Go ahead, search the internet high and low for best gifts for Father’s Day and you’ll find *yawn* the same boring old lists. The stuff that your Dad doesn’t really want. Hint: He doesn’t want another tie. Dad wants something that will make him grunt in Tim-the-Tool-Man-Taylor style. So if money is no object for you then here are ten outrageous Father’s Day gifts that will ensure your favourite status in the family for years to come.
The Barbecue Dining Boat – This will only set you back a mere $50,000 and what Dad doesn’t want a boat dedicated solely to barbecuing? D’uh.
The Power Nap Capsule – You know what Dad wants? Dad wants a nap. Just 20 minutes of silence for heaven’s sake. What better place than in the Power Nap Capsule.
Luxury Golf Cart – Sure you could get Dad a golf cart OR you could really step up your game and get him a luxury golf cart. No pressure. Your brother is probably his favourite anyway.
Luxury fly fishing trip – I don’t know how they do it. Standing stock still in the water throwing a line in the water, but it seems to be a big thing among the men. Of course accomodations should be top notch so you could send him to the Miramichi in New Brunswick or The King Pacific Lodge in Vancouver.
Personal Submarine – Pfft! Why should James Cameron be the only one to check out the ocean inside his own submarine. Your Dad deserves the same, no?
Cask of Whiskey – Sure, you could get Dad a good bottle of Scotch. Or you could get him his own cask from a famous Scottish distillery. A cask that he could go visit and get to know a little better over time.
Stormtrooper Motorcycle Suit – Maybe your Dad is a bit of a badass. Maybe he likes cruising round the ‘burbs on his hog. Maybe he’s a Star Wars junkie. Maybe this is the perfect gift for him.
The Pedal Pub – I have no idea why my husband finds this so appealing. I suppose the drinking and biking with your friends must be a guy thing. Yours, for only $40,000 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
Professional Microbrewery – Seriously, what else is the man going to serve on his Pedal Pub? I can practically hear him grunting from here.
Bacon Throw – Okay, okay, so maybe it’s not quite as highbrow as the rest but I don’t what man wouldn’t want to wrap themselves up in a great big ole’ piece of bacon. This little gem is quite affordable compared to some on this list and Dad will love you for it.
