Dad is Rad – 4 Father’s Day Gift Ideas

June brings sunshine and warm weather, but perhaps its most notable offering is that special occasion we call Father’s Day. It provides us the perfect opportunity to celebrate our dads. These dedicated and hard working men are greatly appreciated!

With celebrations often come gifts, and Father’s Day is no exception. We have a few ideas that can help you show dad just how special he is.

A Lasting Gift

Looking to give dad a gift he’ll use for years to come? Does he enjoy cooking outdoors? Then he might like his very own Big Green Egg. This versatile grill combines ancient culinary methods with modern technology for a superb cooking experience. Its ability to cook food evenly produces delicious results with everything from chicken and burgers to steaks, roasts, and ribs. It will even cook most any style pizza, yummy casseroles, and sumptuous desserts. With several sizes in their lineup, the Big Green Egg suits any outdoor space.

Since we just happen to be an authorized Big Green Egg dealer, you can stop by our store and check them out. We’ll give you the scoop on how it works and all the amazing meals you can create with it. You’ll want to check out the Big Green Egg EGGcessories, too, from cooking tools and cookware to covers and tables, these accessories will enhance dad’s grilling experience.

Dad also might like the Looftlighter, a portable flameless lighter that will come in handy now that grilling season is here. Its safe and clever design enables super-heated air to ignite charcoal or wood quickly. Use it outdoors for the grill or campfires or indoors for the fireplace. Dad will appreciate this handy tool whether he’s a full time grill master or weekend barbecue chef. We carry the Looftlighter as well – be sure and check out our related Father’s Day Special below.

Happily Homemade

Homemade gifts come straight from the heart, and Father’s Day is the perfect time for kids to create something special to show dad how much they love him. Encourage the gang to make handmade pictures or cards, or one of these easy Father’s Day Kid Friendly Craft Projects.

Do your kids like to cook? Then they may want to cook up some easy yet delectable treats for dad, like Sloppy Joe Sliders, Crunchy Breakfast Tacos, or Pizza Skewers. For dad’s sweet tooth, try a fun recipe like Oatmeal Smoothies, Raspberry and Cream Cheese Brownie Bites, or a Watermelon Split.

A Helping Hand

Dads are hardworking guys, so why not give him a break by doing yard work or mowing the lawn, washing the car, or any of the many things dad regularly does. He’s sure to appreciate the reprieve from the routine.

Has dad begun a project but hasn’t had time to finish it? Perhaps he started painting a room or building a deck or mulching the flowerbeds. If it is within your abilities, why not complete the project for him? You’ll not only check an item off his to-do list, you’ll give him the gift of a little free time. What dad wouldn’t be grateful for that?

A Special Treat 

Whether he mentions it or not, there’s almost always something dad wouldn’t mind doing or buying. New tools, car accessories, electronics, sporting goods – you name it, there’s something dad wouldn’t mind picking out himself. So why not get a gift card so dad can shop at his favorite stores? Don’t forget restaurants, either.  From fine dining to fast food and everywhere in between, our community offers many great options where dad will enjoy having a meal.

Does dad like to fish, hike, or bike? Does he enjoy attending sporting events or concerts, or visiting museums? Plan an afternoon, an evening, or a whole day to do something together. Top it off with a meal out or a special home cooked dinner just for good measure.

Just a thought while we’re on the topic – an Andriots’ Gift Certificate might offer what dad is looking for too. In addition to the Big Green Egg and EGGcessories, we carry many home improvement tools as well as paint and flooring too.  We’d be happy to help dad find what he’s looking for, plus offer him a great cup of coffee when he’s here.

No matter what the gift, large or small, let dad know just how much you appreciate him. His love and hard work make the world a better place for us all. We wish all the dads out there a safe and Happy Father’s Day!
