Since not every Dad is an avid golfer or griller, a lot of ties tend to get purchased for Father’s Day. And Dad, being the great Dad he is, expresses his appreciation one more piece of neckwear to add to his collection.
But this year, rather than prepping him for the boardroom or the office, give Dad something that suits his interests away from work—and something he can look forward to all year long. Use this little guide to determine what kind of Dad he is and what magazine subscription would make the best gift!
1. The Sports Dad: Whether it’s football, basketball, baseball, hockey or tennis, he’s always watching the “big game.” Indulge Dad’s sports obsession with a Sports Illustrated subscription, a customer favorite packed with the latest on all his favorite sports and entertaining features.
2. The Outdoorsy Dad: If he prefers the boat or the woods to his favorite recliner or stadium seat, Dad may enjoy Field & Stream magazine. It’s a hit with customers, as it covers everything from big game, deer and bird hunting to saltwater, freshwater and fly fishing.
3. The Intellectual Dad: Maybe Dad is something of a news junkie, but he also likes to be well-read on the latest topics. Thanks to its well-written and in-depth pieces on politics, the economy, social issues and more, a subscription to The Atlantic magazine would be ideal.
4. The Gearhead Dad: Whether he’s restoring an old classic or appreciates cars of a bygone era, Dad might like Hot Rod—another magazine that’s gets high marks customers. Or if he prefers his freedom on two wheels, he’ll enjoy Motorcyclist, which covers all aspects of street bikes.
5. The Healthy Dad: Maybe Dad likes to work (out) hard and play hard. If so, Men’s Health is the answer. Customers praise it for its well-rounded content on fitness routines and nutrition, along with travel and entertainment recommendations for much-needed downtime.
