If Father’s Day were a store, I’m pretty sure it would be Bass Pro.
Bass Pro Shops carries sporting equipment and outdoor gear. And when I say they carry it, I mean they have it all. Whether your guy loves camping, hiking, boating, backpacking, fishing, hunting, golfing, or watching Nascar…you’ll find something at Bass Pro for him.
If you have never been in a brick-and-mortar version of Bass Pro, you really should. It’s like an indoor Disneyland – the entire shop (and it’s HUGE in there) is “themed” – you’ll find hunting-lodge decor, “wild” animals at every corner, a huge aquarium to stare at for hours, walls that are painted to match the atmosphere, even nature-inspired music. This is one store that you can walk into and not come out for hours because it’s an “experience.”
The online shop also carries a huge selection of items.
For Father’s Day, you might want to consider the:
Bass Pro Shops Extreme XPS Woo Daves Signature Series Spinning Rod ($99.99 – on sale right now for $69.88) and Johnny Morris Signature Series Spinning Reels ($99.99 – on sale right now for $79.99). My husband is thrilled about this new combo. It’s extremely high-quality and my husband was telling me all the “specs” about the product this morning, but I have to admit he kind of “lost me” when he started getting technical. If your husband (or dad) loves to fish, he will love this set.
Bass Pro Shops Anti-Gravity Lounger ($79.99). Perhaps your husband is more the “kick back and relax” type of guy. Or maybe he’s an active outdoorsman that likes to come back to camp and unwind after a long day. He’ll likely be snoring away in no time on this multi-position adjustable reclining lounger with matching pillow. It “confirms to your body for comfort and ergonomic support.”
Of course, if you end up waiting until the very last minute (which I never do…ahem), you can always send him an E-Gift Card (which will be e-mailed directly to his inbox!).
Or you can try winning your present…enter the Bass Pro Father’s Day Sweepstakes between now and June 15, for your chance to win a Coleman Screened Weathermaster 2-Room Tent.
It’s not too late. Find a Bass Pro near you…and feel free to take the kids along. They’ll love it. Hey, you could even stop in at the on-site restaurant for lunch and make it a day trip!
