Dad Dilemma? Gifting Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is only a few days away, and your father deserves a special something on his special day. However, high-tech gadgets and gizmos can break the bank, and sometimes a tie just won’t cut it. Check out a few creative, fun and special gift ideas for your father:


  • A Gift for the Grill Master.

Whether it’s slathering a nice slab of ribs with barbecue sauce, or making sure those steaks are cooked to perfection, grilling can sometimes be a messy job. Instead of buying a regular apron for your Iron Chef, make him a customizable DIY apron, and decorate it with special messages to ensure he will look stylish for your next big, backyard barbecue. You could also make him a grill set holder to house all of his trusty grilling tools!

  • Let Him Crack Open a Cold One.

With just a few simple supplies like nails, glue and cedar wood, you can build your father his very own bottle opener, ideal for a simple Saturday hangout or the perfect party. If you’re looking for a nice and smooth cocktail for your dad’s specific liquor tastes, check out these, including a habanero martini and Lynchburg lemonade. Grab some of these mason jar lid coasters to set them down on!

  • Have a Father-Feature Movie Night.

Nothing says “I love you” like a special movie night outside with your dad. Simply take white sheets and a projector, find a clear space and nestle down with the family for a feature film. Or invite the whole neighborhood! And what’s a movie night without popcorn?! Check out this quick and easy way to spice up your favorite popcorn – plus it makes a great standalone gift.


Whatever interests your dad may have, the best kind of gift is quality time. Have a happy Father’s Day from all of us here at Mahaffey Tent and Event Rentals!
