  1. These are such great picks! I love that they’re all masculine without totally playing into the traditional gender roles Father’s Day is all too fond of. Heck, apart from the mustache treatment, I want all of these things for myself!

    1. Thanks, Becca! I agree, I think they are definitely slightly “masculine” while still being unisex. It’s funny you mentioned the mustache treatment, I find handlebar mustaches hilarious and have always imagined I would grow one if I were a guy (or, a very confident bearded lady?).
