Gift Ideas for Dads and Grads

Gift Ideas for Dads and Grads

When it's time to recognize the dads and recent graduates in our lives, we look for items with meaning and purpose that they will carry with them for many years to come. Handcrafted leather goods that evolve and get more special with age are a perfect gift for Father's Day as well as graduation. We've selected a few of our items that traditionally carry special meaning to those who have already accomplished so much or are setting out on new journeys.

The Passport Cover
A leather passport wallet is a staple for any traveler. The Tan Horween Chromexcel® exterior is a rich deep brown, and is paired with natural vegetable tanned leather on the interior. It has two interior card pockets, with a tab to hold important cards securely.

The Valet Tray
Our leather Valet Tray is made from a single piece of natural vegetable tanned leather and is designed to hold your most important everyday essentials. The natural leather will darken and age over time, developing a beautiful and unique patina.

Natural Vegetable Tanned Leather

The aging process of a natural vegetable tanned leather item is a very enjoyable process, and one that is highly appreciated by leather aficionados. Over time the  piece starts to take on a patina that is unique to the user. Sun exposure, daily handling, water, and conditioning give natural vegetable tanned leather a dark rustic look over time.

Horween Shell Cordovan Watch Straps

Shell Cordovan Watch Band
The perfect compliment to a classic gift. This classic style watch strap is made from one piece of rich Horween Shell Cordovan leather, with stainless steel or black PVD buckle hardware.

brown chromexcel slim wallet

Thornwood Leather Slim Wallet
Handmade from beautiful Chromexcel®, Bridle or Natural Vegetable Tanned leather, the Thornwood Wallet is a small slim wallet for just the essentials. It features a snap closure, 3 pockets, and a grommet for an optional belt lanyard.

Mens beaded bracelets in wooden bowl

Round Stone Bracelets
Our Round Stone Bracelets are clean, minimalist bead bracelets featuring polished stones and a unique leather accent that will patina over time. The perfect accent for casual and work styling. 

All black everyday carry grid

Black Leather
Nothing is more timeless than black leather. Many of our black pieces are made of Horween Chromexcel® or light and strong bridle leather. They make the perfect classic gift. 


Sincerely, Joe & Yumi, Friday & River
