Family

Even amid uncertain times, as we all navigate the new normal that is COVID-19 pandemic, we can still celebrate those dearest to us — yes, we're talking about our dear ole dads — even if we some of us won't be able to see them in person.

This Father's Day will certainly go down as one we'll never forget; for many, it will be our first Father's Day in the middle of the pandemic. But despite these trying times, we can still find something special for Dad online and send it his way.

If you're unable to see your Pops in person, for whatever reason, perhaps he can open his gift while on a Father's Zoom celebration? Either way, he'll certainly appreciate the thoughtfulness amid a Father's Day unlike any other. 

1. Snack Board

What Dad doesn't love snacks?! This snack board features a platform for placing food, as well as a bamboo wood cover for cutting cheese, veggies, and other snacks.
