My dads not in the picture so it’s just my Father-In-Law 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 Father-In-Law 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 Father-In-Law 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 Father-In-Law 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
