Father’s Day is almost upon us which means it’s time to start thinking about a gift for Dandy father figure in your life. I’ve compiled a collection of fine gifts, many locally available , to make things easy on you. So get shopping and show dad how much he really means to you.

Three Men in a Boat – Most dads don’t have time to sit around and read, but this classic gentleman’s novel by Jerome K. Jerome is a quick read full of travel, style and hilarious whit.

Wrafterbuilt Mobi-Stand – Made of reclaimed wood right here in Buffalo, this simple, rustic looking tool is perfect for propping up your smartphone for easy reading at a desk or table.

Bureau Liquid Swordz Silk Knit Tie – Not only does Bureua have a handsome collection of silk knit ties in a variety of colors, the amazing names for these ties make them even cooler. A favorite of mine and a perfect color for Summer is the Liquid Swordz.

O’Connell’s Needlepoint Buffalo Belt – He wears the pants in the family, so be sure his pants stay up with this handsome Smather’s & Branson Needlepoint Belt custom designed by O’Connell’s.

Ray-Ban Clubmaster – Sure your dad has classic style, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still look hip. Update his look with these reflective green Ray-Bans for the perfect mix of JFK and Kanye.

Shinola Runwell Chrono – Get him a watch he will hopefully hand-down to you one day with this big daddy of a timepiece.

Bass Weejuns – Give his barking dogs a rest in these timeless penny loafers.

Angel’s Envy Whiskey – Sure you can drive him to drink every now and again, but this exceptional whiskey is one that he just might want to share with you because it’s just that good.
