www.bloomingdales.com


Thor, the new whiskey inspired by Nordic gods, Vikings and general Scottish badassery: Yes. $199, www.highlandpark.co.uk

The Glenlivet 18 Years of Age is the perfect Father’s Day scotch: Nice enough to give as a gift,
but not so nice that he won’t pour you a glass. $74, www.theglenlivet.com


These onesies make diaper duty a little easier. $48 (set of two), www.gilt.com/kids


After all these years, isn’t it about time someone bought him a bike? C. Wonder’s single-speed  boasts a classic  look and comfy seat. $249, www.cwonder.com

Don’t run this one by mom: La-Z-Boy’s new XZIPIT recliner features a removable panel so he can
match his gigantic chair to the sporting season. $889, www.lazboy.com


Kitsch alert! Because sometimes, you’ve gotta get him a bottle-opening universal remote control. Add a “No. 1 Dad” mug at your own risk. $17, www.brookstone.com
