It’s almost Father’s Day, which means it’s time to say a heartfelt “thank you” to the man who taught you how to ride a bike, helped you with your homework, and bailed you out of a scrape or two. From outdoorsy to preppy, book worms to coffee connoisseurs, here on Nantucket we’ve got plenty of gift options for every type of dad!
Give dad a trip into the wild with the Yeti Hopper 30. Portable, indestructible, and 100% leak-proof, this Yeti is sure to keep any dad happy, whether it’s out on the beach or out on the boat. Looking for something smaller? Yeti’s 30 oz. Rambler and Colster will keep drinks chilled all day. Pair these with a new swimsuit and sandals and you’re set for a perfect Father’s Day of fun in the sun!
Is your dad a Nantucket-lover? Give him the gift of the island to wear around and show some pride. This summer-weight cotton is perfect for dressing up and wearing out on the town or throwing on to cover up at the beach. And for those summer visitors taking the sad trip home, dad will always have a little Nantucket right there in his pocket.
If there is one thing better than enjoying a nice bottle of wine at home, it’s enjoying a nice bottle of wine on the go. With this nifty utilitarian bag, dad can carry his vino and head out to the beach for a sunset picnic. What’s more, this carryall also includes placemats, making it the perfect travel companion for a sophisticated night dining al fresco.
Dads need to accessorize too, and there’s no better accessory than one that is truly Nantucket. For the most unique island-themed hats, belts, keychains and more, look no further than Murray’s Toggery and their Smathers & Branson collection. Have fond memories of riding shotgun out to Great Point in dad’s Jeep? Grab one of their needlepoint belts and he’ll be reminded of that quality moment every every time he puts it on.
Being a great dad can be exhausting. That’s why every father deserves a gift card to downtown’s Handlebar Café. With a delicious assortment of coffees, teas and healthy snacks, this Nantucket favorite is a “must try.” And whether dad wants to run in for a quick pick-me-up or enjoy a freshly brewed cup outside in the café’s Secret Garden, this is gift we know any dad would love a latte.
Every island dad needs a great beach read. This summer, that will be the latest title from Nat Philbrick, Valiant Ambition. The New York Times best-selling author and island resident never fails to produce a page-turner, and this tale of George Washington and Benedict Arnold will be no different. A fascinating gift for fathers everywhere!
Dad can go from home, to town, to work and straight to the beach in these “All Day” shorts from Faherty. Styled like classic khaki shorts but built like board shorts, they’re appropriate for any and all daily activities (including a dip at Cisco beach!) Work and play all in one… what more could dad ask for?
