2019 Gift Guide: Father’s Day Presents

Let's talk about that guy over there... yeah, him. Dad. He's there for you 365/24/7, but on Sunday, Jun 16–Father's Day–he'll be the star of the show. Now let's talk about gifts... and how Dad likes gifts. So, if we do some simple math we come to the conclusion that Dad should probably get a gift on Father's Day. Why don't you be the one who gives it?

Gifts for The Active Dad

IMG_0031.JPG

Dad and his bike are inseparable... but on the off chance that you two decide to lock-up the Schwinn and opt for a walk through the park instead, this “Share the World” tee by Landry Print Co. can help continue to spread the message of two-tire traveling.

Every dad has that go-to cap… you know the one… it’s faded from years of sun, it’s probably got some dried paint on it, and you are definitely embarrassed when he wears it in public. If we just described your dad (and his hat), it’s probably time to pick him up a new cap from Legend Headwear. Made in Cleveland, Ohio, they’re sure to take your legend to the next level!


Presents for The Bookworm

It's nearly noon, so what's for lunch? Beef on weck, garbage plates, city chicken, goetta? Maybe some bakery or a cookie table to top it off. You look confused... not from round these parts, are ya? Brush up on your midwestern lingo with your very own copy of  How To Speak Midwestern from Belt Publishing.

Dad's really smart. He has all these A+ ideas, but sometimes he–like the best of us–gets a touch forgetful. Encourage Dad's brainstorming with a “Really Frickin Good Ideas” notebook by Triple Threat Press. It fits perfectly in a shirt or jeans pocket, so he'll never forget to take it with him.


For the punk dad

il_fullxfull.1458464796_l6s9.jpg

Dad’s closet isn’t just full of black shirts… it’s full of ebony, taupe, charcoal, onyx, and dim gray colored shirts too! So why not add one more with Rocket E3’s “cat punk” shirt? Hand screen printed in Cleveland on comfy Cavas brand shirts, it takes DIY to a whole new level.

We’ve heard them described as “the greatest punk band that nobody knows about” but they can count comedian Chris Gethard and Billy Joe Armstrong from Green Day among their fans. The third album from The Marked Men answers the question, “What would have happened if the Ramones were better at playing their instruments and wrote songs with more than 3 chords”. Ok, that might be an over simplification but if your old man has ever wondered that aloud, Fix My Brain is the answer.


A Little Something for The Barmaster

White+Russian.jpg

 The Dude wasn't a dad, but every dad really seems to want to be The Dude. Take him one step closer to realizing his dream of hanging with Walter and Donny with this “White Russian” Happiest Hour Print by Boundary & Thorn... it really ties the room together.


IMG_0035.JPG

Just as Mommy Dearest lost her marbles over wire hangers, something tells us that Dad wouldn't bee very keen to find water rings on his hard wood surfaces. Save us all the grief and get him a set of marbled wood coasters from Savvie Studio for the bar top... and maybe some Murphy's Oil Soap, too?

 


vscocam-share.jpg

Think back to a prior era, when Don Drapers and Gloria Steinams walked down the street... when conversation pits were all the rage and everyone was burning their mouths on fondue. The Essential Barware print by Sorry Studio would have fit right in. Gift dad one of his own, and garnish with a 2nd Shift Design Co. hanger frame for added finesse.


Goods For The Father with the Finer Things

Screen Shot 2018-06-12 at 11.52.07 AM.png

Whether your dad prefers the half windsor, four-in-hand, or the pratt knot... the one thing we can all agree on is that nobody appreciates getting beat up by their necktie. Windy weather or clear skies, a silver tie bar from Tiny Erica Jewelry will solve any issues of wardrobe misconduct.


IMG_0030.JPG

Fledgeling record collectors and professionals alike feel a bit weak in the knees when they catch a glimpse of the Minimal Record Rack by Prather Team. The portable tabletop rack is a must-have for any listening party or brunch DJing set. 

And, if dad doesn’t quite have enough to fill his new rack, you can pick him up some classic albums or new favorites.

Nicknamed "The boyfriend candle", the Black Process Collection Soy Candle from Triple Threat Press is scented with sweet, spicy, and smoky notes of tobacco and burnt clove. As an added bonus, the wood wick crackles lightly, like a tiny campfire for the indoors... which means that you get to skip the bug spray.


You can find all of the above gifts–plus goods from 45 national vendors–at Threefold Gifts. Visit us at 13339 Madison Ave. in Lakewood, Ohio, Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-6pm

 
For the Record Collector

Record collectors worldwide are celebrating Record Store Day this Saturday, April 13th. While some people show up for the limited edition vinyl, others are just excited that they still have a local, independent record store to shop with. Either way, record lovers love the format for its warm, analog tones, huge artwork, and tactile listening experiences. So, while your special someone is out scoring some special records, why not grab them some gifts to show them that you support their choice of music format?


PRATHER MADE

One of the biggest downsides of owning records is storage. It doesn’t take long for your shelves (or milk crates) to fill up leaving you searching for another solution. Enter Prather Made with their stylish record storage and display options that prove you can have form and function.

MATT HECTORNE

It wouldn’t be Record Store Day without some records! Standing out from the usual filler that rounds out our display record rack, we also have the wonderful third release by Mississippi/Cleveland/Nashville’s own Matt Hectorne.

