Father’s Day Gift Ideas Part 1

How about you put some thought into your Father’s Day gifts this year? Let’s face it, without your Father you wouldn’t be here today…right? Forgive me for being so abrupt, but being a new father, I kind of take this day seriously. I mean when did ties, wallets and Home Depot gift cards become the norm? You take Mother’s Day seriously don’t you…then why not Father’s Day?!? Although you’d like to think most fathers are easy to shop for, the truth is we really aren’t. Don’t worry though, over the next 5 days we’ve put together a list of great gift ideas to cater to all different types of fathers. So sit back, relax and breathe a sigh of relief ’cause The Class Room has you covered for Father’s Day.

Let it be known I LOVE fishing, but don’t get it twisted you’ll never catch me rocking visors, wrap around sunglasses, cargo shorts and crocs. No disrespect to Academy Sports and Outdoors nor Bass Pro, but when did these items become the official sponsors of dad’s that love to fish? I get it, all those pockets in your cargo short are functional, crocs are comfortable and visors are err…no comment. What I don’t understand is often times fathers who love to fish wear the same type of clothing when they’re NOT fishing. Ernest Hemmingway was much more a fisherman than your father currently is (and probably will ever be) and I promise you he’d NEVER be caught dead wearing crocs or wraparound sunglasses.

This Father’s Day opt for this Hurly Striped T-shirt from Vanishing Elephant that pairs well with Gant Rugger’s Wheat Shorts. Not only will you look like a genius with this thoughtful gift(s), but you’ll  save your father the embarrassment this Father’s Day and allow him to keep any ounce of dignity he has left by opting for some clothes that’ll not allow him to look like this any longer.
