Father’s Day gift ideas

Looking for the perfect gift for Dad this Father’s Day? Our Director Mark Wallace Maguire has compiled a list of ideas for your No. 1 guy. 


Atlanta Blaze Tickets
Prices vary
Game times vary

With at least three home games left on the schedule, how about taking Dad out for a lacrosse match. Atlanta’s first professional lacrosse franchise is bound to be exciting. Bonus: They play at KSU’s Fifth Third Bank Stadium.

Bugatchi tie and socks combos
$19.95 for a pair of socks
$79.95 for a tie
Available at select men’s stores and at Nordstrom

This Italian brand has been crafting some of the most stylish and cutting-edge men’s clothing since 1981. Their signature modernity and contemporary design is on display again this season with these ties and socks.

The ties are handmade and are perfect to add a splash of colorfully-tailored style to any shirt or suit. The socks are also exceptional. Not only are they unique in their color and patterns, but also are 90 percent cotton making them the most comfortable pair of socks I’ve ever worn.


Gaea Olive Oil
Prices vary
Whole Foods Market
Two locations in Cobb:
70 Powers Ferry Road, SE, Marietta,
Merchant’s Walk, 1311 Johnson Ferry Road #580, Marietta

Prime for grilling, marinating or mixing with some balsamic vinegar for a dipping sauce, this line of olive oils is extremely tasty and smooth. A perfect gift for the dad who is also a chef.

Unbreakable pint glass
$25 for a set of four
Available at www.pubware.com and at select beverage stores

Pouring the perfect pint is one thing, but having the perfect pint glass is on another level altogether. And by perfect, we mean the real feel of a pint glass, but made of plastic, but doesn’t feel like plastic and, more importantly, it doesn’t break. Truly, we tested it out and were happily surprised. Bonus: It will not crack haze or discolor. It is also BPA-free.
