    Father’s Day is just around the corner, so if you haven’t thought of any Father’s Day gifts or how you’ll celebrate dear old dad, the time to start planning is now.

    Will you take him to lunch? Get him a new pocket watch? Spend the day on the links by his side? The options for a great father’s day gift are endless.

    Need help homing in on just what to get him?

    Try these five creative recommendations for Father’s Day gifts on for size

    1. A barbecue masterclass.

    Have a pops who loves barbecue? Instead of just getting him a gift card or new grill tool, take it up a notch and get him full-on BBQ lessons. A great option? This Masterclass featuring pitmaster Aaron Franklin. Franklin operates the renowned Franklin’s Barbecue in Austin, Texas, which sells out daily. Diners even line up for lunch four to five hours early just to guarantee they’ll get a taste.

    Places like Central Market and Sur La Table also have cooking classes that might have something up dad’s alley when it comes to Father’s Day gifts.

    2. A tough wallet.

    Is dad more of the extreme type? Does he love hiking, biking, or riding his Harley? A durable wallet like the Ridge or the Dango may be the perfect gift. Some even have pocket knives and other utility tools attached. What more could he ask for?

    3. A creative subscription.

    Give a gift that keeps giving with a fun subscription box. There’s Sock Fancy, which gifts dad a crazy pair of crew or no-show socks every month, or you could do a coffee, wine, beer, or even beef jerky subscription box as well. Meat subscriptions, like ButcherBox, for example, can be a great gift idea for Father’s Day, too (and might pair well with that BBQ class!)

    4. A durable cooler or rambler.

    Does your dad spend his days out on the boat? Is he an avid fisher or camper? Does he just like a good tailgate? Then invest in a durable cooler or insulated rambler for his excursions. YETI and RTIC are popular brands, and Brumate is a good option if you need a good to-go cup as a great gift.

    5. An app-based meat thermometer. 

    Is dad a grill master — but sometimes guilty of occasionally overcooking (or undercooking) steak, burgers, or worse yet, chicken when he grills? With a handy app-based meat thermometer, it will never happen again. Just download the app, insert the probe into the meat, set your desired doneness, and get an alert when your food is ready. Some good options here include Meater, ThermoPro, and the MeatStick.
