For The Man Who Feels Complete When Grilling
Grilling season is here, so consider gifting a Blackstone Griddle. There is much to choose from, including the best seller 36″ Griddle Deluxe Package, plus free shipping. The griddle comes with “5 essential accessories: hard top cover; surround table; tool kit; breakfast kit; and basting cover. Other items in the brand line include griddles with 2 or 4 burners, in sizes from 17″, 22″, 28″, and 36”.
Table Top Griddles
You may also want to consider buying a table top griddle which can be used in and outdoors for a variety of foods. These griddles have an ‘H’ style burner that provide even heat distribution during cooking. And cleaning this griddle is made easy with the wipe of a paper towel.
For the sports fan and tailgate party fanatic, the Tailgater Combo griddle is the perfect gift. It has adjustable legs, 2 burners, and versatility in cooking styles. A sure win.
Make sure to check the Blackstone collection as there is beyond-your-grilling-imagination with the Grill + Kabob Powered Rotisserie Grill, a Single Burner Rec Stove, and wait for it – a Pizza Oven.
For The Outdoorsmen
Thermacell Halo Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller
The Thermacell Halo Mosquito Repeller is a great companion for the grilling man. It is sure to keep away those menacing mosquitos while relaxing on the deck or patio with family and friends. The Halo is a great alternative to sprays and other repellents as it is scent-and-DEET-free.
Thermacell Halo features include:
- 15-foot zone of protection
- 48-hour fuel system
- 12 hours of refills included
The Halo comes in a compact size and design and offers three colors, making it a great gift.
We wrote about the HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro earlier this May. We still think it’s a great Android phone to consider given its FullView Display across a 6-inch screen and its HDR10 technology for vivid and bright colors. It has dual lens cameras that have a wide depth of field ability, take 3D panoramic pictures and video, which can be uploaded to social media with a swipe up, and for the movie watcher on their phone, the MicroShare option is an added feature as the big screen comes to life on the phone. It also has an ergonomic curved glass casing, comes with a clear, rubber case, and is water-and-dust resistant.

Mugsy Jeans are known as the most comfortable men’s denim on the market, so you won’t be risking a clothing purchase that they won’t want to wear. Available in multiple washes and colors, there’s a pair for everyone on your list. Our favorite are the Squid Inks, which are a true, monochromatic black jean. Made from the flexible Mugsy Denim that they are known for, the Squid Inks are supremely soft and comfortable. The Squid Inks are just what dad needs to top off his jeans game.
Flag and Anthem
Flag & Anthem was started by two real guys who worked in the business long enough to realize something was missing. They didn’t want to pay bottom of the barrel prices for cheap looking stuff and they didn’t want to get ripped off either. They created Flag & Anthem to fill that void. They make clothes that let you be fully yourself. Not too baggy and boxy, but not so skin tight that you feel like you’re about to pop a button if you move too quickly. They make clothing for guys who are too busy enjoying life to obsess about micro-trends. They make classics that are always cool. Clothing that expresses who you are in a steady, decisive way without needing to shout about it. Because real confidence means knowing you don’t have to try that hard. It’s the kind of look you can wear at a concert, a tailgate party, or a first date, knowing you’ve got something authentic on. Something that says you know who you are.

Run on these “smart running shoes that track data your phone can’t, plus real-time coaching to improve your run.” Runtopia offers an advanced running shoe with “ultra lightweight, spring-loaded smart soles” for moving forward faster and reducing fatigue of the joints. There is a downloadable app to manage your runs and connect you with other runners. An added perk is the real-time coaching, which helps you run smarter. If you buy a pair, consider adding a Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbuck’s gift card, one in each shoe for that next coffee run. We are sure this would make Dad very happy plus keep him fit at the same time.
Showaflops are truly a fun Father’s Day gift on the heels of summer beach days ahead. And, make sure to read about their “Flops For A Cause” as the company is involved in different initiatives helping people and animals. Showaflops are “bacteria-fighting, quick-drying” flops that help prevent “foot problems relating to fungus and bacteria.” Great for use in spa showers, gym showers, or even for the beach. The brand’s site doesn’t mention anything about preventing sand during your beach walks, so knowing how sticky sand is, you’ll probably have to “shake off and showa” those flops.
We all know shoes make the man, so why not gift them the best – a pair of custom Italian Eredità shoes. Each pair is handmade in family-run Italian factories and are completely customizable for even the pickiest guy on your list. The shoe shown above is “handcrafted in Florence from a luxurious suede, with a thick white rubber sole for enhanced grip and style.” These are perfect for summer walking, and dad can definitely dress these stylish shoes up or down. Ciao, bello!
We hope you have found some shopping’spiration for that list of yours.
And, remember, you can always throw in some fun things, like a favorite candy, or a favorite cookie for some added father-bonding moments.
Happy Father’s Day shopping!
