Father’s Day is coming right around the corner on June 16, so if you haven’t bought a gift for dad, it’s time to start shopping.

If you’d rather indulge dad with a great cigar, peruse our ratings section of more than 17,000 cigar reviews. And to give dad a cigar that’s smoking well right now, click here to see the top cigars we’ve rated in the last three months.
OneBlade Hybrid Razor ($199)
For years, the principal approach to shaving advancements has been to simply add blades (you can get as many as six). But, oddly, the more edges, the less a shaving system seems to weigh. Now, OneBlade rolls back the morning ritual to a single-cutting edge, and in the process restores requisite heft and maneuverability. As well as a sturdy build, the easy-loading system has been highly engineered for optimal blade angles with a floating head and easy rinsing. The Hybrid model is available in a convenient travel bag with signature shaving cream and after after-shave balm. - Visit www.onebladeshave.com.
Stitch Leather Golf Club Head Covers ($68 to $98)
While dad may occasionally curse at his driver or putter, rest assured he still wants to protect his clubs from harm (most of the time). Help him out with a set of leather golf club head covers from Stitch, a North Carolina-based company. Hand crafted from 100 percent leather, each cover is water and stain resistant and is engineered to ensure a snug fit that will stay secure on dad’s clubs. The covers will protect all types of woods, from drivers to hybrids, along with putters. Stitch offers a variety of colors and styles, including a design inspired by Arnold Palmer (center). - Visit www.stichgolf.com
Riedel Cocktail Glasses (price varies)
The glass gurus at Riedel have long specialized in specific glasses for specific types of wine. Today, they’re expanding their lines of cocktail glasses, with six new vessels that direct the liquid to certain areas of the tongue, depending on what you’re drinking. We’re particularly fond of the Nick & Nora ($29.90/set of two), a 4 7/8 ounce glass meant to hold a small Martini in the fashion of those gulped by Nick and Nora Charles, the couple for which it is named. The clear spirit aficionados drank copious amounts of gin in the 1934 film The Thin Man. - Visit www.riedel.com.
Puma’s Relaxed Golf Shirts ($75)
Untucked dress shirts are growing in popularity—but how about on the golf course? If you want a look that switches it up from the form-fitting, traditional polo, look to Puma’s Golf Play Loose Collection Paradise Golf Shirt. The shirt’s pattern of palm and pine trees may calm your nerves if you miss a three-footer, and the modern-day stretch material allows for give when you swing and avoids wrinkles when you pack it for travel. And if anyone gives you grief for playing with the hem of your shirt showing, tell them Rickie Fowler wore the same look at Torrey Pines. - Visit www.cobragolf.com.

You anchor the heavy-duty straps to something sturdy and follow the app in a variety of workouts that use bodyweight to tucker out those muscles.

For years, stressed executives have turned to desktop zen gardens and Newton’s Cradle devices to relieve work pressure before diving back in to finish the job. Buddha Board takes this idea further, offering dad a creative outlet to remind him about the art of letting go. To paint on the Buddha surface you only need water, not paint or inks.
