Gift Guide: Father’s Day Gift Guide For Drink-Loving Dads

For my second installment of my partnership with World Market, the go-to, on trend, affordable furniture & accessories site, I’ve pulled together 10 goodies for guys who like their alcohol.

As I’ve mentioned before (numerous times in fact), I always think about setting up a bar for my husband, who is definitely a drink-loving dad. When he looks at real estate, the big draw after a garage is a butler’s pantry. The poor urban-dwelling dude doesn’t have a parking space or a bar cart.

Here is a cocktail-themed Father’s Day Gift Guide for dads who drink, with a reclaimed wood bar cart, mixers, copper mule mug, light-up letters, and even a sake-making kit. You know what could be cute too? A homemade cocktail recipe book. Get the kids on it ASAP.

Get the Look: 22 Men’s Watches

We seem to go through a lot of watches at our house. I still have my prized Cartier (thank goodness; I’d be crushed if I lost it…too expensive to replace), but oftentimes, especially in summer, I just like to throw on a Timex with a stretchy metal elastic bracelet. (I wear it to the movies too; Indiglo rocks.) Unfortunately, the batteries don’t last very long. At least mine don’t. I’ve taken to treating them as disposable, which is of course ridiculous.

My husband also favors a Timex. For him it’s a plain white face with black numbers and black (imitation?) leather strap. I’ve tried to buy him nicer watches, but he protests. I think I did finally get him to wear a similar style, slightly upgraded, but he does so begrudgingly. He loses them, which I don’t really get since he’s generally pretty organized. But whatever, not my problem. My son loses his watches too, which is my problem, but he just bought himself an expensive Swatch, so we’ll see.

I love wandering through watch stores, whether its Tourneau in Boston, Cartier in New York, or Wempe in London. (Admittedly, if there’s also jewelry I tend to get sidetracked by the diamonds.)

I did a roundup of 15 stainless steel watches for women in March, but with Father’s Day upon us, I thought it would be a good time to pull together a variety of men’s watches too. As with Mother’s Day, we don’t really observe Father’s Day either. (We’re equal opportunity holiday ignorers.) I kind of ignored my husband’s birthday this year too, which I wasn’t all that nice (but he didn’t want to go anywhere, do anything, or want anything), so he deserves some recognition. Obviously, not a watch.

Here are 22 men’s watches, from sporty to sleek from StyleCarrot partners.
