Year after year, moms and children are faced with the same question: “What are we going to get dad for Father’s Day?”  Finding the right gift can be stressful and the department stores filled sky-high with matching tie and sock combinations are less than helpful.

This Father’s Day, take the guesswork out of gift-giving. Whether you’re shopping for the busy bee or the guy who likes to stop and smell the roses, Pennington and Amdro have teamed up to provide the ultimate gift guide for the outdoorsy dad.

Fantastic fertilizers: If he’s into beautiful blooms or delectable edibles, help dad grow the perfect outdoor oasis with a pre-measured, easy-to-use tool that will impress any dad with a green – or even a black – thumb. The new Pennington Smart Feed Sprayer System simplifies fertilization to ensure proper nutrition and vigorous plant growth. And since it connects to any standard garden hose, dad can save time spent on outdoor chores by feeding and watering plants and vegetables at the same time.

Pride in power tools: Once the lawn is fertilized and the garden is growing, dad will want to maintain his lush landscaping with the latest outdoor equipment. Let him take a load off with a sit-down lawn mower or keep landscapes tidy with a new edger or trimmer. Pressure washers are also a great gift for the dad who likes to get rid of dirt and grime from even the most troublesome outdoor areas.

Pass on pests: Year after year, pesky weeds and insects are a major nuisance for dads. Give him the upper hand with a simple, versatile tool, such as the Amdro PowerFlex Pest & Weed System, so he can combat unwanted weeds in the yard and pests in and around the home. With this system, the battery-powered sprayer automatically combines concentrate from the cartridge with water from the tank, which means no measuring or mixing chemicals and – the hidden bonus for moms – no mess.

Frills for the grill: Although grills can be a great gift for outdoorsy dads, they can also be expensive. Grill accessories, however, are a fun, yet inexpensive, way to get dad ready to barbecue this summer. For example, stainless steel utensils, specialty food racks and even cute and comical aprons are all a necessary part of the grilling dad’s toolbox.

Relaxation remedies: Remember that the backyard isn’t just a place for countless chores – even though it may seem that way at times. Help dad catch up on some R&R with comfortable patio furniture or a sleep-inducing hammock.

A day outdoors: Last but not least, clear your calendar and schedule a day with dad in the great outdoors. One of the best gifts you can give on Father’s Day is time, so go to the park for a game of catch or go to the lake for an impromptu fishing expedition. Whatever you do, just make sure you do it with dad.
