Father?s Day is Sunday (cue panic!), and finding a thoughtful gift for the man who has everything is trickier than ever.
A suggestion: Visit a glassybaby boutique in Presidio Heights or Palo Alto, where you can shop for a set of handblown glassware inspired by your old man?s favorite drink.
The Seattle-based company is best known for its rainbow of glowing votives (Martha Stewart is a fan). But the collection of beverage glasses called ?drinkers? is what you?re after. The glasses come in a spectacular range of colors, and each hue is named after a drink, from a warm amber single malt to a green-tinged vermouth to a brilliant blue mezcal.
Your dad (or any giftee, for that matter) will appreciate that 10 percent from every ?drinker? sale is donated to the San Francisco Department of Veterans Affairs. (To date, the company has donated a whopping $3 million-plus to worthy causes.)
So get yourself to a glassybaby location and do right by your dad.
