Cool Gift Ideas To Give Dad For Father’s Day

I think we are all past the point of getting dad a tie for Father’s Day. That gift is more cliché and I really haven’t thought that a tie was a great gift at all. Now we might fall into the rut of getting dad the same thing over and over again. Well here are two gift ideas that you can get your father that he will like.

The first gift idea is whiskey. Why not get him a whiskey that is known for its quality. Jack Daniel’s has a large variety of different whiskeys for your budget.

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire

With the exponentially growing flavored whiskey category, and the huge success of Tennessee Honey, Jack Daniel’s nationally launched Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire earlier this year with blazing success. Finely crafted with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey and blended with a proprietary all natural red hot cinnamon liqueur, Jack Fire delivers a smooth, whiskey-forward drinking experience enhanced by a sweet yet complex hot-cinnamon finish. Its elevated character and flavor profile lend itself to enjoying on the rocks, mixing cocktails, and is the perfect gift for the new-to-whiskey drinker in your life.

It has a suggested retail price of $22.99 and is available in a 750ml bottle.

Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select

A fine, hand-crafted single barrel whiskey with a robust flavor and Jack Daniel’s smooth charcoal-mellowed character. The world’s only charcoal-mellowed single barrel whiskey is Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select. Just one out of every 100 barrels are set aside to mature in the highest reaches of our barrelhouses, where dramatic temperature changes cause the color and taste to deepen further. This product is the perfect option for those with a strong appreciation for premium whiskey. You can pick a bottle up for a retail price of $45 – $49 for 750ml in U.S.

Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select

Jack Daniel’s Sinatra Select, crafted from special “Sinatra barrels” and bottled at 90 proof, is truly something spectacular. These Sinatra barrels have deep grooves on the inside of the staves — which exposes the whiskey to extra layers of oak. This imparts a rich amber color, bold character and a pleasant smokiness, followed by an incredibly smooth vanilla finish. The ‘Nectar of the Gods,’ as Frank often referred to his favorite whiskey, could be seen with the entertainer on stages throughout the world from the 1950s through the 1990s. Sinatra would always offer a toast to his audience with a glass of Jack Daniel’s in hand. Now you can offer your own toast to Sinatra with this premium whiskey. This sells for around $185.

For the dad who was in the military this next gift would be a great fit. It is from Duke Cannon.

There is the limited edition item for Father’s Day, 2015. It is Duke Cannon’s Father’s Day Kit. It includes the following items that are very cool and some are very nostalgic. You would get one military issued .30cal field box. There are three ‘Big Ass’ Bricks of Soap: ‘Smells like Accomplishment,’ ‘Smells like Victory,’ and ‘Heavy Duty’ Hand Soap with one Superior Grade Shave Cream. You also get one three-pack sleeve of Duke Cannon x Calloway custom Golf Balls, Limited Edition.

Does your dad like fishing? Well there are three fishing lures in there and you and your dad can both talk about the one that ‘got away.’ There is a Stanley Phillips-Head Screwdriver, one bag of Country Archer Beef Jerky, one bag of David’s Original Sunflower Seeds, one bag of Big League Chew, and one pack of 1987 Tops Baseball Cards.

Hang Ten And Chill With A Surfer’s Martini

I have tried surfing a few times. To be honest I was awful at it. It is much tougher than it looks. Yet I think I can handle a surfer’s martini. The Surfer’s Martini, made famous on the sands of Southern California by the thrill-seeking, wave-chasing duo that created Peligroso Tequila, is a simple-yet-stirring twist on the classic cocktail.

In case you didn’t know June 19th is National Martini Day. So if you are at the beach on that date or heck even at home you might want to try to make the Surfer’s Martini. Just consider trading in the vermouth and olives for something with a little more thrill and a lot more agave. As always please enjoy responsibly.

Surfer’s Martini

1.5 oz. Peligroso Silver Tequila

Lime Slice

Pour Peligroso Silver Tequila into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with lime.

It Started With The Air Jordan I. Get Yours This Weekend

You will never forget your first. Nike and Jordan Brand are bringing back the shoe and colorway that started the Air Jordan franchise. It all started with the one. White. Black. Varsity Red. Words can be thrown around about how “timeless” and “classic” these are, and they wouldn’t be wrong. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG returns in the original colorway, helping celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Jordan Brand. Get yours tomorrow on Nike.com.

The Air Jordan I was first released in 1985 to the public. Michael Jordan came into the league in 1984 and did not wear the Air Jordan I until halfway through his rookie year when Nike finally made the shoe available for him. The first Air Jordan was red and black. Nike used that colorway of red and black to match the Chicago Bulls colors. When Michael finally wore the pair in an NBA game, he was fined by the league because the shoe did not have the color white on it. Every time Michael wore the red and black Air Jordan I, he was fined $5,000. Jordan signed a five year contract with Nike for $2.5 million when he came into the league, so the fine wasn’t that hard to take.

Nike took the “outlawed” shoes and used it in their ad campaign to sell the first Air Jordan. There were a few commercials out there to sell the sneaker. One was of Michael Jordan dunking at a playground, one was the “Banned” ad that had MJ’s kicks get censored in the TV spot, and one even had Jordan playing Santa Claus. Before Jordan NBA players did have their own shoe, but no shoe has ever had the fanfare the Air Jordan line has had with sneakerheads.
