Fire pit

Take the bonfire up a notch and get dad an outdoor fireplace. Throw some marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars in a gift bag and you have a great way to spend summer nights together. After all, quality time is always the best present.

Gift card

Getting a gift card for your dad might feel a bit impersonal but Wright & Simon, a high-end men’s clothing boutique, offers made-to-measure men’s dress shirts. Shirts cost about $150, but dad can come in with his gift certificate when he has time to get measured and pick out the fabric of his choice.

Bathing suit: What dad couldn’t use a new bathing suit that he can bum around in all summer? Pick up a colorful Vineyard Vines or Southern Tide suit.

Jacket: Castaway Clothing’s Survivalon Classic Jacket is the ultimate item for outdoorsy dads. It’s wind and water repellent with plenty of pockets for a cell phone tablet and a pair of sunglasses.

Reversible jacket: Peter Millar’s Canton Reversible Jacket is a great traveler’s item. This two in one piece is a, casual jacket on one side and a sport coat on the other. It won’t take up too much space in his suitcase when he’s packing for family or business trips.

Remember all those family vacations growing up where dad had to take pictures and videos of everything and everyone? Chances are, not too much has changed, except maybe the technology. Get dad up to speed with a Canon EOS 80D—it’s great camera for both video and still photography.
