My husband is a food lover. That’s one of the things that made me fall in love with him. There’s nothing more attractive (to me) than a man who loves food and is willing to try anything. It took me a long time to find someone who can match me in my love for food adventure, which is why I make sure Father’s Day is a special time for him.
My dad is a food lover too, and one of the most impossible to shop for—which is why I send him some sort of unique food gift every year. I’ve shipped him live lobsters, oysters, beef jerky and even clam chowder from Boston.
The good thing about food-related gifts is that they are appreciated by mom AND dad. See how that works? He gets a gift = you both get a gift. That’s because food lovers are all about sharing. We share pictures of what we eat on social media, we share our baked goods at the office, and we trade bites off of each other’s plates in a restaurant.
In honor of food-loving fathers out there, I put together some of the best foodie gifts for Father’s Day (It’s June 15th, so start shopping now). I hope you enjoy this collection of Father’s Day food lover gift ideas. I already know what I’m getting my deserving dads this year. Do you?
We have one of these at home, I gave one to my mom, and I gave one to my Dad. I highly recommended SodaStream for people who like a little fizz in their drinks. We mix the soda water with fresh juices to make delicious homemade soda without the preservatives and extra sugar. Bonus: No more lugging home heavy cans or bottles and better for the environment with reusable bottles.
One-of-a-kind handmade cutting boards made from reclaimed oak and leather make a beautiful, functional gift for dad. They make beatuiful serving platters or just hang on the wall for rustic charm.
Taste Trunk sends a monthly box, beautifully packaged and filled with unique and hard-to-find artisan food products. Choose from Gourmet, Healthy, Sweet or BBQ boxes to surprise your favorite dad with again and again.Save 40% off your first one!
For the grill-loving dad, these hybrid tongs are all you need, replacing multiple tools. It’s a combination BBQ tong and temperature fork with digital display. Made from stainless steel..it’s a manly gift indeed.
Any dad would be proud to own this beautiful charcoal grill from Weber (I really want one too!). It has an easy ignite system, cook timer, and a porcelain enameled bowl. It comes in several different colors, but the copper is every foodie’s dream.
I just discovered Mouth.com and can’t wait to try them out! I’ll be gifting one of their curated foodie collections this year, full of treats from independent and artisanal food products. Gift collections include the Grill Scout, Pickle Town Taster, Coffeelicious Taster, Grin and Beer It and so much more.
Okay, I know this is a little over-the-top, but bacon lovers are always looking for the next bacon-y thing, and the Baconery has it. Whether you want chocolate-covered bacon, chocolate bacon covered with edible gold leaf, bacon cookies, bacon lollipops, bacon caramels, t-shirts or accessories, they have it.
Adorable & customizable sugar cookies decorated in royal icing make a delicious treat for cookie-loving dads. Choose your pattern and colors.
For lobster lovers, there’s nothing like a lobster dinner with all the fixings. It’s even better at home where you can relax and really dig in. Lobster Anywhere ships live whole lobster, lobster tails, steak and sides, along with everything you need to make a gourmet dinner at home.
My husband is a huge tea fan and loves anything tea. Art of Tea offers everything from tea blends to accessories. Check out their tea gift packages, samplers and tea-of-the-month club.
Dads love beer and crafty dads love to make beer. Just imagine how proud he’ll be of his own brew! This kit includes everything he needs in an easy kit complete with buckets, fermenter, beer bottles and other beer-y related paraphernalia. Choose two flavors of beer to pack inside. Each kit makes 2 gallons of beer.
