Father’s Day tends to be a tough holiday, especially if your go-to gifts are ties, gift cards, mugs and cologne. Of course, our fathers are always appreciative of any gifts they get, but this year, try to get a little more creative and thoughtful. Our dads are from many generations and are into many different things. To help make your gift finding less stressful, here are some tips that you might find helpful.
Fire Sticks – Watching Hulu or Netflix has become the new “it” thing, not only for the youth, but for all people, including our dads. Amazon’s HDMI streaming stick allows movie junkies to watch films whenever and wherever. The Fire Stick supports all major apps including Pandora, ESPN, Netflix, HBO and several others. They also come with a voice remote. All you have to do is simply speak into it.

Decanter- Decanters are always nice for any man to have and they come in all shapes, sizes and designs. They can be personalized with either monogram, a favorite saying or a special message from you to the father in your life. The neat thing about this idea is that you can buy decanters in a variety of ways; a set, customized, individual, etc.
If you want to go the extra mile, get his favorite whiskey to go along with the decanter(s).
