Father’s Day is right around the corner and even though your Dad insists on grill duty, we all know he’d love some rad gifts outside of the grill that he can put to good use. Keep in mind that he’s already got the apron, he’s already got the grill, and he’s already got just about everything you can think of. Here’s a list of gear that he might not already have and will surely put to good use.
Everytime you go on a camping trip with Dad, you bring an awesome tent and sleeping bag, but sit on logs. If not logs, some old camping chairs that are falling apart. Maybe comfy chairs are a priority of yours and you just can’t relate to your dad’s refusal to get some new seating options. Either way, get your dad a camping chair that’s different from everyone else’s and he’ll be stoked that you thought of him every time he sets it up and sits down.
“Put the camera away, dad…” You have definitely rolled your eyes and said this when you were younger. Now that you’re older and have come to appreciate all the photos he takes, it’s time to make sure Dad’s camera is protected when it’s not in use. With features including a waterproof 30D Cordura, Sorona® Synthetic Down 600+ fill power equivalent, YKK buckles, and much more, you’re dad’s camera will definitely be protected and easy to use with this protective covering. Not to mention, this is also a gift to yourself. Measured in likes.
This one is self-explanatory… Your dad buys cheap sunglasses because he’s let go of trying to be cool, and as we all know, dads aren’t typically good at treating themselves to something nice. With that being said, your selling point for Costa x Bureo’s Untangled Collection collab could be that the frames are 100% made from recycled plastic. Better yet, let him know that the wayfarer style is cool again.
Enough with the Hawaiian shirts. Get your dad wearing a tee that’s nice enough to blend in at your next casual but classy outing. Yarn dyed and constructed with mix of hemp and cotton, this shirt will be heavier and higher quality than the plain tees he buys while grocery shopping. Bottom line: it’s going to last longer, be better for the environment, and look better than any other tee in his closet. That’s something all dads can get behind.
If your dad buys his board shorts where he buys his shirts, chances are he still rocks the swim trunks with fish netting inside. Get him out of those with a brand that speaks to both your his generation and yours. Patagonia’s Wavefarer boardies, made from 62-percent recycled materials, 2 way stretch, and a comfortable inseam, the adjustment from fish nets to freedom should be a soft transition.
