With Father’s Day on June 19th this year, we officially have only 10 days left to shop. Dads are often hard to buy for – so we’ve created a list of our top five picks to help you with your gift giving!
There are so many different types of dads out there – today we’re going to help with five of them; the sports fanatic, the businessman, the gadget guru, the food connoisseur, and the dad-who-has-everything-already.
The Sports Fanatic Dad – We all know him. He’s the guy that wears his football or baseball jersey every weekend even if it isn’t his team playing. He’s the guy that you can hear screaming at the TV from the other side of the house. And he’s the guy that never misses his kids’ sports game. What better gift than a day at the ballpark? Hotdogs, beers, fries, and some good old “take me out to the ballgame” singing. Depending on your team, tickets often start around $15 bucks – so you can take the whole family! Check out MLB.com for more information.
The Businessman Dad – He’s the guy that never goes a day without a suit or his smart phone. He likes to work hard, play hard and look good while he does it! Keep him young, but stylish, with these adorable cufflinks from CuffArt.com! Our personal faves are their Calvin and Hobbs Cufflinks, but they have a huge variety ranging from antique to modern and classic.

The Gadget Guru Dad – He’s the first to try out the trendiest new electronics. iPad? Got it – in fact he was the guy waiting in line at 6AM to upgrade to the iPad 2. 3D TV? Old news in your house… who needs IMAX when you’ve got Dolby Surround and a state of the art theatre room downstairs? Keep his gadgets charged with this awesome and portable Solar Gadget Charger from Red Envelope. Plugs right into a USB port (or mini-USB tip) and charges at the same rate as your regular conventional charger – this is a must have to keep your pops running.
The Food Connoisseur Dad – He’s the dad who loves the finer things in life. He always tries out the newest restaurants, enjoys wine flights with his meal, and he’s probably even the resident chef in your household. An easy gift for this guy is obvious – a gift certificate to his favorite spot. How about sending him his favorite food EVERY MONTH!? We’re huge fans of Amazing Clubs – we even suggested them in our Mother’s Day post. Everything from breakfast, to BBQ sauce, to Jerky, Amazing Clubs makes it easy to make your dad feel special every month.
The Dad-Who-Has-Everything – This guy is hard. You want to give him something he wants, but when you ask him he says “nothing.” How frustrating! Nothing’s better for this guy then just some good old fashioned, quality time with YOU! Take him out to lunch, the movies, hang out and play board games – whatever you decide to do - he’s sure to be happy (your wallet will be too).
