This Father’s Day, give the dads on your list the gift of great design. The Dwell Store’s assortment of Father’s Day gifts includes well-designed games, sophisticated personal accessories, and more items that every father will love. Explore our top picks here, and view the full gift collection at the Dwell Store.

Innovative, wall-mounted bike storage solution

If Dad is a cyclist, look no further than the Clug Clip for a perfect Father’s Day gift. The Clug Bike Rack is an innovative storage solution for hanging bicycles or for supporting a bike on a floor without a kickstand. The Clug is nearly invisible when mounted on a wall, and is designed not only for minimalists who want to avoid the clunky look of a bicycle rack as well as people with limited space for bike storage. The Clug is available in three different sizes that can accommodate road bicycles, hybrid bicycles, and mountain bicycles.

Compact portable bluetooth spealers

The Sound1 Speakers are a small audio solution that Dad can take on the go. Created by Korean design house cloudandco for 11+, the speakers combine minimalist styling with the freedom of wireless listening. The speakers deliver clear, crisp stereo sound throughout the room and pair with Bluetooth-enabled portable devices and computers.

handmade teak toolbox

For dads who are handy, appreciate fine woodworking, or need a storage solution, the Abner Teak Toolbox makes an excellent gift. Designed by Aaron Poritz, the toolbox is crafted entirely in teak, including the comb joints that hold the box together. Named after his grandfather—who taught Aaron woodworking as a child—the Abner toolbox includes a bottom tool compartment, inset tray, and a self-contained lid.

Cast iron bottle opener in shape of tool

Designed to look like a real hammer, this bottle opener is hand-forged in the traditional Nambu Tekki cast iron method. First made in the mid 17th century in Japan, nambu tekki is a celebrated Japanese craft, still popular today. The black color of the bottle opener is derived from a lacquer glaze called urushi, which craftsmen use to prevent rusting on the iron pieces.

Watch with pleats inspired by folded paper

The Plicate Analog Watch from Nava Design is an inspired wristwatch, modeled after the pleats found in folder paper fans. A monochrome design, the watch strap is modeled after the watch case not only in color, but also in the pleated design. This thoughtful detail in the watch strap allows air to flow between the band and the arm of the wearer, which keeps the watch comfortable and prevents dirt from building up.

Silver radio inspired by traditional world receivers

With throwback looks and simple features, the WorldRadio from Geneva has a retro-inspired appearance that is met with necessary modern advances that Dad will love. A contemporary version of the traditional world receiver, the WorldRadio can broadcast all radio stations, including those not found on FM and digital radio. By using the WorldRadio’s built-in wireless Bluetooth receiver and a compatible device—an iPhone or tablet, for example—the radio can broadcast all available Internet stations, greatly increasing the quantity of available programs.

Lounge chair made of teak, fabric, and steel

Give Dad the gift of relaxation this Father’s Day. From Skargaarden, the H55 Easy Chair is crafted in teak, fabric, and stainless steel. The chair features an adjustable frame that can be raised or lowered to create Dad’s desired level of lounging. The chair frame can be oiled once a year to retain the rich teak color, or left alone to develop a silvery grey patina over time.

7 / 10
Fire basket made of oxidized steel

Update Dad’s outdoor space with the Steel Fire Basket from Norm Architects and Menu. The Fire Basket calls to mind the allure of a bonfire and the inviting look and feel of a fireplace. Made of oxidized steel, the basket is sturdy and resilient, and is meant to take on a rich patina over time. The basket is designed to hold firewood and is set atop three legs, elevating the fire from the ground and containing the charred logs for easy cleanup.

Table lamp with convenient storage cup

For Dad’s office, the Cup Table Lamp is an unexpected multitasker. In addition to its primary function as a dimmable LED lamp, the aptly named light includes a storage cup at the base of the lamp for pens, pencils, or other knickknacks. 

9 / 10
Domino set made from cast concrete

Give Dad a classic game with a cool upgrade this Father’s Day. The Bare Bones Domino Set is cast from concrete, giving the classic game a fabricated enhancement. Completely rethought from traditional dominoes, this grainy set features an angled shape, subtle numbering system, and a weightiness that gives the dominoes an undeniably substantial quality. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York, the Bare Bones Domino Set is as much a work of art as it is a table game.

Innovative, wall-mounted bike storage solution

If Dad is a cyclist, look no further than the Clug Clip for a perfect Father’s Day gift.
