Father's Day gift ideas

Friday, June 7, 2013

If your dad is a bow tie man, get him a bow tie from Oak City Ties.  They are sewn locally, and some of the fabrics are even printed in Durham, NC.  The Tyson bow is conservative enough for a dad but still fun since the reversible pattern can be styled several ways.  Email oakcityties@gmail.com for information on the newest styles, or go by Anvil Gallery tonight from 6:00 to 9:00 for a special First Friday event.  Other retailers are listed here.

For a sleek, stylish, professional way for dad to hang onto his business cards, K.slademade recently came out with this monogrammed credit card sleeve.  It's also a good option for a streamlined wallet.  All of their products are made in the U.S.A.

Is your dad into boating on the lake or at the beach?  Y'all know I love bathing suits for myself.  My preference for men's bathing suits is what some may call a "dad" bathing suit.  The inseam must be short and the waist must be elastic.  Help dad get ready for the summer with the L.L. Bean Classic Sport Shorts, Columbia Backcast II Water Trunk, or Southern Marsh Dockside Swim Trunk.

Now.  If you want to go way over the top and thrill your dad, I've got two suggestions that would come with emphatic recommendations.

My dad loves his DR field and brush mower.  It takes out tall grass and even small trees.  If you want to send your dad outside for hours or need some help with your unruly yard, this is the ticket.

My dad's #1 wishlist item right now (well, okay, maybe after charts on his iPad) is a yard grill from GrillMan Grills.  These grills are basically one step down from pig cookers.  The company is based in New Bern, NC.

Father's Day gifts are much harder than Mother's Day!  If your parents are like mine, moms like stuff.  Dads do not like stuff.

What are you giving your dad for Father's Day?  If you are a father, what would you like to receive?
