Portable BBQ

Nothing brings a family together quite like a bbq, and what better gift to give your dad than a BBQ he can pack up and take to the beach with him! 

The Cuisinart CGG-180T Portable BBQ is a briefcase-style BBQ with foldable aluminum legs and stabilizing feet. All your dad will need to do is fold out the legs, connect the BBQ to a 1lb propane cylinder, and away he goes, grilling at his favorite place, the beach.

Cuisinart’s portable BBQ can cook either eight burgers, ten chicken breasts, or four pounds of fish all on its powerful 5,500 BTU stainless-steel burner and porcelain-enameled grate.

Hammock

Wise Owl Outfitters Camping Hammock, Navy and Blue

Sometimes during a long day at the beach, a nap is mandatory. A Wise Owl Camping Hammock can be unfolded and tied up to a tree in a matter of minutes to give your dad an ideal nap spot that is not only comfortable but also up off of the sand.

The Wise Owl hammock is 9 feet long, 4.5 feet wide, and has the ability to hold up to 400 lbs worth of weight. Wise Owl wanted their hammock to be able to withstand a range of different elements as well as everyday wear and tear, so constructed it from 210 thread-rip-resistant nylon. 

Paddle Board

Paddle boarding is an incredible activity to accompany any beach day, so why not show your dad how much you appreciate him with a stand up paddle board from GILI. The GILI Air 10’6” Inflatable Paddle Board is not only a great gift but also an excellent all-around paddle board suitable for paddlers of all abilities.

If your dad is new to the world of paddle boards, then this 10-foot 6-inch PVC inflatable board will get him out on the water, practicing a new hobby all summer long. GILI even equipped their Air paddle board with all the accessories your dad could possibly need to get out paddling in no time.

Cooler

Coleman Portable Hard Cooler

Does your dad love an alcoholic beverage, or even an ice-cold Coca-Cola? If you answered yes, then a cooler is a must and a perfect gift for father’s day. 

The Coleman Portable Hard Cooler is budget-friendly and can keep bottles, cans, or cartons of drinks cold for his entire day out in the sun. The large-grip handle makes the cooler easy to carry and the smooth surface can be wiped down of any sand, dirt, or debris. 

Water Bottle

Hydro Flask Wide Mouth Straw Lid

Everyone, and we mean everyone needs a reusable water bottle. Not only are they good for the environment, but bottles like the Hydroflask Stainless Steel Reusable Bottle can keep drinks hot or cold for long periods of time. 

Hydroflask created their dishwasher-safe water bottle from BPA-free, phthalate-free, stainless steel and coated it with a slip-free powder to prevent condensation build-up on the bottle's exterior. The flip straw of the bottle makes drinking a breeze and the fact it comes in three different sizes and 13 colors means there is definitely a variation that your father will love. 

Speaker

Waterproof bluetooth speaker

What’s a way to enhance a beach day even further? The answer: A portable speaker. 

The GILI Waterproof Speaker is a compact but effective speaker that is completely waterproof, sand proof, and dust proof. The speaker can even float in water and attach to a paddle board, or kayak. 

The dual Bluetooth pairing makes it easy to connect up with your dad’s phone, and it can also store up to 2000 songs on its internal memory.

Towel

Cotton beach towel

The next gift on our list of the best gift ideas for all the beach-loving dads out there is quite an obvious one, and that is a towel. A high-quality towel is an affordable gift that he can use post swimming, for lounging, or just simply as an everyday towel. 

This Cotton Beach Towel from Nature is Gift comes in 32 colors and is extra large in size. Nature is Gift created their towel from 100% organic cotton which is soft, highly absorbent, and fast drying.

Beach Chair

Cascade Mountain Tech Camping Chair

Wish your dad a happy father’s day with a collapsible beach chair. The Cascade Mountain Tech Compact Chair is lightweight, low profile, and made from a breathable mesh fabric. Cascade Mountain Tech added cushioned armrests and designed the frame of the chair from strong steel and aluminum to hold up to 250 lbs. 

Beach Tent

Nxone Beach Tent Sun Shade Shelter

Sometimes shade is hard to find, but a beach tent eliminates that problem entirely. A gift of a beach tent will give your dad and the entire family a space to escape the hot summer sun. 

The NXONE Beach Tent is an open concept tent created from 210D sunproof materials and an embedded coated polyester lining to provide UPF 50+ UV protection. NXONE also went for eight-millimeter rods to increase the tent’s durability and extend its overall life span. 

All three sides of the tent have mesh windows to increase airflow and NXONE added an extendable front floor mat that can zip up to create a fourth wall for ultimate privacy. 

Waterproof Backpack

Something we highly recommend for the beach is a waterproof backpack. Not only will they keep your dad’s belonging dry, but they’re also extremely easy to wipe down at the end of the day. 

The GILI Waterproof Backpack is a great waterproof backpack example and can hold up to 35L worth of possessions. The roll top closure prevents any water from entering the bag and also lets you compress the contents to make it even more compact. 

Ergonomic shoulder straps improve the backpack’s contents and the added waist strap transfers and distributes the weight of the bag from the shoulders onto the hips.
