Father’s Day Gifts Ideas that Fuel Dad’s Hobbies
Nothing says happy father’s day like a gift for dad that lets him indulge in his favorite hobbies.
Whether they spend the summer coaching their favorite baseball teams from the comfort of their recliners, or creating a backyard oasis that will make the neighbors jealous, dads deserve gifts that will help them in their favorite pursuits. Here are a few gift ideas that will make sure everyone knows he’s the king of his castle this father’s day.
Gifts for Outdoor Dads
Is Dad a lawn and landscape expert? Does he insist on manning the grill at every family cookout? Surprise the outdoor-loving dads in your life with gifts just for them.
New Outdoor Power Equipment
Give Dad the gift of the best lawn on the block with new outdoor power equipment. Trimmer-edger combos make it easy to switch from weed-whacking along the fence to edging along the sidewalk. Hedge trimmers help keep the yews and boxwoods perfectly manicured. And don’t forget a handheld or backpack blower to quickly clean up all the clippings! Looking for bonus points? How about adding a satisfying pressure-washer to his outdoor tool collection?
High Quality Grill Tools
From spatulas to scouring bars, every grillmaster needs the perfect tool set. A hard-sided case with new a grill-safe spatula, tongs, fork, and basting brush will make sure Dad has all the equipment he needs for his next barbecue. Don’t forget a high-quality heat-safe glove, new skewers, and a basket for grilling fish or vegetables. Present it all on a nice tray or cutting board, and he’ll be ready to execute a three-course meal right from the back yard.
Gifts for Dad’s At-Home Bar
If your home’s basement or den is dedicated to dad’s love of the game, or is a space for quiet relaxation, these bar accessories make great gifts.
Personalized Pint Glasses
Pint glasses are a must for any basement bar, wet bar, or sports bar setup. Dozens of online options give you a chance to customize a set of glasses with Dad’s favorite team, his name, or the family name. Pair them with a complementary set of coasters and a 6-pack of his favorite brew (ice cold, of course). Who knows – he might even share one with you!
Bar Cart Accessories
Every bartender – even an ametuer – should have a full complement of bar tools at the ready. Compile a set yourself, or look for kits that contain the basics like a shaker, strainer, jigger, muddler, and stirrer. Peelers, zesters, and ice tongs are fun accessories to add that finishing touch. Don’t forget a book of classic cocktail recipes – but whatever you do, don’t call dad “Old Fashioned.”
Gifts for Dad’s Next (Ahem) Bathroom Break
Moms may like to create a spa-like retreat in the bathroom, but dads deserves some bathroom indulgences too.
Whether he opts for a full beard, a neat trim, or goes clean-shaven, every man has his own facial hair preferences. Numerous companies are bringing back the art of shaving, and are incorporating everything from classic shaving brushes and straight razors to soaps with all-natural ingredients and essential oils. Treat dad to a professional shave at a classic barber shop, complete with a straight razor and a warm towel, or choose a kit that lets him personalize his shave at home.
Dad shouldn’t have to wrap up in a too-small towel after his shower. Spring for a new set of bath sheets for the dads in your life. Anywhere from 30% to 50% bigger than standard bath towels, bath sheets will cover any bather more easily, and give a luxurious touch. If you have extra time, use it to have the towels monogrammed so Dad always has his very own towel at hand.
For dads that like to keep a sense of bathroom humor, there are plenty of toilet-friendly joke books and bathroom décor to add that special touch to the throne room. Try a Squatty Potty, personalized TP, or other #2 novelties for the #1 dad in your life.
