I spend a fair amount of time in the Men’s world at Nordstrom. Helping men look as young and hip as their better halves is a passion of mine. As a VIP Personal Stylist, I have the inside scoop on the best brands that fit well and deliver style & value. I’ve chosen 15 tried and true Father’s Day gifts that will surprise and delight your favorite guys!
Women often tell me that their man won’t listen to them or try anything new. However guys are usually open minded to a professional personal shopper (even though their wives have been hinting the same messages). After a few minutes, they’re having fun trying new jeans and everything I bring to their curated fitting room. Who doesn’t love the attention a great pair of jeans (in their correct size) can do to make them look and feel their very best, right?!
If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, surprise your man with my RoseKnows personalized VIP one hour (or less) styling appointment. Virtual Father’s Day gifting appointments also available. You’ll love how he looks too!
*Thanks for reading and supporting my small biz! I haven’t been paid to promote any of the items on this list. My gift guides are all mine – sharing what I love, what I show my personal clients and what I have purchased for my own guy! Father’s Day is June 19th so I hope you find a thing or two to gift your favorite men, xo rose
I’ve learned if you don’t give him the tools to keep his skin soft and moisturized, he’ll use yours!!

MIZZEN + MAIN SHIRTS
Mizzen + Main was one of the first to introduce this revolutionary performance tech fabric in their dress shirt collection. No exaggeration, all men love these tech fabric shirts for a few reasons. One, they feel great on your skin – soft and silky. Two, throw them in the washer and dryer, no ironing required. Three, they have a flattering athletic fit so they aren’t loose or baggy. Four, they’re moisture wicking so no embarrassing pit stains! I’ve sold hundreds over the years to every age guy from 16 to age 75. Check out a few of my favs:
AVENTUS BY CREED
New fragrances are always being released but Aventus by Creed has been a tried and true favorite! It’s a bit of a splurge but is a long lasting scent. This masculine scent has a cult following, its really special. Chanel Bleu is a close runner up and smells so sexy too! More mens fragrance here.
My husband probably wears shorts more than most guys. Between golfing and his new casual lifestyle, he should have a nice assortment. However as I was sharing on my IG stories, he likes a good purge on a regular basis. So last week when the temp was 80, we were invited to a backyard dinner. Literally he had no shorts to wear! As a professional shopper, that was an embarrassing moment lol. I quickly fixed that and brought home several for him to try. He looked so good in the Peter Millar that we bought 4 colors. The Bedford stretch twill style and the Salem Course Performance shorts are cut for a modern fit and run on the small side. Darin went up a size in both styles.

GAS – POWERED PIZZA OVEN
Making your own perfect pizza is a gift you’ll both enjoy! Bonus: He’ll love all the praise for making the best pizzas on the block!
NEW SUMMER JEANS
A great pair of light wash jeans like these soft gray pair from Fidelity Denim are a must! There are times when blue jeans are too casual but these are just right! These will take him all thru summer and beyond. For a casual dinner out, try a long sleeve breezy linen shirt like this one here. Stylist tip: To avoid looking stiff, always roll and push up those sleeves!
CHROME SHAVER & BRUSH SET
For the distinguished man! This one will actually look great sitting on your master bath counter.
MASSAGE ROLLER BUNDLE
Here is another gift that is for HIM but lets face it, its for you too (insert wink emoji here).
A nice reversible belt like this one will last for years! I also really like this new light color here. It’s the perfect designer accessory that will give him that luxe finishing touch! Remember to always go up 2 sizes higher than his pant size when purchasing belts. More Feragamo belts here.
NEW SWIM TRUNKS
The shorter swim trunks are trending and look hot on a tan toned body. I’ve linked 7″ rise trunks and a few longer styles too for the tall guys out there!
BOSE SPORT EARBUDS
This gift will inspire your guy or Dad to get outside go for a hike (or whatever he likes to do)! Any activity is more fun while listening to his favorite music or podcast!
Cole Haan Sneaks
Wear this sneaker with casual shorts or business casual with jeans and a blazer. Either way, it’s a comfortable sneaker that all guys love.
