Father’s Day is coming soon. Wouldn’t your dad like something special from Pendleton? Here are some gift ideas…what do you think?
For the Dad of all Trades
For the handy dad, we suggest the Victorinox Swiss Army’s Spartan in our bestselling Glacier Park pattern. The handy dad will have every tool he’ll need in one knife: large blade, small blade, corkscrew, can opener with small screwdriver (also for Phillips screws), bottle opener with large screwdriver, wire stripper, reamer, key ring, tweezers and toothpick.
A bonus with this gift? A portion of your purchase helps fund restoration projects through the National Park Foundation, including the Helical Stairs at Glacier national Parks Many Glacier Lodge. And that’s something we can ALL get behind!
For the Dad Who Really Does Want Socks
They exist, these dads. They just really like socks! But we don’t want him to have just any old socks.
We suggest Pendleton socks, which come in such a variety of style, fabrications and patterns, there is always a perfect pair for the sock-loving dad. Take a look and have fun.
For the Dude Dad
He’s cool, he’s fun, and if he doesn’t have it, he really wants it. This is the original Westerley, part of Pendleton’s line since the seventies, and part of pop culture history since Jeff Bridges wore it in The Big Lebowski.
In fact, this year is the twentieth anniversary of the movie’s release. But don’t mention that to Dad. It might make him feel old, and he’s anything but. Just get him the sweater, Dude.
For the “Don’t’ Get Me Anything” Dad
We all know him. He asks for hankies, if he asks for anything at all. We think he’s motivated by modesty, but maybe he’s just practical. So for this dad, we offer a Wallet/Valet Tray Set that is eminently practical.
The wallet and tray are made with high-grade leather and plaid Pendleton wool. The valet tray sits on his dresser, ready to catch his change, comb, jack knife, and the well-made, last-forever wallet that’s part of the set. Dad is happy, and you’re happy that you got him something he’ll use every single day.
For the Dad Who Deserves the Best
Every dad deserves the best! But for a certain dad, this is an ultra-special gift.
Pendleton Whisky has released their Director’s Reserve. Aged for twenty years, distilled with pure, glacier-fed spring water from Oregon’s Mt. Hood that allows the unadorned, warm notes of oak, cinnamon, and rye to shine through. A little water or an ice cube opens up orange spice, vanilla, and caramel, followed by a mature and mellow finish. The bottle is wrapped in a leather sleeve with tooling crafted by third-generation saddle maker Randy Severe, whose family has made custom saddles for nearly 70 years. Severe leatherwork is legendary! Looking for a retailer near you? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will point you in the right direction.
And one more…
Okay, that’s our top five. You’ll notice there’s not a wool shirt on this list, and of course, for a lot of dads, a Pendleton Shirt is the ultimate gift.

Have fun with your dads on Father’s Day, everyone!
