(BPT) - He grills the best steaks, travels to new adventures and hosts game day parties. Whether it's for his birthday, Father's Day or in celebration of a promotion or completed degree, doesn't dad deserve better than a boring old necktie? This year, select something with a modern twist. These gifts will wow dad and make him feel celebrated.
Tools for the grill master
Grilling is resurging in culinary popularity, and nothing beats a perfectly grilled steak for dad. He'll appreciate a good set of grilling tools to make the experience more enjoyable and the steaks more delicious. A versatile tool like the Grill-A-Tong from Personal Creations is a great way to give him all the tools he needs in one fun tong. The heavy duty stainless steel tool is part spatula, part tongs, and a handy bottle opener, so dad can man the grill while enjoying a cold beverage without risking a burnt steak.
Just because dad is always on-the-go doesn't mean he should forego style and class. Give him an easy way to organize all his gadgets and gizmos in a handsome package. Many well-made bags on the market now are beautifully made but still masculine in design. A fine grain Blue Leather Weekender Bag from RedEnvelope fits the bill for any father on the go.
A new adventure
Nothing makes dad happier than sharing an experience with his family. Put a smile on dad's face this year with a new adventure that the entire family can share together. Sites like LivingSocial and Groupon have great ideas for new activities to try at a discounted price, so keep an eye out for a paddle boarding lesson, indoor rock climbing gym or outdoor concert tickets - anything dad can enjoy with the family. He may just pick up his favorite new hobby, so choose carefully!
Sweets to satisfy the sweet tooth
If your dad has a sweet tooth, try something a little more gourmet this year than a box of store-bought candy. Gourmet sweets are more popular than ever, and dad will appreciate the thought that went into upgrading his sweet tooth cravings. Salted caramels are a delicious sweet and salty combination he'll love. Or if dad is a baseball fan, opt for gourmet dipped Home Run Strawberries that look like baseballs from Shari's Berries for a gift that will hit it out of the park.
Man cave essentials
Dads will always love their man caves, so why not deck out his man cave this year to really celebrate his day? Find functional but fun gifts that will make him laugh but can also be used throughout the years. Personalized items like wall signs and coasters make a great gift. A Man Cave Bottle Opening Coaster can be personalized with dad's name, and even has a built-in bottle opener on the bottom of the coaster, making it a doubly useful gift for dad.
Every dad is one of a kind. This year, give dad a gift that's as special as he is.
