2024 Fathers Day Gift Guide
Words by Christiana Roussel

New dads, old dads, step-dads and soon-to-be-dads – all deserve to be celebrated big time. To the ones who support us with time, attention, counsel and some really epic dad jokes, we salute you.

Herewith, our Father’s Day Gift Guide for spoiling these men who matter.

Brisket Supply: Gloves and Kentucky-style leather belts

These hand-crafted gloves will be your man’s go-to when the temperatures dip again this fall. These are as at-home manning the backyard firepit as they are clutching an ice-cold beverage at a tailgate. With nearly three-dozen patched varieties to choose from (and custom-orders welcomed), your dad will always be representing. Be sure to check out their line of Kentucky-style leather belts as well, easily monogrammed to be memorable.

A Great Read: The Believer by David Coggins

If you have a fisherman in your life—the kind who tie flies in their spare time, or the one who pines for a new pair of waders—he’ll want a copy of David Coggins’ second book on his passion for pastime. In The Believer, the author-angler takes the reader along as he explores seven far-flung fishing destinations, sharing his insights and foibles. Equal parts travelogue and humor-filled, this is a book for those who understand fly-fishing is about way more than what you catch.

A Cooler Cooler 

This waxed canvas version from Mission Mercantile can be personalized so his buddies don’t try and make off with it after the long guys’ weekend. PS: these would make great groomsmen’s gifts too.

Ball & Buck Hat

Hats are having a moment—well, great hats have always been in style but finding the right one for your particular noggin can be a challenge. We love this one from Ball & Buck with its Raindura ® finish that ensures it will retain its original shape, even if it gets wet. 

Weekend Getaways

Macon for the Music Lover

Capricorn Sound Studios is the home to legendary Capricorn Records where bands like the Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band, Lynryd Skynyrd recorded some of their greatest hits. The revitalized space is now a museum, recording studio and music incubator for up-and-coming musical acts. PRO TIP: Make sure you ask for a tour of the sound studios.

Andiamo Lodge in Mentone, AL

Enjoy a small-scale luxury setting for a weekend getaway that can include anything from creative workshops to outdoor adventures to just some much needed downtime.

Great Stash Bags

Who doesn’t appreciate a smart, durable sidekick of a bag to stash your gear? We like this utility roll from Tennessee’s Bradley Mountain. The Tom Beckbe Canvas Carryall is perfect for work or travel and made for a lifetime of adventure. Of course, it is hard to beat the OG of hard-working bags, the classic LL Bean medium tote— customize it with olive trim paired with a coordinating monogram in olive or blaze orange.

Playing Cards

You can only play games on your phone for so long but having a nice pack of playing cards means more can join in—with or without wi-fi. We like this upland game bird variety from Kevin’s Catalog out of Thomasville, GA. PS: tuck these into one of the stash bags as an unexpected *bonus gift*.


There is something about a man who carries a pocketknife. Beyond being able to open all those Amazon packages lickety-split, a man who carries a pocketknife as part of his Every Day Carry is the kind of guy who is prepared for anything and knows how to keep up with nice things—traits we admire. This one from King Ranch Saddle Shop in Texas is as eye-catching as it is useful and comes already packaged in a pretty wooden case.

Custom Drinkware

If you’re of the opinion that you can never have too many party cups, then these personalized versions from New Orleans’ own design doyenne, Alexa Pulitzer, are the ideal go-to for go-cups. Available in plastic or foam, get clever by adding his famous one-liner catch phrase, the name of your beach house or just a simple monogram.


Your man is not like any other and great wrist wear can be just one way he sets himself apart. These bracelets from Dallas-based Billy Baker are a subtle way to signal he has a style all his own. Choose the ‘Dunmore’ as a nod to his favorite Harbour Island retreat or the ‘Negroni’ in honor of his cocktail-of-choice or the ‘Vesuvius’ made of inky-black lava stones.

Custom Stationery

They say “Manners Maketh Man” and sending handwritten notes certainly falls into that category. Augusta-based artist Kat McCall creates custom paper products that include golf, lodge and hunting motifs presented in a most elegant way. Add a book of stamps to this gift and remove all excuses for getting those notes in the mail spit-spot.
