Great Gifts for Father’s Day
June 8, 2016
Father’s Day is right around the corner! Finding the perfect gift to tell your dad “thank you” and how much you care for him can be a challenge. While the internet and local retailers are stocked with many great items, where can you go to find that perfect gift especially for your dad? Sure, you’ve done the classic gift of a coffee mug, so why not try something different this Father’s Day? Put a twist on a classic gift with a newly updated one. We have put together a list of some creative, and often overlooked top Father’s Day gifts. Enjoy!
One of the things my dad loves is coffee. Really good coffee. He wakes up every morning and brews his perfect cup. If your dad is like mine he would enjoy using this French press coffee from Crate and Barrel. A French press is easy to use and does not take up much space on the kitchen counter. It can even be stored away! All you need is coffee beans, a grinder, and hot water. Three easy ingredients. Just envision your dad enjoying his freshly brewed cup of French pressed coffee on a Sunday morning.
If your dad is a guy who loves the outdoors, whether he is fishing, hunting, boating, or golfing, a Yeti cooler is another great gift to give. You can even personalize it to your dad. Add his college logo, favorite sports team, or nickname to the cooler. These coolers are durable and easy to use for many outdoor activities. Easy to throw in the back of the truck and start an adventure off right. Up your dad’s game with a Yeti cooler and matching Colster or Rambler cup.
Golf is a traditional gift on Father’s Day. While giving your dad a round of golf might seem like a classic gift, there are ways to put a modern twist on it. If there is a golf course he has wanted to play, this is the time to surprise him. Give him a round for four so he can invites some friends. A gift for your dad should always be something he enjoys. Our very own Panther Run at Del Webb Naples offers online specials. Click here to view. Add on a lesson with the course pro and it will be a day he won’t forget.
If your dad loves to fish, a fishing charter is an ideal gift for him. But not just any charter, take the time to research a local guide and design the ultimate charter just for your dad. Include a surprise lunch by packing a picnic and cooler and delivering it the morning of the charter. This can sometimes be a more expensive gift, but if you have siblings then suggest you share the cost. Ave Maria is near many great fishing destinations including Naples and Sanibel/Captiva.
Does your dad like to grill a great steak or the perfect burger? Why not surprise him with a personal “grill” lesson from a local chef along with a gift bag including a meat thermometer, new tongs, and cookbook? This is a great personalized gift for any dad.
Love nature? Love off-roading? Try Orange Jeep tours in southwest Florida. Adventure guides roam off-road through private preserves spotting animals and plants in their natural habitat. Your dad can bring along friends, or you can join him! This is a great gift for an adventurous dad and Orange Jeep Tours offers a Father’s Day promotion throughout June.
We wish all the fathers out there a happy and wonderful Father’s Day from our families to yours!
