CHICAGO – The countdown to Father’s Day is on.
The search for the perfect gift can be a challenge for many, so WGN News Now consulted the experts at Family Entourage for some gift-giving inspiration.
Co-founders Kelli Gillespie and Mei Ling Nazar shared a few ideas with WGN’s Larry Hawley that will hopefully make your shopping a little easier.
From golf and tech to shoes and shaving, Gillespie and Nazar had the following recommendations.
Golf Gear “Fore” Fathers: Coolibar has a new David Leadbetter collection that features golf gear with their UPF 50+ Fabric technology to protects your skin while out on the greens. The pieces are light and include sun protection that doesn’t wash out… plus, they can come in a variety of colors and styles and can let dad easily transition from a game of golf to a dinner.
Tech and Time with Dad: Gillespie and Nazar said you can’t go wrong with tech gifts. They suggested drone games, a UV sanitizing hub with a wireless charger, or a watch. They also recommended sunglasses, and say the aviator style is popular right now, in part because of the hit movie Top Gun: Maverick.
Step into Hawaiian Comfort: If dad can’t be at the ocean, you can help get him in the mindset said Gillespie and Nazar. They recommend the Hawaii based footwear company, OluKai. It has a variety of sandals and shoes, and some feature drop-in heel technology that allows dad to slide into his shoes.
Up Your Grooming Game: Grooming gifts are another great choice said the duo. They suggested Gentleman’s Nod, which produces a line of handcrafted grooming collections such as shave soaps, utility bars, beard oils and aftershave. Gillespie and Nazar also added each collection is named after a gentleman in history and smell great.
