Give your dad something that he’ll pass down…someday.
With Father’s Day just around the June corner, perhaps you’re wondering what to do for your dad that’ll really make him smile. It is likely that your dad doesn’t want any Father’s Day Gifts anything because he either already has it or he simply isn’t the type of person that likes gifts. He likes you, his kids, his grandkids, and would prefer a visit together, a morning coffee on the porch with his children, a day pushing his grandkids on a swing, or just the pleasure of a slowed down moment spent with the people he loves most, his family.
But if you can’t make it home this father’s day and you would like to send him something that expresses love and sincerity, consider a gift that he’ll be able to give back to you one day. Give him something that’ll make him say “someday, this’ll go to my grandkids,” give him something well-built and handmade. Afterall your dad is a humble man who wishes for nothing more than happiness of his kin. If you give him something he can give back to you one day, you’re giving him the gift re-generosity. You’re showing him that he’s taught you well. Consider something forged in gratitude or casted in love that will last lifetimes.
A Father’s Day Gifts ~ For The Dad That Works Hard
If he drinks coffee…
For the conseur of the perfect morning, there are few things finer than a hand-crank coffee grinder. Our friends at Texas Coffee Grinders have been crafting old-fashioned coffee grinders built to last forever. Their timeless method is rooted in the 1800’s and are complete with heavy duty cast iron hardware and 100% solid hardwoods.
The old burr mechanism grinds the beans in a way that lets the coffee’s natural bean oil soak into the fine grounds. Thus, the aromas from a mechanical grinder are superior to an electric blade grinder. Each grinder is individually built and tested for durability.
The part your dad will love most is that the hardwood looks better over time. When he finally hands it down to you it’ll shine with the care and attention that he’s put into it for years. This’ll become an heirloom that you and your family will use forever. Grind a cup a coffee with your dad, and thank him for being him.
Styles range in wood type, grinder mechanism, size, and are priced from $89.00-$120.00. Despite the model, you’re sure to receive a quiet and smooth coffee grinder that’ll stay in the family forever.
If he rides bikes…
With a little bit of love and care, there are few things that last longer than something made from high quality full grain leather. Our cycling friends over at Selle Anatomica craft leather saddles and accessories using premium American leather. Unlike other leather saddle brands that wet their leather before molding, Selle Anatomica hot molds their leather dry. No water. This produces a much more pliable leather that forms to your shape in weeks rather than years.
Your dad will want something comfortable and that he can trust. These saddles break in quickly and are 100% waterproof directly from the factory. With adjustable hex tensioners, these saddles provide some owner input and will give your dad something to fiddle with and be proud of. Selle Anatomica “make them like they used to” but just better.
For the casual cyclist dad that likes to climb hills just as much as he likes to cruise the quiet streets, you can’t go wrong with an NSX series. These saddles are stiff yet forgiving and work great for the cyclist that rides around 100 miles per week. They’re on sale right now for 149.99!
If he snowboards…
Some dads just can’t stop being rad. At Spark R&D Father’s Day Gifts , the products are just as well built for the pro shredder as they are the dinosaur dad who passes you when splitting up a skin track. Let’s be honest , your dad remembers the days when powder lasted for days at Jackson rather than hours. He still claims to be a powder chaser, and spends his free afternoons bombing side-country or splitting up and down the local pass.
Spark R&D claims and is the splitboard binding company. These bindings are strong and light, plain and simple. They’ll speed you up steep climbs, and lock you in down powdery chutes. Though your dad’s legs are still stronger than yours, he’ll still appreciate something light underfoot. Perhaps he’ll even volunteer to carry the lunch in his pack.
This gift is really about giving your dad something that he can use with his dad buddies, or with his family. The Arc binding is your go-to choice for a solid dad gift. They are $385.00, and really well built. Maybe more expensive than other touring bindings but these are the best…your dad deserves the best.
If he chops wood…
With a slogan like “Seamless and Steadfast” you know your dad will like it. Best Made Company is dedicated to selling tools and products that’ll outlast mankind. They have a deep relationship with the natural world and have created a company that sells products for those that appreciate the finest things in life. One of their specialties is the Straight-Hold Hatchet.
They guarantee that their products are designed for life. Thus the Straight-Hold Hatchet is built with a quality straight grain hardwood handle and a hand forged steel head sharpened and crafted in the USA. For $88.00 your dad will appreciate this fine tool as it arrives in a custom built wooden box from a company that cares more about quality and perfection than anything.
Dick Prooenneke said, “a man in the forest without his hatchet is like the city slicker in the city without his wallet.”
Happy Father’s Day.
