If you’re trying to figure out what to get dear ol’ Dad for Father’s Day this year, and coming up stumped, then check out this list of ideas we’ve put together for you. We’ve got something for every kind of dad, have a look and see if anything here sounds like yours:
Whether he’s in the backyard, at the game, over at a buddy’s, or at his favorite camp, any dad would love a new bronze Traeger Tailgater 20 Pellet Grill this year. Why? Unlike a lot of other pellet grills out there, this one’s easy to haul from place to place so he can cook his favorite foods just about anywhere. Just because it’s a smaller model doesn’t mean it’s short on cooking space, though. This bad boy can handle two chickens or three racks of ribs or twelve burgers at a time! It’s versatile, too, allowing him to grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and BBQ, whatever the occasion calls for. With a wide variety of pellets to choose from, he can experiment with different flavors and recipes for years to come.
If he needs power on the go, check out the Firman W03283 Remote Start 3000 Watt Inverter. This quiet, powerful model is perfect for camping, work sites, power tools, emergencies, or running that pellet grill he loves so much. The wheels and folding handle make it easy to move around, and the remote start means it’s a cinch to fire up when he’s ready. Packed with features and priced right, if he’s talked about getting a generator, this is a hard pick to beat.
If your dad likes camping, have a look at this Browning Canyon Creek Five-Person Tent. With 80 square feet of floor space and a 6 foot center height, it has plenty of room to move around and he won’t have to crawl around when he’s trying to get dressed. It goes up easily, and the rain fly has extra guylines to add stability in rough weather. Two D-style doors make access and ventilation quick and easy. This is a great tent for family outings, hunting trips, or backyard overnighters with the little ones.
Got a dad who’s into guns? They can be a little hard to shop for, because you may not be sure whether or not you’re picking the right gun to add to his collection. We can take some of the mystery out of that with a few suggestions:
A New AR
If he’s talked about getting an AR, you can’t go wrong with the Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport II Rifle package. It’s ready out-of-the box, and all he’ll need is some ammo to go with it. It includes a Duty Series gun case and a Caldwell Mag Charger, over $60 of extras!
A New 1911
If he likes handguns, he’ll love the Remington 1911 R1 Pistol in satin stainless steel with fine-checkered American walnut grips. This classic .45 ACP will be a welcome addition to his collection with its precision machining, crisp trigger, and ultra-tight tolerances. This is the sort of pistol that stays in the family and gets handed down from one generation to the next.
A New Safe
Does your dad have a lot of guns? Give him a place to keep them safe and sound with the Browning SW23 23-Gun Safe. It’ll store 23 long-guns securely with the 12-gauge thick steel and an electronic lock that allows him to set his own code and change it whenever needed. It’s also fire-rated for 30 minutes at 1,400 °F. As a nice bonus, it includes a free Pistol Vault valued at $70!
There’s just something about fishing with Dad that builds a lifetime of memories. For many of us, this was our first introduction to the outdoors, and we couldn’t wait to tag along on the next trip. Show your dad you remember the good old days by getting him some of these items from our Fishing department:
Not sure which rod or reel to get Dad this year? Take the guesswork out and get him the Lew's Laser® SS Speed Spinning Combo that has both! It’s lightweight, has a smooth 8-bearing system, a premium IM7 graphite blank, and quality stainless steel guides. The reel is also adjustable for right or left-handed use.
If he’s still lugging around a beat up old tackle box, consider getting him a new Plano 3700 A-Series 2.0 Quick-Top Soft Tackle Bag. Featuring over 3,000 square inches of carrying space, heavy-duty hardware, oversized zippers, MOLLE attachment points, a removable padded shoulder strap, and optimized pocket organization. He’ll be thrilled to move all of his tackle and gear out of that old relic for his next trip to the water.
No dad can have too many tools. These Mustad Heavy-Duty Premium Pliers are great for any fisherman, and would be a welcome addition to any tackle box. The longer pliers are perfect for staying safe when dealing with toothy fish, and are coated with black titanium nitride to help with corrosion resistance. With textured jaws and soft handles, these handy 11” pliers might find their way out of the tackle box and into other odd jobs, but you can bet they’ll find their way back before his next fishing trip.
If you've gotten this far just can’t decide, get him a Gift Card to show him that you know what he likes (even if you don’t know what he wants).
