Birthday Gifts for Your Brother or Dad That Don’t SuckAdam Brinkman
When it’s your brother’s or dad’s birthday, you want to get him something special, but most importantly, you want to get him something that doesn’t suck. It sounds obvious and pretty easy, but anyone who has tried buying gifts for men knows that it’s not quite as easy as it sounds. Luckily, there are still lots of very cool gift ideas out there, as long as you’re willing to look in the right places. To help you out, we’ve compiled a short list of birthday gifts for your brother that he will actually enjoy.
If your brother or dad is a whiskey drinker, and he doesn’t already have whiskey stones, prepare to change his life. They’re great because they will keep his drink cold without diluting it the way ice does. They can find them in a range of creative designs, including skulls, baseballs, bullets, and more. Whiskey stones could be the perfect gift if your brother or dad loves booze.
Cornhole boards are an excellent gift if your brother or dad is active but not too active. Cornhole boards are fun for everyone, especially during the summer months when everyone’s outside and enjoying the weather together. If your brother or dad is a fan of tailgating, then a cornhole board is the perfect gift. You can choose from hundreds of themed cornhole boards (including NFL-themed boards), or you can design your own!
Portable Solar Cooker
A portable solar cooker is perfect for brothers or dads who enjoy camping trips and want to preserve the environment. The cooker is, you guessed it, powered by the sun. This means that there is no need for your bro or pop to haul charcoal or wood around to cook up some great food at the campsite. These solar cookers can bake, steam, roast, or saute, so the user has plenty of options. Pretty impressive, huh?
Is your brother or dad a craft beer fanatic? If so, a local brewery tour (or a tour of his favorite brewery) is the perfect gift. Chances are there is a craft brewery that he is obsessed with that offers tours of their facility. Want to know the best thing about this gift? You can go with him, and you both get to drink during the tour!
Celestron Backpack Eclipse Telescope
The Celestron Backpack Eclipse Telescope is great for anyone who is cosmos-obsessed. If your brother or dad has always been fascinated by what lies outside our own atmosphere, this is the very best gift for him. It’s small and really easy to transport from place to place, and it is pretty budget-friendly for a telescope.
His Favorite Dessert
This gift comes from the heart and absolutely does not suck. If your brother or dad lives near you, why not whip up his favorite dessert and take it over to his place? Even if you aren’t the best baker in the world, do some research, look up some recipes, watch a few youtube videos, and you will be fine. If it ends up being a complete disaster, you can just pick up the dessert from a bakery.
So, if you’re stuck on what to buy your brother for his next birthday, hopefully, these ideas gave you some inspiration. As long as you’re willing to think creatively and get him something that isn’t socks, he will appreciate your gift and the thought. That’s the most important thing, right?
