It’s time to celebrate dads! Father’s Day is almost here, so we’re breaking down our favorite ways to celebrate the fathers in our lives, by Enneagram type!

The Type One Dad

The Type One Dad is good and we love him for it! He’s all about taking things to a higher level of excellence, and you can help him do that with this brilliant cookbook. It’s delicious cooking, but make it good for the planet. You can pair it with this really gorgeous small batch cutting board.

The Type Two Dad

The Type Two Dad is kind and generous and always there to help, so he’ll love one of these beautiful blankets. He can stash his in the car for impromptu family picnics, beach hangouts, and star-gazing adventures (it’s big enough for 2-4 people), and he’ll love the hand-made leather straps that make the blanket easy to transport.

The Type Three Dad

The Type Three Dad is all about excellence. Help him achieve cocktail greatness with this Rio Red Grapefruit Cordial or this Tropical Passionfruit Syrup. Both are craft bar syrups made with the home craft cocktail enthusiast in mind. If your dad’s into no-proof cocktails, pair your gift with this cool little cocktail muddler.

The Type Four Dad

The Type Four Dad is creative and unique, and this Mesa Tray is perfect for him. It’s handmade from speckled stoneware, so no two pieces are exactly alike (just like him). It’s also made in Austin, Texas by a local artist, and exactly what Dad needs to corral his pocket change and accessories, or to display all those sweet handmade gifts from his little ones.

The Type Five Dad

The Type Five Dad is thoughtful and exactly the kind of problem-solver you need in your life! He’ll be delighted by the meaning and detail in this Texas Art Print from local artist (and Slow North co-founder) Jon Simmons, featuring the stunning natural beauty of Texas.

The Type Six Dad

The Type Six Dad is a steady, loyal presence in his kids’ lives, and he’ll love the opportunity to connect more with the people he loves the most with this set of family conversation cards. Pair conversation with some delicious homemade bread you make together for a special night, just for Dad.

The Type Seven Dad

The Type Seven Dad is all about fun and adventure, but sometimes all that fun and adventure makes a dad sore. Help him relax and recover for his next adventure with this Eye Mask + Neck Wrap Bundle, proudly made by hand right here in our own studio! He can even add a few drops of cedar + patchouli essential oil for a really transportive experience.

The Eight Dad

The Type Eight Dad always has your back. Get his now with this stunner of a handmade Cappuccino Mug, the perfect weight and heft for his morning coffee. Even better? Whip up his favorite coffee and serve it to him with a sweet card that tells him how much you love him (that’s all he really wants, anyways).

The Type Nine Dad

The Type Nine Dad is a gentle, peaceful presence in his kids’ lives, and he loves bringing flavors together in the kitchen as much as he loves bringing people together! Help him make his time in the kitchen even more joyful with a few kitchen herbs of his very own (try oregano or basil or parsley that he can snip as he cooks), a locally infused olive oil, and a gourmet flavored vinegar.
