If he spends hours weeding, digging and tending to the flower beds, then your dad definitely needs a quality sun hat. We love this one from Terrain because it comes with mesh side panels for ventilation, has a removable chin strap and has been treated with Insect Shield to keep away those pesky mosquitoes.
