If your dad loves riding ATVs and UTVs as much as you do, the ATV.com Father’s Day gift guide has you covered with gift ideas he’s sure to appreciate.
Father’s Day is fast approaching and we thought we’d help you out for arguably the hardest person in the house to buy a gift for. Father’s Day got its start back in June of 1910. It was intended as a day to honor the accomplishments and contributions of fathers to the family. How many of us have had our dads take us to practices, wrench on our machines when they break down, or get us out on the lake fishing on an early summer morning? So now it’s time to honor dad with a day all about him. The ATV.com Father’s Day gift guide includes some great gift ideas for dear old dad on his special day.
Camp Chef Pellet Grill
Is there anything more “Dad-esque” than grilling some meat out on the deck? Dad’s like to grill and they like to smoke meats, too. That’s why pellet grills are all the rage right now. When they first came out, pellet grills seemed rather mysterious to many. Would it be as fast as a gas grill, or as messy as charcoal? That’s why I would go with a Camp Chef pellet grill. It has a digital control that tracks the temperature and feeds the wood pellets into the grill to maintain an exact temperature and smoke level. Your father can grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and barbecue with awesome wood-fired flavor, all from a single grill. I would love to get one of these grills this year!
Metric Bolt Kit
Metric bolts? As a gift? If your dad rides ATVs, trust me, he’ll really be into this. I speak for many when I say that you can never have enough metric bolts as spares around and when you lose one, it usually means a trip to a specialty store or the dealership to find one that will fit the application. This is a 236-piece metric bolt kit specific for ATVs and UTVs. Save your dad some frustration and get this kit for him. He’ll really appreciate it. It’s might not be the most fun gift, but there’s a reason it’s in our Father’s Day gift guide.
Spare 10mm Sockets
Who likes to hear dad swearing in the garage while throwing wrenches, tool boxes and pretty much anything that isn’t bolted to the floor? The reason, nine times out of 10, is because he lost his last 10mm socket. I can’t tell you how many of these I have lost over the years and even though I have some now, I NEED more – lots more. Save your dad’s sanity and get him some spare sockets.
Kolpin UTV Plow
If you live in snowy regions, I’m betting dear old dad goes out and keeps the driveway cleared out when it snows. I’m betting that he has talked about getting a plow for the UTV, too, but thinks that it is too much money, or that it takes too long to install. Kolpin fixed all that with the Switchblade plow series. It is a universally-designed system that can fit any ATV or UTV, and can be assembled and installed in about an hour. Save dad from shoveling with this plow and he’ll thank you later!
If you are looking for an affordable option in our Father’s Day gift guide that you dad is likely to use all the time, getting him a sweet moto-brand hat is a great idea. Any one of these hats would make a great gift for a dad to get from his favorite little off-roaders. I know I’m always on the hunt for a new hat to wear and I have my eye on a few of these. Now if I can just get my kids to buy me one…
Fly Fishing Kit
If your dad likes to fish, this is a great kit for fly fishermen, from beginner to experienced. It has a rod, reel, line flies and all the tools needed for an angling adventure. It even comes with a case and a carry case for the accessories. The best part is, it compacts down to a size that would easily fit into a UTV, or on the rack of an ATV, so dad can ride off to his favorite fishing hole and easily take his gear with him. Perfect for exploring and seeing what hot spots can be found along the way too.
Who wants a tie for Father’s Day? Ties are b-o-r-i-n-g. The ATV.com Father’s Day gift guide has something much cooler – this sweet new Fox Racing jersey. It is made from moisture-wicking fabric with special vent panels to help keep dad cool when he’s out on the trail. It has a long tail to help keep everyone from having to see more of dad’s backside than absolutely necessary, too. Plus, it’s Fox, one of the premier brands, and about as cool looking as it gets. Make dad cool; get him a Fox jersey!
Orca Chaser 30oz. Tumbler
Your dad can fill this Orca Chaser 30 oz. tumbler up with coffee at 6am and still be drinking hot coffee at noon. Of course, if it takes him that long to drink a cup of coffee, I’m not sure what’s going on, but still, these cups will be up to the task. Made from durable stainless steel, they keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff super cold. There’s a wide range of color options, including camo. Who doesn’t like camo?
Does your dad already have a 30oz. insulated tumbler? If so, get him a handle to make it easier to carry around. And while you’re at it, make it this sweet one that has a built-in flashlight. This handle from Nebo has three light settings, with a flood light, a task light and a setting that combines both. Ever see dad trying to fumble with something at night while holding his cup in one hand and a flashlight in the other? Happens to me every camping trip it seems. I really hope I get one of these handles this year. If not, I’m buying my own.
TLD SE4 Composite Helmet
Our Father’s Day gift guide wants to keep dads everywhere safe and sound, so what better gift to say how much you care about dad than with a new helmet? I know that there are many states that say you don’t have to wear one, but seriously, you should, even in a UTV with a roll cage. Helmets save lives. Period. This TLD SE4 composite helmet is sweet looking, fits great and has the MIPS brain protection system built in. My kids never let me ride without a helmet.
I’m not sure who decided we needed to have gas cans with those stupid safety spouts on them, but seriously, I’d like to kick them in the shins. No one likes those stupid things! I switched to an LC2 Fuel Jug a while ago and now tell everyone to get one. It’s big, simple and it works. You can dump in your gas with ease, and you can always see exactly how much gas is in the tank. Get your dad one, or two. He’ll be extremely happy, I promise!
