Father's Day Gift Guide


Father’s Day is just around the corner so we have compiled a gift guide for some great ideas for him this year.

If he loves electronic gadgets, your father is going to love Tablo, an over-the-air DVR that makes it easy to enjoy free HDTV on any portable device. How does it work without incurring the costs associated with cable? This cost-effective solution is simple to use by plugging intoany HDTV antenna to capture free broadcast network programming, including news and sports within the United States and Canada. What makes it even better is the ability to not only watch but pause and record live TV just like you can from your living room but all from the convenience of a mobile device. You can also record different programs simultaneously with unlimited local storage.

Also for the gadget loving Dad is the Philips Hue, an LED bulb that allows you to create and control your home lighting directly from your smart phone. He can create a mood, determine a lighting to help him relax or set up timers to help him wake up each morning. You can turn lights on and off at your home quickly, easily and remotely from anywhere in the world so you no longer have to worry about lighting the house while you are away on vacation. He will love creating unique lightings from his smart phone using a palette to paint with light. Best of all, the lighting system offers an 80 percent energy savings with its cost efficient LED lighting.

For the dad who loves to cook, be sure to check out Zwilling J.A. Henckel’s Miyabi Birchwood 8” Chef’s Knife. This uber sharp Japanese knife is as beautiful as it is strong. The precise blade is designed to chop herbs and vegetables while offering the same precision slicing delicate fish and meats. The Cryodur steel blade isprotected by a 101-layer flower Damascus pattern and is hand honed using a traditional four-step hardening process, which is followed by a sharpening on whetstones with custom grits. Once that is accomplished, the blade is then followed by mirror polishing on a leather wheel. The result truly is a work of art with a comfortable birch handle, red detailing and engraved end cap that offers a look reminiscent of legendary Japanese swords.

If your father loves music, don’t miss the Jabra Rox Wireless Earbuds. The headphones can connect wirelessly via Bluetooth and deliver a powerful and clear sound in Dolby stereo. This might be the easiest way to give up the wires without sacrificing sound quality. The design is based on in-ear monitors used by professional musicians so you know it will deliver incredible sound.

For the golfing dad, we recommend Ogio’s Chamber Cart Bag to protect his clubs while on the course. What makes the bag so unique is that each club is uniquely protected from scratching each other with its silencer club protection membrane, a design unlike any other golf bag we have ever seen. There is a zipperless pocket to contain the golf balls and 10 pockets for housing anything he would like to bring with him on the course. The weather resistant fleece lined pocket is also ideal for holding his cell phone or wallet.

What father doesn’t love to work on home improvement projects? We recommend Ryobi’s18V ONE+18GA Cordless Brad Nailer. From bathroom renovations to installing outdoor carpeting on the deck, this 18 gauge brad nailer features Ryobi’s unique AirStrike Technology, which eliminates the need for loud compressors, bulky hoses or expensive gas cartridges. The wireless feature makes it faster and easier for him to set up on the job. This nailer drives up to 700 nails per charge using a lithium battery (not included).

Cigar loving dads will love Nat Sherman’s lineup of products, which include our favorite, the Timeless 6 Cigar Assortment. The collection contains the original four cigars from the Timeless cigar selection in a gorgeous hand crafted wooden slide top box. It also includes the #2 rated Cigar Aficionado’s #10 in the top 25 cigars of 2012 plus the two newest sizes, the Divinos and the Especiale. This Father’s Day, they are also offering a hand poured soy wax Connecticut shade candle along with a Nat Sherman Extreme 5 Count Humidor (ideal for taking with him on the golf course) and an XIKAR limited edition cigar cutter.

Music loving fathers won’t be able to get enough of their playtunes with V-Moda’s M-100 headphones. These super comfortable earphones are not only unique in that they offer a deep, clean bass but the materials used (a combination of steel and metal) also makes them durable. If he plays lots of video games, the headset contains a BoomPro microphone to transform it into an incredible headset for gamers. We love the super soft earpads that are large enough to offer extra space around the ears and plush so when listening for extended periods of time, there is no discomfort. To personalize, they also offer laser engraving. The V-Moda M-100 headphones are available in Matte Black, Shadow or White Silver.

Every dad today has an iPhone so to give him the added protection the phone needs, check out Grovemade’s sleek SkateCase. Made from recycled skateboard material in Portland, Oregon, each colorful case is handcrafted so no two are the same. The super sleek case will be the topic of conversation for anyone who sees the beautiful design.

If your father loves to cook, be sure to check out Brazilian Fire & Ice’s grilling stones. If he has a barbecue grill, he can transform it into an incredibly healthy surface with the antibacterial and non carcinogenic stone. Used by professional chefs, We love using the handcrafted stone to sizzle steaks, perfectly sear salmon and grill up a perfectly cooked burger. The company also makes chiller stone discs and cubes that can be put into a drink to ensure a cold temperature right down to the last drop.
