Cel­e­brate the dads and grads in your life!

NEAT FEET

Put a lit­tle prep in his step with Sperry Men’s Cus­tom­iz­a­ble Au­then­tic Orig­i­nal 2- Eye Boat Shoes. These mocs can be per­son­al­ized from the sole up. Choose the color of each com­po­nent, add ini­tials (if he’s into that), and or­der a few weeks in ad­vance to en­sure de­liv­ery by Dad’s Day. $120, sperry.com

BLADE STUNNERS

Dad’s chop­ping game will be on point with a Misen Essen­tials Knife Set in blue. The stain­less-steel trio in­cludes an 8-inch chef’s knife, a 10-inch ser­rated knife, and a 3-inch par­ing knife. $130, misen.co

SKIN SAVERS

Give the gift of self-care (dressed in badass pack­ag­ing) with Tri­umph & Dis­as­ter Logic Toner and Rock & Roll Sui­cide Face Scrub. They’re full of nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents like witch hazel and green clay, a.k.a. kryp­tonite for black­heads. $34 each, tri­umphand­dis­as­ter.us

TOP-NOTCH TAP

A stain­less-steel or cop­per-fin­ished Growler werks ukeg will keep Pop’s fa­vorite suds fresh for up to two weeks via a CO2 car­tridge. Bonus: The tap han­dle is mono­grammable. From $149 each, markand­gra­ham.com

CARRY ON

He’ll love how prac­ti­cal and light­weight the 100 per­cent wa­ter­proof Rains Week­end Bag is; you’ll love how you never have to be em­bar­rassed by his ratty back­pack again. $95 (shown in blue), us.rains.com

TAKE NOTE

These bold-hue MOMA De­sign Store Let­ter Boards are a stylish up­grade from the blackand-white mod­els all over In­sta­gram. From $50 each, store.moma.org

STYLIST BY MAIL

With all those in­ter­views com­ing up, a Trunk Club Trunk gift card is a new-grad no-brainer. Stylists pick items based on a de­tailed ques­tion­naire, and re­cip­i­ents are charged for what they keep from the pack­age. Prices vary, plus a $25 styling fee is cred­ited to­ward pur­chases; trunk­club.com

TECH SUP­PORT

Ré­sumé writ­ing can be down­right daunt­ing, but the su­per-thin Google Pix­el­book lap­top with its 10-hour bat­tery and built-in Google As­sis­tant can help. Just think how great your grad’s port­fo­lio (and Net­flix se­lec­tions) will look on the touch screen. From $999, store.google.com

FRESH LINENS

Who wouldn’t want a bed­ding up­grade af­ter that ex­tra-long twin non­sense? With a Brook­li­nen Clas­sic Hard­core Sheet Bundle, which in­cludes a mix-and­match sheet set, pil­low­cases, and a du­vet, your for­mer stu­dent will be all set. From $168 for sim­i­lar styles, brook­li­nen.com

WHIZ KID

For the price, you’d be hard-pressed to find a bet­ter first-apart­ment ap­pli­ance than the Proctor Silex Per­sonal Glass Blender, which has a tiny coun­ter­top foot­print and a sturdy glass pitcher. Hope­fully it’ll make more smooth­ies than mar­gar­i­tas. $25, ama­zon.com

TIME CAP­SULE

The hand­crafted wooden Boom­box Mem­ory Box is a heart­felt keep­sake for the newly diploma’d. DIY one by hav­ing friends and fam­ily hand­write well-wishes on blank cards. Or pay more for a be­spoke card de­sign, print­ing, and gift wrap­ping by the Boom­box team. From $100 (shown in Blue Chevron), boom­boxgifts.com
