“Every Father’s Day and birthday I alternate sending Dad the beef brisket and the sausage from the Salt Lick. It’s his favorite BBQ spot from his college years and it comes in such a big quantity he’s forced to have a party.” ($59.95, saltlickbbq.com)

“My dear ol’ dad is turning 70 this year, so the family is planning to give him a long awaited adventure for his birthday and Father’s Day… an African safari trip! He could definitely tough it out in the wild, but for the sake of my sisters and I—we’re staying at the Xudum Lodge in Botswana, with private plunge pools and pretty 180 degree views.” (Xudum Lodge in Botswana, andbeyondafrica.com)

“My dad is a slight insomniac and thus a voracious reader—he knocks out a book or two a week. I think Robert Caro’s “The Passage of Power,” the latest installment on Lyndon B. Johnson (it’s the fourth in a five volume series) should keep him occupied for at least a few weeks.” ($35, amazon.com)

“Is it a failure of imagination to suggest a steak dinner for Father’s Day? I’m taking my dad to Minetta Tavern to split their spectacular Cote de Boeuf for two, originality—and arteries—be damned.” ($124, minettatavernny.com)
