Dads are notorious tinkerers. They just aren’t content unless they are fiddling with, figuring out, measuring or jury-rigging some contraption, mechanism or widget.
Now, if you combine that inclination with a great hobby like making or enjoying wine, you have the ingredients for some fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas.
Let’s see. Buckets, hydrometers, tubing, spigots, siphons, grommets – and wine! Sounds like a Dad’s dream come true. (He may even let go of the remote for this one.)
Home winemaking is a fun and relaxing pastime with a big payoff. Typical kits are available with the basics necessities for making your own wine including fermenting containers, instruments for monitoring your wine, tubing and siphons for transferring and bottling, handheld corkers and, of course, instructions. There also are a wide range of wine ingredient kits to choose from to satisfy your Dad’s unique personality and tastes. True to form, Dad will want to proudly show off his creation and then sit back and enjoy it.
Of course enjoying wine comes with a whole other set of gift-worthy gadgetry.
(Note the “dad connection” inherent in each.)
Dads love to be busy and then love to sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Wine appreciation gifts offer the best of both worlds.
Happy Father’s Day.
