Father’s Day is coming up fast on June 16, happily falling right around the moment when spring swings into summer. Doesn’t an afternoon spent sunning yourself on the beach with family sound nothing short of wonderful? As the day approaches, you might be wondering what to get your partner or your father; chances are, he’ll be grateful for whatever you put your heart into. That being said, Father’s Day might just be the perfect occasion to splurge on something that’s perfect for a day by the sea.

Fortunately for you, we have plenty of ideas. Is dad a gearhead? Consider getting him a portable Bluetooth speaker, like the one we’ve selected from Ultimate Ears. It’s the perfect way to add a little auditory enhancement to any seaside afternoon. Does he fancy himself an amateur photographer? Iconic camera brand Leica does an instant film camera in the dreamiest of teals—perfect for snapping shots of sand castles, surf, and more. Trying to level up his swim trunk wardrobe? Thorsun does a great pair in an eye-catching leaf print. Trying to convince him to get into skin care (and anticipating any potential sunburn)? Gift him some of Malin+Goetz’s ever-popular detox face masks. Sometimes reminding dad that he’s worth a little self-care, even after a long day at the beach, can be the best Father’s Day gift of all.
