What do you get a great dude like dad? The sky is the limit, obviously, when you’re trying to show an important guy in your life your appreciation for all the time, support, and tough love he’s shown you or your kiddos over the years! We took a trip to do some shopping for our favorite father figures. Take a look at our top five gift ideas for Father’s Day this year!
TREAT HIM TO SOMETHING SAVORY
What do you get the guy who has everything? One word: consumables. And the hottest food-themed gift these days is created with your favorite carnivore in mind. We love the build-your-own-box of jerkies at Beef Jerky Outlet! From grass-fed beef to wild game, with every spice and flavor known to man, this huge meat shop is the perfect stop to make and has other fun stuff as well like novelty shirts and free samples!
HELP HIM SHOW OFF HIS SMARTS BEYOND BOOKS
We can’t skip Books-A-Million when we have a gift-giving opportunity! And this time around, they did not disappoint. They make it easy with great selections of books, bibles and gift items for men of faith; maps, atlases, guidebooks and survival kits for the outdoor dad; as well as hilarious “dad joke” books, novelty items and gag gifts for the goofy dad. Don’t forget BAM’s enormous selection of best-selling titles, including the nonfiction, history and literature your dad will love to read.
GET HIM IN TOUCH WITH HIS VACATION VIBES
Whether you’re taking a big trip with dad this summer or not, check out the surprisingly laid-back looks at Brooks Brothers Factory Store! We are loving the tropical print button downs, beach bags, and everything with pineapples on it!
HELP HIM BE FASHION FORWARD
If you’re looking to treat dad, consider investing in a sleek designer item from one of Legends Outlets’ luxe brands like the Coach Outlet. You can make a big impression on him without breaking the bank with Coach’s handsome line of travel accessories that fit inside your budget and inside a gift bag! We are loving their luxurious assortment of leather valet trays and travel accessories. Our favorite is the large zipper pouch that comes in a ton of manly prints and would work great inside his gym bag or suitcase!
TAKE HIM ON A DAD-DATE
Never underestimate the thoughtfulness of giving someone you love the gift of your time together. Bonus points if it includes food and drinks! Our favorite spots to eat, drink and be merry with dad this summer include Granite City for their high-end food and stellar brewery, Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque for their quintessential KC BBQ experience, Stix for their pan-Asian teppanyaki grill, sushi and Chinese cuisine, and Yard House for their patio seating and self-proclaimed world’s largest selection of draft beer. Surprise dad with a day or night out or let him pick the place. Either way, you’re both sure to have a blast!
Whatever you decide to do for dad, do it with style when you pick a thoughtful gift or gesture!
