Lighters probably still come to mind when most people think of Zippo. However, as smoking rates have declined over the years, the company has emphasized Zippo lighters as keepsakes and camping essentials. Zippo even launched a Twitter campain, #ShareThePain, encouraging folks to share stories of losing their beloved Zippo lighters.
The company has also diversified into selling a variety of mementos, tools and camping and outdoors products that could make for Father's Day gifts that are at once unique, practical and constant.
If Dad burns the family trash or lights campfires, he may appreciate a classic Zippo lighter, an item that some men will keep for their lifetimes and pass down through generations.
You can choose a Zippo for Dad with his favorite NFL team's logo, a military or patriotic emblem, an automotive insignia or one of many other styles, or have a lighter personally engraved for him. You can even upload your own picture to have printed on a lighter. Zippo lighters start at around $25 and come with a lifetime fix-it-for-free guarantee.
