Father’s Day is fast approaching, and the man who introduced you to Bob Dylan, John Wayne, and stinky cheese deserves more than a tie.
Get pops a little StndAir time. The Standard Hotel’s just-launched air charter service leaves from 23rd Street and FDR, starts at $30, and makes it out to East Hampton in 45 minutes flat. In a red Cessna 208 Caravan seaplane with rosé and Swedish Fish, he’ll be riding high.
Dad has always been a bit, er, different. Show him you’ve learned to embrace that individuality with a timepiece by Dedegumo watches. The Lower East Side Japanese import’s one-of-a-kind tickers are true originals — just like him. Creations start at $370.
Take a Dip
Onia makes smart, grown-man swimming trunks for around $130, but since Dad taught you to be thrifty, take 20 percent off with code ONIADAD11 through June 17.
For the thinking man/chef, Man with a Pan is an honest collection of essays and recipes by fathers who cook. Compiled by The New Yorker cartoonist and editor John Donohue, the book allows Gramps to commiserate with foodies (Mario Batali) and writers (Jack Hitt, Mohammed Naseehu Ali) alike. It’s a budget gift at just $10.
And whatever you do, don’t forget to call your mother.
