Robert Verdi hosted another ‘Tweet This’ Father’s Day gift ideas party at his LUXE Laboratory in Manhattan and invited 40 of New York’s top bloggers including our very own Accessories Council member Anne Agoren from izzi bag, who was in the final 6 of the Shorty Award nominations of Twitter back in March.
The first of the gift ideas was for ‘The Inspired Dad’ a John Bartlett – Tiny Tim Tee, John Bartlett found his Muse at North Shore Animal League in the form of Tiny Tim, a 3 legged dog he rescued and who has now become his design inspiration & company logo. John now donates a percentage of proceeds to the NSAL so who better to benefit from Father’s Day than man’s best friend. The Tees retail at $40.
The Modern Dad gift idea was Jonathan Adler Pop Candle. There are 3 fresh garden scents from Tomato leaves, Cilantro and Grapefruit. The votives double up as a drinking glass when the candle is finished. Retail value is $38
The Classic Dad gift idea was a wonderful smelling fragrance from Kenneth Cole called Vintage Black, it retails at $70 but is worth every cent. It is available right now in Macys New York. I think the fragrance has the perfect balance for every dad with its citrus woody blends effervescent, masculine woods and soft skin musks.
For dad on the go Robert’s suggestion was New Vaseline for MEN. The line is quick absorbing, non greasy body and face lotions that fortifies skin. So any dad is going to look good and smell great and at a cost of $15 this is a really good deal to consider if you are struggling for a gift idea.
The Professional Dad is a difficult one you might think, but Robert came up with the suggestion of giving him an ‘on the go grooming experience’ John Allan’s renowned destinations that combine the atmosphere of a private club with a full grooming outpost for men. John Allan’s treatment can take just 15 minutes, includes a head massage, shampoo / conditioning treatment, haircut and manicure. To finish it all off you can even get a shoe shine and a beverage. If you decide to get a gift voucher for dad then you will get a guy-tested airline approved travel pack thrown in, so at $65 this is a double gift for any dad.
To go hand in hand with the above gift is the Jet-setting dad gift suggestion the Coach DOPP Kit, the transatlantic travel kit is a travel kit no dad would want to be without. The lovely leather bag can house all dad’s essential for the bathroom whilst travelling and at only $128 it is an absolute steal.
Now the Savvy Dad will need a Rowenta Travel Iron, because Mom is not with him on a business trip he can make sure he still looks chic and crisp to go to his meetings. The iron is lightweight at only 1.65lbs and is totally compact folding to just 7.8″. The gift will cost you only $40 and is available at their website.
The Stylish Dad has to have this next gift idea and I can actually see Robert Verdi wearing these HUGO BOSS Aviator Sunglasses, they only just hit the stores so get on their website to find a store near you. I think the sun glasses are very flattering and I understand that dad can change the lens if he wants to put his prescription glasses inside. The lenses are polarized that reduce glare, so great for driving or for the dad that loves water sports. An absolute steal at $148
Dapper Dad is going to be in heaven if you can push your budget to £180 as Joseph Abboud suits at JCPenney are really so chic and totally affordable.The 2 button front jacket has 6 pockets, styling to perfection any upto date Dad. I think this is the gift for my dad, every time he looks down at his suit he will think of me.
Young at Heart Dad has to have these Jan Leslie skull & cross bone cuff links, they are only $115 and I really think they are a fun gift, Jan Leslie’s whimsical designs let his personality and sense of humor shine through. They will look great with a chic suit for the office or just with a crisp shirt and jeans for the casual look.
Tasteful Dad’s gift suggestion from Robert Verdi was the Cole Haan Seton Tuxedo Wallet, in rich calf skin leather will make any dad proud to carry this wallet. It can hold 4 slide pockets and one currency sleeve, it is really slim and can fit into dads pocket and is a steal at $75.
Sleek Dad’s need to be kept on time and the Skagen Watch is a perfect memorable gift at a price point that will not break the bank at only $145. It is made of really high quality materials and is very sleek and clean looking available in a store near you.
DIY dad’s are really hard to find a gift for and this is perfect Stoner Solutions invisible glass cleaner. His car will be the best kept in the neighborhood and I know my dad likes to always get those Grand Children finger marks off his windows, with one swipe the kit removes effortlessly oil, dirt, smudges, pollen, sap and bugs. Just spray on, leave and wipe would could be any easier. The kit is $30 so go to the website and order online today.
Gourmand Dad’s need the McClures Pickles to make the perfect Bloody Mary at $10 we can all afford to throw this into the mix! It really is not for the faint hearted but goes great with a Sunday BBQ. Just add to Vodka stir and drink, what can be better? check out their website.
The Good Times Dad certainly needs the KLUCKR download app for his mobile iPhone, so never mind where he is at the game on his way home late one night but he can always find the Chicken wings. The great thing it is free.
The last gift idea is for the Handy Dad and I never saw so many tools in such a small case.The Leatherman Skeletool is a must for the dad who is always asking mom if she has seen his screwdriver or his pliers! It weighs only 5 ounces and will make any dad into a hero.
