Some sweet tech gifts for dad that he will actually use:   C3PO Mimobot: Fussy but loyal protocol droid (aka USB flash drive). $17-$69. Freeletics. A fitness app we love. You can actually hire a “personal trainer” that tailors workouts to your level. It integrates in some Greek mythology too. (Hint: you begin on Hades) Trainer is […]

We love the Father’s Day gift set that Pierrepont Hicks is doing this year…it comes with a tie, pancake mix from Wisconsin-based Great American Pancake Company, and Vermont-based maple syrup from Bobo’s Mountain Sugar. A clever combination of classics. (Photo by @joegannon)


For Brian Leaf, author of Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi: Cloth Diapers, Cosleeping, and My (Sometimes Successful) Quest for Conscious Parenting, fatherhood is not what he imagined. It’s harder. It’s less… enlightened—and more enlightening. With an arc that includes the idea of baby all the way through some of the high and low points of […]


My friend Jonathan Bernstein, along with Lori Majewski, wrote this great new book, Mad World: An Oral History of New Wave Artists and Songs That Defined the 1980s.

Here’s a gift you can stack up, comes with a gift card, is $39, and is made in the USA. We love these kid apron sets from Odette Williams, a mom based in Brooklyn, who is going to also be making them adult sizes soon. Let’s hope in time for this Mother’s and Father’s Day?! […]


Talk about a special present for the holidays, or Mother’s/Father’s Day…these custom wooden rattles are actually custom family portraits. You upload onto the Cameo by Rux site, portraits that are done in profile, of each parent, and then they are carved into the rattle. The baby’s name is also etched onto the handle.

He’s a man with a great eye–an uber-creative who does everything from branding to publishing in his role as the co-founder of Partners & Spade, and was the founder of Jack Spade, and co-founder of Kate Spade. We asked him to tell us how he’s spending his day: How does Father’s Day ideally unfold for […]


Glenn O’Brien’s bio is an impressive and lengthy one. He’s a writer, editor, and creative director, and has contributed to pretty much every magazine that counts (Interview, Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Esquire to name a few). Glenn has had a TV show, produced music and made movies. I read his GQ column “The Style Guy” faithfully each […]
