Father’s Day 2021: 9 Gift Suggestions from a Cool Dad


Father’s Day 2021: 9 Gift Suggestions from a Cool Dad

June 15, 2021

Myles Tipley is an Atlanta/NY-based DJ and design aficionado married to fellow DJ Lindsey Tipley (@djlindsey), who also writes and hosts Black Is Black on Sonos Radio.

We first discovered Myles via his blog; he’s since graduated to Instagram, where he posts about inspired rooms, furniture, cars; whatever catches his fancy (follow along at @myles.henry.tipley). Whenever we’re in need of fresh ideas, we say, “Let’s consult with Myles.” So for Father’s Day gift suggestions, we gave him a call. Here’s what’s on his list, in his own words:

marfa stool table by nikari
Above: I think this beautiful white ash Nikari Marfa Stool/Table ($642 from the Finnish Design Shop), designed by Swedish architects Claesson Koivisto Rune, paired with a nice book or magazine could be a great combo gift.
the motoring jounral 1
Above: A new magazine for car enthusiasts recently launched; it’s called The Motoring Journal. I really like their Instagram account as well as their podcast. Volume 1 is $18.


dean roper met ashtray 2
Above: I love these fun ash trays from Dean Roper (DM him on Instagram to purchase). So I’m imagining this little peaceful moment. Ash tray on top of the new stool/end table with some sandalwood or palo santo burning. Flipping through your new book or magazine. Liv.e record playing on the turntable. I think an album/record is always a great gift. Couldn’t Wait To Tell You… by Liv.e is one of my favorite records from this last year (I always try to order directly from the artist via Bandcamp when I can).
lichen ss21 candle tonndo
Above: Lichen is one of my favorite shops in NY. They sell mostly vintage furniture and home goods but they have recently started making their own products. I love this Lichen SS21 Candle by Tonndo with incense, gaiacwood, pepper, and vetiver notes. $36 from Lichen.
snowpeak folding coffee drip
Above: For backpacking dads, the stainless Collapsible Coffee Drip from Japanese outdoor suppliers Snowpeak is $29.95.
bright green effo short
Above:  I love these Effo Shorts ($75 from Adsum). Great alternative to the very popular Patagonia baggies. I’m always a sucker for a good Kelly green too.
Fathers Day 2021 9 Gift Suggestions from a Cool Dad portrait 7
Above: Gramparents is a great Instagram account curated by my buddy Kyle Kivijärvi. He just recently did a collaboration with Danish clothing brand Another Aspect. The tote is my favorite; $45 from AO.
crewneck sweatshirt paa
Above: This House of PAA Crew Neck Sweatshirt might be the best one that has ever existed; $210 from House of PAA.
