10 Gifts for the Cool Dad, Father’s Day Edition


10 Gifts for the Cool Dad, Father’s Day Edition

June 16, 2015

We asked Brooklyn DJ, blogger, and design aficionado Myles Tipley, to clue us in: What do (cool or wannabe cool) dads really want? He immediately supplied us with his own wish list for Father’s Day.

Above: Myles with his wife (and fellow DJ) Lindsey Tipley and their three-year-old, Henry, in Williamsburg. Myles blogs about “vibes and stuff” at Myles Henry. Photograph by Christelle de Castro.

Above: “The design books I’ve been wanting are Commune: Designed in California ($37.66), Modern Originals: At Home with Midcentury European Designers, $35.71, by Leslie Williamson, and photographer Paul Barbera’s Where They Create ($34).”

Above: “Can’t go wrong with this: Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch“; $106.99 from BevMo. Photograph via Tomorrow Started.

Above: “And as the perfect companion, I’m into these smoky Hand-Blown Whiskey Glasses.” Made by a small glass studio in Seattle, they’re $32 each and $118 for a set of four from Food52.

Above: “To add a mellow vibe to my work setup, I have my eye on a Japanese Ceramic Incense Holder ($32 each from General Store). And, to go with it, Stussy’s Kuumba International Incense Pack ($15).”

Above: “I really don’t wear cologne, but I like this one–sort of a natural scent, and not too overpowering.” Bravado 3 by Baxter of California is $85 from Saturdays Surf.

Above: “One of the best parts of being married: There’s always fancy soap in my house. This is one of my favorites.” Kiehl’s Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap with oat bran and pumice is $15 a bar from Kiehl’s.

Above: “It’s the perfect time of year for a new pair of sunglasses. I’ve been eyeing Oliver People’s MP-2 Matte Black ($450) from Gentry.”

Above: “I’m a hat guy, so there are always about five new ones that I want. I love this Ball Cap collaboration between Maiden Noir and Sneeze Magazine. A play on an Oakland A’s hat, it’s just so good”; $45 from Maiden Noir. “And here’s another I have my eye on: the Navy Ball Cap ($95) with a suede rim from Gentry. I usually cheap out on myself and would never spend that much for a cap, but my wife would splurge on it.”

Above: “I’ve been into this instant film camera lately. We actually already own one and have started using it to take photos of friends we have over for dinner; our guest shots all go up on a board.” The Fujifilm Instax 210 Camera is $92 from Opening Ceremony.

Above: “My wife and I have been trying to buy original pieces of art for each other. I love these 1990s photos by Lisa Leone.” Go to HVW8 gallery to see more and inquire about pricing.

For more ideas from Myles, take a look at his DJ-Approved Home Stereo Equipment and DIY: $65 Laundry Closet.

Gardenista suggests you consider a DIY Hanging Orchid for Father’s Day.
