Father’s Day is coming soon—Sunday, June 19, to be precise—so get ready to show him some love. Have you already picked out the annual, obligatory tie? If not, be glad because there’s a much more creative gift waiting for him. If you live in a Shea Homes Community you’re near Park Meadows Retail Resort and Northfield Stapleton. But if you prefer a super easy online solution, or just some guidance before you hit the stores, explore the handy links we’ve gathered below.
At our very own Shea Homes® Colorado Father’s Day Pinterest board, you can browse items sure to showcase your thoughtfulness. One utterly unique gift is a personalized wooden soundwave key ring. Yep, you (or the kids) can record and upload a sweet message or a snippet from a favorite song, and in return, Dad gets a cool keychain with the soundwave engraved on one side of a spruce or walnut fob, with the actual words engraved on the other. Very nice.
Naturally, no Father’s Day would be complete without a little grilling. Give the outdoor chef in your life one of these 26 Best Grilling Gadgets, such as a pizza stone with built-in thermometer, a stuffed burger press, or this grill light to help him decipher medium-rare on those nights when dinner gets a late start.
Next, dig into this list of 24 cool, dad-friendly gifts. For your favorite oenophile, may we suggest this sumptuous, hand-stitched leather wine tote? Or for traveling dads, there’s the clever Travel HoodiePillow, which allows him to nap on the plane (or couch) with neck support and a modicum of privacy. And plenty of coolness.
If you prefer a more handcrafted approach, don’t forget that online haven of entrepreneurial creativity, Etsy. This blog post features Father’s Day gifts with unexpected twists. Try a Honey Bomb Beer Brewing Kit, slate coasters inscribed with the best-ever football plays (yes, there’s a Broncos version), or a smartphone speaker made of recycled skateboards, perfect for the man who likes to blast his jam in the garden or workshop.
But for the ultimate in handcrafted, memorable personalization, make your own Father’s Day gift. Care.com offers 29 Father’s Day Gifts Kids Can Make, such as a thoughtfully packed picnic basket (so Dad can chill without the grill). And these crafts from Parents.com, which do double duty by keeping the kids busy and happy while they create a charming keepsake. We’re talking popsicle garden markers, desk organizers, and coin catchalls made of clay. Finish up with a customized Dad crown for good measure, and the man of the hour will definitely feel like a king for the day.
