Your NYC Father’s Day Gift Guide
If you haven’t looked at your calendar this week, take note that Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 18th. If your dad is anything like mine, a hand written card and a home cooked meal will do the trick. But dads deserve to be treated to something special on Father’s Day, right? With all dads in mind, from those right here in New York City to others across the country, we’ve got the inside scoop of gift options every father is sure to enjoy!
For The Dad Who Cherishes His Grooming Time
For that group of dads who are as meticulous about their morning shave as others are with their BBQing techniques, gifting your dad with a luxurious shaving kit will do the trick! We love the products available at The Art of Shaving. Not only are they high quality, long lasting, and well packaged, but they’re also running a fantastic Father’s Day promo right now:
Buy a full sized shaving kit for Dad, get a free 30 ml cologne!
The Art of Shaving has several stores in NYC, including Columbus Circle, Rock Center, and Grand Central – making this a super easy gift to pick up on your way home from work!
For The Sentimental Dad
If your dad loves to remanence over old photos, crafting a personalized scrapbook is the perfect idea for Father’s Day. However, truth be told, not everyone is gifted in arts and crafts. Between sorting through photos, ordering prints, cutting, pasting, and captioning each, it can be exhausting!
To avoid this exhaustion and rather save your energy for Father’s Day festivities, consider gifting him a Chatbooks.
You simply download the app, create a free account, and as soon as you “favorite” 60 photos from your photo library, the app will create a beautiful, high quality photo album. The best part? This custom album is shipped straight to your door for $8! If you can keep a secret, my dad, father-in-law, and husband are all getting one of these for Father’s Day!
Chatbooks photo albums are perhaps the perfect Father’s Day gift for those dads who live far away. It’s a beautiful way for them to stay up to date on all the day-to-day family moments.

For The Dad Who Loves Technology
If your father is always the first to know about the latest flat screen TV, best DSLR camera, or FitBit that tracks when you’re feeling stressed, consider heading to B&H Photo Video for his gift this year.
B&H is a NYC institution, and the best part about going here is that it’s fully stocked with exceptionally knowledgable salesmen who are more than willing to spend time with you, listening to what your dad likes, what he already uses, and ultimately recommending the latest gadget or piece of gear that will complement his tech collection!
B&H Photo Video is located at 420 9th Avenue. If you happen to already have an item in mind for dad, order it online, and it will be ready for pick up at this location within an hour. Perfect for last minute gifts!
For The Dad Who Wears Suits
If your dad’s work uniform is a suit and tie, throw a little fun into his daily mix with some colorful socks! My husband discovered Happy Socks a few years ago, and ever since, it’s been the easiest go-to gift for every occasion. The concept of the store is to stock bright, colorful socks that bring a pop of fun to daily office wear and suits. You can pick up a single pair for $12, or get a boxed set for $45, which make for the perfect (and affordable) gift for your small child to purchase with their allowance for dad!
The store is located in Soho on 436 West Broadway Street.
