HOMBRE Father’s Day Gift Guide: Give An EXPERIENCE
This year, instead of giving dad a gift, give him an experience. A chance to travel, enjoying quality time, or a day of pampering. From a golf getaway to Punta Mita, Mexico, to ziplining in California, to a sip & shave at Casa Buchanan’s in New York, to a dinner cruise in Miami. The experiences below offer the perfect setting for bonding with Dad and creating unforgettable memories.
PUNTA MITA, MEXICO
Father’s Day “Spirits Savour” Experience at The St. Regis
This Father’s Day, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is offering a healthier and innovative take on wine and smoke to celebrate beloved dads around the world with its “Spirits Savour” experience:
Spirits Savour will allow guests to relax on their own terrace and enjoy Punta Mita’s breathtaking ocean views, while enjoying a wine tasting using a Wine Wand by the resort’s expert sommelier. The Wine Wand is revolutionary in that it absorbs histamines, removes sulfite preservatives and reduces significantly headaches associated with drinking wine, while Shishas provide all the pleasure of smoking without the side effects of nicotine. The tasting will be accompanied by a refined “Shisha cocktail” created by blending fresh fruit, herbs and spices to be smoked in a hookah. This special amenity will be offered at$95 per person.
Set amidst a spectacular coastal setting, surrounded by azure water and white sand beaches, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort features 120 exquisitely appointed guestrooms and suites, three infinity pools with private cabanas, three world-class restaurants, an outstanding line-up of recreation facilities, including two Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, and St. Regis’ personalized services and amenities, including 24-hour concierge, room service and the legendary St. Regis Butler Service. For the dad who wants to experience true barefoot luxury this Father’s Day, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort is the ideal destination.

Ziplining Through The Forrest
Ziplines at Pacific Crest has the perfect gift for any Dad, whether he’s into sports or museums. How about celebrating the man of the house with a thrilling adventure in majestic forest canopies 300-feet about the ground?
The owner and operator of world-class zipline courses in the San Gabriel mountains, Ziplines at Pacific Crest delivers an unforgettable non-traditional option for Father’s Day. Just imagine the ear-to-ear grin as he flies through air in a nature-filled experience that showcases the breathtaking beauty of the San Gabriel Mountains, just 75 miles northeast of Los Angeles and near the popular Mountain High winter resort.
Featuring two high-adventure zipline courses with multiple zips, the tours are entirely tree-based and use innovative design and installations to minimize environmental impact while maximizing safety. The picturesque location also is on a portion of the 300-acre Guest Ranch at Pacific Crest property and retreat, which is a stunning backdrop and picnic setting for a Father’s Day like no other.

CASA BUCHANAN’S Sip & Shave
Dads deserve pampering too, and nothing is more indulgent than the comforts of the traditional barbershop and a sip of a Blended Scotch Whisky.
What better way to bond with the special man in your life than offering him a gentlemen’s experience that includes a complimentary grooming service (choose from a hot shave, beard trim, or haircut) courtesy of Buchanan’s Scotch Whisky.
You and dad will also enjoy sipping the award-winning Buchanan’s Special Reserve, a blend of 15 unique whiskies aged for a minimum of 18 years, offered neat or on-the-rocks, hors d’oeuvres, and the latest Latin hits with a live DJ set.
