Father's Day Gift Guide: How to Celebrate Your Dad
With Father’s Day coming up quickly, a lot of people are looking for ways to celebrate the dad in their life. At Hopdoddy, we understand the importance of not just gifts, but experiences and time spent together, so we put together a list of our favorite ideas that you can use for your dad or a dad you know.
Father’s Day Gifts
Even the smallest gifts can make Father’s Day special, so put thought into your choice and go with your gut. Here are some ideas to help guide you:
Hop Shop Merch
Whether your dad likes beer, burgers, or just puns and dad jokes, our Hop Shop has the perfect gift for him. Everything from shirts, koozies, socks, bandanas for your dog, and more – find something that’ll make him laugh and love to wear or use. Honestly, what dad wouldn’t want a “Yippee-Ki-Yay Truffle Lover” sweatshirt or a Hot Buns dad cap?
Putters, Wedges, & Irons
For those golfing dads, check out Edel, who use torque-balanced technology to create a more balanced club. You can even get a custom fitting appointment to figure out the specific club that will work best for him. Help him up his game (even if he insists he can win the Masters) today.
For an ongoing gift, Craft Beer Club has a monthly subscription service that delivers 12 (or 24) beers per month from the best independent breweries in the country. In addition to the beers, it also comes with information about each of the featured brewers for the month and recipes to pair with them.
Stingray BBQ Multitool
The Stingray BBQ Multitool is a huge upgrade to any grillmaster’s arsenal. Perfect for those who work smarter not harder, it combines tongs, a spatula, grill fork, and even a built-in bottle opener for enjoying a beer while grilling.
C4 Portable Grill
Speaking of grillmasters, combine the new multitool with a portable grill to take tailgates, camping, beach parties, and more to the next level. Made from welded twelve-gauge steel with dual intake dampers on the front and back side to control better airflow, this is something that will be used for years to come.
Handmade Teak Safety Razor
For the dads that take their shaving more seriously than most, this handmade razor from Old Factory is a great gift. Made from premium and durable materials like teak hardwood and stainless steel, it elevates any shaving experience, and they even offer a version that fits Mach 3 blades.
Father’s Day Activities
Some dads are “doers” rather than wanting gifts, so we also have some ideas for things you can do together or he can do if you can’t be there:
Rent His Dream Car
Every dad probably has a dream car, whether classic muscle like a Camaro or Mustang, or the newer Porsches or BMWs. Finding out what his is and renting one to drive for a day is a great way to give a personalized, possibly once-in-a-lifetime gift.
Beer Tasting at a Brewery
An activity not to combine with the previous is to visit a local brewery and spend the afternoon tasting beers. In Texas, there are plenty of great options, including Karbach Brewing Co. in Houston, Peticolas Brewing Company in Dallas, Rahr & Sons Brewing in Fort Worth, and Hops and Grain Brewing in Austin. Spending Father’s Day relaxing, reminiscing, and enjoying beers with each other and friends is a great gift that’s not too expensive and is well worth it.
Make your own burgers together
One of the best pairings with beers from a brewery or a subscription is burgers. Now you don’t even have to leave your house to make and build your own amazing burgers with Hopdoddy’s Burger Kit. It comes with all the ingredients you need and even has tips from our chef who shows you how to make them if you need guidance. Convenience is the name of the game for the last year, and this is about as easy as it gets without visiting one of our locations.
After you’ve picked up those clubs from Edel, why not test them out? Topgolf is another great way to spend Father’s Day eating, drinking, and of course playing golf. You can put his skills to the test and even if they’re not up to par (pun intended), it’s guaranteed to be a blast.
For the outdoorsy and adventurous dads out there, exploring is a great way to spend a day, or the whole weekend. Kayaking on the water, hiking through the mountains, or sleeping under the stars will get you out of the house after quarantine and make some exciting and fun memories.
If you’re looking for something more relaxing and indoors, the classic game or movie night is always a sure hit. Board games, video games, action movies, old movies, and more can all get everyone involved and having fun.
Just Put Thought Into It
No matter what you do or get, just remember that dads will appreciate any gift with thought put into it. Expensive or cheap, going out or staying in, showing that you care and know what they like will make sure they cherish whatever you decide to do, this year and in the future.
