Print a portrait of your kids on a dictionary page with Digital Art Tree. These 8.5 x 10.5-inch portraits are completely customizable — you can include custom names and words (and even request a specific word in the dictionary). It’s a fun and unique way to showcase the kids — and they’re the reason for Father’s Day in the first place, right?
This cherry, natural-edge cutting board from MauBow is a stunning statement piece for the kitchen. The cooking-inclined dad will love the natural look and sturdy feel, and the board is finished with food-safe mineral oil. It’s perfect for meats, veggies, fruits, cheeses and any other assortment of snacks.
For the shutterbug dad, take a look at this vintage camera messenger bag from Bagnabit Bags. It measures 12 inches wide and 16 inches tall — perfect for carrying a laptop or miscellaneous items (a photo print maybe? Flash drives? Rolls of film for the truly vintage photog?) Anything will look stylish in this masculine-chic tote.
These upcycled Hulk comic book coasters from 27elements are great for the super-hero-loving guy in your life. He’ll feel the “KROOM” every time he sets down his drink, and, with carefully selected pages from an original Hulk comic book (Volume 1. No. 10 August 1978), you can be sure these coasters are one-of-a-kind.
A hand-turned razor by The Pen Place will make dad feel pampered and awesome when he removes his daily scruff. The silver, orange-gold, bronze and copper look like molten metal, and you can easily find replacement blades at any grocery store (Gillette Mach 3).
These storage pods by Eggcrates make great industrial shelving and can be configured in any shape to fit any space. Give dad a set to help him organize books, record collections, tools, or other fatherly items. Eggcrates can also be purchased in sets of one, three or a dozen.
These steampunk cufflinks by Ghost Cat Jewelry work for special occasions and everyday wear — they’re great for parties or for making a creative statement at business meetings. The links are made from steel, pewter and brass watch parts dating from the 1880s to the 1960s.
