Whether it’s a Father’s Day gift, anniversary gift, or just a because gift, we’ve got some fun suggestions.
1.Dad’s Little Helper: OK, so the Rolling Stones didn’t write a song called Dad’s Little Helper, but you can bet if they did, the man in your life would be swilling this down while listening to it. Dad’s Little Helper is Rogue’s unique version of a malt liquor, created by brewmaster, John Maier. John assures, “This ain’t your Dad’s malt liquor.” He has “Roguerized” the recipe by adding 40% Midwest corn, lightly hopping it with Oregon Crystal Hops, and then lagering it at a warmer temperature to help bring out the sweet, crisp flavors of the corn. Sold in all 50 states for about $5-$8 bucks, so find it at your local beer distributor or Visit the Website . 2. Swedish Firesteel: Light a campfire, barbecue, or stove with this tool that can create a 5,000-degree spark. Able to function even when wet, the Army Firesteel offers as many as 12,000 strikes and is bright enough to be used as an emergency flare. Plus it’s a cool conversation starter- “Hey baby, can I light your fire?” Available at Amazon for $17.97. 3.Sh*t My Dad Says" Book by Justin Halpern, former Maxim.com contributor and the guy with 1.3 million Twitter followers, brings his curse-filled father/son bonding moments off the Internet and onto the printed page. Each chapter begins with an off-color yet sometimes heartwarming tale, whether it's his father discovering his porn stash or his dad's take on the hereafter, and ends with quotes of brutally honest wisdom: "When I die, I die. I could give a shit, 'cause it ain't my problem. I'd just rather not shit my pants on the way there." Retail price $15.99 at book stores everywhere. 4.Timberland Yucatan Leather sport sandals: Get him a great pair of summer sports sandals that will last.
