1. A subscription to The New Yorker. This is what my dad always asks for for Christmas, and if he doesn't get it, he'll shell out the $60 for an annual subscription as a present to himself. The New Yorker, Netflix and Costco are the only things my dad will financially commit to, so I put this at the top of Father's Day gift ideas.
2. Concert tickets. One of the things my dad and I connect on is music (he may have gone to the same Blink-182 concert that I did when I was 15; hell no we did not go together or find each other while we were there), so tickets to a summer concert makes a lot of sense for a Father's Day gift. (And that was a fluke in his music taste I swear - he has a legit man-crush on Bob Dylan.) So... Crosby, Stills and Nash, Jimmy Buffett, Santana, Steve Miller Band, and my personal favorite, Rush, are all playing tours this summer along with many others. Even if your dad's favorite band only plays at casinos in the middle of nowhere now, he still may want to go. Just do a Google search and see what's up. And get 2 tickets, obviously.
3. A well-made hat. Did I mention my dad is somewhat of an adventurer? When he came through Portland to visit me on the way home from an extended stay in Thailand, not only was he decked out in traditional Thai clothes but he would not take off his safari hat. He said that when he wore it he felt "like Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamond." Yeah he said that, and he doesn't read this blog, so I can repeat it. :) If you consider getting your dad a hat for Father's Day, remember that it can be any kind of hat - baseball, fishing, hunting, golfing, safari - but make sure it's a good quality one that will last forever.
