I think a gift card to a sporting goods (or motorcycle) store is good also.
My step-dad used to like to fish, so one year, as a funny gift/joke, I bought one of those hats that has the brim all around. like you see fishermen wear in movies (like what they call a bucket hat).
I also got a bunch of fishing lures, put rubber worms on hooks, then I hooked them all over the hat & gave it to him for Father's Day, with the intention that he'd take the lures off & use them, while wearing the hat (which was too heavy to wear with all the stuff anyway!). He loved it so much, he refused to take anything off it. When he passed away a few years ago & we were going through his things, we found that hat neatly packed away in his closet-he'd kept it 20 years!
