Travel Kits And Risottieras: 7 Great Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is June 19. Are you ready? We can help!

We asked some of our favorite dads to test out a bunch of ideas for this Father’s Day season. Here’s what they loved.

Lagostina Risottiera

Got a dad who loves to cook? Then treat him to this beautiful Italian-made Risottiera, which is specially designed to make perfect risotto. “I tried it with a Parmesan mushroom risotto recipe,” says Garry Marquiss, a friend of Your Teen . “The pan is absolutely beautiful, very well made, and the risotto was great, if I don’t say so myself.”  $199.99


If the dad in your life is a fan of the Swiss Army knife, then he’s going to love KeySmart. “This Swiss-style, minimalist key holder makes it easy to store your keys. When you need a key, just slide it out. My dad loves it,” says Your Teen’s Brooke Siegler. Plus, it’s smaller than a pack of gum. $19.98

Revamp dad’s sock drawer and make a difference in one fell swoop with these organic cotton socks. “These are bright and comfortable,” says Rick Taylor, husband of Your Teen’s Eca Taylor. Plus, for every pair sold, Conscious Step donates 50 percent to a charity, including, Action Against Hunger, and UNAIDS. $54.95

Practical, but fun, and with a range of up to 35 miles, the Motorola Talkabout is a perfect Father’s Day gift for the active outdoorsman, says Your Teen videographer Ralph Febbo. “The range is amazing, and I love the built in flashlight!” $89.99

The perfect gift for the dad with the record collection gathering dust in a corner of the basement. “What a great way for dads to show off their vinyl collections to their teens,” says Scott Stettin, husband of Your Teen art director Meredith Pangrace. $79.73

Now dad can rest easy knowing that his phone will be safe at the pool or beach this summer. “I immersed the empty case in water for about three hours and found it to be dry after inspection,” says Rick Taylor, husband of Your Teen’s Eca Taylor. “I’d recommend it for vacations and activities near water.” $89.95

Upgrade dad’s travel gear with The Baxter Travel Kit, a TSA-approved bag with moisturizer, after shave, face wash, shampoo, and more. “I really enjoyed the bag, which comes in many colors. And you can also add your own products to personalize the kit,” says Your Teen’s  Brooke Siegler . $50.00
