Still looking for just the right gift for a favorite father? Find these Dad-worthy options in Kailua Town.
Art He Can Wear
Drop in to Nick Kuchar Art & Design Co. to find the vintage-inspired artist’s newest aloha shirt collaboration with Kahala: “Heavy Water,” which pays homage to big-wave riders and several iconic surf breaks. While you’re in the shop, browse his collection of vintage-inspired surf and travel posters depicting favorite locations in Hawaii. Dropped into one of Nick’s hand-made frames, they’ll be ready to elevate the man-cave decor.
Crazy Shirts’ newly released Clark Little Photography Collection features the legendary shore-break photographer’s iconic images on men’s crewneck tees and board shorts.
Up His Game
For the board game afficionado, we found kama‘aina woodcrafter Greg Eaves’ magnificent solid koa cribbage board in the shape of an outrigger canoe (numbered and signed by the artist) at Island Treasures. A large koa wood chess/checker board by James La Reaux also caught our attention.
Geared for Adventure
Just in time for Father’s Day, Kailua Beach Adventures’ long-awaited custom-made, hard-case “Pali” coolers have arrived. Four colors, two sizes (20- and 33-liter) and easier on the wallet than the industry leader’s gear.
For the Body Buff
Shop Lanikai Bath and Body’s all-natural men’s collection for Bombucha moisturizing and exfoliating soaps; CBD-infused soaking salts, massage oil and muscle rub; and ready-to-gift boxed sets.
For Father’s Day shopping, Waxing the City has brought in some favorite men’s products like Spongellé all-in-one scrub/cleanse/hydrate buffers infused with body wash.
Bring on Dinner
Serving up a prime rib dinner for Dad doesn’t get much easier than Big City Diner’s family pack to-go, available Father’s Day weekend, June 18-20 (order at least 72 hours ahead). The 3.5 pounds of Hawaiian rock salt prime rib, accompanied by garlic mashed potatoes, oven roasted veggies, Caesar salad, snow krabby cakes and assorted fusion-flavored macarons will feed a family of 4 or 5. Check BCD’s website for information about their Father’s Day breakfast family pack and dine-in specials.
Planning to treat Dad to a home-cooked meal? We delved through the archive of recipes on Island Olive Oil’s website and discovered lots of ways to please the palate, such as Mushroom & Truffle Smothered Pork Cutlets and Red Apple Glazed Pork Chops, a refreshing Southwestern Salad and Blood Orange Brownies.
