Top Gifts for Outdoorsy Dads
Shopping for dads can be tough. Store ads tell you he needs another "World's Best Dad" tie. Dad himself jokes how there better be a Mercedes in the driveway with a bow on top. But you're probably looking for a gift somewhere in between. Something that says "I put some thought into this." Something that's practical, that he'll use often and think about you when he does. Maybe something a little on the unique side, something he wouldn't think to buy himself. We're here to the rescue. We've compiled a list of unique, thoughtful, practical gifts for Dad — whether he's an outdoorsy guy, a car lover, a fisherman, or his own breed. You know him best, so take a look at the gift ideas below and find his next surprise.

Even the most outdoorsy of dads needs a little protection from the blazing sun. That's where this tailgate awning tent by Rightline Gear comes in handy. Make his day outdoors much more enjoyable with this shade-supplying, water-resistant canopy for trucks and SUVs.

Stromberg Carlson Stake and Grill

There's something about dads and grills, right? Well, now your dad can do his thing wherever there's a fire pit with the Stromberg Calrson Stake and Grill. You can swivel the grill on and off the fire or even raise and lower it to bring food closer to or farther from the flames. The best thing about this gift? It's a gift for you, too, since you'll reap the reward of dad's famous burgers.

etrailer 2-in-1 Exterior Windshield and Wiper Blade Cover

Need a practical gift for the guy who has everything? The etrailer 2-in-1 Exterior Windshield and Wiper Blade Cover fills that need perfectly.

In winter, he can flip it around to use the laminated blue side to catch snow and ice and remove it with one quick movement. It's the kind of gift he'll use all year round (and if you're not already his favorite kid, you probably will be once this baby saves him from scraping ice off his windshield during this winter's first surprise snowstorm).

Coghlan's Multi Tool Pocket Knife

Dad has tools. But does Dad have a tool that's a knife, screwdriver, bottle opener, can opener, pair of scissors, tweezers, saw, file, fish scaler, awl, hole punch, corkscrew, and toothpick all in one? This handy little multi-tool is the perfect companion when he's camping, fishing, hiking, or RVing. It even comes with a key ring.

Kelty Deluxe Lounge Reclining Camp Chair

Your dad probably already has a favorite chair. (You know, that one in the living room no one else sits in, where he retreats for post-dinner naps and watching the game.) But does he have a favorite outdoor chair? The Kelty Lounge Reclining Camp Chair is the ideal outdoor chair for dads, featuring 3 different seating positions so he can get comfy anywhere.
