You're Welcome: Seven Last Minute Father's Day Gifts Pops Will Love

Because it’s been a long week.

Let’s be honest, it’s pretty tricky to buy gifts for Father’s Day. You might’ve given the best gift during the holidays or during his Earthstrong, leaving your June 18 nice and empty. Don’t fret, we’ve all been there, which is why we’ve gathered some of the best last minute treats that will make this Father’s Day the best one yet.

From Sonos’ innovative speakers to Crown Royal’s flavorful wine barrel finish, these gifts will be good to Pops and your wallet.

You’re welcome.


For The “Hip Tech Dad”

Sonos Play Speakers

Sonos allows the best bass for your buck with their PLAY:1 and PLAY:5 speakers. Sleek, portable and easy to use, the speakers provide crystal clear sounds that send grooves throughout your home. Powered through the SONOS app, Dad can play DJ with access to his iTunes or Spotify playlists straight from his phone.

Find out more about SONOS speakers here.

G-Shock (G-STEEL Collection)

Sure, we have clocks on our phones, but there’s nothing like the look and feel of a classic watch. With G-Shock’s G-Steel collection, traditional elements meet a futuristic finish. A smaller bezel (in gold or blue) also allow the watch to be worn in the office or at the gym.

Get Dad on the list for this watch as it will be available to masses next month. Check out more details here.

Even Headphones

Yes, you can get $10 headphones at the bodega, but you won’t get the same power. With Even, their headphones are made specifically for your frame of sound. With the patented Even EarPrint technology, a series of tests are taken through the headphones right before you’re able to use them. This allows sound to be distributed solely based on how Dad hears sounds.

Paired in a stylist fashion, these headphones are pretty much all you need to tune everyone out and turn the music up. Get them here.

For The “Spirited Dad”

Crown Royal’s Wine Barrel Finished

Ironically crowned as the second expression in the Crown Royal Noble Collection, the flavor has just right amount of warmth and spice. The finish comes directly from its time in Cabernet Sauvignon wine barrels, making the outcome that much sweeter. The brand has also turned up the fun on Father’s Day with an interactive game that allows you place Dad in fine art. Check it out here.

Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège

The classic cognac takes on a new form with V.S.O.P Privilège. The flavor includes grapes from four vineyards, blending effortlessly with aged barrels. “This Cognac works for any occasion because of these balanced flavor characteristics,” Jordan Bushell, U.S. Ambassador of Mixology and Brand Education shared. “Cognac was actually a popular ingredient when classic cocktails were being created in the 1800s until the Phylloxera pest destroyed many vineyards in France between the 1870s to the 1890s, impacting the grapes used to create Cognac and making it extremely pricey to use. Now, more & more people are discovering Cognac through cocktails, especially Millennials, and Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilège is the perfect representation of the entire category.” What better way to bring the flavors of today to Dad? Try out V.S.O.P Privilège here.

BACARDÍ Major Lazer Limited Edition Rum

Everyone loves “limited edition,” especially Pops. BACARDÍ’s Major Lazer Limited Edition Rum brings together a blend of light and dark flavors aged up to four years. Partnering with dancehall mavens Major Lazer, Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire made sure to include their favorite components of the Caribbean into the final product. Cop a bottle here.

For The “Wild Card Dad”


These curated packages include everything you need for the mainly dad but also the unpredictable one. Sent with a crowbar, choose over 90 different crates that tap into Dad’s love for food, hunting, sports and even zombie survival. Some of the new crates include the Gin-Fusion Refill Kit, Smooth Face Mini Crate, On the Water Pack, Auto-Care Crate, and the Chef Knife Making Kit. You might win child of the year with this gift. Check them out here.

Tiffany "New York" Pollard Hilariously Stars In Fenty Beauty's Gift Guide

We're deep into the holiday season, and it's clear that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty reign just won't let up. The 30-year-old Bajan star recently called upon the first lady of ratchet reality television, Tiffany Pollard – also known as "New York" from VH1's Flavor of Love and I Love New York –  to star in her latest video campaign vlog for the cosmetics line.

The 36-year-old reality show star looks fabulous in the nine-minute video uploaded on Sunday (Dec. 16), wearing brown lipstick with shoulder-length curly, black hair, acrylic nails, and gold jewelry on her neck and wrist.

Pollard gets straight to the point in the video starting, with the Pro’Filter Foundation saying "I feel younger and thinner, I didn’t know it could do all that, but it’s doing it!"

