Father’s Day gift ideas that are new normal-approved.
We’re holding off on a plane ticket or a tailored three-piece suit set as Father’s Day gift ideas this year—the new normal deems it necessary to rethink our presents for pop.
The pandemic has been especially hard for Senior citizens, who by all means aren’t allowed to wander past the house door. But whether your dad is part of the over-60 club or just about to approach it, the current situation gives us more reason to spoil them rotten with gifts that’ll keep them occupied.
Maybe next year, we’ll be able to surprise our dads with that all expenses-paid cruise we’ve been dreaming of giving them (or at least a five hour-long dinner-and-dance evening with his friends in his favorite restaurant), but for now, indulge them with presents that are fit for the present
Anything inihaw is forever dad-approved, and most of us have memories of our fathers doting over their marbling masterpieces as they grill lunch by the backyard.
If grilling were a sport, our dads are the MVPs. Update his arsenal with a George Foreman grill he can use both indoors and outdoors.
