Father's Day Gifts: Sriracha, Aphrodisiac Cookbook, Rum, and More
Father's Day is this Sunday, and it's an obligatory holiday. One exception: If you're a fetus whose dad has dubbed himself "Yeezus," you have our permission to ignore the holiday from now until forever.
But for the rest of us, it's time to start the mad scramble for a last-minute gift. This isn't like Mother's Day -- cheap carnations and a brunch buffet aren't gonna wow padre. So we put together a list of the best swag to get your pops, based on his defining characteristics.

Hipsters might seem like a newer breed, but the originals date all the way back to pre-Bob Ross. (The proof is in the Tumblr.) So if your dad is still rocking nerdy glasses, an unruly beard, and tattered plaid shirts -- just like he was 20 years ago -- he deserves a shout-out. Gift him with a modern twist on a hipster fave -- Copperpot's sriracha. He's probably been dousing his food with the original for decades, so clue him in to the new, slightly sweet concoction by our local jam gurus.
Despite sporting male pattern baldness that rivals Dick Cheney's, your dad still thinks he's Don Draper -- bless his geriatric heart. And somehow his milkshake still brings the chicks to the yard (probably because of all the disposable income he's got buried there). So what to get the man who loves women? The New InterCourses, an Aphrodisiac Cookbook. That way, he'll have a handy seduction manual available anytime he brings his yoga instructor home for a little, ahem, dessert.
