It’s almost Father’s Day again! Oh what to get Dad (or your husband) this year. It’s always a challenge to find the perfect gift isn’t it? He usually says “Oh, I don’t need anything” and then proceeds to grill his own dinner anyway. Well the dad in your life (it could be your husband too) deserves a little gratitude and something he might not think to get for himself. That’s what it’s all about right? So here are some picks we think you should consider. Here is our Father’s Day Gift Guide…
What Dad doesn’t love meat? Now he can have this delicious grass-fed jerky in cool flavors to nosh on. The Mango Habanero is my personal favorite. You can also head over to their site at countryarcher.com to order gift boxes if you want to really go there. Or we are giving away a Road Trip Pack right now on our Instagram! instagram.com/fountainof30/.
Does Dad have a sense of humor and loves his coffee hot at all times? Here you go. The BigMouth Inc Coffee and a Donut USB Mug Warmer simply plugs into his laptop. It’s a lot healthier than an actual donut anyway.
3. Papyrus Boss Dad Mug, $16.95
I picked this one because it’s the perfect gift from little kids and will rest nicely on the mug warmer pictured above. I know it’s obvious but what Dad wouldn’t love this mug from his kids?
4. AliveCor Kardia Mobile, $99
I’m going to get serious here for a second because I so would have given this to my Dad if he were still alive. The Kardia Mobile smartphone attachment is smaller than a credit card and allows users to take EKG readings anywhere in 30 seconds. It helps detect AFib, the leading cause of stroke, and gives a full picture of physical activity, body weight and blood pressure. With heart disease being the leading cause of death for men in the US, and 50% of men having at least one risk factor, heart health is a top concern for most men as they age. This $99 device will provide invaluable peace of mind as it gives men deep insights into their health at a moment’s notice. So I’m giving this to my husband instead.
This stainless steel bucket is stocked with everything Dad needs (and wants) to create a gourmet barbecue meal. It includes three gourmet spice rubs, buffalo wing flavored gourmet popcorn, along with three refreshing beers. Dad will really enjoy this perfect combination of beer and BBQ! Oh and it arrives beautifully wrapped too!
6. GoPro HERO5 Black, $349.99
File this one under something he wants but will not buy for himself! GoPRo HERO5 Black is the most powerful and easy-to-use GoPro ever, thanks to its 4K video, voice control, one-button simplicity, touch display and waterproof design. When it’s time to edit and share, HERO5 Black automatically uploads footage to your GoPro Plus cloud account to provide easy access on your phone. Then, you can create amazing videos automatically with Quik, the GoPro editing app. He will love it. If he doesn’t you keep it! Win/win.
7. Google Home Voice Activated Speaker, $129
Dad always fancies himself an expert on all subjects. Now he can actually know what he’s talking about. Or he will just have something to talk to when he’s all alone in the house! He will love his all-knowing new BFF.
This will replace that God awful office clip my husband uses to get every last bit of toothpaste out of the tube. Please tell me he’s not the only one. At least this one looks good.
9. RayCop RS2, $349.99
Is your dad a germophobe? RayCop allergen vacuums include a dual filtration system incorporating a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, which is proven to capture 99.9% of common allergens. Additionally, the combination of ultraviolet light technology, optimized suction, and pulsating pads in RayClean Technology® is 3x more effective at capturing pollutants than a regular vacuum. Have at it Dad!
He will be so proud of himself for making his own wine! This 1 gallon winemaking starter kit comes with premium grape concentrate from world-class vineyards so it won’t taste like swill. It comes with everything he needs to make his own DIY small-batch gallon of Cabernet Sauvignon including easy to follow instructions.
11. Kiehl’s SInce 1851 Men’s Starter Kit, $43
Men really need to take care of their skin too and this 5-piece starter kit is perfect for the dad who has no time and is on the go! It includes Ultimate Man Body Scrub Soap, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, White Eagle Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream, Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash and Ultimate Strength Hand Salve.
I added these because there is not a dad on earth (no matter his age) who will not look handsome in these sunglasses. Period.
Happy Father’s Day!
