Gifts To Celebrate Dad This Father’s Day
Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and we’re rounding up some of the greatest gifts to celebrate the #1 Dad— yours! Dads come in all shapes and sizes, so we’ve curated a gift guide for every kind of dad! Shop for gifts for the Grilling Dad, the Breakfast Dad, the Perfectly-Groomed Dad, the On-the-Go Dad, and the Wine Connoisseur Dad.
We’re sharing businesses founded by dads and made for dads. We’ve even discovered a father/daughter wine-making duo who we know you’ll absolutely love. Rob, the dad, passes his love and knowledge of making wine onto his daughter, Megan. That is a family legacy worthy of a “cheers!” If you haven’t started shopping for your dad, grandpa, or husband— it’s not too late. Start shopping now and show the most important guy in your life just how much you love him. These thoughtful gifts beat the traditional Father’s Day tie every time!
Elevate your dad’s grilling game with GRILLKILT. This is not your typical apron and not a traditional kilt. The “Grill Kilt” is a premium waist-apron designed for people who love to grill. A tool belt, a towel, and a backpack walked into a bar and this is what walked out 😉
This innovative grilling accessory combines the functionality of outdoor gear with the comfort of quality clothing.
Their barbecue aprons with pockets can handle your family cookout, weeknight dinners, and more. Designed with ten pockets and five loops / D-rings to attach clips and carabiners to so that everything you need to dominate the grill is right by your side.
Get excited about buying a new barbecue apron with pockets that also comes in six neutral colors to help hide the sauce (or beer) you may have spilled while manning the grill. Need a larger size? Just add more panels.
Their high-quality GRILLKILT aprons will keep you protected and looking stylish. They’re made from a comfortable, breathable cotton material (except Black Watch Tartan color which is 100% polyester) because we know it gets intense out there.
The GRILLKILT has an adjustable belt that can be sized from 30″ and adjusted up to 60″. Rear panels can be removed or added for preferred waist coverage. Rear fabric panels (included) allow complete waist coverage of up to 46″. For larger waists, and full rear coverage (up to 58″ maximum), simply purchase additional panels (sold separately). Length: 20″
GRILLKILTS are currently offered in 12 stylish colors
The founder of Appalachian Cast Iron Co is not only a vet but a father who enjoys making unique products for your kitchen. Their flagship product was The Great American Waffle Iron. A waffle iron is one of the more difficult pieces of cookware to design and produce but they’ve seemed to master it.
This multi-generational cook piece pays homage to the 100+ year old waffle makers still in use around the country. It comes with a lifetime warranty covering materials and workmanship.
It’s produced with more mass than traditional cast iron waffle makers to ensure that every waffle is cooked quickly and evenly, providing a beautiful release every time. There is more thermal mass, so the waffle iron has little recovery time between waffles.
Classic ball and socket joint is fun to use. The split sphere design allow its use as a sandwich press, etc. It provides excellent results on gas, coil top, and glass top stoves.

Phat Scooters are the most exciting thing to happen to personal travel in decades. It’s the electric scooter so fun you’ll want to explore outside everyday. Experience ultimate freedom with a more powerful, customizable and easy-to-ride scooter. Why settle for the mundane when you can RIDE PHAT!
With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start brainstorming the perfect gift for those Rad Dads.
According to a recent report by the Motorcycle Industry Council, year-to-date electric scooter sales have risen more than 34.6% since last year, and PHAT Scooters, a recreational and commercial electric scooter company, has seen the increase in demand for micromobility first-hand.
PHAT Scooters has been quietly taking the roadways (and even golf courses nationwide) by storm and is becoming a part of the rental fleet at more and more bigger name courses. With a laid-back, fun vibe of the scooter lifestyle, the latest model is the signature Phatty G3 scooter available in the O.G., Amp’d and Golf models.
It’s electric so there’s no messing with fuel can or oil changes or spark plugs, it’s got a rack for clubs, plus a cooler and even a bottle holder for divot repair mix. It’s everything a golf cart offers in a smaller, energy efficient and more personalized package. PGA Tour champ Pat Perez described it as “like riding a couch.”
PHAT Scooters are highly customizable with base colors and a variety of fender trim colors to choose from, options like attached Bose speakers, and even a “Caddie” model that carries two bags for couples.
This special wine four-pack was created especially for Father’s Day by family-owned Washington winery Barnard Griffin. Here, father and daughter winemakers Rob Griffin and Megan Hughes work side by side!
Rob and Megan each chose two of their favorite bottles. Rob chose his namesake, Rob’s Red and Reserve Cabernet, which are perfect pairings for meat and veggies from the grill! Rob has made wine in Washington for more than 40 years. He co-founded Barnard Griffin with Deborah Barnard, Megan’s mom, in 1983. The family knows everyone in these parts. Rob is actually known as the “Dean of Washington Wine”.
On the other hand, Megan chose two perfect summer drinking wines: Barnard Griffin’s 2020 Chardonnay and the award-winning 2021 Rosé of Sangiovese. Megan takes responsibility for all white wine production at Barnard Griffin. She makes the Rosé with her father. That wine is special to them both!
The combined retail price for these wines total is $97. However! Megan and Rob are offering a 30% discount on the pack, pricing it at $67.90 +shipping, in honor of Father’s Day!
