Countdown to Father’s Day – Games

By , June 17, 2010 in gift, holiday

Okay, over the course of this countdown we’ve outfitted dad’s feet, his head and even his neck. We’ve given him somewhere to sit and even given him the greatest gift of all – fire.  Let’s give him some games. Now that he has all this stuff, shouldn’t he have something fun to do, too? First, we have darts. These lovely sets come branded with Jack Daniels or XXX Tequila. Perfect for dad’s man hole be it a full bar in the basement or the corner of the garage where he keeps his tools. Trust me, dads like nothing better than to gather with their buddies with a few drinks and fling sharp objects at the wall. The entire pub industry is based on this fact. Or, maybe dad still loves a rousing game of beer pong from the old college days. Have we got the beer pong equipment for you!… Read More »

Countdown to Father’s Day – Zippo Lighters

By , June 14, 2010 in gift, holiday

Men like fire. We don’t know why and we’d rather not think about it. We like to build stacks of burning charcoal over which we can scorch great hunks of meat. We like to go into the woods, pitch tents then build campfires so we can stare at them burning for hours. We especially like to gather huge piles of wood and set them ablaze in magnificent bonfires. And there is no greater way for a man in Western civilization to start a fire than with a Zippo lighter. There’s nothing like the little ritual of opening the lid and flicking the little silver beauty to life and then, when whatever needed burning is burning, to close the lighter with a flick of the wrist and a metallic click. It’s truly one of the beautiful moments in the life of a man. As it turns out, Boozin’ Gear carries a… Read More »

Countdown to Father’s Day – Hats

By , June 11, 2010 in gift, holiday

Studies show* that 67.4% of all dad’s like wearing hats. They like wearing them when they go fishing, to the game, during dinner, at work, at church – pretty much anywhere they can get away with wearing hats, dad like wearing hats there. Survey respondents** told us things like hats just “make me feel better” and “it’s good to have a lid for my brain.” We can’t argue with that! So – and I think you know where this is going – shouldn’t you get dear old dad a hat branded with his favorite booze this year? It’s all he really wants and, for chissake, if his brain needs a lid you’d better provide him with one! *By “studies show” here at the boozin’ blog, of course we mean that the author just pulled a made-up number out of his ass. **Again, fake facts.fathers day gifts hats

Not all dads are created equal. Some are the come home from the office and collapse on the coach at night types. Others are the work hard, play hard types that plan hiking and camping trips for weekends. But one thing that all dad have in common is that they like to loose the shoes. They spend all day with their feet trapped in stodgy leather office shoes or heavy work boots and the first thing they want to do with they get home is take the damn things off. So, the perfect father’s day gift is a pair of sandals branded with Dad’s favorite drink. Check out our huge selection. My favorites are these groovy cloth strap Corona sandals.fathers day sandals
