slippers he has gotten over the years, why not go for something he’s not expecting this year? We have put together a collection of Father’s Day Gift Ideas on the website, but wanted to share a few of our favorites with you on the blog. We love these products paired together, but each makes a lovely gift on its own as well!
Also, to show our appreciation for you, our lovely readers, we would love for you to take 10% off your Father’s Day purchase! Use promo code SHOPFORDAD10 at checkout before June 10, 2014! [Please note: If you place your order before 3pm, we will ship it out the same day.

Beer Lover’s Set
We absolutely LOVE this set for the discerning beer drinker and lover of craft brews! Maybe Dad even dabbles in home brewing? If so, this set is a must.
This apron comes in size Large, with adjustable straps. Its “Water Hops Yeast Malt” design is created with a hand cut linocut stamp that is used to print each apron by hand.
Also stamped by hand, but with antique printing blocks, this set of towels is perfect for the kitchen or home bar! Each towel is stamped with a different style of beer, including IPA, Stout, Pilsner, and Porter.
Shave and Scent Set
Okay, so maybe candles and soap are not your typical Father’s Day gift. But we love these products by The Onyx Exchange, and we think Dad will too!
Using fragrance oils, The Onyx Exchange has achieved truly unique candle scents. These 4oz. Soy Wax Candles Tins are available in three Dad-Friendly scents: Tobacco, Leather, and Bourbon.
Their handcrafted shave soap is formulated to hydrate and refresh skin, and is fortified with kaolin clay to create a good slip so that the razor glides smoothly.
Cooking and Cuisine Set
Is Dad at home in the kitchen? Any lover of cooking and cuisine would feel absolutely spoiled by this lovely set.
Artisans at Vermont Farm Table use time-honored technique and a simple, traditional style, resulting in an heirloom-quality product that you’ll have, love, and use for life. The beautiful hand joinery gives the pieces two cross-running lines, allowing the wood to expand and contract while keeping the board from warping due to humidity.
Farmhouse Pottery’s Maine Farmed Sea Salt is harvested fresh from the ocean and sun-dried on Bailey Island, Maine. The mineral rich saline waters of the Gulf of Maine give it a crisp and unique flavor.
Nature Lover Set
I know, I know, again with the candles! But these Vermont Wood candles are perfect for lovers of wood and nature and the feeling of spending time with the trees. Available in Birch or Cedar scents, these candles are made in small batches with pure essential oils, fine fragrance oils, and American farmed soy wax. Each candle is hand poured into reclaimed vintage glass, and comes in a recycled letter pressed package.
Since ancient times, people have used the heartwood of old pine trees to create warmth. Each bundle comes wrapped in screen printed Belgian Linen, handcrafted by Cincinnati-based Maker VisuaLingual, and offers enough material to light 50-100 fires. To use, whittle a stick down to 5-10 matchstick sized pieces and use as tinder under a pile of kindling in your campfire or fireplace.
