We love dads. We'll say it. And while we love them for who they are, sometimes dads need a little nudge—and deserve a little something special. For the dad in your life, we've put together this quick list of beautifully stylish, simple essentials that can up the dad game. Take a look at these American-made gift ideas and let your dad intuition do the rest.


1. Smoky Pouch, French Garment Cleaners

Dad's got his indulgences—and he deserves a special place to keep them. This French-made "smoky pouch" from our friends at French Garment Cleaners is a rarefied way to store tobacco accessories or other treasures. We love its canvas heft and timeless style.

2. Key Fob, TM 1985

Dads lose things—it's true. Why not give your favorite dad a leg up with this dashing leather key fob from New York designers TM 1985? Clips right to him, or if he's a valet parking sort of dad, comes apart for easy key-sharing.


3. Sustainable Coffee Filter, Able Brewing

The coffee geeks at Able Brewing have done one better on the hand-poured coffee world and invented the KONE filter, a reusable conical filter made of perforated stainless steel that Dad can use again and again in his Chemex or other cone-shaped dripper. Say goodbye to paper. Made in Portland, Oregon.

4. Apron, Hedley and Bennett

It's almost impossible to pick a favorite apron from Hedley and Bennett's handsome collection, but we like the Cider House apron on Dad for those summer tasks that might otherwise dirty his seersucker. Made in Los Angeles.

5. Cocktail Kit, AHeirloom

We'd be remiss if we didn't name our own favorite Dad gift from the A Heirloom workshops: for the Dad who fancies himself a mixologist, our wood and Corian cocktail muddler and cocktail cherry kit is just the thing. Can be personally engraved, and are built to last in Brooklyn.
