No Thanks

Father's day is fast approaching, and sometimes shopping for a guy that loves the outdoors can be tough. Here are a few Father's Day suggestions for the outdoors dad, friend, or grandpa your life that deserve a treat. 

1. CanCooker Jr.

Cancooker for outdoors dad

An outdoors dad burns up a lot of calories camping. Make sure your dad is fed this Father's Day with a CanCooker Jr. You can rely on the CanCooker Jr. to give him great-tasting meals, many of which can be cooked in as little as an hour.

For your dad's award-winning chili or that slow-cooked meal that's going to keep you going out in the wilderness, get your dad a CanCooker Jr. to class up whatever the meal of the day is! The CanCooker Jr. uses steam rather than boiling to preserve nutrients and keep food extra tender. 

2. Portable Fire Bowl

Portable fire pit & bowl

Whether you want to roast some hot dogs, cook some marshmallows for s'mores, or just have a good flame on a nice night out, a Portable Fire Bowl is the perfect gift for any outdoors man or tailgater.

Your dad will love having a campfire that goes where he does. Super easy to carry with bag and mesh cover included. Grill can be used with charcoal or logs—no mess or contraptions to deal with. Everyone loves a campfire and every man loves making fire! A perfectly portable gift to be used time and time again to bring the family closer.

3. Sportula 

Arkansas Razorback Spatula

You're always running out of spatulas, and those plastic-capped ones just won't do! Not when it comes to grilling, at least. These stainless steel sports-themed spatulas let you flip your burgers with ease, while sporting pride for your dad's favorite college or sport's team.

Get one for your grandpa that has #1 Grandpa. Doubling as a bottle-opener, this is a gift your dad will be sure to remember every time he breaks out his grill or just opens a beer!

Everyone at the tailgate will be impressed by your dads burgers when they cook with an indentation of the University of Arkansas logo on them! Check out if your favorite team is in stock (it probably is!).

4. Man Cave Folding Chair

Black Man Cave Folding Chair

No one wants to sit on stones when camping or on the back of a truck at a tailgate. Show your dad some love with the gift of relaxation with the Man Cave Folding Chair.

Easy to open and folds up in seconds, this chair also comes with a cup holder for added convenience. Man Cave Folding Chairs are manufactured with UV and water-resistant fabric to keep it from fading or wearing despite the heaviest use. 

5. Man Cave Folding Table

Man Cave Folding Table

Even though some chairs come with a cup-holder like the Man Cave Folding Chair, when you're tailgating or roasting hot dogs and s'mores under the stars, who has just one soda (or beer)? 

The Man Cave folding table gives four extra places for drinks while also being a sturdy yet portable table.

With durable fabric and four cup-holder slots, no more shoving a can into the sand at the beach so it doesn't tip over. No more balancing drinks on cars at the tailgate. Super lightweight and folds out in a pinch, the Man Cave table gives you that flat surface and beverage-holding that you never seem to have when you need it most. 

6. Infrared Cooking Thermometer 

Electronic Infrared Cooking Thermometer

When you're at a tailgate or out camping—it's not Thanksgiving dinner. You don't wanna lug around some meat-thermometer that may or may not have mercury inside it!

This Father's Day, get your dad an Infrared Cooking Thermometer and watch him smile as technology and guy-stuff combine to make the ultimate useful gift for the meat-lover and tool-junkie in your life. Laser-point targeting allows you to perfectly pinpoint the heat of whatever is on the menu. And let's face it—it's just really cool to use. 

7. 12-Volt Portable Stove

12 Volt Portable Stove

For the dad who knows how to camp on the go, a portable stove like the 12-Volt Portable Stove can let you slow-cook beans, gumbo, and goulashes like a breeze. Beans, chops, rice—just plug the stove into any outlet or cigarette lighter to bring a little bit of home to the road with a portable electric stove.

When a mere flame won't do and you don't want the hassle of a whole grilling get-up, a 12-Volt Portable Stove gives you everything you need with no encumbrance.

8. Two Person Dome Tent

Portable 2-person tent by Exporer

Roomy enough for two people while still being a breeze to set up, a dome tent makes the perfect Father's Day gift for an outdoors dad who could use some new gear! Get the Explorer Two-Person Dome Tent that is built tough, and comfortable.

With sturdy two-pole easy assembly and flame-retardant PU fabric (which is a good choice near campfires), a dome tent makes the perfect, sensible gift for a dad who probably hasn't bought a new tent in a decade!

For the dad who gave you shelter, give him one back that will keep him dry while he unplugs and enjoys nature. 

9. Champion 4000 Watt Generator

Champion Portable Generator

The Champion 4000 Watt Portable Generator gives you the best environmentally-friendly, portable power generation for your buck. There's a reason they say every man should have a tool box. It's the same reason why the Boy Scout's Motto is "Always Be Prepared."

For powering the fun or for managing a crisis, having a simple, no-fuss means of generating electricity can make all the difference in the world.

So whether you need to power your devices for luxury or for necessity, your dad will remember that this gift helped him keep everything and everyone online when it mattered the most! 

10. Road Trip Classic Grill

Coleman Roadtrip Portable Grill

For the father that always mans the grill, get him a gift that will keep him feeling like a grill-master whether on the road, tailgating, or camping out. Nicer than most home-grills, this propane-powered Coleman Road Trip Classic Grill lets your dad separate dishes with side serving platters and interchangeable heating elements.

Optimized to balance portability, power, and style, this grill has removable "mix & match" surfaces to switch use between grill, griddle, or stove and to keep foods separate. Folds up for convenient use on long road trips or a tailgate where your dad is cooking for more than one! Say "Happy Father's Day" with a grill any man would be proud to display. 

We hope this Father's Day Gift Guide help make it a little easier for you to find the perfect gift for the outdoors dads on your shopping list!
