Show the dad in your life a little homemade love this Father’s Day. Skip the cologne and golf balls and try one of these extra thoughtful gift ideas.
Breakfast in bed: Start his day off right from the start. Fill a tray with his breakfast favorites and include a card like this one to thank him for all he does. Need help with a recipe? Whip up an egg in a heart-shaped hole or this brown sugar grapefruit paired with fresh-squeezed juice.
Beer Making Kit: Is he a craft beer enthusiast? Give him a home brew kit by Brooklyn Brew Shop. We chose their Everyday IPA, but they have a variety of different brews depending on how he likes his hops!
Beard Oil: If you don’t have time to make your bearded papa’s gift yourself, pick up a bottle of homemade organic beard oil from the newly launched Beard Essentials. Grooming at its finest (and hippest)! The classic woodsy scent has a citrus top note that is just manly enough without the overkill.
Grilling Wet Rub: If he continually plays grill master, make him a homemade wet rub to add flavor and spice to whatever he cooks up. This recipe marries salty and sweet and looks good gifted in a mason jar and plaid fabric.
