Father’s Day is Sunday, June 17 – what have you got lined up for Dad? Instead of the usual gift of a tie (to hang in his already-full closet) or a book (that he’ll never get around to reading), try one of these ideas instead. You’ll make it a Father’s Day to remember and have fun together!
Is your dad all about the craft beer movement? Whether he brews it in the bathtub or backyard, Dad will appreciate the convenient way to store and share his concoctions by using a growler. You can find them at breweries or on the Internet and they come in different shapes and styles, but the best thing about a growler is that it will keep your beer cold and carbonated for up to two weeks (but whose beer lasts that long anyway?!). Get him a fancy one that he can show off at neighborhood barbeques or have his name engraved on it.
If your fashion-forward dad is rocking the beard trend or just likes his three-day stubble look, a beard trimmer with a built-in vacuum might be a winner. Not only does it keep his vanity area clean, it is portable and can be tucked inside a briefcase or dop kit for mess-free on-the-go touch-ups.
The gift of experience is something that can be priceless. Dads who love the outdoors will appreciate a weekend camping trip to Bishop’s Landing on Lake Conroe. You and dad can swim in the lake or swimming pools, go fishing, rent a canoe or enjoy a few rounds of mini golf and horseshoes. Spend the evening bonding around the campfire while making s’mores. These are the times that you and Dad will treasure in the years to come.
Take Dad out to the ol’ ballgame. The World Champion Houston Astros are back in action and off to a great start this season, currently atop the American League West standings. The team starts an almost two-week homestand the day after Father’s Day, so there are lots of options to choose from.
No matter how you decide to celebrate your dad this year, make sure to tell him how much he means to you. That’s a gift any dad will love.
