Give Dad a Great Gift: Ideas Include Food, Wine, Music, Grooming, Gadgets, & Fashion!

It’s almost Father’s Day and what are you going to give Dad (or Dad to be) for his special day?
Don’t even think about another tie or dress shirt!! Instead check out these more unique items that might suit the dads of many ages and worth the effort & $$ to give him because it will be something that he remembers – and uses– for a long time.
Idea 1
Outback Steakhouse makes it easy to treat Dad like a king and save a few extra bucks in the process. If you bring your dad, husband, brother, uncle (anyone who is a DAD), to Outback Steakhouse on June 15, they’ll receive a $10 certificate valid on their next visit. There is a trick to this offer– so pay attention!!

The certificate the men receive must be activated online at http://outback.com/dadsday where they will be automatically entered in an online sweepstakes to win a $100 gift card. All they have to do is enter the promo code found on the bottom of the $10 certificate.
The certificate can be used at any Outback location from June 18th- July 20th with the minimum purchase of $25 and at Outback Steakhouse, Dad only has to take along another person or two to make that minimum and have a real “guy’s guy” sort of meal!

Idea 2

Grooming for the guy in your life can be a touchy subject but there are a lot of great ideas out there for a guy to check out from this nifty Cole Haan Perri Dopp Kit (available at Cole Haan stores or online). This kit is canvas with leather trim and available in various colors for about $95.00.
NXT Skincare for men is a really cool line.

The bottles light up independently of any known light source (meaning you don’t need batteries or to plug it in). The sleek black packaging is nifty and think of it as a nightlight in the bathroom so you don’t run into the wall. The line features shave gel, face wash and after shave and is available at lots of mass market like Duane Reade,Target, Wal-Mart and CVS.
Don’t like the light? Turn the can on the side- no more light.
Here’s a video embed– the can’s aren’t black/orange and they don’t move.


Does the dad in your life love his showers? Here’s a great product to give dad for getting squeaky clean, body treatment and smelling good all in the same easy to use sponge.
Spongeables has a new scent and group for men– and this is a great gift for any man on the go.

This 4 in 1 sponge cleanses, exfoliates, massages, moisturizes with olive oil, glycerin, vitamin A & E & shea butter.” Shower Gel In a Sponge” that a man actually will use because it doesn’t have any foo-foo smell and it really feels good. Retail is about $12.00!!
Idea 3: Gadgets and Toys
Guys love gadgets!!
Here’s two different gadgets/toys that any guy would like -depending on their personal taste.
For the music/iPod/iPhone lover, there’s the hot new Altec iPhone Speaker Dock which is hot hot hot! Ok– maybe Dad doesn’t have the iPhone but he might want to after he sees this baby. It’s something truly cool and the sound is amazing.

For iPhone’s you can take a call while it’s docked and the music stops when the call comes in and starts up when the call is ended. Great high quality sound that eliminates the intermittant noise/interference from mobile devices.
It also is a UNIVERSAL Apple dock that will charge all new generation iPod models and the iPhone as well. It does have connections for older generation iPods!
$ 200.00 available online and in tons of electronics stores. .
See the other gadget in tomorrow’s blog and also get the 411 on fashion gifts and something interesting to drink!!
This is the end of part 1 of the Father’s Day gift ideas. Stay tuned for tomorrow for MORE ideas.
