Outdoor Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dad

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18. Are you thinking of getting Dad another necktie or bottle of cologne? If Dad loves spending time outside–or he loves showing off his patio pavers to family or friends–then why not get him some outdoor gifts he’ll love to use?

And not just on Father’s Day, but throughout the summer as well.

Instead of venturing out to the mall, you should head on down to your local landscape supplier and get Dad a gift that he’ll truly love.

Hemlock Mulch

Gift Idea #1: Mulch and topsoil

Wait, what? Much and topsoil? As a Father’s Day gift?


Think about it. If Dad is always working in the garden – or planting new items – then he probably has a supply of topsoil at his disposal.

And, chances are, that supply is getting low – which means he’ll have to replenish it.

By giving him a supply of topsoil for Father’s Day, he’ll have it ready to go in his garage or tool shed. No need to order it, because it’s already there.

It’s the perfect gift idea for the practical Dad.

Then, he can keep his fresh topsoil in place – or bring some colour to a garden bed or tree bed – by laying down fresh mulch. Again, another practical gift you can give Dad for Father’s Day this year.

A high-pressure washer will help Dad keep his interlock clean

Gift Idea #2: High-pressure washer

Dad loves his patio or driveway that he built from interlocking paver stones.

And Dad hates it when they get dirty from dust and grime. He just hates it.

Give him a high-pressure washer this year to help him keep his interlock bright, clean and fresh.

With a high-pressure washer, it will be super easy for Dad to clean his interlock paving stones. And he won’t have to spend hours on end doing it.

If you’re worried about storage, don’t be. Modern high-pressure washers are compact in size. And some of them even fold for easy storage in Dad’s garage or tool shed.

Gift Idea #3: Hammock

Is Dad always dozing off outside in a cramped or tiny lawn chair?

Well, the next time Dad falls asleep in the backyard, make sure he does it in a nice, comfy hammock.

Hammocks are available in two main styles:

  • Tie hammocks: These are hammocks which can be tied between two trees
  • Post hammocks: These hammocks come with posts which need to be installed into the ground

Whether he’s sleeping, reading a book, listening to the game or spending time with the grandkids, your Dad will love his hammock.

Get Dad new garden tools if his old ones need replacing

Gift Idea #4: New garden tools

Is your Dad always working with his:

  • Shears
  • Pruners
  • Spades
  • Digging fork
  • Wheelbarrow

And are they old and worn out? Could they use replacing?

You know that Dad won’t spend money on himself and purchase brand new lawn tools. That’s just the way he is.

So you should do it for him this year. He’ll really appreciate it – especially when he sees how fast he can get yard work done.
