The Elevated Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is fast approaching and we’re here to subtly discourage you from gifting him any of the usual suspects (you know, like socks, ties, or a mug). Though dads have long withheld a very specific stereotype of beer-drinking, football-watching, BBQ-loving creatures, this year we’re recognizing a new archetype of Dads.


He’s tech savvy, he wants the innovative version of all his household items and apparel, and he might even geek out on the technical aspect of products or read up about how it was made.


If this sounds like your dad, husband, father figure (or whoever you’re buying for this year), we’ve got a handful of products that will give your man the upgrade he’s looking for.


Happy Shopping and Happy Father’s Day – don’t forget to laugh just a little bit harder at his dad jokes.
