Today, you're more likely to find a foreign-made good on the market than a product made in America. Below are five Father's Day gift ideas, perfect for the dad who appreciates handmade, American gifts and classic style with a hint of practicality.
1) Dog and Hunter Bow Tie, R. Hanauer, $60.00 (30% off with code FATHERSDAY)
R. Hanauer Bow Ties are handmade in Fort Mill, South Carolina. This father and son-run business has been making bow ties since 1985. Because the fabric is cut on a bias, giving way for more stretch, they happen to be the best tying bow ties on the market. Your dad will automatically pick you as the favorite. (Ok, ok, fine, it's us....but we had to give ourselves a little nod!)
2) Key Ring No. 3, Colonel Littleton, $34.00 (+ $8.00 for personalization)
Colonel Littleton leather goods are handmade in Lynnville, Tennessee, population 327. You heard that right...327. All leather goods are crafted with the highest quality and care and are meant to last a lifetime, just like a father's love. Personalize it with your initials or his to make it even more memorable.
3) Ascent Pearl Watch, Martenero, $595.00
Martenero is a watch company focused on timeless time-pieces (ironic, but important). The New York based business believes "time is precious and not to be misspent." Make this investment for a dad who appreciates quality time with you.
4) Eastport Penny Loafer, Rancourt & Co., $295.00
Another father and son-run business, all Rancourt & Co. shoes are handmade and hand-sewn in Lewistown, Maine. These loafers are made with snuffed side leather that is burnished to give the leather character and depth of color. Dad doesn't fancy socks? He doesn't have to. These shoes are unlined for better break-in and a more comfortable fit.
MAKR founder Jason Gregory creates everything from furniture to leather goods. Quality, refinement and simplicity are the goals for each of the products which are all made within 100 miles from the Winter Park, Florida studio. Whether dad draws or takes tedious notes, this sketchbook is for a creator.
