For the outdoor dad
Does your dad spend a lot of time outside? If it is out in the garage working on cars, on the boat fishing, in the shed woodworking, or just sitting on the porch watching the world go by no dad should be “bugged.” This is why these leather fly swatters (small-$6, large-$10) by Andrew Yoder are perfect for the outdoorsy dad!
For the dad who is still a big kid at heart
As the saying goes, “Boys don’t grow up, their toys just get bigger and more expensive.” So if you have a big kid in our life, then you should consider this handmade tractor trailer ($150.00) made lovingly by R&B Woodworks. If you’re lucky, maybe your dad will let you play with the truck too.
For the dad who needs his morning pick-up

This mug will be his go to in the morning to get him that jolt of java that he is jonesing for!
