Summer is the season of celebration, both because of calendar holidays and the excitement of sun and travel (either physical or virtual). To help kick off the official start of summer, Father’s Day is on June 20. If you’re looking for gift ideas for Dad, here are a handful to get you started.  

For the Foodie Father 

Of course, you can always gift Dad the typical barbecue item, but if you really want to surprise him, branch out into other areas of the kitchen. Whether he loves to host company, or likes experimenting with different flavors, here are a few perfect gifts. 

From Uncommon Goods
  • Kabob Grilling Baskets, $17 from UncommonGoods.com: If the skewer is the one thing keeping Dad from grilling kabobs, a kabob basket takes care of that. Grill individual meat and veggie combinations without the skewer hassle.  
From Uncommon Goods
  • Gourmet Dipping Oil Spice Kit, $42 from UncommonGoods.com: Especially great for anyone looking to taste test different spice blends or make custom mixes, a dipping oil spice kit is a unique, exciting gift. 

The Techie Dad 

If he loves technology but isn’t quite sure what he wants, these gift options are just what Dad has been wanting. Whether it’s a personal gift or an upgrade the whole house can enjoy, here are just a few items that will surely win him over.  

From Audible
  • Audible Subscription, $14.95 after a 30-day trial at Audible.com: This is a great option for anyone who loves books but doesn’t have the time or means to sit down and read. Dad can choose any book, from any genre, to have read aloud. Whether it is at home, on the road or even at the gym, Dad can catch up on some pages. 
From DigitalTrends
  • Soundbar, prices range from anywhere online or in-store: For the dad that wants to transform his living room into THE home entertainment room, soundbars are a great way to capture quality sound from TV shows and movies. With prices ranging from $40 to $800, there are a plethora of choices for Dad. 

No matter what gift you choose, there’s no better gift than quality time. Let Dad know how special he is this Father’s Day by spending the day with him either in person, on the phone or through a Zoom call! 

Take care, and we’ll see you in July!
