Father’s Day Gift Guide – 2024

Sharing allll of Braun’s favorites with you for this gift guide! I separated them out to outdoors, leisure, tech, and athlete this year for added convenience, don’t let that stop you from looking at all of them though haha. Check out last year’s gift guide HERE.

Stanley Cooler – When Stanley launched these I was giddy. They hold so much and keep things cold for a long time. It’s super easy to carry because of the backpack. It has mesh pockets on the outside that fit quite a bit, a smaller zipper pocket, and a metal frame so you don’t have to hold the large opening while getting things out because it stays open!

Yeti Cooler – The strap on this one is a game changer. We love our Yeti coolers. Keeps things cold for DAYS. Perfect for boating, camping, sports games, etc.

Top Notch Jerky – This is the best jerky ever and my entire family is OBSESSED. We love the original, teriyaki, and hot + sweet. We love the wagon wheels, but the ranch cut is great too. Code TARA saves you 10% and you get free shipping on orders over $50!

Grilling Apron – If you’ve got a guy that loves grilling, this apron is perfect. Tons of pockets and a heavy duty canvas!

Hammock – We got these last summer and would take them up to the mountains to lounge on, they’re super great!

Yeti Camping Chair – Braun is bougie. I’m NGL.. but these chairs make him SO HAPPY!!! He tells me how much he loves them during every single soccer game. Haha 

Jet Boil – Maybe its because we are heading backpacking this week, but these are a must.. you can boil water with them SO FAST. Perfect for meals, coffee, whatever.. they pack down super small too.

Pocket Knife – I don’t even want to know how many of these Braun has bought over his lifetime, but I do know he has one on him alllll the time. 

Blackstone Grill – This was a Father’s Day WIN last year. Braun has loved using it and it has so many functions. We ended up getting the one with the 2 air fryer baskets + warming station for an all in one cooking experience, but you could also get the one without the air fryers! 

Here’s all the Blackstone accessories he’s bought since getting it:

  1. Grill Press
  2. Grill Caddy
  3. Grill Mat
  4. Wind Grill Guard
  5. Squeeze Bottles
  6. Seasoning Shakers
  7. Basting Cover

Travel Blackstone – Braun loves his big Blackstone so much we thought this little tailgater would be nice for camping.. we took it to the mountains a few times last summer, camping, and to our family reunion and it was great for all of it! Folds up like a briefcase. 

AI Rangefinder – This is the first of its kind AI rangefinder. There’s sensors that connect so you can track your shots + game. Super cool!

AirMax 270 – Braun wears these 5 out of the 7 days on the week. I love this new color he has.

Melin Hat – Pretty much the only baseball caps Braun wears. Comes in 16 colors.

Lululemon Swim Trunks – He loves these swimsuits! Super lightweight .. loves the 5” length. He loves the Fair Harbor ones as well. Code TARA20 should work on their site. They’ve got tons of different lengths + pattern options. Braun loves the liner that they have in them.

Lululemon Shorts – Who wears short shorts?! Braun wears short shorts.. he has these on repeat lately. He loves the 5” but they do have a 7” as well. 

Hoka Trail Shoes – These were the shoes Braun got for the grand canyon.. they require no breaking in. Comfy from day 1!

Lululemon Shirt – Braun loves the new fit of these shirts.. they are more boxy than previous ones. He’s probably bought 10 lately!! 

Theragun – This really helps to loosen up those muscles and knots. We both like the mini one too because it’s compact enough to bring along anywhere. They just launched a new mini one that is 20% smaller + lighter. It’s also super quiet too!

Chirp Wheels – We love the set and we love this single one. This one with the bumps goes deeper and would be a great option if you just buy 1.

Domedock – Braun originally bought this and I had to get them for our boys as well. They make it so you can stack all of your hats up to store easily.

Phillips Trimmer – One of the top sellers of 2022 + 2023 and for good reason! This bad boy is amazing at getting all the hair and a crisp line. I also use it to cute my boys’ hair, there’s tons of attachments that come with it.

Yurman Silver Chain – Braun bought about a year ago and loves the quality. He got the 20’’ and wishes he would have gotten the 22’’.

Hatch Restore – I’ve been using this for quite some time now and LOVE it. It has a lot of functions, but my favorite is the sound machine and the light alarm. It gradually gets brighter and brighter to wake you up slowly.

Karst Notebook – Have you ever written on stone paper? It’s the most luxurious writing experience!! Pair it with a TUL pen and it’s Brauns favorite writing experience! 

Top 1 Percenter Planner – Braun created a planner!!! It’s been something he’s wanted to do for YEARS.  I’m so proud of him. It is all about getting into good habits so you can be in the top 1% in all the areas of your life!! 

Sleep Crown – If you want to level up your sleep game, this is the way to go. It’s a holy grail product for Braun and I! Blocks sound, light, and is the comfiest thing ever. Get the regular size one! Both Braun and I have them and I will never be the same.

Maui Jim Sunglasses – Braun’s favorite sunglasses!

