Father’s Day is approaching quickly, so it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift for this special occasion.
Although fathers appreciate traditional gifts emblazoned with “World’s Greatest Dad”, your special guy deserves something a little different this year.
If you pick something from this list of great outdoor gifts for your dad, you can give him something as unique as he is! Nothing boring like a plain old tie, jumper cables, or another dutch oven here.
These suggested gifts are especially ideal for the dad who loves working and playing outside:
1. King of the Grill 7pc BBQ Set
This is no ordinary set of grilling tools. This personalized nylon apron has special pockets to hold the included utensils: slotted spatula, BBQ fork, grip tongs, oven mitt and salt and pepper shakers.
Dad will have everything within reach while grilling. Add up to 10 characters for a cusom personalized name to go along with the already included “King of the Grill” phrase. Not only is this apron handy, it’s sure to make a great conversation piece!
2. KanJam Disc Game (Perfect Gift for Dads Who Love Family Games)
Put a fun twist on a traditional game by playing KanJam. Rather than throwing the disc back and forth, KanJam requires teamwork and skill. Throw the disc in the target (kan) to score points in this 4 player game.
Everyone will have hours of fun with this portable backyard activity.
This is a good way to show off dad’s well-manicured lawn while playing a fun game with the family.
