Unique Father's Day gifts: Trust us, he'll thank you...
If your father already moisturizes and counts his argyle socks by the dozen, this list isn't for him. But everyone else should read on. A unique Father's Day gift doesn't have to involve stressing over what Dad wants. Just figure out what his wardrobe needs.
The Murse (a man-purse): The briefcase is hopelessly quaint. But too many men still are stuffing their pockets instead of a carry-all bag. Messenger-styles are a good starter bag for dads who need convincing. Load it up with his newspaper, a snack and water bottle to prove its worth.
Checked shirt, plaid tie: If your father still goes to work in a solid-color, wrinkle-free with a matching tie, it's time to introduce him to something called flair. GQ has found a classic pairing that costs less than $25 per piece. Or any department store clerk can help you make a smart combo.
Time piece: A man's watch doesn't have to be a once-in-a-lifetime investment. Encourage Dad to update his standard watch with a peppy, preppy watchband from Brooks Brothers that will set you back just $14.50.
Skivvies: If Mom can't remember the last time your father bought new boxers or briefs, go wild and grab him a pair. TMI? Surely, you can stomach the gift of snappy swimming trunks, like the $14.99 color block swim short from Target.
