With Father’s Day coming up this weekend, I thought I’d share my list of gifts I’d love myself (or recently bought); most of these are available through Amazon Prime prior to the weekend if you order by Thursday! Anyway, here are a few things I’m into as a Dad and you may want to check out yourself if you haven’t gotten around to getting Dad that special gift yet:
- The Most Awesome WeedWhacker – I know, not the traditional item that shows up on Father’s Day gift lists, but let me tell ya, after years of whacking weeds with a smelly gas-powered weedwhacker, this model is a welcome relief. Some people go with an electrical powered model that requires a cord but that’s really annoying. And the first battery-powered model I bought was weak and I had to return it. But alas, this Black & Decker NST2036 Heavy-Duty 36-Volt Cordless Electric String Trimmer
handled my half-acre yard with tons of edges, corners, playsets, a pool and more on a single charge. I’ve used this one several times now and it’s one charge each time and it works like a champ…and I don’t smell when I’m done.
- Minnow Bucket and Aerator – Another weird one, I know. But I just went on a fishing trip with the boys and after seeing the other kids and dads catching these huge Bass and Pike all weekend using minnows while we caught sunnies with worms, this year I bought us some minnows ourselves. We caught some huge fish! But the problem was that within a couple hours most of our minnows were dead. I looked over and some of the other dads had these nifty minnow buckets with aerators attached to keep them alive longer. By the time we left Sunday (2 days later), the minnows were still alive! Anyway, here’s a nice one you can get with a flat bottom so it won’t spill water in your car when you’re driving – Frabill® Min-O-Life Bait Station Cooler,
- Tons of Tools Up to 50% Off – Amazon is offering up to half off many different tools and you usually can’t go wrong with replacing an old wired tool with a cordless model like this DEWALT DC970K-2 18-Volt Drill/Driver Kit.
