Great Gifts for Dad

5 Great Gifts for Dad


Don’t you just breeze through Mother’s Day? Moms are so easy to pamper and spoil on ‘their’ day. A nice breakfast in bed, flowers, a little chocolate – and mom is so happy.

Dad’s Day, on the other hand, is like “what can I get for the guy who has everything”? What can I get my dad or hubs for Father’s Day that he can really use and really like? Am I right? I know I am. Men are more practical, so you have to put a little thought into their gifts.

Hence my quick post about 5 Great Gifts for Dad. Especially if your dad is one of those outdoor guys, a family man or a guy who loves cool gadgets, or food – then we’ve got you covered. These gifts for Dad go from super inexpensive ($10.99) up to about $250. So read on and see what you think.

1. Pak Lite Pocket Flashlight

Pocket Flash LightThis super – efficient little pocket flashlight is totally awesome. I keep one on my nightstand, one in my purse, and in my car. My husband keeps them stashed around the house as well as in our camping gear. Cool features include: It gives off a tremendous amount of light AND it the plastic end glows in the dark, so you can always find it!!! The Pak-Lite Basic snaps to the top of a 9v battery. Just replace the nine volt battery and you’re good to go again! Use for emergency packs, keep in your cars, camping and anywhere else you might need a light. It gives you about 20 hours per battery and 10,000 hours of light for flash light itself.

I LOVE this thing; so will Dad! Great Father’s Day gift for $10.99.  Shop Pak Lite >

2. Woof ‘Em Sticks

Camp cooking toolsThese little gems are too much fun for outdoor guys, family guys and guys who love to eat!
Wrap pre – made refrigerated dough around the little cups. Toast over a campfire, fire pit, bar-b-que or just some coals carefully placed in your back yard. Take your toasty little tart and fill it with dinner or dessert! If we’re doing dinner we put out options like, chili, pulled pork, taco meat, shredded cheese and toppings to accompany that yummy stuff. If we’re doing dessert (and you really have to try these to believe how awesome they are) we put out chocolate and butterscotch pudding, pie fillings like cherry or key lime pie! Whipped cream of course. Ice cream with chocolate drizzle is nice. Even butter with cinnamon/sugar sprinkled inside is amazing. Just serve your family’s gooey, yummiest favorites and everyone will have a blast. A set of Woof ‘Em Sticks (with a hot dog roaster attachment) is only $24.99. A single Woof ‘Em Stick is $12.99, but it’s more fun to do together! Shop Woof ‘Ems >

Straw Water Filter

Easily drink safe, great tasting water right out of a stream.

3. XStream™ Water Filter Straw

This is a great gift for the dad that’s into outdoor adventure, like hiking, camping, backpacking, fishing, hunting, kayaking and / or preparedness. The Xstream™ Water Filter Straw is one amazing gadget.Perfect to take on any outdoor adventure and not have to pack water!

Sagan™ – the company who makes it, has had it tested by independent water filter labs. The results are astounding. It has more capabilities than a Life Straw, as it actually removes virus for up to 300 gallons. Wow! Plus you don’t have to lay on your belly to drink from a stream, lake, or river. It has a straw which is up to 4’ long. So stand up for Pete’s sake and drink safe water. Shop XStream™ >

4. Kelly Kettle®

Kelly Kettle Outdoor Gear – Cooking on the Hobo Stove

If your dad has not been introduced to the renown Kelly Kettle® and has any interest in the outdoors or prepping, he will LOVE this thing. I have seen grown men cry watching it work… well, not cry, but it’s ridiculous how enamored they become with it. It’s a camping kettle / camp stove which boils water super-fast, cooks food and does it all with natural fuel. It’s been around for over 100 years and the folks who developed it in Ireland keep adding improvements and cool accessories. The Ultimate Kit is the best way to go if he hasn’t got any kettle equipment yet, as it has the Kettle and all the cool accessories in one box. If he’s got the Kettle there are tons of things he’d love, like the Hobo Stove or new Camping Cups and Plates. These things are totally awesome! Shop Kelly Kettle >

5. AquaBrick™ Water Filter

Water Filtration System This is the most awesome water filtration system we’ve seen yet. Made by Sagan™ – the XStream™ Straw manufacturer, The AquaBrick™ Water Filtration System will deliver safe drinking water within minutes removing harmful bacteria, virus, cysts, such as cryptosporidium and giardiq from any non-salt surface water. They have third party laboratory tests done ‘til the filter’s end of life. (Meaning when it quits working) Kind of important to know… The system comes with two AquaBrick™ Containers, one to scoop up three gallons of water; the other to fill with your clean safe filtered water. Simply fill the AquaBrick™ with water, insert the water filter into the AquaBrick™. Use the hand pump to pressurize the brick, and safe purified water will quickly dispense from the spigot. Great for camping, and all outdoor activities. Also an amazing emergency preparedness tool, as it makes your swimming pool water drinkable! Pretty cool, eh?
The AquaBrick™ Containers are also sold separately (another great gift for Dad) and make perfect storage containers, so Dad can use them to store anything in the garage, like food storage, water storage or anything which needs to be kept safe from the rodents or the elements. Shop AquaBrick™>
