Lego Boost 

If you want to give your kid a surefire skill she'll need to excel in any career she might pursue in 15-20 years, teach her how to code. "But my daughter's only 7," you'll say.  "Shouldn't I just buy her a doll or something?" NOPE.  Trust—when America becomes the United States of Facebook, you'll be really glad you invested in this Lego Boost Set ($160, LEGO), which features over 800 pieces that your kid can use to build whatever she can think up, and a companion app that teaches basic coding that will allow her to bring her creations to life, even making them move and talk. Net/net: if the robots are going to take over, you'll be glad to have a kid that knows how to build an control them, right?  Now THAT'S a smart investment.

Malvaux Number 1 Knife 


Back in the day, you used to have outdoorsy guys and indoorsy guys.  The two were ardently different. One guy would spend his weekends fishin' and hikin' and actively removing the "g's" off of words, while the other guy would go to nice restaurants and bars, and maybe an art museum, where he pretended to understand oil paintings for an afternoon while wearing a collared shirt.

But now—thanks to hipsters, mostly—those two types of guys have merged, which is why you'll see dudes hiking in $250 flannel shirts or buying $600 axes (which they will never actually use, by the way). Yes, the "cabin porn" industry is on the rise, and these dudes are soaking it right up.

That's why, in addition to the expensive flannels and axes, we have this—admittedly beautiful—Malvaux Number 1 Knife, which boasts a $250 price tag (you read that right).  This ain't your grandfather's Swiss Army Knife, by any stretch, but the guy you're buying it for is nothing like this grandfather anyway.

Mission Critical Baby Carrier

A hilarious thing happens when certain uber-macho, alpha males have babies—they become super fucking softies, especially if said babies happen to be girls.  They start carting them around, looking after their every whim, and it's incredibly adorable.  But when these guys morph into Mr. Mom, they tend to get grief from their other bro buddies (typically the ones who are single or childless) that they've gone soft.  This Mission Critical Baby Carrier ($179) will help him keep his cred while still carting around his kid, which is literally all he's interested in now.  Sorry, boys.

Joy Con Classic 

We're all nostalgic for the simple days of our childhoods, when we could sit on the floor of our living rooms and spend entire days playing Super Mario Bros. 3 on our original Nintendo system.  Now that we're all adults, though, we're both not able and not willing to indulge in that. Why?  Because adult gamers are looked down as childish.  And true, there's not a lot that sounds appealing about a 37-year-old man who devotes weekend hours to his X-Box, but hold up.  Do you play Candy Crush on your phone on the subway?  Gurl, you a gamer too. Let's all reserve the judgement about how we should be spending our free time as adults and acknowledge that zoning out is a key component of developing the ability to resist the urge to strangle everyone you see at work, on your commute, in the grocery store, etc.  The specific type of zoning out you get while playing mindless video games is especially sweet.  Let's all buy the Colorware Joy Con Classic ($199)—which pairs with Nintendo Switch—and play classic games on a classic controller. The clicking even sounds the same. Relaxxxxxxxxxxing.

Vollebak Nano Meter Hi-Viz Shirt 

Your dad is on a fitness kick for some reason (ie: he's trying to outrun his own inevitable mortality), and while you're happy that he's trying to get healthy after years of thinking broccoli smothered in cheese sauce counted as a serving of vegetables, you're concerned about the old guy taking a tumble or stroking out in front of the cul de sac in your childhood neighborhood.  

Give yourself peace of mind while he's insisting on going on early morning jogs or late night bike rides by gifting him this Vollebak Nano Meter Hi-Viz Shirt ($195) for Father's Day, which is not only comfortable and sweat-wicking, but it's equipped with high-tech motion capture markers that light up when hit by any passing light source (a speeding vehicle, anyone?).  You'll be happy, he'll be happy, and most importantly, your MOM will be happy.
