Our favorite all purpose bag is called The Franklin Duffle and is made by a company called State Bags. Whether he is bringing it to the gym or on a weekend getaway, these masculine and attractive bags are the perfect fit. An added bonus is that for every State bag purchased, State hand-delivers a backpack filled with essential tools for success to an American child in need. We call that a win-win!

The easiest gift to purchase for the dad that has everything is a shirt and tie. But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Go for a shirt that has a fun pattern on the inside cuffs like this one by Ted Baker or a tie with bright colors or a pattern he wouldn’t buy for himself like this one by Nordstrom. Who says dad can’t be fashionable too?

For the active dad, consider purchasing a FitBit fitness tracker. These wristbands can follow his heart rate, active minutes throughout the day, length of his runs and even his sleep habits. It can become addicting for them to see how much they are moving throughout the day! Priced reasonably as well, this gift is sure to be a hit.

Another classic gift for dad is sunglasses. Whether he likes the classic Ray Ban Wayfarer or is willing to try a funky pair like these Gucci Aviators, sunglasses will definitely be a hit. Try a pair of polarized ones for an extra layer of protection.

For a perfect last minute gift, consider giving dad a few hours of personal shopping or a closet consultation by Tara! Most men don’t enjoy shopping as much as women do, so having the option of getting clothes delivered to try on in the comfort of his own home would be ideal. Gift certificates are available in any denomination.
