Unique Father’s day gifts he’ll love
Just when you’ve recovered from Mother’s Day, it’s time to honor the other side of the family. Dad’s day is coming right up.
Instead of just grabbing him something boring or cliche this year (please, not another tie), here are some Father’s Day gifts sure to please.
Here’s gifts dad really wants for Father’s Day.
1. Chocolate-covered bacon:
What makes bacon more delicious than bacon? When it’s covered in chocolate. It’s surprisingly easy to make, too. Cook up the bacon, melt some chocolate chips on medium-low and add a scoop of peanut butter chips, for fun. When it’s melted, dip the bacon in the chocolate and let it dry on parchment paper.
2. Binoculars and a digital camera:
Dads love their binoculars, whether it’s for duck hunting, bird-watching or just scanning the mountains on a hike. Kick it up a notch and get him a pair of binos with a built-in digital camera, video camera and telescope. Then try to get Dad to leave this gadget at home — ever.

3. Cozy slippers:
Dad will love slipping into a new pair of sheepskin, shearling slippers. L.L. Bean makes the absolute slippers, hand’s down. These aren’t cheap imitations. They’re high quality and the real deal; they’ll last for years. You won’t find a more comfortable pair, whether they’re for your dad to wear around the house or while traveling. As if the soft shearling wasn’t already perfect, L.L. Bean added a memory-foam foot pad on the bottom, so Dad will feel like he’s walking on clouds.

4. An experience:
Sometimes the best gifts don’t come from things, but rather memories. If you are looking to give dad a truly unique gift, consider giving him an experience. Cater to what you think he would enjoy. It could range from anything from fly fishing lessons to sky diving to a cooking class or even tickets to see his favorite team.

Not all experiences have to be massive. Even planning a day around dad (think about his favorite things) would create a lasting memory.
