Father's Day can be a doozy! Unlike other holidays there are really no traditional fall back gifts and often you need to be pleasing not just the hubs but dads and father in laws as well so we know it can be crazy! That's why we at Denver Date Nite have compiled a list of our top picks for Father's Day gifts:
1. For The Cowboy Dad
This is awesome for those more outdoorsy types looking for an experience. Our pro tip - pack some snacks in a light cooler, bring the shade tent and some camping chairs. They do have stands you can sit in but it's way more comfortable on the hill behind where the kids can run around when they're getting restless while you kick back and relax.
2. For The Dad Who Likes Some Quiet
Some Time Alone (Or Maybe With A Few Buddies)
Is your guy the outdoorsy type? Hook him up with a day he never saw coming. There are a few steps so take care to plan:
- Hop online and get him a fishing permit
- Dust off that tackle box and stick a gift card to Bass Pro Shop or Cabelas inside.
- Pack a cooler with his favorite snacks, sandwiches, and maybe even a few beers.
- Rent him a boat or map out some hot off shore fishing spots
- Wake him up and send him off!
3. For The Dad Who Likes To Spice It Up
Sexy Photo Shoot
I know, it sounds so uncomfortable but he would LOVE it, I promise. Any it's really all about finding the right photographer to make you feel comfortable. We love Angelique Lechele Photography who's offering these shoots at a super reasonable price. Shoot her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to book.
4. For The Dad Who Likes The Outdoors
Father's Day At Long Meadow Ranch
For $225 you can send him for a fly fishing day he'll never forget. Treat the father figure in your life to an amazing day of fly fishing, and a true "feel good" day at Long Meadow Ranch. These trips are excellent memory builders, and we often see fish over the 20 inch mark, sometimes pushing 10 pounds. Just $225 gets you on the property with a guide, all the gear you need, an awesome catered lunch and possibly multiple fish of a lifetime!!
5. For The Dad Who's A Hippie At Heart
Goat Yoga is a new type of yoga class where goats roam throughout the class to provide laughter and positivity! Goats are known for being playful and whimsy and can help us unwind from stress and remind us to be playful in our lives as well. This class will have baby fainting goats roaming throughout the class who love to be near people!! $20
6. For The Stressed Out Dad
Float Tank and Massage Combo
Our friends at Peace of Mind Massage have put together this creative package. This package combines a traditional 90 minute massage with 90 minutes in their float tank. Floatation has many proven benefits like stress reduction, pain relief, faster healing and recovery times, improved relaxation, and significantly improved sleep. So whatever ails him, this gift would be amazing!
7. For The Dad Who Loves To Cook
A Whole Hog Butchery Class at Il Porcellino
For $125 your special guy can enjoy a whole hog butchery demonstration that includes meat and cheese to snack on, a light dinner, and goodies to bring home!
8. For The Super Dad
A Super Hero lunch together at The Melting Pot
For $45 per person (kids 12 and under are free) enjoy an interactive 4 course meal with a fondue course included, of course, while Superhero's wander the restaurant fighting crimes and visiting tables.
9. For The Trendy Dad
Spice up the boring haircut routine with a stop at Spruce. This barber shop/retail clothing shop/beer offering shop is a welcome change in itself. Throw in some cocktail mixing from Chad of Williams & Grahams and it's a party. Book any service and they'll throw in a $25 gift card to Williams & Graham for your next date night.
10. For The Dad Who Likes The Finer Things
Send him up to Longmont where $50 will get him a 3 pack of Camacho American Barrel-Aged cigars. What goes with 3 barrel aged cigars? Why a flight of four whiskies hand selected to pair with those cigars of course. Oskar Blues will also be on site in the backyard offering pulled pork sandwiches and munchies.
