This year, skip the tie and give Dad the gift of DIY. Here, eight fun food- and booze-centric kits that make perfect Father’s Day presents.
The Homemade Gin Kit
No, this kit does not give you tools to turn a bathtub into a still (which is super-illegal, just FYI). Instead, it’s filled with everything you need to transform a basic bottle of vodka (supply your own) into a delicious, aromatic gin. $49.95; birchbox.com.
Williams-Sonoma’s simple kit supplies sausage lovers with the gear and spices to make three different varieties: breakfast, Italian and chorizo. The only thing you need to buy separately is the meat. $49.95; williams-sonoma.com.
