Father’s Day Gift Guide from Santana Row

June is here and that means it’s time to spoil the amazing Father (or Father Figure) in your life. Whether it’s your own Father, Brother, Uncle, Grandfather or even that friend you know who does it all, they deserve something to commemorate the hard work they have put in.

So, if you’re a local of the San Jose area, make sure to swing by Santana Row, the hottest destination for shopping and dining and what I consider your one stop shop for finding the best Father’s Day Gifts.



Every Father needs a good backpack where they can use for a variety of things like, hiking, business trips, camping with the family, or going to work, you name it. The Battenkill Businessman’s Backpack is the perfect bag that is sturdy and has multiple pockets to store as many or as little items and has a padded compartment to even carry his laptop in. The Hanging Travel Kit will help keep his toiletries organized during family trips.



Who says guys don’t use beauty products?  I sure haven’t because I know my husband (who’s also a hard working father) definitely likes to take care of his skin. Here are 3 products that are versatile for men along with a great product for the guys who shave as well. Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture helps hydrate dry skin while a key ingredient (collagen) helps restore youthful skin. For the guy who shaves on a regular basis, Jack Black’s Beard Lube is key to his shaving regimen and acts as an all in one product to help condition the skin. Origin’s Checks and Balances is a great daily face cleanser that won’t leave his skin feeling dry. Make sure to stop by Sephora to grab these 3 amazing products for him.



 Oakley isn’t just for their world renown glasses, they also carry a variety of clothing and other accessories to surprise that Father you’re gifting. The Turbine Glasses are one of my favorites and can be worn any day and any occasion. The Supercoil 15 Leather flip flops will add a touch of style to his casual wear,while the Chalten Hat in jet black is great for those hot sunny days at the beach with the kids.


SR FD - Diesel

When you want him to look edgy, yet comfortable, you stop over at Diesel.  Their best seller for men are the JoggJeans which are made with a hybrid of denim + jersey that make for a comfortable wear with 3 different fits (Skinny, Carrot & Straight). Diesel also offers a wide variety of watches that matches any style for that perfect Father in your life. This particular watch style is the DZ4392 and I personally like the simplicity of the face with a hint of blue along with the leather strap.



Ok – when you think of Tommy Bahama, you think of the vacation shirt and the tropical print, right?  Well, I thought the same thing but when you actually walk into the store and see the various selection of shirts for him, you’ll come to realize that it’s not just the tropical vacation print shirts.  I was immediately drawn to the Sydney Squares Shirt that come in 8 colors that will definitely brighten his wardrobe while adding a lot of style to it as well.  This shirt is great to wear (as you can see) with shorts and can be worn for a casual event, to a semi-casual event or dinner out with the family.



If you want to take him out to dinner on Father’s Day, LB Steak is the place to go.  This American Steakhouse offers a delectable menu of seafood and steaks.  On Father’s Day, Sunday, June 19, LB Steak on Santana Row will be open from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM serving their regular brunch, reduced lunch and regular dinner a la carte menus, plus an all-day special of Surf and Turf with a 12 oz. Prime New York steak, fresh Maine lobster meat, asparagus and Béarnaise sauce.
