My globetrotting Dad takes a mean pic, has style for miles, and a superhuman tolerance for spice. Here are a few things that I would love to buy him if I weren't hurtling towards funemployment. Instead, I'll probably end up giving him the gift of my sweet smile, when I'm living on the couch and passing out with a bag of Cheetos and a can of Bud each night.
This gift would be less an act of generosity and more an act of self-preservation. I've seen the way that he stares covetously at my beloved Power Shot. If I buy him the new model ($439.95), I will be left in peace, with my little miracle camera. Shoots like an SLR, small like a point-and-click.
He could carry the G11 in this classic Filson Wool Field Bag ($240). I feel like every dude should own a Filson.
Equally classic is this MoMA reissue of the automatic Match Bill watch ($850).
And now for the items that I could actually afford to buy him! How about Far Flung & Well Fed, a collection of pieces from NY Times travel and food writer R.W. Apple Junior ($17.95).
Or there's the go-to Timothy Clark gift. Hot sauce ($28 for a four-pack)!!!!!!!!!!!
