Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

It just so happens it’s coming up on June 21, just in case the procrastination bug has struck again and you need a friendly reminder. The Isle® is happy to share some different gift ideas which may help get the creative juices flowing. Most men don’t need another tie, paperweight or gift card, so we recommend really understanding what he truly likes to do and then putting a little spin on it. There’s no need to panic about the deadline and every reason to take a few minutes to come up with a clever present this year.

There are countless interests a dad might have. Maybe he loves boating, fishing or baseball. He might binge watch a certain TV show on Sundays or go out for frosty cold beers on Friday nights with his best friends. He may work on old cars or fix appliances whenever he has a spare second. Pay attention to how he spends his free time, and you won’t go wrong in picking out a gift for him. More specifically, we’d like to point out some uncommon items that we would heavily consider for our own dads here at Isle.

A Subscription – Every dad is into something. If he always has a wrench in his hand and can’t stop tinkering, try a subscription to a mechanics, motorcycle or automotive magazine. Or if he likes to travel and the outdoors, a nature, photography, or excursion publication might fit the bill.

Tickets – For the ultimate fan, get him tickets to see his favorite team knock it out of the park, take it down the field or win it at the buzzer. Or for the music buff, tickets to the band of the decade, the jazz singer he loves or the symphony he has to hear!
Experiences – Every guy enjoys a thrill, whether it’s the chance to drive a race car, paragliding or a less active activity, like a round of golf or scenic boat ride. Give him an experience to remember and then finish off a great day with an exciting night at his favorite gaming table at the Isle.

If your husband or dad likes to cook, get the chef of the family a pizza stone or a manly, meat-centric cookbook. The technically inclined cook will love a smart grilling device, one which can sync to a phone and monitor temperature and timing. Thinking about what the dad in your life loves the most will be much appreciated and something he’ll remember forever.

If you want to give dad something that he will enjoy, we invite you to the Isle. On Father’s Day Calypso’s® will satisfy his taste buds and his stomach! Dads can feast on crab legs and prime rib for just $16.99! You could also pay for a few rounds of your dad’s favorite games like craps or blackjack. We want to recognize all of the wonderful men on their designated day.
