posted on May 10, 2014 at 5:21 pm

Dad usually isn’t hard to please. As long as he has a beer in hand and control of the TV remote, things are looking up. In fact, that might just be the best day of his life.

Ok, we kid. But seriously, this lifestyle simplicity makes it super easy to choose a good Father’s Day gift. He’s not picky and won’t scoff at a present, unless it’s something completely out-of-character, like a diamond necklace or pink floral shoes. Stick to manly-sounding items, and you’ll be set. Here are some of our top dad-approved Father’s Day gifts.
