It’s less than two weeks until Father’s Day, and you’re still trying to figure out what to get your dad? He won’t be mad … just disappointed. 

If you need some help finding something Dad will actually use and enjoy, we’ve compiled a list of new products from Black Rifle Coffee Company and other veteran-owned companies that are sure to be a hit with your family patriarch. So forget about the new grill-master tongs you were eyeing — we have apparel, coffee, and gear suggestions to ensure you stay his favorite child. 

If your dad is a coffeehead, the BRCC team has made gifting easy for you. If you know Dad’s roast preference, choose from our light, medium, and dark roast bundles. If you’re still trying to help him figure out a favorite, or if he likes to switch it up, check out our new roast bundle and Complete Mission Fuel Kit.

You can never go wrong with Tacticock. Photo by Kurtis Frasier/Coffee or Die.

Merica Tacticock T-Shirt

Price: $28

Most dads have that one shirt they wear so often and for so long that it wears too thin for public decency. It becomes the “mowing shirt,” but still sometimes sneaks into a daily rotation. Help Dad out with a sweet new shirt — and retire those old ones while he’s not looking. 

The legendary Tacticock and his elite unit of tactical peckers have been making a name for themselves. One could even say that this gun-toting rooster has become the stuff of legends. Finally, a veteran T-shirt that really clucks.

Flip flops for more than the beach. Image from Combat Flip Flops.

Combat Flip Flops AK

Price: $69.99

Former Army Ranger Matt Griffin launched Combat Flip Flops, which was featured on Shark Tank in 2016, out of his basement. It produced 4,000 pairs of flip-flops before moving aboveground and expanding production. This veteran-owned operation continues to update their flops, and the new AKs have an ergonomic footbed. So even if Dad ran on pavement for his entire military career, his knees won’t hate him when he wears these flip flops. Bonus: They offer amputee retrofit straps for dads operating with a prosthetic.

Bourbon + barbecue = a perfect weekend. Photo courtesy of Mutt's Sauce.

Mutt’s Sauce Limited Edition Bourbon Sauce

Price: $19.56

Who doesn’t love a limited-edition product? Especially when that product comes from a generationally veteran-owned company, can be used for grilling, and contains alcohol. Checks all the boxes for a great weekend. This bourbon sauce is infused with award-winning Rubicon Creek Bourbon Whiskey from Dayton Barrel Works, so there’s no faux bourbon flavoring — it’s real alcohol. Just try not to drink the bottle of sauce.
