Father's Day Gift Guide: What dad wants

The point is, Father's Day is June 17, and you need help.



This candle from f.s.c. barber smells like wood and is snuggled into a reusable shatterproof camper’s cup — so think more fiery wax, less scented candle. $55, www.freemanssportingclub.com



Modeled after binoculars found in an old French naval shipyard, this tripod pair from Restoration Hardware is the perfect dad mix of spy toy, history and gadget. $2,495, www.restorationhardware.com



He gets the Ninjabread Men cookies. You get the cutters. Everyone gets kicked in the face and jumps over couches for old time’s sake. $12, www.unique-vintage.com

match his gigantic chair to the sporting season. $889, www.lazboy.com
