Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is coming up on June 17th and rather than settling for another boring tie or pair of fancy socks, get the dad in your life something that will really wow him!  I went on CBS LA’s KCAL9 to share my Father’s Day gift guide in hopes it makes your hunt for the perfect dad gift just a little easier. Check out the products I featured below or watch the full segment by visiting the On Air page.

The Langham Huntington Hotel, Pasadena

If you’re looking for the perfect staycation to celebrate Father’s Day, head to The Langham Hotel in Pasadena. They have several dining options including a Chef’s Market Brunch at The Royce and a special Dim Sum Brunch at The Terrace with interactive stations. There’s also a Daddy & Me Chocolate Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge. Then while the kids hit the pool, send dad to the spa to get pampered with their relaxing men’s treatments like a Bourbon Pedicure or deep tissue massage.


Bolthouse Farms’ Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed is the quintessential way to kick off Father’s Day morning. Bolthouse Farms has the perfect recipes for a delicious, plant-based breakfast in bed using their non-dairy Plant Protein Milk. It’s made with 10 grams of pea protein versus 1 gram in almond milk and has 50% more calcium than dairy milk but offers the same creamy, delicious flavor. It’s vegan, non-GMO, contains no nuts, soy or dairy and can be used in all the same ways as traditional milk. For dad’s breakfast, I used it in his iced coffee, cereal, and even used it in this recipe for chocolate chip/banana muffins from The Foodie Physician. Find Bolthouse Farms Plant Protein Milk in the refrigerated dairy section at Ralphs.



Next up I have a great gift for the handy dads out there. DIY projects inevitably mean DIY messes and whether it’s paint or engine grease, cleaning up can be a challenge. Make dad’s life easier with SpillFix 2-in-1. SpillFix is completely safe and organic, but makes the toughest spills easy to sweep, not mop, up. The secret is in the special absorbency power of coir, made from sustainable, earth-friendly coconut husk.




This is a really cool innovation for the beer-loving dad. Fizzics turns any canned or bottled beer into the fresh taste of draft poured straight from the tap. Patented technology creates a rich, smooth, creamy head on any type of beer so you get that full-bodied flavor of a draft beer. Fizzics only uses 4 AA batteries so dad can enjoy draft beer anytime, anywhere!


AZIO Retro Classic Keyboard

The AZIO Retro Classic is the first luxury keyboard inspired by the vintage typewriter and crafted with modern features. It has backlit keys, works on both Mac and Windows platforms, and is available in four styles. They are all made of genuine leather or wood and a chrome or matte frame so you can choose one that best matches dad’s style. AZIO also has a Bluetooth edition for wireless connectivity.


DrinKup Smart Water Bottle

Busy dads tend to forget to drink water throughout the day, so help keep him hydrated with DrinKup. It’s a smart water bottle that will remind dad when it’s time for him to drink more water. Through an app and the smart lid, DrinKup recommends the appropriate water intake needs according to dad’s height, weight and daily activities. The bottle also detects the water temperature and provides a freshness check, reminding you when the water has gone stale.
