Good morning and happy Friday. It’s the end of a long workweek. Tired? Yeah, so was your dad — every day for 40 years so he could put food on the table. Or your uncle. Your grandpa. All those impressive men who taught you who you are and how to be. Time to show him you appreciate all his hard work and love — our Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide is primed and ready. After you’re through bookmarking that, here’s what’s good in gear: eyewear that’s ripe for the summer, beach chairs that are ripe for the summer, new sneakers that are ripe for the summer and much more, also ripe.
And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
