Great news: There’s still time to get your dad an awesome Father’s Day gift! And just because June 18 is almost here doesn’t mean you have to settle for anything less than thoughtful for the father figure in your life. That’s because Legends Outlets totally has you covered. Our team made a quick stop at various stores and picked up tons of stuff for all kinds of dads at all kinds of price points!
The first place we stopped was Books-A-Million, where we found a super diverse assortment of gift ideas. From the techy dad to the cool dad, this place legitimately has it all. On the top of our list was a pocket drone! Unmanned aircrafts are all the rage right now, and what better way to get outdoors with dad and learn something new together? The Pocket Drone is on sale right now for $180, too, so it’s a steal (normally priced at $200+). Another hot item for the tech dad is the Immerse Plus Virtual Reality Headset, which couples with his smartphone for an awesome VR experience.
For the cool, collector dad, definitely look into Books-A-Million’s excellent variety of hard and paperback books. Some titles we recommend include The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy and Nathan Whitaker, and Shoe Dog, a Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight.
We also loved its vinyl section, where we picked up Bruce Springsteen’s latest album, Chapter and Verse, which would make an awesome combo gift alongside his recently published autobiography, Born to Run – also available at Books-A-Million.
We also had a lot of fun shopping Books-A-Million’s novelty and gadget section, where we picked up a handy multi-use tool that includes a hammer and bottle opener, a BBQ apron, a stainless steel travel tumbler, and a sign that says “BEST DAD IN THE UNIVERSE!”
Next stop was Wilson’s Leather, where we picked up a couple high-end gifts for the traveling dad. More than just leather coats, Wilson’s had a ton of cool accessories and travel must-haves for the dad on the go! We scored a beautiful Kenneth Cole Reaction top zip travel kit, and a Wilson’s Leather passport cover. These two thoughtful items topped our list for the dad who seems to already have it all.
Also for the cool dad, you should of course consider stopping at Sunglass Hut. We grabbed two absolute staples – Rayban Wayfarers in black and top-selling Oakley sport shades.
For the sporty dad, definitely check out Sports Nutz. We were blown away by the selection – way more than just jerseys and hats (but those are awesome too)! We fell in love with double-walled stainless beverage glasses that feature dad’s favorite sporting team. To help him show his pride, we also grabbed a car flag, and a shiny chrome decal. Whatever side of the state line you’re from, Sports Nuts has you – and your dad – covered!
To go with the team spirit drinkware, we grabbed a galvanized bucket from Sports Nuts that would make a great base for a customized gift basket for dad. We filled ours with a variety of soda from KC Soda Co., now featuring an assortment of “DAD’s” brand craft sodas. (See what we did there?!)
Of course we had to stop at Eddie Bauer Outlet to shop for our outdoorsy dads! They told us their best selling dad’s gift this year is this amazing packable backpack we picked up in navy blue. They have a variety of colors and sizes but this lightweight travel staple inspired us to grab it and go! Other awesome ideas at Eddie Bauer include a nylon-lined fleece camping blanket with a soft and fuzzy layer that protects from the elements and also rolls up with a great traveling strap. We also scored a really popular Insulated Backpack Cooler – perfect for picnicking or packing snacks on a hike. We also loved their staple camping lantern – an affordable and thoughtful must-have for any dad who loves the great outdoors!
And last but not least, what kind of Father’s Day would it be without a fabulous tie!? We stopped at Brooks Brothers Factory Store to nab their St. Jude’s Striped Tie. If you’re looking for a gift for dad that gives back, definitely pick this stylish tie: Brooks Brothers donates $10 to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital with the purchase of every St. Jude’s tie and pocket square, now through June 18. Another great option for the dapper dad is a classic Brooks Brothers watch with a signature fabric watch band.
