Our 2019 Father’s Day Gift Guide is live!! Looking for the perfect, thoughtful Father’s Day gifts for the dads in your life? We’ve got something for everyone on your list, in all price ranges and sizes…. and for every taste, too!
Can you even believe Father’s Day is right around the corner? I’ve never been one to know what to buy for the men in my life. I remember each year trying to find the best tie for my dad… and to think back, not even sure how much he wore (beyond my benefit) or appreciated them.
Now though, there are so many options! From candles and cologne to sunnies and watches, clothing and shoes. I’ve found the best gifts are the most practical – the ones that will be used regularly – and even perhaps, something the recipient wouldn’t buy for themselves but would be happy to own and wear. Chances are, if you pay a little attention in day-to-day life, you’ll see what someone is drawn to or uses on a regular basis, and gifting is the PERFECT time to upgrade or add to a collection (of watches, tees, athletic wear, etc).
The thing is, for Chris – as is the case for most of the men in our lives – many times he wouldn’t like a gift (too impractical) or it just wouldn’t fit. It’s the worst feeling to have ordered a present in the right size… or you DID order in the correct size, but the fit was just all wrong. Most mainstream manufacturers seem to run with a slim fit, so normal sizes fit too narrow for a great, comfortable fit. I never want to make the recipient of a gift feel awkward, or worse yet, less-than, because a size that should be a perfect fit… well, it just doesn’t.
That’s why I was so excited to come across DXL Big + Tall. Not only are they stocked with incredible brands in just about every category, but you don’t have to worry about sizes, they’ve got everyone covered… it is a one-stop shop for all guys, big and tall guys included, as they offer everything from shoes, accessories, clothes, suits, athletic wear and more.
Gift Guide for Thoughtful Father’s Day Gifts for EVERY budget!
DXL Zephyrwood Candle | DXL Zephyrwood Cologne | Robert Graham Skull Socks | Rose Gold Watch | Gold (with leather detail!!) Aviators | Award Winning Dad Graphic Tee | The Incredible Sporty Super Dad Graphic Tee | Reebok Golf Speedwick Polo Shirt | Island Passport Tropical Scene Print Sport Shirt | Reebok Speewick Plaid Stretch Shorts | Nautica StretchRipstop Cotton Cargo Shorts | Skechers Relaxed Fit Bosnia Sandals (Chris said these are SO comfortable!) | Rockport Garett Plaid Toe Oxfords
What I loved is that the shirts all seemed to be a little longer so that we didn’t have to worry about them pulling up as he’s playing with the kids and the comfort level and fit on each item has been incredible (the Island Passport Tropical Shirt actually runs a tad on the looser side).
With rose gold STILL being such a hot color, I had to get some on Chris and these rose gold and leather sunnies, plus the rose gold watch – both a great price and already garnishing compliments on the first day he wore them! – couldn’t be left off my Thoughtful Father’s Day Gifts Guide. There is such a big selection available in store and online for every style, and we really like the style and quality of each piece we’ve tried.
I rounded up items that would be perfect for even the picky guys (ahem, like Chris)… but if you’ve got athletes, those interested in golf or fishing, or the outdoor dad – DXL Big + Tall has items for any father on your list.
If you’re still on the fence about what to order or what sizes to get, grab a gift card or make a date of it and take your man, or the dad in your life, for a shopping trip to a local store! The retail experience is really what DXL is known for as they specialize in big and tall clothing and have fit experts available in store to help empower shoppers to reach for things that make them look and feel their best! This means that you know you’ll walk out feeling great, and so will he… I LOVE that!

Side note, and just to celebrate Chris for Father’s Day, here’s a little look at Skylar in the hospital… and I love watching Chris with the kiddos, he took most of the video, but there are a couple glimpses of him. Which reminds me, I need to take more video of THEM together:
