31 quotes that may change your view of fatherhood from real moms and daughters: What the women in your life really think of you

As part of our big Father’s Day gift guide giveaway over the past few weeks, we asked some simple questions of our readers for a chance to enter. We expected lots of different responses. What we didn’t expect though, is how emotional we all have been reading all of your answers, especially to the question: Tell us why the special dad in your life deserves to win. It’s clear that women really value their husbands, partners, or fathers for so many different reasons; and more interestingly, for lots of the same reasons. So from more than 200 responses, here’s just a small sampling of some of our favorites. Because...

The new Dove Men+Care Calls for Dad Video: Way to go, Dove! And way to go dads.

It’s been so awesome working with Dove Men+Care on our Father’s Day Gift Guide this year, because, they really believe in celebrating dads in the best, most insightful, most 21st century way.

Got the tissues out?   What an exquisitely produced, lovely and insightful way to honor the kinds of caring, involved dads we are seeing more and more these days; not just playing with their kids, but kissing boo-boos, smothering them...

POW! It’s a superhero gift for dad on Father’s Day. Because he is obviously a superhero.

Father’s Day is a red letter day, and now maybe even a Green Hornet day. If you need a beautiful, geek chic gift for the Superman in your life–or just the dad who really really loves comic books–this framed Custom Superhero Letter is here to save the day. This is one superhero gift that’s super easy to customize.  Spell out DAD or POP (or BIF OR POW) in his favorite comics, do his initials, or let that iconic “S” speak for itself. Just let the artist from Spotted Flats know which recycled comic, which letters, and what color frame you want, and...

A fragrance for Father’s Day, for Dude No. 1 in your life

I may have attacked my husband the first time I dabbed some Dude No. 1 from MCMC Fragrances on his neck. It’s that good. And when I dabbed their Hunter eau de parfum on my neck, I was attacked in return. The best Father’s Day gifts, in my opinion, involve that kind of selfless dedication. Oh, wait. I mean selfish. I first discovered MCMC Fragrances as a sample in a Bergamot box. When I realized that two of my favorite fragrance samples this year were from MCMC, I had to contact them for more information on Father’s Day fragrances. Turns out they recently...

Stumped about the perfect Valentine’s gift for a man who’s hard to shop for?

If you want to branch out from the same-old Valentine’s gift for the stylish man in your life, these gorgeous, romantic, handmade Valentine’s Day Cufflinks from Digby & Iona will make all the other dudes green with envy. (Or you know, roll their eyes. Depends on the dudes. Hopefully yours has cool, artistic friends who can appreciate such coolness.) Each pair of cufflinks is handmade in Brooklyn of oxidized sterling silver and carved with the initials you indicate. If you loved Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree as a paean to selfless love, you’ll be glad to know it was...

Who are you wearing? Oh, Jane Austen.

Shirts with a book cover or favorite quote are pretty cool. But you get even more bibliophile points for wearing a shirt with the entire book’s text permanently embedded in the fabric. If you loved these book posters we covered, get ready to shop. Wordies, listen up. The Litographs site is heaven for bibliophiles. They take your favorite classic books and use 75,000 words from the text to create interesting designs that go with the story. And then you can have it hand printed (front and back) on a soft cotton/poly blend shirt, poster, or bag in a variety...

Is there anything cuter than a dad reading to his kids?

What’s cuter than a dad reading to his kids? It’s a dad reading to his kids while wearing an adorable shirt featuring this distinctive artwork by the ever awesome Edward Gorey.

I promise not to wear other sneakers. I promise not to wear other sneakers. I promise not to…

If your kids are suddenly behaving just a little too politely for your liking, we’ve got just the remedy. In the form of this awesome new collaboration between Converse and The Simpsons. The new Simpsons Converse Collection for kids and adults will be available on the site starting Saturday, so mark your calendars, Groenig worshippers. There are three awesome designs on the Chuck Taylor All-Stars: one featuring Homer in a d’oh moment, one with Bart at the chalkboard he’s been hovering over for the last 25 years (!!), and one featuring the whole family with all the secondary characters...

The best Father’s Day tie just might be a bow tie. Or, a Bowie tie.

We might have found the best Father’s Day gift ever. And yes, it’s a tie. We’re crushing on the retro-cool ties made from hand-drawn images by Etsy artist Kayci Wheatley. Whether your dad’s into pin-on bow ties or tie-em-yourself neckties, you’re covered with illustrations of David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, and Tupac, who probably never wore a bow tie himself.  If you have deep pockets, she’ll even design a 100% cotton fabric just for you, print it with one of her original designs, and then make it into a tie. Hello, coolest Father’s Day ever. Checking her past sales on Etsy,...
