Scrumptious desserts, succulent meats, grilling tools and wine making kits: These are the Father’s Day gifts the foodie dad wants. If you’re still looking for the perfect gourmet gift for Dad, here is a tasty array of foods, cooking gadgets and accessories for his favorite beverages, ranging from $5 to $250.
If you can't be with your dad to give him your own homemade sweet treats, have an extra-special sweet sent to his door. Amid the many scrumptious made-from-scratch desserts, Sweet Sally's offers Dad a BBQ Bucket of Sweets. Choose from bucket #1 (24 Chocolate Chip Cookies and 28 Brownie Bites,) or bucket #2 (14 Raspberry Squares, 14 pieces of Blueberry Buckle and 6 Sugar Star Cookies). Each bucket even comes with a red-checked tablecloth.
$5 for 12-ounce bottle
If you're looking for fun condiments to stock your own gourmet Father's Day gift basket, Henry's Grandma's Catsup is a mouthwatering must-have. Made from a unique and treasured family recipe, this ketchup is a sweet and savory balance of flavors that bolsters the satisfaction of burgers, hot dogs and fries. Dad can even use it as a base for soups and his own homemade sauces.
For the Dad who loves entertaining and prides himself as the neighborhood mixologist, the Mezzetta gourmet gift basket features a fine selection of specialty olives and garnishes that are perfect additions to Martinis, Bloody Marys and other cocktails. Each stunning basket is filled with Mezzetta Martini Olives Marinated in Vermouth, Jalapeño Stuffed Olives, Garlic Stuffed Olives, Cocktail Onions and Maraschino Cherries. In addition, the basket includes a 50-card deck of martini recipes, colorful party picks and a cocktail shaker.
$52 for 4-pound brisket and bonus jar of special barbecue sauce
A mouthwatering and much appreciated gift, this succulent beef brisket will make Dad the most popular cookout king on the block. The certified angus beef brisket from S. Wallace Edwards & Sons is carefully seasoned and barbecued for more than six hours on hickory logs to give it an authentic smoked flavor, then frozen for order. When it arrives on your dad's doorstep, all he will have to do is thaw it and then grill it for 15 minutes to heat through. Only Dad (and you) will know that he didn't actually slave over the smoker all day.
