father's day gift guide

Father’s Day is fast approaching and it is time to think about what to get your dad or spouse. My dad has everything he needs so it is always difficult (a pain in the ass!) to think up something clever and fun. You could always do a fun outing together. My dad likes seeing the blockbusters in the theater but my mom is not fond of sitting still for that long. I can make him a gift certificate for dinner and a movie. You can download a complimentary Simon+Kabuki gift certificate design here. Or I could purchase his favorite movie and some gourmet popcorn. What man does not like beef jerky? How about picking some funky new flavors and popping it into a basket or a jerky of the month gift certificate. Personalized gifts are always great. Does your dad have an iPad or iPhone? How about a great case. Or pick his favorite superhero and let him know that he has always been your Superman. I love this combo iphone case/wallet! If you live near your dad how about a bike so that you can spend time together cruising the neighborhood. Even if you don’t have a lot of money or other siblings to help out you can make your dad some mix CDs of his favorite oldies or help set up Pandora on his home computer then treat him to a barbecue. I think most men have the barbecue gene so anything barbecue related is a great and easy gift. Here is a great how to video from Bobby Flay. Now I better get shopping! Got any...

It seems like he already has everything within my price range. I want the gift to be useful (yeah that box of chocolates is useful, but not for long). So I decided this year I would look for a gift early so it’s not oh another golf shirt, uh thanks. Well then, here are some ideas I found (that mostly pertain to my dad but nonetheless useful): Ball Game Tickets (because he is a sports nut) Go Giants! Local sports team tickets are a no-brainer for the sports fanatic without a supply of season tickets at their disposal. Extra fun would be getting tickets for the whole family to enjoy the game with him. Let’s go! iPad Case (because how cool is that?) Temple Bags Leather iPad case. This one is classy and rugged at the same time. This case features WWII canvas that has been salvaged and re-purposed to allow you to own a piece of history. Now someone buy him the iPad and we are all set.   Golf GPS (because he lives and breathes golf, duh) Garmin Approach G5 Waterproof Touchscreen GPS. Come to think of it he may already have this.   Headphones (because my kids visit often, and they are loudsters) these are from Marshall Headphones. Made with comfort in mind, they feature both in-ear and headband styles. The in-ear model can be used with...
