FRIDAYFathers Day is June 20th

Happy Friday and thanks for visiting Heartland Today for another special TGIF edition!

This Friday’s blog post is all about DAD.  With Father’s day exactly one month away (June 20th) we have compiled some of this years best gift ideas, with plenty of time left to purchase or plan ahead!!

When we think Father’s Day the first thing that comes to mind is Grill’n.  What dad wouldn’t love a new Weber, Jenn-Air, or Charbroil grill?  Do your research online, or stop into a local home improvement store to find the perfect grill for your outdoor chef.

Does your Dad golf like Arnold Palmer, or just look like him? Give him a day of golf at one of the top golf courses in the area.  Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio offer some of the best golf courses for Dad’s at any playing level.  A quick Google Maps search will show hundreds of courses in the Tri-State area.  If you are still not sure which golf course is the ideal, ask the old man his favorite course, chances are he doesn’t realize Father’s day is so soon.

IPods, Plasmas, and Pocket Gadgets are the perfect gift for the tech-savvy father.  Get your father an MP3 player and download all of his favorite music, or hook him up with a new entertainment system!!  If your dad is always getting lost on family trips, a GPS makes the perfect gift for the father that is always taking a “detour”.

Spend a Day with Dad!!  Plan a weekend getaway or a simple day trip.  Take Dad to the museum, a state park, or some place that is special to him like his hometown or the college he went to.  And if you get him that GPS, chances are he won’t get lost (as easy).   

No matter what you decide to give your Dad this Father’s Day we are sure he will love it, but please refrain from gifting light up ties, and World’s Best Dad socks, nobody wants to see those!!!
