Top-ranked gifts for Dad:
If dad is a Star Wars fan, surprise him with the latest motion picture to add to his cinema collection. Star Wars: The Forces Awakens is the seventh installment in the main Star Wars film series and takes place thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire. In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), scrappy desert dweller Rey (Daisy Ridley) and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of a vanished Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains, including Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire.
For the bookish dad who loves thrillers, the newest novel from Stephen King is the perfect Father’s Day gift! “End of Watch” is the spectacular finale to the New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with "Mr. Mercedes" and "Finders Keepers.” In “End of Watch,” the diabolical Mercedes Killer drives his enemies to suicide, and if Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney don’t figure out a way to stop him, they’ll be victims themselves.
If dad is hungry for BBQ recipes hot off the grill, fire up his passion with this step-by-step guide by America’s master griller, Steven Raichlen. “Project Smoke,” which details top tips and techniques to cold-smoking, hot-smoking and smoke-roasting, features a collection of 100 innovative recipes for smoking every kind of food – from starters to desserts. With an in-depth description of the various smokers; essential brines, rubs, marinades and barbecue sauces; and a complete guide to fuel and how each type of wood subtly seasons a dish, dad will be celebrating the season of sizzle like a pro!
For the dad who enjoys hitting the links, a book authored by professional golfer Nathaniel Crosby is a hole in one. Written as a love letter to Crosby’s father, “18 Holes with Bing,” shares memories of Bing Crosby on the golf course and details the lessons he taught about the game and about life.
For dads with a hoppy hobby, this Brooklyn Brew Shop beer making kit is the perfect addition to his ale arsenal. With a 1 gallon glass fermenter, airlock, tubing, thermometer, tubing clamp, packet of sanitizer, stopper and blowoff attachment, dad will have everything he needs to brew up a 12-pack of well-balanced, citrusy IPA. Cheers!
