Dad have a bulging wallet in the back of his pants? It's time to slim things down and get under control with Jac Henri leather wallets.

Choose from Italian leather, lizard and ostrich. Available for a limited time at www.jachenri.com ($45).

The Louis Vuitton Tambour LV Cup Automatic Countdown (price available upon request) is just the thing for watch collectors with a penchant for sailing.

Available at Louis Vuitton stores in the Design District and Aventura Mall.


Ready to give your thirsty dad something to quench that thirst after a meal prepared on the grill (we're thinking steaks here).

Whether it's full bodied reds or tasty whites, the Newton Unfiltered line features a balanced taste unlike many other wines. Our pick for right now - the 2010 Cabernet. Available at Total Wines.
