Christmas Gift Guide for Dad’s


I am not sure if I am writing this post for everyone out there or writing this so my wife sees it and gets ideas for me.  Either way here are a couple cool things that I think would be great for any dad.  If you are a dad reading this, you may want to forward this to your wife and just play it off as a link to a funny joke.  Hopefully she will keep reading and get some ideas.  So I guess I need a joke.

  • As the lawyer awoke from surgery, he asked, “Why are all the blinds drawn?” The nurse answered, “There’s a fire across the street, and we didn’t want you to think you had died.”
  • How can you tell when a lawyer is lying?
    His lips are moving.
  • How many lawyers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Three. One to climb the ladder. One to shake it. And one to sue the ladder company.

Okay, now that I pissed off all the lawyers, I will wait here for my paperwork and get started on the gift guide.  Remember I have two boys, so I am really writing this from the stand point of a dad with boys.  Also I am hoping you’re not expecting a lot of tools in this guide because you will be disappointed.

Ryobi Inflator

Rybi InflatorIf you have kids, you know what it’s like getting older and trying to blow up balls, pool floaties and other things that take air.  After turning blue in the face, what do your kids do?  They take the ball, run away to play and you’re left there trying to recover for the next two hours.  Not anymore with the Ryobi inflator.  This is probably one of the most used tools around our house.  It has saved my lungs, my insanity and my kids learning new curse words.  Check out the Inflator.



Ridgid Vacuum

Ridgid VacuumWe just got this about a month ago, but if you have kids, you know the mess they make.  I feel like myself or my wife are always walking behind them cleaning up crumbs and other messes.  In fact, if this Tools in Action thing doesn’t work out, I know I am a shoe in for a maid.  Check out the Vacuum.





Libbey Craft Brew Sampler 6-Piece Beer Glasses Set, Clear

Beer MugsOnce your kids finally fall asleep, oh who am I kidding, even when they are awake, it’s always the perfect time to tie one on.  Oh wait, I forgot I had lawyer jokes at the beginning of this.  I have to watch my a** with what I say.  Remember never get drunk and never drink in front of your kids.  Okay now that is out of the way, who doesn’t like to have a cold beer with a nice frosty mug?  This pack is cool because you can get a variety of glasses for a low price. Check out the Mugs.



Monster Brew Home Brewing Supp Complete Beer Equipment Kit (K6) with 6 Gallon Glass Carboy, Gold

Beer BrewWho doesn’t want to make their own beer?  Now I haven’t tried this kit, but I have heard about it.  If you know a good kit to get started with, leave a comment down below.  But seriously, how cool is it to brew your own beer, well if you have time.  Check it out





Presto 06301 Dehydro Digital Electric Food Dehydrator

DehydratorI posted about this in another gift guide, but I don’t care. Once you make your own beer, you have to enjoy home made Beef Jerky.  I have been on a huge jerky kick trying all sorts of things.  I bought a dehdyrator from Walmart, but wish I would have gotten this one.  This one is nice because you have more control over the temrature and other things.  Not to mention my kids love beef jerky. Check it out



BBQ Mate – Barbecue Set 16pc – Stainless Steel

BBQ ToolsWho doesn’t need a good BBQ tool set?  I bought a wood handle one awhile back, but I ended up leaving that out in the rain a couple of times and it got destroyed.  So now I pay a little more and get the Stainless Steel.  It lasts a long time, well at least until my kids start throwing them around and using them as swords against each other.  Just joking, I forgot the lawyers are watching. Check it out



Legendary Whitetails Men’s Realtree Camo Outfitter Hoodie

hoddieI don’t have this, but I am getting it.  This not only looks warm, but it’s functional and cool.  I just have to make sure I am not wearing this when I am fighting with my wife, too easy to see. Check it out





EZ Drinker Beer & Soda Can Holster Belt, Holds 6 Beverages

Can HolderI have never seen this before, but it sure looks cool.  I don’t even need to be out hunting, fishing or at the game.  I will be wearing this around the house, even the shower.  Now I just have to figure out a way to get the old cans out and new fresh cans in place.  Oh wait, I have kids.  Wait what am thinking?  I keep forgetting about the lawyers.  Yes, I am against child labor and having my kids participate in any drinking or work. Check it out



Bradley® Original Smoker

SmokerBeside jerky, I have been getting into smoking meats.  I have been using my old Weber grill and it’s been awesome. However I still can’t stop eyeballing a real smoker.  This seems to have good reviews.  I am not saying this is the best one on the market, just an idea.  What smoker do you use?  Check it out




US Marine Pistol Kit

Air SoftI bought this airsoft kit for my kids and they love it.  This has been a great way to teach them about guns and gun safety, plus it’s fun for me too.  It’s a great way to not break the bank.  Check it out




If none of these gift ideas appeal to you, then there is only one thing to do.  Either check out Bass Pro or Cabela’s
