Last minute gift ideas for your ATV-loving dad
It happens every year. My wife and kids ask me what I want for Father’s Day gifts, and as quickly as I tell them, the information gets filed away with homework, old recipes, ATM card PINs and other bits of stuff that has long been forgotten. They then rush out to find a last-minute gift idea that shows that they still care, even though the gift was bought just in the nick of time. I have been thinking about this for some time and have decided that this year was going to be different. I wrote out a list of ideas for last minute Father’s Day gifts that I, or any other dad, would love to have. I’m even being nice enough to share it so other dads out there can get some pretty sweet stuff.

1. Editor's Choice: Yeti Rambler 30 oz. Tumbler
Dad deserves a drink. And he deserves to have that drink stay hot or cold for a long time. I heard a story the other day about a truck that caught fire and when they got the fire out, the truck was a total loss, but sitting in the cupholder was one of these Yeti Ramblers with ice still in the drink.
2. Best Power Tool: Husqvarna 445 Chain Saw
Great for clearing trails, cutting firewood, or intimidating your daughter’s dates, the Husqvarna 445 is on every dad’s wish list. These are some of the best saws out there, so if your dad has been hinting at a saw, it was probably this one.
3. Best Novelty: Keychains
If you’re not going to hand dad the keys to a new ATV, the least you can do is hand him a new ATV keychain, right? I’ve got to admit, this is pretty cool.
4. Best Gear Bag: Ogio 9800
If dad’s idea of a good time is going riding, as it should be, then he’s going to need a way to keep all his gear together. What better way than what the pros use? Ogio makes the best gear bags, and Dad can even use it for travel. Sounds good.
5. Best Apparel: Hats
Ties are lame, but hats are cool. Dads can appreciate a cool hat, and getting one that supports his favorite brand of ATV, UTV, dirt bike or riding gear will make it all the better. You can never go wrong with a hat.
6. Fuel Transportation: Pit Posse White 5 Gal Fuel Jug w/ Hose
Okay, it may seem silly to get dad a gas can for a gift, but trust me – he’ll love it. These jugs will dump five gallons of gas into the ATV or UTV super fast and will actually do so without making a huge mess. If dad has a machine, he needs the right kind of gas can.
7. Best Mechanic Accessory: Mechanix Gloves
Whether dad is tinkering in the garage on the UTV, spinning wrenches on the kid’s dirt bike, or working on a project in the backyard with the new chainsaw you bought him, he’s going to appreciate a good pair of gloves. For working on stuff, there’s none better than Mechanix Wear Gloves. They fit great, protect the hands and are very versatile. I love ‘em and always hope to unwrap a new pair.
