Whether he enjoys camping, grilling, or going out for his favorite meal, the way to win a man’s heart just may still be through his stomach. And that includes dear old dad! So, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite gift ideas that are sure to show just how much you appreciate him–just in time for Father’s Day.


Is your dad a present-day Davy Crockett? For the natural outdoorsman, plenty of gadgets and gizmos are available to fuel his interest.

Excalibur Unit – This camping-trip essential makes a great gift, as it allows dad to prepare his favorite snacks such as beef jerky, dried fruit, and trail mix.

 Knife Sharpener – Help him catch that trophy fish and prepare it to perfection with a knife sharpener such as the Chef’sChoice Sportsman 4635, which sharpens both fishing and light hunting knives.

Waffle Iron – Start dad’s day off right with a substantial plate of waffles. When the man cave walls can’t hold another deer bust, the Chef’sChoice Sportsman Classic WafflePro Model makes waffles imprinted with a deer head design.


Maybe the majority of dad’s time outdoors is spent barbecuing. Grill accessories are a must-have when hosting a cookout for family and friends.

Grill Maintenance Items – Help him keep that surface char-free with a new grill brush or liners. The steam-releasing Grill Daddy melts away grease and breaks down resistant residue. Pair it with the Clean BBQ Disposable Grill Liners to help eliminate the hassle of heavy-duty clean ups.

BBQ Tools – Once the grill is spotless, prepare those perfect patties with the Burger Stomper. Then, flip them with precision using the Heat Shield BBQ Tools Set.


If dad’s grill skills aren’t quite up to par but he’s still the king of the kitchen, these cutting-edge appliances could be just what he needs to take his cooking to the next level. 

Electric Food Slicer – Create premium cuts of a variety of deli items perfect for salads, snacks, and sandwiches.

Juicer – Help dad stay healthy with this simple yet sophisticated device that liquefies fruits and veggies in a few short steps.

Or, give him a culinary class at your neighborhood grocery store or trade school. You just might benefit with a few new family meal favorites!


Whether or not your dad enjoys cooking for himself, he deserves to be waited on every once in a while. Take dad to his favorite restaurant or pick up a package of his favorite food this Father’s Day.

Dining Out – Take your dad to Fleming’s or Ruth’s Chris and he will leave with not only a full belly, but also a $25 gift card towards a future visit. Ruby Tuesday’s is also featuring a similar promotion; receive a $15 bonus when you purchase a gift card for $50 or more online.

Gift Package – Running out of time? From sweet tooth to cheese head, these last minute gift sets will satisfy any and all taste buds. Pick up a variety of Murray’s Cheese or a collection of Omaha Steaks for a savory supper. For dessert, grab a dozen cupcakes topped with a chocolate mustache from Crumbs, or an assortment of tie and golf ball shaped chocolates from Edward Marc Chocolatier.

No matter what kind of dad you have in your life–sportsman, foodie, or just dear ol’ dad, treat him to something special. You never know when he’ll share!
