I would spend the very Happy Father’s Day to my dad with his children and grandchildren at our family ranch. Working on tractors or driving the John Deere Gator around checking fields, reservoirs and fences. Then visit here for more information Column Plan Ahead The Sheridan Gift Guide To Fathers Day.
Alternatively, my Husband’s idea of a perfect day would be very different from mine. He would love to spend the day dirt biking and fly fishing with his kids. This is in contrast to how his father spent many of his days, simply watching baseball.
My brother always has a great time mountain biking, climbing or hiking with the family to celebrate Father’s Day. I wanted to give you a head start on your Father’s Day preparations this year. So here’s a local shopping guide full of ideas for the perfect present. If you’re like me and my siblings, you probably don’t start thinking about what to get dad until a few days beforehand. Get ahead of the game this year and make this Father’s Day one he won’t forget!
Casey from Rocky Mountain Discount Sports knows her stuff when it comes to gifts for dad. She says that knives and multi-tools are always good choices, and I can attest to that from my own experience. My dad has owned a lot of knives over the years, and he’s always finding new reasons to buy more. If you’re on the hunt for a Father’s Day gift, Casey says the store will be having a sale on Traeger grills.
If your dad is the active and adventurous type. Roger from The Sport Stop recommends picking up a longboard from their fresh stock. He admits that this might not be the best choice for all dads out there, but suggests a fun “Life is Good” t-shirt or a personalized Yeti mug or tumbler as an alternative.
Alex from Sportsman’s Warehouse says that water sports and camping are popular right now. He invites you to come inside and see the selection of tents, sleeping bags, outdoor games, canoes, kayaks, and fishing gear.
A favorite of mine is something. I know all three of these shops carry but no one mentioned – a lightweight hammock. Tucked away in a pocket the size of a Nalgene water bottle and easy to maneuver. These four-poster beds are hard to beat.
If your father loves fly fishing or cycling, the Bighorns’ Fly Shop or the Sheridan Bicycle Company are great places to visit. The staff at both shops are friendly and knowledgeable. And they’ll be able to help you choose the perfect gift for your dad. If you’re still not sure what to get him. A gift certificate is always a good option – that way, he can pick out his own bow ties or tune up his bike for the summer.
Your favorite activities may vary. But what my dad, husband and brother all have in common is that they love spending time outdoors with their family. Mid-June is a great time of year to get out and enjoy the weather while spending time with the people you love. The best gift you can give your dad this year is time with you.
We are fortunate to live in a community. That makes it easy to get outdoors and enjoy some recreation with your dad on Father’s Day. There are plenty of trails to hike or bike, and you can even rent a boat and go fishing or paddling at Kleenburn Recreation Area. Or if you’re feeling competitive, play a round of disc golf or catch a ball game at Thorne-Rider Stadium. Either way, you’re sure to have a great time!
