Let’s first take a moment to reminisce on just how great dad’s are. Dad’s were the one’s holding us up the first time our training wheels came off our Barbie bicycles. They made an effort to attend every single sporting event…even if we never made it off the bench. Dad’s surprised us with a clean car some sunny Saturday mornings. Most importantly, our dad’s dedicated their lives as living, breathing examples of everything we hope to be when we grow up. With such special men in our lives, it’s no wonder they are so hard to shop for. Dad’s deserve it all this Father’s Day. Whether you want to spoil your husband for everything he does or invest in a sentimental gesture for your own father, here are Scoop’s picks for what to give dad on June 18.

Blackhawk Hardware

Nothing puts a smile on dad’s face quite like hardware, grilling, tools, birdhouses and every-possible-thing in between. Blackhawk’s unique and expansive assortment will have you wandering the aisles of their Park Road Shopping Center location for hours, eating popcorn and buying things for yourself too. Blackhawk customer service is second to none. If you are struggling on what to pick, let their experts posted up at the end of the aisles help.

Big Green Egg – grill and smoker ($399.00 & Up)

Spikeball – if volleyball and four square had a baby ($60.00)

Yeti Hooper Flip Cooler – $279.99

Topgolf is open just in time for Father’s Day! Spoil him with a round at Charlotte’s newest 65.000 square foot destination for ultimate golf, games, food and fun. Topgolf has options of both an e-gift certificate and mailed gift cards with three convenient shipping methods. If dad wants quality family time this Father’s Day, look no further. If dad is planning on spending a lot of time at the new facility, a Topgolf membership would be a golden gift.

Kinetic Heights

It only makes sense that the best gift for dads was created by dads. Back in 2013, a couple of friendly guys got together to create Kinetic Heights, a place that allows you to “play bigger,  reach higher and live bolder.” The playspace offers both high and low courses for both individuals, families and teams to climb, roll, and make their way through life-size obstacles. Kinetic Heights is currently running a special of 42 days for $42 so you can spoil dad without breaking the bank.
