It’s common that people don’t know what to get Dad for Father’s Day. It’s also common that Dad ends up getting a pair or socks or a tie or even a coffee mug. Now look, there’s actually nothing wrong with any of those things IF that’s something that the old man actually likes! (Personally I love socks. And coffee. And bowties.)

I’m going to throw out a few ideas for Father’s Day for those of you scratching your head as to what to get your husband, dad, grandfather or even crazy Uncle Tony who was a real father figure in your formative years. Let’s do this.

You can never go wrong with at least getting the old man a card — jeez guys, that’s easy enough. My recommendation: hop on over to Golden Fox Goods and choose from an assortment of Father’s Day cards, as well as many others for all your other celebratory needs.


You’re bound to have a man in your life with a beard so lay off telling him how handsome he is when he shaves. Embrace his mountain man side and gift him something from Beard Buddy. I recommend the Small Starter Pack which includes beard wash and beard oil. I personally use it and love it. And to make it even better, BEARD BUDDY HAS A SPECIAL FOR TWINK +SIS CUSTOMERS! Enter discount code “TSDAD” at checkout and save an additional 20% off your entire order!


I’ve never seen a guy that didn’t cool as hell in a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. Am I right? So I’m pretty sure that Pops will dig these super rad folding ones in whatever style you choose. My vote is matte black because everything looks best in matte black.


Is your Dad a hipster? Of course he is. So he can definitely pull off wearing these insanely rad Cosmos Joggers from The Quiet Life. It really is ok to wear sweats all day and go out to the market in them and even to work and not take them off for like 5 days in a row. My bet is that big Poppa is gonna do just that once he’s slides these bad boys on (I have mine on right now). If they seem too wild, grab him a hoodie or a hat - there’s tons of stuff to choose from but it sells out quick so don’t sleep! 


Got a shutter bug always taking pictures of you & the kids? Maybe it’s time for a new camera bag. Domke makes some of the best & most rugged camera bags around. Personally I like the Little Bit Smaller Bag which is the perfect size for any DLSR and a couple of lenses. Choose from different colors and styles. 


Maybe the guy in your life is like me and spends a lot of time at his computer and desk. Why not spruce up his work area with a little green?! Concrete Geometric hand crafts beautiful planters in a variety of shapes and sizes. I have two of them.

Concrete Geometric is also offering a special discount for Twink + Sis readers! From now until June 16th, enter promo code “POP2015” for 20% off your entire order!


For those audiophile guys, I’ve got a great gift! Pro-ject Audio Systems make some of the sleekest, most modern looking turntables on the market. He can spin his new vinyl all day long and with the USB option, he can digitize those rare, vintage albums! Choose from an assortment of colors. The Essential comes in a matte black option so there’s no question what my choice would be there.


Lastly, maybe Dad or Hubby don’t NEED anything - so get them out of the house DOING something they’ve always wanted to do. How about a Stunt Driving course?! Are you kidding me?! What guy wouldn’t want to learn how to do that?! Don’t worry he won’t pull any of those tricks while driving the little ones to school… yeah right.


Today's post is all about the man in your life! We are super excited to have our guest contributor - artist/cassette label owner/entrepreneur Joe McKay, sharing his picks for the coolest gifts to get your guy this Valentine's Day. 

Shaving is way out so go ahead and skip that dopp kit. Beard Buddy keeps your man's beard from being weird. Also, the beard oil's secret ingredients are sure to include some type of aphrodisiac. 

The olloclip 4-in-1 Lens for iPhone 6/6 Plus has 4 advanced-optic lenses that works on both front and rear-facing cameras. It also has 3 different clips on it so you don’t lose it.


I guarantee he'll let you throw away those ratty old house shoes he got from CVS once he puts these Ugg Men's Olsen Slippers on. 

It's got a heart on it and it's COMME des GARÇONS soooo that pretty much equals Valentine's Day - PLAY COMME DES GARÇONS® CARDIGAN SWEATER

Your dude will be happy blasting these Beats by Dre especially knowing that a portion of the (beats) RED Solo2 headphones sales go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS

You know you’ve been thinking about giving that good old guy of yours keys to your place. Make it personal by choosing one of hundreds of Various Projects Keytags or customize your own for just a few bucks more.
