What are you planning on giving for Father’s Day? A tie? A turtle-neck sweater? How about a river stone? Just perfect for skipping. Maybe a pack of wet cigarettes? A glass eye? None of these classic gift ideas can be found at Eddie Bauer, so maybe you should just leave the guesswork out of it. If the special man in your life enjoys camping and all the fun that comes with it, then don’t try to reinvent the wheel. We’re not splitting atoms here. I am a father (don’t laugh) and a camper. Let me help. Read on and let my words run down you like warm buttermilk.
It’s not easy finding the perfect gift. A little care and some imagination will go a long way. Stanley Brand camping and outdoor gear will make a great choice along with some of these other creative selections. Suck it up and get him something he will like. He has had to put up with your whining for a long time.
5 Gifts For Dad
The Gift of Music: If your campsite doesn’t have someone plucking the strings, I suggest you find a new, better class, of people. Music around the campfire is an essential part of quality camping. If your special man doesn’t have a guitar, buy him one at a pawn shop and poke him everyday until he learns the G chord. After that, he can play every song ever written. If he already plays, then buy strings, picks, or another capo. Capos are always disappearing. Also, if you find yourself sitting around a music campfire and you are not singing, ask yourself when are you going to start. This life will be over before you know it. It might be time to start singing.
Hammocks: The hammock renaissance has already begun and you are probably missing it. Hammock technology has taken relaxation to new exciting levels. With tarps and mosquito bars, hammocks can take the place of tents when it comes to sleeping. If you are camping with the family, the tent might still be the best idea. If not, you’ll have to layer the hammocks or fill one with four people and a chihuahua. For an extra cool spin, check out hanging tents. Whoa man.
Fishing Gear: Yummy. Everyone loves the smooth, quiet action of a brand new fishing rig. It doesn’t even have to be that expensive. It will last at least three months. If you want it to survive the abuse that comes with salt and sun, then spend a few more dollars. Your father figure will appreciate it. My mother in law used to give me sweaters as gifts. Really. One time she gave me a V-neck. Really. In her defense I wasn’t much of an angler back then so I wouldn’t expect anyone to give me fishing gear, but a V-neck sweater? Right.
Think fishing poles, bait buckets, anchors, tackle, whatever. Visit the Eddie Bauer landing page and see a bevy of outdoor. gear that any dad will love. He’s going to have to buy it anyway, so think of it as saving money.
Toys: What does your grown up child like to do? Frisbee, hula hoop, laser pointers? All great gift ideas. Why so serious? Everyone likes to play with toys. Maybe few tapestries to hang around the campsite. It will deter cops dressed like hippies from entering the sacred hoop.
Stanley Brand Essentials: Since 1913, Stanley Brand products have been going along on camping trips and excursions across America. From fishing with grandpa to camping with pop, these rugged products are durable enough to become heirlooms. The Classic One Hand Vacuum Mug, the Adventure Flask, and the Classic Ultra Vacuum Bottle come with a lifetime warranty so you will be able to hand them down to the next generation of campers. This is the bottle your grandfather took to work with him at the steel plant everyday. Trust me. This is a fine Father’s Day gift idea. You asked for my help. There it is.
Please be mindful when making your gift decision. This guy has managed to keep you alive until now. It’s not easy keeping a plant alive, much less a clumsy child. Celebrate his effort with an unusually well thought out Father’s Day gift this year. Cheers.
