Other Great Father’s Day Gift Ideas

If whiskey isn’t enough to show your father(s) how much you appreciate them, consider throwing in some classic Father’s Day gifts too! Other good father’s day gifts could include:
  • New Tools: If your dad is the DIY type, some new tools would make for a great gift to help them finally finish that project they’ve had on hold or start a new one.
  • Ties: Is your dad big in love with their tie collection? Consider getting them a new one, or a few, to add to it so they can think of you every time they wear it.
  • Golf Clubs: If your dad likes hitting the links with his pals regularly they will definitely appreciate you getting him some new clubs. Especially ones they’ve had their eye on.
  • Grilling Accessories: Your favorite “grill master” will probably be over the moon to get some new grilling tools to show off when they have guests over for a backyard BBQ.
  • New Tech: While dads may not always be hip to the latest tech trends they could stand to benefit from something like a fitness watch, music player, or some other “fancy gadget” as they might say.
  • Cigars: Cigars are a perfect compliment to a good bottle of whiskey that your father(s) are sure to love if they like cigars and whiskey.
  • New Shoes: Odds are your dear old dad has a favorite pair of shoes that could use an upgrade. Consider getting them new shoes to do yard work or go out in (your mom might appreciate this one too).
  • A Fun Mug: Mugs are great gift for dads who enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea in the morning. Get a mug that shows how much you love them or something that will make them laugh every time they use it.
  • Something Comfy: Your dad works hard, get them a gift like a hammock, recliner, or comfy clothes for them to relax in while they drink their whiskey.

No matter what you get for your dad(s), you’ll have the most success if you get them a Father’s Day gift that is thoughtful and shows how much you care for and appreciate them. From everyone here at BLACKENED, we wish you a Happy Father’s Day!
