A (Last-Minute) Father’s Day Gift Guide

Tuned Out

If your dad already has wireless earbuds (that he uses exclusively during his early morning coffee), why not spring for a pair of classic leather headphones (that also happen to be wireless)? We like this handsome pair by Master & Dynamic, as they use Blue- tooth technology to help tune out ambient noise and create a rich sound quality. Retail: $550. Neiman Marcus, 390 San Lorenzo Avenue, 786-999-1000.

Clean Up

This Miracle Mile locale is not your average barbershop. That’s because when dad arrives for his appointment, he’ll enter a spa-like environment that offers more than just a basic haircut – like a shot of espresso or rum. Add on the shop’s signature shaving kit so the luxurious treatment can continue at home, too. Retail: $40. Well Groomed Gentleman, 130 Miracle Mile, 786-362-6360

Craft Cocktail

Founded by Magic City transplants Ross Graham and Simon Benstead, the Miami Cocktail Company crafts wine-based libations made from organic ingredients that won’t leave dad feeling sluggish. With refreshing varieties like blood orange mimosa and copper pot margarita, they’re the perfect addition to the next family gathering. Retail: $14.99 per bottle. Whole Foods Coral Gables, 6701 Red Road, 305-421-9421.

Caffeine Fix

Does your dad adore his morning latte but dreads waiting in line at the shop around the corner? Enter the Barista Pro, the latest addition to Breville’s espresso line. It churns out café quality coffee in just seconds, so there’s always time for a second cup. Retail: $799.95. Williams Sonoma, 350 San Lorenzo Ave. #2005, 305-446-9421.

Book It

As one of our favorite destinations for tasty eats and live music, and of course, an abundance of good reads, we can pretty much guarantee that a visit to Books & Books will yield a thoughtful gift. Although selecting a book can be personal, a no-fail option is Michael Chabon’s “Pops,” a collection of heartfelt essays that insightfully renders the author’s take on fatherhood in just 144 pages. Retail: $19.99. Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., 305-442-4408
