Find the Perfect Gift for Dad — Courtesy of Contributor Elisabeth Collazos! #FathersDay #guestblogger

Contributor Elisabeth Collazos shares some fabulous ideas for Father’s Day gifts. She has scoured high and low for some great items that will work for any dad (at any time of year). Her taste is superb and she knows what men like -(and don’t like)- and how to find the most interesting items to gift men!

What to get Dad for Father’s Day? That is the question and I have some creative answers in my Father’s Day Gift Guide. Stop with the ties and the generic gift cards and get original and creative. Here are my picks:

Modify Watches:
Modify Dad with a statement watch. ( These watches are not your ordinary Father’s Day watches. With watches from Modify you cannot go wrong. Whether your Dad is conservative, trendy or a bit in between, Modify has the watch for Dad. The watch faces are removable so that you can mix-and-match faces and straps of all styles from your Modify collection. The strap is made from a soft, comfortable silicone material; the face is made from a scratch-resistant polycarbonate and stainless steel. They are also extremely reasonable in price ranging from $40 to $60.00

Kenneth Cole
If Dad is a bit of a techie, you must take a look at Kenneth Cole Connect. They offer tech-trendy gifts at an affordable price with their sophisticated line of smart watches for $165 and less and boasts 12 versatile unisex styles — from a sleek stainless steel bracelet to bold pops of color — so there really is something for everyone. Kenneth Cole Connect smart watches allow you to “Be Smart With Your Time” by staying discreetly connected with alerts that go straight to your wrist. With Kenneth Cole Connect, this Father’s Day you can take a memorable family selfie — no matter how big your brood — with the ability to take selfies longer than your arm (like a selfie stick)!

If you decide to go with leather, a classic style or sleek stainless steel, Dad will love looking at the time.

Soothe Dad
This is a genius idea. Many men might not admit that they love massages, but they do especially when the massage comes to you. Kids, work stress – it all adds up. I think that my husband would marry me again if I purchased this for him.


Founder and entrepreneur, Merlin Kaufman, explains: “Soothe brings the spa to you, our trained and sought after therapists deliver spa-quality treatments – often within one hour’s notice. Soothe’s easy-to-use online service and mobile app connects customers to a network of over 1000 highly skilled, licensed and insured Soothe massage therapists to travel to a destination and deliver a much-needed massage to tired, sore aching muscles and joints. They offer Swedish, Deep Tissue or Sports massages. They offer couple massages as well. Prices are reasonable and range from $99 (60 minute) to $169.00 (120 minutes). This is a must purchase!


Lastly, Dads do a lot and deserve to be celebrated (in style of course). They love this day so help make it a good one for them. Happy Father’s Day to all of you!
