It's less than a week to Father's Day (it's Sunday, June 21, to be sure), and we at Shop Talk are on the hunt for that have-to-give item for our fathers this month. See our picks below in this special edition of The Met Set.

My father takes facial hair maintenance very seriously and is always clean shaven. so he goes through materials quickly. Seattle Sundries offers the perfect gift in its classic shaving set ($59). Bonus for being all natural, moisturizing, and locally made.

I have a pretty cool dad who can fix my Mini Cooper, make amazing pizza, and who introduced me to Bob Dylan and Vesper martinis. (Thanks Dad!) This Father's Day I'm thinking he needs the Carry On Cocktail Kit by W&P Design, available at E. Smith Mercantile ($24). This little tin contains everything you need to make an on-flight whisky into an old fashioned. This is what my dad meant when he told me to always be prepared, right?

My dad is the handiest of handymen. If he isn't building custom furniture, a tree house, poured concrete countertops...seriously, you name it...he's on the road visiting my sisters and me, fixing whatever home problem we're dealing with. He's also the type who would be happy with just a card, but for Father's Day I'm repaying his years of assistance with the Red Clouds Collective Portland-made apron and roll-tool kit from Hammer and Awl ($115).

I grew up to the summertime smell of blackened salmon on the grill, courtesy of my dad's passion for rustic meat cooking. So this Father's Day, I'll be giving him a Tom Douglas Rub with Love spice set ($18) for all his grilling needs. Yum.

My dad gets up nearly every morning at 4 to hit the tennis courts. Though he'd be more than happy if he received a fresh case of tennis balls this Father's Day, this vintage-inspired tee ($28) from the Huskies Team Shop is the perfect way to show off his love for the game.
