The Best Father's Day Gifts for Outdoorsy Dads
Even though dads tend to be less picky than moms, we always have a tougher time with Father's Day shopping.
Of course, the process gets a whole lot simpler when your father has specific hobbies and interests—particularly if he's a fan of the great outdoors. While he probably already has all the specific gear he needs to perfectly persue his favorite activities, there are a few goodies he hasn't though of, and that's why the following items make such great gifts.
Vacation Classic Spray SPF 50: $19
Dads (and everyone, really) should be wearing an SPF every day, but it's especially critical when they're under the beating sun all day. If your father figures are anything like ours, they really can't be bothered with the tedious process of lathering up, which is why an effortless sunscreen spray like Vacation's Classic Spray SPF 50 is just right for them. The sprayer is designed for continous use—even upside-down and sideways—goes on transparent and features the brand's signature tropically beachy scent, so he's sure to love it.
Bug Bite Thing Suction Tool: $9.99
Being outside inevitably results in bug bites, so help him stop itchiness in its tracks with Bug Bite Thing's Suction Tool. It works like a charm to extract any saliva or venom from moquito bites, stings and more, which in turn prevents itching, pain and swelling, and since it's a simple suction tool, it uses no chemicals and is endlessly reusable.

Coalatree Trailhead Pants: $99
Coalatree's Trailhead Pants truly are the ultimate outdoor pant, looking stylish enough for everyday wear while being rugged, waterproof and breathable enough for any and all kinds of adventures. They feature four-way stretch, so they don't hinder movement whatsover, and are also tear-resistant and antimicrobial to prevent stink. Our favorite thing, though, might be the way they pack down into the front pocket, making them eay to pack and usable as a little pillow.

Big Blanket Co. Big Beachy Blanket: $159
For the dad who prefers to share his time outdoors with the family, there's the Big Beachy Blanket from Big Blanket Co. It's seven times bigger than your average beach towel (100 square feet in total) while being way less bulky. The 60% cotton and 40% bamboo material makes it lightweight and easy to carry around, but the fact it repels sand is what makes it truly special.
