Father’s Day is right around the corner! Instead of getting your pops yet another tie, wall clock or monogrammed fill-in-the-blank, go for something handmade, modern and unusual. We’ve got a whole bunch of good stuff in the Brit + Co. Shop for you to check out, but here are our 9 favorite picks for all of our cool dads!
1. Cedar + Sage Candle ($28): Made by the dudes of Manready Mercantile, each of these candles is hand-poured in repurposed whiskey glasses. That’s right. Even candles can be manly :)
2. Unplugged Premium Wine Opener Set ($40): Does your dad think he’s a genius sommelier? Or just a regular wino? Either way, he’ll love this easy-life wine opener made just north of here in Napa Valley.
3. Mantis Chair ($125): It’s a fairly universal fact that all dads love the great outdoors, so it’s a pretty good bet that yours will appreciate a sturdy and portable camping chair.
