It’s a fact: Dads are suckers for high quality leather goods. Instead of getting him a wallet or belt like you always do, why not surprise him with a genuine leather iPhone case? It’s a simple upgrade that he wouldn’t think to get himself, but one that makes a big difference. The look and feel of this Mujjo case “is perfectly on par with Apple’s now defunct leather cases,” explains one buyer.
The under $60 design features luxe premium European leather tanned in the Netherlands and ages beautifully over time. It’s lined with a satin-like Japanese microfibre, has clicky metal button covers and a 1mm raised leather bezel that protects the screen from getting scratched. “If you are looking for a case that feels premium and looks wonderful, this one is a safe bet,” adds the 5-star reviewer. And yes, it’s MagSafe compatible so you can still charge your device wirelessly.

If you haven’t heard, as of the end of last year Skims is the official underwear partner of the NBA, the WNBA and USA Basketball. And for good reason. Men love Kim Kardashian’s intimates line just as much as women. For Father’s Day you can’t go wrong gifting the brand’s best-selling boxer brief 3-pack for under $50. Most notably, the breathable cotton boxer briefs  are constructed with a super smooth, stretchy fabric that hugs your body without being too clingy. They “feel great, almost like I almost have nothing on,” raves one buyer. Others note the high quality, one saying “once you go SKIMS you never go back!” And they are, of course, complete with the official SKIMS logo detailing on the soft-touch elastic waistband.

It provides the same deep tissue treatment (reaching 16 millimeters into soft tissue) of more expensive models and has customizable speeds up to 2400 percussions per minute. It features the brand’s iconic triangular ergonomic grip (which makes it easy to massage your back), four interchangeable heads and a 30-pound stall force, and is made with QuietForce technology that’s not obnoxiously loud.

Revamp your dad’s at-home gym game with these genius adjustable dumbbells.

Shoppers also note they’re also well balanced with a comfortable grip. “I really like the ability to adjust the sides to different weights, it allows for more exercise variations than possible with traditional dumbbells,” explains one buyer.
