Father’s Day gift guide: what to get the man who has everything
Father’s Day can be tough. Many dads already have everything they need and rarely voice concerns about what they want. If the dad in your life already has a small boutique sized collection of ties, button down shirts, and socks in every colour and pattern you may be at a loss for what to get him this Father’s Day. Don’t worry; we have some ideas for you!
Everyone knows the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so we rounded up a few food and drink inspired gifts that are sure to make dad smile this Father’s Day. Most dads are all about practicality and usefulness when receiving a gift. That’s what these four ideas from Villeroy and Boch below offer: great gifts, perfect for manly appetites, and super useful at home.
Let’s start with food; barbecue to be exact. I can remember my dad posted up by the grill in the summer. The cool evening breeze carried the savory smell of a sizzling dinner through the neighborhood. Then, we would enjoy this delicious meal by way of a paper plate. Not anymore! Move over disposable dinnerware; dad deserves the best! Insert the Ultimate BBQ Steak Plate and instantly transform a casual cookout into the dinner party. Who doesn’t love a good summer barbecue? This plate is durable for even the biggest steak off the grill. The divided portion of the plate is an ideal spot for dad’s famous side item or his special, secret sauce.
What would a good steak be without a great set of knives? Most people use age-old knives that have been used over and over without ever meeting the sharpening block and they just don’t cut it anymore. That’s why dad may need an upgrade to these super durable and functional steak knives. They are packaged in a simple, yet classic, wooden box that makes gifting a breeze.
Now that we covered dinner, let’s talk beverages. There are few things greater than kicking back at the end of a long day with an ice-cold beer. The older I get, the more I find I really like this craft beer craze and I know a lot of dads who would agree. You know the feeling of going to a restaurant and casually sipping beer out of a frosted glass? It really makes the whole experience more enjoyable! Bring that restaurant-style luxury home to dad this Father’s Day with a new set of glasses. If your dad is in need of this beer glass upgrade, Villeroy and Boch has some great options. With a variety of styles, from a crystal stemmed beer glass to goblet-style, these glasses are perfect for any type of beer-loving dad.
Is the father in your life not much of a beer drinker? No problem, opt for this super masculine Scotch Whiskey tumbler and carafe. For a personalized touch, you could even get these glasses etched with dad’s initials or family crest. This would be a beautiful addition to an office or library space for that (often) much needed afternoon drink.
Of course, at the end of the day, nothing makes a dad happier than his kids. Happy Father’s Day and happy gifting!
