8 Father's Day Favorite Gift Ideas
Give the gift of protection and style. The company Portel is designing some intriguing iPad sleeves, bags, belts and wallets. We're obsessed with their iPad sleeves made from thick natural felt. These handmade sleeves are designed not only to dress up your iPad while not in use, but to protect it from those minor accidental bumps and bangs. These sleeves fit both the iPad and iPad2 and come in a range of thoughtful colors.
- This year, make sure to give Dad the gift of great design with these picks from the Dwell Store.
I have a deep seated love for my iPhone, my iPad, and my iPod. The items I chose for Dwell's Holiday Gift Guide represent some of my favorite finds this year. Most of the items on my list are gadgets (or gadget related), with a few exceptions. Regardless of the bucket in which they fall, I think you’ll agree that these products are impressively designed.
- As soon as a new gizmo hits—I'm looking at you, iPad—the design world races to kit it out with sleek accessories.
Sometimes you don't need a purse, or man bag, or backpack, or any other kind of bulky carry-all to weigh you down when you walk out the door. Sometimes you just want to slip a little something in your pocket, and this iMojito is quite a cool little polyeurethane number for your iPhone, credit cards, and a bit of cash to make it through the day.
- If your standard Father's Day gift loops round pop's throat, why not swap silk for steel and get him something he'll really stick his neck out for?
Outdoor parties aren't complete without games and we love the Akiko Pétanque set by Akiko Kuwahata and Hans Thyge. Made of teak and chromed steel, this set is so beautifully designed that you won't want to put it away after the game is over.
- In the same fashion that we are turning to locally sourced, farm to table, slow food, our aesthetics, like our stomachs, are drawn to a simpler, cleaner, and more natural way of life.
