Dads are worth celebrating. At least Richard Nixon thought so when he made Father's Day a national holiday in 1972. And when it comes to Father's Day, folks across the globe have all sorts of traditions. In Thailand, dads get Canna Lilies, and apparently in Germany, men load up wagons of beer and liqour and pull them into the woods. Here in the U.S. it varies - Dad might recieve a card, the traditional necktie, or a new tool. Or if you've accepted Jimmy Kimmel's Father's Day challenge, a big surprise.
But the biggest surprise of all for your pops might be doing something a little different this year. Something that he can enjoy for days, weeks, months to come. Something he can brag to his buddies about. You guessed it - Jerky.
Apparently only the cool kids are doing it. If you're crafty in the kitchen you can follow in the footsteps of the likes of Gronk and Richard Sherman. They're giving their dads jerky neckties. What's even better than a necktie? An ammo can filled with his favorite snack that he can display proudly in his office, or possibly some alcohol jerky to enjoy with his friends. We've got a whole page of our store dedicated to the perfect Father's Day gift, and you can't go wrong with any of our options.
Here's hoping all the dads out there feel really special this year. If you think your kids need a hint on what to get you, feel free to email them this blog post. You won't regret it.
