What to buy for your Father for Father's Day

Is it just me, or does it feel like #NationalBestFriendDay rolls around more than once a year? I thought these things were a once-a-year kind of deal, but I keep finding myself sifting through my photo collection for a #tbt #NationalBestFriendDay picture of me and my best friend (tbh, I'm running out). 

Well, a holiday that is sure to only roll around once a year is Father's Day, this year falling on Sunday, June 21. Though its only once a year, I have to say that it often slips my mind (thank goodness for cell phones and smart calendars!). 

Luckily, I and the other managers at The Harvard Shop have put together a quick guide of the perfect gifts to get for your dad, situated at all of the different price points. You can't go wrong with any gift from THS--even we in the office think to ourselves, "if we wear a Harvard t-shirt, does it help us channel all of the intellect that has passed through Harvard's gates to finish that god-awful statistics problem set?"

Also, order your gift by June 17 to get your order by Father's Day!

Does it get any more basic than a Harvard Dad t-shirt? I don't know about your dad, but mine loves wearing college t-shirts and sweatshirts, to the point that my mom has to deliberately intercept my dad's morning outfit pickings to suggest, "what about that non-collegiate sweater you have?" 

Oops, already got this Harvard Adjustable H Hat for dad! He's a big fan of hats, especially because he's an avid golf enthusiast. This hat lets him keep cool and keep his Harvard pride up, on or off the green. 

A new addition, this hat is inspired. It meshes the rugged look with the clean prep look that Harvard encapsulates. The H 1636 Hat is cross between your rebellious college student and the polished Harvard prep--the perfect intersection that makes for an awesome Father's Day gift. 

I'm alllllll about the bowties. I always prefer bowties over ties (come on, they're so cute!), and this Harvard Crest Striped Bowtie has got it going on. Get it for dad, before they run out!

California can get chilly, or so my dad says (after having lived through 2 Cambridge summers, I can only scoff when my parents say they were chilly when the weather dropped to 60 degrees). He's a big fan of these Harvard Sweatpants. 

For Christmas, I got my dad this Harvard Shop x Vineyard Vines collaboration, limited time only Vineyard Vines Harvard Belt. He loves it, and loves tucking his shirts in to expose the aesthetic of the belt. I'm a proud daughter. :)

As the leading coffee table book documenting the entire year through the eyes and lenses of Harvard students, Life in Crimson provides readers with a snapshot in to the journey through Harvard. 

Vineyard Vines is what I immediately think about when I think "east coast prep." Whether your dad grew up at Horace Mann or chillin' on the streets of the website, dad's sure to rock this awesome tie, wherever he goes. Need a challenge: match your socks with your tie!"
