Father's Day is on Sunday, June 19th. Don't forget about it. It's time do some shopping to make sure you get dad a special gift.

I'm a dad; I am blessed with two great sons. Being a dad is the best job, experience or roll that I could ever imagine. For the longest time I didn't think I would have kids. It's the greatest gift that has ever been given to me and it changed my life.

When I was younger, I would get my dad something cheap or make him something at school. I'm excited for Father's Day because I get to spend that time with my kids. I am curious to see if they make me something this year. No gifts are necessary, but I would prefer something homemade. I think it's awesome that they took some time to create something cool versus playing Fortnite all day.

I have received some pretty cool gifts in the past that weren't homemade. A flat top for the backyard was a nice gift along with numerous outdoor gadgets over the years. They were all practical gifts, and that made them special too.

This year all I want to do is to go to a baseball game, eat some ball park food and spend time with the ones that give me the title "dad" or "father." As we celebrate the dads in our lives, let's remember to spend that time with those that admire us more than any other male in their life.

UKeg Go Carbonated Growler - This is a great gift for dads who like their brews or homebrews. Amazon has it for less than $100.

Magnetic Tool Wristband - I would love one of these. Stay organized and have your tools accessible.

Wireless Thermometer - How about a wireless thermometer for dad? These gadgets are pretty high tech.

Baseball Stadium Blueprints - This would be a great gift for that baseball dad. They come in team colors.

Lansing Lugnuts Tickets - Esquire didn't suggest this one, I did.

Detroit Tigers Tickets - I added this to the list, go catch a game with the family.


Quarterly Craft Jerky Subscription - Yum. What dad doesn't like beef jerky?

Aluminum Wallet With Money Clip - I got tired of carrying my wallet in my back pocket. I switched to one of these and it's a game changer.

Smokeless Wood and Charcoal Burning Firepit - I personally like the smoke of a campfire. Some dads might not.

Drone - Drones are cool and it's a great way to build some memories with dad as he learns how to fly it.

I sincerely hope that all dads have an amazing Father's Day. Let's enjoy together with our kids and create some memories. To me, that's what Father's Day is all about.
