Gifts for Dad’s Favorite Drink

June 12, 2013 | By | Comments (1)

One man can only wear so many ties in a lifetime, and though we know he’d appreciate it, let’s just skip the “Father of the Year” t-shirt this year. Instead, give dad something he really wants — something to drink! You still have time to order all these — we made sure. Last hour to order is listed with each item.

Dad likes coffee: If your dad’s coffee maker is anything like my dad’s, it’s seen better days. It still makes decent coffee, but the heating plate is charred; the lid is changing colors from all the steam; and there’s a permanent ring in the pot because he’s walked off and left the last dregs of coffee to burn into a thick tar. Get dad a new coffee maker this year — one that can make coffee for him before he wakes up and can shut off  automatically when he’s been away too long. Try the Bella Dots Programmable Coffee Maker ($44.99, target.com). It’s modern, sleek, and available in several different colors.
Last Day to Buy: Check the shipping options when you check out. It will offer delivery date estimates.

Dad thinks he is a mixologist: Is dad more of a chemist in the kitchen? Give him glasses worthy of his creations. The Tim Love Double Old Fashioned Glasses ($34.95/set of 4, surlatable.com) have a little personality — see the quote in the bottom of the glass — but are still sophisticated enough he’d be okay using them with friends.
Last Day to Buy: Order by June 13 at noon Eastern.

Dad likes to tend bar: Help him entertain his guests with a bar tender’s best friend: the Microplane Stainless-Steel Citrus Bar Tool ($19.95, williams-sonoma.com). He can pop the top off a beer or zest an orange peel to finish off an Old Fashioned, all while spouting off sports stats or flipping burgers.
Last Day to Buy: Order by June 13 at 9 a.m. Pacific.

Dad likes his whiskey: Besides giving him a bottle of his favorite hooch (or maybe one of our favorite bourbons), give him something worthy of storing and serving such a treasured liquid. The Lauren Ralph Lauren Glen Plaid Decanter is stately but refined.
Last Day to Buy: Order by 11:59 Eastern tonight, June 12.
