Looking for a unique Father's Day gift? Try a Faherty Hawaiian shirt.

If you’re looking for a fun, stylish Father’s Day gift, here are some ideas that just landed in my inbox from Faherty brand, a trendy clothing resource run by two brothers who grew up in New Jersey.

I especially like this label because it offers matching Faherty favorites for both dad and kids. That’s right … adorable miniature versions of these top sellers are offered in sizes 2-6.

Celebrity fans of Faherty looks include Justin Timberlake, Liam Hemsworth, Anthony Bourdain, Jake Owen, Larry David and Ryan Gosling. Here are some of my faves for Father’s Day gift giving:


Perfect for tropical getaways or just a casual Friday, this short sleeve shirt is lightweight. Just right for summer days spent by the beach. Dad will like the signature Hawaiian prints that are hand-drawn and printed on washed rayon for a traditional look. These are inspired by authentic, vintage Hawaiian-made shirts that originated in the 1930s.


Casual outerwear is a thoughtful gift. This classic Baja Poncho is redefined in super-soft cotton. It’s crafted in a custom-designed jacquard pattern weave and brushed for a lofty feel. Pop can throw it over his shorts after a swim or during chilly summer nights.


Here’s one sweater, two ways. This soft, easy-going crewneck begs for a chilly summer night. Grey french terry reverses to a stripe terry layout knitted with different yarn colors. Pair it with pants for a casual lunch or with swim trunks after a day at the beach.


Made for long, lazy days under the sun, Faherty swim trunks are crafted with innovative fabric made primarily from recycled plastic bottles. Instead of creating plastic to make polyester, they break down existing plastic from water bottles, blend it with cotton and a touch of elastic for stretch, and weave it into yarn. It feels and acts just like your regular swim swimsuit but is more eco-friendly.
