Beyond The Tie
Though Ben Stiller recently admitted that he wants a tie for Father's Day (he explained, "That's when you feel like you've actually become a dad - when you get that official Father's Day tie."), most men would prefer something a little more exciting. So instead of subjecting Dad to another tie this year (unless you are Ben Stiller's kids), surprise him with a totally personal and out-of-the-box gift that will make this Father's Day one to remember. Here we suggest some fun gifts that Dad is sure to love.
Check out our pick of the top 7 unique Father's Day gifts:
As a general rule, men hate shopping — particularly if it's for something necessary, but utterly unexciting like socks. With Sockscription, Dad may never have to shop for socks again. For $89 annually, the service delivers three pairs of high-quality Italian-made socks three times a year. "Sockscribers" can choose from many styles including calf socks, knee socks, athletic socks, ski socks or cashmere silk socks. Order at www.blacksocks.com.
Send him suds
If dear old dad likes to relax after a long, hard day with an ice-cold brewski, sign him up for a beer of the month club. Check out www.beermonthclub.com, which send its members twelve 12-oz. bottles of different handcrafted microbrewed beers from around the world every month.
Most men seem to gravitate toward techie gadgets – and keeping up with the trends is never-ending. Help Dad keep up the times by getting him the latest and great techie tool, whether it's a digital frame, new iPod or BlackBerry. Check out our Father's Day techie gift guide for more gadget ideas.
Dad's day out
Treat Dad to a day on the links, a quiet morning casting a line into the river or taking in a ballgame together. The best thing you can give your father is the gift of spending some quality time together and creating some wonderful new memories.
Take over Dad's duties
Dad works hard all the time, so why not give him the day off! Have him kick up his feet and relax while you mow the lawn or wash his car. If he has a mile-long "honey do" list of things to fix around the house, call up a handyman and have some of those projects taken care of for him.
Man on the move
Luxurious luggage is the ideal gift for the man who travels often. Help Dad stay organized when he's away from home with a sleek and sophisticated travel kit such as the Tumi Alpha hanging leather travel kit, featuring numerous interior and exterior pockets.
Dad's had the same recliner since you can remember, but in all honesty, it's seen better days. Surprise him by having the chair reupholstered in a comfortable new fabric that's similar to the original one. No matter what it is that dad holds near and dear, he'll appreciate your heartfelt sentiments.
