Father’s Day is fast approaching, and as you scramble to find a suitable gift for the man who raised you (no pressure), HBX is here to rescue you from falling into the trap of cliched, unimaginative gifting. Put down those department store ties and cufflinks, which will no doubt take a place of honor at the bottom of your father’s drawers. Time to step up your game with these home essentials that will please even the father who has it all.
Spice it up
Candles are a household staple for any gentleman, and the Black Wings Candle from wings + horns will be a crowd-pleaser for all fathers with minimalist taste. With its rugged masculine scent, featuring notes of tobacco, sandalwood and saddle leather, the candle is perfect to spice things up around the house. The Cannabis Candle from (MALIN+GOETZ) is also on offer, which is sure to have a more than relaxing effect.
Looking put together for work is routine for every father, but you can help him change things up with these styling products and accessories. For the dad who cares about his hair, the S2 Shine Finish Medium Hold Pomade from Patrick’s will undoubtedly give his quiff a much needed lift. Featuring the exclusive Patrick’s Recovery Compound that remedies hair loss, this product is a must for fathers with a sparse head of hair. If your old man is a stickler for punctuality, the Winston Regal Watch from KOMONO is an affordable yet elegant piece for dad to finish off his ensemble, and of course to keep him on time.
Nobody likes lugging their laptop to work, but you can turn your father’s burden into a fashion statement with this sleek laptop sleeve from MUJJO. Crafted from tan leather and grey felt, this case is a classic piece that will complement any suit and tie ensemble. The Thom Browne City Wallet, made from calf-leather, is also a minimalist storage solution for all of your dad’s knick knacks. The wallet is lined with red, white and blue silk, lending the classic accessory a colorful and luxe touch.
Summer is coming up and if your dad is the active type, he will no doubt be yearning to escape to the great outdoors. Keep him shaded with these handmade Timeless Sunglasses from Han Kjøbenhavn, which take inspiration from simple but aesthetically pleasing Danish design. Of course, all outdoor activities require constant hydration, and there’s no better (or more aesthetically pleasing) way to get your daily eight glasses than from this Matte Black Vacuum Insulated Bottle from MIIR. The bottle is capable of keeping beverages cold for 24 hours, allowing your dad to cool off in style.
At the end of the day, all a dad wants to do is put his feet up and open his familiar newspaper. Give your father a better read with HYPEBEAST Magazine, which provides insider information on the best men’s fashion and lifestyle products out there right now. The latest copy, titled “The Artisanal Issue,” puts a spotlight on notable craftsmen across industries from luxe sneaker brand Hender Scheme to singer John Mayer, making for an insightful but relaxing read.
