This June, you’ll find Dad on a park bench, cheering at the baseball game in a stadium seat, or laying back in a poolside lounger. No matter where Dad chills this summer, be sure he is squint and burn-free with a pair of shades and SPF for Father’s Day. Pick a classic shape, like an aviator or wayfarer for extra cool, like these TOMS Windward Polarized Sunglasses ($149), which also double the amount of good you do on this day, since for every pair of sunglasses purchased, TOMS will provide aid to someone with vision impairments. A little fashion detail is added to each pair with TOM’s signature blue and white stripes at the tips.
Protect him from sun damage with a powerful SPF; we like the VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70 ($40-$57 for the 3 oz or 6.25 oz), as it’s perfect as an all-terrain, all-activity carryall, goes on lightweight enough to even be rubbed into the hair to prevent scalp burn. Show Dad how pragmatic, and caring you are with these two gift categories that will keep on giving, all summer of 2013 long!
