What to get the Hard to Shop for Dad

Posted by Lauri on Jun 17th 2016

Father walking daughter

Sunday is Father's Day (in case you forgot). You should always be thanking and showing your love for you father, uncle, grandpa, mentor, whoever is the father figure in your life, but I know that isn't always the case. The best gift you can ever give the man you look up to is your love and appreciation. However, for those of you that also want to give them a physical gift without breaking the bank - this is for you.

If your dad is anything like mine, when you ask what he wants, the answer is always "nothing, I have everything I need". BUT, if you're anything like me, you'll still ponder over the perfect gift for weeks. So the question remains, what do you get the always hard to shop for dad?

The Outdoors-y Dad

Paracord Bracelet with Emergency Buckle

550 Paracord Bracelet with Emergency Utility Buckle

Not only does this Paracord bracelet give you an emergency whistle and built in fire starter with a flint rod and scraper, there is also approximately 10 feet of usable Paracord (depending on the size of the bracelet ordered). That makes this bracelet a great accessory while camping, hiking, biking, fishing, and more. Paracord's inner strands can be used for fishing line, sewing thread, emergency suture, etc. and the outer strands can be used for boot lace replacement, securing items such as tarp to trees, handle grips, and much more. 

The Tech-y Dad

The Crafting Dad

Knotter's Tool

Does your dad love to craft with paracord? Whether he's just starting out or a seasoned pro, this is a great tool to have on hand.  The Knotter's Tool is made from billet aircraft aluminum and has a durable, high-luster anodized gunmetal finish. Included is a spring metal clip for precision etching, hole in one end for a keyring/lanyard, and is diamond knurled to provide a positive grip. The tip is slightly rounded so it wont snag or fray cords. Also included are three blue metal stitching needles: 3 1/2" Type I Paracord Stitching Needle, 3 1/2" Type II Paracord Stitching Needle and 3 1/2" Type III Paracord Stitching Needle. This is an excellent tool for loosening and tightening knots of all types of rope/cord.
