Last Minute Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's day is this weekend and if you are like me and always forget about these dates we selected some really nice gift suggestions that can be delivered to you before Sunday. It ranges from drones, laptops and other electronics to boots and wallets. These are some simple suggestions but the most important thing is to not forget to call your old man and say how much you love him and appreciate everything he's done for you. As a new father now I have a completely new perspective on how difficult it is to raise a child and our parents, or whoever raised us, really need a big thank you. The gift is optional, but the talk is mandatory :) Last Minute Father's Day Gift Guide DJI Mavic Pro Samsung Chromebook Plus Microsoft Surface Pro Pinty 48V 1000W 26’’ Electronic Bike Conversion Kit Hub Motor (Front Wheel) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 V 20.1 MP Digital Still Camera w/ 3" OLED 400467 Spyderco Manbug black FRN PlainEdge B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H4 Wireless Headphones, Charcoal Gray Blundstone Men's 587 Round Toe Chelsea Boot   Jacob Bromwell Great American Flask MEKU Men's Handmade Slim Leather Wallet Credit Card Holder Slim Wallet

Made with natural, organic and certified organic ingredients, Meant delivers noticeable results in simple fashion. In Lindsay's own words, "Meant is mindfully made, minimalist-designed and massively rewarding."   An indulgent gift is both beautiful and useful. Enter one of my favorite, minimalistic brands, Cuyana. Here's a piece for mom that reflects her personality and available in colors that transition from season to season. A personal favorite footwear brand that happens to be SF-based, meet Freda Salvador. The Chelsea Boot is comprised of 100% calf leather handmade in Spain and is truly the only boot mom will ever need in her closet, ever. period.  For the mom out there that appreciates simple handcrafted, ceramic goods made right here in California, look no further than the adored Heath Ceramics, founded in 1948. Owned by two families, both driven by design, and sharing a commitment to handcrafted work and a determination to question the status quo Heath Ceramics has garnered a somewhat cult following. For something sweet and simple, we love their seasonal bud vase set for that special mom.   One of our favorite inventions of this decade has to be Alexa. She's virtually a part of the family and we don't know what life was like before her. Now, enter Echo Look, everything you love about Alexa, and now she can help Mom look her best even when she's had less than 2 hours of sleep.

We love this tote for it's classic, french nature and it's versatility in doubling as a diaper bag/grocery getter. Perfect for any mom looking to minimize her baggage, literally.  For the mom that loves to entertain, enter these amazingly soft lightweight pure linen napkin to add some minimal color and texture to your mealtimes. Prewashed during production process to make it super nice to touch. Also in rosa, white, oatmeal and even more colors. To complete her tablescape, runners and tablecloths available too. We all know moms require rocket-fueled coffee to get them through the day and if you're like me, french-press is the only way. We love this sleek take on a french press plunger pot. It's even stylish enough to leave out on the counter at all times which we adore.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, you know the rest.
