Show Dad appreciation this Father’s Day

by Susan Neuhalfen

Father’s Day is coming up again and the only thing harder than shopping for a man is actually finding something that you KNOW he will love. We’ve compiled a list of gift ideas including affordable “wants”, “needs” and “experiences” that might be just the right present for the dad in your life on Father’s Day.

BBQ Basket – BBQ is a Dad-thing. Go to Grill This and put together a basket of stuff including tools, cleaning hacks, spices and more. If you know exactly what he wants and you want to jump off the deep end, they have Green Eggs, Smokers and Gas Grills, too. www.facebook.com/grillthisbbq

Bone Daddy’s – Seriously good food in this place. Take Dad out for a great meal and there’s no grill to clean up. It’s also very casual, perfect for a comfortable family outing. Bone Daddy’s 3258 South I-35 E., Denton, TX. www.bonedaddys.com

Crossfire Defense Academy & Range – Opening soon in Flower Mound, Crossfire features a huge indoor range, self-defense classes and fitness led by a former Navy Seal. Lots here for real enthusiasts. www.crossfiredefense.com

Go Ape! – The whole family will enjoy this treetop adventure course. Enjoy ropes, obstacles and zip lines for a 2-3 hour time period. For those who aren’t participating, there are paths through the woods that allow you to follow and take pictures of your family throughout the majority of the course. www.goape.com/Locations/Texas/Plano

Dallas Zoo – A campout at the Dallas Zoo? You bet! Spend Father’s Day weekend at the zoo with behind-the-scenes activities, s’mores around the campfire, continental breakfast and up-close animal encounters. It goes from 7 pm on Saturday to 11 am on Father’s Day. Sleep at new Camp Okapi campground tucked away in the Wilds of Africa. Tents include cots, fans, and electrical outlets.

Dallas by Chocolate – Father’s Day Foodie Tour happens the day before Father’s Day, Saturday, June 17 from 10:45am until 3:30 pm. It will start at the Pecan Lodge and take Dad on a tour of carnivore havens and a brewery to boot! Price includes transportation, water and soft drinks on the bus (you may also bring your own beverages), food samples, beer at brewery and much more. Drinks at other venues are on your own. $4 off each ticket with 4 or more.  Enter code EAT. www.dallasbychocolate.com

Cinnamon Creek Ranch – It’s like bowling, but much cooler. Cinnamon Creek Ranch features an archery range that plays like a golf game. They have several indoor/outdoor ranges that cater to everyone from beginning archers to dedicated bowhunters and it’s fun for the whole family. Their pro shop is second to none, offering all of the top brands as well as knowledgeable staff. www.cinnamoncreekranch.com

Pure Synergy Massage – You won’t find a better massage therapist (especially for men) than Robyn Arbogast at Pure Synergy. Go all out and give him a 90 minute massage. Robyn is all about healing through massage, so she will work out all the kinks. She’s awesome.

JT Clothiers – At JT Clothiers in the Denton Square, they have a great selection and the staff is only too happy to help you find exactly what you need for dad. Here are a few suggestions:
Menswear by Saxx – It will be the one (and only) time he will be grateful that you gave him underwear as a present.
Jack Black line of products include men’s hair and grooming as well as body wash. It’s a very popular line for a reason.
Mizzen + Main sport shirts include button-down oxford style in a sport shirt material. Very cool. Plus they have Pete Millar featherweight polos and more. They also carry Tommy Bahama clothing which appeals to all men.

Car Detailing
– Nothing makes Dad happy like a clean car. Take the car to a good auto detailer like Kwik Kar Wash and Detail Center in Flower Mound. They’ll do an amazing job. Then tell him the kids did it. www.gokwikkar.com
