He’s the one who pushed you to run a little longer, a little faster, and the one who dusted off and doctored those strawberries on your knees. He’s Dad. With Father’s Day on Sunday, June 15, take a moment to find a way to honor the first man in your life. Our friends at Breed & Co. (718 W. 29th St., Austin, Texas) offer a diverse mix of gifts for dads. From rugged tools and equipment to shave cream or gear for the grill, they’ve got you covered.

These men’s skin care and shaving products promise real ingredients, with the right blend of botanicals and herbs, like eucalyptus, shea butter, macadamia nut oil, and jojoba oil.

Two brothers ventured out together to create American-made textile products. Blake and Bryce Leggett take pride in their products’ looks but also functionality. All of their items are handmade, and the company is headquartered in Eden, Texas, a small town northwest of Austin.

Govino Go Anywhere Beer Glass (box of four) $16

Touted as the “go anywhere” beer glass, it’s really not made of glass. It’s constructed of BPA-free plastic, and at 16 ounces is perfect for any pour — especially in the classic pilsner shape.

Gerber Multi-Plier 400 Compact Sport $48

With its needle nose pliers and 11 other carefully selected features, the MP400 Compact Sport belongs to the series of one-handed opening Gerber multi-tools made popular thanks to their fluid, effortless one-hand action. The stainless steel multi-tool contains a combination serrated and fine edge blade. It holds a Phillips screwdriver, three separate sizes of flat heads, a file, and a can and bottle opener, all of which lock in place for safe application.

This all-purpose leather glove is suitable for just about any task — driving, carpentry, yard work, or power tools.

Stanley 30’ Fat Max Tape Rule $27

Helping you hang your next piece of art or repair the fence will be a little more efficient with this measuring tape. For instance, the tape shows stud center markings to simplify framing jobs. It also features a wide blade for easy readability and a top-forward lock.

Offering a quick and easy conversion, this light has a dual function — flexible, hands-free light or standard flashlight. It includes a 17-inch flexible attachment.

Craftsman 17-inch Tool Box $16

Craftsman’s portable, plastic hand box organizes commonly used tools and supplies. The lightweight plastic makes it easy to carry but is durable and resists scratching.
