Whatever you do, don't panic. Father's Day is this Sunday, and even if you've read other excellent advice on the subject, sometimes the best way to pick out a present is to simply go to the right place and get inspired. 

2424 W. Alabama St.,

No matter what your budget, this Upper Kirby institution should always be on your gifting radar. Splurge on a contemporary clock or a Paul Smith tie, or surprise him with a Texas cookbook (or candle!), Jack Black bath products (they smell like an energizing walk through the forest) or a $15 brass tie bar.

In addition to their everyday collectionof great menswear, for Father's Day look for apothecary awesomeness from Manready Mercantile, whimsical cufflinks, colorful socks (H.W. would approve) not to mention all the leather goods that dads love.

6102 Westheimer Rd.; 3900 Bissonnet Dr.,

When you give a man a grill or a cooler, what you're really giving him is an excuse to go outside. And possibly to cook some meat for you. Just saying.

321 W. 19th St.,

When it comes to buying dad gifts, there's no need to reinvent the wheel here. The ties are made of chambray, the cologne is called "Cowboy Grass" and the razor is is a straight razor with a carbon fiber handle, all  of which are way too cool to be cliches. (The razor will run you $895, but there's always the badger hair brush or an organic shave cream for the rest of us.)

1435 Westheimer Rd.,

Biscuit is pretty adorable, and that's not always the word we associate with stores dad will like, but in this case interests across the spectrum are represented, whether its astronomy, golf, travel, Houston rap or drinking in style.
