If there's one thing that's always on every father's mind, it's meat. Let's be honest here. It's part of male culture that you just can't ignore. So in the smartest move ever, Oscar Mayer has come up with the best Father's Day gift any dad could ask for, complete with an e-com site that marks the company's first-ever sales outside of retail locations. Bacon gift sets as part of The Oscar Mayer Original Collection. (Yes, they are actually selling these.)
Each set comes delicately bundled in a luxurious velvet jewelers box, and includes 18-20 slices of delicious Oscar Mayer Original Bacon. And you know dad loves to nomnomnom on bacon, so choose from one (or more) of three personalized gift sets: The Commander, which comes with a stainless steel money-clip engraved with the words "Bringin' it Home" and an image of a bacon strip; The Matador, which features two handsome bacon strip cufflinks; and The Woodsman, which includes a rugged 12 function multitool with a bacon strip image carved into the handle.
Just think about it. The look on his face when he opens that box, the feeling in his heart and the tears in his eyes--that moment only means one thing: fatherly love.
