10 Ways to Spoil Your Dad on Father’s Day

This Father’s Day (June 16), show dad how much you care with a fantastic gift.

Dad taught you how to ride a bike. He helped you decipher boys, showed you how to drive a car, moved you countless times…Well; dad is always there for you, right? So this Father’s Day, show him how much you appreciate what he does and who he is with a gift that he’ll use all year long.

Check out our Father’s Day gift guide and get inspired.

1. Merona Men’s Messenger Bag in Brown ($24.99, target.com). Whether dad’s lugging a little one’s toys, work stuff or books, he’ll love using this sleek canvas bag that’ll carry everything he needs.

2. The Zimm ($75, eyebobs.com).  Help dad stop squinting when he’s cooking, reading or trying to figure out the remote! Give him a pair of these on-trend reading glasses. They were designed in partnership with Chef and TV host (Bizarre Foods) Andrew Zimmern.

3. Sean Customizable sneaker ($100, bornshoes.com).Dad’s an original and so is Børn’s Sean sneaker. You can mix and match four neutral uppers with five colorful outsoles, creating two-tone sneakers made of soft suede.

4. Versace Eros EDT, 1.7 oz, ($62, macys.com). Dad will love this brand new scent from Versace. It’s fresh, woody and spicy with a hint of leather. It’s distinctive, masculine and warm….just like dad.

5. Vintage Style Camera stainless steel flask, 6 oz ($26, unique-vintage.com). When Auntie Ida starts droning on a family parties, Dad can discretely sip from this retro flask to keep up his, ahem, flagging spirits.

Gorgeous on a Dime: How to Look Like A Lady on Father’s Day

My awesome dad has his daily beauty routine down pat, and I love him enough to know that getting him any additional man themed spa products for Father’s day is not something he would appreciate (he told me he has better taste than I do, and I agree). With the holiday just around the corner I decided that instead of creating a list of products you can buy for your dad, it would be helpful to create a list of products that your dad will be happy you purchased for yourself. These affordable fixes will transform you from the little monster you were last night and back into daddy’s little girl. Unless you’re Lady Gaga, where being a little monster walk of shame is her daily mission.

Miss Opps carries two products I know my dad is grateful I own.

There is nothing I find more disturbing than seeing a girl out with her family in a crazy revealing top or dress.  I mean seriously, having your dad tell you to cover up at any age just sucks. Enter: the Boob Tube.  This low cost miracle is simply an unlined tiny tube top with elastic at the top and bottom to keep it in place.  It goes right over your bra and voila you can wear your favorite outfit without flashing your goods.  The boob tube comes in a variety of colors and styles so there is no excuse not to own one (cough cough maxi dress wearers of America cough cough). Boob Tube $19-$20:

Now I am personally not a fan of extremely low rise jeans, but I suppose I understand the desire to show a little skin.  If your jeans are so low that you are showing more whale tail than Sea World, I implore you to purchase JAKs for your Father’s Day brunch. JAKs is a shirt extender that is designed to look like a lace camisole.  It is worn over the top of your jeans and under your shirt creating a seamless flow to your outfit. This fashion saver not only covers up your crack, but will smooth out a muffin top as well.  I often have to control myself from encouraging women on the street to invest in this. JAKs $20:

There is no doubt about it, hangovers make you look trashy. I’m sorry, but it’s true; however this situation is easily hidden from your pops. I highly recommend NOT getting blitzed (I recall my Box Wine Rebellion of 2008) the night before Father’s Day, but those wine bombs can sneak up on you right quick. If you do wind up looking wrecked on Sunday morning the perfect product to hide the traces of the night before is:

Arctic root and caffeine are the not-so-secret ingredients of this product which makes tired eyes look alive in the wake of an evening of binge drinking. With a no mess formula and instant cooling effect you can’t go wrong.  Get it, and store it in your purse for emergencies. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer 0.17 oz $18.50:

Those are just three products to use this Father’s Day to help you look less like Lindsay Lohan and more like the college graduation photo of you your dad keeps on his desk at work. Sense of decency and turquoise wig sold separately.
