It literally gives step by step directions on how to smoke meats. It tells you what meat is good for different wood. The quality is great. It's sturdy enough to use for more than the allotted amount of wood. It also comes with a meat thermometer. This is a great way to ease into smoking without the hiccups of over smoking and drying out meat. It tells you proper terms and times.

    EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem

    Promising review: "I'd heard of these and was always intrigued. The whole idea of a closed ecosystem is a bit fascinating to me. So knowing that my wife loves pets and plants but is not the best at caring for either of them...I bought her one of these. First off, it was larger than I'd envisioned. It came very well packaged and even though it was delivered in December and was quite cold when I got it, the 'fish' (or shrimp or whatever they are) seemed to be doing fine. My wife decided to keep it on a low shelf in her office (which has windows and light but because of the location and surrounding trees does not get direct sun) and so far it's doing great. None of the fish have died, they're always swimming around and it has yet to develop any real visible algae. And like I said... such a fascinating item!" —AgentCooper

    20. A marble pastry board that'll help your dad keep his cool, because it'll help his dough stays cool when he's baking up something brilliant.

    Get it from Amazon for $45.79 (available in two colors).

    21. A bidet, because your old man used to wipe your tush and you may wanna return the favor. So thoughtful!


    Promising review: "I am loving my Tushy! It is powerful and so easy to install! Not gonna lie, I wish my sink was on the same wall so I could do the warm water option but it is super effective and definitely wakes you up! I believe this is the best way to keep things happily clean and, coupled with my Squatty Potty, I think 2019 is going to be the year of the happy BM!" —Natalie D.

    Get it from Tushy for $89 (available in two colors).

    22. A lightweight parachute hammock to let your dad know how much you appreciate ~hanging~ out with him.

    Legit Camping hammock attached to two trees

    Promising review: "This is super comfy and light. It's very easy to put up and wide enough that I was able to have a sleeping bag, two blankets, and my pillow in it.

This works great and does so many things like grinding, detailing, sanding, and cutting!" —Stephanie Ann
