Father's Day Gift Guide

Whether your father prefers tools or wine and cheese, he deserves some recognition. While you clearly know him best, we've put together a few ideas for the dad in your life for Father's Day.

For once, give your father something he might actually use. Although razors and tools may seem mundane and expected Wahl's Ion Trimmer and Labour & Wait's Small Screwdriver Set keep it compact and classy. Both are versatile and provide multiple uses.

If you dad commutes often (and you've got an extra $40k) you will want to keep him safe and stylish in a 2009 Audi A5. We were lucky enough to test out the vehicle some time ago and were expectedly pleased. Don't be fooled by its aggressive shape—a multitude of amenities, including a superior sound system by Bang & Olufsen, make this ride more luxury than sport. That is, until you step on the gas. If he's a man that spends more time in the air then BuiltNY's Travel Cargo Pack will keep his wires and electronics organized on the fly.

If he enjoys spending time in the kitchen, Mario Batali's Panini Grill and Wusthof's Knife Sharpener are two gadgets he shouldn't be without. Or just let him have the day off from cooking with a gift basket of exceptional cheese from Artisanal Cheese.

Davek's wind tunnel-tested umbrella will keep him dry on the back nine. However, if he prefers to watch it on TV, NuVision's new Lucidium FX5 Series provides the clarity and resolution to see every slope and twig on the course.

All of these products and more gift ideas can be found in the Cool Hunting Gift Guide.
