Are you still looking for ideas on what to get your man this Father’s Day? Here are a few gift ideas that any outdoorsy guy will love, in various price ranges, from me Cameron, a guy who knows what guys like and appreciate.
Handmade Gifts ($0 - $20): These are by far the most meaningful and cherished gifts I’ve received and most other guys I know would say the same. We don’t even care exactly what it is, but that old cliche, “it’s the thought that counts,” definitely rings true in this case. When we get a gift like this we know there was a lot of thought & effort put into it, and that’s special. So what do you get for the guy who already has everything? You’ll never go wrong with a handmade gift from you or the kids. Some ideas: framed photos or pictures, handwritten notes or cards, pen holders, trays, or flower pots made from pottery.
Petzl Headlamp ($20): I prefer using my headlamp over a flashlight in most cases for the hands-free mobility it provides. I have several and keep one in my truck, one in my snowmobile pack, one in the house, and one with my camping gear. I’ve given these away as gifts a lot of times myself and always receive compliments on what a useful gift they are. (Link)
Tommy John or Stance Boxer Briefs ($30-40): I’ve always been a cheap-pack-of-Hanes type of guy and to me the thought of spending $30+ on a pair of boxers was ridiculous. That was until I got a pair of these for Christmas. There was an immediate and noticeable difference. I realized the all day comfort is a worthy investment and now have a drawer that’s filling up with premium undies. If your guy is still wearing cheap uncomfortable undies, surprise him with a pair of these and I guarantee he’ll appreciate you. And hey, maybe you’ll like the new look too ;). (Tommy John) (Stance)
Geier Elkskin Gloves ($50): This is the one item I probably use more than any other on this list. I keep a pair in my truck and they go everywhere with me. I use them for everything from hooking up my snowmobile trailer in the winter, working around the property, or when we’re camping to manage tinfoil dinners or grab hot logs. A nice pair of leather work gloves will get years of use and every time he wears them he’ll think of and appreciate you. (Link)
Danner Leather Work Boots ($190): A good pair of leather boots will last forever. And like most leather goods, they get better with age. I use mine when I’m working on our property, riding my motorcycle, camping, or really anytime I’m out in the dirt. The classic styling is a look that’s hard to beat as well. (Link)
Best Made Axe ($150-300): I lusted after this axe for years but was too cheap to buy one for myself, so imagine my surprise when I finally got one a few years ago for Father’s Day. They’re handmade, beautiful, and I’m sure they work great as well, they’re just so nice I’m afraid to use mine. It’s become a piece of wall art for me, but still one of my favorite gifts that I’ve ever received. (Link)
