Great Father’s Day Gift Ideas 2022 – Garden & Gun


My father, even at 76, puts everyone around him first, including my mother (and his fifty-three-year-old wife), his three children, and his grandchildren. And honestly, he’s not very good at it. Her idea of ​​a great gift is a long conversation at the kitchen table. But I remember one Father’s Day where I managed to get a “Wow” from him. The package was small and contained a pair of polarized sunglasses for his fishing trips in eastern North Carolina. The man never owned a proper pair until then, instead buying the cheap ones at the gas station on his way to the beach. And guess what? He hasn’t lost the good guys yet. So the lesson I learned is that it all boils down to finding the right gift for anything that lets the dad or father figure in your life really relax and have fun. Below are several ideas that might just do the trick.

For the deckchair

G&G editor David DiBenedetto introduced me Tupelo Merchandise, a Texas-based company that makes all kinds of fun outdoor products, including beach carts, cornhole boards, and swing sets.
