1. Small Batch Bourbon vs Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail
It’s hard to go wrong with a gift of small batch bourbon. But for a real bonding experience with your father, how about a trip with him along Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail? Visit eight major distilleries (and many other smaller ones) across scenic bluegrass country from Louisville to Knoxville. Sit on the porch of of a local Bed & Breakfast in a rocking chair and sip some of your day’s purchases. Or if you’re strapped for time, check out the Urban Bourbon Trail weaving among Louisville bars and restaurants. Mmmm, bourbon.

2. Beats Headphones vs. Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Dr. Dre doesn’t need another $3 billion. Instead of buying your dad some headphones to isolate him from the family, how about you invite him to join you on some musical travel? While you may not want to camp with pops at Bonaroo, you could try joining him on a music cruise with some classic bands, or check out the generation-spanning exhibits at Cleveland’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, where dad can explain to you what “LP records” were.
