The Best Father’s Day Gifts Imaginable

Johnathon Eltrevoog, WBGL Morning Show Host

I just found out yesterday that Father’s Day is in just a few days. Lindsey asked me to write a Father’s Day gift guide, but I can’t because I’m not that fancy. The best thing I could thing of doing is giving you my list of…


1. Give Dad the gift of touring the park or stadium that’s home to his favorite sports team. Most major sports teams let you buy a tour ticket on an off day for a guided tour of the park or stadium. Around here, you can do it at Wrigley Field, Busch Stadium, Soldier Field, and more. Tickets start at around just $15.

2. A record player with five records from artists you know he’d like to listen to. My wife recently was grocery shopping at Aldi and came home with a Bluetooth record Player for me that was $50, and it’s just great. And maybe throw in a few used records from a record store or even a garage sale of the style of music he likes.

3. A 45-second Omelete Maker which costs $25.00.

4. Instead of just getting him one Father’s Day card and having each member of your family sign it, have each member of the family give him a card and (assuming they are able) their assignment is to write 100 words or more sharing about their favorite memory that involves Dad. He may hold onto these cards forever.

5. A large amount of sausage. I have been saying this for years and Lindsey always laughs at me. It doesn’t have to be the typical Hickory Farms Summer Sausage, it can be Bratwurst, Chorizo, Italian Sausage, or even a Charcuterie assortment if you want to get fancy. For certain dads like myself, a couple of packages of really nice long hot dogs would even do the trick. (Nathan’s Famous Skinless Beef Franks just won a national taste test).

This list is starting to get a little silly, so I think I’ll end here. Happy Father’s Day!
