Friday Five: Father’s Day Edition

Posted on

This Sunday is Father’s Day.  I recently read an interesting post online that said that people spend more money on moms for Mother’s Day than on fathers. I think this stinks. Dads are just as important as moms, and while the price of the gift is not important, making sure dad feels special is what matters. Some dad’s are extremely hard to buy presents for – maybe that is why there is such a huge difference in spending habits.  How many wallets or BBQ aprons does dad need? So,  in honor of the guy that puts everything together, carries all of the heavy stuff, and makes the best pizza, here is a list of 5 great Father’s Day gifts he is sure to enjoy. Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing dads out there!

1. Mantry – Mantry is the #1 food gift for men. Each wooden crate is filled with artisan food and beverages, and delivered right to your door. These aren’t common ingredients. Instead, dad will get items like lemon and sea salt popcorn, bourbon brittle, or dragon’s blood hot sauce. Also included are recipes to help make the most of each item.  Mantra crates can be purchased in 1, 3, or 6 month subscriptions and start at $75.

2.  Wild Man Beard Conditioning Oil – CJ’s dad has a great beard. In fact, facial hair is all the rage now. The key to not looking like a cave man is maintenance. Facial hair should be neat and clean. That takes a lot of work. So to help dad out, get him this great conditioning oil that works as a skin moisturizer, as well. This oil is one of the more affordable options on the market at $12, and it has a great scent.

2. Loot Crate –  Video games, comic books, and movies are huge in our house. We are equal parts nerdy, cool, nostalgic here and that makes Loot Crate a perfect match.  Promising to deliver an “epic experience every month,” Loot Crate is available in 1, 3, 6, or 12 month subscriptions. Oh, and each month, one lucky subscriber  wins a mega crate worth over $2,000.

4.  Darth Vader Vans –  Even when dressing casually, dad wants to look his best. So why not an easy slip on shoe featuring one of the most iconic dads of all time? If Darth Vader isn’t his thing (are there people who don’t like Darth Vader?), vans has hundreds of options for sneakers, including customizable ones.

5.  Apple TV – One of the best purchases we have made in the last year has been our Apple TV. It is great to be able to access tons of stations, as well as online content on our television. It is portable and great for traveling. If you have been thinking about terminating your cable tv subscription, Apple TV will still keep you connected to your favorite shows and other digital content.
