ClassicCut Bypass Pruners
Does your dad love to garden or work in the yard? Pruners are the go-to tool when you’re deadheading flowers or cutting pliable stems or small woody twigs. ClassicCut Bypass Pruners are a good general-purpose tool for trimming stems of up to about 1/2 in. Ratchet pruners multiply the ratchet action to cut up to 3/4-in. stems. Any bigger and you risk the chance of breaking the pruners. Click here to see more gardening tool gift ideas.

This portable generator has clear and easy starting directions and an LED dashboard that displays how much time you have before you run out of fuel.

For the person who loves to make pizza, now there’s the PizzaQue—a dedicated propane-powered pizza oven (26 lbs.) that’s easy to take camping, to the beach, tailgating or your weekend place. It takes about 20 minutes for the PizzaQue to heat up, it reaches high temperatures you can’t get in a home oven (well over 700 degrees F), and it has two built-in pizza stones. Pizzas take only about five minutes each to bake! Click here to learn how to use tank weight to determine how much propane you have left.
