#FACT: Dads Love Hammocks & These Are the 5 Best to Buy Him For Father’s Day

This is how you give the gift of relaxation.

By Courtney Thompson

Let’s face, there’s little in life that is more relaxing than snoozing in a hammock on a warm, breezy day. Throw a glass of wine in one hand, a good book in the other and a James Taylor soundtrack on in the background, and well folks, we’ve achieved bliss.

And while I love me a good hammock sesh, you know who really, really loves them? Dads. That’s right, since the beginning of time, dads everywhere have loved kicking back in a hammock—subbing in a beer for the wine and a baseball game for the James Taylor, of course. So here we’ve rounded up the five best options you can surprise dad with on Father’s Day this year. The gift is two-fold—something that show him how much you care, and one that forces him to take a break from bills and lawn mowing to instead spend some much-deserved time unwinding.

Grandin Road Quilted Hammock

We love this hammock for many reasons—one, it’s quilted, all-weather bed is so fluffy and comfortable it’s sure to lull dad into a nap. Two, it’s made in America by a family company that have been crafting hammocks for generations. Three, it’s pretty pattern will brighten up any backyard space.

Best Choice Products Double Hammock

The most casual hammock in our roundup, this one is also the least expensive (and thanks to Amazon Prime, it can get there fast!). A double wide frame can hold up to 450-pounds/two adults, and the  cotton bed cocoons around your bodies upon climbing in…maybe stirring up a bit of romance all the while! Easy to assemble, the hammock also comes with a carrying case, so you can quickly pack it up if you’re looking to take your relaxation fest on-the-go.

Beachcrest Home Dorinda Cotton Hammock with Stand

Another cotton hammock made out list, and this one is a bit slighter in size and likely a better fit for smaller outdoor spaces. What do we like best about it? Well, besides be a cozy hammock, we also loved how sturdy the Beachcrest was—weight capacity is 450 pounds and the hammock is easily able to accommodate an adult and two kids, or two adults without rocking, swaying or feeling flimsy. A great option for taller, huskier dads.

Island Bay 13 ft. Sienna Diamond Stitch Quilted Hammock with Russian Pine Stand

If this hammock doesn’t scream elegance, we don’t know what does. The gorgeous arc of the pine stand is the focal point, but don’t discount how beautiful—and comfortable!—the quilted polyester bed is, as well. Definitely appropriate for a larger backyard space, this hammock is as sturdy as they come. And given it’s current slashed price, it’s also a smokin’ deal.

Algoma Hammock 8-piece Set

Never was there ever a more utility focused hammock than this one! Beyond being, well, a hammock, the Algoma also includes drink and tablet holders that attach to the hammock bed via metal clasps—meaning, no balancing a beer on the grass anymore or laying a tablet down only to have a kiddo run by and step on it! A carrying case is included, to boot.
