4 Gifts Dad Really Wants for Father's Day

Dads are great—so great that each year they get their own day!

Sometimes finding the right thing to do for Father’s Day can be tough, but whether your Dad (or Stepdad!) is the ultimate weekend warrior or prefers quiet afternoons with a history book listening to Chopin, he deserves to know how much you appreciate him. Let us help you make this Father’s Day one to remember with these four extra-special gifts that any Dad will love.

Give Entertainment

Whether it’s a book, music or TV series on Blu-ray, grab Dad a gift that speaks to his interests. Motorheads love shows about classic cars or image-laden books for their library. Does your Dad love to cook? Gift a cookbook authored by his favorite chef.

For music-loving Dads, the Internet now makes it easier than ever to find something they’ll enjoy. Take the time to find an album he doesn’t have from his favorite artist, or personalize your gift by making your own playlist of songs you know he likes. Bonus: these gifts aren’t ephemeral, but continue to be enjoyed well past Dad’s big day.

Give Something Delicious

All Dads have to eat—and chances are that there are certain dishes and sips that your Dad loves best. On his special day, make sure that Dad gets to enjoy a gustatory treat just for him. Conspire with your family to surprise Pops with his favorite barbecue, chocolate cake or home-made meal like his Mom used to make.

Don’t stop at finding his favorite food, though. Bring this Father’s Day to the next level by pairing that personalized meal with three different beers just for Dad! Make sure the trio you select are just different enough from each other to make it interesting. Variety is the spice of life, and your Dad will appreciate the extra effort.

Give Birrateque

Now that you’ve gotten Dad a selection of fine beers to try, go the extra mile with glassware to match. Make sure that Dad is sipping in style with a beer glass that’s as special as he is. Our recommendation: an offering from our Birrateque line of unique glassware designed to enhance Dad’s drinking experience. Our guide will help you choose just the right glass:

Father’s Day Guide to Glassware

The entire Birrateque Collection is dishwasher safe and made with our proprietary SON.hyx for superior strength and clarity. Like all Luigi Bormioli products made with SON.hyx, it carries a 25-Year Guarantee that guards against chipping on the rim, as well as discoloration or cloudiness resulting from washing. Did we mention that Birrateque was crafted in conjunction with the distinguished Italian Centro Studi Assaggiatori? These unique glasses also feature a Foam Control System (FSC) to maintain a steady stream of effervescence, so that Dad’s special brew keeps that “just-poured” head.

Give Your Time

Make the day special by joining Dad in his favorite activity. After all, didn’t he play endless peek-a-boo, tea parties and catch with you? Now it’s time to return the favor. Whether it’s fishing at the local creek or heading out to the movies, your Dad will know you care when you clear your schedule to join him in his favored pastime. There are many jokes about bottling and selling time—this is about as close as you can get!

These four gift ideas are perfect for any Dad and are sure to make his day special. Father’s Day is a chance to celebrate all the fun memories you have together—and to create new ones. So raise a glass to Dads everywhere and say cheers to everything they do!
