Instead of defaulting to neckties this Father’s Day, lean into the adage that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, by stocking up on food gifts instead. We’re talking a bacon box from Mantry, a pizza oven from Uuni, an apron from Hedley and Bennett and more!
Mantry Snack Box ($59): Where better to turn for Father’s Day provisions than the #1 food subscription service for men? Six artisan products are curated around a failsafe theme, like “Bourbon BBQ” (Hot Georgia Soul Sauce), “Tailgate Tour” (La Esquina Black Bean Dip), “Pizza Party” (Hayden Flour Mill Flour) or “Bacon Nation” (Skillet Bacon Spread).
Casa Buchanan’s Pop-Up Treat your dad to an entire man cave-style experience, courtesy of the Sip n’ Shave pop-up at Man Made Barber Shop. He’ll be able to choose between a complimentary hot shave, beard trim or haircut, and sample 18-year-aged Buchanan’s Special Reserve whisky, along with a selection of hors d’oeuvres.
Uuni Pizza Oven ($299):Why draw the line at smoking and grilling meat? Your dad can make like a professional pizzaiolo (not to mention utilize his Mantry box) if you install a portable, wood-fired pizza oven in his backyard. The Uuni heats up to 900-degrees, operates easily on wood pellets, and churns out incredible, char-crusted pies in seconds flat.
Mouth’s “Super Man” ($58.50-146.50): Leave it to Brooklyn-based Mouth to gather the perfect, small-batch products to suit any and all occasions. And Father’s Day is no different — consider the “Super Man” (which includes a can of Grady’s Cold Brew, Filet Mignon Jerky from Three Jerks, Beer and Caramel Pretzel Nuggets and more), and “Dad’s Gotta Eat;” a smorgasbord of Roasted Chile Salsa, Organic Candy Factory Gummy Bears, and Chocolate Espresso Cookies from Grey Ghost.
Hedley & Bennett Apron ($98): Defend against sauce stains and pepperoni puddles with this stylish poly cotton twill apron, which was co-designed with Dominique Ansel, and contributes profits to the RED campaign; an organization combating epidemics like AIDS.
Simeon Abay Coffee from Extraction Lab ($18+): Forget about Folgers; for dad, the best part of waking up should be Simeon Abay in his cup. Your dad will be able to get up and go if you treat him to top of the line joe from Industry City’s Extraction Lab. Priced at $18 a cup (or available as beans by the baggie), the Ethiopian, dry-processed specialty is sweet and effervescent, with notes of strawberry, citrus blossom, pear cider and roasted almond.
