5 Father’s Day gift ideas that are so New York

June 16, 2017

Have you thought of what you’re getting your dad for Father’s Day? If not, you’re in good company. New Yorkers’ fast-paced lives don’t leave much time for gift-giving. Luckily, there’s the internet — and all these NYC-based e-commerce companies that offer great gifts for even the most technophobic ol’ man.

On-demand shaving gear

There’s no gift more fitting for the man who taught you how to shave than grooming products. A kit from NYC-based Harry’s Grooming is the perfect way to help your dad look like those clean-shaven guys in the Financial District. Once you purchase a shaving plan, he can log in and customize his profile so he gets the products he wants, exactly when he needs them.


Outdoor coffee making kit

Biolite, an NYC company that makes outdoor energy products, sells a coffee making kit for campers. And in true Manhattan nature, the coffee is top notch. The company partnered with Brooklyn Roasting Company to feature Fair Trade Certified Peruvian beans that have notes of caramel, butter crust and chocolate. Put simply: this is not your father’s coffee maker — though it could be.


Theater tickets 

For the man who appreciates a good Broadway show from time to time, theater tickets from TodayTix are the perfect gift. The company offers last-minute tickets at the best prices for shows in a number of cities all over the U.S. And don’t let the name confuse you — TodayTix sells tickets up to 30 days in advance.


Effortlessly chic button downs

He may have always insisted you tuck in your shirt, but oh, how the tables have turned. Untuckit is an NYC-based company that makes exactly what you think: shirts designed to be worn untucked. They fall halfway between the belt and the bottom of the zipper and feature a curved, not square, hemline. He’ll really nail the whole “effortlessly chic” look that’s all over New York.


Perfectly tailored clothing 

Your dad may not be onboard with the effortlessly chic fashion of New York, and that’s OK. For the man with a more traditional sense of style, there’s Bonobos. The NYC-based company offers perfectly tailored clothing that features curved waistbands and different types of “fit” options. Your dad will get style advice and perfectly tailored clothing delivered straight to his door. It doesn’t get more New York than that.
