Every dad takes pride in being a father, but some have almost as much pride living in the great Bay Area. Bird vs. Bird is an Oakland-based artist that has some Bifold Wallets that are sure to keep dad’s cash and cards in place. If your dad prefers to carry less around town, San Francisco-based Heathered offers Slim Map Wallets that are sure to fit his necessities.

If you’re looking for some local artwork for dad to have on the wall, The Girl & Rhino offers 18×24 inch AT-AT Prints inspired by the cranes at the Port of Oakland. 3 Fish Studios also has locally inspired art, such as their Love This Town 11×14 Print.

Plus, dad might be in need of some new finishing touches to his wardrobe, such as a Vintage Bay Area Belt Buckle by Bear Wear Designs or perhaps that collar of his could use a snazzy Wood Bow Tie by Wood Thumb.

Let’s face it, some dads really love their fun and healthy habit of bike-riding. We think he should have his bike looking snazzy as him with a Bicycle Mustache by Molletta. Dads like to look good too, even while biking, so a Skinny Black Wood Tie by Wood Thumb is sure to stay put against the breeze as he rides through his day. If he’s more of the tee shirt type, 57-33‘s Bike Girl design will certainly suffice.

He should have a way of expressing his love of two-wheelers at home or at the office, so an Orange Penny Farthing Mug by Bread and Badger would definitely do the trick. Plus, a Bicycle Clock from 1.by.liz is sure to keep dad on time in any environment. Molletta also offers Bicycle Notebooks with many two-wheeling designs to choose from.

We wish you the best this Father’s Day, here’s to dads of all types everywhere!
