5 Fabulous Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day. Once a year. A chance to buy dad that brand new shiny silk tie he has always wanted! No, strike that. No Dad wants a tie. Ties remind him of work and the boss and commuting and the 50+ hour work week. No, what you need to do this year is to surprise Dad with something that means fun and relaxation and lets him totally forget about work! Let’s look at five great options for Father’s Day 2017!

#1 — A hammock! Hammocks serve but one purpose in life — to let Dad chill out and nap the afternoon away, blissfully unaware that he has a huge list of chores! (But those can wait until next week!) At, we have a wide selection of different style hammocks. Some can be hung between trees or on one of our solid hammock stands. And your choice of materials is wide as well, from recycled, post-consumer rope to our Geneva Quilted Hammock, which is two soft layers of comfy fabric. But wait! The ultimate “Dad Hammock” is the Clarion Cradle Chair, a modern twist on the classic hammock that can be hung off your pickup or SUV’s trailer hitch and is perfect for tailgating!hammock

Next up, a Tiki Bar! No need to buy plane tickets for Punta Cana or Barbados, when you can have your own Tiki Bar in the backyard! So start stocking the bar, put the beer on ice and ask the neighbors over! Our Tiki Bars come in either handsome treated pine or in low-maintenance vinyl and both allow you to add matching stools and optional lighting packages, so you can linger long after dark! Bonus points: No need for a designated driver!

#3 on our 2017 list of alt-Father’s Day gifts is a fire pit. So, OK, it might take a wee bit of work for Dad to light the fire, but after that, a fire pit is pure joy. And science has proven that watching firelight actually lowers your blood pressure! One of our absolute favs is this remarkable “Third Rock,” model, where you can actually set the world on fire. Or opt for something more traditional like our Manta Ray model that’s the perfect combination of form and function!

Our 4th tip is a natural one; the classic Adirondack chair, which, when you think about it, is almost like an outdoor version of your dad’s favorite man cave recliner! The gentle slope of the back and the wide arms have made these chairs classics for over a hundred years and we’ve got them in multiple styles and materials. Find the one that you think matches your dad and tell him to sit down and put his feet up! Speaking of which . . .

Our 5th Fifthroom “Dad Relaxer” is a footstool. Let’s face it, sitting is way better if you can stretch out and get your legs totally elevated. We have footstools that’ll match his Adirondack chair or just about any other style outdoor chair in wicker, cedar, teak, cushioned or polywood.


So, repeat after me; No More Ties, No More Ties . . .
