I’m having a VERY difficult time picking out a gift for my future father in law To be honest I’m having a hard time with my fiance’s mother too, but I think I’m going to get her some pearl studs.
Basically my future father in law is not sentimental. He owns a harley but he’s only rode it about 2 or 3 times this year. He is a mechanic by trade and after work every day he works out in his basement (free weights). He enjoys cooking but doesn’t use recipes really. He LOVES spicey foods, but not the just spicey for heat (if that makes sense) he loves the flavor.
I’m hoping someone out there has a father or inlaw and can give me some ideas.
Anything jewelry like he wont wear because he’s a mechanic. Cologne he wont use.
Any help is REALLY appreciated.

@smurphy0806: He sounds EXACTLY like my father! Harley-owning former mechanic.
Well, we got pregnant on the honeymoon and are “giving him a baby girl since (DH) took his away”
But my Dad also likes fancy salsa with chips and books about Reagan.

@smurphy0806: If he’s a Harley owner, those guys are usually going to be pretty happy with anything Harley related. Trust me, I know a few. =p Also, what about giving him a nice, yet functional pocket knife? You could even get it engraved or something like that to add a nice touch to it. I’ve seriously never gone wrong with a pocket knife.
Regarding spicy food, you could always make and can him some salsa perhaps? It’s football season and time for baseball playoffs after all! I know we go through the chips/salsa during this time of the year! hehe
