Holiday Gift Guide: Father’s Day Ideas From The Accessories Council

Well, it appears this Sunday is Father’s Day.  I encourage you not to get dear old Dad or the father figure in your life another tie or a barbecue grill set. Oh, no – let’s talk about some gifts with serious style for a man who might or might be consider stylish but who deserves the best nonetheless.

I recently attended an event with the Accessories Council, where they presented their top picks for Father’s Day. Here are my picks from their fabulous selection of items:


Everyone needs good sunglasses and these action star-esque Lacoste Men’s LA 12436 Sunglasses prove the eyes have it. Retro cool enough for even the most jaded sunglasses aficionado, they’re perfect for the man in your life at all ages.

Personally, I like any accessory you can borrow from your man (not necessarily always the other way around, though.) Please meet my new favorite obsession, Phosphor Watches, digital watches that are functional and impossibly cool. This Curved E-Ink Watch looks amazing on everyone and for those of us who like a little more dash, check out this gorgeous Appear Black Crystal Watch, which has revolving Swarovski crystals that reveal the time.

As someone who appreciates a little Rat Pack style now and then (or a LOT, actually,) I love when men sport classic stylish accessories and behavior of a kinder, gentler time. For those of you who have a cigar or pipe smoker as the man in your Father’s Day buying future, he’ll LOVE smoking accessories from Colibri.

If your dad has jammed enough stuff in his wallet and/or worn his key fob to death, it might be time for a new one. Give him  stylish upgrade with this amazing pebbled wallet and key fob set from Calvin Klein.

Every girl’s crazy about a sharply dressed man and nothing adds a little James Bond flair to his look than tasteful cufflinks that add a dash of panache, like these Swarovski Fasten Cuff Links. If you have a French or barrel cuff dress shirt yourself (and if you don’t, you should) these would also look smoking hot on you.

Got a guy that likes to get the most out of his wardrobe items? Give dear Dad the ultimate in versatility: a Lacoste Men’s Reversible Leather Belt With Engraved Logo Buckle. Does he need a black belt or a brown one? Either way, this accessory has you covered.

Honestly, it doesn’t matter what you give dear old Dad but sometimes stepping up your present giving game is warranted. Try any of these amazing gift ideas from the Accessories Council and watch the man in your life have a whole new respect for Father’s Day.
