Father's Day Inspiration

Father's Day is about 3 weeks away (June 16th!) and it's never to early to start thinking about what to get Dad. 
 
Here are my picks from this year's crop of gift ideas: 

Steel Grill Outdoor 5-piece Cook Set, Williams-Sonoma ($119.96)
These are perfect for all of his summer grilling needs out on the BBQ!
Cast Iron Spice Grinder, West Elm Market ($59)
Love this. Manly, uber useful ...and chic! 
Lodge Logic Skillets, Sur La Table ($10.95-$59.95)
My favorite thing to cook indoors with- Dad will love them too!

Stag Horn Corkscrew, Jack Spade ($110 $49)
This handsome tool is on sale and chicer than ever. Win-win. 

Triangle Dinner Bell, Crate & Barrel ($69.95 $49.95)
Equal parts sculptural wall decor and time-honored mealtime alert



Jose Regueiro Black Walnut Cutting Board, Heath Ceramics ($195)
A gorgeous and rock-solid foundation for cutting all things - fab for presentation too.

9-Tin Pepper Sampler, Dean and Deluca ($65)
White, Green, Tellicherry, Pink. Szechuan, Aleppo, Hot Red Chili Flakes, Cayenne, & Half-Cracked Black

Marlowe Lunch Bag, Anthropologie ($44)

Buffalo Check Napkins, Set of 4, Pendleton Woolen Mills, ($28)
Perfect for Summer BBQ's and Cookouts hosted by Dad!
"This is What Awesome Looks Like" Mug, Etsy ($15)
I mean..it's an obvious choice for Dad, right?


J. Dory Apron, Hedley & Bennett ($85)
Limited Edition, made from Japanese Selvage Denim. So necessary.



Raaka Bourbon Cask-Aged Chocolate Bar, ABC Home ($10)
Cocoa Beans are Cask-aged in Bourbon Barrels; All Organic and Fair-Trade.


Wooden Spreaders, Canvas Home ($6 each)
Made from repurposed North American maple, ash, poplar, or elm. Hand-carved. 

Recycled Glass Oil Dispenser, Terrain ($30)
Perfect for Dad's favorite cooking or finishing oil. 



Poultry Destroyer Knife, Blood Root Blades, ($225)
All custom made. Reclaimed saw blade. Oak Burl Handle with Ebony bolster. 
"incredibly efficient for poultry breakdown and all meat trimming"



I wish I could show you what I got for my dad but that would totally kill the surprise as he is pretty much the #1 subscriber to my blog posts 

*happy tears*

He has literally responded via email to every post I have ever written. 

The only person to do so. 

Sometimes it's short and sweet - maybe only a word or two - but still, he never misses one.  

Best. Dad. Ever.
