Father’s Day is right around the corner and if you’ve got a dad who loves to entertain or loves to be entertained, then this is for you. Entertaining is all about having the right tools and I’ve got three things you can get to help him out.
If your dad is a Grillmeister or the King of barbequing, here’s the perfect present for him. This grilling must-have is called the ManGrate, a grilling enhancement system that sits on top of any grill and turns aluminum grills into pro grills. It not only holds in the heat, but it sears the meat and locks in the flavor, leaving you with perfectly cooked chicken, burgers, steak and even fish! In honor of Father’s Day, ManGrate is having a special, which can be found here.
If your dad likes to turn the heat up on something other than the grill, Tabasco sauce is a great option for him since it comes in several different flavors. Find the recipe for grilled chicken skewers–both Tabasco and honey bourbon here.
For the dads who like to shake it up, there are a few essentials that can help him out. A cocktail shaker, muddler and classic glassware like martini glasses, highball glasses for mixed drinks and rocks glasses for drinks over ice are all necessities.
If he already has these tools, he might need something like an all-American bourbon whiskey as his drink’s main ingredient. My Dad’s Day favorite is Russell’s Reserve, which was actually created by the father-son duo Jimmy and Eddie Russell. The two are partnering with Operation Once in a Lifetime, a nonprofit that raises money to provide free flights home to U.S. military service members stationed around the world. During the month of June, a portion of Russell’s Reserve sales will be donated to this cause.

Lastly, a great present for the caffeinated dad who loves his coffee and doesn’t want just an ordinary cup of Joe would be the new Nespresso Pixie.
It not only has the fastest brewing time of 25 seconds, but it’s smart and lets you know your now—switches off automatically and lets you know when water needs to be added. The Pixie is also small and has a great design, so if you have a travelling dad, he can take it with him wherever he goes!
It’s also stylish and it’s offered in several different colors as well as versatile in that your dad can make several different drinks including a cappuccino with a milk frother, a latte, a macchiato, and even an espresso martini if he wants a little kick with his drink.
