Father’s Day Gift Guide: Outdoor Style

June 18, 2020


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Backcountry and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn / gifted by yours truly.

It turns out that Father’s Day is quickly [we’re talking days] approaching. If it wasn’t for time with my family this past weekend, I would have no idea that Father’s Day is just a few days away [wait, what, how?] Thankfully, it was brought up in conversation how Sunday is the special day and that a celebration should be planned — nothing like a little procrastination station when it comes to event planning in our house 😉

In case you are late to receive the “hey it’s Father’s Day on Sunday” memo, have no fear, I’ve got products to share that yes, there is still time to receive in time. Fortunately, my dad excels at modeling as a side gig and was happy to allow me to snap a few pics of him this past weekend as we soaked up our first official weekend on the lake. Whether your guy that you’re buying for is outdoorsy in the sense that he loves to hike, camp, bike or run OR is outdoorsy in the sense that he enjoys having beverages while floating on a boat, Backcountry is here for it. With their fast 2-day shipping and wide variety of products that I know he’ll love, you can’t go wrong shopping Backcountry for his needs this Father’s Day. To help, I put a quick little Father’s Day gift guide near the bottom of the post you can take advantage of! Don’t forget to use code YELLOW15 for 15% off your first purchase at Backcountry.com [exclusions apply]!

Before we get to the father’s day gifts, don’t forget about yourself 😉 If you’re hoping to enjoy time with that dad or guy of yours, you may need to dress the part too. One shouldn’t have to spend the day at the lake alone..

Now, onto him. My all-time favorite gift to give any guy: this Patagonia Better Sweater. Every guy in my life that owns this loves it and it’s a safe guarantee he’ll get much use out of it. If you’re looking for something under $50, you can never go wrong with a new YETI Tumbler. If he’s a coffee lover – awesome, it will keep it hot for 5-6 hours. If he’s a “on the rocks” type of guy – even better, it will keep it cold for 24 hours.

Dad, I’m so grateful for you and the love that you bring to my life. I couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for all of your support, creator of countless laughs and the glass half full outlook you have on life. You deserve the world [and a cool sweater ;)] While it’s been a crazy couple of years with highs and lows [a broken neck will cause that rollercoaster of emotions] you’ve maintained your happy go lucky spirit and I will forever stand in awe of your strength and dedication. Love you, dad and happy [early-ish] Father’s Day!

Now, for the rest of you — get your shopping on with this Father’s Day Gift Guide from Backcountry:

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
