Perfect Presents for Dad

(Family Features) Shopping for some dads is easy - neckties, gift cards or golf balls are sure to bring a smile to his face. Others want something a lot more creative and unexpected. This year, get your favorite father a gift that creates special memories. Take him fishing, host a family barbecue featuring his favorite grilled fare or let him rock out with his favorite guitarist. No matter what type of dad you have, here are a few great gift ideas sure to make this Father's Day one to remember.

Catch Some Memories with Dad

A rod and reel, some bait, a cooler of snacks and sandwiches, fishing licenses and his favorite fishing buddy; all these together make for a perfect Father's Day gift. Spoil dad with a day on the open water with no distractions. He'll be glad you opted for tackle instead of the tie. For more details on how to purchase fishing licenses, supplies you will need, where the fish are biting, and how to hook 'em, visit

Wine, Wisdom and Rock Experience

Wow dad with a once-in-a-lifetime gift: The "Wine, Wisdom and Rock Experience" at the Louis M. Martini Winery, presented by Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, Aug. 16 to 18. This unbelievable weekend will blend classic rock with classic cabernet in one of Napa Valley's most historic wineries. Dad will taste world class cabernet with Michael Martini, third-generation master winemaker, and jam with classic rock guitarist Joe Satriani and other rock legends. For more information, visit or

Gifts that Sizzle

For the man who has everything, give dad the gift that brings the whole family together. With the grilled goodness of Omaha Steaks' Favorite Gift package, he'll have everything he needs for an incredible feast - from extra tender Filet Mignons to bold, beefy Top Sirloins and savory sides.

Grill Up Some Good Times

An icy beverage, the sun beating down and the smoky smell of a sizzling cut of meat - these are a few of dad's favorite things. If dad is a novice to the grill, open up a new culinary world to him this Father's Day with the gift of a new grill. Is he already a seasoned master of the flame? Think about upgrading his old rig for one that's shiny and new. It's a gift dad will enjoy using all year long.
