If there’s one thing every dad needs to do, it’s eat and drink. So this holiday, forget the tired old cards, forget the cigar boxes, and — seriously — forget the necktie. Give your dad the gift of food this year with our comprehensive gift guide, which includes spirits, meal kits, and yes, plenty of red meat —though science says he should limit that.
Nothing is quite as comforting to your good ol’ dad than some smoked meat and some spirits, right? Olympia Provisions, an authentic and house-made charcuterie and meats company from Portland, put together a hand-made salami gift set and paired it with a flask ($105) for the ultimate all-in-one gift box.
Does Dad love drinking craft beer but lack the inherent talents (and space) required to make his own beer? Pico Pro ($799) takes all of the hassle out of home brewing. You just need a few of the PicoPaks (which can brew beers from the likes of Flying Dog Brewery, Pike Brewing, and Fate Brewing Company), time to ferment, and the ability to enjoy an ice cold beer.
If your pops is the kind who likes to lay low, consider buying him a nice bottle of wine this Father’s Day. It’s a simple gift, but it’s one that simply says “I love you.” We recommend a bold, full-bodied red wine for ol’ dad. So pour a big glass for the both of you and check out 15 things you might not know about Father’s Day.
