Your dad has done quite a bit for you, so with Father’s Day right around the corner, now is the time to plan out a gift and make it count. After all, he’s the one who taught you to ride a bike, drive a car, and maybe even grill your first burger. Your dad deserves the best, so what can you get for him this Father’s Day? There’s no reason to settle for getting him a tie or a “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug.

Luckily for you, we have a few suggestions in today’s blog. We decided to think outside the box a little bit and come up with some gifts that, while unconventional, if given straight from the heart are sure to please all of the dads out there, so keep reading for our suggestions!

What Can You Get For the Dad Who Has Everything?

Buy a Propane Tank

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that you should buy a propane tank for your dad. Our name is Mighty Flame Propane after all. Is it a practical gift? Sure, but it’s one that you know your dad will get a lot of use out of and he’ll think about you every single time he fires up the grill. Heck, he might be reminded of you so often that he decides to call you up and invite you over to dinner. It’s a win/win situation! Click here to find a propane tank exchange location near you.

A Pocket Knife

Every dad loves pocket knives and it’s just a fact of life that no man can have too many of them. Different days call for different knives, so why not offer him something that’s classic? It’s hard to go wrong with the Number 06 from Opinel. It’s easy to throw into any pocket and it’s simple to use. You’d be hard pressed to find a more well-designed knife. As an added benefit, you can have your last name engraved on the blade, overwhelming your Pa with sentimental feelings.

A Pair of Boots

Every man could use a comfortable pair of boots and these classics from Thorogood ought to do the trick just fine. They’re comfortable, good looking, and easy to wear in pretty much any situation your dad might find himself in. Whether he’s behind a desk at the job or going for a hike on the weekends, a pair of moc toe boots from Thorogood make the perfect gift. They’ve been made in the United States for several decades and we’re sure your dad will be thrilled to have a great pair of boots that will last him for years.

A Good Book

There’s just something about a good book that nothing else can compare to. Whether your dad is an avid reader and you get him something from one of his favorite authors or you decide to get him something you’ve read and loved, we think that all of the dads out there would be happy to get a book from their son or daughter that had some thought put into it. Pretty much anything by Stephen King is a good choice, but dads everywhere are also known for their love of James Patterson, Tom Clancy, or William Faulkner.

A New Wallet

If your dad is anything like most dads, he’s in desperate need of a new wallet. There’s just something about fathers that make them keep a wallet for long after it’s stopped actually being useful. Treat him to something that he’ll get use out of for decades to come. We love this beautiful leather wallet from Holtz Leather. It’s timeless, durable, and rugged–just like your dad. Trust us when we say that he’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness of a gift like this.

A Great Shirt

Your dad probably also rotates through a handful of shirts, disliking having to shop for new ones. Why not do your dad the biggest favor of all and find him something that he’s sure to love and wear for years? A classic oxford shirt should do the trick just fine, and this one from Flint and Tinder is sure not to disappoint. It’s made in the United States and it’s the perfect weight to wear all year around. With summer right around the corner, this shirt is likely to be a staple in your dad’s closet and something that will remind him of you every time he puts it on.

A Nice Meal

What’s the one thing that every dad is guaranteed to like? It doesn’t matter what his tastes are in everything else, because here’s what all dads have in common–they love a good meal. Your dad has spent countless hours perfecting the recipes for his favorite meals, so why not let him rest on his big day? You can take the initiative and plan out a menu that allows your dad to sit back and relax while watching a baseball game. Get in front of the grill and you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a satisfied dad this Father’s Day. Need help? Our Father’s Day burger recipe is sure to be a winner, but you can plan anything you think is sure to please your dad.

Happy Father’s Day from Mighty Flame Propane!

No matter what you choose to get your dad for Father’s Day, the key is to think about how to make your dad happy. For some dads all it takes is a case of root beer and a hug; for others a thoughtful gift is the perfect way to show your dad that you care. Either way, we think that with a little bit of thought, you’ll find that the key to the perfect Father’s Day is all in the planning.

So head out and buy a propane tank, grab a wallet, or make a meal, but remember that it’s always the thought that counts. From the team at Mighty Flame to all of the families out there, we wish you a safe, fun, and happy Father’s Day. Enjoy yourselves!
