Father’s Day is obviously a big deal for us here at Classic Dad.
But we think we speak for many dads when we say that we’re kind of disappointed with the lack of creativity behind most Father’s Day gifts. The second-least-expensive tie at JCPenny? That’s going to be worn once, at most.
Instead of sitting around and complaining about the sorry state of Father’s Day gifting, we figured we should set out to do something about it. So here are 8 Father’s Day gift ideas way better than some boring old tie.
Norlan Glass For Whiskey (2 for $48)
Fifty bucks is a lot to spend on two whiskey glasses, but if your dad likes a good bourbon or scotch (he does), he’s going to get an obscene amount of use out of these uniquely designed glasses. They’re hand-blown and designed to enhance the aroma and flavor of the enclosed whiskey, while the doubled-glass design prevents the whiskey from being overly warmed by your hands in the course of drinking.
Your dad already has whiskey stones. Take that next step and get him the ultimate whiskey glass.
Tabletop Cornhole ($45)
Every dad has long since mastered the art of Cornhole. But indoor Cornhole?
Not only does dad not have an idea this exists, the moment he realizes what it is, he’ll wonder how he went so long without an indoor Cornhole game of his own. This is a real game-changer of a gift.
Kammock Roo Hammock ($87.76)
Your dad’s hammock game can surely be upgraded. He’s probably got the same old yarn hammock that he’s had for 10 years.
So if you want to spend a little extra cash, get the Kammock Roo camping hammock. It’s light, portable, and resistant to all sorts of wear and tear. Dad’s lazy Sundays are about to get a whole lot lazier.
Yes, we’re going to plug our own shirts. Our website. Our rules. But also, with more than 30 designs to choose from, we’ve got you covered, whether your dad is a griller, lawn guy, jokester or any of the above. Check out the store now.
A Variety of Regional Barbecue Sauces ($30)
Dads are gonna grill, so why not give them a little something to spice up their barbecue game? This set from Williams Sonoma can let dad make his own Texas, Memphis and Kansas City-style barbecue, and really decide what style he prefers.
A Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kit ($35)
If your dad likes hot sauce, he really likes hot sauce. And if he really likes hot sauce, he’s going to really geek out over this kit that lets him make his own hot sauce in the comfort of his own home.
This kit provides ingredients and instructions to make six different hot sauces out of five different possible chiles. Your dad’s chili will never be the same.
A Cheap Homebrew Kit ($43)
Assuming your dad has not already become a homebrew dad, this kit is the perfect Father’s Day gift. It’s a relatively simple, beginners-friendly approach to making beer at home.
Once your dad finishes his first gallon of beer, he’s going to be hooked. So be warned, while dads will love this gift, there’s a good chance that it’ll create a homebrewing monster.
Bottle Opening Coasters ($25)
Brewing beer is fun, but so is drinking it while protecting hardwood surfaces.
These handy dual-purpose coasters speak every dad’s language. It allows dad to crack open the next brew right on the table, while also ensuring that there’ll be no rings that will need to be sanded buffed and varnished out.
Dads are likely to get excited about a good set of coasters on their own, but once you flip these babies over and show their hidden talents, you’ll be winning Father’s Day for sure.
But of course, the most important gift for every father this Father’s Day is easy to find. Because it’s the love of a caring family. Oh wait, sorry, we misspelled whiskey. A bottle of whiskey always works too.
