I know, Father's Day is here this weekend and I've procrastinated on this article. If I hadn't it wouldn't be right, since every everyone knows that "guys are terrible at picking out gifts". That might be true, but I want to kick things off by saying two things. First - the best gift you can buy any Father this year is to give him the opportunity to take a trip with his son or daughter and spend time sharing stories, teaching skills, and even just listening. It's tough to be a guy sometimes and this opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy a moment without having the distractions of life clouding the mind is one of the best things you can possibly give him.
Second - ties and "best dad ever" mugs are great, but let's focus on stuff that will be useful in his life. This means tools he can use to build, cook, and explore the manly side of life.
