Give The Gift of Beer 3 of 8For microbrewery lovers, there's nothing better than a subscription to a Beer of the Month club. Check out your local brewery for ideas and help finding the type for dad. Subscriptions usually require at least a 6 month commitment (but for some reason we don't think Dad will get tired of checking the mail every month!).

Adopt An Olive Tree 5 of 8This is what I got my dad last year and he loves it. Twice a year, the grove sends Dad 3-4 tins of cold press extra virgin olive oil from each tree. He's got plenty of olive oil to last all year and gets a kick out of going online to check out the Italian orchard where 'his' tree grows. He loves counting how many olives are on the tree!

How To Make Your Own Dry Rub 6 of 8Make dad a big jar of great dry rub for all his grilling desires.

If you've got paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, brown sugar and celery salt, then you are good to go!

Homemade BBQ Sauce 7 of 8While you're making the dry rub, you might as well make some BBQ sauce to go with it. Making homemade BBQ is very simple, and you're in control of the ingredients, so it's healthier too. You won't find any high fructose corn syrup in your homemade recipe. This molasses sauce is amazing with chicken!
