Remember when you were a kid and the gifts most appreciated by your parents were always the handmade ones? Maybe it was a crayon drawing, a birdhouse or an apron with your handprints – you knew that the thoughtfulness and love that went into your gift made it extra special.
At Walnut Studiolo, everything is made with thoughtfulness and love. With Father’s Day right around the corner, we decided to put together a roundup of perfect Father’s Day gift ideas for just about any Dad. We have bicycling and beer accessories, of course, but also our new travel games and even some great gift ideas for Dad to use at home or on the go.
If you live in a rainy area, this is a truly practical and indispensable gift that any Cyclist Dad will appreciate. Our handcrafted mud flaps made from American leather come in a “road” style for road bikes and “classic” style for wider tires.
$44 Bicycle Frame Handle (“The Little Lifter“) –
Blow Dad’s mind with this great bike frame carrier – it makes carrying a bike as easy as carrying a briefcase. The bicycle frame handle was the cycling accessory that we launched on Kickstarter and this bicycle carrier has remained a best-seller ever since. The Museum of Modern Art even recognized the brilliance of its design by including it in the Design Store!
$34 6-Pack Frame Cinch –
What is it about bicycling and beer that makes such a wonderful combination? Our ever-popular frame cinch gives Dad a way to tote his 6-pack of brew from the market, around town or to a favorite cycling destination. This 6 pack carrier, too, seems to have limitless applications and can be used for kayak paddles, fishing poles or an umbrella, among other uses. Pair it with our durable leather and wood 6-pack holder for a complete set.