Other products from the Fenty Beauty collection includes the Killawatt Foil palette, the Frost Bunny-Frost Hunny-Frost Money eye, and lip sets and Gloss Bomb in Fu$$y. Pollard does what she does best while she speaks about on the various items, and she doesn't hold back on the profanity nor the R-rated commentary.

When the former I Love New York star posted a snippet of the vlog to her Instagram, she received a lot of love from her Hollywood peers under the post including Rachel True (The Craft), Dascha Polanco (OITNB), Melyssa Ford, Perez Hilton and her former castmate from Flavor of Love, Deelishis.

Despite her current absence on reality television on the moment, Pollard continues to stay relevant as memes and GIFs of her during her time on love show competitions lives on, as well pop-up exhibits of her in museums.Check out New York in Fenty Beauty's new gift guide video above.

Stephen Curry Inspired By 9-Year-Old To Provide Curry 6 Shoes For Girls

Proving to be more than just an expert shooter from the free-throw line, Stephen Curry has managed to do right by the majority of the people in his life, including a young girl he's never met.

After receiving a handwritten letter from 9-year-old Riley Morrison, the precocious kid pointed out one minor issue with the Golden State Warrior's latest Curry 5 shoes — the sneakers were not manufactured in girls' shoe sizes.

hey @stephencurry30 can u help? pic.twitter.com/3jwuEc776B

"My dad and I visited the Under Armour website and were disappointed to see that there were no Curry 5s for sale under the girl's section," the aspiring basketball player wrote.

Quickly swooping in for the save, the 30-year-old athlete responded with a written note, saying, "I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue." Continuing the letter, the father-of-three went on to say, "I am going to send you the Curry 5's now and you will be the first kid to get the Curry 6."

In a statement to VIBE, Dean Stoyer, VP, Global Brand Communications for Under Armour explained the shoes were intended to be worn by girls and boys.

"Thanks to Riley and Stephen, we’re correcting a simple yet critical error. We’ve actually offered Curry signature footwear in youth sizing for boys and girls since the initial Curry 1; however, labeling that youth sizing for “Boys” and not designating for boys and girls, was simply wrong," he said. "Beginning now and moving forward our youth sizes will be properly labeled on UA.com to reflect co-gender “Grade School” sizing, and on boxes beginning with the first youth sizes of the Curry 6 delivering this spring."

Working diligently to correct the mistake, Curry proceeded to invite the young fan to an event for International Women's Day in March.

Looks like everyone wins, including Riley and girls all over the nation.

Wu-Tang Clan Taps Teyana Taylor To Model New Lipstick Collab

On Thursday (Nov. 1), the iconic hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan announced to Billboard that they teamed up with Milk Makeup to launch their first-ever cosmetics line with Teyana Taylor as the star of the campaign.

Wu-Tang, who is heavily inspired by Chinese culture, are no strangers when it comes to extending their brand beyond music. In the past, the Staten Island group has had a line of sneakers via a partnership with Nike and spent this year launching an apparel collection of streetwear for different seasons.

However, this is the first time the group hopes to reach to the hearts of ladies everywhere with the new lipstick collection. Wu-Tang's RZA told Billboard that his wife is a fan of Milk Makeup products. "My wife has a cool perspective about makeup [because] in her youth, she was in the modeling circles," RZA said.

"She is a fan of Milk Makeup's products, and when [Rassi and I] talked about forming a collaboration that reflected our NYC sensibility, and philosophy makeup became the unique and unpredictable choice," he added. "The Milk Makeup collaboration was spearheaded by my wife."

The 46-second commercial for the limited-edition product features Teyana Taylor performing karate moves on a roof with the NYC skyline in the background. Dressed in an all-black battle suit with long sleek black hair, Taylor is focused on her kung-fu styled moves as the video goes into slow-motion.

Taylor, who featured Wu-Tang on a remix to her 2018 single "Gonna Love Me" spoke with Milk about the new venture. "[Working with Milk and Wu-Tang] was a no-brainer. I have been a huge fan of Wu-Tang forever and I love the modern energy of Milk Makeup. When I saw the quality of the lipstick with the custom-sculpted dragon on the bullet, I was impressed—it's like a work of art."

The limited-edition collection is currently available exclusively on MilkMakeup.com. Each of the lipsticks can be bought separately for $55 each or all together for $440. Along with the collection comes a 24 karat gold compact mirror ($75) and a makeup pin set ($18) that can also be bought separately.

Will you be buying one for the holiday season?
