#DestinationDad Makes Father's Day Easy

I never get people who say "Ugh, Father's Day, what do I get my dad?" Sorry, but dads are easy compared to moms. We like so many things that don't require special sizing, we don't require it to fit a certain color scheme, ad we don't care if it doesn't "go" with the things we already have.  Dads are easy and Sears makes it even easier with their #DestinationDad campaign for Father's Day.


I walked into Sears today looking at all the #DestinationDad gift ideas and I walked out with a bag of stuff! Of course, I brought my style consultant with me who actually didn't want to shop anymore and insisted that she carry around a mini screwdriver that she picked out from the tool section.  That is when I spotted the Craftsman 263 PC Mechanics Tool Set. If there is one thing every dad should have is a tool set that is going to fit every nut and bolt out there even when he has to build those darn Swedish furniture sets.

We walked on and like a mosquito drawn to a summertime bug zapper, I made a beeline for the Holy Grail of grills. That's when I fell in love with the Kenmore 4 Burner Gas Grill with Folding Side Table. This bad boy has a table the folds out from the base of the grill, providing enough room for that side of beef you want to serve up to your family.

Everytime my daughter and I go to a store, she runs through the clothes section and exclaims "Oh! This is soooo cute! Can we buy this?" and starts pulling things off the rack.  This outing was no exception only I told her that we were looking for clothes for Daddy this time. She picked out this Outdoor Life Men's Short-Sleeve Twill Shirt which is perfect for our summertime fishing trips in the Adirondacks. As a tall man, I have had the misfortune of having trouble finding my size in stores so I was impressed that Sears had Tall Men sizes that actually fit me!

Sears wants you to honor dad this Father’s Day through “Snap Your ‘Stache” – a nationwide search for the greatest moustache. Now through June 15th, moms and kids can take a photo of dad’s moustache – or he can snap a moustache selfie – and share it at for a chance to win the ultimate Father’s Day gift – a trip to the Craftsman MAKEcation where he’ll meet a celebrity and learn to make whiskey, roll cigars, grill steaks, and amass survival skills.  Runner up prizes include other great gifts including a Craftsman Quiet Lawnmower Craftsman portable gas grill and Craftsman MACH Series tools.

If you struggle from the inability to properly grow a lip squirrel, don't despair. You can still enter the contest; get creative and draw one on, use a sticker or hold something to create your best ‘stache. Plus, everyone who enters will receive $5 in Shop Your Way points to use on the perfect Father’s Day gift. Plus, Shop Your Way members can vote for their favorite moustache submission, which will enter them into a sweepstakes for 250,000 in points (a value of $250).

Don't delay and head to Sears, the destination for great gifts for Father’s Day, including popular brands of grills, tools, fitness equipment, consumer electronics and apparel that can be purchased in-store, online or from a phone.  The dad in your life will thank you!
