When we put together this Father's Day Gift Guide recently, it felt like we had found enough buys for the guys in all of our lives. But then we realized that not all Dads like beer—some are more into wine. (Or whiskey. But I digress.) So when Josh Cellars announced that they were partnering with the mobile gift-giving app, Giftagram, to create curated gift boxes for Father's Day, it definitely piqued my interest.
If you aren't familiar with the Josh brand, the founder, Joseph Carr, actually named the company after his own father, Josh. Dad gratitude is basically in the brand's DNA, so it makes total sense that they'd come up with something fun to celebrate fathers everywhere. For $99 (and the boxes are worth more, folks!), you can choose from three different boxes shipped straight to Dad's door—all of which come with a bottle of Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Reserve and a bunch of other loot from legit brands, big and small. The "Wine Lover Dad" box includes a pair of beautiful hand-blown stemless glasses and a gold RBT wing corkscrew.
If your pops has wanderlust, order the "Travel Dad" set that includes a Shinola linen journal, Malin+Goetz toiletries, and an Away dopp kit. Bonus points if you throw in a plane ticket!
And for the foodie fathers out there, check out the "Gourmet Dad" assortment, which includes specialty planks and spices for grilling plus Iron Chef Michael Symon's new book, Playing With Fire.
Download Giftagram to purchase these boxes and more. Expedited shipping is available, for all your last-minute peeps. And if you happen to be New York City later this week, you can actually purchase the boxes IRL at the brand's Grand Central pop up shop in Vanderbilt Hall (June 13 to June 15, noon to 8 pm). Shoppers can also sip on samples of Josh Cellars wines and purchase engraved bottles of wine there, too. 100 percent of the profits from wine sold in the shop will be donated to the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) in honor of Josh’s legacy.
Wine for Dad for a good cause! Now that's something we can fully get behind. Maybe Dad will even share a glass with you.
