Father’s Day 2017: Gift Ideas

At ULAH, we understand that men are multi-dimensional. In fact, we based our men’s apparel and lifestyle store concept on the realization that most of the men we know do many or most of these six activities in any given week:

  1. Works Hard
  2. Plays Often
  3. Stays Active
  4. Enjoys the Journey
  5. Shows He Cares
  6. Gives Back

This year, we thought we’d share our ULAH Father’s Day gift ideas with those lifestyle activities in mind:

Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Filson

If you have one of those of guys to shop for who has everything, consider Filson bags, wallets, or watches. Filson is a legacy brand that has been making top quality leather, wool, and canvas goods since 1897. In fact, they still keep their manufacturing here at home in the United States, and have been creating rugged products with real brass hardware in Seattle since their conception. One of our personal favorites is the 24 Hour Tin Briefcase, which I carry to ULAH every day — packed with my gym shoes and clothes, laptop, and notepads. Stop by ULAH in Woodside Village and see which of the Filson products fits your man’s needs.

Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Masculine Candles

Many people may be surprised at the popularity of candles among men. More and more men are buying candles with masculine scents. Early in our development, we wanted to make our own line of masculine candles — so we partnered with local duo Wood + Wick to help create our first evolving line of candles. We named it the Boyhood Collection, inspired by memories that ULAH co-owner Buck Wimberly had as a child. He felt that others would resonate with the memories and scents.

“In my early years, I grew up in the plains of rural West Texas. I remember the baseball games, the classic small-town barbershop experiences, and being fascinated with tumbleweeds. As I grew into my teens while living in the Kansas City area, some of my favorite memories were camping and going on float trips with friends.” – Buck Wimberly

You can find these candles — and many other great holiday gifts for men — in KC’s new men’s apparel and lifestyle store, ULAH, owned by Buck Wimberly and Joey Mendez.

OUTFIELDER – Whether you practiced out in the field, or sat on the bench to watch your friends play — our combination of fresh cut grass and worn leather will stir up memories of America’s most nostalgic sport.

BARBERSHOP – Leather, cardamom, vanilla, and plum will remind you of sitting in the barber’s chair smelling the scent of tonics and pomades as you were getting a fresh clean cut.

TUMBLEWEED – Notes of sandalwood and grass make this scent reminiscent of the dry westerly winds that often blow tumbleweeds across the plains of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

PUP TENT – Pine, clove, and wood smoke notes will take you back to those memorable trips with friends and family — gathering around the campfire and telling stories before you slept the night away in the middle of the woods.

FLOAT TRIP – Patchouli, amber, clove, sandalwood, smoke, saffron, whiskey, and hickory combine to stir up memories of floating down the river for hours with friends before heading back to camp.
