Ah, the lawn-loving dad. You know the type: when he’s not atop his riding mower, he’s getting veggies sliced and spiced for the grill—and when he’s not doing that, he’s setting up the badminton net or the croquet wickets. Ready for a little one-on-one? OK, calm down, we’re just setting the scene. For the pop that’s always outside, we’ve assembled 13 little somethings to enrich the experience this Father’s Day, from hammocks to handheld tools that keep the grill extra clean. Read on for more.
It gets a little lonely in the lawn sometimes. Give Dad the gift of an outdoor companion with this friendly copperhead we like to call Cody.
What good’s a well-groomed yard if there’s nowhere in it to relax? We say the answer’s “no good,” but hey, this hanging hammock may well fill the void.
BBQ must-haves? Check. A durable place to put them? Also check. With this waxed canvas tool roll, all Dad needs to make his grilling experience complete is the food.
Help him track temps (or keep tabs on the time) with maker Chris Crooks’ hand-finished steel garden accessories.
Weeding ain’t easy. Help Pop recover from hot, sweaty days outdoors with a personal care kit developed especially for gardeners.
And you thought Dad had everything he needed to start BBQ season off just right. This triple-threat tool harnesses the power of fruits, veggies, and tin foil to help him keep his grill in tippy-top shape.
If your dad’s anything like ours, he likes his family picnics with a side of friendly competition, and these jumbo dice—handmade from solid pine—deliver.
World-famous grilled veggie skewers need upgrading? This suite of four fiendishly tasty spice blends, like chipotle and honey and classic Caribbean, may just do the trick.
When “old standbys” just become “old,” we think it’s time for a nice set of newbies. For the dad who’s most often seen tending his greenery, this three-tool set will replace worn-out cultivators, spades, and hoes.
What you see here’s no ordinary clay pot. With 44 holes spaced evenly across the bottom, it’s an ideal vessel for grilling the good stuff (like eggplant—mmm) to perfection.
Dad’s all grown up, and so is this high-tech toy. Made from carbon fiber paper, it connects to his smartphone through the power of Bluetooth®, giving him complete control over its trajectory from the comfort of his palm.
For the avid gardener, this seat’s a must-have. Not only is it a (water-resistant!) place for Dad to rest his tuckered-out tushie, it also features 21 pockets for tools and two handles for no-fuss transport.
Everyone knows Dad’s BBQs go all night. So make sure they stay totally #lit—isn’t that what this kids are saying these days?—with a light-up spatula that keeps the portobello caps flowing.
