1. Grip it. Flip it. Serve it. Made out of bushed stainless steel, Stake functions as tongs, spatula, or a fork. I imagine it would be perfect to save myself from having to fetch additional utensils. Awesome
cooking grilling ware.
2. It’s not too late, or early to buy a darn good jacket. I’ve never been a big fan of cotton and only fell in love with Merino wool since Triple Aught Design introduced it to me 5 years ago. I recently discovered Ice Breaker and have a few of their t-shirts. Absolutely love them. Light, soft and they pack really small. The Quattro Hood, or anything from Ice Breaker would be a great gift for Father’s Day.
3. Moving on with more Merino, I also really like Darn Tough Vermont socks. They have socks for any occasion an use, i.e., running, hiking, office, or even Berry Compliant pairs for the Armed Forces. Check out my review on Hunting Boot pairs if you missed it. Since, I’ve added several running, 1/4 crew, and Argyle socks. Keep your Dad’s feet happy all year long!
4. If my kids really loved me (they wouldnt), they would bite the bullet and show me their appreciation with Triple Aught Design‘s new softshell jacket, 2012 Stealth Hoodie LT jacket. Like the Predator hardshell, also 100% waterproof, it’s likely lighter and more flexible. I enjoyed my Predator for several years, but needed to cut down on the bulk – it was a pretty heavy jacket. As mentioned in a newsletter, the most significant upgrade this year is the seam taping construction throughout the jacket to prevent water from leaking through the seams and waterproof fabric with four-way stretch. It has yet to be released, so my imaginary children will be on stand-by.
5. I’ve been talking about it for two years now, but it would be great to visit the Smithsonian again. The last time I visited was in 1999 – our visit was only 4 hours! Horrible, I know. I could spend several days there. Your Dad might not like the Smithsonian; this is what I’d want for Father’s Day, after all.
So there you have it. Five things I’d want for Father’s Day. Being absent of children, I could probably buy all five myself.
