My dads not in the picture so it’s just my FIL we have to buy for but he’s like your dad. Needs nothing and anything he wants, he buys himself. Omaha Steaks had an awesome Groupon a few weeks ago that we were going to get for my FIL but I missed it by 6 friggin’ hours so instead we’re making him a gift basket thingamajig of all his “favorites” (I say “basket” but I actually kind of refuse to use a basket since those aren’t exactly manly. I’m still looking for the perfect thing to package it in.). It’s going to include…

  • A Harley tshirt (the man LOVES his Harley)
  • Specialty peanuts and pistachios (favorite snack)
  • A bottle of Goldschlager (favorite booze)
  • iTunes GC. We got my IL’s an iPad for Christmas and my FIL hogs it all the time. There are a bunch of apps he’d like but he refuses to buy them. The GC is so he can treat himself to the apps he’s had his eye on.
  • Scratch-offs (who doesn’t love a free shot at millions?)
  • A rustic wood sign for a local ice fishing spot that I found at a garage sale for a buck! When I bought it, I just thought it looked cool and would be a nice addition to his man room but after doing some research, I found out what it is. There’s a good chance my FIL may have fished there in the past (or at least know of it) so I think it’s a winner.

Tomorrow is my last shot at finding a vintage oil can or something to package it in before I have to give in and go the boring basket route. I’m hoping some of these garage sales have something good!

@MrsDrRose612: That sounds great. I’m sure he’d love it!

Some other ideas I’ve either gifted in the past or come across are…

  • For just about anyone: GC for car detailing
  • For the grilling man: Customized meat brander
  • For the golfer: Month membership to a golf club (unless you’re loaded, then spring for a year! Lol)
  • For the beer drinker: Beer of the month club or keg club
  • For the speed racer: GC to a race track so he can take some fancy car for a few laps
  • For the sports nut: Tickets to see his favorite team play
  • For the music guy: Concert tickets to see his favorite band