Purple Pillow – You’ll notice on here that I have a lot of stuff that Braun uses to sleep, this pillow is one of them. Actually, our whole fam uses them. They’re great!

O’Keefe’s Lip Repair – I originally bought this for myself and Braun took it immediately haha. It’s not too thick so you can wear it during the day, but it does wonder for overnight too.

The books below are ones that have made a HUGE impact on who Braun is as a father:

Coconu – I don’t know about you, but what’s better than the gift of lube? If you haven’t tried this, it’s an all natural lube that is AMAZING. I don’t just use it for its initial purpose, but use it on dry skin, I keep it in my pool bag for sunburns, use on my leather camera strap, you name it! Butttt your husband will probably only care about its intended use haha. Use code TARA for 15% off! I prefer the oil based, but you can get a combo pack to see which one you like best.

Tommy John Pajamas – The only pajamas that Braun will wear. His favorite are the second skin ones! He also loves the second skin underwear.

Jack Black Body Lotion – Smells manly (not too strong though.. he still wears cologne) and Braun has bought it for years.

Stanley Cups – I know a lot of men who are totally against the stanley tumblers.. I don’t know why because it would literally change their life haha. BUT, this is a stanley CUP, no lid but perfect to keep their drink cold around the house. It’s marketed as a beer cup, so if that’s his thing go for it! But would def work with water or soda haha. It fits a cold Dr. Pepper PERFECTLY. It’s all he drinks out of at home.

Lululemon Slides – I wear these CONSTANTLY and Braun loves them too. Great to slip on and go!

Anker Charging Cable – Braun’s biggest pet peeve is when people steal his chargers.. so now he has about 10 of them that I’m sure will disappear over the next few months. haha These are our faves! They have both USB-C and LIGHTING.

Oura Ring – Don’t get me wrong, I loved my apple watch for a long time and it was so cool that it could track my sleep, but being able to just wear a ring instead of a watch is far better. The oura ring will also track activity + heart rate during the day. We both wear them every day. Technology is so cool!

Groove Life Belt – We got there belts a few months ago and Braun loves them. They’re magnetic so you adjust them once and that’s it. The quality is amazing and super durable. They also have some really cool wallets. Code GLTARA saves you 30% sitewide!

Motorola SOS Satellite Tracker – Braun bought one of these GPS trackers for when he’s being outdoorsy years ago but it cost a lot more than this one.. he was excited to see they made this! Could be a great option for the big Grand Canyon day! 

Bose Earbuds – I’ve been so impressed by these! Don’t get me wrong, I’m an Apple girl through and through, but the AirPods made my ears hurt after a while and I wanted something that was more comfortable. These clip onto your ear and stay in place so well. I like that I can hear what’s going on around me (don’t worry no one can hear what you’re listening to). Braun loves them too!

Airpod Max – They’re so nice for on the airplane and sync to everything so seamlessly. If you’re buying the headphones, ya need a good case! Genuine leather and comes in a few different colors. Both Braun and I have one!

Airfly – If your partner is like Braun and travels all. the. time then they will LOVE this. It connects to your airplane tv and becomes a bluetooth adapter for your headphones. This way you can watch the shows they offer.. I swear they always have good ones!

Car Phone Mount – Braun tried like 10 different phone mounts before landing on this one as the winner!

Andar – You guys know my love for Andar products. You can’t go wrong with any of their wallets, cases, or bags. Braun loves the Apollo wallet, Macbook cover, and AirPod case!

Air Tag – These are such a versatile gift! Braun has them all over the place, in his luggage, golf bag, etc. It’s great. There’re on sale too. THIS is the holder he likes to use!

Tech Pouch – Braun is an extremely organized guy and this bag has a space for allll the cords + tech stuff!

Anker Portable Charger – We swear by these. They have enough power to charge a laptop and charge it so dang quick. Braun and I always have these handy around the house because we don’t like being tied to an outlet! You can find more anker favorites HERE.

Peak System Phone Case– This is awesome! The case a square on the back that attaches into all of their products. They have car mounts, bike mounts(we use these on our bikes!), motorcycle mounts, wallets, tripods, wall mounts, charging stands… I’m telling you this thing is COOL.  Braun has used it for years and loves it. The bike mount is super sturdy when riding and doesn’t go anywhere.

Gun Safe – If you own one, it’s important to keep it locked away SAFELY. This has been the best and Braun is obsessed with it. It mounts to the back of your nightstand and has a passcode or fingerprint opening option. I know a lot of you have gotten it as well and love it!

Need a quick gift from the kids? These are a fave of mine! So simple, captures your kids personality and comes from the heart. I’ve added these to the Father’s Day gift guide the last couple of years and you guys have loved them. ENJOY!!

Another one of Braun’s favorite gifts that we surprised him with was a home video.. So many of you still ask me about it! It’s all linked up in this blog post.. We love watching it still to this day! Braun absolutely loved it and I would recommend this to any of you looking for an awesome gift. It’s a great way to capture your kids at the ages they are now and preserve a little bit of what life is like.
