  2. Beer – If your dad is like mine, then he’d love an evening at a local brewery sampling some of the local craft brews.
  3. Gift Certificates – I know, I know. It sounds like such a cop-out. But, maybe go more along the lines of a fancy restaurant for a date night with mom. There really is no better gift for dad than scoring points with mom.
  4. Local Shows – Check the local paper and see if any good comedy acts or bands are playing in your area.
  5. DIY Gift – You use to give your dad beautiful works of art that he treasured so dearly, so dig into your inner artist. Here is a cool little mustache mug DIY we found that might do the trick.
