It’s June, which means there are two things we can count on: graduation parties, and Father’s Day (that falls on the 19th this year, just in case you weren’t sure). Graduating from high school or college is a huge accomplishment, while honoring the men who raised us right is the least we can do. This year, make sure to show those super smart grads and kick ass dads how much they mean with an awesome present. Not sure what to get the person who has everything? Our Ultimate Gift Guide for Grads & Dads Who Skate is here to save the day. Ready, set, SHOP!
If grads and dads have one thing in common, it’s that they’re both superheroes in our book! Therefore it only makes sense that they skate like one. This Almost skateboard featuring the Dark Knight himself is a great way to say, “Hey, you’re super.”
Now that your grad is all grown up, it’s time to ditch the backpack and invest in a bag that screams, “Hire me, I’m a responsible adult!” If it’s Dad you’re shopping for, this bag is also a dope alternative to a boring briefcase. The secret weapon to all JammyPack bags is the hidden speaker in the front pocket, which lets you listen to your favorite tunes during your commute, workout, or while you’re chilling at the skatepark.
Part of being an adult is staying politically aware and exercising your right to vote. Part of making your dad proud is showing him that you do, in fact, know what’s going on in the world. This deck from Enjoi is a tongue-in-cheek way to ride your preferences straight to the polling station.
What every grad needs (and, let’s face it, what dads never have enough of) are classy shirts they can wear to job interviews, on important dates, to anniversary dinners, and to family gatherings. Basically, any time you need to impress someone and a t-shirt just won’t cut it. That’s why this button up flannel from Independent is such a class act. Style, all grown up and ready to take over the world. Go, ahead. Get two. You know you’ll need them.
When you graduate college, your future is promising but still uncertain – except, of course, when it comes to student loans payments. Those are pretty much a guarantee. Which is why it’s even more important to protect your noggin when you’re skating. Now is NOT the time to damage that expensive brain! This helmet from Pro-Tec is mean, green, and will keep you in one piece. Your Dad will also appreciate it, since he was the one who taught you that safety always comes first!
Who’s the boss? Dad, of course! And what better way to celebrate his supreme power than with this dope stainless steam mug from Independent? Whether you fill it with coffee or something else (ahem) it’s a great reminder of how awesome he is. If you’re shopping for a graduate, well, he or she probably won’t be a boss for a while, but hey – we all start somewhere, and this mug is a great reminder of where they’ll end up if they work hard!
At the end of the day, graduations and Father’s Day are both reasons to celebrate, enjoy one another, and have a good time. And what better way to do those things than with a skateboard deck that makes you feel good? This deck from Blind Skateboards should do the trick.
Happy graduation to all the smarty-pants out there, and Happy Father’s Day to the dads who make it all possible. We hope you all have an awesome day, and are rewarded for all you do!
