Another tie probably won’t cut it. I mean, after all, he is your Dad. He taught you everything you know, but maybe not everything he knows, right? Well… there still might be a surprise or two you can come up with, and that’s why we have compiled this little list of the most unique tools Dad didn’t even know he needed. Here are our five favorite ideas for unique additions to his toolbox.
Don’t be thinking that this is one of those solutions in search of a problem. Properly cleaning a grill is hard, particularly a huge gas grill with enough surface area to land a small plane. The scraping and brushing alone is enough to wear your Dad out. This is why he’ll appreciate a three-motor rechargeable robot that whisks smartly around the grill with rotating bristle brushes to eliminate caked on grime and gunk. A built-in timer/alarm will alert when the work is done, and its bristles won’t damage grill materials. Life’s too short to spend time cleaning grills. Get Dad back to the party!
4) Dynatrap Ultralight DT150
Ordinary bug zappers are annoying, graphic reminders that you’re executing critters every two seconds throughout your garden party. There’s a better way. The Dynatrap Ultralight uses no pesticides and is whisper quiet. It simply draws insects in with a UV fluorescent bulb and a dose of carbon dioxide, which mosquitos love. Once they’re in the vicinity of the trap, a small fan pulls them into a chamber, where they quickly dehydrate and die. No zapping, no loud humming. Nothing to annoy Dad. You gotta like that!
3) Bushnell SolarBook 850
Tuck this tablet-sized solar charger into a backpack or back pocket, or even just the basement for emergencies, and Dad can be ready for any power crisis. This collapsible system provides 2 USB outputs and five photovoltaic panels that stack inside a rugged protective case. Leave it in the sun for right around three and a half hours, and he will have enough juice in the onboard battery to charge his smartphone a couple of times, and his camera or GPS up to 5 times. With all the weather weirdness in the world something like this could come in handy!
2) Bacon Candles
That’s right. Bacon candles. You gotta give Yankee Candle credit where it’s due. If there’s one scent that completes a man cave, it’s bacon. And this recent entry into Yankee’s line of “Man Candles” will ensure the scent of crispy treats completes your Dad’s Fortress of Solitude… or maybe just his workshop. Bonus… it won’t raise anyone’s cholesterol even one point!
Has Dad ever asked himself any of these questions?
Would I like to keep my products flowing with improved quality?
How can I put an end to popped caulk tubes and excess manlift runs?
Is it possible to put an end to aching muscles and cold weather delays?
If so, then a Reasor CaulkWarmer bag is for him. These bags look like the size of the bring-your-own grocery bags that the environmentally conscious among us take to the store, but with a flap on the top that folds over. You plug it in, set the thermostat, and it keeps everything ready for good product flow and improved quality. There are other bag sizes as well that will keep your five gallon bucket of joint compound or paint ready to go, or two gallon or one gallon or 20# cylinder warmers. It’s the perfect father’s Day gift idea for the Dad who wants to work smarter… not harder.
