Father’s Day is just around the corner — this Sunday to be exact. Do you have a gift for your favorite guy yet? Personally, I find it hard to get a gift for my dad. He’s the tech type and we all know how expensive that can get. This year, I’ve decided to give the gift of food because that’s what guys — even the picky ones — really want, right?

Our slew of great, easy Father’s Day recipes and cocktails will surely please Dad. You can start his day off right with a Tex-Mex style breakfast in bed, or add his favorite brew to cheese dip or even a cupcake! And after he’s full and happy, he can wind his day down with a nice, cold cocktail.

If you’d like to go the extra mile, make him the ultimate grilling accessory — a DIY barbecue holster to hold his grilling essentials. What dad wouldn’t love that?

And for the sophisticated dad, you can make him a fancy yet easy-to-make catch-all tray using an old frame and a scrap piece of leather.

If you have young ones in your home, let them add their personal touch by writing and drawing on a grill platter — an easy, practical and thoughtful gift Dad can use for years.
