Father's Day Gifts: Gift Ideas for the Best Dad Ever

Father's Day is just around the corner, and it's time to celebrate the amazing dads in our lives with thoughtful and unique gifts. But sometimes it's hard to think of creative gifts year after year, that Dad will love and actually use!

So, whether you're shopping for your dad, your husband, or your father figures, Texas Hill Country Olive Co. has the perfect Father's Day gifts to show your appreciation. Here are some great gift ideas to help you find the perfect present for the best dad ever.

For the Dads Who Love to Grill

Sure, not all Dads love to grill, but we find that more often than not, it's a favorite fatherly pastime, especially when it's nice out (along with a six-pack of his favorite brew). And we've got the perfect gifts for the Dads who love to grill - especially with a delicious marinade.

First off, did you know you can grill with olive oil? It's a common misconception that olive oil doesn't have a high enough smoke point for grilling, and yet a good-quality extra virgin olive oil (like ours) often has a smoke point around 410 degrees Fahrenheit.

A little bit of olive oil is essential when grilling, not only to keep your meat from sticking to the grill, but to add a burst of additional delicious flavor to your dish.

The Best Olive Oils for Grilling

Here are a few of our favorite combinations, depending on what dad enjoys grilling:

Burgers: Sola Stella is the perfect choice if you want some buttery notes. For a delicious burger using our EVOO, check out this recipe!

Steaks: If you're looking for a classic robust olive oil to give your steak some peppery notes, try the Texas Miller's Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Want to lean even more into the peppery flavor? Try it with our Black Pepper Garlic Infused Olive Oil!

Kebabs: When it comes to kebabs, regardless of the protein, adding some Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flare is key. Our Harissa Infused Olive Oil is an absolute must for kebabs - especially spicy lamb kebabs!

Seafood: We love throwing fin fish and shellfish on the grill! Although the same Sola Stella pairs excellently with fish, we love to use our Lemon Infused Olive Oil on seafood dishes!

Vegetables: Grilled vegetables pair so well with our olive oil, but the pairings vary depending on the veggies! For more detailed pairings, check out our blog post.

Balsamic Vinegar for BBQ Marinades and Sauces

We also have a few Balsamic Vinegars that are incredible in BBQ marinades. Some are actually staples in many of our customers' grilled recipes. Here are a few of our must haves:

Bourbon Balsamic Vinegar: This balsamic vinegar is a favorite amongst dads. It makes an incredible marinade or sauce for basically everything (but overpowers fish). Using it on grilled steak, pork, chicken, and lamb are absolute game changers. To learn more ways to use the bourbon balsamic, click here!

Hot Honey Balsamic Vinegar: For lovers of spicy and sweet, this balsamic is for you. Grill some chicken wings, toss them in this balsamic, and boom - you've got the best meal. Or Dad can use it as a BBQ or steak sauce ingredient!

Persian Lime Balsamic Vinegar: Who doesn't love a little citrus in a marinade? Especially with grilled seafood, like shrimp or salmon. This balsamic, along with our White Lemon, will take your seafood up a notch - and Dad will thank you for the best gift!

Our Favorite Grill Gifts for Dad

Looking for a gift set for the Dad that loves grilling? Here are our top picks that include some, if not all, of the products we mentioned above!

Father's Day Gifts - Lone Star Mini Set

1. Lone Star Mini Set: $52

This gift set is perfect for the Dad that loves to grill! The robust Miller's Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect for a grilling oil - especially for burgers, steaks, and flavors that could use some peppery notes. Our Jalapeño Infused Olive Oil makes the most delicious aioli for burgers and fries, or use it in a spicy marinade. And of course, the Bourbon and Hot Honey Balsamic Vinegars are a MUST for BBQ lovers. From marinades to BBQ sauces, both are essentials for Dads that love to grill - especially for BBQ and Texan lovers!

2. Holiday Favorites Keepsake Box: $68

Yes, there are some similarities between this box and the last, most notably the inclusions of both the Bourbon and Hot Honey Balsamic Vinegars. But Dad's love them both! This is a great option if you think Dad will love using the Black Pepper Garlic Infused Olive Oil when grilling. Not only is it delicious on proteins, but it makes a wonderful addition to sauces and marinades. And we must tell you about the Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It's the perfect mix of buttery and peppery, and takes any dish to the next level.

Make Dad a Delicious Breakfast

Whether your Dad loves a breakfast in bed, or a breakfast at the table with the whole family, starting Father's Day off with a delicious meal is a sure-fire way to go.

We've got a few breakfast recipes that will impress Dad, and make wonderful gifts he "doesn't want anything this year" or you're worried about the price tag on other gourmet items.

Olive Oil Drop Biscuits: Although an easy staple, they're always a crowd pleaser - especially if you're making everything from scratch! Drop biscuits are such a simple way to make a delectable breakfast bread, and we have to say our recipe for parmesan chive drop biscuits (with Black Pepper Garlic Infused Olive Oil) and some of the best we've ever had. 

Go savory with biscuits and gravy, a biscuit breakfast sandwich, or serve it with some homemade balsamic jam! We are pretty partial to our Fig Balsamic Jam!

Breakfast Frittata: A frittata is a great way to show Dad you care! And this recipe for an Asparagus Goat Cheese Frittata is our absolute favorite. It's rich, decadent, and full of healthy and peppery Texas Miller's Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Eggs Any Style: You can never go wrong with cooking eggs in Dad's favorite way. But, we have to say, infused olive oil drizzled on eggs is a game changer. You will never eat your eggs without it again! Our COO Bill swears by the Harissa Infused Olive Oil on his eggs in the morning, and our Store Manager Jaclyn always tops her avocado toast and eggs with Jalapeño Infused Olive Oil. A personal favorite - mix some White Lemon Balsamic Vinegar and Sicilian Infused Olive Oil (garlic and herb flavor) to dress some arugula next to soft scrambled eggs. You'll never look back!
