June is here and that means Father’s Day is right around the corner. No matter what Dad is into, chances are he has enough ties in his closet.
It’s not any more fun giving an unwelcomed gift than it is receiving one. This is why I always stick to the more practical gifts. My theory is that there is less of a chance he’ll return it, because it’s something Dad will actually use. These are a few items we’ve found that we think your father or husband will enjoy too.
Practical Gifts for Dad
Minted is our go-to for classic photo gifts. I sent my parents a beautiful piece of framed art featuring their grandchildren for Christmas and they loved it. For Father's Day, my husband is going to love this framed print using a memory from our recent vacation. This one, and many others feature real foil for a little bit of added drama. $95-160; Minted
With grilling season in full swing, Dad can surely use an easy way to clean the grates on the grill and the Grill Daddy is a fantastic tool that gets the job done. It team-cleans and sanitizes them safely and thoroughly without all of that elbow grease. Let Dad spend more time grilling and eating and less time cleaning the stubborn grease and charred bits. $14; Amazon
Improve his handyman skills
Our Dad likes to try and be handy and by that I mean hanging picture frames and art. Sadly, this can take longer than it should. The Hang-o-Matic is a nifty new all-in-one tool that makes the job a lot easier. It will measure, level, and mark with precision to hang any kind of wall decor from shelving to artwork. $15; Amazon
This great new cologne opens with pure, cool accents of Sea Spray Accord and Sea Salt. This invigorating breath of fresh air is enhanced with doses of spicy Coriander and crisp Citrus Zest. The heart is a powerful aromatic combination of Geranium, Green Peppercorn, Apple and Palm Leaves, reinforcing the fragrance's bold and lush freshness. The base is a vibrant and magnetic blend of Brazil Wood, Musk, Patchouli and Vetiver. $62.50; Walgreens
