Father's Day 2021 Gift Ideas for…

The Professional

For the successful dad who's always on his grind, takes pride in his work, and crushes it at the (home) office day in and day out…

  • Orbitkey Desk Mat: The Orbitkey Desk Mat is a sleek and stylish way to keep Dad’s desk organized, and it comes with some clever features built into its premium vegan leather and 100% recycled PET felt construction. Flipping it open from the corner reveals a stealthy document storage compartment,  and its top section comes with a special groove for his favorite pen as well as a magnetic cable holder to keep his phone charged. (Buy)

  • Bellroy Flight Bag: The Bellroy Flight Bag is a minimalist but versatile travel bag made from Recycled Dura Nylon for organizing the professional dad’s essentials. The 28L bag opens flat with plenty of compartments (including space for a 16“ laptop) and storage for a weekend business trip, while still meeting carry-on restrictions. He can also carry it three ways depending on his needs: as a briefcase, as a messenger, or as a backpack. (View on Amazon)

  • Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Canceling Headphones: One of the best gifts you can give your hardworking dad is some nice peace and quiet. The second best gift would be a pair of high quality noise canceling headphones, like the Sony WH-1000MX4s. They'll help him tune out distractions, make clear calls, and wind down after work to make his favorite music sound that much better. (View on Amazon)

  • Tactile Turn Slim Bolt Action Pen: The Slim Bolt Action Pen takes your dad’s pen game to the next level by slimming it down to a friendlier writing and carrying experience. He gets a choice of four premium materials and three sizes for his pen: titanium, copper, bronze, and zirconium, each of which can take on popular refills on the market. There’s even further customization on the bolt, clip, and engraving for the ultimate personalized gift. (Buy)

  • Boker Barlow Prime EDC: Classy traditional knives will never go out of style, but that doesn’t mean a style stuck in the last century. The Boker Barlow Prime EDC makes use of ice-hardened Bohler N690 stainless steel and sturdy black canvas micarta to be ready for the tasks a modern dad will face, while still keeping a traditional design at its core. (Buy)
