Indoor-Outdoor Gifts for Dad!

This is the year to focus on gifts for Dad that make sense for a safer-at-home kind of holiday celebration. From outdoor gifts that he’ll use all summer long, to prezzies that make his life easier, healthier, more fun and more comfortable! Whether he’s a BBQ kind of guy, or handy with a hammer, here are some ideas for Father’s Day gifts that he’ll want to keep!

Grillin’ N Chillin’ Gifts for Dad

Kebabs are a great way to grill two food groups together, but until now the skewers made the process a little more labor intensive. Now Uncommon Goods has created these kebab baskets that let your BBQ papa fill them with raw meat and/or veggies reducing prep time and making grilling that much easier and enjoyable. 

For the meat eater who likes — or is curious about — the taste of small and big game (from lamb and rabbits, to venison and wild boar) get that dad the game sausage sampler from D’Artagnan. For $35 you can have five different varieties shipped directly to the front door for a substantial and filling Father’s Day.  

Then there’s the Long Range Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer. Dad can put a flank steak on the barbie, insert the thermometer with two different sensors to monitor the internal and external temperatures simultaneously. The app is available for both iOS and Android smart phones and tables, and will walk him through every step of the cooking process to perfect results!

If your dad is a wine connoisseur, you can sign him up for a wine club like Firstleaf. For $50, the Firstleaf club will assess his preferences and mail him bottles of wine that match. If he’s more of a craft beer aficionado, perhaps the Draft Pour Beer Dispenser would be more to his liking. From Fizzics, this apparatus is an at-home tap that’ll make his beer taste all fresh and bubbly – just like it would at his favorite pub.

And for an add-on, consider the Hydro Flask, a 12-ounce cooler into which he can pop his favorite glass, or can or bottle of brewski.

Handymen and McGyver Types

If the dad in your life is always undertaking another home improvement project, a digital tape measure with memory storage and conversion capabilities will save him time and hassle. It’s called the eTape16 and is super accurate and great for residential projects.

If he needs a new tool belt, get him a customized creation from Etsy. With five pockets for his five favorite and most needed tools, this embossed leather belt is a huge step up from any canvass cousins.

If your dad likes having all the tools he could ever want or need in his hip pocket, get him the brand new 21-tool Leatherman. Seriously, who wouldn’t want one of these nifty multi-purpose gadgets? The list is endless: needle nose and regular pliers, wire cutters, two knives – one serrated, scissors, a saw, pry tool, package opener, a can opener, wire stripper, awl, bottle opener, electrical crimper, four different screwdrivers, a rule and a wood/metal file, whew! It’s $139, but has a special offer right now for $15 off.

Uniquely Him 

If a better desk chair is an item your work-from-home dad needs, look at these reviews of the top ergonomic office chairs according to chiropractors and an orthopedic surgeon. Or get him a Gaiam Balance Disc that will help him engage his core while sitting, and keep his posture straighter during the day.

Is your dad a mushroom lover? Does he order extra ‘shrooms on pizzas and burgers, or crams them in a skillet, sautés in butter, and forks them straight out of the pan? Check out this Shiitake Log Kit. He can grow his own to cook year-round without have to make a trip to buy or forage!

For the dad who needs a massage after sitting all day in even the most comfortable office chair, check out this handheld back massager. With five different attachments or nodes, the micro vibration massage can be used in face, neck or fragile areas of the body, or give deep, full body massages to the back, foot, arm, leg, shoulder, thigh, etc. 

Is your dad a dog lover? Get him a customized planter from Etsy with his beloved canine’s resemblance. Is he a perpetual learner? From business and entertainment to cooking and photography, this Masterclass gift pass enables him to sit at the feet of his most-admired expert, or sign up for the class he’s always wanted to take.
