Father’s Day is this Sunday! And if you’re anything like us, it means normally you’re at the local drugstore on your way to visit him for brunch, seeking a gift that gives the illusion that you’d thought about it for longer than the moment it took to slap your forehead and realize you forgot to buy something.
That’s why we’re coming to the rescue. Ford has tons of officially licensed merchandise – even items that can be personalized. (You know, if you aren’t giving the gift of a Ford vehicle!) The official Ford Marketplace and Ford Images websites are both offering discounts (you can also hit up the official Ford Store on eBay). There is a plethora of options, whether Dad is master of his grill domain, likes to wear his Blue Oval loyalty or prefers the collectibles.
On Ford Images, you can buy custom artwork, such as a personalized Mustang parking sign. Over at the Ford Store, there are items like a Built Ford Tough hat, a Ford Racing T-shirt with the Mustang Boss 302 logo and a shop stool. For the outdoorsy Dad, how about a giant folding chair or a BBQ set? Nothing hits the spot better than burgers off the grill accompanied by beverages in Ford Tough drinkware. If Dad’s a fan of the GT, there’s a GT-themed wireless mouse, complete with functional headlights, while T-Bird enthusiasts will dig a pair of sterling silver steering wheel cuff links inspired by the 1962 Thunderbird. If your Pops is a Mustang guy, there’s a 1/25-scale model kit of the 2010 Mustang GT Coupe with a hood that opens to reveal the 4.6-liter V8.
Armed with inspiring ideas, we’re now off to shop for our own dear ol’ Dad. From all of us at Ford Motor Company and The Ford Story, Happy Father’s Day!
