10 Top Gifts for Father’s Day

10 Top Gifts for Father’s Day!

Shopping for the men in our lives is often a challenge!  There’s little that they wish for and when asked, aren’t very helpful in their suggestions – my dad always asks for handkerchiefs or socks and my hubby always asks for a night out with me!  Despite the lack of input from the men in my life, I do have some fun ideas that might make your Father’s Day shopping a bit easier!

For the Dad Who

Loves to Grill –

The Portable Grill by Coleman


The portable grill by Coleman will allow dad to take his love for grilled food on the road!  Whether at a tailgate, park or camp ground, this 36″ collapsible gas grill has lots of cooking space and wheels for easy transport!  (Amazon*, Coleman Road Trip Grill, $169.99)

Enjoys a Cocktail –

Whiskey Stones

Whiskey Stones from Teroforma are the perfect thing for serving dad’s cocktail on the rocks!  These stones are crafted from soapstone and freeze as cold as ice cubes, but don’t melt and dilute the drink.  A quick rinse and refreeze allow the cubes to be used again and again.  (Uncommon Goods*, Whiskey Stones & Gift Set)

Wears a Navy Blazer that Could Use an Update (and isn’t this every guy?) –

Monogrammed Blazer Buttons


Give dad’s jacket a distinctive touch with monogrammed blazer buttons from Ben Silver.  The jewelry-quality set includes nine buttons, three for the front of the blazer and six smaller buttons for the sleeves.  This is a timeless and classic gift for any man! (Ben Silver, Monogrammed Blazer Buttons, $198)

Cares about Being “Green” –

Universal Hybrid Charger


The Solio Classic Universal Hybrid Charger allows users to charge cell phone, iPods and other gadgets with solar power!  This charger also has the capacity to charge from a wall outlet, but using the power of the sun is eco friendly and is a terrific power source in an emergency.  (Amazon*, Universal Hybrid Charger, $89.98)

Loves Astronomy or Could Use a New Hobby –

Celestron Sky Scout Personal Planetarium


Offer dad the moon and the stars this Father’s Day with the Celestron Sky Scout Personal Planetarium!  This amazing gadget uses GPS technology to locate over 6,000 stars, planets and constellations and accepts Sky Tour media cards for interactive tours of the night sky.  I especially love this gift because it gives fathers a wonderful opportunity to explore new worlds with their children!  (Amazon*, Celestron Sky Scout Personal Planetarium)

Thinks that Grooming Matters –

Facial Fuel from Kiehls

Father's Day Gifts - facial fuel
If the man in your life likes to be pampered and enjoys exceptional grooming products, Kiehls offers a wonderful line of skin-care products for men!  These cleansers, lotions and more have only the highest quality ingredients and are surprisingly effective.  Watch for gift sets at special times of year.  (Kiehls, Facial Fuel)

Needs a Beach or Pool Upgrade –

Vilebrequin Swim Trunks

Swim trunks can fade quickly with the effects of salt water and chlorine, so a stylish replacement could be in order this Father’s Day!  Vilebrequin trunks are definitely a splurge, but the patterns and colors are fabulous!  Two good looking choices available at Neiman Marcus include the Bora Bora and the Car and Palm Tree Okoa Swim Trunks! ($200 each)

Still Calls CDs “Records” –

The Ion Turntable


if your dad is still holding onto his LP’s, this is the gift for him!  The Ion Turntable will play old vinyl records and also download the music onto an iPod or PC.  This year, let dad take his classic tunes anywhere he goes! (ion audio, The Ion Turntable, $249)

Is a Baseball Fan –

Ballpark Cuff Links


This is a truly special gift for the baseball loving dad!  Created from salvaged, wooden seats from America’s most famous and beloved stadiums, these sterling silver cuff links are coated with the original paint of the home team’s colors and hallmarked with the stadium’s name!  This year, give your dad a piece of baseball history!  Available parks include: Fenway, Yankee, Busch, Tiger, Comisky, Shea, Dodger, Wrigley or RFK. (redenvelope.com, $159.95 to 189.95)

For Any Dad

The Ticket Stub Diary

This gift is perfect for any guy of any age!  This small keepsake diary is made especially for concert goers, sports fans, theatre lovers, and more!  The diary gives dad a place to preserve up to 118 special ticket stubs, along with a spot to record memories of each event!  To make this gift even more special, consider putting real tickets into the diary!  Baseball?  Movies?  A Concert?  Choose whatever your dad likes best! (Ticket Stub Diary, $10)
