Top 10 Finds for Father's Day

Father's Day is two weeks away.  Do you know what you're buying for Dad yet?  Don't wait til the last minute...our own Emily has prepared a gift guide with the most unique gifts for Father's Day.  When I was product manager for Father's Day cards at Hallmark many moons ago, I learned that dads get the short end of the stick versus moms.  They only receive 60% as many cards as moms, and more collect calls are made on Father's Day than any other day!  So, be good to your dad, and say yay, Dads, yay!  We love you.  We really do.

Whether you're shopping for your dad, your grandfather, or the father of your children, Father's Day gift getting can be tricky. Sure he'll smile and say thanks for any present, but you want a thoughtful and special find that he'll truly enjoy (one that might go down in family history as "the best Father's Day gift ever").Fortunately, we were able to road-test each and every one of these items with the men in our lives, so we're confident that you'll find something here that's just right for even the pickiest of pops!
For your handsome lug: Pacific Shaving Company Shaving Oil and Nick Stick
Most creams or lathers just add a layer of air that the razor has to cut through. Pacific Shaving Oil adds that oh-so-desirable layer of lubrication and moisturizer so the razor doesn’t rip over the surface like sandpaper. Buy Pacific Shaving natural shaving oil here.

Glass Rimmer

For your entertainer:  The Barmaid Drink Rimmer from Lime Tree Cove. Now he can rim his cocktail glass without having to turn it upside down. Add more salt to a margarita glass while it's still full? No problem. For the guy that likes to mix things up! With sets of sugar and salts for all of your favorite beverages - there are plenty of options with this gift.  Buy Lime Tree Cove - Barmaid here.

For your cute klutz: OtterBox Protective Covers for Mobile Technology
There’s an OtterBox for almost every device, including iPods, smartphones, tablet PCs and laptops with varying degrees of protection. OtterBox is designed for all the spontaneous, chaotic, graceless individuals who have ever broken an electronic device due to their active lifestyle.

For your shutterbug: Gorilla Pod Camera Tripod
Thanks to its super grippy feet and multi-jointed legs that bend and rotate, the Gorillapod lets you place your camera just about anywhere—so you’ll never miss that perfect shot. Perch it on a jagged rock, wrap it around a tree branch, or set it on the roof of your minivan. Buy the compact, flexible Gorillapod camera tripod here.
For your handy man: Fortis Design MagWear Magnetic Wristbands

For your cereal lover: MixMyGranola

  • Des Says:

    I have one of the ties and I love to wear it on the few occasions when a tie is required; it really is an "ice breaker." I also have the Citrus Squeezer (which actually works, despite it seeming so illogical.) The shaving oil is amazing! And I followed the advice of one of your "commenters" who suggested for an incredible shave, use the oil AND shaving cream together. I got the smoothest shave ever and it lasted for two days! I'm putting the MagWear wrist band on my wish list.
