Father's Day Gift Guide (FROM THE DADS)

While I contemplated creating my own gift guide for Father's Day, this year I decided to let the Dads tell us what they want (isn't that easier for us, anyways?) We've rounded up the coolest Dad's we know to find out what's on their wishlist this year.

Mach - Connecticut

What's your day job?
I run my own marketing and design consultancy called 4 Mile Creative.

What does your dream Father's Day look like?
The perfect Father’s Day includes a new adventure with the fam. A few years ago, my wife planned a hike with the kids - partially along the Appalachian trail - that ended with a cheese, bread, and a cold-beer spread while overlooking this serene lake (only to be interrupted midway through by a real Appalachian-trail hiker taking a bath in said lake).

If you could pick your own Father's Day gift this year what would it be?
All dads love gear and the best father’s day gifts are ones that you wouldn’t go out and buy yourself. Like this baby-carrier hiking backpack, which my wife bought for me to use on the hike and made the whole outdoor adventure feel legit.

What's your day job?
I work as an Executive Producer for BBDO, an advertising agency in New York City.

What does your dream Father's Day look like?
Something fun outdoors with the family, followed by a BBQ and some leisurely hanging out at home.

If you could pick your own Father's Day gift this year what would it be? I'm pretty deep into smart home automation research right now - so maybe a Nest or August Smart Lock, or a Samsung SmartThings Hub!

Jeremy - Connecticut

What's your day job?

I'm an Endodontist (dentist who specializes in root canal treatments).

What does your dream Father's Day look like?

An early morning round of golf followed by brunch with the family and a nap in the backyard. In the evening I'd love to go out on a date to our favorite restaurant and to a movie of my choosing -- probably an action or sci-fi movie. The end of the evening goes without saying :)

Brian - California

What's your day job?
I work on the finance team for a new men's brand that Gap is launching called Hill City.

What does your dream Father's Day look like?
I would like to have my wife get the kids in the morning, I would roll downstairs around 8:15, get a coffee that has been prepared already, then head out for a dog walk with the gang. When we get back, we could head over to the pool and swim until lunch.  Then we would head home, clean up, then head to a nice dinner out all together. Keeping it simple is the best advice.

If you could pick your own Father's Day gift this year what would it be?
I want the Kindle that my Mother In-Law promised for my Birthday but hasn't yet delivered!


Swag - Connecticut

What's your day job?
I work as a surgical resident so am in the middle of a pretty long road of training.

What does your dream Father's Day look like?
Taking a day to go camping/fishing trip to a nearby lake with family and friends. 

If you could pick your own Father's Day gift this year what would it be?
I have a 1971 Bronco that could use a lot of parts...
