Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas (if your baby daddy is anything like mine)

Dad wants to smoke meat. It’s primitive, it’s delicious, there’s a technique to it that Dad can constantly hone (keeping him occupied outside for hours, which he likes). It does not have to be super fancy. In fact, although you can make your own (which sounds right up dad’s alley), we found for the cost of materials, you can get a decent one from a place like Menards and you don’t have to built it.

Dad wants beer. Good beer. Check out the unique selection of Pipeworks Brewing Co. (PBC), a new small-batch craft brewery out of Chicago (check out facebook for releases and distribution). If you can’t make it to our beautiful city to buy dad a hoppy IPA or a malty porter from the fine men of PBC, visit your local liquor store and get Dad a craft brew with a rad label.

Dad wants an important-looking bottle opener on his key chain to open his craft beer bottles. Dig this nifty church key-looking one from SuckUK.

 

 

Dad wants a cool shirt. You’ve got your Threadlesses, your Snorgs, your BustedTees. Christ, even Target carries a decent selection of ironic/vintage/meme-y shirts. Those are fine and good, but consider an original, hand-printed shirt from design group Slow Loris out of Guemes Island, Wash. They have some sick new designs out now, but my all-time favorite is the auto engine diagram shirt I got for my husband. Your dad will thank you (especially if he’s broken down and needs to find the ignition wire).

Dad wants to be lazy. In the shade. Being rocked gently by the summer’s breeze. Sound a little corny? Guess what? Dad is also corny. Get him a hammock. In return, he will finish up those “honey-do” and “daddy-do” lists from all the energy he’s restored from lazing around in his human cocoon. Hey, I bet he’d even share it.

Dad wants to survive the apocalypse. He read “The Road,” loves “Walking Dead” and “Survivorman” and now it’s his mission to keep his kinfolk safe not if, but when disaster strikes. “SAS Survival Handbook” will offer him peace of mind as we approach the revelation.

 

Bottom line: Get Dad an ugly tie, he’ll wear it. Buy him the wrong wrench, he’ll find use for it. That’s the beauty of dads. They aren’t picky. Truth is, he’d be happy with a six pack of PBR and hot dogs grillin’ on a Smokey Joe. As long as you’re by his side.
