Papa, can you hear me? Papa, can you help me find the perfect gift for you? Look no further than the latest NNN gifting guide for divine intervention on what to get that most-impossible-to-shop-for character from the story of you.
Membership to the Garden & Gun Club – A magazine, a way of life. Three different membership levels offer you the chance to introduce your pops to the social opportunities available through this sophisticated publication that covers everything from handcrafted instruments to fly fishing to boozing in Bermuda. ($35 – $500)
Dinner by Daniel Boulud – Forget the steakhouse gift certificate. Send him a gift set he’ll never forget that contains a 3.5 lb Five Rib Pork Rack, Surry-ano Ham from Virginia and a couple of fancy domestic cheeses. Honor the man who knows how to sear & grill with the best of them. Recipes included. From our friends at Heritage Foods USA. ($175; Dinner by Mario Batali available for $190)
Baseball – While it might be tricky to send him the entire sport, Ken Burns’ epic documentary will please the sports aficionado & documentary junkie with the swing of the first bat. (Burns documentary available through PBS on DVD and Blu-Ray, $19.99 – $138)
Whiskey – The man needs a new drink, and he’s not too old to fall in love with whiskey again…Japanese whiskey. Send him a bottle of Suntory’s finest, Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky. The 12 year is just fine, but if you really love him, pony up the extra cash for the sublime 18 year. (Starting at $52 from drinkupny.com)
iPhone/iPad Accessory – The coolest. This acoustic iPhone speaker dock with a vintage phonograph horn is a thing of beauty and wonder. Watch and listen as it brings together the music from his generation with the technology from yours. Cue conversation and story time. (Available for Android and iPad; vintage, custom, and reproduction models available from ReAcoustic on Etsy.com, starting at $107)
