If you’ve been stuck in the grilling and tie rut for the past few Father’s Day, here are some suggestions for this upcoming June 20th.
For the man in your life who enjoys his spirits, try these Eisch Vino Nobile Breathable Multi-Purpose Red or White Wine Glasses. A wine poured into a breathable glass for just 2 to 4 minutes will show signs of aeration equivalent to the same wine that has been decanted and aerated for 1 to 2 hours. For hard liquor, specifically bourbon or whiskey, try these fantastic whiskey stones that keep your drink cold and neat without ever getting watery. “Have drinks with a cool story to tell” with these great recycled windshield beer or wine glasses. I’m also a huge fan of the book Barguments: a debate with no right or wrong answer that must be uncomplicated enough to discuss after three beers.
Got a sport’s enthusiast? Gift him 4 crazy golf balls that each do something ludicrous when you hit them; one blows up into a spectacular cloud of billowing white dust, one basically vanishes on impact into a watery mist, one ejects 15 feet of spiralling streaming ribbon when thwacked, and the last one simply won’t go in a straight line on the green. If he loves hoops then get him a picture frame, mirror or wall shelf all made from reclaimed gym floor decor. The cyclist? Check out this modern bike chain business card holder or if his sport is more mental, check out this LED light up chess set.
Have a funny fella in your life? Personalize a “The Man-The Myth-The Legend” hat for him. For some informative bathroom reading, check out the classic What’s Your Poo Telling You? or if he fancies himself a bad mother f*&%$!, this Pulp Fiction wallet will let others know as well.
Finally, for Mr. Fix It, check out this great Contractor Pen that is the hardest working gift around. This multi-use contractor tool features level and plumb bubbles, drywall and and angle gauges, a ruler, a magnetic strip and mini-pen holder. The MagnoGrip is a magnetic wristband guaranteed to securely hold nails, screws, drill bits, fasteners and tools. And if all else fails … head for the duct tape as it really can be used for everything including this great Duct tape wallet.
