Big Daddy: Father's Day
Gift Guide

by Melissa Goldstein
While they may sometimes appear to be the same--when they fall asleep on the couch while watching the US Open, say, or when they're trying on gray New Balance sneakers--we know that no two dads are the same. (Just look at My Two Dads.) So we've put together a personality-based gift guide designed to wow fathers of every stripe: from the jet-set sort, who hop a plane to London at a moment's notice and never seem to have a worthy umbrella, to the tech-savvy type, persistently in quest of the latest greatest headphones. We've covered the intellectual, whose appreciation for a well-hewn journal knows no bounds. And what round-up would be complete without a nod to the leisure-lover (artsy travel backgammon set anyone?) and the culinary savant (that Kiss the Chef apron needs to be retired for something a bit more distinguished). Read on for the buys that are guaranteed to make you the favorite child--even if he can't come right out and say so. dh-fathers-day-titles-01
