On Father's Day, take a moment from the daily family chaos to honor and celebrate your dad, your kids' dad, or really any father figure in your life. Gifts are a great way to show your appreciation for all that they do. If you want to give them something memorable, you first need to determine what might mean something to him. If he's a baseball guy, there are so many baseball gifts for Dad on Father's Day, and one is sure to be a hit (yes, that pun was intended).
Baseball is pretty pervasive in our society so the odds are good that the dad you are shopping for will appreciate something baseball-related. It's easy to find something emblazoned with the logo of their favorite Major League Baseball (MLB) team at a local sporting goods store or even online, but here you'll find some more creative suggestions.
And in addition to your gift, make sure you focus on making baseball-related memories, too. Dig out your partner's old baseball glove or get him a new one and head to the park to play a little family ball. Get some friends or your extended family together and have a pickup game. Even littlest ones can hit a ball off a tee or take a swing at a Wiffle ball with an oversized plastic bat. Making memories is just as important on Father's Day as the gift you give. Of course, they surely would appreciate a nicely wrapped, baseball-themed present they can use for years to come, too.
Yes, a tie may seem a little trite, but these ties are not your typical dad-ties. To keep with the baseball theme, choose one that showcases how to hold the ball for different pitches or one that has demolished ballparks on it to give them all those nostalgic feels.
If your guy is a fan of watching the sport IRL, look to see if there are any minor league ballparks near you. These tickets are a fraction of the cost of MLB games and very family-friendly. Many offer special promotions (get free hot dogs with your tickets), the food is reasonably priced, and if you're lucky, you may even be chosen for one of the silly contests they often have between innings.

Baseball and beer totally go together, so get your baseball fan an opener that makes it really easy for him to enjoy his favorite brew. It's also a magnet, so you can stick in on the fridge or any metal surface, so that it's always handy when he wants to crack a cold one during the game.
