Remember how much your parents loved it when you played nicely with your siblings? Give them a chance to savor that feeling again by teaming up on a gift this Father’s Day. You can join forces to get one big-ticket item, or choose gifts that work together to create a little wow. Here are some ideas to get you started.
The BBQ Box Set
Summer is nearly in full swing which means one thing: Your pops has fired up the grill. Give him an upgrade this Father’s Day by going in on a group gift full of extras that he wouldn’t necessarily splurge for himself. Start with a six-piece set of stainless steel barbecue tools, add an insulated barbecue mitt, and then finish off the gift with a kitschy apron and a sauce set.
The Shave (Without a Haircut)
Putting together an old school barber’s kit can be surprisingly pricey. But split the gift with your brother and sister and you can treat dad to the ultimate shaving experience: a five-piece shave set plus a bottle of skin-softening after shave care.
The Amateur Oenophile
While you can’t give dad the cellar of his dreams, you can chip in for a wine fridge. This is a great group gift as most state-of-the-art options cost a couple hundred dollars or more. Look for something sleek, silent, and energy-efficient. If he’s short on space (hey, apartment living) invest in one he can wall mount.
The Timeless Classic
Your dad loves an excuse to dress up. However, gifting him a tie feels so elementary. And purchasing him a suit is too tricky of an endeavor. Instead, go in on a sleek time piece he can show off any time of the day. Include a watch box, so he has a safe place to store it.
The Health Nut
You’ve been begging your father to cool it with the burgers and fries and incorporate a few more veggies into his diet. Gift him a juicing package and he’ll no longer have an excuse. We’re talking a high-end juicer, recipe book, and to-go tumbler. This is a great gift to go in on with mom.
The Free-Time Filler
Retirement has your pops looking for hobbies to fill his time. Pool has always been his bar game of choice, so grab your siblings and go in on a billiards table. Stay on your mom’s good side by investing in one he can fold up and tuck away.
Happy Father’s Day!
