I love the idea of giving the gift of photos, videos, and heart-felt messages for Father’s Day (or any special day, really), but they’re not exactly the easiest things to give. Do you attach a video to an email? Send a sweet text? Print out a photo and mail it? I know, I’m hilarious. That’s why I was so thrilled to discover Imprint, first as our Facebook sponsor and then when my friends gifted one to me for my 40th birthday. After seeing, and yes weeping through, my own Imprint, I was convinced of how cool it was and...Read More

When I think Father’s Day gifts, I don’t necessarily think tacos. Not that there’s anything wrong with tacos. But I do think tech gifts, and while it’s hard to find affordable ones, I am so happy to have discovered our friends at This is Ground making a special Father’s Day edition set of their smart, handmade in the USA leather cord wranglers. Following in the footsteps of their Mother’s day edition cord taco, which was all metallic and beautiful, there’s now a set of 5 Father’s Day cord tacos featuring clever designs referring to baseball, mustaches, and biking. And of course,...Read More

We love our dads. We love our geeky dads. So of course we want to put together some of our favorite Father’s Day gifts for geeky dads that we’ve been seeing, loving, and bookmarking for ourselves. Great news: You don’t have to shop at ComicCon to find something perfect. Although two tickets would make a pretty sweet gift in itself. Some you can still order now in time, some you can find in local shops, some will just offer some needed inspiration. But hopefully none of them are the kinds of things that will just lie around, cluttering around his...Read More
Admittedly we spend a lot of time window shopping for our own tech gadgets, but with Father’s Day coming up, we thought we’d do the benevolent thing and look for a little gadget case love for the menfolk. Should the cool dads in your life not be into florals or chevrons, here are some cool iPhone cases that could make a nice little gift to go with a new iPhone–or just make the old one feel a little newer. I am so taken with the Coach leather colorblock iPhone cases that I want either of them for myself. But as I told you,...Read More
Dads may love gadgets, but there are some dads who prefer the kinds that help get them off the couch.

Not only does Basis feature super advanced technology, automatically tracking walking, biking, running, sleeping, and resting heart rate, but it also looks elegantly...Read More
I’ve been having the best time browsing for Father’s Day gifts on the site Hatch.co lately. (Also uh, self-proclaimed Mother’s Day gifts, in which every day is Mother’s Day but that’s another story.) But if we’re to think of the dads–oh, think of the dads!–then I’m really enjoying the mini-Fab shop, which includes a nice selection goodies including plenty of rugged, manly man personalized wooden iPhone cases. Lions and tigers and sugar skulls, oh my. Or hey, just provide your own and the artist can work with you, should the very cool sailor swallow not be dad’s thing. (Though...Read More
