Score some great gifts - and fun gift wrapping techniques and ideas - for Dad this Father’s Day.
Men seem to be the hardest to buy for. Another tie? Craft beer? I mean, we know they need both, but this year, let’s help sweeten - or sauce up! – the gift giving tradition. We’re here to help give you some ideas to put together the most useful and meaningful gifts for Dad.
Get a grip.
So your Dad is addicted to the golf course? Or maybe his weekend is only happily complete when a few hours were snuck into his weekend by catching some afternoon z’s in the hammock. Is Dad more like a life-on-the-water type? Casting a few lines into the lake or river might be more his speed. Why not treat Dad to a new fishing pole, tackle box or golf club (or just the gift certificate to his favorite club or store would work). If tinkering around on an old engine is how he passes the time, what about a new tool?
Whatever suits his fancy, we have a feeling, if he’s doing it outside, there are some pesky bugs involved. Pair up a “splurge item” with some more sensible useful outdoor necessities like sunscreen (the sweat proof kind) and an all-natural bug repellant. We’ve tested and recommend checking out this combo – Gneaux More Gnaughty Gnat Repellent & Sunscreen.
It's "like a screened in porch in a bottle"! Field-tested on the Gulf coast, this non-greasy, moisturizing sunscreen contains natural repellent while providing broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) 50 SPF sun protection. And did we tell you it’s non-greasy? Huge perk there. He can cast his line without worrying about loosing his grip. Plus, it’s safe for children and pets so he can enjoy his outdoor activities with his best buds by his side.
Something Sweet and Saucy for the Grill Master.
Dads and grills are like peas and carrots (Wait. Who really eats peas with carrots? We digress…).
Is Dad the savory type that likes a bit of humor? Check out this Savannah-based small-batch food business that makes a BBQ sauce called Slap Yo Granny. You may ask, “Why the name Slap Yo Granny”? Well, they say this sauce is so good that you become awestruck and disoriented to the point it makes you want to slap your granny! Really, no one wants to slap someone so dear, but you have to try this sauce. It’s the perfect combination of ingredients blended in small batches. It’s sure to give the family’s favorite grilled foods a delicious balance of sassy and spicy. It’s also great cause it won’t burn on the grill - and will make for a great presentation when Dad serves up his grilled meals.
So, your Dad has a sweet spot? Check out Savannah Bee Company’s Grilling Honeys for Dad. This great gift idea for him is a nice twist on the classics for the grill lover in your life.
