Scrambling to find dad the right gift for the big day? From exceptionally hydrating bottled water to show-stopping shoes, Here’s five favorites we can’t stop thinking about.
1. Essentia ionized alkaline bottled water – $35.88 for 12 1.5L bottles at Fresh Direct
Dads like to be hydrated (Ok, everyone likes to be hydrated), but dads seem particularly ready for a fresh bottle of water any time. Get it done right with Essentia, the original ionized alkaline water with a pH of 9.5 or higher, resulting in a genuinely more hydrating water. And now offered in a 500mL six-pack, Essentia just became that much easier to take around the house or on the go. It’s taste is truly exceptional and for the mixologist dad, its even great in custom cocktails.
