Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is getting closer and closer (June 21 in the US, UK and Canada). Following up on my list of Mother’s Day gift ideas, I figured I ought to do one for Dad’s Day gift ideas too. We had some great, unique gift ideas in the comments and that was fun, so let’s try this again.

Please, add your awesome Father’s Day gift ideas in the comments and I’ll probably add them to this post if I think the’re cool and/or unique enough.

Honestly, I wish I had a child so I could get a few of these as presents on a day that’s 6 months away from my birthday. That would be sweet. Some of the gifts are pretty typical, but others would be an awesome gift to give your dad. Remember, it’s not too far away… might want to start looking just a little early this year, otherwise you’ll end up getting him that same ‘ol generic tie.

What other great Father’s Day gifts can you think of? What are you going to do for your dad on Father’s day?

    For example, you can purchase CDs if he is fond of listening to music.

    Nate, for #14, you can add a couple more vendors. westcoastshaving.com is located in Cali, vintagebladesllc.com is solid, and old guys can learn how to do it right on badgerandblade.com

    Yea, that thing is awesome. If I had a car (and a kid I suppose), I’d want that too. Good call…
