When preparing our annual Fathers Day gift guide, there were several things we crossed off the list immediately. Ties? Don’t even think about ’em! Ties are not fun! Besides, who wears ties anymore? Socks? Ditto. Even worse.
And just as much as Mom hates getting home maintenance gifts (vacuum, dust buster, etc.), we know that Dad is not a fan of outdoor maintenance gifts. Even tools are a downer, because they make him think of more work — the opposite of fun.
Fun is the keyword we wanted to use when trying to come up with the ideal Father’s Day gift — something that Dad really wants is something he can have fun with, whether he’s eating it, drinking it, reading it or simply messing around with it. Give him any one of these super selections from our annual Fathers Day gift guide, and you’ll be his favorite all year long!
Really Rather’s Annual Fathers Day Gift Guide
Thai Moon Knife
What dad doesn’t love chopping things? This knife makes it special. Each Thai Moon Knife, named for its shape, is made of carbon steel, cut and sharpened to traditional standards. This chef’s knife was traditionally used for cutting pork in the markets; it even cuts through bone. It’s a dream for cutting through any meat or bone, as well as hard-skinned fruit, like watermelon and coconut. The hefty knife comes in it’s own wooden box, for excellent presentation.
The Ultimate Crypto Explainer
Dads love to feel like they understand everything, but this new crypto stuff… it’s hard to wrap your head around. We didn’t get it either, until we read crypto guru Jake Ryan’s Crypto Asset Investing in the Age of Autonomy: The Complete Handbook to Building Wealth in the Next Digital Revolution. We know the title is a tough one, but believe us, once Dad reads it, he’ll finally be clued in with insider information on what’s behind it all—and after he finishes it, you may want to read it as well.
Most dads love sweets, but it somehow doesn’t feel right to present him with a box of See’s Chocolates on Fathers Day. So we recommend more manly gift boxes from Delysia Chocolateirs, like the Gentlemen’s Gift Box, which contains truffles with Scotch, Bourbon, and Rum; pecan cayenne bark; S’mores chocolate bark and cigar solid molded chocolates. ($74.95). Or for something a little crazier, how about the Salt Lick BBQ sauce truffle collection, which includes chocolate truffles blended with famous Salt Lick BBQ sauce, adding in flavors like mustard, vinegar, chipotle peppers, smoke and spice. ($25.95) Seriously dying to try these.
Help your dad find his glasses and make him smile and think of you every time he does, which is probably, like about 10 times per day. This white porcelain face planter comes with a perch for glasses and ready for you to draw on your dad’s smile, bushy eyebrows, beard, etc. Since it comes with a hole in the bottom, as most good planters do, we recommend you get an artificial plant to stick in there, so it won’t make a mess on his desk when he waters it. Pure fun!
Beer Brewing Kit
Brewferm’s home brewing kits make crafting Dad’s favorite Belgium drafts easy, taking the guesswork out of his glass. Each kit comes with all the equipment you need to clean, ferment, and cap your pints, as well as all the ingredients carefully premeasured and ready to brew. Simply add sugar and water and then follow the instructions.
