Father’s Day Gift Guide 2021

Father’s Day is fast approaching. I’m sharing some unique Father’s Day Gifts for 2021. This is a collection of gifts idea for dad from a mix of shops including a lot of small shops. As well as gifts for all the different types of dads in your life.

ONE. Rugged and Dapper Face Scrub – Creator, Ryan, was looking for a product to protect his skin from the harsh conditions of his construction job. He tried the top men’s skincare brands but nothing seemed to hold up. So he and his wife Janine began developing a no-nonsense line of skincare products for men. Made in the USA with natural and organic ingredients.

TWO. Fermented Vegetable Kit – This kit is perfect for a foodie, whether they are a first-time fermentor or someone who has done it for years.

THREE. Peanut Butter Sampler – Includes 6 different artisan peanut butter flavors. Made by Kathy Weed, who began making artisanal peanut butter to teach her children about having a small business and has since expanded into a much larger peanut-butter-making-venture.

FOUR. Terry Sweatshirt – These are sold by Sault New England, one of my husband’s favorite shops. I always get asked where Michael shops, and this is one of his go-to’s. They have a Boston and Portsmouth, NH location. Also love their hats.

FIVE. Personalized Ceramic Travel Mug – Laura makes beautiful pottery out of Minnesota. Along with this travel mug, she makes other amazing pieces, so definitely check out her entire shop.

SIX. Personalized Leather Toiletry Bag. Handmade in Nevada, these leather toiletry bags are a great gift for any guy. Michael was gifted a similar one years ago and still uses it daily to hold all his stuff.

SEVEN. Beard Oil – This beard oil is made by Feto Soap, out of Austin, TX, and owned by Lisa Chouinard. She’s been making handmade artisanal soap since 2003 and has won numerous awards as well as had her work featured on HGTV, PBS, Women’s Day, and more! She also makes shaving sets!

EIGHT. Micro-dose Hot Sauces – Great for a foodie or hot sauce lover! The founder of this company, Robyn Jasko, accidentally planted too many peppers one year and that’s how she started making hot sauces. These micro-doses include pure pepper extract, a rare, single strain pepper variety, organically grown on her farm which means they don’t have to add a ton of fillers like vinegar to their hot sauces.

NINE. Baseball Map Glasses – Each set of glasses has a map of your chosen MLB stadium in the team’s two main colors with the team’s logo in the bottom. Made right here in the USA. Baseball not your recipient’s thing? They also have city map glasses and glasses that pay homage to the founding fathers. See their full line here.

TEN. Rad Dad T-Shirt -For the “Rad Dad” in your life, I love the fun graphic and color of this shirt.

ELEVEN. Exhaust-dad T-Shirt – You guys know I LOVE Mom Culture stuff and this is their dad shirt. I got Michael one for Christmas and he loves it.

TWELVE. Handmade Leather Wallet – Handmade in Texas using a traditional two-needle double hand-stitching technique (yep, each one is HAND STITCHED!).

THIRTEEN. Custom Renaissance Portrait – These are hilarious! I got one for my dad and he freakin’ loved it. You take your dad’s face and they insert it into a famous old-time renaissance portrait.

FOURTEEN. StoryWorth, a Personal Memoir – this is a company that sends a question prompt every week for a year, then at the end creates it into a memoir and sends the hardcover book of your personal memoir. I got it for my dad for Christmas and he loves it. He’s super into doing each prompt every week. It’s going to be so neat when it’s done.

FIFTEEN. Tobacco Vanilla Soy Candle – Ok, Michael might kill me for telling you this but…he loves candles. When we run out he casually suggests I get more LOL. I even left one of my candles in his office one day and he started burning it on his own every day. I love these handmade ones and their scent and style is a little more masculine than Bath and Body Works.

SIXTEEN. Face on a Sock – These are hilarious, put your face, grandkids, pets, anything on a pair of socks!

SEVENTEEN: Lightening charger cable – Charge things in a fraction of the time. Perfect for the guy who is always running low on battery.

EIGHTEEN: True Classic T-Shirt Set – I got Michael a set of these and he LOVES them. A great classic tee.

NINETEEN: Movie Buff Mug – This mug is TOO fun for a movie-loving guy. It has images of items from 50 iconic movies (answers are on the bottom of the mug).

TWENTY- Cast Iron Grill – This actually isn’t just a grill, it’s a wok, smoker, skillet, braiser, roaster, deep fryer, slow cooker, and stockpot, all packed together for simple transport.

TWENTY-ONE: Stone Blade – Hand-forged in Idaho, inspired by a traditional ulu knife. The knife has a unique curved, easy-grip handle to do everything from slicing cheese, chopping fresh herbs and vegetables, or cutting pizza slices.
