With the pandemic causing the world to go under quarantine, it makes gift giving a little more challenging. You can’t just easily rush out to the nearest store and grab something, because not everything has opened up yet. So, finding great Father’s Day gift ideas during the quarantine can be a task.
Although some areas are opening up now and most will be opening up soon, many people will still need to continue to spend more time at home than usual so go for a gift that dad can enjoy at home or in a socially distant atmosphere. Every dad is different, so we broke the list into categories so you can find just the right gift.

Gifts for Dads Who BBQ
There is nothing like cooking meat over a BBQ to make you feel like a man. Barbecuing has been mans’ favorite household chore since it was invented. Here are some Father’s Day gift ideas for the manly man who loves to BBQ. The best part of these gifts is that you get to enjoy what he makes!
What better way to show you are the man of the house than by branding the meat with your initials or name. Or throw a Superbowl party and brand the name of your favorite team onto the meat so that the fans of the other team get riled up.

This caramelizing iron isn’t like anything you have ever seen. You heat it up over the grill or campfire and quickly stick it into your drink and it caramelizes it. Because it does it so fast, it won’t change the temperature of your beverage. It is great for hot chocolate, apple juice, beer, and more. It changes the texture to a thick, caramel-like substance and it adds a deeper flavor.
Each month, you will receive one sauce or marinade, one spice or rub, a delicious snack, premium wood chips sample, and 1-3 custom recipes. Dad will be excited to try out the new flavors! You can buy one month or a subscription, but I love subscriptions because it’s like Christmas every month.
