AS A MOM, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES FOR US TO FIND PARENTING TIPS, RECIPES, ACTIVITIES AND COMRADES FOR US AND OUR LITTLE ONES TO ENJOY. BUT WHAT’S A DAD TO DO?
Enter Fatherly, a new site aimed at helping dads be the best they can be while keeping their cool (aka not turning into a cargo short-wearing-person). With Father’s Day approaching and the terrifying realization that we’ve already given our significant others and dads every type of gadget, wallet or bottle of whiskey out there, we turned to the pros at Fatherly for help. For gift inspiration that goes beyond the latest sports biography, check out what the guys recommend.
01/ Tosan’s Pop and Tot Sweatshirts– You know what’s more hilarious than an Animal House-inspired sweatshirt that says “Pop” instead of “College”? A matching one for your kid.
02/ Phiaton Chord MS 530 Noise-Cancelling Headphones– Ideal for the home office where you can recreate the kid-free quiet of the actual office. Also ideal if you just want a nice set of wireless cans so you don’t send your laptop flying when you get off the couch.
03/ PowerUp 3.0– Back in the day, you were lucky if your paper airplane reached the front of the classroom. Now, they’re attached to microchip-powered, carbon fiber propellers and rudders.
04/ Tenstile– Every guy wants a treehouse for his kids, most guys don’t quite have the skills to build one. Tentsile tents let you to turn any 3 anchor points (AKA trees) into an instant treehouse, which means your backyard and every family camping trip just got a whole lot cooler.
05/ Sleepy Jones PJs– If your initial reaction to these is something like, “Hey, it’s not Grandfather’s Day!” you might want to hold off on actually saying that until you put them on and realize they’re the most comfortable things you’ve ever worn.
06/ Osprey Poco Premium Kid Carrier– If he’s considering going for a hike and bringing the kiddo, the Osprey Premium is the way to go and comes with a few choice extras, like a detachable daypack and a diaper changing pad. It’s rated for kids up to 48 pounds, so you can carry them long after you hoped they’d be walking the whole way on their own.
