Chain restaurant with a focus on steak. 

Send a Longhorn Steakhouse gift card

Longhorn Steakhouse is the place to go to when you’re craving steak and a great price. They serve tender and juicy steaks in a casual setting that’s different from the average steakhouse. They have several different cuts of steak and they are served alongside great sides that go very well with them. You can get a ribeye steak, a t-bone steak, a porterhouse steak, a New York strip steak, and a filet. You can even get these steaks alongside some delicious seafood. Try their loaded baked potato soup or their French onion soup with your meal. Anything you choose will turn out great. 

And this restaurant doesn’t only serve steak. Longhorn still has many options that work for everyone. They have chicken, salmon, pork chops, and more. You can also get a sandwich, a burger, or a salad if that’s what you’re into. They even have great lunchtime deals, which is something else that makes them very unlike the average steakhouse!

3. Sunoco

A practical gift that may seem boring but any adult who drives knows- it’s not.

Email A Sunoco Gift Card

At first the mention of giving your dad a Sunoco gift card may seem boring or even off-putting but anyone who drives regularly knows that this could be their number one gift on the day. With gas prices fluctuating more and more each day, normally on the higher side, seeing your tank needs filled isn’t a fun feeling, but having a Sunoco gift card can change that because with it you can pay for the whole tank or at least part of it, and who doesn’t love free gas? With over 5,000 locations all over the country it won’t take you long to find a Sunoco close to your dad’s that he can use next time he’s out and needs gas for his regular work trips or an upcoming vacation.
