The thing about picking something out for Father’s Day is we tend to repeat the same kinds of gifts year after year. So, instead of getting him another sand wedge or that limited edition rock concert T-shirt, try something that will tickle his taste buds. Whether he’s all about snacks, steaks, or sweets, there’s a gourmet goodie to make his day a memorable — and delicious — one.
Here are 10 of our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas that will show him how much you care.
Other than this shirt, nothing says “I love you, Dad” more than a collection of his favorite steaks. Featuring two cuts each of filet mignon, New York strip, ribeye, and top sirloin, each steak is wet aged for 21 days and trimmed to exacting standards. Turn these into a delicious Father’s Day dinner he won’t forget. Or let him do the cooking if he wants to be in charge of the grill. If so, gift No. 3 is right up his alley.
Every classic “dad food” comes packed inside this crate, from bacon beer cheese dip and pepperoni sticks to cookie bars and Moose Munch Premium Popcorn. It really is the perfect gift for him to work on his dad bod. Plus, the reusable wood crate has a chalkboard front, so he can use it to store all his mementos from the day or write something new on it.
Is your dad a chef at heart? This Father’s Day grilling gift box stars four grilling sauces, including a wing sauce and bacon chipotle BBQ sauce, and a peppercorn spice rub that will have him itching to fire up the grill. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, he can try his hand at indoor grilling and whip up something delicious for the family.
Not every dad enjoys cracking open a cold beer; some prefer uncorking wine bottles. Consider gifting Dad this wine gift box, which comes with a bottle of Harry & David Royal Crest Red blend. This rich merlot pairs well with a wide assortment of savory gourmet snacks, such as hickory smoked summer sausage and sharp white cheddar cheese. The wine can also accompany any steak dinner that may be happening (hint hint). There’s nothing wrong with getting him this and gift No. 1…
There are some amazing food combinations: peanut butter and jelly, bagel and cream cheese, caramel and sea salt. And now fruit is getting in on the sweet action with this pears and cherries gift. The perfect combination of buttery Royal Verano pears and juicy cherries is great for casual snacking or makes a bright addition to any cheese board or appetizer spread. Pro-tip: Grab his favorite chunk of blue cheese or sharp cheddar and pair it with a few slices of pear for a sweet and savory treat.
Sweeten up movie night with Dad with an extra special gift. The Dad’s Favorite Things Gift Box comes with five flavors of popcorn, including butter, caramel, and ranch, as well as DeBeuk® Piroulin chocolate wafers and hazelnut wafer cookies. No matter what film you’re watching, he’ll be a happy camper. Another pro-tip: Don’t try sneaking this into the theater.
After all those years of him letting you win at Uno and Connect Four, it’s time to play the games Dad likes. The Game Night with Dad Gift Set comes with a deck of poker cards and a box of dominoes. These games can get intense and cause extreme hunger. Good thing this delightful gift comes with five flavors of Cheryl’s cookies, chocolate pretzel clusters, and butter toffee peanuts, as well as a bag of mixed nuts to give a dose of salty flavor to the sweet treats.
How about surf and turf for Father’s Day dinner? These two favorites — four beef filets and four Maine lobster tails — are easy to prepare, but just in case the resident chef needs a little direction in the kitchen, detailed cooking tips are included. No doubt, this meal will be one Dad will remember for years to come.
Treat your father like royalty this Father’s Day with gourmet strawberries. These beautiful berries are dipped in milk and white chocolaty confection, and then decorated with milk chocolate drizzle, ground toffee, or mini chocolate chips. Royal treats for royal dads.
