Treat your Dad to Something Unique

Father's Day is June 19! At Bibelot, we have tons of stuff your dad would love. If you need a little helping picking out a gift for Dad this year, see our ideas below & plan a visit with us soon.


For the well-groomed dad...

Does your dad spend lots of time perfecting his looks? Perhaps he could use some new skin products! We carry two skincare lines - Jack Black and Duke Cannon - that are a huge favorite amongst well-groomed men! Jack Black products fuse the latest skincare innovations with certified organic ingredients, vitamins, botanicals, and antioxidants to deliver wonderful results. We carry three popular items: Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, Turbo Wash, and Beard Lube. 

Duke Cannon skincare has a masculine scent and is perfect for your hard-working dad! A portion of all proceeds are donated to U.S. Veterans, so you can feel good about your purchase, too. Superior Grade Shaving Cream, Big American Brick of Soap, and Working Man's Face Wash are all available at our stores.

Grab one of our apothecary travel sets to accompany your skincare purchase - that way Dad can bring his product with him wherever he goes!

Let your dad express his individuality with Benjo's shoelaces. These brightly-colored laces add just the right amount of subtle pizazz to regular old dress shoes. Plus, he'll think of you every time he looks at his feet!

For dads who appreciate a good drink...

Alcohol connoisseurs are covered with us! We've got great gadgets that would be a good addition to anyone's bar. Keep drinks cool without diluting them with Teroforma's Whiskey Stones, the Whisky Wedge by Corksicle, and ice spheres by Tovolo. The Whiskey Gift Set by Prepara is fantastic - it comes with a nice tumbler and an ice sphere. Pair it with a fancy bottle of your dad's favorite sip and you're good to go! Dad can make tasty craft cocktails with our assortment of recipe books and the 4-in-1 bar tool - it can pop off bottle caps, open cans, peel fruits & veggies, and make garnishes.

Is beer more your dad's thing? Why not get him some Beer Stones! Made in Minnesota by local company Brewmuse, they keep beer cold, enhance carbonation, and keep a nice, fluffy head on your beer as if poured directly from a tap! Brewmuse has a great diagram on their website describing exactly how they work (and trust us, they're pretty cool!) Or maybe grab a magnetic bottle opener by G3 Studios. Individually handcrafted in Michigan, these pieces mount to a wall and catch multiple caps. The Beer Geek Handbook by Patrick Dawson is a hilarious guide for those obsessed with beer. It includes a guide to planning beer-centric vacations, the 10 Beer Commandments, beer quizzes, and more. 

For dads who love the Great Outdoors...



Is your dad totally the outdoorsy type? Help him plan his next camping trip with a couple great books. Best Tent Camping in Minnesota by Tom Watson describes in great detail favorite Minnesota campgrounds and recommends specific sites to pitch a tent in. Fifty Places to Camp Before you Die by Chris Santella features the world's top locations for sleeping under the stars ranging from U.S. National Parks to more exotic locations such as Botswana. 

Keep your active dad hydrated with new travel flasks by Oggi. Made of stainless steel, they are double-walled & vacuum insulated to keep your drinks cold for 24 hours or hot for 12 hours. Plus, the top has a slide lock, so no need to worry about spillage!



Maybe fishing is more your dad's thing. Let's Go Fishing!: Fish Tales from the Northwoods by Eric Dregni is a fascinating and informative compendium of tales that celebrate the history and sport of fishing. And there's always the fish flask - a fun little nip for Dad to take on those day-long fishing trips!

Fire up the grill, Dad!


Of course, we have to appeal to dads who love their grills! Dad will love trying the tasty recipes in our barbecue cookbooks. Stonewall Kitchen makes some delicious sauces that add great flavor to meats - boozy bacon barbecue, sriracha teriyaki, and honey sriracha barbecue...YUM!

The Great Scrape, made in Minnesota, is the ultimate grill cleaning tool! Made from solid hardwood, it custom grooves to fit your grill and will not harm grill grates. The Grill Light grilling spatula is a totally awesome grill tool - it lights up with a waterproof flashlight so Dad can grill in dark conditions and see exactly what he's doing. 


Of course, we have plenty more where these things came from! Be sure to stop by our shops before June 19 and let us treat your dad!
