Full Disclosure – I have been compensated for this post, however the thoughts and opinions are my own.
When it comes to Father’s Day, I have a problem. Not so much with the way that it is celebrated but with giving gift ideas to my family.
While there are many things that I would love to get, I find it increasingly difficult to keep a list of those ideas in one place that will be easy for my family to access when it comes time to find that perfect gift.
I’m sure that I’m not the only dad who is like this. I’d venture a guess that many of us are when it comes down to it. We all feel like we are just doing the job of being a dad and don’t need the recognition that comes with Father’s Day.
That being said, this gift list is for those dads out there who find it difficult to give those gift ideas to their family as I do. It consists of everything from a facial skin regimen, to meat, to a manly scented candle, to a wallet that makes it easier to keep everything together.
First, come something a lot of dads don’t think about except when we shave… our facial skin. I’d venture to guess that many of us don’t put much thought into it. Reason being that many of us don’t know what exactly to do to take care of it. Geologie has solved that problem. There is no longer guessing with products we need. Geologie has an online quiz that you can take and they tell you which of their regimens will work for the type of skin that you have.
For me, I am on Regimine #28 that is designed to reduce the puffiness under my eyes as well as reducing the oiliness of my skin and the acne that I’m prone to have at times.
Rawlings Leather Goods
For me, I find it difficult sometimes to keep everything that I need to take with me on any given outing together. Sure the cargo shorts are nice because I can throw my wallet, keys, and phone into a separate pocket, but there is a high chance that I’ll forget one or two of those items… probably not my keys if I’m driving anywhere. But the Rawlings Leather Goods universal magnetic phone case solves that for me. I’m able to store all of my cards in the case as well as my phone. There is a magnet that you put into your phone case that will stick to the inside of the case. This is perfect for guys like me who want to reduce the number of things that I have to carry with me.
Standing out at the grill, is probably one of my favorite pastimes as a dad, a husband, and a guy. And as the person in our family who is the primary grocery shopper, I am constantly looking for the best products to serve our family for dinner. It also means that I tend to lean towards anything on the grill. Crowd Cow is on a mission to create an alternative to the current meat commodity system. They only work with farms that they can personally believe in so that you know how your meat was raised and can feel confident in the meat that you are serving you family and friends.
Let’s be honest, there aren’t many places you can get Wagyu beef either and with Crowd Cow they will deliver it right to your door.

Screwball Peanut Butter Whiskey
As I’m winding down for the evening, I tend to pour myself a glass of whiskey. I was introduced to Screwball Peanut Butter Whiskey 2 years ago from another dad, and it has become a staple in my bar. Screwball is sweet, it’s salty, it’s… peanut butter. It has an award-winning flavor that has impressed many of my family and friends when I serve it to them.
Now, there is one thing I haven’t done yet with Screwball yet, and that is to mix it into cocktails. I’ve seen some bartenders do it and the drinks look and sound delicious but I personally haven’t done it. However, seeing other people serve it in cocktails just speaks to the versatility that Screwball Peanut Butter Whiskey has.
Candle From Wax Buffalo
Working from home has made me a bit more concious about the space around me. I think alot about my desk and what can make it feel more comfortable to work in. And one of the great things, unlike working in an office, I can create the scents that will help me work and be more creative. No more colleagues that pop popcorn in the microwave making the entire office smell like popcorn. The notes of tobacco, warm vanilla, coriander, tonka, honey blossom, and clove give this candle the manly scent that many men will want to burn for hours on end.