“With their cooing vocals and slide guitars, songs such as "Only Way Into Your Heart" and "It Don't Matter at All" have a Wilco vibe to them, and the mellow title track possesses a Grateful Dead feel. In Hectorne's talented hands, the songs come across as natural roots rock explorations.”
–Cleveland Scene

Give it a listen on Bandcamp and then stop in to grab a copy of your own.

Gift Guide: For The Naturalist

It looks like you’re thinking really hard about something… oh, gifts for your naturalist buddy, eh? We know the kind: They probably own a Subaru. It’s probably covered in stickers that say something like “I’d rather be camping”, or “Redwoods or bust”. Well, there’s more than just tents and paddle boards to gift your outdoors-y friend. Browse our naturalist gift guide for a bit of help!


herbs-screenprint-large-green-silkscreen-sorry-studio-handmade.jpg

Chances are that your friend has a green thumb… or at least tries to grow a few herbs here and there. If they're the type who’s always mixing up cilantro and parsley then you’ve just found the ideal gift. Sorry Studio’s two-color herbs screen print will never let them forget.

A more fashionably inclined naturalist wears their heart on their sleeve–or in this case, on their finger. The Circle Craft’s golden bronze cast succulent rings are gorgeous additions to any boho mama’s jewelry box.

If you’ve ever heard your friend refer to themself as a “plant mom”- here’s their gift… because not all babies are living, breathing humans.

flower-arrangements-zine-illustration-collage-handmade.png

Because most of our shoppers live in the frozen tundra that is Northeastern Ohio, we know that you’ve got at least one friend who can’t stop talking about “that one time in Costa Rica”. Valley Cruise Press’ Flower Arrangements zine is chock full of fun and flowery collages by Ted Feighan. Now all you’ve gotta do is find a Mai Tai…

seed-paper-greeting-card-letterpress-floral-botanical-handmade.jpg

The coolest part about Triple Threat Press’ plantable letterpress-printed seed paper cards is that when you give a card you also gift a garden! All the recipient needs to do is soak the paper in water until it’s flexible, then plant and water regularly. The gifted gardener could potentially grow Dwarf Godetia, Lemon Mint, Maiden Pinks, Forget-Me-Not, Catchfly, English Daisy, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon, Corn Poppy, and Black Eyed Susan!

rust-belt-arcana-tarot-book.JPG

Whatbetter feeling in life is there than leaving society behind, hanging your hammock in a sun-dappled forest, and diving into a great book? Belt Publishing’s Rust Belt Arcana by Matt Stansberry, illustrated by David Wilson, could be exactly the read that you’re looking for. It’s part nature writing, part divination, and altogether a natural history of the Midwest as told through the time-tested structure of the tarot.

Gift Guide: Housewarming Gifts for First-Time Homeowners

Buying a house is a huge deal. It's one of the largest purchases that a person can make, so surely you can shell-out a few bucks when your friends invite you over to see their new place! But don't sweat it... gifting doesn't have to be hard or expensive because we've made few gift recommendations for all types of budgets. We'll even  gift wrap your purchase if you ask really nicely.

After all of the paperwork–so, SO much paperwork–is said and done, they give you the keys to your house... but wouldn't it be so much more gratifying if those keys came attached to a "Dream House" keychain by Valley Cruise Press?


IMG_0258.JPG

They say that a house isn't a home without a dog. Who's "they"? We never quite figured that out... but if it's true, your new homeowners are gonna need this "Bulldog" print by Landry Print Co. 

IMG_0257.JPG

What's missing from every new home? Food. The cupboards are bare, so let's go shopping! Make your list with the "Groceries + Things" notepad by Allie Biddle. It even has a magnet attached to the back for easy front-of-fridge storage.

IMG_0250.JPG

Keeping plants at home is scientifically proven to improve your quality of life! Not only do plants produce oxygen and purify the air in your space, but people who care for plants are more likely to also show care for others. Give the gift of a happy, healthy space with an air plant and matching plant hanger by Savvie Studio.

IMG_0255.JPG

A house becomes more home-y when you can cuddle on the couch with a great quilt. The "Rise" throw by DittoHouse. is a high-quality, USA-knit blanket made with 80% recycled cotton fiber, so it'll make your heart happy, too! Find a place for it on the back of your couch, in your favorite reading chair, or covering the top of your bed.

What says "welcome" better than a vase full of wildflowers? Pick a few blooms for your favorite first-time homeowners, then plant them in a large "Geo" vase by Lauren H-B Studio.

While leather wallets are standard, we find the Tri Fold wallet from Forest City Portage to be a great animal and earth-friendly alternative! Made with durable, repurposed materials like sailcloth, these things are practically bulletproof.

Gift Guide: Father's Day Cards

Father's Day is June 17. That's two weeks away... no, less than two weeks! Our love of stationery makes us particularly helpful this time of year, because we know that you don't have a card yet. Well, do you? We didn't think so.


For the dad who also happens to be your best friend:

Words can't describe how great it is when your BFF also happens to be the source of your second X or Y chromosome... but  Triple Threat Press  does a pretty good job of summing it up.
