I feel like shopping for Father’s Day gifts are not an easy task. Especially when dad says “you don’t need to get me anything”! But, the truth is, we do! We have to show our dad’s we appreciate them. Even if it’s just getting them a cute pair of socks or a super soft tee shirt you know he will live in.
I scoured the Country Club Plaza for a great roundup of gifts. There is something for everyone from the hip dad to the preppy Dad, and my husband the fitness loving dad…
Pinstripes has been bringing classic, tailored Men’s wear to the Country Club Plaza for as long as I can remember! The guys there know their stuff, and can hook your dad up. I love their fun assortment of bow ties and pocket squares.
Every guy needs sunnies and Barton-Perreira are the best of the best. This small, boutique sunglass company (with Kansas City roots!) makes classic and cutting edge styles. They also do eyeglass frames, if your dad is in need of some new prescription lenses and frames.

They may not want to admit it, but Dad’s like grooming products too! Bluemercury has everything you could need and more. Molton Brown is a fabulous line! My husband loves it because of their masculine scents. The Black Pepper Recharge or Tobacco Absolute will be one that he won’t want to share with you 🙂
Jack Black is a just for men product line that has everything from shaving products to hair and body wash, also available at Bluemercury.
Lululemon recently launched a line of board shorts that can be worn poolside, or just with a tee shirt. They are super lightweight with zip pockets and a lace-tie front. They also come in solids for the anti-print guy 🙂
HMK has a wonderful selection of gifts at affordable prices. They also feature a lot of Made in KC vendors, which I do love. It’s great to support our local business owners!
Vineyard Vines is a one stop shop for the preppy dad; from shorts to slacks, flip flops, belts and button ups. This store has him covered.
Cole Haan has an incredible selection of cool tennis shoes to fit any age dad; or style for that matter! If your dad is traveling this summer and needs a good walking shoe, or maybe he just needs to ditch his “running shoes” for a cool pair of kicks. These would make a great gift!
If my husband had to choose one spot to shop, it would be Baldwin. It is another Kansas City based company that has a large cult following. Their signature KC hats are always a hit…
Their denim is the best you will find; and they also have a line of sportswear ranging from tees, to button ups and sweaters. The hip dad will love everything in this store.
Marine Layer is one of the newest stores on the Plaza. They are known for their super soft, great fitting tee’s, and California cool, easy going style. Their tees sell at 3 for $100 which allows you to stock up for dad this summer.
The Art of Shaving takes the guess work out of putting together the perfect gift. Their grab and go shaving kits are a no brainer.
I hope this gets you inspired, now go and shop for that dad in your life! Father’s Day is Sunday June 18th! For the complete store directory for the Country Club Plaza, click HERE.
