Father’s Day is right around the corner. On Sunday June 15th, you had better have something good to gift a father in your life. Fortunately, there are no shortage of gift options for Father’s Day. No matter the type of individual–from rugged sportsman to technology geek, great gifts are an expression of someone’s personality. The concept of a manly gift can mean different things to different types of people, but in many instances interests interconnect when it comes to gifts and one type of item can easily relate to another lifestyle interest or pursuit. Here are a few ‘manly’ Father’s Day gift ideas.
Nothing says summer fun like barbecues. Grills are great Father’s Day gifts as both a way to encourage these outdoor summer events and give the gift of grilled food. If dad already has a grill, it may be a good time to upgrade; if not, you’ll need to make an important judgement call: charcoal or gas. The choice of heat source for the grill is personal preference since some people swear by one or the other. In general, gas grills heat faster, cook food faster, and are easily shut off and cleaned. Charcoal takes longer to heat, cook, and can be messy cleaning. The preference for charcoal largely comes down to taste and affordability of grills. Gas grills can be considerably more expensive than charcoal and require dealing with propane gas. There are many high quality grills of both varieties available and they make great Father’s Day gifts.
This encompases a wide range of items, but active lifestyle goods are great Father’s Day gifts. Equipment for everything from hunting and fishing to basketball or kickboxing makes great gifts and encourages enjoyable pursuits. Maybe dad needs a new kayak or a punching bag. Nothing shows appreciation like facilitating a favorite pastime activity. Even activities like ping pong, table hockey, foosball, and pool qualify as good Father’s Day gift items under the sporting goods category. Game tables and components are all nice gift options for the competitive gaming type.
Movies and Games
Nothing says manly Father’s Day gift like some movies or video games, or both. For the gamer, gifting the latest Xbox or Playstation game is a great idea. While you’re shopping for the perfect game or movie, you may even consider upgrading the entertainment center. A new flat screen television or speaker set accompany movies and games even better. Flat screen televisions are cheap and high quality these days and upgrading to a new, larger model is a great Father’s Day option for the film buff and gamer. Make the gift a package deal and score even more points with dad this year.
