How do you tell the man who taught you so much how you feel…on one day…with one gift?
Well – hopefully, you show it year ‘round…and use Father’s Day to add a little icing on the cake.
But before buying for the man who taught you everything about life, make sure to take a few things into account.
- Budget – Everything on this list is considered low to medium budget items. You should be able to find something on here even if you don’t have much cash to work with.
- Time to shop – Don’t wait until the last minute. Some of these items could take up to 5-7 days to ship make sure to buy ASAP!
(FYI – Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18th, 2017)
- His personality & interests – What does he enjoy? Is he a stylish dandy? Outdoorsy? Like to grill? Enjoy beer or wine? Scotch or whiskey?
Does your dad shave?
Ever see him stick toilet paper bits on his face from razor cuts? Well, tell him to keep the toilet paper for his bum.
The Glyder is a patent pending styptic balm that instantly stops nicks and cuts from bleeding.
FYI – They’re doing a Father’s Day giveaway now where you could win an entire shaving kit for free. (But if you don’t win, the balm is only $9.99 with FREE SHIPPING)
I sprayed this cologne on and went out one night. A table of women tapped me on my shoulder and asked what I was wearing so they can buy it for their husbands. Then one of the ladies winked at my fiancée and gave her a thumb up sign.
So yeah – whether your dad is married or living the bachelor life – this cologne will turn someone’s head.
If your dad is a whiskey man this is one of my personal favorites. I consider myself somewhat of a whiskey enthusiast and sipping on this over a whiskey ice cube has always been a smooth experience.
If you’re looking for specific whiskey cocktail recipes you can find some here.

Have you ever watched your Dad hack away at the grill after a BBQ? Cleaning the oven pit is just as important as knowing how to use it.
This innovative grill brush design features two continuous springs to get the grease and food particles off your grill grates but has no rough edges to cut you or dangerous metal bristles that could fall out and get into your food. The self-contained springs conform to any grill’s contours to tackle tenacious, burnt-on food and will last longer than traditional brushes.
Do Dad’s bottles take up all the space in the fridge? With these clever fridge storage strips, your bottles will hang out in a cool loft that might make the orange juice jealous.
Each strip features three super-strong neodymium magnets–two strips secure a six-pack of your favorite beverage bottles to the ceiling of your refrigerator, keeping them handy and freeing up space for other food that’s just chillin’. The strips adhere to any spot with heavy-duty peel-and-stick adhesive.
How often does Dad bring a snack to his La-Z-Boy and not have anywhere to put it? His balancing act of couch accouterments is one coffee cup away from collapse.
With this arm table, he can prop hi feet up and keep beverages, snacks, and remote controls handy with this clever, sofa arm-gripping table. The adjustable spring clasps hold onto any size or style of the arm (up to 15″ wide) to provide a stable spot for couch-time essentials.
Is your dad a golfer? One of the best gifts you can give him is quality time. He’s not getting any younger. Grab a tee time, bring a cooler of beers, and go hit the golf course with him. I promise he’ll enjoy it.

If your Dad prefers to sip on the fire water instead then this is the perfect gift. More than just a handsome homage to whiskey, this miniature oak barrel ages spirits to peak flavor, just like its full-sized siblings found in professional distilleries.
Its petite proportions accelerate the aging process, meaning that his choice of liquor will hit its prime up to ten times faster. Before first use, make sure to cure the barrel for 3-5 days, as mentioned in the included instructions. Turn the barrel and taste the contents weekly, and when they reach their ideal oakiness, enjoy a glass straight from the tap.
Price: Varies based on customization ($80-$200)
Does your dad enjoy continued education? Or just learning for the fun of it? Buy him a course that will teach him something he’s passionate about. Does he enjoy writing? Photography? Cooking?

Price: Varies based on the course (FYI – New student discounts are 90% OFF)
