So, you still haven’t filled out the goodie basket for dad on his big day? Fear not we have the gift list that will make dad anticipate his day like it was going to be Christmas.

ThermaCELL Heater Insoles

Let’s start from the bottom. Instead of putting dad on the hot seat for a change why not warm up to him with a pair of ThermaCELL Heater Insoles?

Whether you’re at work or play, cold feet are not fun. ThermaCELL Heated Insoles foot warmers keep your feet comfortably warm. They maintain a steady temperature inside your shoes or boots, keeping your feet around normal body temperature. That’s different from disposable chemical foot-warming pads that get hot to the touch and can make your feet sweat.

ThermaCELL Heated Insoles are completely wireless and use embedded rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The temperature is then controlled by remote control.

NcSTAR AR-15/M16 Golf Ball Launcher

Is dad a golfer? If so, it is time to get him the golf accessory that’s guaranteed not to already be in his bag. Bail on the bag of cheesy golf tees, and get dad something to launch those old golf balls. No, I am not talking about yet another driver. I am talking about the ultimate golf ball launcher, one that attaches to dad’s favorite AR-15. The NcSTAR AR-15/M16 Golf Ball Launcher is pretty cool for the money, honestly. Dad will be the envy of the driving range when he pulls out this long-range driver.

When You Think of Dad, Think FAT

It’s okay to tell dad when you think of him you think of fat as long as you are talking about Wheeler Engineering’s Firearm Accurizing Torque (F.A.T.) Wrench. Gone will be the days of dad throwing around those colorful metaphors when he strips the screw from another sight or accessory. With the F.A.T. dad will simply dial the wrench to the manufacturers spec and twist the screw until the wrench clicks.

CMMG Tactical Bacon

Hey, even if you can’t always be there for the ‘ol man you can still always be close to heart with a can of Tactical Bacon. (Technically, the stomach is close to the heart). Come on, you know you want a can too. After all, it’s Tactical Bacon in a can. Tactical Bacon is fully cooked and fully prepared before canning. It features a 10-plus year shelf life and is perfect for camping, hunting, zombie standoffs and end of the world scenarios, and Father’s Day! Did I mention it’s bacon?

Direct From the Dark Continent

Does dad have a man cave or a den that needs to get pimped out? Dump the two-decade old picture of the dogs playing poker and deck it out with some real art. We don’t have lions and tiger and bears—Oh my! But we do have African Blue Wildebeest and Zebra rugs.

One Foot in the Grave

Fortunately, Father’s Day isn’t like a birthday where dad may feel as if he is just one step closer to the grave, but that does not mean it’s too soon to start coffin shopping. I am talking something comfortable with a plush red interior—the coffin-shaped Bulldog Zombie Tactical Rifle Case. After all, his tactical rifle needs a secure place that sends the right message to the baddies.

Stash Those Stogies

Does dad enjoy a stogie now and then when mom isn’t around. Not sure? If he blames the smell on the dog when mom gets home it’s a good bet. We wouldn’t want you to support his habit, but that does not mean you can’t help him camouflage it with a Hornady Ammo Box Decorated with the African “Big Five” on top. It is the perfect accessory and stash box all in one.

King of the Throne

As the man of the house, dad is the king of the castle. Of course every king has a throne and with the Rivers Edge Wall Mount TP Holder dad will think of you every time he sits on his throne and think of the laughter you’ll hear when he does. Of course hearing laughter when he’s on the throne will be a welcome sound over the normal courtesy cough.

AR-15 Armorer’s Tool

Does dad like to tinker in the basement? Is he more of a Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor than handy and like a bunch of tools that he does not know how to use? Have no fear, Cheaper Than Dirt! has all of the gunsmithing tools dad could ever want and he’ll know how to use each one. With the AR-15 Armorer’s tool dad can install and remove receiver extensions, barrel nuts, and flash hiders.
