If you're still looking for a last-minute Father's Day gift to pick up or ship out, take a look at my favorite picks:
Mercedes-Benz just launched their first fragrance for men - a woody, floral and fresh fragrance. The head note has a fresh burst of citrus and bergamot, with violet leaf absolute, bourbon pepper, nutmeg and galbanum at the heart of the fragrance. The woody base notes mix essences of cedar, vetiver and patchouli, giving the fragrance it's contrasts, nobility and masculinity. This luxurious fragrance is available as a 2.5 oz ($65) or 4.0 oz ($80) eau de toilette spray at lordandtaylor.com.
These eco-friendly, bifold Natty Professor wallets ($42) from jetsam.com are made from reconstructed vintage grey herringbone tweed suit coats. The wallets are inspired by the time-honored style of iconic male figures.
Sipping Stones is the perfect gift for whiskey lovers, chilling drinks without diluting the flavor for that true on the rocks taste. Each set comes with nine finely crafted grey cubes made from one hundred percent soapstone, a safe alternative to ice. The stones are non-porous, odorless and tasteless. They are meant to be stored in the freezer until you're ready to chill your beverage.
This is a must-have gift for anyone that loves to grill. The stainless steel Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers can be bent into shape, allowing them to fit around other food or around the edge of a round grill. The tip acts as a handle and remains cool when you leave it off the grill. You can also marinate on the skewer in a bowl or bag. Fire Wire Flexible Grilling Skewers are available at major retailers such as bedbathandbeyond.com, as a 2-pack ($9.99) and at
williams-sonoma.com as a 4-pack ($15.99).
