With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to celebrate dear old Dad.

As the saying goes, the way to his heart is through his stomach, so why not honor him with wings from Kansas City’s oldest bar and grill, The Peanut ($36-$179)?  Peanutwings.com can ship the fully-cooked, frozen wings nationwide and they come complete with dipping sauce and extra wing sauce.

For a relaxing gift with a masculine touch, try a treatment from The Gents Place. Not just your traditional barbershop, The Gents Place offers styling services, and many of them come with an old fashioned hot towel shave (from $45). Your guy can maintain his look at home with the 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave starter kit ($25), which contains The Art of Shaving’s Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After-Shave Balm and a trial size Badger Shaving Brush.

For the savvy sock enthusiast, the Sock of the Month Club ($120) from Sock 101 is sure to impress. Each month, a new pair is shipped directly to the man you love. We’re especially fond of the company’s latest arrivals, like The Monroe and The Bradford. Too many socks for your guy? The local company is also offering 3 different sock packages for 3 different types of dads. Check out the offerings at www.sock101.com.

For the man on the go, a slip-on sneaker is the perfect accessory, offering easy off and on for a day of business travel or a day at the pool. We love the colorful options by 1901 ($69.95, from Nordstrom).
