6 Father’s Day Gifts for Real Men



Father’s Day is almost here, but don’t fret: You still have time to get the special dude in your life a gift that is sure to wow. Here are my top gifts for real men.

BBQ evangelism

Why not spice up Dad’s barbeque game with the help of some of my favorite spices from Meat Church BBQ out of Texas? The Holy Cow and Gospel will have the whole family singing hosannas. Meat Church has an amazing YouTube channel that will teach you how to properly spread the gospel. What’s more, the experts at Meat Church regularly hold classes that will have Dad ready to take on Jimmy Swaggart.

Meat Church offers the full spectrum of flavors from spicy to sweet and—great for gifts—offers a full sized sampler pack called the Ocho with the eight most popular flavors. If BBQ is not your thing, don’t overlook the Bird Baptism Poultry Brine or Texas Chili Seasoning.

New Balance shoes, white socks and jorts need not apply

Dad will be ruggedly handsome sporting the Apocalypse-tastic flannel-lined waxed trucker jacket from Huckberry. This is the jacket Pedro Pascal wears in the hit HBO series The Last Of Us. One episode in and it had me wanting the jacket I didn’t even know I needed. Tough, timeless, and made in the USA, this men’s waxed canvas jacket is constructed with a waxed and weather-resistant Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth, which like selvage denim or finely tanned leather, will only get better with age. Every guy needs a Waxed Trucker in their closet. And unlike most of the other Waxed Truckers on the market, this jacket is soft out of the box—the body and sleeves are fully lined with soft blanket lining that feels great on the skin. For the price, you simply can’t beat the quality, construction, and versatility of this bad boy.

The ultimate remote scouting tool

The Tactacam Reveal X Pro Cellular Trail Camera should be your go-to camera, since it can act as both a security and scouting camera. They use AA batteries, and unlike most trail cameras, the Reveal series has the ability to use AT&T or Verizon LTE/4G networks to instantly send you picture updates and (in the app) video. Now for the best part, there are no contracts or activation fees, and data plans can be purchased month to month. No need to pay for services outside of hunting season. Don’t like the idea of a data plan? No problem—the Tacticam acts like a normal trail camera storing footage and pictures on an SD card.

High-speed, low-drag

Red lasers are so passé! The truth is that green lasers are actually more effective, because the human eye sees green better than red in both daylight and low light. It has to do with primitive humans needing to be able to see predators though green foliage.

What I love about the Viridian HS-1 is the small non-intrusive size. On a rifle platform, most people put some type of hand stop on the forearm. Viridian basically said, we can just make the laser the hand stop. You are getting a two for one deal, and you can put the handstop exactly where you want to put your hand. In testing I have easily been able to make hits out to 200 yards using the laser only as an aiming device. I can attest that the Viridian HS-1 green lasers make harvesting a whole pack of invasive wild hogs easy.

Jet Fuel

Does Daddy need his go juice in the mornings? Caliber Coffee from Palmetto State Armory is a South Carolina small batch artisan coffee roaster. Don’t worry about that “small batch artisanal” phrasing; you won’t start wanting to wear wool caps in the summer or pronoun pins. The slogan is: Awake…Not Woke!

From the 300 Blackout extra dark roast that is guaranteed to jump start you in the morning to the milder-flavored 22cal light roast that is a great all day sipping brew to keep you on your toes. “Our vision is simple, too: bring the highest quality coffee to your cup while sharing our passion for the 2nd Amendment. We source from farms all over the world and roast our beans locally so that we can bring you the freshest batch possible. We spared no expense while crafting the new line of coffees for the Caliber Coffee Company brand.”

Cop Out? Nope …

If dad is a member of the thin blue line, he needs the Mic Loop. It’s the brainchild of an active duty police officer who was tired of his radio mic being ripped or falling off his uniform when he had to go hands-on. This ingenious device attaches to your body armor and features a 550 cord loop that hooks onto your mic’s clip. This allows you to stage the mic exactly where you need it for easy access.

The mic loops are less than $12, and have over a 95-lb. breaking force—meaning the radio will be destroyed before the loop breaks. I love that it is a small mom and pop company from a cop who needed to solve a problem.

Finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day can be challenging, but with a little thought and effort, you can make it a special day. Whether you opt for a sentimental keepsake, a practical gadget, or an unforgettable experience, the most important thing is to show the dad in your life how much you appreciate him and all that he does. So go ahead and make this Father’s Day one to remember!
