He takes out the garbage, cleans the gutters and picks up after the dog – Dad is the champion of chores. Now it’s his turn to sit back, relax and enjoy his rightful day to unwind. Make his Father’s Day even more special with something a little less expected. From fishing gear to a paddleboard tour, here are five gifts that will truly surprise.

PERFECT CATCH
While there’s no better catch than Mom, the new BaitRunner reel makes it much easier to hook a big one. An updated spool-lip feature allows for a more even cast and, more importantly, fewer tangles.

STAND UP
Let Dad take a stand – on a paddleboard, on the Navesink River. Book him a tour with Navesink River Paddle Excursions. The two-hour jaunt is not only great exercise, but it’s also a wonderful way to experience the natural beauty the river has to offer.

SOLE MAN
The Italian take on the classic topsider, it wears like a sneaker yet similarly wears well with everything. Lined with the softest suede and most luxurious leather, this gift is a shoe-in.

WELL RED
Hand selected by Nicholas Harary, owner and executive chef of Restaurant Nicholas in Red Bank, this red wine trio pairs perfectly with anything he cooks on the grill. Cheers.

WASHED UP
The gift of a squeaky clean car – there’s not a Dad from Red Bank to Eatontown who wouldn’t flip for it. Give him a prepaid book of 10 washes, or a gift card for a full detail, and watch him (literally) jump for joy.
