Father’s Day Gift Guide

fathers day gift guide

Looking for the perfect gift for dad (that’s not a golf shirt or another tie?)  From the gourmand to the jetsetter, the dapper-dude to the guy who just likes his booze, we’ve got just the thing.  Homefest’s men’s department is filled with thoughtful and unexpected gifts for every man this Father’s Day.

Will Parent for Food

Whether he likes to cook or is just really good at eating, our gourmet department is stocked with cookbooks for the hardcore carnivore, grill gifts, and manly munchies.  A butcher’s board or pizza peel and a cookbook will keep him cooking all summer long.  Our Sriracha Rim Salt is perfect for firing-up his bloody mary or margarita and doubles as a great rub for grilling.  Plus with great bar provisions like gourmet small-batch bitters and salty dill pickle peanuts, he’ll have no reason to leave the Lazy Boy when the game is on.

My Flight’s on Time, I’ll be Home for Dinner

Business trips, a long weekend, or the gym — send dad packing in style.  Our travel bags, backpacks, and Dopp kits are sleek in design, versatile, and lightweight.  Another travel must-have, our portable wine tote, complete with space for two bottles, a cheese board, stemless wine glasses, and a corkscrew… it may not be transcontinental but one must still be prepared when traveling to an outdoor concert or the ball game.

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beard-iful

If your dad is a dapper dude, give him the gift of great grooming.  From beard to bod, our quality grooming products from Jack Black and Duke Cannon are perfect for the no-nonsense man — nothing complicated, nothing cosmetic, just superior skin care.

Let Me Grab a Drink First

Parenting is hard work and most Dads are still recovering well into retirement.  Raise a glass to Dad with a handcrafted decanter, mouth-blown glass beer tankards, or double-walled pilsner glasses that serve-up as much style as function (each designed to ensure the optimal temperature of Dad’s brew.)  Don’t forget the reinforcements, Homefest offers handsome leather bar-tool wrap is perfect for the cocktail connoisseur and a bottle of dirty martini juice for the cleanest dirty martini he’ll ever drink.

Fast Fashion for the Table

At Homefest, we’re often asked about the latest trends in dinnerware and entertaining. Over the years, we’ve seen a departure from our mothers’ china cabinet with full service for 12 in favor of a bit more personality, durability, and function. Nowadays we want our dinnerware to reflect our personal aesthetic, fit with our busy lifestyle, and we want to know where our products are sourced and about the talented artisans who create them. We are yearning for handcrafted dinnerware that celebrates the authentic and imperfect charm of each unique piece. We want dishes that look great on a formal holiday table yet are equally accessible for a take-out dinner around the kitchen island. With this in mind, we’ve taken a diversified buying approach.

Now, what to register for? There is nothing wrong with white plates, matching serveware, and crisp linens…heck, we adore the classics, they’re timeless for a reason. But we also love bold colors, rich patterns, and authentic and imperfect hand-made pieces. With this in mind, we invite you to register with Homefest. We have your essentials covered but we also have hand-painted plates, festive barware, and one-of-a kind serving pieces…because your life together should never be boring.
