How to Find the Best Eyewear for Dad this Father’s Day

Posted Jun 16, 2023 | Fashion & Trends

Shopping for dads can be a difficult task. After all: how many yard tools, novelty coffee mugs, sports memorabilia, and outdoor camping gear/supplies can one dad really need? If you have a dad in your life who’s particularly difficult to shop for (we’re looking at you, Mr. “I don’t want anything”) you may just have found yourself throwing up your hands and clicking “buy” on yet another new grilling accessory (never mind that he still hasn’t used the one you got him last year.)

But have you ever considered getting Dad a new pair of glasses? We know, we know—it’s hardly the most exciting suggestion. But before you start googling “best affordable golf clubs,” just hear us out: every dad can benefit from a pair of glasses. They’ll protect his eyes from the sun, refresh his style (and who doesn’t know a dad that could benefit from a style upgrade?), and help him see better in his day-to-day life. What dad doesn’t like a practical gift?

But how does one go about picking eyewear for a dad? The first thing you might want to consider is his lifestyle: does he prefer to spend his Sundays toiling in the backyard, or lounging in the living room with a good book? Does he need a sturdy pair of glasses strong enough to keep up with his active lifestyle, or does he prioritize style above all things in his accessories? No matter what type of dad you’re shopping for, Eyeconic has a style to suit his needs:
