Father's Day Gift Guide

I really enjoy shopping for the men in my life. What typical men's products lack in color, they make up for in utility and sophistication of design. If there is ever a "man's version" of an item, it's usually a) indestructible or b) humorous. Plus, when I ask most dads what they really want for Father's Day, they're honest and simple: To grill out and relax. That sure beats a dress-up, fresh-flowered, mimosa brunch any day in my book! Sorry, Mom. :)

In short, Dads give the biggest bear hugs, the most practical advice, and you can usually count on him for a corny joke when you're feeling down. Make Father's Day a little extra special with this fun gift guide for the Poppa in your life.

Want. Need. Wear. Read (Read).
WANT: Like mowing the grass or changing the oil, heading to the office can be a chore. But liven up Dad's document processing with these fun Star Wars characters thumb drives. I know CCA has some huge Star Wars fans, leaving only one question: Which character will you pick?

NEED: Okay, Dads, I know I won't find most of you laying around with cucumbers on your eyelids, but seriously, "mancuring" is a thing. Kiehl's makes it simple: Cleanse, Shave, Moisturize. With this handy kit, even the most minimal morning routine will leave you fresh and awake. 

WEAR: Fathers are excellent activists and advocates for their children. Supply Dad with a stockpile of these "Choose Kind" wristbands and he'll surely share them with his golfing (fishing, motorcycle, Crossfit...) buddies. It's a simple, effective method of introducing CCA to another network of allies and supporters.

READ: In his new book, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success, Phil Jackson talks about what it was like to be the head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers and winning more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. He also talks about what it was like to manage, coach, guide, and inspire larger-than-life personalities. If he is a sports fan, Daddy-o would certainly enjoy reading this book in a new ENO Hammock. I had to throw this extra gift idea in the mix because seriously, it's summer and these hammocks are amazing! I've enjoyed mine several times this year and they couldn't be easier to hang. Toss one up for Dad and bring him a cool glass of lemonade. Day made? Pretty sure. 

*Make sure you visit these retailers via, who donates a portion of each purchase to CCA!
