Father’s Day is around the corner. If you haven’t thought of something to gift your dad, do not panic. We have come up with a list of 10 gift ideas and purchase suggestions to help you out. Some will be perfect for last-day purchases but others will only work if you have a couple of days to prepare.
Here we go.
Personalized Engraved Watch
A classic and timeless gift that can be customized with your dad’s initials or a special message. You can get a piece with a generic message on Amazon or turn to a local physical engraver shop in a last-ditch effort. If you have the time, consider online shops like Fossil.com or independent sellers on Etsy.com.
Portable Bluetooth Speaker
While perfect for the music-loving dad who enjoys listening to his favorite tunes wherever he goes, it will even be better for your off-grid enthusiastic dad who is mostly at an off-grid cabin running on limited power. The rechargeable speaker should have a decent battery life and be handy in other tasks like charging their phone too.
If they already have cordless Dewalt power tools, this speaker will be quite handy.
Gourmet Coffee or Tea Set
If your dad is a coffee or tea enthusiast, a high-quality set of specialty coffee or tea blends can be a delightful gift. This will not only be useful but also classic decor especially if you can match it to the design of their cabin or man cave.
For the dad who loves to grill, consider a set of premium grilling tools, a cookbook with new recipes, or a grilling apron. Grilling is a great way to pass time while off the grid. Firing up the Blackstone to whip up a simple but delicious meal can be therapeutic. Gifting them accessories that will make this easier will be very thoughtful.
If your dad is into fitness or wants to stay active, a fitness tracker can help him monitor his progress and reach his goals.
DIY Home Brewing Kit
If your dad enjoys craft beer, a DIY home brewing kit can be a fun and unique gift that allows him to make his own brews at home. This will be very handy in creating the sense of self-sustenance people going off-grid yearn for.
Leather Wallet or Money Clip
A stylish and practical gift, a high-quality leather wallet or money clip can be personalized and will last for years.
Consider a subscription box tailored to your dad’s interests, such as a monthly book subscription, a grooming box from groomboxss.com, or a gourmet food box. Subscription boxes are perfect since you can just tell them of the subscription on Father’s Day and have them wait for the delivery day. Great if you didn’t get a gift on time
Outdoor Adventure Gear
If your dad loves outdoor activities like camping or hiking, consider gifting him a durable backpack, a camping hammock, or a quality multi-tool.
Experience or Workshop
Instead of a physical gift, treat your dad to a memorable experience, such as a hot air balloon ride, a cooking class, or tickets to a concert or sporting event. This is perfect if you are on a short deadline and can find an opening locally.
