Father's Day Gift Guide for the Modern Dad

Father's Day Gift Guide for the Modern Dad

Written by Maria Lechner, Founder of Citi Collective

This Father's Day I picture Todd doing some of his favorite things (including some that he doesn't get to do all that often) - lounging on the couch, grilling out, and shopping for new gadgets.  

He somehow has a way of finding the perfect Father's Day gifts before I get the chance to even start looking. On his gift list, there is always at least one "Dad gadget", men's grooming product, and a unique gift idea.  So this year I asked Todd to help us come up with a gift guide that included unique Father's Day gift ideas for the Dads who have everything.  



 1. Grill Masters Club 

If the dad in your life is a grilling fanatic then this is the perfect gift. Grill Masters Club delivers the ultimate BBQ experience through its carefully curated monthly subscription box and membership. What we love about it is that the products are very high quality and most are new brands doing innovative things in the grilling space. 

 2. Dads Play Mat T-Shirt

This fun, interactive shirt will make Dad the life of the party...at least with the kids. It has a play mat printed on the back allowing Dads to lie on their stomach while the little ones drive, chug and zoom all over their back.  Resting while playing? That's a Dad win!

3. Ridge Wallet

I know a wallet is a pretty traditional Father's Day gift but this one puts a tech-spin on the traditional wallet. It can hold a lot of cards without becoming bulky and the different colors and patterns are really cool.

4. eto Wine Decanter

Todd thinks this gift isn't just for Dad and I have to agree with him. This wine decanter serves multiple purposes in a beautiful, sleek design. It helps separate sediment from the liquid, is a beautiful way to serve the wine and then has a patented preservation system which haults the oxidation process when you want to store any remaining wine.

5. Citi Collective Citi Navigator Backpack

This is Todd's favorite backpack for work and travel. Our boys are out of the stage where we need a diaper bag but Todd still uses his Citi Navigator for work and travel because of the multiple pockets, comfortable straps and large capacity. 

6. Bevel Shave Starter Kit

For Dads who want to up their self-care game or take grooming more seriously, this Bevel Shave Starter kit is a great way to take that first step. It's an end to end shaving system that uses premium ingredients and is designed to help prevent and reduce razor bumps.

7. Beneath Your Mask 

Speaking of self-care, this serum is a blend of super-charged plant based ingredients that balance moisture and help restore elasticity to the skin and hair while protecting them from stressors. The best part is that it can be used on both skin and hair!

8. Bokksu Box

This unique Father's Day gift allows you to discover Japan through snacks. Bokksu delivers to your door the experience of tasting authentic Japanese snacks, candies, and teas sourced directly from centuries-old small family businesses.

9. Meat Thermometer - MEATER Block

This isn't any old meat thermometer. It includes 4 temperature probes so Dad can check the temperature of the meat he is grilling while laying on the couch. It even has dual temperature sensors to monitor internal meat temperature up to 212°F and ambient / external temperature up to 527°F simultaneously.

10. The Wanderchain by the Wonder Club

 The Wanderchain is the perfect gift for Dads who like to travel.  They offer tokens (a more masculine play on "bracelet charms") that you add to your Wanderchain.  These tokens include names of countries, sports stadiums, national parks and more. 

11. Bodega Cooler 

Todd has a thing for coolers and tech gadgets so when he found a gift that combines both, he was pretty excited. The Bodega Cooler features a battery that keeps your food cool for 10 hours. When the portable battery runs out, you can recharge it using your DC 12v/24v car charger port.  You can also control and check on the temperature via their app. 

From the Citi Collective family to yours, we wish the dad in your life a Happy Father's Day!
