Fantastic Finds for the Finicky Father

“What should I buy for my father/husband/brother (etc.)?” is a frequent question we hear – especially this time of year, with Father’s Day right around the corner.

Fret no more! We’re here with a curated list of the most fantastic finds for even the most finicky man in your life… And best of all, they’re all available in-store at steve mckenzie’s, ready to be gift wrapped and enjoyed!


So many options in one image… Pictured above is a plethora of fantastic Father’s Day gift options; a hand made leather bag, custom leather-covered igloo coolers (great for school colors), leather and cow hide flasks, vintage bottle openers, and Native American pillows made from vintage U.S. Army surplus goods.


For the Don Drapers in our lives: martini buffet hand crafted in Asheville NC, and cow hide pillows.


Next up, Taki watches. Sure, watches may be a traditional gift for the men in our lives, but these fun accessories from Taki offer an exciting, yet casual twist to the otherwise stuffy timepiece our guys may be wearing. This will be a gift they’ll enjoy every time they slide it on their wrist!

The 5 Best Valentine’s Gifts for Guys

Some may say the guys have it easier come Valentine’s day… Flowers, chocolates, a romantic dinner. Although many may argue that point – perhaps your significant other is a bit more picky?

But we think buying a gift for the guy in your life may be a bit more challenging. Lucky for you, we’ve sifted through all our wares here in the steve mckenzie showroom and have selected what we think are the 5 BEST Valentine’s Gifts for Guys:


  • Field Notes – perfect for writing those love notes, these small notebooks offer BIG versatility. They also provide a perfect pocket fit. Each book is bound with a heavy duty saddle-stitch process and measures 3.5″ x 5.5″


  • Engraved Pewter Flask by Salisbury – the quality and craftsmanship in these classic flasks will not go unnoticed by the man in your life. It’s the perfect vehicle to accompany him to those tailgate parties and bonfires… Add a modern, masculine monogram, or engraved name, and give him a gift he’ll always treasure.


  • Taki Watch – show your guy how fabulous, funk and funky he is without putting a big dent in your pocketbook with a Taki watch. Both Steve and Jill wear these timepieces just about everyday. They make checking to see how early you are for your next client meeting so much more fun 🙂 Click here to view a full Taki watch feature post.
