Five Tasty Father's Day Gifts for Your Chef-Dad
It's that time of year again. On June 17, you could do the usual and offer Dad a Hallmark card and whatever random item you may or may not have just remembered to pick up on the way to brunch. Because he really needs another coffee mug, or a tie he'll never wear. Or you could really make his eyes pop and his mouth water with one of these five gifts -- sure to make your food-loving dad grin from ear to ear.
5. Vinturi Wine Aerator

At just under $40, this kitchen gadget it sure to get your money's worth. Any wine drinker -- vino enthusiast or not -- will appreciate how much different this small gadget can make. For a few extra seconds of time, aerating will bring out flavor and intensity in any wine. The company website is even offering free shipping to most states in honor of Dad's big day.
4. Backyard Smoker
We know a dad who got this last year, and as he had tons of fun smoking anything he could get his hands on, we had almost just as much fun eating it up. If you've got a grill master in the family, he'll appreciate a new gadget to expand his smoky outdoor empire. You can spend quite a bit on these babies if you want -- the popular Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5-inch model goes for $300 on Amazon while simpler versions such as the Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker and Grill will set you back $120.
