“A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.”

Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 15!) and if you want to show that dad of yours just how special he is, then you have some gift planning to do. Sure, you could opt for the $5.99 “World’s Best Dad” mug (well, if you’re 10) but doesn’t your dad deserve something a little more fabulous? If your answer is “heck yes, he does!”— then take a look at our nifty gift ideas that will not only spoil your father silly, but also put you in serious running for the “best child ever” title.

Take a look:

1. Treat Him to a Mini-Vacation.


Arrange a getaway for dad at a lavish California resort. The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa is a fabulous choice for a Father’s Day destination with packages like the Unlimited Golf for Two plan and spa options that include massages and a Gentleman’s Facial. Another fantastic golfing destination is the Half Moon Bay Golf Links, which partners with several luxury hotels for an unforgettable mini-vacay.

2.  Upgrade His Briefcase

Coach Briefcase

If your father is like most, he’s had the same beaten-up briefcase or “man-bag” for more years than he’ll admit. Treat him to an upgrade with a gorgeous new bag like Coach’s Bleecker Slim Briefcase or Prada’s stunning Saffiano Leather Messenger bag. For a more traditional look, Guccis black diamante leather briefcase is also a handsome choice.

3. Introduce Him to Watches with Style

Rose Gold Watch

Watches have come such a long way in the style department, and your dad should have one that really reflects how cool and unique he is. For a true luxury timepiece, check out the ultra-gorgeous rose-gold-accented watch by 88 Rue du Rhone or if your father is more of a modern, techie-type, the Pebble Steel smart watches will completely mesmerize him.

4. Motivate Him with a Fitness Tracker


Fitness trackers are all the rage and dad should definitely have one of his very own. The newest models track activity, burned calories and even sleep patterns. Check out the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band (only $129 on Amazon) or the Fitbit One Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Tracker ($88 on Amazon) and help keep your dad on track with fitness.

5. Send Him a Wine Club Subscription


For the wine-connoisseur father, you can’t go wrong with a good California wine club subscription. Clubs like the Santa Barbara-based Gold Metal Wine Club and the Ventura-based California Wine Club offer several subscription levels, delivering top wines from small California vineyards at excellent prices.

6. Teach Him the Art of Pampering

Anthonys Skin care

If your father still washes his face with an old bar of Irish Spring and shaves with a rusty can of Barbasol Foam, it might be time to introduce him to the wonderful world of male skincare lines. Companies like Aveda, Anthony™ Brands and Jack Black® have some of the best “dad pampering” products out there, so put together a gift basket and show him how masculine skincare can be.
