Father’s Day Gift Guide at Terranea

Father’s Day is quickly approaching; time to finish shopping! 

Written by Elena Qualls, Director of Retail at Terranea Resort

Every Father’s Day I buy my Dad a gift card to his favorite BBQ restaurant. If you’re like me, and think maybe it is time to get a little more creative, our shops at Terranea have something for every man, from swim trunks to cuff links. Let’s go shopping!

Our first stop after we grab our coffee at sea beans is marea, a luxury boutique featuring contemporary lines for the whole family. Our men’s shop within marea often takes our guests by surprise; they come into the store for women’s apparel or kid’s toys and discover well-curated lines of high quality casual and California fashion inspired items for men.  One of my favorite new lines to hit our shelves is Rodd & Gunn, a New Zealand based menswear line that prides itself on pieces that can be both relaxed and authentic. The heritage of the line dates back to 1946, when the brand’s trademark logo, the English Pointer, was used on a boutique line of New Zealand made shirts. Rodd & Gunn is famous for traditionally tailored shirts, high quality knitwear, pants that really fit, classic polo shirts, Italian leather shoes, and stylish accessories. 

Next stop on the front drive is pointe discovery. If your dad is like mine and loves a great outdoor adventure, pointe discovery is the perfect one-stop shop for laid back casual clothing and active wear. I love Southern California based active-surf line Vuori, founded right down the coast in Encinitas, CA. Vuori, which is a Finnish word meaning mountain, is all about merging high performance clothing with a West Coast aesthetic that looks and fits great. Whether your dad was born and raised at the beach, or would love to take a piece of SoCal inspired fashion home with him, Vuori makes the perfect thoughtful gift for any active guy.

Other great gift options at pointe discovery are the featured brands that “give back.” We promote many local brands that work with charities to give back a portion of proceeds to those in need. Tom’s Sunglasses and Shoes are an easy go-to gift with a great give-back story. For every pair of shoes purchased, Toms will donate a pair to a child in need. Every pair of eyewear purchased helps restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, glasses, or medical treatment. Nothing better than giving a gift while giving back.

Our last stop before we grab lunch at Nelson’s is the serene shop at the Spa. Don’t forget, your Dad works hard and deserves to relax! Pair a gift card for a massage with an easy go-to gift from men’s skincare line Jack Black. The line features shaving creams, moisturizers, grooming sets, cleaners, and sun care. We even made it easier for you! The Spa carries pre-packaged gift sets including the Purescience Jet Set Traveler kit ($25, a $45 value) and the Beard Grooming kit ($35, a $42 value). The Purescience Jet Set Traveler kit is perfect for the dad on-the-go, containing three skin essentials: cleanser, shaving cream, and moisturizer. The Beard Grooming kit makes caring for his beard easy! This four step grooming routine will leave his skin and facial hair looking fresh just in time for Father’s Day brunch at Catalina Kitchen.

Still can’t decide what to get? Spend Father’s Day at Terranea and shop one of our trunk shows to let him decide. marea will host a trunk show featuring Kenton Michael men’s jewelry, with an appearance by the designer himself! pointe discovery will host a Tom’s shoes trunk show, perfect for Dad to pick out his favorite pair.

No time to shop? Personal shopping is available to help you select your gifts ahead of time. Contact marea at 310-265-2850 for more information.

Wishing you and all the men in your life a very Happy Father’s Day!
